The software provided for the Theron gives us control over the button configuration, profiles, and illumination and performance settings. The Theron supports up to five onboard profiles, which can be switched to using the software or via the manual button on the base of the mouse.
The Theron also has a feature called Battle mode. When we switch the mouse to Battle mode the illumination effects are impacted by our clicking frequency. In real time strategy games, especially StarCraft 2, actions per minute or APM are king. The best professional players have incredible APM figures, and in Battle mode we can see how our APM stands up by seeing how quickly the illumination changes.
Outside of Battle mode we can change the illumination setting through the software panel. We can select from seven available colours, which change all the colours on the mouse.
The performance configurations allow us to set the DPI levels. There are four pre-set levels we can configure, which can be set anywhere from 100 to 5600 DPI. We are also able to specify the double click speed, cursor speed and scroll speed. Finally we can set the polling rate from the three available, either 125Hz, 500Hz or 1000Hz.
Finally we have a macro configuration tool. The macro tool allows us to record our own macros, with the standard options we would expect such as adjusting the time delay or selecting from a list of standard commands. We can also load macros created by other people.
