Best DPI Settings? - Page 2

post #11 of 48
The bottom line is: more CPI = more speed, if you need more speed then set your CPI higher.

tl;dr

quake/goldsrc/source engines only:

900 CPI and a sensitivity value of "1" to the left (non interpolated) , 450 CPI and sensitivity value of "2" to the right (interpolated). 360 distance: Identical.

This is basically DPI/CPI in a nutshell, although the degree of interpolation likely differs when we switch to a 3D environment. Not going to be identical, but it's probably the best way to simulate what happens in game. Precision? Yes.

Lower sensitivity = more precision, not higher CPI. Nothing is interpolated just angles with sensitivity 2.0 are x2 larger than with 1.0.

For 1920x1080 I use 800-900DPI. I usually play games with a sensitivity of 22cm/360.

plug in your values and see what your estimated useful dpi is

for me 15"/360 @ 1920x1080 my estimated useful dpi is 398.

What's in-game sensitivity? The 2nd level of CPI found on the games setting? Right i forgot about that... What value should that be set on? Also how is the FPS information useful for these equations? Does it mean the FPS achieved while running a specific game?

Do you have an A9500 mouse?
