Mouse sensitivity too high in most games

  • Mouse sensitivity too high in most games mo.

    It seems like in pretty much every game (examples are Skyrim, Deus Ex HR, Borderlands 2, CoD: Black Ops, PlanetSide 2, Far Cry 3), I have to reduce the mouse sensitivity slider to zero or almost zero, and rarely, even that's still too sensitive.

    I use a logitech G700 mouse, on the medium ( 3 out of 5) hardware sensitivity setting. This setting works fine in windows (and games where I'm just moving a cursor around, like Civilization V). I could make a point to always lower the hardware sensitivity when I start a game, but I feel like that's a hack and there should be a better solution. I don't have all that extra software for the mouse installed. I just let windows auto detect and install a driver for it.

    In Windows, I use the fourth-lowest sensitivity, and have "Enhance Pointer Precision" unchecked.

    My video card is an nVidia 560 Ti.

    It wasn't like this before, but I'm not sure if it began when I got this mouse, when I moved from Win XP to Win 7, or when I got this video card (or maybe it's even been doing it for my last two video cards - the previous one being a Radeon HD 5770).

    Is there something I can do so I can use reasonable settings in games?

  • If you install the Logitech Gaming Software drivers, you can have it automatically change the dpi and sensitivity based on which game you're launching. That may be the most elegant solution.

  • For comparison, I noticed in Blizzard's other game, World of Warcraft, you can explicitly specify in a configuration file (C:/Program Files/World of Warcraft/WTF/config.wtf) to use OpenGL (SET gxApi "OpenGL"). Does this ability exist in Starcraft 2? I found the configuration file (.../My Documents/Starcraft II/variables.txt) but I don't see a line I can modify to tell it to use OpenGL. I know that running the game on Mac requires you to use OpenGl and not DirectX, however, can I use the OpenGL library instead of DirectX9 on Windows? I don't know if the technical details of my problem

  • I just started X3: Albion Prelude and the mouse cursor is just far too slow. I have to move the mouse across almost the complete mouse pad to get from one end of the screen to the other side. My Windows mouse acceleration setting is already almost at the maximum, and I found no setting inside X3 that I could adjust. Is there any way I can make the mouse faster inside X3?

I have also been advised to disable write combining (I don't know what is this) but it doesn't do anything.

  • (when the game freezes) are random: it can happen two minutes into joining a game or it can happen 15 minutes into it. It even occurs at times when I'm just in the game menu and before I've joined... if that is a solution. It's my first CoD game, and at this point it's looking like it'll be my last as well. EDIT: Forgot to mention - after BO2 locks up then I have to end task it to get rid of it. After having end-tasked it then my network connection is jacked up... and bad. I can't even get to the internet when it happens and I have to completely reboot my machine to fix the problem.

  • I am trying to configure any game within Steam, either Call of Duty Black Ops, Modern Warfare 3, or Fallout New Vegas, to correctly use my surround setup of three monitors. Problem is, the single-screen image gets stretched across the three monitors rather than getting more field of view on the two side screens. Is there something I'm missing either when configuring the video card or the game? My hardware: One EVGA GTX 660 Card. Three Hanns 28" HZ281 monitors plugged in, two to the DVI ports, one to the HDMI.

But just recently few days ago when I started the game, the game would constantly freeze for 1-2 seconds every 15-20 seconds, and then start moving again very quickly to catch up with the things that happened during the freeze. I haven't changed my graphics card drivers, or did any hardware changes. All I did was install Path of Exile, but I'm not sure
