    It may just be me but I think that you should be able to reduce or increase the speed of the thumb stick on the Orbweaver Chroma.

    I say this because of me being disabled I cannot move the thumb stick slowly on the games I play which means that I am constantly losing and getting frustrated.

    Before I became disabled I used to play online games and was good at games but since becoming disabled I find it hard to use both arms/hands an the same time like you would using the keyboard and mouse thats why I purchased the Orbweaver Chroma.

    Is there anyway Razer could create the software to combat this problem. I would like to hear how many other people have the same or similar problems.

    Maybe you can lower the sensitivity in game?

    I've tried lowering the sensitivity in game but it only affects the mouse an not the thumb stick on the Orbweaver Chroma but thanks Predator5 for the suggestion.

    I think the biggest issue with the thumbstick being used in the way you need it, is that the thumbstick is not your traditional thumbstick. It's more like a directional switch. There's an actuation point, leaving me to believe that it's either on or off, just like using a mechanical keyboard key and WASD.

    What you would need is a kind of pad similar to the Orbweaver / Tartarus, but with a thumbstick like on the Wildcat, or any console controller.

    I don't think it would be profitable for Razer to have a special controller like that, because the market demand would be very low, as the ratio of people who would need them to people who don't would be very much in favor of people who don't.

    However, I think it would be awesome if @Min-Liang Tan decided to make Razer a company for ALL gamers, even those with disabilites, and looked into making a controller that would work for you and others with similar needs. After all, they did just do a competition where they made custom mousepads for 11 people. Making an Orbweaver or Tartarus with an actual thumbstick, that could be useable by hundreds or thousands of gamers, can't be out of the question.

    And welcome to Razer Insider, @MetalMicky025JD!

    That's what I thought.
