EpicGear Software


Once the software is downloaded and installed, we open it up and find this. At the top are three tabs to choose from for various aspects of control, but dealing with the Main Control now, we see there is a lot to play with. On the left side, you can reprogram all but button four with up to eighteen optional functions including Macros and disable them. At the bottom are five profiles to choose to adjust, making for a combination of thirty possible commands at any given time. On the right, we can see that we have the laser sensor installed, and can adjust bo5ththe X and Y axis in 100 Dpi increments, up to 8200 DPI. If the optical sensor were in the mouse, the controls are similar, but the level of DPI at maximum jumps to 11,000 DPI.


Using one of the five profiles along the bottom of the initial window you see, we clicked on the Lighting button found in each of them. This smaller window will open and allow you to customize the lighting for each of the five profiles. You can pick one of the seven presets under default colors. Or you can move to the right for custom colors. In the custom section, you may enter RGB codes or select a color from the bar displayed along the bottom. If you want to use the mode to allow all of the colors to cycle through while in use, click on the black area above the Lighting button and an infinity-like symbol will appear denoting that mode is active.


The performance tab at the top allows you to address many other facets of functionality. In this menu, one can adjust the report rate, scroll wheel speed, double click speed, and the amount of pointer acceleration on the left side. On the right, you may adjust the LOD, set a power saving mode, use angle snapping, adjust acceleration, and set how long it takes to go from the profile default LED color into the AFM ambient lighting where the colors will cycle through the RGB spectrum.


The last thing that this software brings to the table is a fully functional Macro menu. At the left, you can create, rename, import, export, and delete various Macros, and the record and stop button are under the window where the commands will appear. Below that, you can also ignore time delays or even insert a delay with adjustable timing. The right side of the menu is left to edit any Macro you may be working on. Here is where you can insert delays where needed and adjust them so that the timing is perfect and fully functional. This software also allows the addition of extra mouse events into a Macro, and if you get in over your head, you can delete the additions as well.
