Switching from IE 3.0 to SS Rival - sensitivity problem in cs:go

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hello,
Recently I switched my mouse from IE 3.0 to Steelseries Rival. At the beginning I felt like it's much faster then my old mouse (in cs:go), but then I thought that maybe it's because of new sensor and mousepad. Maybe it's just a "feeling".
Today I plugged in my old IE 3.0 to run some tests. Both mouses have same settings: 500 hz, 400 dpi. I moved mouses on same distance on mousepad. The difference in game was big. I had to lower sensitivity at Rival from 2.2 to 1.5 to make same movement in game like in IE 3.0. Is that normal? Ok, they have different sensors and sensitivity might be lil different, but that much? And seems like in windows both mouses work the same way.
Thanks!

Doesn't make sense if they are at the same dpi setting and in game sensitivity is the same.

In the long Rival thread there's talk about a bug that makes the mouse run on higher DPI than the one you set. It sounds like that is happening.

I've actually noticed this when moving from my Zowie FK to the Mionix Avior 7000 (same sensor as the rival). Even with the FK having a higher DPI at 1150 it feels like the Avior moves across the screen quicker. Not sure what's behind it. It doesn't bother me, but it something that I have noticed and have had to get used to.

Maybe ur hitting the max control speed of the IE 3.0 (1.7m/s ) and then u get negative acceleration means your mouse tracks slower.
The rival has 5.x m/s and keeps tracking at the same speed all the time, which theoretically achieves a further distance than the IE 3.0 at same dpi levels. (if the 1.7m/s on the IE 3.0 is passed of course)

Have you tried to move both of your mice slowly for the same distance and see how many degrees u turn ingame?

400dpi on the Rival does not equal 400dpi in the IE 3.0. This goes for all mice. Each mice's advertised dpi is an estimate. Furthermore, dpi is varying due to hardware tolerance and surface it tracks on (especially for opticals).

Use enotus mouse test to see what DPI you are acctually getting, then use this website to match your sensitivity:

The IE 3.0/WMO/1.1 are all 430 dpi,

Their DPI varies, mostly between 400-450
