Sensitivity Software?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I just used my buddies old G5 mouse to test its feel. It wasn't too bad, I'm used to my $10 optical Logitech mouse I bought six years ago. It's like, I like to pick my mouse up and move it while gaming, and I'm used to it. The G5 was too heavy to pick up, even with all the weight removed. One thing about the G5 that I did like was the sensitivity adjustments. I was able to increase the sensitivity by hitting a button, which made flying jets in BF3 a lot easier since they removed the ability to adjust each vehicles sensitivity individually.

I was wondering if there's any software out there that would allow me to program different sensitivities to my mouse, which I would be able to change by hitting a specific button on the keyboard, or am I stuck with buying a gaming mouse? I would like to keep using my $10 Logitech mouse because I'm accustomed to the way it performs.

Can't you use binds? Like

Code:
bind m sensitivity x
bind p sensitivity y
bind l sensitivity z
Or is BF3 not as good as Quake?

It's very possible that you can't do even simple scripting binds like those in BF3.

Your best bet would be to get a lighter mouse that still offers good on the fly DPI switching. The Spawn or the upcoming Xornet are good examples of fairly light ones.

From what I understand, BF2 doesn't use the Windows pointer speed to calculate sensitivity. Any script or program would simply change this value, so if BF3 is the same you're out of luck.

Theres a "raw" mouse input driver. But it takes some effort to get it working and to understand + requires "test mode" to be enabled in win7/vista.

That disables mouse acceleration. Also wont give you "raw mouse input" in games that force the games software input.

Are you looking for a mouse with the same shape as the G500?

in the first place it was made to enable mouse acceleration. It features many other things. It modifies windows sensitivity at lower level. So every scalling that happens in other games or drivers (in case u get them to work) is based on that sens. From my very own experience, i was able to cut my sensitivity in half in Quake3 engine games @ in_mouse 1, -1 and 2 (where 1 should be based on my windows slider settings 1:1, but effective DPI was cut in half)

I wanted to do something similar a while ago and you´ll have to modify or write new drivers. There´s a program called Auto-Hotkey to assign keys to certain complex commands, but the most you´ll be able to change is the windows sensitivity on the fly but you won´t change the way the sensor reports the movement or the in-game sensibilities.

The best is to get a mouse that allows low-level hardware cpi-changes or programmable dpi-changes by software. I´m waiting for the Corsair M60 to have the sniper button (which changes the CPI setting while pressed) feature. Light mice with on-the-fly cpi adjustment I know the CM Spawn and the old Razer Copperhead and Diamondback.

word.

I only recomment it when using old mice and/or beeing forced to use the same DPI and getting trouble finding a sensitivity in newer games. (so called console-ports for example)
