Dream Machines DM1 PRO S Giveaway - Matte or Glossy with PMW3360 Sensor - Page 21  

post #201 of 260
I'd be happy if there software was not bloated with gimmicky options and design that makes you want to bang nails into the wall with your eyeballs. It's so easy get caught on the 'let's make everything cool and flashy'-train and have the software end up looking like someone blew up a fruit stall and put some lamps and a smiley face sticker on the remains.
Other than that, everyone has pretty much said everything I'd want in the software as well, so I will just echo three of the things:

1) Software that does not need to be installed for the mouse to work.

2) LED-light that can be turned on/off in the software.

3) An option to select which LED-colour is associated with a given DPI setting, so that I can choose green for 1,800 DPI if that is my choosing, for instance.

agreed with the cpi steps: allow every step of 100 to be set

Software features I'd like to see:

In the software, label the physical buttons with letters, and let me determine which input (mouse1, mouse2, etc.) to assign to each physical button. There's a whole lot more that can be done here, like macros and modifier buttons that change what the other buttons do, but that may require too much development time when there's stuff like autohotkey already available.

resettable click counter.

Security issue: Make the user press some specific combination of buttons on the mouse in order to proceed with a firmware update. This will make it a lot harder for malicious firmware to get onto the mouse, and also gives you the option of letting the mouse accept customized (unsigned) firmware without introducing a dire security hole. (if you're curious what this helps address, there's a blackhat talk called badusb).

If you put a customizable debounce delay in, like other people are asking, the delay on button press should still be zero, with the release delay customizable. You can get rid of the need for this completely by using the NC contact on a double throw switch to detect release instead of relying on the delay, but that's not really software.

What a coincidence...

Here we would like to announce our final Lighting round of this giveaway project - we will distribute 3 units of DM1 PRO S mice to the winners of this stage.

Here our final question: What is the most anticipated software feature you would like to see on our products and why?

Rules:

- one entry per person;
- users with 50+ posts can participate;
- winners of the two previous rounds cannot win in this round;
- deadline is 72 hours from the moment this post is published;

Good luck!

I'd love to see something that requires no install and is lightweight in terms of operation.

Please have the option of removing DPI steps.

I like to have lighting disabled almost always, but sometimes my mood changes and I like having it on, so having the option to disable/enable lighting would be great.

Some form of LOD adjustment would be great whether it be manual or automatic like Logitech's. But please allow us to revert back to factory default LOD.

Firmware updating capabilities would be excellent.

And I know you are asking for software feature input, but something I've wanted for a while is a mouse that features swappable top shells each with different click force requirements. I know that many prefer a lighter click, some like stiff clicks, and I'm somewhere in between. This is probably expensive but it would be an interesting way to make the mouse appeal to a greater audience.

Since the 3360 sensor has native DPI increments of 100, the most useful software feature would be to be able to assign custom DPI steps. For isometric and 2d genres like RTS and MOBA, the options for sensitivity adjustment are much more limited than in FPSes, so having more adjustment on the mouse level can actually be useful here.

- Doesn't need installation
- Full range of 3360 DPI steps
- Choose number of DPI steps, each with its own DPI and LED color setting
- Polling rate adjustment
- Manual lift-off distance adjustment
- Ability to configure or disable all buttons, including the ones intended for DPI
- Ability to disable LEDs individually, having other lighting patterns (breathe effect, color shifting etc) can be a plus

All the above should be saved on the mouse.

Something I'd really like is adjustable acceleration, both with presets and manual curve control. By presets I mean ability to choose to mimic the acceleration style of perhaps a particular OS version or a game/engine. A manual curve control would be for those that would like a sort of custom curve.
This will be the bomb.
post #207 of 260
I would like to see software that allows true customization. Locked or variable sensor fps. 2000hz+ polling rate. User defined acceleration curve. Nobody to my knowledge is offering these things with their products at the moment so even though it would cost a bit more to implement it would be unrivaled in features

Generally it's matte for sweaty hands and glossy for dry.

True...also humidity. is the matte finish similar to mice like zowie?
