I seem to be the only one with this issue and, even then, it only happens occasionally for me. It happened first when I plugged it in after using a different mouse and it had to do the initial driver installation. Then it happened when I booted my computer up for the first time yesterday. Then I tried to recreate it by fully restarting my computer and everything was fine.

My exact method of installing the firmware was 1. Open the exe 2. Click update 3. Update finished (never touched the mouse) then unplugged and replugged it in 4. Click exit on the updater

Edit: Plugged it in again, did the initial driver installation thing again and everything's fine. I'll keep using it for a few days and see if there's a sequence of some kind.

Edit: Flashed the original firmware and booted up my computer again. No problems. Think there is something wrong with the firmware, at least with my hardware @Peter Nixeus

Edit 2: Recreated my first boot up by turning off my computer at the wall, leaving it for a minute, switching it back on at the wall and turning it on. No problems on original firmware.

Edit 3: Just did the same thing with the beta firmware. Shut off computer and started it back up. No problems with tracking. Then recreated first boot up by turning it off at the wall. No problems again. WHAT IS GOING ON? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

So, when do you plan on extending your Amazon.Co.UK shipping beyond UK and germany?
To Sweden for example.
I think this is like the only mouse you cannot order to Sweden.

Has the ''scraping/scratching'' glide been fixed with this mouse yet? Specifically when moving the mouse towards you or down on the mousepad? Bought a couple of these and all of them had this issue.

It was a fantastic mouse outside of that issue - though the scraping my mousepad (QCK) was a deal breaker. I really want to try this mouse again if this issue has been fixed.

Thanks.

Soo i have a little update regarding my "semi-bricked" Revel in case anybody is interested:

I flashed back to beta firmware after resoldering RMB, it worked for some reason. So i tried it with LMB, where most soldering points are gone and needs improvising. But could not get it right yet.

Either the switch work BUT is too elevated (due to the cooper wire i added) so it is already pressed when the case is closed.

Or the switch doesn't work in the first place.

One thing: The soldering points or what you call them can be lost or detached very easily.
First one i lost with the desolder pump. Second with "desolder wire/copper(?)".
And even heating the solder and pulling the switch out carefully resulted in the third one gone...

TL;DR:

Be careful when desoldering switches on your Revel. No matter how carefully you are, there is a chance of loosing a "soldering point"... (Atleast on my unit)

I did that with my zalman so I threw a teensy in it, which was a much more difficult thing to do than like, exposing the trace and soldering a connection between the trace and switch
post #936 of 2372
Hmm, is there a trick or something to not loose the connection points? (If theres a trick at all)
Or is it determined by the build quality of the PCB?

Dont wanna do the same mistake on my second revel^^, if im unlucky and get bad clicks with the new one.

I replaced all (not only LMB and RMB) switches at my revel without any problems.

The connection points will get destroyed if you use too much heat too long.
Often the solder from the factories is hard to remove.
To desolder the switch (get off the old solder) put some new solder at it. With the heat from the new solder the factory solder will heat up well
and you could suck it with a pump.

Booted my computer up for the first time today and got the weird bug again. I'm slowly giving up on this mouse.

Edit: Now I can't revert back to the original firmware frown.gif

I'd think Nixeus would probably be much inclined to cross ship you a replacement so they could have their engineers look at yours and see what's going on.

Mhh i normally do it like that. Putting new solder on the factory solder, etc, but maybe i heated it too long like you said.
Thanks.
