What level of Actuation works best for me?

Actuation levels are a personal preference and they vary depending of the type of games you play. We encourage you to start with the default of 1.8mm and slowly increase or decrease the Actuation level to find the level that fits you best.

For example, increasing Actuation from 1.8mm to 1.4mm may be just enough. Actuation can be adjusted for individual keys making Actuation adjustment even more customizable to fit your needs.

Actuation will save onboard your device and can be adjusted both via Engine and via the device itself. On device, using the SS Key + I/O will increase or decrease your Actuation level.

If you play games such as Valorant, CS2 or LoL, checkout this blogpost with an already guided tailored experience for your specific game:

Prism is Software based illumination that does not save onboard your Prims enabled devices. In order for Prism to power illumination for your devices, GG will need to keep running in the background or be fully open.

You can simply turn it on and off by using the toggle in the audio config window. Learn more here:

If specific keys are not selectable in Prism, please check the following:

1. Navigate to the Engine Gear tab

2. Open your device’s config window

3. Navigate to Settings

4. Under Keyboard Region, make sure you have the correct keyboard region selected

5. After selecting the correct layout, fully close GG from systray

6. Re-launch GG

After following the steps above, if you are still experiencing issues with your keyboard layout in Prism please reach out to support so we can further assist

If you don’t want to use an app such as Moments, you can turn it off in the settings. When turned off it will not effect your performance and will not run in the background.

The same goes for SteelSeries Engine. If you don’t have a SteelSeries device plugged in, the Engine application inside GG will not be running in the background.

To turn Moments off you can do either of the following:
1. Click the dropdown menu above the Moments gallery and turn off “Gameplay capture”
2. Go to Settings -> Capture and Sound -> Turn off “Allow Moments to capture while gaming”

CloudSync has been removed from Engine for now since it did not live up to your needs.

We're reconsidering how to develop a better version and hope to bring it back in the near future with even more features!
