Theres literally nothing stopping a frankenmouse with adequate cash funding and patience, I'm just thinking off the top of my head issues that I've come across in the past.

The 303 scroll-wheel is intergrated into the top shell of the 303 and the work around is currently like this:


Now I understand what is meant ... and ... well .. .damn.

That's going to put a spanner in the works. For a different mouse, like the SS Ikari, I suppose it won't be possible to do what they did with the Mico (which I thought I was pretty cool). Any ideas how to take the scroll wheel out, and place it on anyic mouse?

As for mouse buttons, I think I can solve that. and the same for sensor position. Just checking that tracking won't be too affected if I did this, right (thus rendering the entire project useless)?

Anyway, big thanks for your reply, it was helpful (if a bit defeating! tongue.gif). thumb.gif

If you like a shape, then you're done searching for your ideal mouse. A "better" sensor shouldn't make you play better. In fact, all sensors should "act" the same, just some have prediction/acceleration/etc. But that shouldn't stop you.

This is more than trying to get better at a game; this is a personal challenge to be better than the dunces that work at Logitech's designing department. Oh, and a sensor is very important to me; idc if it's placebo, I just want a good sensor.

fyi g303 in g100s shell raises sensor position by 6mm or so (dont remember exactly)

Hmm okay, but I won't be using that mouse so I can't complain tongue.gif


If the sensor was too high, I'd attempt to just cut a len/sesnor shaped hole in the bottom of the mouse and insert it to keep it as low as possible.

If all this fails, I guess I could try to get the G502 to go on a diet ... I mean, I don't need extra buttons, the LED(s), and some of that unnecssary plastic, for example - BUT THAT'S LAST RESORT.
post #14 of 28
Why would you need to solder to change the G502 sensor position if it's on a separate PCB? Or are you talking about something else?

Isn't the PCB that houses the G502's sensor wired directly to the main PCB anyway, so what's with the extra soldering?

Still looking for tips / advice / ideas how to remove the Scrollwheel from the G303 and put it on any mouse.

OOOORRRR could I use another mouse's scroll wheel instead and solder it onto the PCB? [It would mean removing the light sensor there, but would it still be compatible?]

It's going to make the sensor act funky, either use a dremel and sand the bottom shell so the sensor gets closer to the surface or just sand away the plastic around the lens so it becomes a rectangle instead of a square piece, which is what I did.

Seems like a good idea actually. Still waiting on Vols' implementation of the G303 buttons / scrollwheel that can be seen on the reverse 3366 engineering thread.

If anyone can answer why the G502 is harder to implement, thatr'd be grand, as well my previous post (here)'s questions, thta'd also be grand(der).

i mean raise in the y-axis not z-axis.

That's such an easy change to implment I borderline don't care if anyone tells me there is an issue here.

I'm just worried about how to get a working scroll wheel!! confused.gif
