I am leaning towards that end but I am not 100% sure as I don't know the mouse that well... more to come

Hmmm, I know I pushed the Profile button a couple of times but did not know what to do from there until now that you mentioned "Colored Profiles"... I'll try that when I get home and post back.

This is one of the reasons why I changed from my trusty G7. Well, that and the fact that I end up paying $20 bucks for it

Still, I am not able to get used to the ergonomics of the mouse and I feel that my G7 was a lot more comfortable.

Sorry, I don't use xfire nor game Online, I more of a lone wolf Single FPS player my self... I guess I suck to much at online gaming or can't be bothered with all the time waiting to respawn, server errors or downtimes, firewall blocks, port forwarding, etc, etc.

Perhaps one of this days I will sucumb to it as PC FPS games are getting more arcade-ish with time since Consoles are taking over and all we get is half-made ports.

OK, let me try this again, I think that it definately FAILED to automatically changed profiles when the game initialized. Now, being said that, Vegas 2 is a poorly & unoptimized console port to PC game so I can't say, with 100% certainty, that it is the mouse's fault... all I know is, I am having no luck.

OK, I did pushed the Profile button on the back of the mouse, went to the dpi button, pushed it forward/backward to no avail... does that mean the mouse is defective? Is there any other way to test this out?

General Profile = Red (90% of my usage)
Gaming Profile = Green (have really not touched this as not all the game I play the same or allow for keybinding, so I left at default)
Vega 2 Profile = Blue

Last thing I need is waste time and money sending this back for them to return it with a note that says... Stupid Hurts!

OK, after even more testing today, I can now say with 100% certainty that the mouse DOES NOT change profiles AUTOMATICALLY when the game starts.

I was able to change profiles MANUALLY once I was inside the game but that did not do a damn thing.

I, literally, had to alt+tab out, get into set point and change the profile to game for it to work.

I don't believe I am doing this wrong because I had the G7 and even though the setpoint for it is different, the logic behind it must be the same, right?

What I did is set two profiles, one for gaming and one for general usage. While you are editing each profile, change the color of the profile under the basics heading. I use red for general and blue for gaming

Make sure to go to Profile Manager and set it to "Switch Profiles myself using mouse buttons" and then add each profile to the mouse on board memory.

Flip the mouse over, push and hold down the switch profile button and push the left/right DPI arrow button on top of the mouse. If you have successfully set different colors to each profile, you will see the mouse DPI light indicators change colors.

Feel free to contact me on Xfire, Xfire - Gaming Simplified if you need some additional input. My username is erratikone. Hope this helps!

yES, THAT'S HOW i HAVE IT, oops sorry... REd is General, Green is Gaming (not used much) and Blue is for Vegas 2 game.

Only thing left to try is the "Switch Profiles myself using mouse buttons" as I did try manually changing while in game but nothing happened as explained above.

Xfire? hmmm, that's going to be tough as I don't belong to it and never go there but, perhaps with Modern Warfare 2 I'll take a stab at Online Gaming.
