Cursor Behavior (How to adjust the Cursor Speed?)

This slider controls the speed of the cursor: it determines how far the pointer moves on the computer in response to how far you move the mouse. By default, Attraction Effect is selected, but you can modify this setting to your own liking.

To automatically adjust the cursor speed, please select between the following radio buttons:

  1. Slow/Attract (Attraction Effect, Deceleration Sensation): Cursor will move slower if Pixel of interest are detected.
  2. Normal (Normal Effect, No sensation): Cursor speed is reseted to default value (10).
  3. Fast/Repel (Repulsion Effect, Acceleration Sensation): Cursor will move faster if Pixel of interest are detected.

Helpful Tips:

- For Novint Falcon owners, you can press Top Button to switch between primary effects (Attraction, Normal or Repulsion). See Novint Falcon Options for more information.

- If you wish to optimize the advanced sliders so that the sensations match the image, proceed to the Modify Speed Settings and Motion Settings page in the troubleshooting section.

Hyperlink Detection (HyperTouch) with Tactile Alerts

For the best haptic feedback, we recommend the SteelSeries Rival 500/700 Gaming Mouse

Cursor Detector

Augmented Operating System notification service via cursor State

"Enable/Disable HyperTouch" File > Pixel Detection >> HyperLink Detection for browsers

"Customize Cursor Detector" choose the Cursor you want to detect:

"Standard mouse pointers" will find only default windows cursors. Feel all the Desktop.

"HyperLink/custom mouse icon" is recommended. It enables you to feel hyperlinks in any browser (Chrome) and special cursors in any application (Photoshop).

"Windows borders" includes: Vertical, Horizontal, Diagonale Left and Diagonale Right. it is really useful to Move and Resize any window.

"Text Mouse Pointer" allows you to feel text input fields, in search box, in any browser and any app.

"Busy/Unavailable/Working Mouse pointers" are not recommended. Haptic Feedback may slow down during process activity.

"XP mode" is never enabled. It is only checked for backward compatibility purposes. It detects cursor state on different Operating Systems (Windows XP, Vista, 7 ,8, 10). An invisible window stay on top to make a list of available cursors.

"Collision detection for Virtual Reality" is enabled by default. Even if the cursor become invisible, the pixel detection is still functionning for VR, Video Games and Media Player.


Multiple Mice and individual settings with EitherMouse (Third party software)

Instantly changes settings when any mouse is used (swap buttons, mirror cursor, adjust speeds and more...)

Leave multiple mice on a pc and automatically swap buttons on each mouse. Have a left-handed and a right-handed mouse always connected and ready to use.

Match speeds across different mice, ie touchpad and mouse with different speeds. Accommodate left and right handed users easily on multi-user or public workstations.

Helps prevent RSI/injury issues by allowing seemless switching between hands. Quickly change mouse settings from system tray if only one mouse is used


X-Mouse Button Control (Third party software)

XMouse Button Control (XMBC) allows you to create application and window specific profiles. This in turn, allows you to re-configure your mouse behaviour for individual applications or windows. For each profile you can also configure up to 5 'layers' of different button configurations which you can switch between using hot-keys or mouse buttons.

By default, profiles are automatically activated as the mouse moves over the defined window or application. This has many uses, for example:

. Changing the behaviour of the mouse over certain windows, such as making the mouse wheel change volume when hovering over the system tray or you-tube video.

. In games which do not natively support the extended, 4th and 5th mouse buttons, you can map keys to each button.
