  1. Added "Duplicate" button to output list in Expert mode. This will create a copy of the output immediately below the original.

  1. OS shortcuts that were previously only in the Desktop Profile's action library are now available to all profiles.
  2. Added a Mouse Movement gesture template action, so gestures can now be created and edited in Simple Mode.
  3. Resolved issue where profiles duplicated in Expert mode would remain partially linked. Causing some changes in either profile to effect the other.
  4. Resolved issue where "Repeat From" outputs "Times" value would reset to zero whenever the output list containing it was viewed.
  5. Resolved issue where mappings pasted in expert mode wouldn't be saved, or would cut child mappings from source when "Merge" option was selected.

UI Improvements & Fixes:

  • Vibration feedback can now be added to deep click, mouse movement and tilt/pivot inputs in Simple Mode (Z Only).

  • Add labels for all nested inputs types in Simple Mode, and icons for mouse movement inputs.

  • The Control Panel can now launch directly into Expert Mode if it was in use when the app was last running.
  • Enabled UI scaling based on Windows display settings. So the UI will now be legible even on small high-res displays when Windows scaling is used.
  • Initial support for UI themes based on connected mouse.
  • Active profile displayed in UI now updates when profile is switched manually via mouse mapping.
  • Resolved issue where RGB drop-down in Simple Mode could appear in an incorrect location or not at all.
  • Prevent Control Panel from losing focus after manual check for updates.
  • Save option is now enabled when changing a block further outputs flag.


Auto Profile Switching Improvements & Fixes:

  • App detection system can now detect UWP apps (e.g. Windows Store apps).
  • App detection system can now identify apps that run as Admin, without running the Control Panel itself as Admin.
  • Added check for invalid app links created by selecting shortcuts generated by Steam.
  • Prevent false positive app switches due to detected exe being sub-string of linked exe.
    • e.g. "steam.exe" was switching to profile linked to "pathofexile_64steam.exe".
  • Prevent active profile from switching back to default when linked app with focus temporarily stops responding (e.g. while some games are loading).
  • When multiple profiles are linked to one application, the most recently used of those linked profiles is once again correctly saved and restored when switching between apps.
    • This is useful if for example you have separate class profiles for a single game which you switch between manually. As it means if you alt-tab out of the game the correct class profile will be loaded when you come back.


General Improvements & Fixes:

  1. Added an auto backup system for profiles.
    1. Backup of last profiles successfully loaded will be saved to 'Documents/Swiftpoint X1 Settings'
    2. If your profiles are corrupted and the load fails, the backup will automatically be loaded instead.
    3. A copy of the corrupted profiles will also be saved to 'Documents/Swiftpoint X1 Settings' in case any profiles can be recovered manually.
  2. Allow "Set Profile" and "Reset Angles" outputs on profile switch in Expert Mode.
  3. Added support for some previous firmware versions on Swiftpoint Z's.
  4. Firmware update stability improvements.
  5. Improvements to the Control Panels logging system.
  6. Resolved issue where overriding a mapping could sometimes clear other mappings on profile.
  7. Resolved issue where new mappings added in simple mode could seem to disappear.
  8. Resolved issue where a profiles mappings could appear to be duplicated after importing profiles.
  9. Resolved issue where outputs added to inputs which do not have a release (e.g. scroll/mouse movement) could get stuck down. - Feb 2021

  1. Enabled unlimited nesting of Deep Clicks in Expert Mode.
  2. Improved system for resuming firmware updates if a problem occurs during an update.
  3. Disabled firmware update option after firmware update completes to prevent unnecessary re-flashes of firmware.
  4. Corrected UI issue which prevented nesting of Pivot inputs.
  5. Corrected issue with app signature which caused previous version to sometimes be identified as malicious.
  6. Resolved issue with "Scroll Down" and some other outputs not initializing correctly and causing crashes.
  7. Resolved issue where apps with admin privileges could cause active profile to switch unnecessarily. (Apps run as admin can still only be fully detected if Control Panel is also run as admin).
  8. Enabled partial translations of Expert Mode inherited from Swiftpoint Driver (Simplified Chinese, Japanese, and Spanish).
  9. Disabled auto-save on app exit which was occasionally causing config corruption.
  10. Removed prompt to close Swiftpoint Driver on Software update (It is only necessary for firmware updates).
  11. Hide various unusable output actions in Expert Mode when Tracer connected. - Jan 2021

  1. Tracer can now access Expert Mode.
  2. Added Profiles and Action Libraries for:
    • Cyberpunk 2077
    • Destiny 2
    • Team Fortress 2
