'DeathAdder 2013 Edition' onboard memory mod/ alternative software?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Sup yall!
Please excuse the missing of apostrophes, as Im using a different keyboard to my other one with a different layout.

So I really want to get a new mouse to play mah games with, and after searching for a mouse that was optical, palm grip and wasnt a G400 (cord problems, me-no-lyk scroll wheel and not so good looks (IMHO)) I landed on the DA2013 edition. I know people seem to not like razer for their bad build quality and high price, but i could get one for just below 50 pounds, which Id be willing to pay. I like everything about it, apart from the BS software. Register to use a mouse...? cmon ._. I heard something about being able to use legacy drivers, but its not quite clear to me what that would change. So my question really is that is there alternative software available, (for changing DPI and binding the two side buttons) or would it be possible to stick some memory inside the mouse, connect it up and use some kind of basic software to change DPI and bind?

Problems Im thinking about would be having to write new software and how Id connect it up in the first place. I dont suppose I could use another mouses software because as far as Im aware, this is the only mouse that uses this sensor, so changing DPI would be a problem. Im guessing the binding the side buttons part wouldnt be too difficult as youd just need to be able to recognise two basic inputs... right? Also, I have no experience in programming, Im just hoping that someone with the ability will make offline software and show how to add onboard memory. If thats even possible.

Uh... Creating your own driver software and somehow installing your own memory on the mouse? Isn't that going too far to avoid one registration?

That said, the mouse does have on-board memory to store the current settings. It's been confirmed numerous times. Once it's set, you can remove all driver software.

If registration still is too much of a problem, I don't see any other way to toggle dpi. You should just buy DA3.5G or Zowie EC1.
