Hi. I just got a new Steelseries Rival 600 mouse. How i can adjust my dpi other than with that button on top of the mouse, It only has 2 options (both really slow). Im now trying to adjust it with my Mac Air but can't find any solution for this. Also i need help with the third side button. I can't bind that in Fortnite. What should i do? The Xim Apex doesn't recognize that button when i try to bind it.

Thank you in advance!

Sorry I'm not familiar with the mouse. Your mouse may allow you to adjust DPI in your mouse app assuming the mouse allows for these changes to be used when away from a PC. About the side buttons, if the mouse software allows you may be able to assign this as an unused keyboard key like  o p k l. This would help XIM see the mouse button. The mouse would need to have onboard memory and offer this capability.

Hopefully other Rival 600 users can comment on if this is possible.

You need the Steeleries 3 Software.Not sure there is one for Mac.
With the SS3 You can adjust DPI values from 100-12000 DPI and rebind the third side button or other one except the DPI button.Change DPI values on the fly is only possible with the DPI button on top of the mouse and you can only save two DPI values.

Thank you! Got that Software now. I binded the third side button to X. Any other tips for that mouse, especially for Fortnite would be greatly appreciated! :)

Put it on your mouse pad and hold the DPI button till the lights flash. That will calibrate the mouse to the surface.
In SS3 use a lift off distance between 3-5.I dont play Fortnite so maybe other users can give you tips for it.

Many thanks. The lift distance is on high. So should it be in between low / high?
