GIGABYTE M8000 Xtreme Gaming Mouse

While we've had a look at some of the windows within the main software, let's just take the time to have a quick look at the Ghost software as you see it when you open it.


In the middle of the screen you're greeted by a picture of the mouse and all the buttons.




From here you can change what you want each button to do. There are a number of presets on the left hand side which you can use to change the action of your buttons. On the right side of the window you have the macros scripts that you've setup which you're able to drag and drop into the button you want to associate it with.


Across the top we've got two sections; the first is the left side which lets us get into some of the other windows which include the macro editing and sensitivity editing which we looked at on the last page. The scrolling one opens up a screen that lets you adjust the amount of lines that you scroll with each click, while the Windows button simply fires up the Windows mouse settings.


On the other side you're able to select the color of the LED. You've got a couple of preset ones and if you click the Color button it opens a box up with even more options. To be honest, some of the colors don't really look like they do on-screen with the white being more of a pale blue, but the chances are you'll find a color you like without any real drama. If the LED annoys you, all that has to be done is to select the color black.


All in all, the software is pretty nice. It looks fancy, but isn't complicated. If you're interested in macros you've got loads of options. In the event you're thinking that it's a feature you might like to try out, the drag and drop setup is really nice and easy to get used to.
