Once we installed the Hera software, we were greeted with this window. The first thing offered is key assignments, and here is where you would click on the button you want to change and reset it to various functions. There are also the six profiles at the right to select to set them differently for each profile. There are seventeen preset categories of commands under the mouse keys tab, and eleven normal functions under the tab showing universal scroll currently for the scroll wheel that is highlighted.
The Macro Management tab offers some of the most in depth settings available to create and edit Macros. There is everything from the basic functionality on up to modes of repeatability as well as being able to increase or decrease the speed of the command run to suit the specific game or application.
Mouse Control offers what is expected, as well. At the left, you can change the cursor speed, scroll speed, double click speed, polling rate, and Straight Path Correction or angle snapping. The right side allows for five levels to set, and the X and Y axis will move together in 100 DPI segments unless selected otherwise above, and there is also an LOD setting that can be adjusted.
Luminescence offers the option to change the lighting of the profile indicator and scroll wheel at the same time, and also you can choose which profile is what color. Lastly, you can control the intensity, but the head and taillights of this mouse are always red, no matter what is set here.
The sounds and timers tab allows you to do exactly that, set timers for whatever you need, and it also offers a few standard alarms as well as offering you to upload sound files. This way you could have your left click button play something audible, or for the profile button so you know you made a change without having to look for verification and get shot in the face in-game for your effort.
The next tab we have access to is the Timer settings. Here you can make a list of say pizza cook time, thirty minute warning from the last call from the misses as she is on her way home, or whatever you need. You can set the day of the week, the time of day, even down to the second. There are also options here to make these alarms show an OSD notification, where it goes, and the size that it will display.
Muscle Memory is a stats page for what you have done with this product. These are also the stats that you can upload online and compete against others for e-cookies and bragging rights.
The last functional tab is the Update/Support section. Here it shows we have the GMS1100 running firmware version 41. The check shows we have the latest available, as it does with the Hera 0.8.0 that we are currently running. There are also boxes that will take you to the forums and their support page at the bottom.
