There are more customisation options that you can shake a stick at. With five profiles built in, the first one is dedicated for Shattered Horizons and allows DPI adjustments and little else. The Motion Sensitivity slider actually changes the mouse speed within Windows separately to the DPI. Although you can adjust mouse-polling and the button response time, why you'd want them to be anything other than as responsive as possible is a mystery. Still the option is there.

Colours are part of the 'CM Storm Octoshade', although for the purposes of this nomenclature we have to accept 'off' as a shade, which I'm not convinced it is. One of the most outstanding features of the old Sentinel was the ability to upload a logo of your choosing, and that option remains in the Z3RO-G. Although it's rendered wholly pointless as the Shattered Horizons logo takes over the display within about a second of you changing the DPI and so you only ever see your logo when switching DPI, which you only tend to do during gameplay.

As you'd expect each profile has a raft of customisation options available where you can set each button to be a single button, a combination press, or run one of the macros you have recorded.

Obviously it would be impossible to cover all the potential script and macro options, suffice to say that if you can record it, you can assign it.

Thankfully the software has an update button, and one of the new features on the very latest version of the Z3RO-G control software has added a checkbox to remove the incredibly annoying Shattered Horizons full-screen logo, so the OLED reverts to its Sentinel Advance behaviour, permanently displaying your current DPI setting and logo of choice.
