PC Driver Release V 1.2.52

Recommended Posts

Here's the summary of what's new in the PC Driver Release August 10, 2018

Keyboard Input recorder

Instead of manually selecting every keyboard output using several drop-down list you can now record outputs directly from your keyboard using the new record button on the output list screen.

While recording press and release outputs will be added to the output list as you type for all standard keyboard keys and media controls like volume, play/pause etc.

Tap outputs will be created automatically if a press output is immediately followed by its own release. So if you want just a press or just a release either start the recording with a key already held down (to only record the release), or stop the recording before you release a key ) to only record the press).

You will also be given the option of adding the release output to the release input when you are just mapping a single key with the recorder.

Option to disable or enable "Tilt Auto-Zeroing"

"Tilt Auto-Zeroing" is a firmware feature of the Z which works to prevent the gyroscope's tilt readings from drifting over time. In general it does its job well; but in some use cases it can cause more problems than it solves.

So if you find that you are frequently needing to re-calibrate your tilt angles for your tilt functions to work correctly, try disabling this feature from the profile settings screen.

Just note that since disabling "Tilt Auto-Zeroing" will mean that your Z is not trying to auto-correct for the natural drift in the gyroscope, your tilt values will drift over time. But this drift will be slow, so doing a manual re-zero (with the default right trigger pull function on the global profile, or your own custom mapping) should mean you don't have any problems with tilt for even an extended gaming/work session.

Auto-Release Inputs Toggle

By default there is a fail-safe enabled in the Zs firmware which prevents keys from being left held down if the Z is not currently processing any user input. So a press command will automatically release if the Z is not tilted, no buttons are physically held down, and no macros are running.

This means that if you accidentally forget to add a release for one of your press outputs, the key wont be stuck down permanently, which is generally a good thing. However it is a problem if you actually want a key to be left held down after you release a button.

For example, the mapping below which starts holding down 'W' when you first press the Left Fingertip button, then releases it when you press it again will not work correctly with the Auto-Release fail-safe enabled.

So if you want to make use of these kinds of functions in any of your profiles. Just disable the new "Auto-Release Inputs" setting from the profile settings screen. 

If you do just make sure that all of your press outputs have releases, or they will remain stuck down until you change profiles, or unplug the mouse.

New Ouptuts

Added Caps Lock and Application/Menu key under the "Modifiers and Actions" category. These will also work with the new keyboard recorder.

UI Changes/ Bug Fixes

  • Added Spanish translation.
  • "Stop Further Outputs" flags are now correctly maintained on the global profile when it is exported and imported.
  • The "Output ID#" setting on "Repeat From" functions now updates correctly when outputs are re-arranged, and also displays the correct number of options on the profile settings screen.
  • The correct side of the slider is now highlighted when modifying analog toggle inputs.
  • Removed '{0}' text from the DPI output label.
  • Resolved issue where '+ADD' button would sometimes be displayed on analog inputs which are set to an analog output (e.g. deep click analog range). Which allowed the creation of invalid mappings.

Firmware Changes

Updates to scroll-wheel ‘de-bounce logic’ which will resolve the issue of ‘reverse scrolling’ that a few users are experiencing.
