I’ve looked at the Azeron before as a potential Logitech G13 replacement. Good to know you like it. I have tiny little baby hands, so the adjustability is a big draw (I can’t comfortably reach some keys on a g13 or nostromo-type board).
How is the software to use? That has been the one thing that has held me back from trying one.
Lefty who uses the mouse left-handed, and I’ve been doing it that way for so long I can’t go back. My brain plasticity is gone, and I can only proceed as I ever have. Worse, I use the numpad and nearby keys for movement, which leads to all kinds of problems. Almost every game requires a slightly different setup.
So many posts about alternate key binds or left-handed configurations begin with an apology, as if there’s a flaw in using the tools that way. I wish games would just let us bind anything to anything. Let me play how my brain wants me to, I’m begging you. (Especially you, Bethesda.)
Yeah, you can adjust the length and spacing of the arm thingies. My hands are small-ish so I moved them in close.
The software is basic but it works fine. It’s very quick and straightforward to set up new profiles and key assignments.
For the analog thumbstick, you can adjust the offset to make the direction you push for forward, back, etc. feel natural. The thumbstick can work like a regular analog stick from a gamepad, or simulate WASD keyboard presses for games that don’t support controllers or can’t handle simultaneous input.
My main beef with the software is that I have to choose game profiles manually. The Z Engine software used to let me associate a profile with the game executable to that it would switch to the right profile automatically when I launched a game. I’d love to see that feature added.
Yes. It’s an analog stick that feels much like the one in my XB1 gamepad.
For a lot of games, I can use it for analog movement like the left stick on a gamepad at the same time as I use the mouse for aiming/shooting/whatever. There are some games that freak out when I try to use an analog controller and mouse simultaneously, or don’t have gamepad support, so in those games the stick can simulate WASD keyboard controls. Analog + mouse works generally fine in most of the big games though.
I’m apparently I’m the odd one here. I’m left handed and use the mouse with the left hand. In fact, when I was growing up I used the mouse so much on the left side that my parents would use their left hand to use the mouse when they wanted to use the family computer. HAHA!
I still used WASD to move etc.
Leftie with his left hand on the mouse here, and I never use left-handed options. Played the Rock Band Guitar with the left hand on the frets (and I never got why you would use your primary hand for the strum bar), and I don’t change the button layout or something like that. I shoot with the middle finger and I think that’s poetic.
I may not be understanding exactly how that works. I don’t think the analog stick can emulate a mouse button press. The keys definitely can.
edit: Maybe that’s something reWASD can do? I’ve never tried using 3rd party software, but I’ve read that some people use reWASD as it apparently has more features than the software supplied by Azeron.
That’s a bit of a bummer. I’ve been using the g13 thumb stick for LMB for years. I find it to be low impact to hold the thumbtack in a direction for long periods, compared to other options. Sure I could figure a way around it. Appreciate the info
Also a lefty using a traditional right sided mouse. Guess I just used to it as a kid sharing a computer with my brother & not always wanting to switch sides? Especially after the ergonomic mice started to become popular, the way back was impractial and I just stuck with it.
Funnily enough I also play the guitar as a righty, but everything else I do with my left hand!
My wife is also a lefty who uses a right hand mouse. Ultimately the annoyance of having to get left handed micr, combined with having to switch settings every time using a shared computer, meant she learned that way in grade school.
