cm storm spawn problems...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I've been using Xornet for quite some time and loved it and figured it was time to upgrade due to it more or less breaking and having a terrible scroll wheel. naturally got the Spawn given the shapes are the same and I've been told it has superior build quality and hardware. now I run it at 1800dpi/125hz and it malfunctions constantly. I swipe quick back and forth and the mouse pointer nosedives into the bottom right of my screen every time. I've tried different firmwares and settings and nothing helps. every dpi is the same and it just craps out on my when I swipe. is this normal or could I perhaps have a broken Spawn?

Right now I'm using 800 - 1600 dpi @ 1000hz on firmware v61 w/ tape fix and haven't had any pointer issues whether gaming or general desktop. Did you download firmware v6x? I only ask because you have to do some digging for it. If you did then it's possible that you have a defective mouse or it's not playing well with your pad.

Thanks, will try 800 dpi @ 1000hz using the firmware 61 and tape fix. Was under the impression that 30a was the way to go, but we'll see soon enough. Also using CM Storm mousepad which is black, so hopefully that shouldn't be an issue.

ugh, tried it now in CS:GO and the mouse is trash with every setting and firmware possible. Nothing changes. It will spaz out during any proper swipe on their own mousepads and it's simply not playable at low sens... Or the mouse is broken. -.-

I'm leaning toward faulty mouse, but you can always return it and check out the Roccat Savu, G400, Deathadder or the Zowie mice.

Appreciate the help. Will send it back next week and see if I'm going to bother trying another or perhaps go back to Xornet... DeathAdder's grip is simply terrible for me and the same goes for the other 3. need either palm grip + ring finger support or some form of similar rubber sides like that of Spawn..

G400 is pretty much this.

EDIT: It's ring finger support doesn't look all that great, at least not compared to Meduza. perhaps it's harder to see it in a video or picture, but it sure doesn't look good enough in that aspect - http://itc.ua/articles/obzor-epic-gear-meduza/

CM Spawn and Epic Gear Meduza are basically same mice with another hardware, plastics-types and overall sizes.
