One more question, is the windows pointer discussion just a myth or should I set the DA to 1800 DPI, windows sens to 6th notch and then tweak the ingame sens from there?
Windows sensitivity only matters if your game doesn't take raw mouse input. If your game does use raw mouse input, then you can set your windows sens to whatever you want. There's an easy way to test whether your game does or doesn't. Set your mouse DPI to its highest setting and set the windows sens to 1/11. It should be ridiculously slow when browsing Windows. Then load up your game and move your mouse around. If your cursor starts flying around again when your in the main menu, congratulations, your game takes raw mouse input. If it's still slow, then yeah, keep it at 6/11.
But for me, 1800 DPI is too fast for anything, so I use 450 DPI.Edited by cuad - 4/2/11 at 3:04pm
