  1. @SilentManThese contact points are not currently utilized, but they could allow for expansion of the Z's hardware features in the future.
  2. I'm not certain which versions of Office this add-in supports, but perhaps it does not support yours? I tested it with Office 365 and just needed to run the INSTALL.bat file, then close and re-open Excel to get it working.
  3. @MrBig1028 It's not possible to assign copy-paste to the GT directly with its own configuration options. However this can be achieved by using a third-party application like X-Mouse Button Control. Which can intercept mouse inputs and convert them into something else. So for example you could set your GT to output mouse buttons 4 and 5 on the two mouse button combos. Then use the setup below so X-Mouse Button Control will convert these into copy paste. The situation with horizontal scrolling In excel under Windows 7 is unfortunately a bit more complicated than it should be. Since by default Excel does not have a shortcut for horizontal scrolling. On Windows 10 the GTs Gesture Technology driver allows horizontal scrolling by using touch inputs, but these are not supported on Windows 7. So instead you'll need to use the Excel add-in linked below which enables horizontal scrolling via the "Shift + Scroll-Wheel" shortcut. https://github.com/T800G/OfficeScroll Once you have this installed and confirm it is working, you can use X-Mouse Button Control again to send the Shift+Scroll-wheel command when applicable, as below. I've attached the XMBC profiles below if you want to try this approach. I haven't tested it thoroughly so it may need some tweaks, but it does work. XMBC - Example.xmbcp
  4. @ifixit Mike's setup should work no matter how your profiles are arranged. If you are in a sub profile, just use "Left Trigger Pull" to move up to its parent, then the edge buttons to cycle between profiles on the "Parent" level. Then if you want to access another sub profile, navigate to its parent and use "Left Trigger Push" to drop down again.
  5. If you are using a Non-QWERTY keyboard layout some of the Z's keyboard outputs will be swapped by Windows; since they are always in the QWERTY format. The way to workaround this is to look at the position the key you want to output occupies on your keyboard, then assign the key that has this same position on the QWERTY layout. Windows will perform its conversion on the output and you should end up with the key you wanted. For example if you were using the a QWERTZ (German) layout and wanted to output a "^" you would need to assign "` OR ~" from the symbols category instead. QWERTZ (German) QWERTY (US)
  6. @Nordlp The GT's scroll-wheel direction can be reversed on Windows using the cloud config page. Just set the switch on the bottom of your GT to config and this should open automatically. Then just follow the on-screen instructions to access the config menu. From there go to "Configuration" > "Customize settings" and the option to set the scroll-wheel direction can be found further down the list (as shown below)
  7. I haven't played the Witcher 3 in a while, and don't currently have it installed on my work PC to test, but from memory what you describe sounds like it should work. My only initial thought is that the wait times may be required between the release and press inputs, rather than the other way around. As in the example below. Though perhaps the middle "Shift Tap" should also be a press and release with a short wait time between?
  8. Here's the summary of the changes in the PC Driver released May 23rd, 2018 Improvements and bug fixes Added Chinese translation.
  9. Unfortunately cutting a hole through the flight stick extender would not allow for mouse movement. As the optical sensor will be too far from the mousing surface to track anything, even when using the maximum lift off height. We prototyped a lower profile attachment which allowed for both pitch and roll with mouse movement. But unfortunately we could not resolve the problem of the sensor getting out of range; particularly when tilting forward, or combining two axes simultaneously (left+back, right+forward etc.). It might be possible to set up something that works for mouse movement, roll, pitch, and yaw. But it would require compromises to one or more of these inputs. So the best solution right now is generally the tilt feet, which easily allow for everything except pitch; and even pitch can be used, just not optimally.
  10. 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.
  11. @BryceThompson Currently in order to change the mappings saved to the Z's firmware you will need access to the Swiftpoint Driver on Windows. As the configuration method used on Mac does not modify the Z's mappings at the firmware level. A Mac configurator that works like the Windows one is in the works. But for now you will need access to Windows to make changes to mappings for use on Console.
  12. Further to @doublehooksta comment, the Map All profile is intended for use on Mac with Better Touch Tools. As a means of allowing customization on Mac until our own Z configuration tool for Mac is available. You can find further details on how to use the Z with Better Touch Tools at the link below. https://www.swiftpoint.com/macdriver-help/
  13. Hi @madkurt The next firmware update is currently looking like it will contain a couple new options to allow the disabling of tilt calibration, and the auto button release fail-safe. After this there are a few other fixes which we want to add, but once those are in place force calibration will be near the top of the priority list for firmware changes.
  14. Hi @muhd firdaus zukki, Due to the GT's compact design the batteries are non-replaceable. But the GT's battery life should not degrade significantly for many years of normal usage.
  15. @ifixit Sorry for the slow response. I'm glad to hear you found a solution that works for you, and are enjoying exploring the possibilities of the Z. Regarding your queries on binding a profile, and auto profile switching. You may have discovered that you can bind profiles to any input on the Z under the "Set Profile / Reset Angles" output category. But if not, you can see examples of this in the "Global Defaults" profiles config mode (Tilt Right 25° + edge buttons) Auto profile switching on application launch is often requested, and is a planned feature for the Swiftpoint Driver. Though there are a few other changes which will likely come first.
  16. Hi @ifixit, Are you trying to create a push to talk toggle key? i.e. press it once to activate, then again to deactivate? If so please refer to the thread below, as for now a workaround is required to keep a keypress active while you are not pressing any physical mouse buttons. https://community.swiftpoint.com/topic/10-enabling-toggle-outputs/ Or if I've misunderstood, could you please attach a screenshot of this mapping, or your exported profile so I can see if anything else could be causing this?
  17. Hi @dukevin, If joystick buttons are working then the axes definitely should also be recognized. That is provided of course the profile you are using has the joystick axes, or slider bound to one if the Z's inputs (example below). You should be able to quickly test it is working correctly using the default Gaming Analog profile, which has the main joystick X and Y axes set to the Z's tilt inputs.
  18. @nnyljh The GT will enter a low power state if left idle for a time. Exactly how long this takes depends on which method you are using to connect to the GT. It will go to sleep quicker when using the USB receiver, as it is able to wake and re-connect so quickly it is barely noticeable. Over Bluetooth the GT will remain awake for longer to avoid the longer wake-up time, but still enters the same low power state. For the best battery performance we would still recommend switching the GT off when not in use for longer duration's, but this is not required.
  19. When you say all the buttons are working in Elite, do you just mean the mouse buttons with keyboard or mouse outputs? Or are joystick buttons 1-32 working as well? Also can you just confirm that your Z's joystick outputs are registering on the Windows controller properties screen that you provided a screenshot of? And if so, that you have tried to map these outputs to controls within Elites settings?
  20. Hi @Prophecy_Designs As you know unfortunately I don't have a solution for this yet. But I'll outline the problem below in-case someone with better knowledge of Photoshop than I has any ideas for a workaround. The problem is that the shortcut keys used to adjust brush size in Photoshop are disabled while left click is held down. So you can't increase or decrease brush size with keyboard shortcuts as you draw. The only way of configuring around this limitation that I've found is to have the Z release mouse one, press '[' or ']', then press mouse one again, each time you change deep click levels. However doing this results in gaps in any lines you are drawing whenever the brush size changes. So long term I think the only solution will be deeper integration with Photoshop, to allow the Z to behave more like a drawing tablet and bypass the limitations on keyboard shortcuts. I can't say for sure when or if we will be able to do this. But this is something we will be looking into.
  21. @dukevin As Elite has DirectInput support the Zs controller inputs should be recognized and bindable in its settings. However it may be having trouble due to other DirectInput devices being connected at the same time. If you try disconnecting these are your Zs outputs recognized in Elite? Regarding your second point, is your Z not working for moving you cursor anywhere in Elite? Or just not for moving your cross-hair?
  22. @dazzafox It sounds like there might be a problem with one of your drivers configuration files. Re-installing the the driver may not resolve this, so please try going to the directory below and performing the following steps. C:\Users\%USERNAME%\AppData\Local\SwiftpointDriver\ Delete the "SwiftpointDriver.exe_Url_qzdtbxss3gu1qjnvm500zujevrmyo5ip" folder. If the driver still crashes on launch, move your "SwiftpointDriverConfig.spcf" file out of the "Swiftpoint Settings" folder. (This file contains your custom profiles and mappings, so only delete it if you have already backed these up to another file, or do not mind recreating them from scratch.) Trying launching the driver again. If this second step resolved the issue there was likely a problem with your mappings file. If it contains mappings you want to recover please attach it and I'll check if it can be recovered.
  23. @giljae Unfortunately I don't think Splashtop on iOS currently supports the GT's middle mouse function (Holding left click, then tapping right click). However it should be possible for them to add support, as at least one of the GTs other supported iOS apps (Jump Desktop) does have support for the middle mouse function. So if this is a feature you would like to see added to Splashtop, I would recommend contacting Splashtop directly to request they add it.
  24. The attached profile is the equivalent of our PUBG test profile, but should work correctly with the AZERTY layout. In general though you might be better off using a profile like the one below; then setting your key-binds in game. https://community.swiftpoint.com/files/file/14-general-gaming-numpad-version/ As this profile uses numpad keys that are consistent between QWERTY and AZERTY, it will allow you to avoid the conversion issue in most games. PUBG -Test (AZERY).spcf
  25. Hi @cariboudundee, You're correct that currently the Z's keyboard outputs are in the QWERTY format. Unfortunately since windows applies its keyboard layout setting to all connected devices, this issue will arise when using any two devices with different keyboard layouts on one system. Hopefully we can add other keyboard layout options for the Z in a firmware or driver update. But for now the only solution is to keep the conversion in mind when you are setting up your mappings. The table in the link below will help with this. Just lookup the key you want to output in the AZERTY list, then instead output the key from the QWERTY column if it is different. http://claude.segeral.pagesperso-orange.fr/qwerazer/
