DPI scaling stuck after using sniper mode

Recommended Posts

I have the Nightsword RGB mouse, and frequently use the sniper button on it to reduce my DPI. However, recently I have noticed that the DPI scaling is getting stuck after releasing the button. This does not seem to be a problem with the physical button on the mouse, as it releases with no issue. This leads me to believe it is a problem somewhere within iCUE itself.


Sometimes the issue results in the sniper mode not releasing until a second or so after I release the button, sometimes it gets stuck until I hit the button again or move my mouse around, and sometimes it just turns on by itself. Any help fixing this would be appreciated.

I have the excact same problem but with an m65 mouse. Only thing I haven't tried is getting an earlier ICUE build.

Current ICUE version: V4.19.191

I'll give an update if it worked.

EDIT:Not able to find a version earlier, all give me this version.

same thing.  but I did notice something.  I have a m65 mouse.  if I exit the software completely and go with my mouse onboard memory, then the sniper button works like it should.  However, with the m65 mouse, not sure of others or older but the new m65 rgb ultra, it has a tilt function as well.  and so, when I exit the program, that function then does not work.  I also noticed though that for me games seem to get a bit laggy as well when I use the sniper button if the software is running.  does not have to be open, just running.  but again, if I exit the software, everything is fine other than the tilt function.  


also, to add, when I first used the mouse, I had an older Icue verion v3 something and it would not even find my mouse.  kept saying plug in device.  so had to download the v4 version.

The thread below is the current issue and recently introduced. The original poster was affected by a different problem that was later corrected. Fortunately this one is slightly more manageable and a simple re-click of the sniper button will release the DPI shift and it only enters that state after an extended hold. The earlier bug was much more intrusive.
