Additional Notes
BF3 is known to suffer from aiming problems like jerky aim and snap back. It seems the higher you set the sensitivity in the game, the more it skips (they probably just multiplied a value without any kind of interpolation or whatnot) And on the PS3 there's an annoyingly high input lag when running it in 720p or above. Symptoms would suggest this is most likely because vertical sync is ON in 720p+, which shouldn't be much of a problem normally, but DICE somehow messed up the buffering.
When running the game in 576p the vertical sync is OFF for some reason (evident by the amount of tearing), giving you much more responsive aim.

This has nothing to do with your TV and until DICE fix these problems there's unfortunately little we can do about the aiming performance since the source of the problems are within the game.

As suggested by Theo in this thread, lowering the sensitivity in the game might help some with the jerkiness (25 out of the 32 steps of sensitivity, for example).
Experiment with this as you please.

Despite this I still prefer to use GIMX over a controller in BF3 and I will continue to work on the config.
I'm going to look into vehicle control when I get the time (most likely multiple profiles, sacrificing ADS switching)
A quick fix for now; I made it possible to accelerate or reverse (tanks, jeeps etc.) using the thumb buttons on your mouse.

Last revisited: January 15th, 2012

Yeah. Somethings up with 30, even though it is about on the dz, it jumps a few values for some reason, and the dz feels square, not sure yet

Just my guesses for now:
Primary
Dz=32 Exp=0.40
Secondary
Dz=32 Exp=0.36

Yup, BF has an elliptical deadzone shape if I'm not mistaken and it makes it a little wonky when aiming diagonally. Not quite like a square dz feel, but not quite like a circle one either. The jumpy aim at just the right deadzone values might perform better in the next release if the smoothing/interpolation works the way I think it will.

All in all it's not bad but it's still not quite Call of Duty. Activision should sell out licenses for other game developers to use their deliciously precise aiming code :)

At the moment I'm using my BC2 conf and it works pretty darn good :D

Nice article McKack, I had to implement something along those lines to fix KZ3's "lag".

I had a few minutes to try the BF3 demo. It's terribly buggy...

The normalized dead zone for the primary config is about 16, and the shape feels like a square.
I played a bit with the 1:1 translation test, and I would say the 1:1 translation exponent is about 0.49.

I won't make further calibration tests with this demo because there still could be changes in the final release, and I need to concentrate on the next GIMX release.

Can you give us a sneak peek to what 0.24 will have?

merci beaucoup

Edit Oct 27th:
Anyone have good conf? There is a weird input lag that I hope will be fixed.

I will be updating the post with an revisited config when I get the game. It'll hopefully arrive tomorrow.
