Some kind of resistance when I move around

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've tried both a Corsair M65 and Steelseries Xai (without drivers or anything I think, does it need drivers from the site?) on my computer and they both have some kind of resistance when I move around.

It's kinda hard to explain, like when I'm playing WoW and I move my mouse around the action bar to quickly press spells in succession... it sometimes skips some movement or like it goes slower because there's some kind of resistance. Like it doesn't track my movement correctly. I've already cleaned my Steelseries QcK (the WoW panda one) and didn't see any dust or anything left.

Weird thing is, on the laptop downstairs we have like a 5$ mouse and it doesn't have this problem. Maybe it's because those expensive mouse are a lot more sensitive and more precise?

Do you use any effects that could affect ur 1to1 response of the mouse?
By this i mean stuff like enhance pointer precision on windows or the exact aim feature on the xai.

No idea. Only if enhance precision is automatically on, I'd guess. I haven't enabled anything myself. I did install the firmware for the M65 but that doesn't work on the Xai afaik.

when you install windows, enhance pointer precision is automatically on. To change that, you need to go to your control panel -> hardware -> mouse settings -> 3rd tab -> untick enhance pointer precision.
Additionally i would make sure if your pointer speed is at 6/11. (which is the bar above the enhance precision box).

Also you can try to grab you xai, plug it in and hold the mouse sensitivity changing button, then you can change settings on the mouse itself (look at the screen on the bottom side of the mouse). To navigate through the profiles/settings you use your scroll wheel and to "click ok" you press your scroll wheel (which is mouse button 3). Make sure settings like, exact aim, exactmove and exactaccel are all set to 0.

Dont forget to save ur profile at the end otherwise the next time you launch your pc you have to redo it again.

Last thing is to check mouse settings inside WoW which you can find in the interface options -> mouse/camera I believe.

Thanks for the info, will do it in a bit.

BTW, is it normal the Xai is kinda slow if you don't use the "increase dpi button" (white light turns on if used)? It's like I have to drag my mouse several times to reach the end of the screen. Not a problem if button is on though.

a profile on the xai has 2 different dpi steps, which you can also change on the mouse itself (its called exactsense and the number stands for your dpi). By default the first setting (no light) is 450dpi and the 2nd is 900dpi (light on). Which means the 2nd one is twice as fast.
