Windows 8 weird mouse feel :mad:

post #1 of 30
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

i have fresh installed windows 8 since today.

The feel how the mouse reacts on windows 8 is very weird compared to windows 7 in my opinion, anyone noticed this?

It is....faster..and inaccurate at the same time.

Any way to patch the desired *.sys back to windows 7?

Windows 8 uses mouhid.sys.

Edit: Enhanced pointer precision is deactivated. My mouse -> Kinzuadder

I have been noticing this as well, glad it isn't just me. Still looking for a fix.

Not sure If placebo or not, but I'm partial to agree that windows sens certainly feels different. Back on 7 tho as program compatibility and openGL performance was subpar on 8

I wonder if anything was changed in regards to Mouse Input in windows 8? I don't really mind if it's different if it's for the better and not for the worse.

Installed windows 8 the other night. I've done a few hours of scrim matches since then. Feels exactly the same.

Feels exactly the same. Are you sure that it's not only in your mind? tongue.gif

I'm sure it is not only in my mind, the weird thing is, in games it feels the same as it feels in windows 7 but on my Desktop not. wth.gif

I thought I felt something different at the beginning but as I had both systems installed then noticed that it was just my imagination after a while of booting 7 ans 8 back and forth.

Maybe the lack of start menu is tricking your mind.
