I just got the Spawn--I started playing with 800dpi/500hz 49.3cm/360 on a SS9HD and have not been disappointed. If you go into paint, you can see a difference between 800 and 1800dpi and this jitter, but its negligible; I didn't notice anything while playing.

Ill probably try 1800/1000 a bit more, but right now 800/500 feels like a winner.

Just wanted to say great review.

You can do that but sensitivity will be 1.0 still. There are m_yaw m_pitch values set at default 0.022. You can change m_yaw to get lower horizontal sensitivity but m_pitch is minimum 0.022, so you'll end with different X/Y speed.

After testing out all the dpi and polling rate levels I can honestly say that the enotus mouse test is just as accurate as outerspace mouse logger

I got all the same results as f u r u y a with at most 0.08m/s difference

You just have to make sure you have the dpi set at exactly the same levels in the mouse as in the enotus mouse test

Outerspace mouse logger has "Enotus Mouse Log" in description, probably both use same code and are made by one person.

Hiya,

Was wondering if someone please could inform me a bit about poll rates on the Spawn. Like, at 1800 dpi, why wouldn't you just use the highest poll rate available? What are the potential drawbacks of using 500 or 1000 hz?

Another question I have is whether the 3500 dpi setting is somehow inferior in terms of tracking to the 1800 setting?

The perfect control speed isn't as high at higher polling rates: you will experience acceleration at a lower swipe rate with the higher polling rates than you would at the lower polling rates. If you don't swipe that fast, then it won't be an issue.

The 1.6 client for whatever reason won't allow this. Other goldsrc and quake based engines do though.
