  1. Here's the summary of what's new in the PC Driver Release April 3, 2019 Default Profile Instead of the profile that was active when settings were last saved being loaded when the driver connects to your Z, the default profile can now be set manually via a checkbox on the Profile Settings page. Auto Profile Switching Applications can now be linked to profiles via the Profiles Settings page, or the profile right click menu. When an application which is linked to a profile gains focus in Windows, its linked profile will be set as active automatically. Or if an app

  2. Hi Swiftpoint users, Dan here from Swiftpoint. I want to address your concerns regarding the Swiftpoint Z Driver updates. As a relatively small company, we're very proud of the product we've created with the help of the crowdfunding community and our early backers. We believe we've built the best gaming mouse in the world and have many testimonials from users who also share that belief. We've had lots of constructive feedback from you, our community of users, as to what you'd like to see added or changed and we’ve compiled a list of potential improvements to our driver software.

  3. @CodeBerry I can confirm that our new software will also support the Z. So the new user-friendly interface, pre-configured profiles and action libraries will also be available to all Z users.

    I've been running this PUBG profile for months now and I'm very comfortable with it. I guess the main goal was to minimise panic keyboard presses but I ended up having more fun in-game with everything bound to the mouse. Once you get used to it and make it your own, the enjoyment level increases 10 fold The only things I've got bound to the keyboard that I use are: Crouch - C | Prone - X | Interact - F | Reload - R | Unarm - Q | Toggle Fire Rate - E. A few quick mentions about the other bindings that you'll either have to change in-game or tweak the .SPCF: Peek

    This profile has been modified to allow you to edit the outputs on the left mouse buttons press and release. It uses a nested left button input which is set to act as left click, but unlike the base left button input this can be edited.

  6. Not a lot of people may know about this program and how amazing it is, and with the absolutely amazing amount of versatility this mouse has, I feel like I should tell you all how I use my Swiftpoint Z. Up to this point, I have not been directly using the Swiftpoint Driver software for a lot of the things that I do on my Swiftpoint Z. I've set up all of the buttons like you normally would, but I bound them all to Joystick Button keys. Here's an example: The reason for this is because of a program called JoyToKey. The software is free to use, and nothing is locked behind the paid

  11. Hi everyone, I hope this is the right place to post this, please move if there is a more appropriate forum. I find using Sub-profiles useful, however having to open the UI to navigate through them is slow. Ultimately I'd like to see an auto profile switch feature added (hint, hint), however until then I've added the following controls to navigate up and down the profile branch using the Left Trigger. This complements the already existing Next and Previous profile controls assigned the the Front Edge buttons when the mouse is tilted into Config mode. Go to 'Global Defaults',

  12. Holy cow this thing is amazing. I just saw this today and happened to read that it had tilt controls. "What?!" ok this bares further investigation. 20 minutes later I'm shelling out $200 and feeling like I'm ripping you guys off. This thing is incredible. I will post updates in here as I use it in various games. The big one I want to use it for is Star Citizen. I have Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog and that is great for flying the ships but I needed a mouse with more options, well I found one.

  13. As already stated and as Bryce mentioned in at least one post/tutorial, you can go into device manager and disable(not uninstall, just disable) the game controller HID associated with the Z. I also had to do this, because certain games like mirrors edge can not handle controller and mouse being connected at once and just go spinning, when there is a controller present

  14. We've been doing closed Alpha testing for a while now. So I'll push out a version to the beta test group in the near future. Public release will of course be before Tracer starts shipping in October, but how much before will depend on how testing progresses. Some Z specific features will not be part of the re-designed interface on launch (e.g. OLED & Tilt). But all of that functionality will still be available in the new software via an updated version of the old interface.

  15. The profile features are almost where they need to be, at least to keep me happy, but the problem I regularly face is with re-using profiles across different machines. For example, I set up a profile for Ghost Recon: Breakpoint, unimaginatively named "GRB", and it's under the top-level "FPS" profile on machine number one. Now that I've tweaked it the way I like, I can export it from machine one and import it to machine two. But when I do so, it's always imported at the top-level, not under the "FPS" profile on machine two. I suppose I could simply export ALL profiles from machine one and

  16. Hey, just wanted to answer a few issues you found. You can clone a profile. right click it and click duplicate. easy peezy. Though you cannot move from the current parent profile. which hopefully will be added in the next update (apparently they are actually working on a major update to the software... or so they say.) Subprofiles DO use any bindings on the parent profile, assuming you have not created a new, empty binding. Though, I feel that when you add a fresh binding it should contain the parents binding(s) instead of an empty one so people don't get all confused like you have.

  17. I am quite happy with this setup for my druid which has a hybrid tank/DD talent build. 1. Tilt: - Left = Shift to Cat form (and change mouse profile to CAT) - Right = Shift to Bear from (and change mouse profile to BEAR) - Forward = Shift to Travel form I recommend an add-on so you can also change your equipment automatically 2. Middle mouse button klick = Shapeshift 3. Index finger for all attacks 4. Middle finger for form specific casts 5. I use the left mouse button deep klick to shift to travel form 6. As Cat DPS my rotation is shred-shred-shapeshift

Hi everyone and specially developers of The Z mouse. * PLEASE SPECIALLY READ THE LAST SUGGESTION IN SOFTWARE, IT IS A CRITICAL SOLUTION FOR MEMORY SPACE PROFILES* First of all, I am confident enough to say that I may be one of the most senior users of the Z mouse. I am using it since Kickstarter and I already have 3 of them, why? simple confidence and I use them in 3 different scenarios with 3 different computers. Of course, I am not the only one using in an intensive and hardcore mode (people feeling offended suddenly stops!), so please any other user with knowledge an

  19. Actually the driver of the Z Mouse does not use any keyboard layout at all. The driver registers keycodes, in other words it only cares which fisical key was pressed, not which character is linked to it. I recommend to use 'record keystrokes" function, then you wont have to lookup a keyboard layout to figure out which character to use.

  20. Hi, hello and greetings. As the title implies, I am about to ask why there is only US QWERTY layout for the mouse output. I can see that in the FAQ that is almost 2 years old that people asked about it back then too. I backed the mouse, and I think when I got it I noticed it was kinda wonky back then, but decided not to care too much about it. That is until right now, when I am trying to configure my mouse in a myriad of ways but end up getting cockblocked by the layout barrier. And sure, I can just look at a US Layout sheet to find out what keys to use and all that easily enough. But if

Below is a transcript of a conversation I had some weeks back with Bryce who was a great help but unfortunately my problem still isn't resolved. If anyone else enjoys GTA V with their Z Mouse or can help me with resolving this problem then please read on.

  23. Just saw a job opening for a Software Engineer at Swiftpoint No idea why Swiftpoint don't promote this within their community. It's likely there are many people who use their products that are in the software profession. These people already have love for the hardware and a desire to make the software better. As great as it is to see some unofficial news on Swiftpoint's software development, I personally I don't agree with the methodology of how they are building their drivers. As @Damir and I talked about in the Driver Features and UI Design post, we'd love to see the driver split int

  24. <Rant> Hi, is there going to be a timeline for the MacOS compatible driver to be released? I understand that The Z works completely independent of the driver (it works on the firmware level, similar to my QMK equipped Ergodox EZ). So, my question will be, is it that hard to release a "configurator interface" that generates some kind of a compiled script that can upload to the MCU of the mouse for MacOS? Even my Ergodox has a MacOS compatible flash utility. I could care less if I need to open a configuration file of some kind, and edit it by hand, and then compile it, then flash it m

    I wanted to use this setup for a few weeks before reviewing, today is the day! Outstanding. Its a 5 star setup. Honestly, its a very well thought out profile, peak and ads = genius, cook and vibrate nades = game changer, higher dpi on lmb to counter recoil = mindblown! Even using the triggers to then allow further actions, it's just making the most of this perfect piece of engineering. If you really want to make the most of your Z and you enjoy pubg, grab this profile and give a few weeks to get used to, once you have, oh my, you will not go back. Kudos to @Priimate

  25. I may be wrong but i'm not sure that you can overwrite the default left mouse behavior for normal clicks but you can change the deep click. If the game you are playing uses the left mouse button I think you can set you mouse like this below to achieve your goal. In this case a normal click should only be press and release, and a deep click will keep tapping it. If for some reason this did not work for you maybe you could add a Left Click Release action as action 1 and then loop from action 2, but i don't think that it is required. I tested both ways and they seemed to do the same thing for me.

  27. @Andrew T. It is not currently possible to adjust the Z's polling rate, but a polling rate setting will be added in the next driver update. In the meantime you can disable the "Show window contents while dragging" option in Windows to avoid this kind of lag, as shown below.

  29. @Oleg Girko If you (or anyone else) are still interested in creating Linux software for the Z, please find the specification for the Z's raw sensor events below. This should give you all the info you need to enable the raw outputs for all of the Z's inputs (they are disabled by default), and show you how to interpret that output. If you have any questions on the specifics they're likely to go over my head. But I can try to pass a few on to our devs if necessary. Z Raw Sensor Events Specification.pdf

  31. There were couple of other driver/firmware updates we had in the pipeline which we hoped to include with 1.2.48. But when it become clear these would take more time to prepare we decided not to hold back the Chinese translation to wait for them. I've perhaps been too hesitant to speak about driver updates, as things don't always go to plan. But we're now in the process of putting more development resources back onto the Z. So updates are coming (both bug fixes and new features), and we will have more substantial news to share regarding these in the coming weeks.

  32. It might be that instant is just too fast execution for the program you are using the loop with, so adding an other wait command before the repeat might fix this, like 10ms wait or you could even try 1ms but that propably wouldn't change the behavior from current much.

Lower thumb button is mapped for R key (for reloading and quick rotating the walls) 4. Upper Thumb butto

If you want to press a button to have it move the mouse cursor, go to the "Mouse" tab. It looks like this; This is most useful for when you have a game controller such as a steering wheel or flight stick, where using your mouse may be inconvenient. You set the speed you want your mouse cursor to go at with the "Cursor movement" sliders. When you press that button, the specified cursor speed will be applied fully. In the cas

I can see I'm a little late to the party though, still I hope I can get some feedback myself, maybe help some new users and get others interested. This mouse deserves so much (more) attention and credit, it is entirely unique and utterly remarkable. Anyway, I bought my Swiftpoint Z very recently after much research and deliberation. I've spent a good 48+ hours now (most of that consecutively without sleep 😅) tinkering and eventually setting up my Z. As a result I have some lingering questi

  43. Unfortunately GTAV does not have support for the DirectInput joystick outputs the Z uses for its analog tilt outputs. Though it is possible to convert DirectInput into Xinput which GTAV does support. Just check the link below for a brief guide on how this can be done. https://community.swiftpoint.com/topic/7-how-to-use-the-z-in-games-that-do-not-support-directinput/ I'm not familiar with "Heroes and Generals" but based on its Steam page it doesn't have any controller support. So while you could use tilt for flying , you would need to setup your Z to output a keypress for yaw, pitch

  46. You can make multiple DPI levels with seperate X and Y axes in profiles settings and then apply the levels to button press and release. (sadly you can't go to zero DPI, 100 is the lowest) And here the bottom thump button will use the level 2 setting when pressed and go backto level 1 when it's released:

  47. The problem with Star Citizen's way of handling the controllers comes from its Crytek roots. It doesn't really recognise them itself like games that are smarter do, it relies on the Windows controller order. Windows can sometimes change this order rather arbitarily, especially when you introduce new controllers or plug the old ones in different ports. You can check your order in "Game controller settings". I have a HOTAS, pedals and an EDTracker so I am more familiar with this issue than I would want to be. Oddly enough, Windows plonked the Z right in the middle of the list but my SC controls
