Steelseries CPI - How much should I increase it when playing at lower resolution?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've got a Steelseries Sensei, and I'm currently using it at a lan. The computers aren't that good, so I have to play at 1280x720. At home I usually play with 1920x1080, 3750 CPI and 0 sensitivity in-game Battlefield 3 (Steelseries website says: (sensitivity 1 or adjust your sensitivity slider to lowest possible setting) ). Now at lan though, I'd asume that with the same CPI at lower resolution, the mouse sens should be a lot higher right? It doesn't feel like this though, it feels directly the opposite, slower. I've tried cleaning out the sensor, but I don't have any Q-Tips here so it's a bit difficult.

tl;dr: How to calculate new CPI when changing resolution?

In most properly made 3D FPS games screen resolution does not influence sensitivity. So with the same sensitivity and CPI you should have constant cm/360° value through all screen resolutions.

I feel thats wrong, but I don't feel like getting into a debate with a person that should know more than me on this topic. CM/360 is the same, but the actual cursor feel changes upon scaling with a fixed CPI value.

The downside of this is that it's literally impossible to find a direct feeling as CPI influences in game sensitivity and the slider. (Sadly, I havent tested or know much about custom m_yaw and m_pitch values)
