Installed the markC mouse acceleration fix but didn't like it, Want to know for sure if it's back on default windows 10 values.

Thread Starter 
Hello,

I recently installed the markC mouse acceleration fix to simply try it out. I didn't like it and realised i liked the default windows 10 settings more. i forgot to back up my system so i couldnt do a system restore so i simply clicked the default windows 8-10.reg file that came with the fix to set it back to default values. My mouse movement still doesnt feel the same as before, i just wanna know... Does that fix only change the SmoothmouseXcurve and the SmoothmouseYcurve? If so, it has to be back on default right now. i'm just anxious that it might have changed more values.



Hopefully someone can give me an answer,

I felt the same way, but on Windows 7. It's probably just a placebo but the default one included with Mark C just never felt right. Re-installed and backed up the mouse portion of regedit myself. If you have any friends that have Windows 10 ask them to send you theirs. Or maybe someone on the forum could.

could you share that portion? i remember applying the "default fix" from Mark but it didn't feel like the same curve as before. i just wanna compare them for a bit

Well, it could be a placebo effect, But i really notice a difference.
I can't possibly imagine it changes more than the SmoothmouseXcurve
and smoothmouseYcurve... Anyway is there a way to restore the registry
back to its default state without system restore since i didnt set it up properly.
I know , kinda dumb to not think about it before doing this mouse fix.

Maybe it's better to just reinstall windows 10 so i can stop thinking about this issue,
im pretty highly sensitive if it comes down to mouse sensitivity and gaming.
I already asked someone to send a screenshot of their registry (hkey current user/control panel /mouse)
and that was exactly the same as i have it now.

Not sure why anybody messes with something that was literally for windows XP, all you need to do on windows 7 and above is disabled enhanced pointer precision and you're good to go; anything else is either the mouse sensor/software itself or the game engine filtering.. now you're in a scenario where you're going to be paranoid about a stupid change some software did and probably won't feel normal until you reformat/get the default file

edit: you've already said that so you do understand tongue.gif

this was never OS-specific, it's game-specific.
for example HL and Quake 2 will force the EPP curve, even if you have it turned off. HL later received -noforcemparms, but you're gonna need the fix for Q2, at least the disc version of it.
maybe the earlier UT games had it too, but afaik they both received DirectInput later on. there are probably a few more games

Honestly the windows 10 & 8 default is pretty bad and contrary to popular belief is very different from Win 7. I tinkered between 7 / 10 & using cpl mouse fix (never liked markc) on/off and have settled for windows 7 no mouse fix.

I'm not sure what you're playing but windows 10 should be fine if youre using rawinput

Strange but I don't recall having an issue on both HLDM/quake world; swore this was just a registry change to get disable the EPP globally


@ above
It's placebo if you've changed it back to what it was
