Works well

Far Cry 4 was the first game from Far Cry series so I wasn’t sure what i could expect from game. Thanks to trial on PS4 Store I could try it before buy. I would strongly recommend to try trial, even it supports only online play. You can try XIM 4 before you buy the game and realize that control is not so convenient as you might expect. Game need fine tuning of setting to get suitable user experience. If you use my settings as base config and you just do small adjustment you should be satisfied with control.

Game is well playable but i must admit that control could be better on PC. Especially aim is little tricky and slow movement cause jitter.


Only problem i found is big jitter in case of using (usually recommended) the biggest sensitivity in game settings. I would recommend to set 19/20 instead of 20/20. Setting lover sensitivity limits jitter and allows better aiming.


Default configuration of profile for Far Cry 4 is really linear (developers of XIM did exactly what is expected, great job!) but some people might prefer little of acceleration during fast movement of mouse. Fortunately this can be tuned with ballistic curve.


Aim is the biggest problem of this game, but since game is not multiplayer competitive and rather multiplayer cooperative you would not be faced to situation that few miliseconds of delay during aiming cause big disadvantage.


Turning is pretty linear and that’d good. Also overloading of inputs happens only with very fast turning. Usually you would not realize it. Adjust sensitivity in XIM app and after that try to adjust ballistic curve.
