  1. Yes it's related to Windows 10 1809, thats why the title says Issues with Windows 10 Fall update 1809. It causes a hell of a lot of bugs? mine's fine on a fresh install from the latest W10 image from MS. Also I must have missed the part where I was advocating searches for Windows updates, can you point me to that part (as you said it was for 'my' information)?
  2. Hi All Just a little heads up for anyone experiencing issues after updating to W10 1809 (Fall 2018 update). You *may find your driver not starting properly and getting a message that 'something went wrong'. I *think this is an incompatibility with 1809 and to rectify the issue I reinstalled with the latest driver download which will take you back to version After installing you'll get a message that the driver is outdated and to upgrade. I did not upgrade further at this point an my mouse driver works fine. I suspect it will have to stay this way until the second coming of Christ. Hope it helps someone out.
  3. Had a Razr mouse, would never have another, the software/firmware is garbage. Nearly bought a Razr keyboard until I saw the feedback on the 2 that a particular site had sold, BOTH returned. I love the Z Mouse and my standby is my Rocatt Tyon. I think you'll find that all the negativity on this forum is the total lack of support, they don't even respond to forum posts. This is a company in a muddle because if it wasn't the owner would have this issue addressed. My Tyon remains on call, and ultimately one day I think that call will come.
  4. I've sold 3 other Z''s to people I game with, but now we have this ignorance/arrogance mix regarding this update and no response to the backlash from it I don't think I'll bother in future if this is the support level.
  5. Sad that they can't even be bothered to respond to this post, makes me even more nervous.
  6. Sadly I feel the same. I bought my Z believing the hype that this really might be a true groundbreaking piece of hardware. It IS groundbreaking, but I literally hope it doesn't 'break' because if the software updates are anything to go by I doubt it will ever get fixed. Seems like another great idea that just didn't have the correct people behind it, or the crowdfund was so successful it took away the drive, sound familiar? We waited since December the 8th for Chinese language implementation?! I'm just glad I never got rid of my Roccat Tyon..
  7. So I have just received an email telling me the Z is $149 this week instead of the usual $229. Seems like a he'll of a discount, and says a lot about the profit margin. Also makes me a little nervous that the price should be murdered by this much, smacks of desperation. Not impressed.
  8. Thanks Bryce. I kind of gave up on it for a time but I'll have another look and get back to you.
  9. I've just tried it lol, I think it would take me about four years to get used to that
  10. Ahh OK. The thing with the ultrawide is you get a nice full view including your peripheral vision without the frames each side. I'd never go back to 3 monitors or 4:3 aspect now, ultrawide is king IMO.
  11. Thanks guys. @cuongtdc it might look high but it's perfect head height. @Absolarix yes I'd never go back to a normal monitor, the immersion with an ultra wide is unreal. Also I wouldn't say I'm an audiophile but I do like a decent sound. That's an old Creative Cambridge DTS3500 it's about 20 years old now but sounds fantastic. You carried it all out to somewhere that had power? Wow, and I get called obsessional ! Why the two keyboards and what keyboards are they please?
  12. Version 1.0.0


    My first fully finished config for Escape From Tarkov. This config brings many essential gun play commands right to your mouse, including: Check weapon, check breach, switch between upper/lower sights, inventory, toggle tactical attachments, magazine check and more. The left fingertip button setup: Single tap status announcement, double tap to bring up the gesture command and 50% push to check weapon. Lower shoulder button + W ans S gives fire from cover and blind fire while the top button makes you prone. Of course not forgetting the 'tilt to lean' exclusive to all us Z users
  13. Nice one To be honest, the four available maps right now are more than enough to keep you going until the next map update which isn't far off now. Be warned this game is a serious baptism of fire and lots to learn!
  14. Lets have a look at your rig and your mouse in situ. Here's mine:
  15. Hi to All Escape from Tarkov is the game I've been waiting many years for. Ultra hardcore realistic gun play and dying simulator. I have managed to take all the important key binds that you need in a hurry i.e check mag, check breach, check weapon, inventory, quick prone, shot steady, switch between sights etc and put them all on my Z Mouse. Not to mention of course the awesome tilt to lean that's not only so simple to use it means you can tilt and move too, not possible with a WASD/QE configuration. Left fingertip key is a single tap to report status, double tap to bring up the gestures command and a 50% press goes straight to check weapon. In my opinion the Z Mouse was worth my purchase for this game alone, it adds so much simplicity to an already frantic game. Here's my config for anyone who's interested.
  16. Hi All I'm a big GTA V fan and is one of the games I was principally using my Z Mouse for. 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. My issue is, I want to be able to use the Z normally to control my character but when I get into a plane I want to be able to lift the Z from the desk and fly in analogue tilt (without using the analogue base). Hello I am really enjoying setting up my Z mouse and learning new ways to control things in game, The Z mouse is awesome. I just have a question please to clear something up. In the settings page for any given profile there is a drop down called Game Controller Type: This on confuses me. I’m trying to set up a profile for GTA V which uses a good mix of regular key binds but also I would love to be able to control planes directly with the mouse, as seen in the Z mouse promo videos. I would like to be a able to take off in a plane then just lift the mouse from the pad and go straight into analogue to control the pitch/yaw of the plane. I have assigned 8 degree analogue to both axis for that game but it does nothing. I don’t know if I can do this without using the attachable analogue control base (I hope I don’t need it). Does this all have something to do with the Game Controller Type drop down? Do I only need to drop that down for just joystick operation only? Bit confused here. Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks. Hi The "Controller Type" is intended to give you the option of disabling the Zs controller interface entirely. This functionality is not complete though, so for now it simply disables any joystick outputs for that profile. So in your case you would want to leave this set to "Joystick". The problem you are running into here is that GTA only supports XInput controllers, rather than DirectInput which the Z currently uses for its joystick outputs. We are planning to add native XInput support to the Z in a future update, but for now you can still use joystick functions in XInput only games like GTA V by using a tool to map the Zs "DirectInput" outputs to "XInput" inputs; such as TocaEdit Xbox 360 Controller Emulator. For example to allow steering in GTA V using the tilt function in the "Gaming Analog" profile you would need to do the following. 1. Download the 64bit version of TocaEdit. Ensuring you have all the programs installed mentioned in TocaEdits system requirements 2. Put "x360ce_x64.exe" into your GTA V directory then run it. 3. Create the "xinput1_3.dll" when prompted to do so. 4. Cancel the search for settings, as non currently exist for the Z. 5. Dismiss the error message about a misconfigured device. 6. Hit the save button to the bottom right, then close and reopen TocaEdit. 7. Set "Stick Axis X" to "Axis 1" as shown below then save again. 8. You should notice that tilting your Z will move the green + on 360 controller image. 9. Close TocaEdit before launching GTA V. You will never need to run it again unless you want to change its configuration. For flying you would just need to also add "Axis 2" or "IAxis2" to "Stick Axis Y", depending on if you would like the control to be inverted Also if you only plan to use this for flying with the mouse off the mouse pad, I would recommend adding a dead-zone to your Z's analog output as shown below. This will prevent any slight tilt movements you make while your Z is on the mouse mat from affecting steering or character movement. (You can access these options by clicking "Analog Left/Right -8° to 8°") Just adjust the "Min" value to set where the analog output will begin. The 2° I used in the image above is just for an example, so you may want to adjust this. I hope this helps, let me know if there is anything else I could explain further, or you have any further queries. Kind regards, Bryce Hello Bryce Many thanks for taking the time to provide me with an excellent tutorial. I would gave nevery known about TocaEdit. I see thw axis numbers moving in the TocaEdit GUI but unfortunately it still doesn't work but I probably need to mess with some GTA settings. This is what I call support! Thanks again Hi I'm glad I could help The outputs from TocaEdit should be recognized automatically in GTA, since it supports Xbox controllers by default. So if it isn't working you may just need to be sure you have "x360ce_x64.exe" in the right folder. As it will need to be in the same directory as 'GTA5.exe' for the settings to be detected by GTA. Please let me know if you run into any further problems. Kind regards, Bryce I'm extremely grateful to Bryce for his help but still no joy. Perhaps a later update may bring me some success? I have included my config if anyone wants to have a look or try it. AOD_GTAV.spcf
  17. Yes I'll second a pinky rest, the moulded on one is slightly roo far forward. It's good for tilt pressure but still need that little finger out of the way.
