Wootility v3.6 update notes

Hi, this is a brand new stable release with major improvements to joystick input, gamepad settings and troubleshooting, and input speed. This release is packed with improvements and bug fixes. We plan this to be the last major pre-Lekker release.

Big changes

Gamepad Tester

You can now test your Gamepad Mappings and Settings directly in Wootility! This also serves as a helpful troubleshooting tool to ensure that everything is working as it should.

The input preview instantly shows the changes you've made to the curve. It also shows you in which Active slot the keyboard is in. When it's not in Active slot 1, it'll often not work in games, this was the number 1 setup issue most people encountered.

New and improved Analog Curve behaviour

The Analog curve now behaves correctly as a circle (see here for more details), many thanks to Rocky_4 (DEU), CrossVs | DarrenVs and Erstadan for their help on this. These changes make it possible to have much better control over the direction that you're moving in or consistent speed moving diagonally.

Additionally, changes you make to the Analog curve are immediately reflected on your keyboard so you can try them out straight away! When you're done just make sure to click "Save to keyboard" to get it stored on-board.

There is now the option to drag out the first and last points of the curve to create a deadzone at the beginning or end of your press. You can use this to get more power in creating curves which get you the max output sooner (i.e. better choice of analog actuation point).

Input latency drastically decreased

Your keyboard is now faster than ever. Digital and analog profiles now run more than 50% faster than before thanks to more efficient code compiling and smarter logic. This is huge for Analog/Digital profiles and controller input that now runs at 4ms. Tachyon mode still runs at <1ms.

Improved Gamepad mode selection

Don't even use the Gamepad settings on the keyboard? Now you can disable it all-together to prevent any potential interference with your games in the Wootility settings. We have also changed the behavior to only use 1 gamepad interface at a time to prevent potential issues.

Disable NKRO

You can also now access the NKRO Disable setting (which before was secretly hidden in Korean language). You don't need to disable NKRO unless you want to access older motherboard models or use the keyboard on your Playstation 4.

New Analog Settings

These can be found under the General tab

Gamepad Mapping Override This allows you to disable all the keys that you have Gamepad mappings bound to. You'll no longer need to use up your DKS bindings to disable keys! Fortnite Strafing This is a special option for Fortnite that changes the diagonal Joystick input angle to easily achieve controller strafe or "double movement".
