Do I set raw input to 1?
post #12 of 13
What about HPET settings? Briefly:

(CMD) bcdedit /set useplatformclock true (then reboot) enable HPET
(CMD) bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock (then reboot) disable HPET

TSC and LAPICs:
HPET disabled in BIOS, Windows (bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock "Windows default")
LAPICs only:
HPET disabled in BIOS, Windows (bcdedit /set useplatformclock true)
TSC and HPET:
HPET enabled in BIOS, Windows (bcdedit /deletevalue useplatformclock "Windows default")
HPET only:
HPET enabled in BIOS, Windows (bcdedit /set useplatformclock true)

I followed that thread as closely as humanly possible, and the verdict is pretty much the same across the board:

Just leave it alone hahahaha.

I fooled around with it a little bit, and saw that when HPET was set to on, BF3 suffered from horrible spawn stuttering for the 1st couple of spawns, after that it smoothed out, but the framerate and smoothness was pretty much dead even when HPET was set to Off.

My advise is that unless a game is confirmed to benefit from it, just leave it alone.

Sorry for the massive delay.

There's no need to enable/disable Raw Mouse Input via a CVAR, it can be accessed through the in game menu perfectly fine. Try both On and Off, and see what works best for you.

I dealt with some stuttering when set to On, but that was a while back, not sure how it's behaving right now.
