say I have 2k dpi.. 500hz only kick in at moderate speeds of the mouse. would it kick in earlier with 400dpi as the sensor needs to do more work basically?

no. that is complete nonsense

And you think you've done that? With a field of view of 90 degrees and a resolution of 800 by 600 pixels, you might conclude that an instant 90 degree turn means skipping about 800 pixels, but that would be wrong. If you use software scaling to increase or reduce the speed of a cursor moving over a field of pixels, you will with many configurations cause the cursor to either ignore a percentage of mickies or move more than one pixel for at least a percentage of mickies. Changing in-game sensitivity of an FPS on the other hand doesn't cause any of the mickies a mouse sends out to be treated differently from its siblings. Setting sensitivity=90 and m_yaw=1 simply means that every horizontal mickie the game gets handed from the operating system is translated into a 90 degree turn. Consider the following: Your shooter runs at 800 by 600 pixels, displaying a field of view of 90 degrees. You set m_yaw=1, m_pitch=1, and sensitivity=0.16875. Will this cause your mouse to skip half a pixel with every mickie? If you set sensitivity=0.05625, will this cause movements of half a pixel? Using a dollar, you may be able to buy yourself a bottle of water. That doesn't mean consuming the dollar will quench your thirst. wink.gif

There is a common understanding as to what the erroneously termed "pixel skipping" means, as it pertains to the FPS genre. Are you implying there are other types of video games?

"Common understanding"? More like a common misconception.

Are you implying that Starcraft: Broodwar is a first-person shooter?

It's conventional. In any case, I didn't realize Starcraft was the medium in question.

LoL you noob, if you even looked at my sig you would know I have a mouse with a DPI switch button which is fast and easy which I can access at anytime in any situation. So have fun, I'm going to use my twitch DPI setting with my shotgun so I can spin around with the slightest stroke of the mouse and use my main DPI with most every other gun (being 2600DPI)

~1100 for desktop and starcraft, ~400 for Counter strike.

dpi depending on the mouse I use (whatever is the best on the specific model), currently 800.

60 cm/360°
Fast enough

I use 1,000 C.P.I. at 500Hz on my Lachesis 3G with a 19" L.C.D. at 1,280x1,024 and 75Hz.
The 3G Lachesis probably does not have an S.P.I. rate of 1,000Hz or more becuse I noticed a difference from 1,000Hz to 500Hz that seemed like 500Hz was smoother; I read that it might be 700Hz.

1600 on the desktop (1920x1080). I'd use more, but my mouse doesn't support it.

400 in CS, because I think it tracks best at that CPI.
