Hi guys, is anyone interested in an app that alters the MMO7 led color when certain buttons are clicked (as latch to stay on, or else only while clicking)? I'm busy developing it in my free time if anyone is keen to try it? So far can change the led through a form, but trying to detect clicks so that its dynamic. smile.gif

hey guys, just got my rat 7, loving it already. I'm setting up macros, and I'm wanting to alter volume. Initially it isn't hard to just do the volume up or down, but I'd like to make it go faster, like in larger increments. Any idea how? I tried something and it somehow looped infinitely and I tried closing it and next minute blue screen.

Very interesting idea! I personally would like to see this.

Well it appears that my mouse is now starting to get the click movement that others were talking about. Great.

 

Edit: Cleaned the sensor and in the process the slight pressure on it may have put it back into place or did whatever to fix the problem

Good thing it has a two year warranty.

Edit:

And now for something completely different:

Has anyone seen this:

MadCatz STRIKE 7 modular keyboard? It looks very interesting, but I'm a little leery about a few things. First, locally it's $329.99. Wow. I wouldn't mind so much except that it doesn't use mechanical keys, but a membrane system. They say it has tactile feedback, but none of the specs mention important things like how many simultaneous keys pressed and anti ghosting. They say you get the tactile feedback without the noise, but I like the noise. I gave up the Corsair K90 and one of the reasons I did was because the keys were too quiet and I couldn't feel the tactile feedback their Cherry keys should have had.

Maybe Madcatz Rich can talk to us about this membrane system they're using? One thing's for sure, at $330 I'm not going to be an early adopter. I wonder if they plan on making any other modules for it? I might consider purchasing one if they made a module with larger movement keys surrounded by macro keys (or even keys that mimic keyboard keys). All in all, looks pretty sweet. I will enjoy reading the reviews.

Also, it's unfortunate that at this price they did not use USB3. USB3 has better power capabilities than USB2 does, and would have eliminated the need for an ac adapter. Another thing is that it has integrated Teamspeak. That's OK I guess, but I have to wonder what portion of the price accounts for that? I would rather save $20 (or whatever) than have something like Teamspeak integrated into the keyboard. Also, most games I play use Ventrillo. Integrating some companies software into such an expensive peripheral is a mistake in my opinion. Some people using Ventrilo will find their $330 keyboard has a feature they don't use.

Still, I'm very intrigued by this keyboard. It's definitely a step in the right direction.

@ Mad catz rich.

Quick question: Does the RAT3 have the angle snapping function enabled or disabled? (Or both with firmware offloading?)


Not sure if you have that information, but I would like to add any possible info to my thread for reference.

Is it the noise you miss or the tactile feedback? Usually it's the latter, in which case you should be fine with the S.T.R.I.K.E.7. In our research we found that the most popular mechanical switches are the Cherry Blue and Brown - the others being a long way behind in any polls. This membrane gives you the tactile feedback of a blue with that bump in the keypress but without the click that you get. Or alternatively it's kind of like a brown but with a much firmer tactile bump - many people find browns hard to distinguish from reds or blacks because they say that the bump isn't strong enough. There's more info about it over here:

http://www.madcatz.com/the-science-behind-s-t-r-i-k-e-7-keys/

As for simultaneous keypresses - up to 7, or, in other words, more than the fingers on your hand when the other one is planted on your R.A.T. wink.gif

The integrated Teamspeak doesn't cost you or us anything - the guys over at Teamspeak have a robust SDK that we could work with to integrate support. Vent and Mumble? Not so much, although we'd be happy to work with them to implement support.
