Does holding a mouse crooked hurt accuracy? - Page 2

post #11 of 20
Thread Starter 
i have tried 5 dif mousepads 15 dif mice (returned em all) i have multiple computers at my house


i dont use acceleration i cant do low sensitivity because i pivot my hand from my wrist and using low sens would require my hand to be levitated and tiresome most likely (maybe id build the arm strength but i used to do chair sits at basketball practice and that stuffs rather hard and similar...)

registry fix as in the markc fix or whatever? if so ive tried that

the only thing i havent really read about is input lag. how do i check to see if my input lag is low?

Put the mouse in your hand like you always do. Then turn it upside down, see if the sensor is aligned. If not modify your grip to something that aligns the sensor.

You may not find a comfortable grip with that mouse. If that is the case you may want to look for another mouse. Ergonomic mice tend to be either perfect or not. I prefer symmetrical mice because they do not dictate grip as much as ergonomic mice.

Ok, again, ALL my experience comes from CS 1.6 (watching matches, footage of pros playing, etc), and from what I can gather, low sens is the way to go if you want to be accurate.

Yes, some people might have awesome aim with high sens, but that's not how it usually works.

And by low sens I mean that, give or take, you can do a 90 degree turn moving from the center of your mouse pad to a border. Doing a 180 from middle to border might be considered low enough on my book, if you have a large pad.

About the part of your arm getting tired, that's never happened to me.

Edit: about the Input lag stuff, I like to have at least 60fps in modern games. 100fps used to be the rule for CS 1.6. Refresh rate on your screen not relevant at this point.

they do have a hard time when you spin the ball too fast, so instead I up the acceleration a bit and try to stay on the speed limit.

I wonder how hard it would be to solder my Xornet's sensor down there...thinking.gif

That's called a mental block.

I used to sort of do that until I got a wrist injury. To many hours a day practicing for CS matches. Now I don't do that at all. I moved on to using only my elbow/shoulder to move my mouse.

Doesn't seem to effect my accuracy, I use 800 dpi btw

Depends on your setup.

At home I have my elbow on my arm rest of my chair. The arm rest is higher than the table. When I don't have a chair to do that with, I either rest my arm up to my elbow (or part of the forearm) on the table, if that is possible, or I just have my arm hover the table.

The hand and forearm generally move in a rainbow like arch. Much like the shape of the Steel Series mouse mat.



I don't force my mouse to physically move in a straight line. Forcing the mouse into a straight line caused an injury to my wrist.

That is one reason why I do not favor short mice... < 38mm.

I use my mouse the same way as you describe. I think what people arent reakizing is your body can compensate for any arches your arm makes and retain a straight line. Kind of like how your eyes can compensate for the warping effect thick eye glasses cause.
