What's New in Engine 3.4.2

31 Jul 2015

by The SteelSeries Engine Team

SteelSeries is happy to announce Dota 2 GameSense support in SteelSeries Engine!

We’ve worked with the team over at Valve to bring you another incredible experience.

Configure your SteelSeries gear and customize your lighting effects based on the following in-game Dota 2 events:

  • Health
  • Mana
  • Ability Cooldown Timers
  • Item Cooldown Timers
  • Deaths
  • Kills
  • Kill/Death Ratio
  • Kill Streak
  • Reliable Buyback
  • Respawn Timer
  • Status Effects such as Stunned, Silenced, Disarmed, and others

Each cooldown is individually customizable based on the number of seconds remaining before the ability, item, or respawn is available

The defaults for Kill Streak display match the in-game announcements for your streak

The special event for Items allows Apex M800 users to view the status of each item slot with a glance at the Insert to Page Down block on their keyboard. For each item slot, it shows whether it is an empty slot, a passive item, or an active item with its cooldown status.

The Reliable Buyback event shows when you have enough reliable gold for a guaranteed buyback

Be sure to see it in action at the SteelSeries booth @ TI5
