Go to \Users\[Username]\My Documents\My Games\Skyrim Open the SkyrimPrefs.ini file with notepad Find the line bMouseAcceleration=1 (located under [Controls]) (If there is no line, add it) Replace the 1 with a 0 Save the file (make sure you don't accidentally save it as SkyrimPrefs.ini.txt)

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 ...

The suggested SkyrimPrefs.ini i was using was the wrong one. Using Process Monitor i was able to figure out that the correct one is: %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini e.g. C:\Users\Ian\Documents\My Games\Skyrim\SkyrimPrefs.ini Changing [Controls]\fMouseHeadingSensitivity to fMouseHeadingSensitivity=0.1250 (new) ...

Under [controls] in Skyrim.ini (Found in "My Documents\My Games\Skyrim") there are two entries. fMouseHeadingYScale=0.0100 fMouseHeadingXScale=0.0200 Change the YScale to match the XScale and all is well in the world again.

Try going into 'Control Panel' through the start menu, and accessing the 'Mouse' option. Under the 'Pointer Options' tab, uncheck 'Display pointer trails' and press 'Apply'. (this seems to be a common issue) Under the 'Pointers' tab, uncheck 'Enable pointer shadow'. If you are running Windows 7, or possibly Vista (not sure about vista), go into the '...

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

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

This is an old question, but I suffer from wrist problems (and have for probably 10 years now) so I feel like I should share my experiences. The first thing I want to say is - if you are experiencing pain, go and talk to a doctor. Keep talking to doctors until someone acknowledges that wrist pain is a serious condition and they take you seriously. This ...

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.

There are two fixes for mouse lag. There's the one you mentioned, which you should use. There's also this one: Disable mouse smoothing Go to your Steam Directory, then steamapps, common, skyrim and select Skyrim again. Create a backup of the SkyrimPrefs.ini file. Open the file, then scroll down to where it says [Controls] and find ...

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 ...

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'm seeing similar issues. Vsync doesn't do a lot for me. Seems to me: Triple buffering can really tax some systems and make input unresponsive. I assume the game honors the setting you choose, but definitely try turning that off. There's a negative mouse acceleration (I personally dislike the feel- like a neck brace or eye surgery). Normally this is ...

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 ...

The answer Lemmings19 gave might indeed fix the issue. But I have had a similar issue and the above fix still did not work. However, my issue was solved by playing the game (it was a rather old one) in compatibility mode. To do this follow the following steps: Right click the game's .exe file. Go to properties Go to the compatibility Check Run this ...

I had the same problem that you are experiencing and determined that the source of the problem lies with the mouse (for me anyhow). I have the razor naga, and after turning off acceleration in skyrim and also turning off vsync I experienced the same lag. When i would move the mouse rapidly the game could not keep up. After thinking about it I found that the ...

Yes, there is an acceleration setting, it's in the line: seta cl_mouseAccel "0" in the config file, stored in: \Steam\steamapps\common\call of duty modern warfare 3\players2 (if you don't use Steam, the route will be different, of course) That didn't work for me, since it was already set to 0. This is what did the trick: With the game running, Task Manager -...

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 ...

You might still consider mice, as there are Trackball mice which are similar to normal mouse precision but operate in a different way: This for example is the "Logitech M570 Trackball". Basically instead of moving the mouse on your table you move the Trackball with your thumb. Your shoulder does not move a bit. There was once a top professional Counter ...

A quick search reveals several such questions about this setup and the functionality you request for WoW and other MMOs. The only consistent solution that seems prevalent and that works for most it seems is the use of AutoHotkey. Here's a WoW related thread of suggested setup.

If you want to use desktop mouse speed, you should uncheck "Enable Mouse Sensitivity" under Options -> Controls.

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 ...

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) ...

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 ...
