G400S : Driver or no driver? - Page 3

post #21 of 32
why dont you just try it? i also used 1600 specifically because me being used to the mx518 and had no issues with tracking or anything at all with the g400s.

1600 cpi on a g400s (or not s) will be interpolated.
The g400s has two native cpi 800 and 4000.
Everything else is recalculated, with or without software.
You don't need the mouse counting 8 times on the same pixel. You are talking different feel, but interpolated cpi give a much worse feel.
You are still "sub-pixel accurate" at 800 (at the sens previously dicussed), and your mouse will have DOUBLE tracking speed than all higher settings.

High cpi limit your tracking speed on all games using windows pointer.
The mouse tracks 4m/s only on 800cpi or lower.
Really no good reason to use that mouse on 1600cpi.

EDIT: MX518 had native 1600cpi step and angle snapping, g400s doesn't. In other words It will never feel like your old mouse.

Not to mention that 800dpi is the native resolution of the A3090/S3095... so it's better than 1600dpi in this case.

The distance you have to move your mouse to get from point A to point B on your screen remains the same, but how many individual points your crosshair can be placed along the way changes slightly. In practical terms anyway. That's why it can feel different.

The native steps on the G400 are 800/1800/3600(4000 on S) afaik

Sounds right off memory, I was just responding to the part about native DPI steps being the same when compensating with sensitivity change. They're close but not identical because of what sensitivity actually does. It's not just a DPI multiplier.

Alright so I installed those drivers. First test was with 1600 dpi, well god that was some awful pixel skipping coupled with smoothing. Nothing like the mx518 v1's 1600, actually felt like a speeded up 800 dpi. I then tried 800 dpi and god, the smoothing. I guess that can appeal to players from some newer games like BF4 or whatnot but I can't picture any serious quake/cs player playing with that.It felt like angle snapping. So anyway, uninstalled the whole thing, cleaned up my pc from any trace of this abomination and cleaned up my device manager too. (never too careful o/) So back on normal now. I'll wait for logitech to put that new 3366 sensor on a MX shaped mouse to try out 1600 again.

Umm can you set 1800DPI without using the drivers? Also any kind of delay/smoothing on the G400s versus the G400?

driverless the 3rd step on the g400s is 2000 opposed to 1800 on the g400

I have the regular G400 and I"m using the Logitech Gaming Software. I have no problems with the drivers whatsoever.
