Razer Synapse 2.0 offline saved settings and login, for offline PC's

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
So i bought an Razer Taipan which comes with the new Cloud based storage Synapse 2.0 configurator.
You cannot use the mouse configurator offline....or can you?
Just follow these simple steps to use the configurator on a offline pc.
Synapse2.0 must be installed to the offline pc

step1: Copy the Synapse folder located in C:/Programdata/Razer (Hidden folder so make sure you made hidden folders visible) to an USB stick or the like.(this contains the Configurator, Profiles etc.)

step2: Copy the Razer folder located in C:/users/username/AppData/Local (also Hidden) to your USB stick or the like. (this contains the login information)

step3:Now place/overwrite these folders in the same place on the pc that is offline, and you should be able to login with the account and password you used to register.

step4: run the 3 installers: Razer_Common_Config_v2.04.08.exe, Razer_Common_Driver_v1.11.00.exe and Razer_Taipan_Config_v1.06.00.exe
in the C:/Programdata/Razer/Synapse/ProductUpdates/Downloads folder you just copied to the OFFLINE pc

(replace the last with .exe of the device you own, as i own a taipan its the taipan configurator, so for another device its another file, for example Razer_Whatever_Config_v1.06.00.exe)

step5: Login and have fun tweaking biggrin.gif

(i cannot verify YET that transferring settings work as my laptop says Please Connect Synapse 2.0 enabled device mad.gif)
But its a start... So if anyone can verify that it works OR knows how to fix the " Please Connect Synapse 2.0 enabled device" part, please post it in this thread.


EDIT: i can verify that the settings will work, and fixed the " Please Connect Synapse 2.0 enabled device" error,
following the instructions in step4


the file described in step2 enable you to login on a offline PC thumb.gif

This was tested on Windows 7 pc/laptop, i dont know if it works on xp or windows 8 so please post your findings.

Hopefully Razer change their synapse crap. Every forum that discusses it have met with complaints and trashing of it. Casual users even hate it.

Synapse is a terrible idea. They think it is useful for the lan or tournament gamers who need to access their mouse settings from different computers quickly without installing a driver. If you ask me it looks like they are just making an excuse to force you to sign up for their spam mail newsletter. They are probably also trying to look cool and modern by moving to the "cloud."

No thanks, I don't need anymore startup programs accessing the internet. I just uninstalled it and am using the previous newest standalone driver which still allows me to save my config locally to a .conf file.

i too don't like the whole cloud idea, but i found out when i had already ordered the taipan and when it arrived i wanted to send it back, but i liked it, so i was determined to find out (if possible) how to transfer settings between multiple PC's, when it worked, thought id share it thumb.gif

Good job figuring this out. thumb.gif

Will be interesting to see those with Naga 2012 using macros please confirm if it works for you as well. A shame there isn't an 'option' during installation for cloud storage. Razer has some good mice in it's line up.

Glad to hear you like your Taipan. Read specs and it seems like a solid FPS gaming mouse. Congrats. smile.gif

I played around with this a little.
What it does it let you take a legit online install with your login, and copy to an offline device.
You still need to install the Synapse application to assign the macros.
I didnt try multiple reboots and pieces with the original naga drivers, because it didnt look like that was going anywhere.
When I was manually installing the Common Driver, it did glitch up and close rzsynapse, and the macros I had were still functioning.
So it seems like a loophole to close the app and have the settings hold. but theres no way to interact and adjust the settings and not sure how it would behave after a reboot.

I've got a Taipan, and while I really like how it feels.... Synapse's inability ot hold a profile, or return to default when not using a profile associated with an app is inexcusable. Especially when Razer hadn't allowed for an alternative. "Not ready for primetime" sums it up.

That's one more thing in the giant pile of horrible things that is Synapse 2.0, even if you are using it 100% legit (read: connected to their servers and using your profiles, etc.) there is no option for a "persistent profile". ie) a profile that works when no running app with a profile/settings is running. So if you're playing a game where all of your buttons are mapped and you exit the game, your buttons all stay mapped until you open synapse and manually select whatever profile you call default.

7 year old logitech software had this option..

I think they maked Synapse more for them self.
They don't have to make constantly design new drivers only a mouse profile and they stopped using on board memory they save money aswell.
Because in my opinion should the Razer Taipan have on board memory for that high price thatt tthe mouse cost.
