Need your oppinions on something

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi,

So I stombled across this thread:
http://www.esreality.com/post/2058527/3rd-party-mouse-driver-gui-located-here/

It's basically (as far as I get it, which isn't far at all) a 3rd party driver for every mouse, that lets you set sensitivity, acceleration, smoothing (not sure what this means) and more.

Since I use a Zowie FK which has a flawed 450CPI step, which sucks for me because in some games thats the only CPI that's not too high, I thought I'd give it a try.
So far it works just like I imagined it would work - you can set the speed of you mouse between 0.01 and 1.00 (turns out it's %, so 800CPI @ 0.5 = 400CPI etc.).

What I'm wondering though is what terrible things this might do to my mouses precision/tracking. Stuff like pixel skipping, input lag or whatever it might be.
I tested max tracking speed and it seems to be the same as before.
But bejond that I'm just lacking the knowlege of stuff like this to figure out what impacts something like this might have on a mouses performance.
So that's where I need your oppinion.
Do you think something like this is good to use or would you stay away from it?

This won't have a negative impact other than it might not work on some mice products out there.
If you use it, just see if you have added input lag and so on. If so, revert the changes and remove the driver.

A third party driver isn't going to fix a flawed SROM... There's no magic bullet for this issue. Some people are bothered by it, and some people don't even notice.

I think you misunderstood. I'm using the 2300 CPI step now and scale the sensitivity down to the level of 400CPI.
