Hydra Razor support ?
Hi,
I’ve purchased the game only for its support to Hydra Razor as they say in the specs, but don’t know how to activate it(in the options menu only says “gamepad” but not happens if activated)

Yes, I know if I have loaded MotionCretator (Sixense program) I can emulate the mouse, but this is not native support (only X,Y movement) and this is not what I want when I pay for a game that supports specifically this controller.

If it can’t support natively Hydra Razor, I don’t want the game, how I get back my money? (only played 3 minutes to test the hydra). Thanks

It's Razer with an 'e'. Pretty sure mouse emulation is as good as it's going to get--its game mechanics are 2D, so there's no reason for it to support any 3D mousing. Sixense is apparently no longer licensing their product to Razer, so I doubt you either company will refund your money and all sales through Steam are final. Sixense is making a newer version on their own called STEM. The achievement for BEAT specifically says it has to be a Razer Sixense, so whether they'll accept that achievement once the product is released in October is up to the game producers. You might want to at least get the SIXTH SENSE achievement since only two Steam users have gotten it.

Thanks joeybuddy96, this isn't what I expected when bought the game, but I understand hydra Razor is not so popular, what a pity...

Need to make a few corrections. First off the achievement has been out since at least 2011, long before the STEM was coming out in October. See this Steam thread:
http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1968859

The achievement officially reads: SIXTH.SENSE and once unlocked reads:
"Beat a level using the Razer Sixense Controller" see here:
http://astats.astats.nl/astats/Steam_Achievement_Info.php?AchievementID=20&AppID=63700

Sixense and Razer are seperate companies. The only Razer product that has the Sixense name with it is the Razer Sixense Hydra. It would stand to reason then that the achievement is for beating a level with the Razer Sixense Hydra.

I have the Razer Sixense (Hydra) as well and couldn't get the game to recognize it. There is no such thing as a "Razer Sixense" controller that has been sold and when the new version is called the STEM by Sixense not "Razer Sixense"

For the original poster, here are my results so far--they are similar to yours. The game doesn't seem to recognize the controller in motion control mode and if I put it in gamepad mode and enable gamepads in the options menu nothing happens. I clicked the button on the right controller to turn the right controller into a mouse then used it to beat a level (Sixense made the game so that Bit Trip Beat is supported in this manner see here: http://sixense.com/forum/vbulletin/showthread.php?3297-Bit-Trip-Beat ). Nothing happens even though I have beat different levels several different times using only my Razer Sixense to launch the game, choose a level, and play/beat the level.

I see that others have been able to achieve it though, as recently as Sept 1, 2014 so I am not quite sure what is need in order to achieve it.

Thanks comp9, I’ll try it another time, but I’m very disappointed Bit .Trap developers not explain clearly this in their ad, I’ve been totally fooled :(

I was dissapointed as well, I think the Razor Hydra is neat but hardly any games support it--I was excited when I saw this achievement. Alas, they do not seem to update this game anymore. Perhaps someday...
