HyperX NGenuity Software

After downloading and installing NGenuity, this window is the first to pop up. It currently shows the mouse is lit in wave mode, that we are in the default profile, and at the bottom, you can select from the three profiles and customize the settings. On the right, you can see three views of the mouse to see if what you have set is what you want before closing up shop.

Clicking on the plus icon at the bottom, allows the user to make a custom profile. You can name it and add an image for it on the left, pick an application to load with it in the middle, and to the right, there is a list of games that you can click on to tag to the profiles.

After the profile is made, you can click in the box that says customize. That brings up another menu, where right now we can address the lighting. Not only can you pick from various preset modes in the standard settings, in the advanced menu you can change any or all of the thirty-two LEDs to whatever color you see fit.

Performance deals with the three DPI levels, and it shows that you can have up to five in total. All you have to do is drag the colored sliders in the graph below to set the DPI level of each. You can also set a color that the mouse will flash denoting which DPI setting is in use.

The Macro menu is intuitive, with many options to use. Name the macro on the left, select if you want delays and or set them manually, and once you click record, the actions will show in the box to the right. As far as editing goes, you can add operations in the Macro, but there is no option to delete or edit times. This is also where you can assign keys, which is essentially remapping of the six buttons to do whatever it is you want them to do.
