Blackweb Gaming Mouse Driver

UPDATE August 10th, 2017 Much thanks to Jared Trotter for submitting the Blackweb BWA17 drivers. Download links updated below.

UPDATE June 11, 2017

This should help clarify things for people who have issues with this driver for their mouse and perhaps could help solve future issues for people down the road if they want to contribute to hosting their mouse driver.

While I initially thought there was only one model of a Blackweb gaming mouse it's been brought to my attention though comments (here and on youtube), discord, and emails that people can't get this to work. Apparently Walmart has several models (figures) of this mouse and some (if not all of them lol) use a different drive. Additionally, turns out the particular gaming mouse my brother got was one like this, not the older BWG66 model, so I cannot say if the BWG66 will work or not with this driver.

Anyhow if you have a different model and this driver does not work, but you have the ability to upload the particular driver for your model from the CD you got, along with a link or description (or a walmart store link) of the particular model you have please email it to me at [email protected] and we can talk about hosting it here for others with a similar model (if you're trustworthy of course ;) ) Screenshot of the walmart store link I provided above if they decide to remove it down the road: https://jseb.ca/blackwebmousepage.png

The one we have essentially has two buttons on the side in addition to the standard mouse buttons along with a "DPI" button that also changes colours with the mouse DPI. It has a black top, all one piece on the top (unlike the pictures I saw in the original BWG66 post I linked).

So I hate optical drives, and in both the PC I built for myself and the one my brother uses doesn't even have one inside it. Seriously, I want optical discs to just die.

But recently for my brothers birthday he got a "Blackweb Gaming Mouse", it has 5 buttons not counting the DPI button and is supposedly RGB, which changes colour when you change the DPI if the driver is not installed and configured otherwise. It was purchased at Walmart. A CD came with the mouse, supposedly with the driver/utility, but generally we just head online to find the driver and download it from there.

Well not this time. People have asked on Reddit, and YouTube, and on Walmart.ca itself, nobody knowing an answer on where to get the drivers for Blackweb.

So I'm not sure if they just didn't get the CD, they just refuse to insert one into their PC, or they don't have an optical drive, but I took the time to fetch the setup file (It's literally the only file on the CD) and upload it here. It's only ~5MB, and to be honest it's way more clunky than Logitech/corsair software I've used, but it gets the job done. It definitely does have "cheap" written all over it but hey... if it works, at least you got the full functionality that was advertised on the box.

The driver lets you change the colour profiles, change button functions (including changing the function of the "DPI" button) and DPI itself from a graphical interface among other things.

If you have this mouse... then look no further than here. EDIT: Additionally, I have provided a download link for other Blackweb models (namely, BWA17 at least). If you have drivers to submit if your model is not supported, please email them to me ([email protected]) to share here.

If any nerds out there want to mirror this that would be great just so I don't lose it down the road if I decide to make server changes, but hopefully I won't ;)

In addition, this reverse engineered python utility is available for the Blackweb AYA(?) mouse (looks similar to the mouse my brother has?) for linux! If you're using debian/ubuntu run sudo apt install python2.4 python-qt4 pyusb and then run sudo ./ayatool_qt.py (remember to chmod it!) to launch the graphical configuration tool (have not tested so if you need help post back especially if I'm wrong about dependencies!). If you can install all that stuff on a Mac it should also work for Mac users. Kudos to commenter Jigoku for writing this!
