Can't use extra buttons on SwiftpointZ
« on: 07:41 AM - 02/05/18 »
I can only use left and right mouse, middle mouse, scroll and side buttons. The others do not register at all.

I have firmware 20171004/manager 20160405 installed.

Have you remapped these as unused keyboard keys in the mouse software? For example, keys like: [ ] ; ' , . /

I had the same problems when I got mine but they all work now. The mistake I made in the Swiftpoint software was that I thought that I had saved the changes to the mouses onboard memory when I clicked the "save changes button" on the bottom right of the screen.
 
What you have to do is click the icon on the top left of the screen (with the  lines) ... and on the drop down menu you can save the profile to the mouse onboard memory.

I found this helpful  https://community.swiftpoint.com/topic/18-swiftpoint-driver-overview/

I also had a wierd problem after I set my buttons  and started playing: I had a spot of dust on my mouse mat so I lifted the mouse to flick away the dust. When I resumed playing some of my bindings on the mouse had changed from keyboard bindings to joystick bindings and were doing actions that I had set for my G13.
This had me scratching my head for a while but I think that all I did to fix this was to change the game "controller type" in the Swiftpoint software from "analogue" to "none"

It's a great mouse but it's a little more complicated than most.

You, my friend, are a life saver. I had no idea I was not saving the settings to the mouse, and I've had the mouse from day one  ;D

We are in business now, thanks for the replies, guys.

Thanks, Au1d Yin. I'll add these notes to the hardware list.
