Razer Synapse 2.0 DPI=Sensitivity???

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So I recently updated my Razer drivers to Synapse 2.0 due to fresh install and I am a little annoyed at how the DPI and sensitivity work. Now, according to Razer, DPI=Sensitivity.

I used to play games at: DPI 1800, in-razer-software sens of like 1.5/10 and basic windows sens.

Now, they claim that DPI=hardware and sensitivity=software so DPI is a "more accurate" way to adjust the sensitivity.

So what is the point of having a high DPI mouse if I am an old school low-sens FPS player? Seems kind of weird to me. I am now at 400 DPI (same as my old Intellimouse 3.0) and I feel like I wasted an upgrade.

Has anyone else run into this? There is literally no "sensitivity" setting anymore. The response I got from Razer was that "effectively now DPI=sensitivity"

Roccat is the only company I know who puts additional sensitivity adjustment to the software.

But...say you didn't buy a new mouse because of higher dpi? ;O

You can lower your Windows sens down to 3 and have 1800 dpi. But I guess that's like 800 dpi with Windows sens at middle. Not sure...

From my understanding (and I am a picky mouse man) the windows sensitivty must remain at default 6 or else it tends to cause acceleration. Also, Razer had DPI and in-software sensitivity changes. I had mine at 1800 DPI and like 1.5/10 sens.

Lowering it down to 4 or 3 is ok.

7 or more is bad.

Try it.

For the most part I've heard that leaving windows sens at 6 is important or else it can cause acceleration in games... I've done the windows 7 mouse fix but i still want to make sure I'm not causing accel. 400 DPI seems to work for now I guess, I just don't see the point of a high DPI mouse if you have to use that for accel =P

You can turn off Windows acceleration by disabling "Enhance pointer precision" in Control Panel.

Yeah I have that off. I've also run the windows 7 mouse fix. I am pretty sure the suggestion is that windows on non-6 sens is in some way associated with in-game acceleration issues. Might be total crap.. but for now I guess I am happy where it is. I wonder if I put windows sens to like 3 and DPI to like 1800 if it would feel better, but that statement about leaving windows accel on it's natural 6/11 has me wondering =P

I was under the impression that a software sensitivity divider was basically the equivalent of running a lower DPI but with software overhead; in your case 1800 DPI @ 1.5/10 would be 270 DPI...

There's no accel associated with the slider bar, only Enhanced pointer precision. The windows accel fix only changes the acceleration graph used by the EPP, so in case EPP is used then there should still be no acceleration. This achieves the same effect as merely disabling it.

The slider bar values adjust the input of counts to 'add' or 'subtract' them. Values over 6 add counts and below 6 subtract counts to make the cursor feel faster or slower. This is not acceleration as there is a defined constant amount of counts being added or subtracted.

4 is okay and will make 1800 dpi feel like 900.
3 will make 1800 feel like 450.

Cool thanks a lot. I really was under the impression that windows sens couldn't actually do that.. so here is the last question in that case.

If I run 400 DPI and 6/11 windows sens, is there ANY difference between that and 1800 DPI and 3/11 windows sens? Will my mouse be more accurate due to higher DPI? That is the real question here.
