Difference between PC and PS4 st?
« on: 07:27 AM - 07/27/22 »
Hi, I play cod and fortnite on the computer with a PS4 controller, mouse and keyboard with Xim Apex.
 I've always used the ST for PS4 for games.

 What is the difference between the PS4 and the PC ST?
 Is it better if I play on PC?

 Will I still have the aim assist in games or will it be toned down with the PC ST?

The PS4 ST is made for the PS4 version of the game. The PC option usually shares the Xbox ST, if not then it uses it's own PC version of support. When creating the game config you should generally choose the platform that you're playing on.

ok thanks so the st has nothing to do with the aim assist.

The aim assist is just as strong as with the PS4 st if I copy my config 1:1?

Given how the aim mechanics are usually different per platform the smart translators inside their respective platform configs are too. As a result using the config of another platform usually results in less optimal mouse movements such as worse micro movements or mouse acceleration.
These two are known to play a role when it comes to aim assist though. So yes it is possible that using the config of a different platform results in more or less aim assist.
