My XIM4 Destiny Controller Setup

The most up-to-date copy of this content is at – be sure to check over there for my latest XIM4 Destiny setup.

I’ve been running a XIM4 since April 2015. The keyboard bindings are intuitive, and carried over from my previous keyboard mouse adapter.

Ballistics Curves

For a time, I used the ballistics curves that I found on RML’s thread, posted on the XIM4 community forums (Destiny: My Advanced Setup).

For posterity, I’ve included the curves below:

>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<

>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<

I stopped using them for a while, but went back to them once again recently.

Additional Notes

on DPI settings with the XIM4…
XIM4 User Manual (PDF) states: “Make sure your mouse is running at its maximum DPI”

on Primary & Secondary button bindings…
I’ve leveraged this setting to provide flexibility in controls – I can swap between digital and analog movement without switching to a separate profile, which comes in handy should my PlayStation Move Navigation Controller decide to give up the ghost midway through a game. DrLupo’s XIM settings show another way to use the Secondary button bindings – he binds both Melee and Throw Grenade to “F,” effectively making a XIM4-native macro.
