Zowie EC2-A side buttons issue in Overwatch...

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello, I just picked up a Zowie EC2-A and definitely like the feel of it, but I'm having an issue that's really annoying me...

In Overwatch, I use the side buttons on the mouse as my melee. When I go to set the melee button in the controls settings of Overwatch and bind the front side button to be my melee, it doesn't work. In game the only button that works is the side back button, the front button doesn't do anything... even if I assign it in the settings. Has anyone else had this issue? What can I do to fix it?

Thanks!

Only hardware buttons reported to windows can be bound in Overwatch (this applies to other games too).
M1/M2 (Left and right click, aka mouse button 1 and 2), Middle Mouse, button 4, Button 5.

If the mouse button isn't reported as one of those, it can't be bound.

They're reported as mouse 4 and mouse 5 and are both recocnized in Overwatch but no matter which one I choose, it uses the back one closest to me.

I think I may have had that on my non Zowie mouse too, it was simply a bug in OW. Didn't bother me since game was in free beta but I would definitely check with OW if they can use both mouse 4 and 5 at once for 2 different actions at all.

Curious to know as i just ordered the ec-2a and i play overwatch with the back side button beeing my melee and the front side button beeing ult. And they are button 4 and 5 on all my mice and work just fine in OW.

So problem is not with the game.
