post #2641 of 3821
My GLIDE 7 came into day and holy mother this is one large mat. I thought I would hate the big robot/cyborg thingy on it but honestly it just fades away once the nades fly. Im finding it difficult trying to use the whole mat, im so use to a few inches play on either side of my Razer Vespula pad that old habits leave me in the bottom of the mat. Lowered the dpi in half and I still cant reach the end of the mat before the edge of the montor.

Its thick and smooth and comfortable, so far its a very big step up. The MMO7 tracks instantly better than the Vespula pad allowed for. No jittery, twitchy movement. I have had the mouse curser stall a few times, I had it with my Vespula and hoping this mat would eliminate that problem. Time will tell thumb.gif For $17.99 BEST PAD EVER biggrin.gif

Hey guys, how y'all been?

So I've got a question regarding an issue that I have with the 5-D thumb button on the M.M.O.7 Now I love this feature, and I do believe that it was built almost perfectly on their end. It's not exactly "tight" persay, but if it was looser it would definitely be a problem because it'd not only feel cheap, but we'd have never actually have any control at any point in time. So my issue is that there is no way in which I can place my thumb so that...
1) I can easily move the thumb-nub joystick in any of the four directions quickly
and 2) So that the tip of my thumb will not get just moist enough to end up slipping after like only a minute in this position (more noticeable while gaming and when fractions of a second of can be especially crucial).

So finally, my question; has anyone found a fix for this? I'm thinking that their has to be some kind of rough (I've got a picture of a micro rhino-like liner in my head for some reason) or if necessary even a tacky solution that might be applied. I'd rather not go the sticky route since I think it would just get annoying fast, but I was just wondering if anyone else had had a problem with this and if so, thought of an answer for it. It doesn't have to be any kind of chemical applicant, of course. I've tried some gloves I had lying around from when I used to play receiver in football, but even that little bit of fabric felt so bulky in general, that looking back I can't honestly remember if it actually helped. I've kind of learned to just deal with, but I just wanted to throw this "Hail Mary" out there because at this point I am quite open to any suggestions.

Try this.
Get a plaster/bandaid. just a small one for ur finger.

Cut of the sticky bit (throw the rest) and cut out a peice that will fit ontop of the button.

Make sure the plaster is a material one .. not those shiney water proof ones.

Stick it to the button and should find it more grippy.

I done this with my old PSP1000 analog stick as it was always crap to try keep my thumb on it whilst using it for movement control on Monster Hunter and FF Disidia...

its not exactly a 'proper' mod but its cheap and it work .atleast it did for me and my PsP smile.gif

I hated the psp for just that reason, always slipping. I don't have that issue with the mmo7 but I have large hands. For example covering the mouse with my hand my fingertips rest on the mat in front of the mouse and my palm lays fat on the mat behind the mouse... my hand is like a blanket lol. I find the 5way switch very comfy and no issues with manipulating it.

Perhaps the little round bump pad that stop your cupboards from slamming when closing them pressed onto the button will help or drill a small hole into the button and insert a rod of some type so it protrudes outwards farther will allow for better control and less slipping.

Good luck wink.gif

Hey guys!

First post smile.gif

So, I'm tempted to get an MMO 7, however I'm wondering how the new glossy version are?

i.e are they slippery, or good?

Or... should I just get the standard matte version?

Also, I heard there are 1 or 2 changes to the newer versions... anything to watch out for?

Cheers!

Cyborg version

-Thumb area can be swung outward like the rat 7/9
-Cyborg branded markings
-action lock buttons were not adjustable off the bat, required software after the fact
-nice case to hold the interchangeable parts, weights

MadCatz version

-new thumb screw and outward movement is no longer possible, only forward and backwards movement
-Madcatz branded markings
-action lock buttons disable/enable included with profile editor
-new smaller (nicer) shipping packaging

DOES NOT INCLUDE PARTS BOX ... cheapOs kookoo.gif

How does the new, Mad Catz branded RAT 7 differ from older releases?

@NightCabbage

Check my post here which addresses glossy surfaces:

@Gabriel Ruan

The only changes are branding and the parts box isn't included any more. Although the much smaller packaging that's the result of omitting that parts box effectively becomes the parts box anyway (if you see what I mean).

Hello,

I just bought a Cyborg M.M.O. 7 (with all packaging tongue.gif), photo to come.

I am surprised by the buttons 2 and 3, they seems not be fixed as well as it shoud be and do not inspire confidence in their solidity, as do you think ?

For the rest I am satisfied.
post #2650 of 3821
Ok thanks for the replies smile.gif

So rich says there are no changes but packaging, but cravin says the thumb area is no longer "swingable" - which ive heard before.

Glossy surface sounds fine then.

Jesse says some buttons feel not solid - are they the same ones people keep complaining fall off? Lol

Looking forward to giving one a go!
