I bought a Cyborg R.A.T. 7 mouse and it's a awesome mouse, but I've been having trouble trying to setting the 3 modes. I was trying to set the profiles for a default, Call of Duty, and Counter Strike. The whole software isn't really user friendly, so I very confused on what I'm doing.
There are actually two sets of settings that can be configured in the Cyborg Profile Editor, the 'Sensitivity Settings' and 'Programming'.
Sensitivity settings allows you to switch DPI settings on the fly, and is operated by the rocker switch just below the middle mouse button while the current setting is shown on the mouse with the array of four lights to the left of mouse button 1 (left click);
As you can see from the above screenshot, the sensitivity settings allows configuration of both the main mouse sensitivity and the sensitivity when the 'precision aiming' button is held.
Button programming allows you to rebind every mouse button to a particular series of keystrokes, or other commands. The current set of binds selected is shown with the multicoloured 'mode' button, directly to the left of mouse button 1. Depending on the currently selected mode, this button will be;
The programming settings screen looks like this:
If for example, I wanted to make the second scroll wheel (thumb wheel) zoom in or out in a game like, for example, World of Warcraft, I would simply rebind what this scroll wheel does.
In World of Warcraft I use HOME to zoom in and END to zoom out, so I would rebind the thumb wheel settings as follows;
What I did here, was click in the area from the previous screenshot that linked to the thumbwheel ("Thumb Anticlockwise", "Thumb Clockwise") and then entered the keystrokes that I wanted using that scroll wheel to perform. This means literally just clicking "Thumb Anticlockwise" and pressing the Home key, and then clicking the green tick and giving the action a name - in this case "Zoom In".
Finally I need to save these changes, by clicking on 'Save As'. In this case I called my profile "WoW".
You can test that the keystrokes you have bound work, by clicking on the test button. If you have made changes to a mode which is not currently active (ie: You're editing mode 2 - blue - and the mouse has mode 1 - red selected, you will need to change the mode on the mouse by pressing the mode button before the correct profile is selected);
If you are happy with your changes, click the 'Activate Profile' button to activate the changes.
One final step that you need to take to ensure that your new settings are applied at system startup, is to select your profile and mark it as the "Startup profile". To do this, find the system tray icon for your Cyborg RAT control panel, right click on it, and then right click on the profile you've just saved and mark it as the startup profile;
If you don't do this final step - any setting changes you've made will not be re-applied when you reboot your computer.
All said, I agree the Cyborg profile software is a bit poor, confusing, and generally unintuitive, but once you know how quirky it can be you can get the results that you want out of it.
