  1. You have yaw/pivot, even analog, as said. Here is the tutorial for it
  2. On kickstarter there is a project for a 6dof Joystick But rn I think the backing cost to receive one is around 1000$ Another way of getting 6dof is head tracking or as HoSaS setup. With only one device it is extremely difficult (obviously) and the Z still is a mouse and not a Joystick. Last but not least I get your problem with the naming(kind of) but if you just think for 10 seconds when assigning stuff it's not really a problem, at least I haven't had a problem with associating tilt left right with roll or tilt forward backwards with pitch.
  3. Well the naming makes sense, since both is right, yaw is a pivot-motion, and roll and pitch are tilting motions, so it is easier for people not that familiar with those terms. and having to assign a button for yaw/pivot kinda makes sense, since you should use it as a reset(because it is nearly impossible to keep the mouse in a 0° pivot all the time)
  4. As I stated above, have a look at the lexip mice: at least one of them features an analog thumb stick on the left side of the mouse and a tiltable base, which let's you use the whole mouse as a Joystick similar to the Z.
  5. As I already stated, I never said the DPad on the Tartarus is analog, the normal switches are(2.1mm of "analog" travel[256 states, so around 10nm per state]). I don't care whether you believe anyones marketing are what you consider crappy, I have a Tartarus pro in front of me and my personyl experience tells me, it works extremely well. What I did for example was taking the "WASD" keys(8, 12, 13 and 14 in that case) and assigned the left XBox stick to them, so now I can use that in overwatch to walk slower or faster, denpending on how far I press the key. Also maybe you should consider
  6. Ah ok, I thought you got "pre-fitted" ones But thanks nonetheless
  7. From which company were these mouse feet if I may ask?
  8. The current stable release is still the up to date version, for anything beyond that you have to apply as a beta tester, if you already are one there are instructions for the new update. You also can just easily import the old config files to the new version
  9. 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
  10. You could technically remove the game controller function in device manager
  11. The interface itself is digital, which means, you can pass information in a very precise manner, lets say 16bit resolution, which feels like analog, due to the amount of states it has, but is not truely analog, since it is still something like let's say 256^256 states. Compare it with PWM and voltage controlled fans, the PWM ones are not analog, while voltage controlles ones are. And I never said, the Thumstick(DPad) of the Tartarus is analog, but the keys themselves on the upper side have 256 recoginzeable states over a travel of 2.2mm, which I would say that I am not able to distinctively
  12. If you are looking at it that way, nothing plugged in via USB is analog, since USB is a digital interface. That being said, you may believe Razer's marketing or not, that's on you, I belive what I am using and that is a Tartarus Pro which works extremely well for emulating the left controller stick e.g. You don't need to believe me, but there is no need, to damn things without testing. Also on the keypad side there is Coolermasters ControlPad with Aimpad Technology, which is "analog" as well in the matter, that it can detect how far the key is pressed, and you will not believe it, but that
  13. I don't think, using a analog stick on your mouse while plaing shooters would be a good idea, since it would be kind of hard to use it precisely when flicking around the mouse like hell. Also there is the Lexip mouse which has an analog thumb button. On the keypad side, you could get a tartarus pro and use the analog inputs, to put a controller stick on "WASD", which works surprisinglx and extremely well(I'm doing that in the games, that can handle simultaneous controller and mouse input)
  14. I have FS9/FS2004, which I could use to test a bit around, but you added the analog outputs to the mouse in the software, because otherwise it definitely will not work. Also an interesting behaviour I observed on elite dangerous with my Mad Catz FLY 5, deoending on the control preset you use to customize, it either takes the direct input from the joystick, going around the software(meaning, any macro/hotkey I bind in the Saitek Control software just gets ignored, even though they work anywhere else), which could also be the case with the Z and MS FS, so it might help, to either save it on th
  15. But non rechargable batteries are also bad, cause they might fail on you right in a ranked match, so having a dock for charging seems to be better in my opinion
