Software / Driver
Roccat Kova[+] can be used without the installation of additional drivers.
Nevertheless it's highly recommended that one installs the software in order to
gain access to this products full functionality. Once you've installed software
and drivers it is possible to program each button. There also is the option to
to use the so called "easy-shift" button. As soon as you press it you get access
to a second set funcitons which can be programmed to the button too. What also
belongs to every good gaming mouse is the possibility to save macros. Of course
Roccat has thought of this and offers this feature with the Kova[+].
The driver also comes with a macro manager. Using it one
can define small scripts which can be programed to the different mouse buttons.
If you want to change the DPI resolution Roccat offers with the Kova[+] four
different presents: 400 DPI, 800 DPI, 1600 DPI and 3200 DPI. Low-sense as well
as high-sense gamers should be ok with this but it would have been nice if there
was the possibility to adjust this setting exact on one DPI. If you have the
software installed you can activate the sexy women sound which tells you for
example your DPI setting.
Another feature that comes with the Kova[+] are the integrated LEDs which can
switch colors. Furthermore one can also alter the lighting effects. We
especially liked the "breathing" effect. Generally we can say that it is
absolutely possible to configure the mouse individually.
