SteelSeries Kana v2 Review by Takasta - UPDATED White Version - Page 85

post #841 of 846
is LOD lowered with 1.27 ?
post #842 of 846
Not sure if this is a bug with the new firmware or not but I installed the latest drivers which automatically updated the firmware frown.gif

Now the mouse is on 1600/800 every time I reboot so when I go into linux it feels weird as I was using 800/400 frown.gif

I have the profile setup to 800/400 in windows using the steelseries engine software but unfortunately it seems I have to always have this running for the profiles now, not sure if I was lucky before with the default profiles being 800/400 or if the profiles are meant to be saved on the mouse ?

I thought profiles were applied & saved to the mouse ?

edit: I think I have sorted it out now
I downloaded SSEFix_1.25.4.1.exe to downgrade the FW which seemed to sort it out but it seems it saves cpi settings but not LED config.
So on 1st profile/setting it's always full LED + 2nd profile/setting is LED off
(the only thing I did differently on fw update was re-plug mouse before starting the update as it suggested this on the tool)

I thought I'd also try upgrading to SSEFix_1.27.0.0.exe just to see if it went back to not saving but it all seems ok again now.
Not sure if something messed up on upgrading with the drivers or something but cpi seems to save ok now smile.gif (maybe the drivers come with some other version?)

Hello fellow kana lovers.
Could you please tell me, which setup would be the best to avoid any smoothing or latency issues with brand new kana v2 + tape trick.
1. Do nothing, use default settings
2. Update mouse firmware, use default settings
3. Install SSE v2, update firmware, setup profiles as I want to, uninstall SSE.
Or if there is no difference?

Also, is there a way to check current version of firmware without ruining everything?

Thank you

I'm using her without installing anything. Before you go on an exciting OCD trip of "fine tuning", accompanied by obscurity and confirmation bias, try using the mouse with default firmware. Chances are - you would be satisfied with it as it is on stock firmware. However if something about tracking would bother you after like ~1 month, then i guess your best bet is to start tuning. Also tape trick decreases lod but wrecks malfunction speed on vertical axis. You'd be fine if you're playing a game without straight vertical flicks or if your flicks are not that fast.

It is my third Kana, so I'm used to this mice. Previously I've did that firmware upgrade and did not noticed any unwanted behaviour, so I wanted to check here if it is risky or not.

I have my Kana v2 updated to the latest firmware through the tool. Only thing I noticed was that the LoD got lower.
