Making your new mouse work for you I found for a long while after getting a new mouse I used to have this issue. However unfortunately, though it does improve with practice I found generally it is more necessary to reconfigure the new mouse. Specifically, though many mice offer very high DPI, this does not actually help your game-play at all unless your ...

M1 is the left mouse button. Click it to attack. Have fun!

Open your console and use this command dota_camera_disable_zoom "1". This will disable the zoom entirely. To open the console you need to rightclick your DotA2 in steam and go to properties-> set launch options. There you need to add -console and start DotA2. If this resets every time you start DotA2: Open your DotA 2 Folder (...\SteamApps\common\dota 2 ...

There are actually two sets of settings that can be configured in the Cyborg Profile Editor, the 'Sensitivity Settings' and 'Programming'. Sensitivity settings allows you to switch DPI settings on the fly, and is operated by the rocker switch just below the middle mouse button while the current setting is shown on the mouse with the array of four lights to ...

Buying a new mouse does not mean you must change your sensitivity. You should maintain the same sensitivity when going to a new mouse so your gameplay remains the same. That said... if you do want to change your actual sensitivity than you will only improve after spending a lot of time with your new sensitivity. I would recommend doing some "mouse ...

The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Page on Skyrim's controls even mentions this issue with mice like the Apple Magic Mouse: Dual Cast: Attack with both hands simultaneously. If the same spell is assigned to both hands and you have unlocked the appropriate Dual Casting perk, a more powerful version of the spell is cast. If your mouse doesn't support left click + ...

I found a consistent workaround to this issue but for the life of me I can't figure out how to login to the Stardock forum to contribute there. Maybe this'll help someone. I hope google notices the relevance. Anyway, here's how you can get the cursor to lock into the game screen: Start the game Go to options Go to the Video tab Check the "Use Window ...

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.

Mouse movement interpretation can be vastly different between different game-engines, and often even between different games using the same engine. There is no standard for mouse sensitivity, so the only way to measure it is to use our own impression. When I start a new FPS game, the first thing I do to calibrate the mouse sensitivity is: close my eyes ...

Go into Options > Controls and turn Touchscreen Mode to OFF.

Here's my formula: items in order from what I perceive to be most helpful to least helpful. Pen input exclusively. Ditch the mouse. Wacom is the goto brand for tablets. The bigger the device, the better. I should note that Pen devices usually have an "absolute position" mode, and an "xy" mode. "Absolute position" won't work with certain FPS games that ...

I (being a great Razer fan) looked this question up on the Razer website. THIS is what I found. In a nutshell: Advantages of the palm grip: the user is able to move the mouse at higher speeds, and achieve higher Inches Per Second (IPS) ratings. The palm grip is also considered one of the most comfortable grip styles for gaming where the gamer is able to ...

Tracking technology Laser mice are generally the best, though their extreme precision occasionally causes problems with awkward surfaces. But I play on a rough wooden table with my laser mouse and I rarely notice when I'm moving over the wood instead of my mousepad. Optical doesn't work well with reflective or black surfaces. I'm not really sure what the ...

If you are trying to run dosbox in a virtualbox Ubuntu host, I had the same issue and it was driving me crazy. The mouse would just get stuck in a corner and wouldn't move except to the other corners. Here's the solution I found: Make a text file and put this in it: #!/bin/bash export SDL_VIDEO_X11_DGAMOUSE=0 dosbox Save it on your desktop or somewhere ...

So let me get this straight... The task is really simple: if you have a full-screen program open (essentially a game), lock the mouse to the main monitor. If the game is closed or minimized, unlock the mouse automatically. At the time of writing, none of the free programs listed here do this, and the only program which claims that can do it costs $10. So ...

The issue you're describing shouldn't happen, no matter what configuration you're using. Therefore, I assume it's a bug in StarCraft 2. You can only wait for Blizzard to fix that bug for the OSX version of the game. Luckily, most if not all bugs related to alt-tabbing can be resolved by playing in windowed mode. StarCraft 2 offers a Windowed (Fullscreen) ...

This can be caused by a setting in the "f.lux" software (at least, it was for me). This could be fixed if you turn off "Software mouse cursor when needed (fixes "white cursor").

While I can't find any resource to specifically mention ergonomic placement in the context of gaming, there are definitely keyboard and mouse positions that would increase muscle stress and fatigue over a long period of time (or frenetic activity like gaming). The U.S. OSHA has an article on keyboard placement. A quick search also found another one on ...

The plain answer is no. Yes, there are a few technical tricks to do this using Windows tools (Power Shell scripts for example), but there is no ingame feature for this for a reason. Anything that positions or moves the mouse automatically is prohibited by Blizzard. You can use a Windows feature to find your cursor more easily, though. Control Panel ->...

Your problem is occurring because the current Apple Mouse can only click one button at a time, there isn't a split in the middle. The simplest solution is to re-map your controls to perform the left hand function with a keyboard key. I personally use the 'V' key. Like that, you can use your shield/secondary weapon, and dual cast spells or dual wield ...

Disable VBox mouse integration from VBox config

There is a fix for that called Dead Space Mouse Fix. This will give you raw mouse input, it changes everything! I would also suggest to use Widescreen Fixer software to get wider FOV.

All games use completely different interpretations of the sensitivity slider (if there even is a sensitivity slider). Battlefield 3 even, much to my annoyance, makes extreme differences in sensitivity between vehicle aiming and on-foot aiming. You'll simply have to fuss with both (or more) games to try and get the sensitivities close enough. Easiest way to ...

Here is a reddit post about the same issue and how to fix it: I've had a small issue with Terraria for a long time now: while I have the a or d key held down (to move), I sometimes can't move my mouse cursor. I'm on a laptop, and I have a feeling that may be linked to it. There is a way to temporarily fix it by opening and closing my inventory, but it feels ...

Well it's pretty simple: You are faster (Watch the mouse movements of Wildturtle for example) The cool thing is: The faster you move your mouse, the better your overview of the game is. You can basically "scout" The whole map with a fast mouse and then just hit space again to focus back on your character in under a second (you have to be able to realise ...

It depends on the game. You will have trouble with anything requiring accurate use of analog sticks. The mouse will not always help because dual analog stick games exist on some of these platforms. Ideally you would want to get something like a USB 360 controller.

In conjunction with Alok's answer, and as you suggested in the OP, "psychological discomfort" can play a part in this as well. Basically, when playing, there can be just one tiny feeling that can set the whole thing off, and this is usually caused by being stationary for too long. Perhaps a feeling in your wrist leaning on the edge of the desk - causing you ...

The price of the mouse does not have anything to do with that. It depends on several factors, where a cheap mouse can be as good as an expensive one. The factors are: Surface quality DPI Laser/optical Drag resistance You The DPI is the most important setting. A new DPI setting will always need some getting used to. So if you want to practice a new setting,...

From an answer from one of the developers of Dolphin (archive): This is a bug in the current version of Dolphin. It only affects hybrid Wiimote mode, emulated Wiimote mode works.

Bizarre solution to the problem, but it appears to work. Use a mouse to navigate to your locker, and select a dance. Then hold the touchpad on the PS4 controller like the "hold to chat" at the bottom of the screen suggests. Then press the O button on the controller. The mouse pointer disappears and the controller works again.
