Windows 8.1 - Mouse Acceleration issues

post #1 of 40
Thread Starter 
Hey folks,

Just after some first hand advice from someone who's updated to Windows 8.1. I've read a lot about the issue cause erratic mouse movements etc etc.

I'm wondering whether anyone here has had first hand experience on the matter. Or whether it's definitely worth staying put on Windows 8 for the time being!

Many thanks

I don't think you will get something wow/super going to 8.1. So i would recommend stay with 8 when MS will fix any mouse bugs, i've read that there is mouse input lag on it, something to do with DPI for non Raw Input games.

Created a thread about this a week ago. There is no fix, It's on Microsofts side. They are not acknowledging it even on their own forums. My advice, Downgrade to Windows 8 or 7, 8.1 is not for gamers at this point.

Only solution at this point is to use rawinput if a game supports it or to revert back to 8.0.

Finished formatting last night, back on 8.0, all problems gone.

Great guys. Thanks for the info. Looks like I'll be sticking to 8.0

Have a good week with BF4 if you're going to be playing! smile.gif

Bought an 8.1 disk with my new mobo/proc so kind of boned in that department.

Deus Ex: HR has weird mouse input, not 'lag' but feels like the cursor gets stuck until you swipe it a few times and then gets stuck again if you stop. It's an annoyance, but I don't really play games with crappy mouse controls anyway so it's not a big deal to deal with. All raw input games feel fine and the commotion about limiting to 200hz polling is just false. Still would stay away if you're into the affected games.

Because I get 1000Hz in Enotus.

Depends on how input is fetched. In some cases you will be limited to 200 Hz.

So since you can get 1000 in Enotus, the polling issue is false. Right
