I am not sure which changes the update actually implemented though. It only informs that:
- Firmware enhancement to improve response time when changing settings.
The issue still appears to be existent. After performing a bunch of rapid swipes, I noticed that the random tracking skip is still existent.
Also, please note that this is not a Deathadder exclusive problem. I tested both the G500 and the Intellimouse 1.1 for the malfunction before moving to the Deathadder. The two previously tested mice actually appeared to have a lower malfunction point which was noticeably easier to trigger.
The original mouse that I encountered the malfunction with was the Inetllimouse 1.1
What DPI setting are you using with the Deathadder? @ 450 CPI/DPI, the sensor will loose perfect control at or around 2.3~ m/s. Granted, I really don't know anyone who is able to trigger that, I would set your CPI/DPI at 1800 (3.91m/s) and half your windows sensitivity from 6/11>3/11. It might not be 1:1 correlation, but it offers more consistency for your needs.
The G500 has a much higher malfunction/perfect control on hard-surfaces. With cloth, it produces random positive and negative acceleration dependent on how fast you're actually moving the cursor.
If you still own this mouse I would advise you to try a hard mat, although positive acceleration is still existent. If you're still able to trigger the malfunction, it might just be your playing style. The Avago 9500 is actually better than any LED based sensor in this regard. (4.2m/s perfect control)
As for the 1.1, it does loose perfect control quite early, but I've personally never been able to trigger the malfunction rate with quick swipes. Lowest sensitivity I've used with that mouse was 2.25. (CS1.6/Source)Edited by Skylit - 2/1/11 at 7:16am
