Even if that was so, he never set foot in the mouse section. Strictly keyboards.

actually mean that for 1920, the ideal pixel precise sens has to be between 1.357 and 2.713???
how do CPI corelate with that? I still quite dont get a lot of the stuff..
I use 1920 with 1800 dpi atm and wanna know what is best to use.

This site let's you calculate how much dpi you need to have at least pixel precise aiming: http://www.funender.com/quake/mouse/index.html
Basically the same thing that is explained in the post, only easier to do wink.gif

basically, if you want to set up your sensitivity for pixel to pixel precision you need to use this formula:

b = (360 * tan(f / 2)) / (pi * g * y)

This calculates what sensitivity you need to set in game for pixel to pixel precision. However, if you want to keep your current distance/360°, you also need to then use this formula:

r = (pi * g) / (i * tan(f / 2))

This will calculate what cpi you need in order to retain the distance/360° that you want. This has nothing to do with pixel precision, but your rotational speed when you have set up being 'pixel precise'. I'm not a huge fan of the idea though as how you interact with the world, and how you view it are pretty different. Also, what happens in the future when 4k displays are the norm (I know, its a long way off yet rolleyes.gif)?

I assume he means 1920x1080, in which case, fov of 90 has to recalculated with 106.26 due to hor+ scale.

Or.

Just reference 1440 with 90 fov. smile.gif


Edit: @ jayfkay. Think this way: CPI is nothing more than your personal sensitivity.

Irrelevant to precision, though this does not mean that mice can't be precise. It's just been marketed in such a way that leads the average consumer to believe otherwise.

I actually use 84 fov tongue.gif I just wanted to imrpove precision, however it is out of question to alter DPI too much, using an old DA 3g atm, with 6/11 and 0.86 ingame sens. Which roughly should be 30cm/360.
Just always trying to imrpove somethign and if it means altering my sens by a few cm then why not if it helps.. just no clue what to do atm.
is it save to toy aroudn with the DA 3g DPI settings? which ones are recommended? malfunction speed 1.5m/s is easily enough for me
