Desktop 2nd MK
Step 1: Connect the mouse you will be gaming with to your PC and set the DPI to 4000 and Polling Report Rate to 250Hz (console) or 1000Hz (PC). If you can have multiple DPI to use with an ON-Board Memory profile like the Logitech G502, set a high DPI of 4000 and low DPI of 1000 in your mouse manufacturer software application.
Step 2: Connect Zen to desktop with both the PROG and CONSOLE/PC USB cables. Connect your Keyboard to A2.
Step 3: Open Zen Studio and select the M&K Settings tab. Some keyboards like Redragon output as both a mouse and keyboard. If this is happening with your setup, right click on the Mouse and select IGNORE DEVICE. You can now reset the Zen and it should show only a Keyboard is connected. You can now connect your Mouse to A3.
Step 4: Import one of the preset MK profiles (everything has been done for you including key mapping, sensitivity, tuning, and ballistic curves). For this example, we will be using Apex Legends. Now click "Finalize Layout" on the left of the screen to save settings to your device.
If settings are not finalized any settings made or loaded profiles for your Zen will be reset once the PROG cable is disconnected from your Zen.
Step 5: Unplug the PROG USB cable. If you are gaming on a PC, keep the console USB cable connected, if you are gaming on a console, for example an Xbox Series X , connect an original Xbox controller to A1 (license donor), and connect the CONSOLE USB cable to the Xbox. Press the Zen reset button and the RGB lights will turn GREEN.
Step 6: Match the in-game settings that you're given on the Apex Legends Page linked below.
Step 7: Play :)
If you do not have an MK Switch you are able to use a second set of mice and keyboard to set keybinds. This is needed as not all functions in MK Settings can be done with a mouse or keyboard connected directly to your Zen such as Canceling a bind, Clearing a bind, or setting a bind to "Listening". To cancel, clear, or set a bind you will need to use the mouse and keyboard that is connected to your desktop.
1) Ensure the mouse you will be gaming with is in On-Board Memory Mode. For Logitech mice, this is done in GHUB by clicking the gear icon on the top right of the screen and making sure that On-Board Memory Mode says "ON". If it shows as "OFF" simply click the button one time. If On-Board Memory Mode is not enabled the profile containing the binds that were customized will not be detected by Zen Studio correctly. For other devices please refer to your mice manufacturer. This is usually done in the software used to set DPI and Polling.
2) Connect your Logitech mouse you will be gaming with Zen to port A3 and your keyboard you will be gaming with to port A2.
3) Connect your second set of mouse and keyboard to your desktop.
4) With your second mouse that is connected to your desktop, in MK Settings set the controller button bind you wish to map for your G Button, mouse button, or keyboard key to "Listening" by double-clicking it.
If a mistake is made you are able to clear a bind when it is set to listening by holding Backspace. A bind set to listening can be canceled by holding the Esc key. It is important to note that in order to cancel or clear a bind when using an MK Switch that the switch must be set to output to your computer. If it is set to output to your Zen it will change to the selected bind to the key you are holding.
5) Using the mouse connected to your Zen and press the G button or mouse button you wish to use. If done correctly with a G button or mouse button which is bound as a keyboard key on the Onboard Memory profile the bind will show MouseKey before the keyboard button. Otherwise, if it is a mouse button it will show up as the mouse button it is. If the bind is set with a keyboard it will then show as the keyboard key it is and not display MouseKey before the key.
6) Repeat Steps 4 and 5 until you have mapped all G buttons and mouse buttons you wish to use with your MK profile.
7) Then with your second mouse that is connected to your desktop, in MK Settings set the controller button bind you wish to map for your keyboard key to "Listening" by double-clicking it.
8) Using the keyboard connected to your Zen press the keyboard key you wish to use. If done correctly the bind will display the keyboard key you just pressed. Unlike a mouse which would show as MouseKey before the key.
9) Repeat Steps 7 and 8 until you have mapped all keyboard keys you wish to use with your MK profile.
10) Click "Edit" under "Profile Info" and set a name for your MK Profile. Then "Confirm" once done.
11) In the upper right of MK Settings click "Export Layout" to save a copy of your MK Profile to use another time if you wish. Only one MK Profile can be loaded onto your Zen at a time. Loading another profile after the current one you are using will overwrite the current profile. This makes it easy as simply importing the profile you just made without the need of having to reset all binds, tuning, translator, sensitivity, and ballistic curve again.
