@Matlo I've managed to actually get my mouse to move up,down,left, right when telling it to. But no matter what I change in my config it is super laggy an jittery. I've played with x/y ratio, sensitivity, acceleration, etc. I want to change the polling rate of my mouse. An see if it resolves my issue. Will you please let me know how to do so. All I know is I have to open a terminal, I read the thread about it. Didn't really explain as to how exactly. My mouses polling rate is 1,000 hz. What would you recommend changing it to? I really want to get things working. Thanks

All config editors like gimx config gimx fpsconfig and mouse calibration edits the same value so if you save in one it will show up in the other one. For easy adjusting x/y ratio i recommend using mouse calibration or fpsconfig

This information is already available on the wiki - https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Ax ... parameters

If config is laggy then dz is too high or acceleration is too low. Jittery is as I said earlier. I don't have Xbox One to test. Sorry.

Great news! Finally got it working. After some research I found out the native mouse polling rate of the Pi3 is only 62.5 And as I thought changing that fixed my issue. Thanks for all the help guys! Now it's a learning curve getting used to mouse an keyboard.

That's really low value, how did you change it?

@Godlike I had to edit the boot/cmdline.txt of the Pi. Set it as usbhid.mousepoll=1 which if I remember correctly it is 1,000hz instead of the default. Works like a charm now.
