How come my side buttons don't work in L4D? I got them programmed to go back and forward (just like my g5), and the two sides still don't work.

Any ideas?

Is setpoint installed and up to date?

Yes it is. I installed it when I got the new mouse. Do you think this has anything to do with my 64bit o/s?

Do you have the check box checked where it says "Game Detection" and then the other box checked that says "Keep keypress button assignments"?

I'll check when I get home. What should I do if it is like this?

If it is like that then leave it alone. It just detects when you are playing a game and it leaves your buttons assigned like you had it programmed. If it is unchecked it loses your button assignments in games.

I had this same issue with those buttons.

I made sure i was using the exact G9 software setpoint not the other ones for all the other mice and i used a general settings for back and forth on the side buttons with no custom profile needed so all games or apps use the setting i pick as default like the dpi on this thing which is so awesome .

Ok...I checked to see if I could find "Game Detection, and I did not see that option anywhere in the SetPoint application. What am I missing?

When I get back home from work, I will uninstall and reinstall the software.

I couldn't figure out why the G9 has its own version of the setpoint but you should be good.

More macro support and better cusomized features too with the 5.0 one.

This is still not working. I've uninstalled the Logitech drivers and reinstalled them, and I'm still not able to use the side buttons.

make sure your HD device is updted in device manager and av software isn't blocking it from udating too but it should work with the G9 software on logitech.

WOrks good for me and i can even change colors on the mouse itself too and play witht eh dpi settings.

good luck and hope you get it working so you can kick some ass in gaming sahw.

Are they set to Generic button or specificly back and forward?
I think mine are set to generic by default and that picks them up as mouse4 and mouse5 (or something) in L4D, TF2 etc.. well every game I can think of that I tried it with. (and still work as Back and Forward in other programs)

if all else fails you can make a profile that is activated when a certain .exe file launches.
Ive done this for a program called MotionBuilder, and set the buttons to F5 and F6 which I use often there, but cant bind to mouse buttons in the program.
It then reverts back to the default profile when Im not in the program, I even stored that profile in the mouse aswell.

Glad you got it working shaw.

Thats the default and when you customize those you can point to the option you desire for the side buttons.
