Hi there.
I enjoy playing FPS games from time to time, and My problem is with a mouse.
The mouse I have is a Logitech mx700. It has 5 extra buttons which I have assigned to different keys on a keyboard.
Now... I always use a thumb key to "crouch" and one of the other index finger buttons to a "granade"
And therein lies a problem, I can't throw a "granade" while holding a "crouch". It just won't accept two buttons hit at the same time, except for two "main" buttons 0 and 1. That is I can shoot while holding a "crouch".


Soooo... Is there anyway around it? I've tried to find an answer everywere, but nobody seems to ever asked about it, so I figured that maybe I just don't know about something.

hmmm not sure, I use a logitech mouse as well though its much simpler I dont like a lot of buttons on my mouse im always hitting them on accident I assign my buttons to the keyboard to crouch and stuff like that. first thing that comes to mind is the driver, do you have the latest? im not talking about the one on CD that came with it, get online to logitechs website and download the latest. if you do have the latest, try falling back to an old driver. the other possibility is a short inside of it, or it simply wasnt designed to be able to process that much at once.

First of all... thanks for replying...
As for drivers, yes, I do have the latest, I usually do keep checking for driver updates. As for a short in the mouse... Nope, this has definetely something to do with software since I also have MX310 ps/2 with a cord and it has same issue. I just don't get why would they design it like that.
Now I wonder if maybe the problem IS with a driver, since both of my mice use the same driver version. BTW it is ver.9.79.025

Hey, could you do me a small favor. Since you too have a logitech. Could you quickly assign a "shift" to one of your buttons and a letter "a" for a second, then test it in a notepad if you can type an "A" (uppercase) using those two buttons. Check your driver version just to confirm it.
I'd appreciate it... thanks in advance.

As a matter of fact... could someone perform the same test with some other manufacturers mouse. I just want to find out if this is an exclusively logitech issue.

sry havent been on the boards in a bit, I could try that but I doubt it would, my mouse is very simple, the two primary buttons all mice have, a 4 way scroll bar and forward back buttons, all of which work fine. but when I get on my computer tomorrow Ill play with it to see if it will repeat the problem, but my money is on if its a driver issue its specific with ur particular model of mouse.
