Windows 7: cyborg 9 second scroll wheel battlefield 3

HI guys,

This is far from ideal but achieved what I wanted.

if you just assign the thumb wheel to a keystroke, it doesn't register properly. I reckon due to a wheel click not having an Key Down and Key Up state the way a keyboard button does, just a guess, but the following deffo works. No idea if there is an easier way.

You need to set it as an advanced command. in the 'Press' section, assign a random key that you aren't otherwise using in the game. I used ',' (without the quotes, a comma basically) then in the release section, have the actual key or keys you wish to trigger. In my case this as a number 3. I repeated the process for the anti clockwise setting, this time using '.' (full stop) and 4. So the thumb wheel now selects 2 different weapons in the shooters I play.

What this seems to be doing is to trigger a full up and down of the 3 button, when it sense the Up stroke of the , key as triggered by the wheel. My guess is the thumb wheel only sends the Up part of the keypress which is enough for text entry, but not enough for the games I play.

The thumbwheel now works perfectly, every time. In fact, you have to be a little careful as it's very easy to move it 2 clicks accidentally.

Let me know if you don't follow.

Sorry if I am a little dense but I don't understand the press section nor the release section.

In the window for the wheel there is a "OK button", a "Cancel Button" and a "mouse record button". Do you use the mouse record button?

Thanks, Harry

So I have this problem on my steam games where when I shoot the cursor automatically looks down or goes to a certain area.
