Logitech G502 Proteus Core ! - Page 58

post #571 of 3265
Ino's sensitivity was around 23.5 inches per 360 while my sensitivity was about 11.7 inches per 360 (i typically do 12-12.5, but g502 is heavy tongue.gif) So Ino's sensitivity was about half of mine, that is why it might of looked like he was moving his a little slower.

I'd also add, the mouse is stable enough to function and swipe around with the weight lid off. I have a Zowie G-RF mousepad, so the base is solid rubber, making the mousepad deformation structure similar to a hardpad.

First thing that I did. However a depressed button when swiping takes a lot out of the leverage or grip you were using to swipe in the first place. Same concept as balancing on a non-uniform surface.

first things first, if you are good, you are good with every decent mouse.
a game it's not all about flickshots, it's about much else.

that said, i am not a pro gamer or an experienced one, but I am starting to like to be really competitive in amateur matches....and I can often best veterans of Crysis with a mere MMO7:
too heavy, unconfortable beacuse there are too many buttons on the thumbrest, with a flawed PTE sensor

i switched definately to this mouse because the DA was too laggy, but I can kick some asses with the DA even if it's less responsive.

all this to say that having the best mouse is not gonna make you a pro competitive gamer, it's experience, it's brain reaction, it's the ability to adapt.

if you are not a pro, you should think about being good AT GAMING, before being so picky for a mouse choice, because a flawless mouse isn't going to make you the world champion

My post didn't imply that a mouse will make you a professional player. Ultimately, there are better mice available that don't make these silly layout positions. To say "even one that cares about being good with a mouse" suggests that the logitech g502 is very hostile to certain grip configurations, and is also limited by the button layout. Would I perform better with a mouse that has a better mouse shell profile and layout, mouse wheel and properly positioned side buttons? Yes, I will.

obviously the shell profile, or buttons can be hostile to certain grip configurations....but that's the point, only CERTAIN

there are people that are not bothered by the sniper button, or that would love the shape of this mouse....I hate the shape of the MX518,just like the standard logitech scroll wheel.... but many do not....
calling it a plain office mouse because it doesn't suit your needs is too reductive.

Sorry if this is an obvious question, but for those doing the acceleration test in CSGO, were you using m_rawinput 1 and m_customaccel 0?

The problem is, other mice don't have silly side button configurations or sniper buttons. When I try a mouse, I try to accomodate my hand to the mouse shell. What I found with the G502 is that the shell itself is highly restrictive due to the side buttons and sniper button, to the point where it would be incredibly difficult to recommend this mouse to other people. Other mice also don't have a ridiculously front heavy mouse shell (apart from the G500). Is the G502s' layout highly generalizable? I would say no, in the same sense that the best ergonomic chair is the one that provides enough customizable height and width tolerances to fit the most people. So who would I recommend the mouse to? Office workers.

but there are many mice with the sniper button, and it can be binded for other functions like melee or grenade launching.
the addition of a couple of buttons can be useful to bind some actions and allow you to stay more focused on the WASD of the keyboard

it may be not a hardcore obsessed gamer's mouse, but neither a office worker's....
I think it's a good all around mouse that can be used for both tasks with good results

Okay, so I got the mouse. The sniper button is actually hard for me to reach due to my fingertip/claw grip. I have it set to my shadowplay record button. Lol

I have very big hands btw.

seems like i'm having some more software problems with my g502. First i had all 3 profiles enabled but i clicked in the first profile and selected 12000 dpi, and it wouldn't go to 12000 dpi, then i tried clicking on the higher dpi button and it wouldn't go to 12000 dpi. then i disabled the other 2 profiles and it finally went to a high dpi which i assmed was 12000. Then i went ingame and set my sensitivity to 0.115 which should of given me just under 12 inches per 360, instead it was not nearly sensitive enough, i had to set to 0.4 sensitivity which is indicative of it being way lower then 12000 dpi more along 3500 dpi. which is odd because the only sensitivity other then 12,000 in any of my profiles is 400dpi and it definately wasn't 400 dpi, but definately wasn't 12,000 either because after switching in and out of several different profiles eventually i got it to be 12,000 dpi.
