Chris, after a month or two of cajoling, won out; I ditched the shitty Apple mouse for the Naga. Shitty cell phone pic:



I'm still getting used to the thumb buttons, but it's getting easier. My wizard is still a two hand character because often while fighting I'm holding shift to stay in place, but I'm getting closer to the point where I'll be able to run around and type at the same time.

Next up - a mouse pad that isn't falling apart. :lol:

For some reason I didn't have you down as that much of a gamer.

A bit excessive, but I can certainly see its uses. WoW, I assume?

I'm really not a gamer. :lol: All I really play is Diablo III and Minecraft. :lol:

Part of Chris's argument was the numbered keypad under your thumb is also super useful for Reaper macros - set 1 to create and arm a new track, 2 to undo a take, etc. I'll have to fuck with that some more. I used to own an earlier version of this mouse, though, and it was super comfortable and the Apple mouse REALLY sucks, so...

Edit - besides, blinkie lights. The logo glows on and off. TOAN, bitches!

What do you need Reaper shortcuts/macros for?

You're better off doing things the long way anyway.

I can't tell if this is a recording joke or not.

It's always a recording joke :lol:

I have that mouse, and you can set up the Apple shortcuts to the number pad which is also useful, such as app expose, and cmd+q etc etc.

if your Naga craps out on you (and it will eventually) Look into the Logitech G600, it's larger, better quality and easier to track what button you're pressing.

My last Naga lasted me a damn long time, and I just got the "2014" version as well. I like it, but I really wish Razer would drop the stupid fucking X-Games style nonsense from their installers and software and just bundle a pro looking utility that works. Synapse is wonky at best.

I like the mouse itself, and after some fiddling I got it configured the way I like it. Just wish it was a bit heavier.

Shit, I really want one of those now. That would be a massive time-saver.

Next time your naga goes out try a G600

I didn't even bother with Synapse. Seems to work perfectly without it.

I nearly got one of these to play swtor. Then I realised it would effectively put a 75% mark up on the price of a whole year of swtor and I hope I'm bored of it by then anyway.
