G303 sensor malfunction ONLY in CSGO, why?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have been really enjoying my G303 for a while but for some reason the sensor malfunctions only in 1 game, CSGO.

When I do extremely fast flick shots or 180 turns my cursor ends up either pointing towards the sky or floor. Its kind of annoying.

I can only replicate this kind of behavior from the mouse from CSGO.

Any other game or desktop environment, no matter how fast I swipe my mouse, it never malfunctions, and im talking like im really giving it extremely hard and violent swips across my mousepad. Im basically trying to make it malfunction.

Is there a reason for this?

edit : forgot to mention settings.

G303 settings:

1200 DPI
1000 HZ

CSGO settings :

Rawinput on
Sensitivity 1.2


I have tried 500hz polling, same behavior as well as lowering the DPI and increasing sens in game. All exhibit same behavior.

Mine malfunctions anywhere, ** The only thing I've found that can kind of make it occur less was going to

Device Manager>Universal Serial Bus Controller>Find the first USB ROOT HUB>Right click properties>power options>Uncheck allow this device to be turned off to save power

It won't stop it from happening but it will make it less frequent - not sure how it's related. Haven't been able to stop it completely either. It's the g303 for sure. I've had 3 of them and they all do it.

Can use a mouse from any other brand and it will never occur. I just made mine malfunction on the desktop with this page open

Never had any of them require a firmware update - they all said they were up to date. I've had it happen on two different cloth pads

Sometimes the firmware update won't detect in LGS but you'll be able to manually upgrade. Was like that for the G402 for a few months.

Run it from the folder if its there or grab it from the site. It will let you know if you're at latest when you try to do the actual update.

Ran it from the folder, it installed the firmware however after installing I did it again and it just installed it again - so it never actually checks from that file itself if it's already on the same version. I'll see if it made a difference but unlikely I think I was already on that version -- and unlike OP my crosshair doesn't flick down or upward the mouse itself just shuts off

It should. The firmware update normally has a version check. Will state you already have blahblahblah like here at the bottom insteaf of "To begin...".

Mine shows that picture every time I do it even after the update is successful. Exactly the way it shows u there and it can't be exited unless u kill the process

But I flashed it twice already the mouse is still working - only thing was one setting got set back to default which was 'show LED startup effect when mouse turns on or something"
