I don't know if it would work for the 2012 edition, but you can get a pre-synapse driver (3.03) and try it. It works for my Naga Epic offline. If you would like to try it for your version, toss me a pm and I'll send you a copy of my backup.

I actually can't believe what I've just read in this thread. OP, this might be a daft question, but why can't you return the mouse for a refund?

I know for a fact if this happened to me I would be sending that mouse from whence it came. I guess due to the UK's inability to offer a decent PC store locally, I make all my purchases online and am covered under the distance selling rights to an extent, but seriously it seems to me you've paid good money to a company to use their product which clearly isn't fit for the purpose that you bought it for, so why not get your money back?

I recently bought a deathadder 3.5g mouse. I was told I would need the Synapse software to use my mouse, I thought ok must be how they do drivers now. Then I realised I needed an account, again no problem I thought. Then the problems started. I had mouse lag in which it would stutter and misbehave as well as the LED lights would flicker on the mouse. Looking around the internet I found it was a common complaint and could be fixed by updating the firmware I did that to no avail.
I then put in a support ticket to figure out what was going wrong with my mouse. A guy comes back with all these troubleshooting suggestions, having followed those and got no results I asked why do I need to use Synapse 2.0 is there no proper drivers any more and why do I need to use this bloatware software package. Low and behold on the next email some proper drivers turned up with a normal config utility and best of all no login or mouse problems.
The only thing I can suggest is to ask for proper drivers and ditch this synapse thing altogether. The Mice are good Mice its just the current driver platform is pure crap.
I have found more and more companies now doing this bloatware driver platform and it has to stop we do not need flashy gfx or cloud storage for a mouse driver let alone any driver. all we ask is for a driver that performs well and does what it says it will do.
Ahh see that deathadder is an old model, so they still have those pre-synapse drivers sitting around.
Hell you can google and it will link you the old ones on their site, but if you naturally browse around their site, everything leads to Synapse.

I did the update to synapse for the naga 2012, so far so good. No real horrors as of yet. However it's informing me my Blackwidow Ultimate has a firmware update, but I refuse to update that in the event I decide to go back to standard drivers and find out the keyboard won't be detected because of wrong firmware.
And I've read mixed reports of being able to roll back the firmware.

Also the 2012 naga didn't pick up on the older drivers. I actually had 3.02 installed and no luck.
I know these guys have stand alones for the old stuff still and wouldn't be surprised if one of the perks of working there is to have a synapse-free setup.
Someone needs to start up a fake email chain complaint about not having internet and only can email by phone and need an alternate non synapse for 2012.
Also that site razer blueprints has been under construction for a year + now. Cant find some blueprints for an LED mod.

More than likely I will be Ive got a while on the return period. Waiting to see what Razer has to say about it first though but Im guess that might be futile.
Its a shame though because I dont know any mice that have all the buttons on the side like the Nagas do.

sent you a pm with the 3.03 driver link. also, they're not set up exactly like the Naga's are, but http://www.corsair.com/us/vengeance-gaming/vengeance-gaming-mice/vengeance-m90-performance-mmo-rts-laser-gaming-mouse.html seems to be the same style and amount of buttons.

edit, meant http://www.logitech.com/en-us/mice-pointers/mice/g600-mmo-gaming-mouse although the corsair mouse is kind of similar too.

Drivers didnt work unfortunately. Said Naga Epic wasnt detected when the software launched

I do like the Logitech G600 didnt know they made a mouse like that. Ive been happy with all my other logitech products in the past too they have great customer service.

I had the 3.03 drivers in for my regular Naga, and nope, didn't work for 2012.
Side note, the Synapse madness begins. Because it claims I have a firmware update available for my BlackWidow, it has disabled all macro and key swapping abilities on the Blackwidow. I can make a macro and set it to a macro key, nothing. Change a letter to something else, still the default key. Tried macro off Naga, perfectly fine.
They really do disable all special features until you update. Still holding off on the update for a little bit.

I was also taken by surprise when I first tried to launch Synapse at work. I do AutoCAD drafting most of the day, so an accurate mouse is a must. My company's firewall actually blocks the Synapse software completely so I had to install the older driver.



Spoiler!
