Logitech has released a new version of the GamePanel Software for the G11, G13, G15 and G19 gamer keyboards. The software has arrived at version 3.02.173 and is available for download for the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows XP and Windows Vista. Version 3.02.173 includes improvements for SideShow and Applets support. Furthermore, adjustments have been made for the benefit of the ‘software development kit’ and an LCD Applet Finder has been added. The full release notes look like this:
LUA Scripting changes:
- Scripting now works properly on the G13.
- Added an additional LUA function; “SetMKeyState”.
- G-Key and M-key events can now distinguish between G-series keyboards and the G13.
- The “OutputLCDMessage” function now correctly interprets the delay in seconds.
G-series Key Profiler Changes:
- Added an additional function macro to assign G-keys to M1, M2 or M3.
- Fixed critical section leak in the “CLCDConnection” class
- The G-series LCD (color and monochrome) is now supported as a Microsoft SideShow device on Windows Vista.
- Support for Microsoft Sideshow has been re-enabled for 64-bit Windows Vista.
- The volume display should now show on the LCD when changing volume.
- Should work with the 3.1 patch of World of Warcraft.
- Introducing the LCD Applet Finder for easier applet navigation.
- There is currently no analog joystick support for the G13 device.
- If you change a M state (M1>M2, M3>M1, etc) while a macro is being executed or a key is being pressed down, the assignment for that key will halt (As we can’t have the event/keypress from , say, M1 carry over when you switch to M2). If you release the key and press it back down, it will work just fine with the new M set. This has always been the function of the software, but now with the ability to change M sets via the G keys, we believe people might see this behavior more often.
