Tt eSPORTS Ventus Z: Software

The Ventus Z gaming software is very straight forward and simple to use. Upon opening the software, you may have to update the firmware to the mouse. Once updated, you can customize the button assignments, lighting effects, and sensor performance and save them to the five separate profiles. Profiles can also be renamed, edited, imported, and exported.

The Key Assignment menu can reassign mouse functions. A new window should come up asking which function you would like to assign to the button. You may assign a single key, a mouse function, or a keyboard function. This gives lots of flexibility to customize on how you want the mouse to function.

In the Performance window, you can assign up to four DPI levels if you choose to. You may turn the sensor on or off, adjust lift-off distance, angle snapping, report rate, and button response. You have a minimum DPI of 100 and a maximum of 11000 and can adjust it in increments of 100. You can adjust the DPI of the sniper button in the Key Assignment window when assigning any button to temporary. Instead of just having three options for lift-off distance, low, medium, or high, you can almost fine tune lift-off distance to anywhere between low and high.

There are a few lighting effects to choose from in the Light Option window. You can set the LED’s to static color, pulse, or spectrum; each having their own brightness and speediness controls. The scroll wheel and the rear dragon logo are synced together, so they cannot have their own different colors. The onboard memory can save the lighting effects and annimations. This prevents having to have the software open all the time

The Macro Setting window lets you record macro functions. Here you can record mouse and keyboard keystrokes as well as insert and delete recorded keys. Macros can be imported and exported and can be assigned to any of the 10 buttons on the mouse. With five separate profiles, the Ventus Z may store up to 50 different macros with its 256K onboard memory and an ARM based 32-bit microcontroller.
