I'll check with the people in charge of shipping, I would expect the first shipments to hit any day for North America.

As for the question you asked me on twitter the other day, as far as I can tell the software you mentioned is really just a very simple registry value hack - it would only impact whatever acceleration value Windows has. It won't affect anything that is based on raw sensor output or behavior. It should have no effect.

Dear kimrom,

Will the Kana mouse have boot issue with some motherboards like the Xai?

I currently have a Xai and it boots fine on my desktop, but not on my laptop, Asus G74SX. I tried the Xai on a G73SW laptop as well and it also had boot issue during the bios stage.

I had the same issue, with the Xai, and several other gaming mice. The fault is not so much with the mouse, but with the BIOS on the motherboard. The easy solution is to buy an add-on USB card (~$15 on Newegg), and plug your mouse into that. The difference is that the USB card's peripherals aren't enumerated until after POST, so the BIOS doesn't have a chance to get hung up on them. I can't take any credit for originally coming up with this tip, but it has helped everyone, who's followed it, that I've passed it on to. In the case of your laptop, you may actually want to just put a mini USB hub in between the mouse and laptop (something I normally wouldn't advise), or else just plug the Xai in after boot, to get past the BIOS boot issue. It should work fine then. I know, it's kind of a pain, but not much else you can do with a laptop, as a workaround, unless the manufacturer offers a newer BIOS where the issue is fixed.

Sadly it may not happen at all. Sensei is available now, and Xai's firmware isn't updated long time already.

In short: no.

This is completely irrelevant to the topic but:

If the surface of the SP was super durable (like 1 year+ of it having the same feeling of it being fresh out of the box) they would have the best hard plastic mouse pad of all time.

I needed to get that out of my system.
post #358 of 690
Haha, give up already, the only durable mousepad was the first version s&s with a sk logo on it, the latter ones, lets just say the newer plastic pads from steel dont last as long, not even close. I've think that i'd even mail kim once but didnt got a reply regarding their plastic pads, doesnt matter to them anyway since most players use cloth nowadays.

You know what, I think it was the most durable surface we ever did (in plastic). We specifically made it on request from some of the players we sponsor, who were applying so much pressure to their mice that they were burning thru mouse pads.

During development, to test durability, we actually made a really really big version, which we put under the office chair of a "somewhat heavy" guy at our old Copenhagen office. After a month it was fine.

... And we still found gamers who would apply so much force to their mice, that they would kill them.

Honestly, the surface wouldnt even last 2 months under heavy use, sorry about suggesting something that is rediculous, but just bring back the s&s sk version, thats was the best, so called new and improved surface is way behind the old version.
