ROCCAT SWARM Software
After downloading and installing the SWARM software, we find it is made to be run from a folder, and not something that drains resources all of the time. The first window offered up is the "pinned" menu. By default, you will find the DPI settings, pointer speed adjustment, and the illumination section. This is customizable, and things from the other tabs can be added and removed at will to this tab.
Moving over to the settings tab, we find the main controls. There are sliders for sensitivity, vertical scroll speed, horizontal tilt speed, and double click speed on the left side. On the right, this is where the DPI selector sliders are located permanently, and below that we see the Windows pointer speed adjustment. Just out of frame to the bottom are check boxes, one is to enable mouse acceleration, and the other will display pointer trails.
The button assignment tab is where things get serious. To the left, you can custom assign layouts or use one from the pre-programmed offerings which are game specific. Then on the right, you can begin to set the default commands for each of the twelve buttons. There are lists upon lists of default options to choose from, but keep in mind, with the EasyShift system in play, there are a possible 24 commands that can be set to this section alone.
Scrolling down, still in the button assignment section, we are now dealing with the main eight buttons. Here again, you can arrange their default function, and set a secondary function to all via EasyShift. All told, we are now at 40 possible things that one hand can control. Keep in mind too, while only so many profiles can be saved onboard, you can assign a folder to house a multitude of various settings and game ready setups.
In the advanced setting section, we find things like the X/Y axis advanced adjustment, the ability to turn off the TCU and set the LOD or the polling rate at the bottom. The right side offers the lighting control where you can pick from the full RGB scale of colors, and even tray out modes and three ways of displaying that lighting. There is a section for sound feedback controls, and out of frame is a section to default the settings back to the factory defaults.
Since the Nyth has so much potential, and the multitude of games out there, or even the various profiles you could set for production purposes, there is this "manager" to keep it all under control. This is where you can start naming them to be used in the main settings, and is also where you go to load and offload profiles from the onboard memory. Also once set to the Nyth, this mouse will carry all of the settings with you, without the need for software.
The Macro Manager is also on point. Not only can you go through and program a Macro, import older ones, or delete from a list on the mouse or in a folder, there are a ton of pre-set options in games as well. This is very intuitive to use, and once set, can be addressed in the main or secondary functions of any of the forty button settings.
