Any news? A month and still no updates!? Please fix this!
Currently, Game mode will lock Windows Key and Normal mode will not be able to set macros.
So Lachee you were right. You posted to me after my last post and said that you could change colors of the keyboard while in non-gaming mode without issue, so I looked into it, and you were right. When doing it through the software (which was the only way I knew how to change the colors at first) it would automatically switch to gaming mode, but when doing it through the on-board keyboard shortcut, it changed the color without switching to gaming mode, so I get my red-lighting which was at least enough for me to be able to keep the keyboard.
At the same time I bought the keyboard, I bought a bad #### gaming mouse from Logitech, the G700's which has extra button at the thumb that I can assign to macro keys. Of course it isnt quite the same as having them on my keyboard, but after I programmed it to my liking it did the trick for me, and I kept my TT Sports Keyboard. I actually REALLY like it, I just wish it was possible to use the Windows Key and Macro Keys, I really think they screwed themselves there. I think I noted earlier that I am an IT Administrator. Small to Midsize Businesses who don't want to pay to have an IT staff on 100 percent of the time will outsource the work to companies like mine. So I work with SEVERAL different companies in Las Vegas, and am Constantly asked by novices and enthusiasts alike what is the best hardware. Of course its not always about keyboards, usually its the best processor, or best monitor, best Manufacturer, that sort of thing, but believe it or not Keyboards are one that clients bring up pretty often. Keys are either to hard to press, not spaced to the users liking, or gives them CT.
I would have loved to recommend the keyboard I use, but I can't knowing it has such a MAJOR flaw, and the makers are just ignoring it. I mean what if the person I recommend it to, recommends it to someone else and say that I said it was the best, but then they find out it has such a major flaw, then my judgement starts to come into question, and my reputation in this city is directly tied to my business and bottom line, so I just can't risk it. I only recommend things that I 100 percent believe in, and although I like using this product personally, I can't believe the way we the customers have been treated on this issue...
They keep leading us on in this post, and then when we ask for an update, they say sorry, this is the way things are. Then they promise to look into it again, because enough people have raised the issue, and then a month later Lachee asks again for an update, and then again its Sorry but thats the way things are. Its B.S. I don't care if this is not a major selling Item for TT Sports, if you care about your customers, especially if enough of them ask about the same issue, you take care of them, and TT Sports is just not. So why would I EVER recommend them, or purchase one of their products for my self again??? And its a shame, because it really is a nice product. And I am a person who hates dealing with Logitech, but at least at the end of the day, they usually fix the issue... SMH...
Anyways, I wanted to say thank you to you Lachee, for suggesting that there was a way to make the color switching and Windows Key work at the same time, it made me dig deeper and learn about the keyboard shortcut for changing colors, and thank you to Josh for doing your best to try and get our concerns to your design team who apparently could give 2 sh*ts about the at least 6 different people who have posted in this forum about the same issue. And this isn't the only forum that has mentioned this issue by the way, there is at least 2 others that I found just within this site alone. I guess we don't matter. 1 Love!
