The ROG Armoury Software is an optional download from the ASUS support website that empowers Gladius mouse users to customize their mouse settings including macros and sensitivity.ASUS ROG Gladius Armoury Software

The software graphical interface is divided into tabs and a table of profiles to the left. The Button assignment menu features a graphic of the ROG Gladius mouse and banks for each button to customize each of their functions.ASUS ROG Gladius Armoury Software

Clicking a bank brings up a window that includes two drop down menus. The four options in the first menu are Mouse Function, Meultimedia, Windows Shortcut, and MACRO. Which of these is chosen determines what options can be selected in the second dropdown.ASUS ROG Gladius Armoury SoftwareASUS ROG Gladius Armoury Software

The macro manager has a list of saved macros to the left. To the right of that is a sheet that displays a flowchart of the recorded macro. The chain of commands can be edited after the recording is complete. Macros can be accessed from a button on the top right corner of the Armoury program.ASUS ROG Gladius Armoury Software
