  1. @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.

  2. 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

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. After using this mouse, I've come to the realization that finger presses are incredibly weak in FPS games, since you either have to remove your index finger or heavily tax it with two extra buttons (Fingertip + Trigger), the index finger is the most important finger in FPS games since it controls the left click giving you the ultimatum on whether to shoot or not, whereas the thumb seems to be the most versatile finger to use with a mouse in FPS games, but the Swiftpoint has under invested in it and instead focuses on finger buttons. I can tell even over taxing your right finger pulls at the mu

  7. Hey! Thanks for listening to the community and keeping us toghether! ❤️ I just found this tiny bug: These are my settings (0.040 seconds) but this is how it gets displayed: Tiny bug. Also some feedback on the new tilt icons. The new ones: Versus a suggestion (using the old icons): Having it called roll, pitch, and yaw is increadibly useful specially because the joystick functionality is heavily advertised. Using 3 words for 3 different movements really helps! Specially foreigners and people who are not fluent in the language. The

  8. Unfortunately, I have had a paralyzed left arm for 20 years. Therefore, although I would very much like to, I can hardly play with it. I've tried a lot of mouses with as many mouse buttons as possible in order to still be able to play with one hand. The only thing I miss to play is a small joystick on my thumb to move around in the game. At the moment I am using the ROCCAT TYON. - If my mouse still had a joystick, I could finally play again. I think that there are very many in a similar situation. Of all the mouses on the market, it would be incredible if there was one that would allo

    uses the mouse hybrid, thus a joystick to steer your spaceship and as regular mouse thumb buttons: property + missions left fingertip: menu back, deep click: exit all menus right fingertip: interact left trigger push: boost right trigger pusg: stop middle mouse button: primary fire left trigger pull: secondary fire front edge: travel mode rear edge: pause game I did some change of the original X4 keybindings to match the above settings. Hope it helps someone!

    I´m using the profile now and it´s working great. I switched only "Mic Push to Talk" and "Secondary Weapon".

  10. Just saw the new crowd funding campaign for the TRACER. Very interesting, not for the device itself (as we have the Z) but for the software. I'm glad the software has been revamped and it looks like someone saw my Driver Features and UI Design post, as many of the ideas and features look very similar. Can I please get confirmation from Swiftpoint that this software will be compatible with the Z? Surely you will have the sense to have one driver for both devices. @Bryce

  11. The main goal was to simplify things for new users who were overwhelmed by the Zs current interface. So to keep things simple much of the Z's advanced functionality is not included in the new interface. Instead it is available to Z users in "Expert Mode" which can be accessed via a button in the new interface; and will be very familiar to you. Auto profile switching is definitely more valuable for productivity than gaming. But since Tracer is squarely aimed at gaming we chose to focus on that aspect of it in the campaign. We will have more productivity focused things coming after Trace

  12. Congrats on the new mouse. I seriously don't know why any serious computer user (gamer or productivity) doesn't own a Swiftpoint. Best mouse, hands down.

  13. Hello, I'm a newbie here on the forums and a new user in general but I have an awful lot to say. 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

  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. Thank you for the response Bryce! That did it!! I didn't even know about that preference, as I'm sure you've heard before. The strange thing is I have been using the Logitech MX Master 2S for the past couple of years, and the trackpad was never disabled. Apparently, when the external mouse is connected via Bluetooth, the preference operates differently. Thanks again for your help, and AWESOME job on the mouse! One of the best and definitely the most unique experiences I've had with a computer peripheral.

  17. Yeah that alternate on release is a sneaky little trick. I'll happily take a Azeron as a thank you or a comment like at the very least 😉

  18. Just on the sub-/parent profile stuff The reason for that is, to save internal memory, to allow users to create more, fine tuned profiles than otherwise possible. For instance I have 1 general profile for gaming and then like 10 adjusted to different games, to perfectly fit the needs of each game. That would not be possible with any other mouse I know of. The global profile is like the most parent profile, where you add your standard stuff like config mode, or in my instance dpi switches and profile shortcuts, which as long as you don't overwrite them are present on any pro

  19. @MichaelRx We do have a few Z variants in the works. But like the ProPoint in our Pen-grip range; the Z will remain the top tier model in its range for now. So if you're an existing Z user the new variants wont give you a reason to upgrade. But the Zs software will be updated as they are released, so you wont be missing out.

  23. 1 more final idea that I have that may not be completely possible would be a joystick extension to swap with the two thumb buttons. I'm not sure how this is even useful but I would buy it if it was a real thing.

  24. I think the simplest way to do this would be to use an alternate function on release as shown below. So pressing the button starts an infinite loop every-time. But the action on release will alternate between a "Wait 0" (which effectively does nothing), and stopping the loop.

  25. Sorry but I have to charm in. I am also very puzzled and getting more and more annoyed about the issues with the middle mouse button. For over a week now I have my second case where the mouse button is not working correctly. My first Swiftpoint Z middle mouse stopped working completely. I was very happy about getting a replacement mouse at the end of February 2020. But with the new one, which is not even 3 months old, I ran into the same issue as Jdreioe described. Sometimes it works and then it doesn't. Why is the issue with the dust not being addressed by providing a fix from f

  26. Are we going to get another update or is this basically what we have to work with? it's been way to long since an update and the mouse is still being priced £170+ wtf?

  27. @MichaelRx Other than the changes I mentioned above the basic specifications (optical sensor, micro, on-board memory etc.) will be the same as the Z. At least in the first models introduced. @Heoot The Z's software and firmware will continue to be updated as we introduce new features with the new models in the professional range. But in terms of hardware changes I can't confirm anything yet.

  28. Has the Pointer Movement been removed or am i missing something? I use it to keep the mouse pointer moving while using mouse movement, if anyone has another way to do this i would appreciate it.

  29. Comrades is very simple how I see it. Swifpoint is a company founded by type of Wozniaks engineer but there is no any one who does the Steve Jobs role. The company doesn't have good strategies in terms of keeping a good reputation of their products, not for the current users neither for the potential ones. The mouse has a lot of issues specially the software part, and the last update was like June? And is a very young product, normally it will receive at least an update ever 3 months or 4 times per year, no 1 per year or every 6 months. Also they may have internal problems ab

  30. One thing you can do is to map scroll left/right to scroll wheel push/pull nested within another key press. I configured it to the right finger tip deep click 50% then scroll wheel push/pull.

  31. This appears to scale based on what the DPI is so I am guessing this is referring to pixels. 1 unit = 1 pixel. It would be awesome if we could set what the units were and manually configure what measurements we wanted it to use for the units whether it was Millimeters, inches, or pixels

    I got my Swiftpoint Z yesterday and was a little disappointed that there wasn't many submitted profiles for games yet so I figured I would help fix this. This Destiny profile has taken a fair bit of tuning testing and more tuning but it's now at a point that I'm pretty happy with. The lvl of customization that this mouse offers is amazing. All major actions in Destiny have been mapped. I have also configured the right mouse button to change DPI settings at 45% force and change them back at 35% force. This means that you can change to a lower DPI setting when you are

  33. As far as I can see, you may as well stop developing the Z any further. I think you've cracked it to be honest, and it already has more features than ive got uses for. So kick back and relax a bit. Job Done.

  34. 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.

    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.

  37. I don't know if that's stupid, but what if Swiftpoint hooked Linustechtips or HardwareCannucks up with a sample? The point is, Swiftpoint is not really a big company I suppose, so they don't get that much attention (I also found the mouse "by accident", when looking for a suitable replacement for my Roccat Tyon)

  38. @bodyboarder2528 To use the Z's analog tilt controls for Flight in Arma 3 you can start with the "Gaming Analog" profile, which has tilts on both axes set to joystick outputs; or you can add these outputs to your own profile as below. With this setup, you should just need to go into Arma's keybinds, find the flight controls for each axis and tilt the Z in the appropriate direction. Pivot can also be setup for Yaw on button press as in the example below.

  39. 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

  40. Hi Bryce, It seems that the noise level value is resetting to 0.5° after a short period of use. To solve the delay issue I was attempting to set it the noise level to see if it was an issue of me still tilting the mouse whilst moving it. Right now I have set the tilt to 1.0° and I will not change the settings manually. I will check back periodically to see if it once again has changed.
