Mouse sensitivtiy
Hello guys, I need your help :) I've just read topic "400 dpi" when some guy said that pros are playing on 400 dpi because of they want to solve accel problem etc blah blah, but it's not the point of this topic. I turned on cs, to check if I feel any difference, and if it's true. But what I noticed, is when I changed dpi from 800, to 400, and I increased twice my in-game sensitivity from 1.7 to 3.5, it wasn't the same sensitivity. I mean, mouse was going faster, than at my previous settings, i thought, that it should work with same speed, but as I see - not.

First thing, but I think answer is "yes, obviously" - is it normal that mouse works on different speeds, when I reduced twice one value, and increased twice other value?

Second thing, I think that's why I had problems with fast turning around on dm - I played with lower sens than the others, meanwhile, I thought it's the same. One guy said that f0rest plays on 400 dpi, 6/11 and 3.5 - is it true?

I want you to guys say what's --> WINDOWS SENSITIVITY, IN-GAME SENS, DPI, and If you can - mouse, but mouse is the least important thing <--

If you won't say one of these 3 vslues, it's useless. THANK YOU.

After all, sorry for my english, hope it's not that bad =)

Okay, just tell me why are they all playing on 400 dpi ;p And for example, edward 400 dpi, 6/11 and 3.smth, when he's playing www.missionred.com, his mouse has completely different speed, so...
2012-05-01 20:36:51
because you can change dpi with mouse's button... in game he mights use 400 dpi but in windows u dont know. Like khrystal he is using 800 dpi but in windows he uses 3600 ...
2012-05-01 20:51:49
windows-3600???wtf???
2012-05-01 20:56:39
3600 dpi on mouse 3/11 windows sens.
2012-05-01 21:17:35
most professional players use the same settings for counter-strike...
2012-05-01 21:22:29

not fake...and this one doesn't specify his mouse settings...

this one is official. join the group read the comments.

lol...but no mouse settings...who has time to join the group?...hahaha...
2012-05-02 13:25:23
I don't understand all these values, and as I said, it's not the main thing I'm asking for :) But TY anyway.
2012-05-01 19:42:39
800dpi = 1.7
400dpi = 1.7 * 2 = 3.4

and senstivity should be the same, but with 800dpi you will get less neg accel but worse malfunction speed.
2012-05-01 19:50:34
useful thing :)
2012-05-01 19:56:21
Yeah that blah blah was mine...and if you reduce your dpi by half then doubling your in-game sensitivity will not help sir...please read and try this...

http://www.overclock.net/t/173255/cs-s-mouse-optim..

and yes f0rest has the same settings as mentioned by you...

I play with Razer Deathadder(black edition)...
DPI=450(lowest availible)
Windows sensitivity=6/11
In Game Sensitivity=2.4...

PS..the above mentioned link works for counter strike 1.6 too...
2012-05-01 20:01:11
Please, I don't understand it in polish, and you want me to read it in eng ;D And even if I want to, sentences are cut, don't know why. Ehhh I always get angry when it's about mouse sens or smth... Now I'm totally confused, 400 dpi + 3.5 is the same sens as 800 dpi + 1.7 ... I checked it few times, I'm always doing 270 turn on the same distance of mousepad... Just tell me why are pros playing on 400 dpi... ;d
2012-05-01 20:24:51
no negative acceleration at 400 dpi...thats why...
2012-05-01 20:48:07
Less, not no.
2012-05-01 20:54:00
negligible...tends to zero...XD
2012-05-01 20:55:58
Yes.
2012-05-01 20:56:38
And if you still want answer ma questions, what about training on missionred or aim400kg.ru? :P Does it have sense when you have completely different speeds in cs and wind?
2012-05-01 21:04:26
Don't train on sites, but with bots on jeason mode.
2012-05-01 21:06:07
dude...set your mouse at 400 dpi and try different sensitivity....and get it over with...even if i change my dpi...i can find my sensitivity in seconds...u should try too...
2012-05-01 21:06:18
I see no difference on 400 dpi, negative acceleration is as big as on 800 dpi, I think. And I wasn't asking about how to find your sens after changing dpi, but nevermind :p
2012-05-01 21:31:54
i gave you the link sir...let me post it again...and you are wrong there's a difference probably u dont feel it...

read this...carefully...
2012-05-01 21:34:40
didn't understand you...?
2012-05-01 21:07:41
just try all settings with you own mouse....you will definitely the best one in 2-3 days...:X..why making a thread 4 this
2012-05-01 20:06:57
I use kinzu... and the driver for the mouse automatically synchs the windows sens with the driver sens... I think mine's on the 3rd dot. :D and 800 cpi.
And in game my sens is 2.5... i don't know... it's fine by me... I feel confortable and I'm not having any problem with turning fast if someone is shooting at me from behind.

It's because Kinzu has hardware positive acceleration.

windows sens: default
Kinzu Dpis: 800
In-Game sens: 3.5

if u want to get rid of accel at driver level download accelfix.exe...(which i use).. or for win 7 google Mark C accelfix. should be something.

reg fixes do not fix the problem, they just cover it up badly. -noforcecmds don't either.

the 400dpi thing has to do w/ the resolution u play in... and excessive dpi leads to negative accel. @ 640 res the "Recommended dpi" is around 300ish if i recall.

technically u should play on the DPI closest to your resolution.. meaning 1 pixel move = 1 mouse dpi.

for me i use 800dpi, mx518, 6/11 windows, accelfix.exe, 1.35 in game.. which equals about 7.250" = 180degrees

so 90degrees = 3.6125" (cs is 90degree FOV)
in game res of 640 (width corresponds to FOV)
recommended DPI: 640 / 3.6125 = 177 DPI
recommended DPI: 800 / 3.6125 = 221 DPI
recommended DPI: 1024 / 3.6125 = 283 DPI




here's a good article on mouse comparisons..
