Hi Guys,

Still in Beta but please find the updated firmware.

Dpi1 = 800dpi (old version also 800dpi but interpolated)
Dpi2 = 1600dpi (old version: 1800dpi)
Dpi3 = 4000dpi (old version: 3500dpi)

Noticeably higher LOD compared to FW 32.

Lift off isn't a sensor issue. Beta firmware aswell.

I'm not complaining since it is beta, merely stating my observations.

On FW 32 I had a hard time being able to hold the mouse completely off my pad and getting it to track. On this new one it is much easier. Don't know if it is a big enough difference that it would be noticeable in game yet, but I definitely notice it when looking for it.

-Polling clipping seems to be fixed. 500-1000 hz also seem better than 125-250hz from the 5 mins of observation.

-Max speeds seem to be similar to a normal configured A3X6X+ mouse. 800 DPI capable of tracking well into 3.3-3.6m/s (Edit: 4.15 m/s @ 127 counter) on my Goliathus Speed via 1000hz. (a native 400 step would likely provide even better results) 1600 CPI around 2.3ms on same surface.

-Lift off is higher as stated, but it's not really a con or so to say. I would also like lower lift off distance, but understand the complications involved with current gen optical sensors and lens.

-I understand that we all have preferences, but I think whoever is creating the firmware should focus on cursor quality, speed (IPS), and stability of the mouse as a whole. Messing with parameters that lower lift off just create a double edged sword effect.. Of course a lower lift off firmware would still be nice, but it shouldn't be the main focus as it can be self fixed via proper tape fix.

A lot of people won't understand my statement, but I'm sure its clear to those that do.


Edit: For a "beta" firmware, it's pretty good. Couple driver issues though.

Wow, this is awesome! I'm about to test this out asap, so far the feedback seems good. Just another question, will you guys be sticking with the 3 settings (800, 1600, 4000)? or will you add 3200.

Also, when you say the old version was 800 but interpolated, do you mean that the new version is 800 native, thus should result in smoother performance?

Yes.

Edit: Proper Spawn tape fix. Avoid covering the "eye"

So far I have only tested 800 and 1600 CPI at 500 Hz:
- 800 CPI / 500 Hz - PCS is above 5 m/s on my no-name black cloth pad
- 1600 CPI / 500 Hz - PCS is clipped at 3 m/s

CMCarter - really nice of you guys to release this firmware. Please concentrate on what Skylit has stated, and only when you have sorted out every other problem should you release a low-LOD version. I'll be ordering a couple of Spwns soon in case you guys stop producing it as you stated some time last year.
