Ballistics Curves

I’ve run the XIM4 in Destiny with and without modified curves. Curves definitely lend a different feel to look mechanics, and are worth a look. I collected curves from the XIM4 forums and published them here for quick reference.

I’m┬ápresently using a combination of RML’s and thepr0’s ballistic curves. I use RML’s for the Hip profile, and thepr0’s for ADS.

RML’s Curve (Hip)

>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
X4MB:AAAAGgA0AC4AMAAwAC4AMgAwADEANQAxADEAMgAwAA0aJzRBTlxreoyescjIyMjIyMjI:X4MB
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<

Set Boost to 500

thepr0's Curve (ADS)

>>> XIM4 [Mouse Ballistics] START PASTE >>>
X4MB:AAAAGgA0AC4AMAAwAC4AMgAwADEANgAwADQAMAA1AA8cKDI8RlBaZG54goyWoKq0xMjI:X4MB
<<< XIM4 END PASTE <<<

Set Y/X Ratio to 1.23

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.

Secondary button bindings can also be used to make a XIM4-native macro. You can create a super macro by binding both Melee and Throw Grenade to a single keystroke like DrLupo does in his XIM4 settings.

DrLupo's Destiny XIM4 Settings
DrLupo has publicly shared his XIM4 config, updated for Destiny 2.5.0.2, on February 28, 2017 at imgur.com/a/DI8P7

DrLupo previously used RML's curves in his XIM4 config for Destiny. I collected those curves, and others, on this page for ease of reference.

Historical Settings

These are sensitivities that I've used in the past with various configurations. Perhaps they can serve as a base for further tuning.
