Step 4 - Using a GamePack with Mouse & Keyboard
In this section, we will show you how to mouse and keyboard with a GamePack. This consists of making custom changes to Mapping, Tuning, Translator, and the Ballistic Curve.
Open Zen Studio, and click on the Programmer tab, once the tab is open click on the Cronus Zen icon which is located right side of the studio with a blue Cronus logo. You will notice a list of GamePacks in the box positioned to the right. Navigate to a GamePack you wish to use with mouse and keyboard and drag and drop to slot 1 or the next available slot.
Select the options you would like to use in the GamePack Configuration Interface known as GCI, once you are satisfied we strongly recommend exporting your settings in the GCI for quick access, this will save all the settings you personalized, and all you got to do later if you remove the GamePack is to import the GCI Config File when you re-add that GamePack, this will restore your saved GCI settings. Next, you will need to load a profile as covered in Step 2 or you may make your own profile.
Here we will use the Apex Legends: MK Master GamePack as an example. The Apex Legends: MK Master GamePack has recoil tuned for a sensitivity of 7 Hip or greater and 7 ADS or greater, Small Deadzone, Linear Response curve, with Default stick and button layouts. It is recommended to match your in-game and GamePack settings to these as this will minimize setup time.
Click the MK Settings tab and navigate to the mapping box. Make sure your Mouse is connected so you can assign your mouse to the respective controller button. To do this, you need to have a second keyboard and mouse plugged directly into your computer or use a laptop's keyboard and trackpad to activate the mappings or by using an MK Switch shown in Step 1. We must map all buttons from the game you wish to play to the MK.
Mapping the input from both a Mouse and Keyboard are done in the same way and is an easy step process.
In the mapping box, Double Click on the controller button you would like to map with the mouse attached to your computer.
If done properly, the mapped button will change from its current value to "Listening", this indicates to the MK Settings that it is waiting for Input from the keyboard or mouse attached to the A3 or A2 port on your Zen Device.
On the keyboard or mouse attached to your Zen, press the desired input. When done correctly the button within Zen Studio will change to a different color indicating it was properly mapped.
Repeat the steps above until all of your keyboard or mouse inputs are properly mapped for the Primary and Secondary binds along with any auxiliary profiles you may wish to use.
In-Game you can max your sensitivity or leave it to normal, but maxing the sensitivity leaves you with more room to play with when finding your sweet spot in the MK Settings. Every user will not have or use the same sensitivity so this is up to the user to adjust while in-game.
While playing Apex you will need to go into the firing range as it is the best place to make adjustments to your sensitivity and it gives you the best place to test out your settings. You will then need to drag the slider for sensitivity until you have smooth control of your aim. Due to you having a reduced FOV while aiming down sights it is recommended to have a sensitivity of at least 10 higher than your HIP Sensitivity this way you are able to react to targets just as quickly while aiming down sights.
After making adjustments practice for about 5 minutes tracking the moving targets at close medium and far ranges. If you feel it is difficult to keep up with targets simply raise your sensitivity by 0.25 and repeat tracking the moving targets. If the adjustment seems a bit too fast then reduce your sensitivity by 0.05 until you are satisfied with the result.
Having a sensitivity set too low will make it easier to stick to targets combined with in-game Aim Assist. Though you may find it difficult to break away from an enemy at very low sensitivities. If you find it difficult to break away from an enemy increase your sensitivity in 0.25 increments until you are able to break away from targets while retaining the ability to easily track enemies.
Whether using a profile or making one from scratch the settings below allow you to customize all aspects related to right stick movement which controls your aim In-Game. The default values on the Apex Profile from Step 2 will work for the majority of users. Though you are able to take things to the next level and fine-tune each setting to what feels best to you.
