800CPI and windows 6/11 for 1:1 ratio is simply too fast

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I really want a complete 1:1 ratio of mouse speed in windows and in my games however 800CPI at windows 6/11 is way too fast.

A full swipe of the screen is about 5CM. I usually go 800CPI windows 4/11 or 1600CPI windows 3/11 but I know in mouse recorder this gives inaccuracies.

So how can I get perfection translation of movement from my hand to my cursor without having a 4cm 180 swipe?

Ummwat? Does that perfect ratio shizz even matter? No, not really. rolleyes.gif I hope you do know that going below 6/11 doesn't mean it's an IMPERFECT translation, it's just a downscale of your dpi. Going ABOVE 6/11 would be rather 'imperfect' as it would skip pixels with the upscale.

Well to ease your compulsiveness, you can use 4/11 and 800 dpi, and in-game check raw input, (for games that have this function) as that bypasses your windows slider setting and letting you used your mouse's desired dpi.

Are you sure that below 6/11 translates properly? The skipping of pixels disturbs me.

Do you mean for Windows too? I got used to Zowie's 500dpi setting in Windows, but adjusted to Recon's 800dpi. In games it depends, some old and new games don't have good in-game mouse sensitivity settings, where I can't go lower and thus 800dpi is actually too fast and I need to have 400dpi so that going from there I only need to set in-game mouse speed only slightly faster.
Unreal for instance has very primitive mouse speed settings, setting 1 is too slow for 500dpi and too fast for 800dpi. Setting 2 is even too fast for 400dpi for me.
Most games have way too insane mouse speed settings, where I need to put it almost to the lowest to have acceptable speed with even 400dpi, while if I put it to max I can 360 several times by just twitching the darn mouse. This is beyond me, but some mysteries in life can never be understood.

Downscaling isn't going to cause skipping. Really, it's just fine. If you wanna, you can still bypass all windows scaling and use raw input for games where it actually matters.

What im trying to do is get an unfiltered, 1:! ratop between my mouse speed in windows and mouse speed in games.

So in windows at 3/11 1600dpi it takes 13 1/4CM to go from one side of the screen to the other. When I go into the games I use raw input and it is the same after a few adjustments.

However i'm scared that even below 6/11, im not getting a perfect translation of movement.

Before questioning mouse accuracy, know what those red lines mean. This just means counts are being deducted from what should be processed. This is the goal of the mouse slider sensitivity anyway and shows that it's working. There's no 'real' inaccuracies. End result is the same as lower DPI anyway.
