    ^6 year bump.

    "Pointer speed settings above the default 6/11 notch are considered very inconsistent and also cause unit skipping, and therefore should not be used...Most settings under 6/11 while useable (excepting 5/11 which has some inconsistencies) are less desirable than 6/11 as they cannot produce 1:1 tracking. Below are the multipliers for each setting and their general performance output:"

    Windows Sensitivity Raw Input Count Multiplier Effect
    1/11 0.03125 ok
    2/11 0.0625 ok
    3/11 0.25 ok
    4/11 0.5 ok
    5/11 0.75 every 4th count is ignored = inconsistent
    6/11 1.0 optimal setting
    7/11 1.5 every 2nd count registers as 2 counts of movement = inconsistent + unit skipping
    8/11 2.0 unit skipping
    9/11 2.5 inconsistent + unit skipping
    10/11 3.0 unit skipping
    11/11 3.5 inconsistent + unit skipping

      And don't forget Mark C's Mouse Fix to remove the Windows OS mouse acceleration:

      And this explains a lot about mouse tweaking. Written for CS:S but applies to any FPS:

        FunTimez is 100% correct. In addition to being a 6yr bump they PMed me... lol. Another note, per the link provided in the quoted post below ("Source"), make sure to use MarkC instead of CPL for the mousefix file. (CPL will only work under Windows XP, which is no longer supported by MS, 6 years later... hahaha) Happy fragging!

          Bump again. I've applied all of the settings in the first post and disabled acceleration in the .ini, but the mouse still feels horrible compared to UT04 and even the alpha UT4. Is there anything else that can be done? I'm guessing the acceleration fix isn't needed as the game came out after Vista, though strangely enough I never had any complaints about the mouse in UT99 under Windows 7 without that fix. I use a Logitech G400 set to 1300 DPI and 500 polling rate, for reference.
