Are there any plans to add a "per application" feature for profiling/programming in the ST software for the R.A.T.?

I have been using Microsoft mice for a while now and one of the things that I like about the MS mouse drivers/software was the ability to program the buttons based on what application is opened and is active/in focus.

I switched to the RAT for ergonomic reasons mostly. (The MS mice I've used, while quite functionally featured, weren't exactly ergonomically friendly.) I find the lack of being able to switch functionality on the fly between the various programs I use on a daily basis something of a nuisance. It's minor, but I had grown accustomed to that functionality/flexibility in/from my previous mice.

@David Nowak - make sure you're running the latest version of the drivers for your graphics card.  We've seen a couple of ATI owners running older drivers that had the same issue as you.

@Stahn Aileron - it's something that we'd love to do and we'll continue to look into it.

I'm having the same problem as David Nowak with the Programming tab being blank, and I'm using a nVidia GTS250 card with the latest drivers.

Any solution on this would be very much appreciated.

I had the same problem (white program tab page)as Dawid Nowak. However if I switch to English display language in windows instead of Swedish I am able to access programming tab. I have a English version of windows 7 and I have .net framework 4.0 installed. Read somewhere that this problem had to do with using wrong version of .net framework but its the same with both 3.5 and 4.0 version of .net framework.

Hopefully Saitek support will read this so they can figure it out.

One thing I'd love to be able to do is bind leaning left and right to the scroll wheel, so I can turn it right to lean, and then bring it back a notch to go back upright.

I'm discussing it with a friend who's just got one who says that's not possible.

Could you make it possible please!  I've never managed to adjust my keybindings to having lean in games, so I've just done without, but it's starting to get me killed in Red Orchestra and such.

We've discovered the problem behind the blank programming screen - it seems some language versions of Windows are suffering from this (you'll note that all of you on this page reporting this are from the Nordics) so we're issuing an updated version of the software.  You should see a new post here on the Blog later today detailing this.

I am having problems with my rat 7 . I downloaded some of the game profiles to run with it. I'm working on it for probably five or six hours trying to get it to work properly. I can get all the buttons programmed, except for the thumb scroll. I cannot get it to work on any game. When I do the test on the CYBORG programming all the buttons work correctly including the thumb scroll, but it seems as soon as I put it into the game. The thumb scroll does not work. I am at a complete loss and get everything else working except for the thumb scroll. If any of you have any suggestions I would greatly appreciate it

PS I downloaded all of the game profiles, the ones that I got on your site. And I have them all working again for the games they do have still can't get him scroll working in game, would appreciate any feedback very frustrated that you.

Probably best you contact support directly but I can say that if the test screen is showing those scroll functions working correctly then there's no reason that they shouldn't work in-game.

The COD profile should be back in there now - check it again.

As for that crash error, the software does require that you're running .Net Framework 3.5 updated to SP1.  If you're the guy I was talking to on email I sent you something else to try but you didn't get back to me to say whether it worked.  That suggestion was to try the dynamic download option here:


Just click the blue Download button and see if that then gets it updated to SP1.

How to create a switch windows command in profile editor that looklike press alt+tab
then release tab, hold alt and then cycle through every windows by press tab repeatedly?

Yut123 United States | Reply

3/17/2011 1:14:13 PM #

You would need to use the Advanced Command Editor for this.  Click in the Press row and press Alt and Tab together.  Right click and delete the release of the Alt key.

Now go to the Repeat row and press Tab.

Finally make sure there is a release of the Alt key and you should then find that it does what you want.

richard United Kingdom | Reply

3/18/2011 6:08:10 PM #


Alt(down) + Tab(down) + Tab(up)
Tab(down) + Tab(up)

However, it cycle through each windows very fast
then it difficult to select the right windows.

Right now, still working on timer to slowdown the Tab process.

You can't set the polling rate because it adjusts dynamically depending on how quickly you move the R.A.T..

Would it be possible to request a rapid fire profile for the RAT mice series? I play games like UrbanTerror, Arma II, and CoD MW2, and am finding the software hard to deal with. I use a latched macro, with 7 mouseclicks. This is recognized in the 'test' area of the software, but I am unable to make this work in-game. Thank you very much in advance for your help, and I am loving my R.A.T 3, the best mouse I have ever owned. Harry.

Hi everyone,

I recently got this mouse and (of course) instantly began trying as many different ways as I could think of to configure it.

After loads of tinkering I had it set up to a point I was happy with and saved the profile.
Began gaming and worked on in-game sensitivity tweaking and the like.

As with every new bit of hardware/software, something turned up that I hadn't factored in and I tried to jump back into the profile editor.

You guessed it... Splash>crash!

I rebooted, reinstalled software/drivers, checked on-line (found this thread), tried the MS.NET link. Nothing helped.

Then I tried something that I thought would do nothing: Switch out of the profile I was using.
I had saved the profile separately to the default. This actually stopped the crashes.

Don't know if it will help everyone with this problem. If it works for you, let people here know?

Good luck!

Profiles and modes are two separate things.  You can have three modes within a profile and the intention wasn't so much for people to assign different game profiles to each mode.  However, there's nothing stopping you from doing that as such - you just need to set up each games commands in each mode (so, have commands for Rage in mode 1, commands for Battlefield 3 in Mode 2 and commands for Modern Warfare 3 in mode 3, for example).  Save that profile and then when you load it you just need to hit the mode button to switch between each game mode.

Adam Poland | Reply

10/17/2011 11:59:59 AM #

You can program a button to provide three clicks - just create a new Advance Command when you assign (click the arrow at top right of the programming cell and choose New Advanced Command), click the Mouse Record button then click three times in the Press Row.  Turn off mouse record, right click the mouse clicks in there, click Quantize Time and then set it to 0.00 and click OK.

Save the command, load the profile and it should do that for you.

I ordered a 129,- euro Razer Mamba for my brand-new iMac 27 a few weeks ago, but the Razer Mac drivers are even worse than any standard driver in OS-X. Then the quality of the mice is bad, very bad, so is the capacity of the battery.

I returned the Razer Mamba and bought the R.A.T 9 instead.

And wow: it's working great right away, I couldn't believe it!
Then you get so much more for less money: 2 batteries, a customisable mouse with several extra parts etc...
After the install of the drivers & software, I couldn't be happier to see the results: this is really a great product.

Even if the mice has the look of a Transformer, I'm in love with it!

In that case it might actually be emitting the mouse clicks too quickly!  Try putting a delay on the second and third mouse clicks of 0.2 of a second and see if it plays them then.  If not then try increasing it slightly.
