G400 angle snapping removed. - Page 58

where can i find the PID? i have two numbers on the packaging, one above a large barcode next to "G400", starting with 910- and another one below a small barcode, "S/N 212...", which one is it?

also, i have an issue with the driver: i open lgs830.exe, then it seems to load a bit, and then the process disappears again, so i basically can't install the software. i'm using windows xp, has anyone else had this problem and knows how to fix this?
€: ok i fixed this, here are the steps to install it in case someone runs into the same issue:
1. download lgs830.exe
2. download and install peazip
3. rightclick lgs830.exe and click "open with peazip"
4. doubleclick lgs830.exe, then click "no" (to browse the file rather than to open it)
5. extract the file [0]
6. rename [0] to [0].zip
7. extract [0].zip (rightlick [0].zip and click "extract here(in new folder)" )
8. navigate into [0]\$_OUTDIR\1-LGS-x86
9. run setup.exe and wait until the process is done(there's no visual feedback except that windows detects a new driver)
10. done, now you should have lgs installed in C:\Program Files\Logitech Gaming Software\
11. run C:\Program Files\Logitech Gaming Software\LCore.exe
12. have fun smile.gif
(the software is a little bit of a ram eater though, takes 30mb minimized compared to 4mb with goold ol' mouseware)

and: does anyone know if the mx510 had acceleration? the g400 seems to be a little slower to me than the mx510?

Logitech wrote this in their forum:

"We are in transition from PID to S/N for new products/production units."
"Any G400 that has a full serial number and not a PID has angle snapping disabled."

So you have no PID, then you have no angle snapping.

As you should undoubtedly know, more sales don't always equal better product, but rather the opposite wink.gif

Unfortunatley i dont have a mx300 to see whether its possible to swap the mx5xx/g400 into it, if this is the case, logitech could make empty mx300/g300+ shells. I can imagine those selling good, since there are already some mx5xx/g400 owners. I atleast would buy one, or two.
the g400 top part feels almost like sandpaper, i hope savus sides go into this direction..? I atleast dont feel any sweat.

I doubt Logitech intends to go with the shell business again after the G9 and G9x, but I can see your point :
- Buying shell
- Buying sensor
- Buying switches
- Building the mouse

Tadaa! Custom mice for everyone!

(Won't happen xD)

Savu's sides are rougher than anything on the G400, but they get softer (not too much, but quite some) the more they're used.

Mx510 should not have acceleration.
Your feeling that one seems to be slower can come down to two things :
- One of them has a wrongly rated CPI step.
- Mousefeet make a difference and one drags more than the other.

you mean one of the mice doesn't actually work at 800 CPI, although it's set at 800? how can i check this, and does that mean one of them is kinda defective?

No, DPI ratings can be within ~10% from the claimed value via registry. Illumination or "LED quality" could also have an effect on the actual range.

I try to stress this, but no two mice will be exactly as hardware varies.

Edit:
Mx510 on its own a pretty unique mouse. I believe it required the use of software to tick the 800 DPI registry or else it defaulted at 400. Must have been an early Cypress micro controller limitation.

But that's exactly what it is to these companies... A numbers game of profit and sales. Adding $0.50-1.00 worth of parts turns a 50 dollar mouse into a $55-60 product.

I have a 510, does it have prediction/acceleration?

I think the 510 has prediction.
