Razer Synapse 2.0 software/mouse unusable if you dont have an internet connection or their servers are down... - Page 13  

post #121 of 190
im with channelx99. for me i do not want to register just to get the features of the mouse that i already paid for. installing their bloatware for drivers is fine but i do not see any reason why i need to register. how big is the profile anyway? why not store it in the computer?

for some people registration may not be a big deal but to me it is such a big thing. i got my naga sitting at my desk, havent registered yet and i also havent tried configuring it. if this asks me to register or connect to the internet at any point, it goes back to the store lol.

This auto profile switching is wonky. I retried and it didn't cause minimizing over 6 tests, different games, etc.
Then later on it started again.
The kicker is I launched dota2, so it full screened, then minimized to apply my dota2 profile.
But then the laughs start because I set explorer.exe as my default profile, so the minimizing to desktop then triggered the default profile to reenable.
So when I clicked dota2 to full screen, bam, it minimized again to apply the profile and you can guess what happened.
it seems to take 2-5 secs for the explorer.exe to be picked up, and it seems I have to actually be clicking or sitting idle at the desktop.
I can't just alt-tab to firefox or a steam window, that doesn't count as explorer and wont trigger the switch.

So when this minimizing to desktop madness starts, I have 2-3 secs to catch it and click dota2 before it reapplies the explorer.exe profile and causes the minimizing loop.

Unfortunately this wouldn't be an easy task to accomplish in a way that we would reach any significant numbers. The majority of their customers probably have no idea of what the deal with synapse 2.0 is and probably some don't even care.

Spyware or not, I'd just like the damn thing to work. My ouroboros sleeps, I lose my DPI settings. When the PC reboots, the mouse appears to be working at 8200 DPI until the Synapse 2.0 software starts back up (Several year old WIn 7 install that is BLOATED, so that takes some time).

Is there a software alternative? Right now, my needs are simple - about 2500 dpi and a couple of mouse click macros.

The ouroboros is okay (looks better than it works right now), but I'll go back to a Corsair M90 or a microsoft wired laser mouse if I have to go into Synapse everytime I let my mouse sleep. I haven't tried going offline with it - sounds like a lot of fun...

So where's the driver update they mentioned months ago that would enable an offline mode? It didn't update for me yet.

Update came out about 3 days ago.

My store has now got the DA 2013 in stock. Should I go ahead and buy it? I've been waiting a few weeks to get this mouse now, but some of the issues have put me off and I am not as keen as I was. Is it confirmed that you can install synapse, adjust your settings and the last profile is saved in the mouse? or do you always have to have Synapse installed?

You always have to have Synapse installed. If I were you i'd stay away from Razer products. Several other companies make great mice. I just got one from Roccat.

I'm curious though; what improvements does the DA 2013 model have?
