Quick Gaming Profile for the Wooting 60HE
The Base Profile
The reason I started with Ali’s profile (16935f878f2a3f6ef42e54a0eddaae06c7cf) is because I like the fact that he set up advanced keys for arrow key functionality – on my previous keyboard (DZ60 PCB) I had arrow keys and it is too painful parting ways with that commodity.
He also had a custom actuation point and Rapid Trigger already enabled making his profile entirely usable from the get-go. Since I use my keyboard differently and have slightly different preferences, I tuned the profile further to suit my needs better.
The first change besides the RGB mode I have made was to enable Tachyon mode for latency closer to 1ms while gaming – this might not significantly impact your performance in-game but it is good to know you are getting every bit of advantage you can (coiled cables and other mods can affect the performance of the analog switches and the Rapid Trigger functionality).
From there I went on to set the main actuation point for the entire board to 1.0mm and Rapid Trigger at 0.15mm. The next step is the more personal one where I have selected the keys I want to be able to spam easily if needed and set them to 0.5mm. The keys I selected are important keys like ability keys, crouch, jump, and movement keys so I can be as hard as possible to hit while strafing.
Then I selected the other keys like Escape, Tab, and the Windows key and set their actuation point at either 2.5mm or 4.0mm depending on how prone I am to fat-fingering and pressing them on accident.
As you can see, these adjustments mostly happened on the left side of the keyboard, where most of the keys you use in games are located. The right side is mostly unaffected and stays at the default 1.0 mm actuation point. Since I have the ISO version of the keyboard I have also remapped the button next to my left Shift to Del for quick deleting files without having to use the Fn key.
If you are interested in the changes I have made you can try my profile by importing it with the following code: 36c1557a98e7d274af3e9876e3b97ae35414
If you want a quick gaming profile for your Wooting 60HE, you can start with a base profile (optimum: 16935f878f2a3f6ef42e54a0eddaae06c7cf) and tune it, or use the profile I tuned for myself (36c1557a98e7d274af3e9876e3b97ae35414) and work from there! Either of these profiles will give you a solid base to work from and make it a bit easier to get to gaming quickly.
Micro-Adjusting the Timer Resolution – Automating the Process
I have already talked about Amit’s discovery of increased precision while micro-adjusting your timer resolution in a previous article. The process of finding the value at which you have the best precision is a pretty tedious manual task in which you would have to run a benchmark and change the values of the timer resolution […]
WebCord – Hardened Discord for Privacy
There are different ways in which you can improve your Discord experience – strip it, mod it, or use a different client. While modding and using a different client specifically is against the rules, the fact that people are still interested in such options means that there is something wrong with Discord at a fundamental […]
Avoiding Manifest V3 – Escaping the Ad-Pocalypse
While Manifest V3 has not been implemented yet by Google, the far-reaching implications of ad blockers being unable to function properly on any Chromium browser should already put the usability of Chrome/Chromium-based browsers under a question mark. I have been exploring what browsers would fit my needs as a gamer, and whenever I thought I […]
Win32PrioritySeparation – Understanding How the Values Impact Your Performance
Changing your Win32PrioritySeparation value in the registry has become a staple in the optimization process of your PC, but unfortunately, a lot of people editing their values rely on guesswork or internet myths. Using this or that value just because someone in a Reddit thread mentioned it is rather counterproductive so I took a deeper […]
DLSS for Competitive Gamers on 1080P
DLSS and other upsampling algorithms have become very popular lately due to games lacking proper optimizations and needing other ways of increasing performance without sacrificing visual quality completely. However DLSS, just like the other super sampling options, is usually associated with casual gaming and not so much with competitive settings with the lowest options. Is […]
The Finals – Setting Accurate Sensitivity, ADS, and FOV Values
While The Finals is fun to play, the game lacks a proper way of setting your desired values for sensitivity, ADS, and FOV. The sliders in the game give you an approximate value, meaning that if you have a preferred sensitivity (ex: 35cm) in most cases you will not be able to play it. The […]
