Advanced Calibration 3.0 Instructional Video
The new features in the new Advanced Calibration system in Firmware 3.0:
- 5 Point Deadzone Neutralization System (the additional points vastly improve the Eagle Eye’s performance ingame)
- X and Y Relationship
- Angle Correction (improvements in mouse movement calibration)
- Rotation Speed Limit (improvements in mouse movement calibration while aiming down the sight)
New in Eagle Edit 3.0:
- Scope Mode allows you to have two different Advanced Calibration settings on one keymap (a primary and secondary setting). Pressing and holding the assigned “Initiate Scope Mode” button allows you to calibrate or activate an entirely different Advanced Calibration.
- In this latest version of Eagle Edit 3.0, you are now able to update your Eagle Eye’s firmware quickly in a 32-bit and 64-bit windows OS easily through Eagle Edit 3.0.***Note this is only for future firmware updates after 3.0 and is not meant for updating your Eagle Eye from 1.0/2.0 to 3.0
Important! – Please only perform the Advance Calibration Function when you have read the following instructions to their entirety.
***Note that in order to calibrate your secondary Advanced Calibration setting in game, follow the same directions as if you were calibrating your primary settings, but remember to hold your Scope Mode button throughout the Advanced Calibration setup.
Keys F1-F8 are reserved for Advance Calibration during in-game environment, thus they cannot be mapped to a controller button during key mapping. Please only press these buttons when performing an Advance Calibration. Please see below on how these keys are used.
- F1: Enters 5 Point Deadzone tuning mode (range 1-100)
- F2: Enters X-axis sensitivity tuning mode. (range 1-20)
- F3: Enters Y-axis sensitivity tuning mode. (range 1-20)
- F4: Enters Angle Correction. (range 1-20)
- F5: Enters Rotation Speed Limit mode. (Range 1-127)
- F6: Save settings on Eagle Eye. You could later save the setting on your PC via Advance Calibration Synchronization.
- F7: Reverts back to factory default calibration.
- F8: Exits your current Calibration without saving.
The advance calibration function could be explained in four parts: DeadZone Neutralization, Sensitivity Adjustments, Mouse Movement Adjustment and Advance Calibration Synchronization.
I. Dead Zone Neutralization
The purpose of Deadzone Neutralization is to improve the smoothness of your mouse’s movement, and it is most apparent during micro-movement such as when you are zoomed in. Deadzones are something that are built into each game to a certain degree, but will cause a number of issues with your mouse movement, such as jagged edges, jumpy mouse movements. The purpose here is to eliminate deadzones and improve the smoothness of your mouse movement.
Step 1 – When you are in-game, press F1 (5 Point Deadzone calibration) once and scroll your mouse wheel up several times until you see the crosshair automatically move to the right.
Step 2 – Using the Mouse Wheel, slowly scroll down 1 to 2 wheel clicks at a time until you see the crosshair COMPLETELY stop. We suggest you zoom-in and carefully look at the crosshair’s micro movements during this stage to get the most accurate results. It will move slightly every few seconds towards the end, make sure you scroll down to the point where the crosshair completely stops. Scrolling down more after it completely stops will have an adverse effect on your optimization.
Step 3 – When you come to a complete stop, you have successfully neutralized the first point in the Deadzone Calibration system, thus optimized the X-axis micro movement for that specific game.
Step 4 – Then, after neutralizing the deadzone for this point, proceed to the next point by pressing F1 again and scroll your mouse wheel up several times until you see the crosshair automatically move to the slightly diagonally to the right.
Step 5 – Start scrolling down slowly, 1-2 mouse clicks at a time until you see the crosshair COMPLETELY stop.
Step 6 – This gets repeated for the next 3 points, making sure to press F1 after you neutralize each point. Once you have neutralized each point, press F6 to save your settings.
*Tip: A good way to make this a little easier to calibrate is by pressing F1 once then scrolling up until you see the cross hairs move, then press F6. Then proceed to do this for each point. Once you have done this for each point, by pressing F1, you can cycle through each point, making it easier to visualize the difference in each point. Then neutralize each one, hit F6 to save, until you have no movement when cycling through F1.
*Tip: Pressing F6 after each calibration automatically exits the current calibration and saves your setting, so F1 needs pressed twice if you wish to go back to calibrate deadzone 2, three times for deadzone 3 ect.
Step 7 – Press F7 at any time to restore the sensitivity and deadzone to factory default or F8 to quit the calibration without saving
Step 8 – Press F6 to save your new Deadzone settings on your EEC, which can be saved as a file on your PC later on. Please refer to Advance Calibration Synchronization section III for more detail.
II. Sensitivity Adjustments
The purpose of sensitivity adjustment is to manage the overall speed of your mouse movement.
- You can adjust sensitivity in the game option menu, or do so via Eagle Eye Converter. To adjust sensitivity via Eagle Eye Converter, when are you in-game, press F2 (X-axis sensitivity tuning mode). Scroll up or down slowly until you feel the X-axis movement speed is optimized. Try to remember how many clicks you scrolled up or down. Press F6 to save.
- Press F3 (Y-axis sensitivity tuning mode). Scroll up or down slowly to calibrate the Y sensitivity, but now you will notice that your crosshairs will begin to move up and down and then left to right in a cross like shape to illustrate how your X and Y sensitivity relates to each other. So if you have a good X sensitivity, you want the up and down movement to be approximately equal the left and right movement. You can do this by either scrolling up or down to make the up and down movement as equal to the left to right movement as possible.
- While we recommend the X and Y sensitivity be similar, you might notice for some games the x-axis is more sensitive than the y, or vice versa. You may want to increase the sensitivity of the slower axis in that case.
- Press F7 at any time to restore the sensitivity and deadzone to factory default.
- Press F6 to save your new X/Y sensitivity/deadzone setting on your EEC, which again can be saved as a file on your PC later on. Please refer to Advance Calibration Synchronization section III for more detail.
III. Mouse Movement Adjustment
The purpose of the Mouse Movement adjustment is to reduce any jagged or unsmooth movements caused by small inaccurate micro movements during normal use. This section will be split in two parts: Angle Correction and Rotation Speed Limit
- Angle Correction
While you are in game, you can adjust and increase the straightness of your X and Y axis movement by calibrating the Angle Correction feature of the Advanced Calibration system. What this does is reduce any unintentional diagonal movement that may occur because of human error (when we move our mouse left to right in a straight line, we never move it in a straight line and usually have some micro movements up and down that could affect how straight your movements are executed on screen. By increasing the Angle Correction, your EEC will ignore these slight mouse movements. So if you turn this figure up super high, you will see that it will move perfectly straight up and down/left and right but cannot move diagonally. You want to get max straightness up/down left/right without sacrificing diagonal micro-movement
Step 1- When in game, press F4 (Angle Correction), and begin by slowly scrolling up and be sure to test the mouse movement with each scroll. Scroll up or down slowly until you feel the Angle Correction is optimized. Try to remember how many clicks you scrolled up or down.
Step 2- Press F6 to save your new Angle Correction settings on your EEC, which can be saved as a file on your PC. Please refer to Advance Calibration Synchronization section III below for more detail.
2. Rotation Speed Limit (Optional)
While in game, you can adjust the in-game turning speed. This modification is optional because you are trading speed for accuracy. Every game has a certain point where the turning speed will double: for example when you push your joystick all the way to the right, the equivalent of you moving your mouse steady across the mouse pad, the game thinks that you are trying to turn really fast, so when the turning speed (when you push the joystick to the max in one direction for a certain amount of time) reaches a certain point, it doubles the turning speed, helping you turn faster. This creates a problem when you are moving your mouse fast in circles, because you will sometimes notice a sudden acceleration, effecting accuracy.
Step 1- While in game, Aim crosshairs to the sky and press F5 (Rotation Speed limit tuning) and it will start spinning at the default maximum turning speed.
Step 2- Begin scrolling down until you notice the spin begins to slow down dramatically; we suggest pressing F6 when you notice a dramatic drop in turning speed. Test it out and be sure to remember that while this does improve your aiming accuracy and control, but this will greatly reduce your turning speed. So this is recommended as optional.
Tip: One way to utilize this feature is to use it just for your secondary scope mode settings since you won’t be making rapid 180 turns while aiming down the sight. This way you get more precision when you aim down the sight.
*Note: Press F7 at any time to restore your settings to factory default.
IV. Advance Calibration Synchronization
The purpose of Advance Calibration Synchronization is to download and backup the new Advance Calibration settings, which you just calibrated for that particular game, to your PC. You can share this setting with your friends or with the gaming community. Please feel free to visit our Calibration Database to download existing calibrations contributed by other players, or upload your calibration to share with the community (Database). Please note the game play experience for the same Advanced Calibration settings will vary depending on the game you are playing, the mouse/keyboard you are using, and the Eagle Eye Converter firmware you are currently on.
Step 1- After you are done with the calibration system and have pressed F6 to save your new Advanced Calibration setting on your EEC, your current settings will be temporarily saved on your Eagle Eye Converter in the Key Mapping Memory Slot (Key Map 1 or Key Map 2) you are currently on.
Step 2- Unplug your Eagle Eye Converter, this will officially save your new Advanced Calibration setting on your EEC on your Key Mapping Memory Slot. The act of unplugging your Eagle Eye makes your new settings permanently stored on your EEC key slot until you decide to change it. If your EEC is not disconnected and reconnected the Advanced Calibrations you made, which are only temporally stored, will be lost when switching Key Map Slots.
Step 3 – Plug your Eagle Eye Converter in the USB slot on your PC. Open the Eagle Edit Program and click on the purple “syn” button on the top shortcut commands. The new Advance Calibration settings you have just optimized are now displayed in numeric data on the Eagle Edit Program.
Step 4 – Click on File>Save As>provide a name for your save file such as blackopsG500.km and click on save. You have just officially saved your new Advance Calibration Settings on your PC.
To load this file in the future. Click on File>Load>select the file name and click on Open. The same setting will appear, you can press “Send to Device” to upload the displayed setting to your EEC.
- Adjust the Deadzones first before you adjust the Sensitivity within the Eagle Eye.
- If you feel that you have to adjust the sensitivity of your mouse, tweak it as best as you can in-game, meaning tweak your game’s sensitivity first. Then, use the EEC’s sensitivity function to fine-tune your mouse movements.
- Each game has its own deadzone and sensitivity settings. For the best result, perform advanced calibration on each game, and if you have any trouble or want some starting templates, check either our forums or our Advanced Calibration Database
- Eagle Eye can store up to two Keymaps on its hardware. The Advanced Calibration Setting is attached to each the Key mapping memory slots and each Keymap can now store two different Advanced Calibration settings (displayed as Look mode, primary, and scope mode, secondary).
- For optimal performance we suggest using a mouse, that is known to be compatible (check compatibility list), that has a DPI that goes up to at least 3000.
