Kinzu V1 Firmware Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I have a Kinzu V1 in my mouse collection that I bought recently. I read in the forums that if you update the firmware from the SteelSeries site you will get lots of acceleration and stronger prediction with the mouse. However I'm wondering since I bought the mouse recently and not when it first came out, is it possible that the mouse already has the newer firmware that's available in the website or does it have the old one which has less prediction and positive acceleration.

Show us some cirlces in paint. smile.gif I bought the Kinzu relatively late and no firmware was installed.

1.07 driver: cdn.steelseries.com/mice/Kinzu_v1.0.7.exe
To only change settings. There comes no firmware with it.

at least it is not just a rumor with the firmware:




when you can still write in paint, then it's the best you can get out of a kinzu1, so don't try to install the newer drivers.

I disagree with Thunda slightly.

I have a Kinzu v1 that was on the "newest" driver and suffered from terrible angle snapping but decided to try and revert it. Downloaded and installed the old driver 1.0.7 as linked above, changed some settings and hit apply and boom, angle snapping greatly reduced and the mouse is pretty much back to how it was originally. So essentially applying settings from an older driver removed a load of angle snapping. It's still there but no where near as severe and it's 100% not placebo.

I can't say if it's the same as the non driver picture above without trying as I'm not actually using it anymore but it's definitely possible to alter it from the terrible settings in the newest driver release.
