Old Beta Drivers? Firmware?

Post by PsychotropicDog » Sun Oct 01, 2017 6:44 am

I glanced at the blurbs for the new drivers and somehow saw a functioning (as I would like it) driver with customization options. You know, an improvement on the old beta drivers I'd been using.
3DxWare64SPP_v10-0-11r1165

This was perfectly functional for creating all kinds of profiles.

So no, there's nothing in the new drivers other than "here's the programs that work, otherwise...

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=20812

...which of course fails at the recognize the running app stage, either by showing it on the 3D Mouse Home settings or in the system tray.

Ok I'll try an old config because that text is giving me a headache. Oh that worked, until I rebooted. Then it didn't.

Trying to go back to the old driver, it does not detect the device even though it's listed in the Device Manager, and the LED ring only lights up for small periods of time. And of course it does not work.

Was there a firmware update that caused this? If so is there any way to undo this?

My mistake, it was Beta 15 that was the best:
3DxWare64SPP_v10-0-16r1544.exe
That worked well. And it is working well enough now. It does involve some farting around with the config files but it was not too painful.
Not sure where anyone would find this now.
