Azeron is officially ordered up, now I just have to wait for the little badarse to arrive.

In the meantime, my Logitech G13 has passed and is now in gamepad heaven with all his friends and family. I need something to use while waiting on the Azeron, so I took apart a Razer Orbweaver I picked up last year and removed the entire thumb area (with 4-way switch and buttons.) And then I built a little jig to hold it at an angle with the Xbox controller and this thing actually is 10x better than my previous G13s, the better key switches and xbox's joystick are a definite improvement:

Oh wow, that is inspired! It also looks like a building floor plan I'd have to raid in PubG :D You'll definitely appreciate the minimal finger travel distance of the Azeron switches. I didn't even think about it until I had it.

Some folks just dont know how to smile .... I think it's good to see folk getting creative with the building blocks of life  :) :)

Hey if you went as far as removing the Orbweaver dpad you could have gone one more step and unsoldered and removed the left stick from the controller, and made a nice little enclosure for it to sit next to the Orbweaver.

A few of us did a mod years ago and took the stick out of the authentication 360 controller connected to the xim, and put it in the Belkin N52te. You couldn't pick up the controller to use though as it had no left stick. What you've done could just have the stick next to the Orbweaver if you took it out of the controller ... it's easy, I had never soldered before when I did it.

Make sure you're using the correct mode. There's a small button on the side near the Azeron logo.

Alright it's been a long time! My azeron rocks still, I absolutely love it. One thing that other people might want to hear is that whenever I plug it into the xim I have to press the mode button and switch to and from the two modes. If I don't do this, non of the buttons work properly. Also I still haven't really messed with the dead zone on the analog stick, maybe I could make it better but I don't really know how it can get better than I have it now.

Which mode is which? I thought that was profile switching lol

I have to do the same thing, two clicks of the side button and I'm golden.  I agree with the deadzone, I don't really know what I'm looking for and could probably have a better setup but does the job just fine

Imants can you change that? In config software make a XIM setting?
Crusade atm: XIM Mouse that is stable 1000hz at 12000 or higher no delays by smoothing. XIM APEX is ridiculous without a XIM Mouse.
