I'm just more surprised a G500 couldn't do that out of the box as well, as least with the right software settings.


On-The-Fly switching is different than what I'm trying to achieve.
On the fly switching: you got 2 different buttons on the mouse. 1 is binded to lower sensitivity, 1 is binded to raise sensitivity.

I'm trying to do both actions with 1 button.

On the fly switching: Click button 1, DPI goes up 1 level. Click button 2, DPI goes down 1 level

What I want to do: While Button 1 is pressed, lower DPI 1 level. Once Button 1 is released, raise DPI 1 level. Just like the R.A.T mouse does.

Lets put this in a gaming situation.
You're leaning over a wall with a sniper riffle. You get your crossair next to someone's head and you want to slow down your motion.

With On The Fly switching, you have to press Button 1, finish aiming, take your shot, then press Button 2 to get back to your usual DPI setting. Oh and make sure nobody headshots you while you're looking for that Button2.

With my intentions: You're leaning over the same wall, get your crossair next to someone head and press button 1(and keep it pressed), finish aiming, take your shot, release button1 and bam. You're ready to go hunting again.

Precision Aim Mode
Hit your target the first time every time. Use the ST Programming Software to set your desired Precision Aim speed (mouse sensitivity), then hold down the Precision Aim button to slow down mouse movement to a level that works for you. A deadly weapon that will hit your enemy where it hurts
