are the 6 buttons actually recognized by the pc alone without xim3?
Not running anything... just normal PC use... I've set a cut & paste macros to the side buttons, so I know the side buttons work. It's only when I game that I'm unable to bind to the side keys. I've tried remapping the top buttons to the side buttons, no luck. I've tried the XIM bridge and still no luck.
To verify, if you plug your Hex into another machine without the Razer software installed, do those buttons still perform those extra functions?
No they do not. I must first install Razer's Synapse 2.0 on each computer to perform those extra funtions. The Naga Hex has no on board memory so I have to use the Synapse 2.0 cloud.Are there any other options to get the Naga Hex to work?
Ok, that makes sense. The only options are we write a custom driver for this specific mouse for XIM3, or, someone out there writes a special app using the XIM3 SDK and targets that mouse specifically.
