  1. Hi @L!qu!d I just did some experimenting with this and one solution would be to move the wait and vibration to the button release instead of press. Since the 'E' Tap is not part of the macro you will still be able to activate it while the macro is running. This will effect the timing a bit, but so long as you are not holding down the button it shouldn't be a problem.
  2. The profile that's loaded when the driver launches is determined by the profile that was active when settings were last saved. Rather than what was active when the driver was closed. So if you want to change the startup profile just set the your desired profile as active, then make a minor change (add and remove a output etc.) so you can save your settings again. I can see how this isn't very intuitive; so we may look at changing this.

    GT: Troubleshooting

    Mouse Buttons Troubleshooting If you are able to move the cursor with your GT but either the front or rear mouse buttons are not responding, please try the steps below. 1. Check if there is a physical fault with the button switch - As the GT responds differently when it is turned on depending on what buttons are held down. You can test if your GTs buttons are physically functional by switching your GT off and on again with different buttons held down and checking how it responds. For reference how the LED should respond is as follows: If no buttons are held down when the GT is switched on the LED will either: Flash once quickly, then remain on for five seconds if it automatically connects to the USB receiver. Flash three times rapidly, then remain on for five seconds if it automatically connects via Bluetooth. If neither the USB receiver or a Bluetooth connection is available when switched on, the LED will flash once, then remain off; unless a button is pressed or the mouse is moved, where it will flash three times rapidly. If either left or right mouse button is held down the LED should flash in a consistent pattern of two quick flashes followed by a pause (indicating Bluetooth pairing mode). If both buttons are held down the LED should behave the same as when only one is held down. However if you continue to hold both buttons after a few seconds the pattern will change to rapid flashing for a few seconds (indicating a factory reset). By testing these three scenarios, you should be able to confirm if either a button is stuck down (you get the response for one button being held down when you are not holding any), or if a button is not working at all. However if the LED is responding as expected in all three cases the buttons themselves must be okay. But something else could be interfering with them. 2. Check the stylus is properly installed, and not stuck down - If the GTs stylus is stuck down it can prevent the left or right mouse buttons from working in their normal manner. So please try temporarily removing your GTs stylus to see if your buttons start working again. You can view a demonstration of how it can be removed and installed here.

    GT: Troubleshooting

    Optical Sensor Troubleshooting If your mouse buttons and scroll-wheel are working, but you are unable to move the cursor, or the cursor is not working correctly; please try the steps below. 1. Check sensor for obstructions and clean sensor - The first thing to check with any mouse movement related issue is that nothing is obstructing the optical sensor. The sensor is located next to the stylus, as shown in the image below. Any hair or dust build up on or around this could cause poor cursor performance, such as drifting or stuttering. More significant obstructions could temporarily stop it functioning at all. So if you can see any signs of build up on the clear plastic part of the sensor gently wipe it down with a slightly damp q-tip, or corner of a microfiber cloth. 2. Check the stylus is properly installed, and not stuck down - The stylus can effect cursor tracking in one of two ways. Firstly if it is loose it can slightly drag along the surface of your mouse mat; even when you are not tilting. Each time it activates while doing this your cursor will stop moving, and instead a scroll or gesture command will be sent. The other possibility is if the stylus has been jammed down completely. If this happens you will not be able to move the cursor at all, left click will still work but right click will only be able to trigger gesture commands, not open context menus etc. In either case the solution is to remove you GT's stylus, check for any problems in its recess; then reinstall it. You can view a demonstration of how the stylus can easily be removed and reinstalled using a paper clip here.

    GT: Troubleshooting

    General GT Troubleshooting If your mouse is not working at all, please try the following steps in sequence: 1. Confirm your GTs battery is charged - to do this, check for activity from the green LED on the top of your GT. It should flash at least once when you switch your GT on. However it it flashes constantly (even when you are not moving the mouse at all) this would indicate the battery is very low on charge. So if it is flashing constantly, or not at all, please charge the mouse by docking it on the USB receiver (plugged into your computer's USB port). Your computer will need to be turned on to charge the mouse. If your mouse has battery charge or the mouse charging LED does not flash when your mouse is docked, please continue to Step 2. 2. Check if your GT has lost its connection to the USB receiver/Bluetooth - Switch your GT on and watch its green LED while you move it on your desk, or click its buttons. If the LED flashes every time you interact with it, this indicates your mouse itself is functional, but cannot find its USB receiver or Bluetooth connection. In which case please proceed to step 3. Any other response from the LED may indicate a problem with the mouse itself, or a partial connection. So if this is the case, please continue to Step 4. 3. Attempt to re-pair with your USB receiver - To pair with the USB receiver: Ensure your USB receiver is attached to your computer Ensure that your mouse is switched to the OFF position Hold down all three (3) buttons on the mouse (front, rear and the stylus underneath) and move the switch from OFF to ON Release the buttons and hold the mouse close to the USB receiver - you should see the led flash several times to indicate pairing If your GT does not connect to its USB receiver after performing these steps please continue to Step 4. 4. Perform a factory reset of your GT - To restore your GT to factory settings, and re-pair it with your USB receiver: Remove any Swiftpoint GT Bluetooth pairings to nearby computers or devices. Make sure your USB receiver is connected to your computer. Make sure your Swiftpoint GT is switched to OFF. While holding down the two top buttons (Front and Rear) switch the Swiftpoint GT from OFF to the ON position. Continue holding both buttons for a full 10 seconds, then release both buttons. Hold your Swiftpoint GT next to the USB receiver and roll the scroll wheel once every few seconds. The LED should give a short flash each time you move the scroll wheel. Then will give one slightly longer flash and stay off once the pairing is complete. (this should only take a few seconds) If the reset procedure is unable to connect your GT to the USB receiver, please try it with another USB port, or continue to step 5. 5. Attempt to re-pair via Bluetooth - Since your GT seems to be unable to connect to its USB receiver, checking if it can pair over Bluetooth would confirm if there is a problem with your mouse itself, or just with the USB receiver. Please just note that the GT requires Bluetooth 4.0 support. Almost all Bluetooth capable devices released in the last 5 years should support BT 4.0. But one notable exception to this is computers that are still running Windows 7. So if you use windows 7, try the steps below with another PC or your phone instead: Ensure that your USB receiver is NOT attached to your computer or device. Remove any existing Swiftpoint GT Bluetooth pairings. Both from the device you are trying to pair with, and any other nearby devices you have connected to previously. Set the Swiftpoint GT to the OFF position and access your computer or devices Bluetooth settings; ensuring that Bluetooth is enabled. Hold down the rear button on your Swiftpoint GT and move the switch to the ON position. Approximately 5-10 seconds later the green LED will begin flashing quickly indicating pairing mode. Select your Swiftpoint GT in the Bluetooth device list and pair the devices (In Windows 10 click "Add Bluetooth or other device" then select Bluetooth to view devices available for pairing) If your GT can successfully pair over Bluetooth, but will still not connect to its USB receiver. There is likely a problem with the receiver itself. If your GT is still under warranty, please contact support to arrange a replacement. Otherwise replacement receivers are available for purchase separately here. Alternately if your GT is also unable to pair over Bluetooth, please contact support. 6. Contact support - If you are still unable to connect with your GT after performing these procedures, please contact us here so that we can assist to diagnose the issue further, or provide a warranty replacement where applicable. Be sure to mention that you have completed these steps along with any details you may have noticed while doing so.

    GT: Troubleshooting

    Swiftpoint GT USB Receiver Troubleshooting If your GT is working correctly over Bluetooth, but you are unable to connect with your USB receiver, please try the following steps in sequence: 1. Re-pair your GT to its receiver - Your GT may have just lost its pairing to your receiver. Please perform the steps below to re-create this pairing. Ensure your USB receiver is attached to your computer Ensure that your mouse is switched to the OFF position Hold down all three (3) buttons on the mouse (front, rear and the stylus underneath) and move the switch from OFF to ON Release the buttons and hold the mouse close to the USB receiver - you should see the led flash several times to indicate pairing If your GT does not connect the its USB receiver after performing this procedure, proceed to step 2. 2. Check if your receiver is still able to charge your GT - Even if your GT is almost fully charged, its green LED should flash for several seconds when placed on the USB receiver for charging. If it does not flash at all, (and your GT is still working correctly over Bluetooth) your receiver may be damaged. In which case please proceed to step 3. If your GTs LED is flashing correctly when placed on the receiver, then proceed to step 4. 3. Check for physical damage to the USB receiver - If your receiver has been left plugged into a laptop while in a bag. Movement in transit can put a lot of strain on the receiver, particularly if your laptop is not firmly held in place in your bag. Damage from this can present as a slight bend, or movement between the black plastic and USB portion of the receiver. If you notice this on your receiver then unfortunately a replacement will be required. In which case they are available for purchase separately here. If there is no bend or movement between the two halves of the receiver, but it is still not charging your GT, please proceed to step 4. 4. Confirm your GT is recognised by your computer - If your USB receiver is not correctly detected by your computer, your GT will not be able to communicate with it. So to confirm it is being recognised, please follow the steps below for your operating system. Windows: Open the Start Menu and click the settings cog almost directly above it. Select Devices. Your USB receiver should appear in the "Mouse, keyboard, & pen" category as a "GesturePoint Mouse Dongle" as shown in the image below. If your USB receiver is not in this list. This could indicate a problem with the USB port your are using, or the receiver itself. So please try connecting your USB receiver to another USB port. Or if you are using a USB hub, try connecting it directly with your PC. Then check again if it appears in the device list. If your GT did not appear in the list at first, but now does after changing USB port, try the pairing process from step 1 again. If your USB receiver does appear in this list, but you are still unable to pair with it. Please proceed to step 5. If your USB receiver will not appear in this list, and your USB ports are working for other devices, proceed to step 6. Mac OS: Press Command + Space bar to open a Spotlight search. Type 'System Information' and press enter. At the bottom of the Hardware category, select USB. Look through the USB Device Tree on the right of the window for a "GesturePoint Mouse Dongle" as shown in the image below. If your USB receiver is not in this list. This could indicate a problem with the USB port your are using, or the receiver itself. So please try connecting your USB receiver to another USB port. Or if you are using a USB hub, try connecting it directly with your PC. Then check again if it appears in the device list. If your GT did not appear in the list at first, but now does after changing USB port, try the pairing process from step 1 again. If your USB receiver does appear in this list, but you are still unable to pair with it. Please proceed to step 5. If your USB receiver will not appear in this list, and your USB ports are working for other devices, proceed to step 6. 5. Perform a Factory Reset of your GT - If your GT still will not connect, performing a factory reset may get it back up and running. The steps to do this are as follows Remove any Swiftpoint GT Bluetooth pairings to nearby computers or devices. Make sure your USB receiver is connected to your computer. Make sure your Swiftpoint GT is switched to OFF. While holding down the two top buttons (Front and Rear) switch the Swiftpoint GT from OFF to the ON position. Continue holding both buttons for a full 10 seconds, then release both buttons. Hold your Swiftpoint GT next to the USB receiver and roll the scroll wheel once every few seconds. The LED should give a short flash each time you move the scroll wheel. Then will give one slightly longer flash and stay off once the pairing is complete. (this should only take a few seconds) If your GT does not connect to the receiver after performing the factory reset, try step 1 once more. As the reset may have resolved the issue that was preventing the regular pairing process from working. If it still will not pair with your receiver please proceed to step 6. 6. Replace USB receiver - Unfortunately if your USB receiver is still not working, there is likely a problem with the receiver itself. If your GT is not physically damaged and still under warranty, please contact support here to arrange a replacement. Otherwise replacement receivers are available for purchase separately here.

    GT: Troubleshooting

    Bluetooth Troubleshooting If your GT will connect to its USB receiver, but you are unable to pair over Bluetooth, please try the following troubleshooting steps: 1. Confirm that your GT is correctly entering Bluetooth pairing mode - When you switch your GT on with one of its buttons held down it should enter Bluetooth pairing mode. This is indicated by the green LED on the top of GT flashing in a consistent pattern of two quick flashes, followed by a pause. If your GTs LED is not flashing in this pattern, please proceed to step 2. If the LED is behaving correctly, but you are still unable to pair with it proceed to step 5. 2. Remove old GT Bluetooth pairings - The most common cause for problems pairing over Bluetooth is if your GT already paired with another nearby device. As it may try to connect to the old pairing rather than creating a new one. So if you are trying to create a new pairing be sure to remove old pairing from any nearby devices first; including the device you are trying to pair to. 3. Unplug your GT's USB receiver - If you USB receiver is plugged in nearby when the GT is switch on it will attempt to pair with this first even if a Bluetooth connection is available. So unplugging it is recommending if you are connecting over Bluetooth. 4. Perform a Factory Reset of your GT - If your GT still will not connect, performing a factory reset may get it back up and running. The steps to do this are as follows Remove any Swiftpoint GT Bluetooth pairings to nearby computers or devices. Make sure your USB receiver is connected to your computer. Make sure your Swiftpoint GT is switched to OFF. While holding down the two top buttons (Front and Rear) switch the Swiftpoint GT from OFF to the ON position. Continue holding both buttons for a full 10 seconds, then release both buttons. Hold your Swiftpoint GT next to the USB receiver and roll the scroll wheel once every few seconds. The LED should give a short flash each time you move the scroll wheel. Then will give one slightly longer flash and stay off once the pairing is complete. (this should only take a few seconds) If your GT is still unable to create a Bluetooth pairing after successfully performing a factory reset. There may be an issue with the device you are trying to pair your GT with. We will begin to investigate this possibility in step 5. 5. Confirm the device you are trying to pair with has Bluetooth 4.0 support. - The Swiftpoint GT uses the Bluetooth 4.0 standard. So if your device does not have compatibility with this it will only be able to pair with the GT by using the USB receiver. Almost all Bluetooth capable devices released in the last 5 years will support BT 4.0. But one notable exception to this is computers that are still running Windows 7. As even if your Bluetooth adapter is Bluetooth 4.0 capable, unfortunately Windows 7 is not. Below is a table of some popular devices and when they first got Bluetooth 4.0 support. Device Models that support BT 4.0 iMac Late 2012 and later Mac Mini Mid 2011 and later Mac Pro Late 2013 and later MacBook Early 2015 and later MacBook Air Mid 2012 and later MacBook Pro Mid 2012 and later iPad Early 2012 and later (3rd gen) iPad Mini/Air/Pro All models support BT 4.0 iPhone 4s and later Samsung Galaxy S3 and later If your device is not in this table, and several years old, you should be able to find its supported Bluetooth version on its manufacturers website. Once you are confident your PC or device supports Bluetooth 4.0 we will now proceed to some general troubleshooting proceed to step 6. 6. General Bluetooth troubleshooting - At this point it is possible the Bluetooth adapter of the PC or device you are pairing with is not functioning correctly. So we will now perform some general troubleshooting steps: Go to your devices Bluetooth settings and turn Bluetooth off and on again. Power your PC or device off, then back on again. Windows 10: Open the Start menu, then select Settings > Update & security > Troubleshoot. Under "Find and fix other problems", select Bluetooth > Run the troubleshooter. iOS (iPad/iPhone): Reset Network Settings: This option can be found under Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Max OS X: Remove your Bluetooth preferences list: This file can cause problems connecting with Bluetooth devices if it is corrupted. Removing it will allow it to be recreated. Open a Finder window and navigate to /Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences. Scroll through the list until you find the file called 'com.apple.Bluetooth.plist'. Select the com.apple.Bluetooth.plist file and drag it to the desktop. This will create a copy of the existing file on your desktop; we're doing this to ensure that we have a backup of the file we're about to delete. Right-click the com.apple.Bluetooth.plist file and select Move to Trash from the pop-up menu. You'll be asked for an administrator password to move the file to the trash. Enter the password and click OK. Close any applications you have open. Restart your Mac. Once you're sure that your Bluetooth problem has been resolved, you can delete the backup copy of com.apple.Bluetooth.plist from your desktop. Should the problem continue, you can restore the backup copy of com.apple.Bluetooth.plist by simply copying it back into the /Macintosh HD/Library/Preferences folder. Reset your Bluetooth hardware module: This Bluetooth debug option restore your Bluetooth module to default settings, which will also remove all connected Bluetooth devices. From the OS X desktop, hold down the Shift+Option keys and then click on the Bluetooth menu item to reveal the hidden Debug menu. From the drop-down menu select Debug, Remove all Devices. Now open the Bluetooth menu again with Shift+Option held down, and select the “Reset the Bluetooth module” option. Select Debug, “Reset the Bluetooth module” from the Debug menu list. When finished resetting, reboot your Mac as usual. Android: Clear the Bluetooth cache (Android only). Sometimes apps will interfere with Bluetooth operation and clearing the cache can solve the problem. Go Settings > Backup and restart > Reset network settings. 7. Contact support - If you are still unable to connect with your GT after performing these procedures, please contact us here so that we can assist to diagnose the issue further, or provide a warranty replacement where applicable. Be sure to mention that you have completed these steps along with any details you may have noticed while doing so.

    GT: Tips

    How do I get started? Plug the USB receiver into the USB port. Switch the Swiftpoint GT "ON" with the button on the base. To charge the mouse, dock it on to the USB receiver. Before you use the mouse for the first time, perform a full battery charge. The battery LED will flash while charging and will stop flashing when the charge is complete. A full charge may take up to 90 minutes. How do I hold the Swiftpoint GT? Hold the mouse with your thumb in the thumb grip and your middle finger on the finger grip. rest your index finger on the grip surface of the left-click button. Be sure not to place your thumb too far forward. It should feel natural and comfortable to use, just like holding a pen. How do I use the Swiftpoint GT? Firstly ensure you are holding the mouse correctly. Next, practice clicking the left-click and right-click buttons on top of the mouse. The scroll wheel can be used like a traditional scroll wheel by scrolling with your index finger. GT works in two modes:Point and click mode where you use it as a traditional mouse and Touch gesture mode accessed by tilting the mouse over slightly to use the stylus underneath. It allows the user a natural swipe or flick action with finger, wrist and forearm movement. To gesture, tilt the mouse to engage the stylus, then drag the stylus on the mousing surface. To perform edge gestures (Win 8), hold the rear (right-click) button and engage the stylus. Drag right to left to bring up Charms. Drag left to right to bring up application switcher. Lift stylus to launch an application. Drag up or down to zoom depending on the application being used. How do I set the pointer speed? The pointer speed is set via your computer or laptop settings. Windows Go to Control Panel, and click Mouse (or press the windows key and type 'mouse') Click on the Pointer Options TAB. Drag the pointer speed slider to a position that suits your use. Mac OS Open the System Preferences application. Click on Keyboard & Mouse. Click on the Mouse TAB. Drag the Tracking Speed slider to a position that suits your use. Configuring the Swiftpoint GT.

    GT: Troubleshooting

    If your GT is able to connect with its USB receiver, but not over Bluetooth - try these Bluetooth Troubleshooting steps. If your GT is working via Bluetooth, but not with your USB receiver - try these USB Receiver Troubleshooting steps. If your GT is not working at all - try these General Troubleshooting steps. If your mouse buttons or scroll-wheel are working, but you are unable to move the cursor, or the cursor is not working correctly - try these Optical Sensor Troubleshooting steps. If one or both of your GTs main buttons are not responding - try these Button Troubleshooting steps. If you have just installed macOS 10.14 Mojave, and your GT has stopped working - follow these steps to get your GT working again.
  10. My 300 Series Swiftpoint Mouse is not working at all. If your mouse is not working at all, please try the following steps in sequence: 1. Confirm the 300 Series Swiftpoint Mouse has battery charge - to do this, turn the mouse over and click one of the mouse buttons. If there is battery charge, the red sensor light will start flickering. If there is no charge, please charge the mouse by docking it on the USB receiver (plugged into your computer's USB port). Your computer will need to be turned on to charge the mouse. If your mouse has battery charge or the mouse charging LED does not flash when your mouse is docked, please continue to Step 2. 2. Confirm whether there is an issue with the USB receiver - we have received a small percentage of customers reporting that their USB receivers have stopped working. We have diagnosed these receivers and found that static electricity discharges from the user have caused the receivers to become unresponsive. We have modified the electronic design of the receivers to address this issue, but customers who have purchased early versions of the Swiftpoint Mouse may find their receivers stop working. To determine whether your USB receiver has stopped working: Insert it into another USB port on your computer or another computer. If your Mouse starts working, there may be a problem with your original USB port. If the Mouse still does not work try the next step; Try to "re-pair" the Mouse with the USB receiver. To do this hold down both the left-click and right-click buttons, and while holding down the buttons turn the scroll wheel until both LED lights come on (this could take up to 15 seconds). Once the lights come on, release the buttons and hold the mouse close to the USB receiver. If the LED lights go off your mouse has successfully re-paired and it should work. If the two LED lights do not turn off, the USB receiver has stopped working. View a video on how to repair your mouse. If have successfully managed to re-pair the Mouse but you still have a problem, please contact us here so that we can assist to diagnose the issue further. My 300 Series Swiftpoint Mouse pointer is tracking intermittently. The SmartTouch Sensor is probably activated. The SmartTouch sensor ensures the mouse pointer stops moving when your finger is not detected on the finger grip. When you type, it is best to move the mouse to a position between your hands, but doing this will also move the pointer across your screen. When SmartTouch is on, you can move your mouse without any pointer movement by lifting your middle finger and then moving the mouse with your thumb. To de-activate it: Press and hold down both mouse buttons. After 2 seconds, the status LED will glow. Release the buttons and when the status LED turns off, roll the scroll wheel. The status LED will flash once indicating SmartTouch is now off. You can switch SmartTouch on again by repeating the steps above. My 300 Series Swiftpoint Mouse pointer is tracking on an angle. Please try to re-calibrate the "Up" direction by following these steps: 1. Hold the mouse at a comfortable angle. 2. Press and hold down both mouse buttons. 3. After 2 seconds the mouse pointer will position itself at the bottom of the screen and move upwards. 4. Release the buttons and move the mouse pointer in a straight line upward until the pointer moves in a small circle. The new up direction will now be set.
  11. How do I get started? Plug the USB receiver into the USB port. This action will activate the mouse. To charge the mouse, dock it on to the USB receiver. Before you use the mouse for the first time, perform a full battery charge. The battery LED will flash while charging and will glow steadily when the charge is complete. A full charge may take up to 90 minutes. How do I hold the 300 Series Swiftpoint mouse? Hold the mouse with your thumb in the thumb grip and your middle finger on the finger grip. rest your index finger on the grip surface of the left-click button. Be sure not to place your thumb too far forward. It should feel natural and comfortable to use, just like holding a pen. How do I use the mouse? Firstly ensure you are holding the mouse correctly. Next, practice clicking the left-click and right-click buttons on top of the mouse. The scroll wheel can be used like a traditional scroll wheel by scrolling with your index finger, or you can tilt the mouse to activate rapid scrolling, called SlideScrollTM. How does SlideScrollTM work? You can scroll rapidly by lifting the mouse and rolling the scroll wheel along the mousing surface. This is called SlideScroll and is useful when you want to scroll quickly through documents. To use the zoom function, hold down the left-click button while slidescrolling. To use the page up and down function, hold down the right-click button while slidescrolling. How do I set the pointer speed? The pointer speed is set via your computer or laptop settings. Windows Go to Control Panel, and click Mouse (or press the windows key and type 'mouse') Click on the Pointer Options TAB Drag the pointer speed slider to a position that suits your use. Mac OS Open the System Preferences application. Click on Keyboard & Mouse. Click on the Mouse TAB. Drag the Tracking Speed slider to a position that suits your use. What is SmartTouch and how does it work? The SmartTouch sensor ensures the mouse pointer stops moving when your finger is not detected on the finger grip. When you type, it is best to move the mouse to a position between your hands, but doing this will also move the pointer across your screen. When SmartTouch is on, you can move your mouse without any pointer movement by lifting your middle finger and then moving the mouse with your thumb. SmartTouch will be set to off by default. To activate it: Press and hold down both mouse buttons. After 2 seconds, the status LED will glow. Release the buttons and when the status LED turns off, roll the scroll wheel. The status LED will flash once indicating SmartTouch is now on. You can switch SmartTouch off again by repeating the steps above. Changing the "up direction" of your mouse. As you can use your 300 Series Swiftpoint mouse in many different environments, you may find you want to hold your mouse at different angles. To ensure your pointer continues to move in the direction you expect, you can change the angle that your mouse regards as 'up'. Follow these steps to change your 'up' direction: Hold the mouse at a comfortable angle. Press and hold down both mouse buttons. After 2 seconds the mouse pointer will position itself at the bottom of the screen and move upwards. Release the buttons and move the mouse pointer in a straight line upward until the pointer moves in a small circle. The new up direction will now be set.
  12. Hi @SilentMan You can find the first Overwatch profile created by @Rapsis below. (EDIT: @phntmAI has just put another up you could try too) For your other request, unfortunately its not currently possible to add a custom image, or animation to the Zs OLED display; only custom text. But we've received requests for this functionality before so it may be something we look into in the future.
  13. Sorry for not responding to this sooner @Midget_Army. This is a very unusual issue; can you confirm if it is only happening within Elite? If so does Elite allow the cursor you see drifting to be controlled via joystick inputs? As my only initial thought is that this could be an issue with having two DirectInput devices running at the same time.
  14. Pivot Inputs Pivot inputs work very much like the Tilt inputs described above, and have mostly the same available settings. So like Tilt inputs, a Pivot inputs can be added to almost any of the Z's other inputs. However unlike Tilt inputs, they cannot be activated independently by default. This is because having a pivot output active all of the time can easily cause problems due to the way most people will naturally pivot the mouse slightly during normal use. If you wished to disable this limitation please refer to the guide in this thread. Adding a Pivot Input To add a pivot input simply choose another input you wish to add it to, then click the +ADD button which appears when you hold your cursor over its name in the Output pane. This will open a dialog where you can select another input to create an input combination. Select Pivot from the top drop-down menu. You will then have the option to chose the direction of the pivot input, or to create an analog input. The settings for each of these are equivalent to these described in the Tilt Input section above. The only difference of course is that the degree value refers to an amount of pivot rather than a tilt. Reset Pivot (Yaw) One important thing to note about pivot inputs is the importance of the "Reset Pivot (Yaw)" output available under the "Set Profile/Reset Angle" category. Below is a simple example of a pivot output being used to turn/strafe that we will use to show its importance. Adding this output to your pivots parent input press is highly recommended. As it will ensure that no matter what position your Z is currently in, you will only have to pivot it the defined number of degrees to activate your output. For example, without the "Reset Pivot (Yaw)" output on "Bottom Thumb Press", your Zs pivot reading could be sitting at 20° when you press the "Bottom Thumb Button". Which would mean you needed to pivot ~20° to the left before you could access either your left or right outputs. With the reset of course your pivot reading is immediately set to the neutral position (0°) putting you in the correct position to easily activate your left or right pivots. The "Reset Pivot (Yaw)" on release is less important; but often useful. In the example above it ensures that both A and D are released automatically when you release the "Bottom Thumb Button". Without it they could remain held down until you either pivot back to the neutral position, or press the "Bottom Thumb Button" again.
  15. @Oleg Girko Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. Unfortunately I can't help with this directly, but I have brought your requests to the rest of the team to see how we can assist with this effort. I can't say for sure yet what this will entail; releasing the USB protocol info is a possibility. However I think it's unlikely that we will open source the firmware itself at this time.
  16. @Liam, You've definitely got the right idea. If you're assigning functions to your Z its best if they are not also occupying easy to reach keyboard keys around WASD. A good place to start for a setup like this would be the profile below, which has all of the Z's buttons mapped to numpad keys. https://community.swiftpoint.com/files/file/14-general-gaming-numpad-version/
  17. Indeed it can, you'll just need to use press and release outputs separated by a 1 second wait command, as shown below.

    This mapping file has two profiles which bind all of the Z's buttons to numpad keys. One with tilt, and the other without. It's similar to the default gaming profiles, but has wider compatibility compared to the joystick outputs used in the default profiles. This is often a good place to start with a gaming profile, as instead of having to go into the game, look at its keybinds then go back into the driver to assign the appropriate keys; you can do all the basic configuration within the game itself. Then use sub-profiles to add more advanced game specific configuration; deep clicks, button combinations, macros etc. A side benefit of using numpad keys on the Z is that you will often be freeing up keyboard keys close to WASD so they can be used for other functions. For example using Num 9 and 0 for lean in PUBG/R6:Siege frees up the easily accessible Q and E keys for other important functions. Allowing you to further optimize your keyboard mappings too.

  19. @Tuudi At this time that is true. But we do plan to offer the cable cube as a separate purchase in the near future.
  20. For pivot outputs we generally recommend adding a "Reset Pivot" to the button press that enables the pivot output. As this will result in a consistent amount of pivot after the button is pressed to start your output. No mater how your Z is currently positioned; or if the Y value has drifted over time. For example:
  21. Hi @Stele I'm glad to hear you've been having a positive experience with your Z so far. Regarding the Z's scroll-wheel as @PureLIN mentions it doesn't actually have separate left and right scroll inputs. Just regular scroll, middle click, plus deep click. The reason that pushing the scroll-wheel to the right has a tactile click while pushing to the left does not is that the middle mouse buttons switch is underneath the right side of the scroll-wheels axle. This of course means that pushing the scroll-wheel to the left will lift the axle off the switch rather than pressing down on it.
  22. While you can't remove the default left click functionality from the left mouse button, you can add extra outputs to it by nesting another left button input inside it as shown below. This looks a bit odd but works just the same as if you added the nested press outputs below the default "Left Click Down". It's not important in this example, but I should note that with a setup like this the "Left Click Up" on "Left Button Release" will actually trigger before the "Stop All Loops" output above it.
  23. If you are setting up lean left and right on tilt I would normally recommend an angle around 1.7° with a high noise value, say 1.2°+. As this means you only lean with very deliberate tilts of the Z, and you will remain leaning while you aim until you put the Z almost completely flat. Though if you are combining tilt with pitch are you perhaps setting up tilt for something else?
  24. You're right that the Z automatically calibrates itself during use, and in some cases this can make matters worse rather than better. Check out this post for a workaround which will disable this feature. https://community.swiftpoint.com/topic/55-issue-with-the-gyroscope/?do=findComment&comment=150 It looks like the point you bring up regarding pitch affecting roll, is actually caused by the Z's tilt input filtering. Which is intended to prevent the accidental activation of minor tilt inputs while the Z is lifted off the mouse mat for repositioning. If do you want a tilt output to trigger while the Zs sensor off the mouse mat, it will just need to be set to 3° or higher, as anything below that will be filtered out.
  25. Sorry for not getting back to you sooner @Sweepnclear, but I've just had a look at this issue you mention and have been able to replicate it. It seems that switching profile can cause the Z's Joystick slider output to get stuck in non-neutral position, which is causing this behaviour. This appears to be a firmware issue and I have reported it to our devs to correct. But for now I've found a workarounds for this. The workaround is to create a mapping that resets the slider to its neutral position. To do this first assign the slider to a pivot output with a 50% max slider range as shown in the images below. Then add a "Reset Pivot (Yaw)" to the button press used to activate the pivot. Once this mapping is created you would just need to push this button (or button combination) once before you adjust your mappings in ARMA.
