You're the guy who returned the Castor because of the same reason. I really don't understand what the big deal is - you can't find a mouse that doesn't do that to some extent. Rubberized coating does this.
Maybe wmo but man cmon. You need to get over it and just play. Clean the mouse once a week with water.
Kinda ridiculous.

Maybe change the lighting so that it's not so obvious.

Those hydrophobic coatings are absorbent to a point, from what I have seen. Meaning, there will be marks wherever you touch the mouse and they can stay there for a long time. I guess you could wipe down the mouse a few times and use the cold air from a blow-dryer. You would have to do that every single time you touch the mouse.

If people are very annoyed by this hydrophobic coating, they should paint their mouse and finish it with a gloss coat.

No one really cleans their mice until they become really gross (1 year+)

lol, you can only speak for yourself.
I clean mine a couple times a week, also for consistent grip.
Falcon26 has OCD written above his posts with this matter tho. tongue.gif

is there a fix for the sensor "flicking to groud / sky" issue?

just bought a rival and really like the shape etc, but the sensor seems to **** around sometimes :/

firmware: 0.54.0.0
engine version : 3.6.4
mousepad: zowie GS-R / also tried QcK+, same problem
dpi: 400
poling rate: 1000
no accel
windows 6 / 11

any tricks / tips to get rid of this bug?

thanks in advance

It was just posted about in the thread, on the current page.

That downgrade fix does not work here, keeps flashing blue and the progression bar stays 0% all the time.

LOL very true I do have OCD for certain things :-)

At least I'm not the only one thinking about :-) I saw a dozen reviews on amazon and most said this...

"The matte finish on the top quickly becomes coated in oil from your hands and becomes uncomfortable to use. It feels nice initially, but sweat just sticks to this thing like no other mouse I've ever used."

Also I'm not sure what is going on, but when I am on OC webpage if I go to a thread with several pages and go to any page it will rewind to the previous page like I have a button stick in or something. I checked the mouse and all the buttons look OK. And it only happens on OC webpage. Just tried it now, was on page 38 of a thread went to page 39 and before it stopped loading page 39 it went back to page 38. Tried it with my Rival 100 mouse and that one works just fine. Have there been issues of buttons getting stuck on this mouse?

That's just how rubber is.. you saw it on the mionix castor, and this is basically almost the same coating. You should've bought a silver, or white version to avoid marks. As for the buttons, never happened to me, the one you have could have issues.
