CM Spawn DPI pointer speed configuration?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I read this thread that explains pointer speed: http://www.overclock.net/t/1265192/dpi-vs-microsoft-pointer-speed

and how it just skips counts so it is less accurate unless you have it at 6/11. The software for the mouse only had 3 DPI options, 800, 1800, 3500. Well 800 is too slow for me and 1800 is too fast. How do I get somewhere in the middle without losing accuracy? please. Anyone?

Too fast for what? If you're talking about the desktop, yeah you might have to get used to 1800. I use 1620 on my Sensei for desktop use. What mouse do you have and what games are you looking to play with it? Judging by your CPI steps you probably have a DA 3.5G, where 1800 CPI is optimal. That's just for that specific sensor though. We can go into more detail but tell us what mouse what game and what sensitivity (if FPS, what's your cm/360?)

Too fast for everything. I like my cursor to move across the screen at the same rate regardless of what I'm doing or what game I am in. The only game I really play any more is DOTA2 and I don't want different setting just for that.

I googled CPI steps and DA 3.5G and the results were clearly not about mice. Can you tell me what thost abbreviations stand for so I can go read up?

I use a CM Storm Spawn. I developed a a claw grip from erratically drawing boxes around my starcraft armies for 15 years and this is the most comfortable mouse I have ever had.



If my answers confirm your assumptions were right and the best thing for me to do would be to get used to 1800 then I'm screwed because I can't. Could you tell me the way sacrifice the least accuracy? and if that doesnt work I guess I'll have to try other mice.


Thanks

CPI is the proper name for what the industry calls "DPI". CPI = counts per inch, DPI = dots per inch. They mean the 'same' thing but CPI is a more precise term.

If you don't want to adjust in-game sensitivity and just want to adjust to a different CPI setting on your mouse, and use a claw grip...then obviously you need a good claw grip mouse but with more customization in the CPI levels. You can't just adjust the in-game sensitivity? I'm not as familiar with DOTA2, since I'm a competitive-class FPS gamer. Then again, for the desktop that would be too fast.

I'm not actually sure I'm aware of any smaller laser or optical mice with heavy CPI setting customization. Hmm. Maybe someone else would know of such a thing.

LOL. I play to win though, not to have fun in a more traditional sense. Winning is the fun for me. Like SteelSeries says, "Winning is everything." biggrin.gif

Not to mention my aim can be nearly impossible to beat. When you have spent your high school days many years back playing nothing but COD4 each and every day and putting in 50 hours a week on the same game during the summers...you get a bit decent at aiming. The hackusations came when I started playing as low as 17"/180, but nowadays I play at 60cm/360. Hence my foray into high speed gaming mice. Hence my joining of this forum. I love these things.

You don't. I have Spawn too and use it at "1350 DPI" setting. Of course I use 1800 DPI combined with Windows' 5/11 speed slider setting to achieve that. In my opinion, using "perfect" 6/11 setting always is highly exaggerated, especially for RTS games. If 5/11 won't fit you, try "in between" settings - look at last post in the topic you mentioned.

I believe if the game is using direct input than your windows slider settings is irrelevant.

Correct. Raw will read directly from the mouse and not call any mouse move functions from Windows that could result in a max speed limit.
