    Hi,
    Today I Found a tweak from "yiNXs" (who should get all the credit) wich actually resolves the "xp mouse acceleration bug". Most people who play games like quake3 and counterstrike know what I mean. There were some workarounds, but they never satisfied me.

    If you don't believe it; try it yourself!

    Here is the tweak:

    Background (yiNXs)
    The tweak was found by finding a logic order in the 64-bit hexa-decimal values at the below regestry-entries. When trying different values, you should come up with a diagram wich displays a curve, this is the unwanted acceleration. Adjusting the values that the curve becomes a straight line rosolves the mouse-acceleration.

    1. Safe the following text to a .reg file and doubleclick it:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse]
    "SmoothMouseXCurve"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,a0,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,40,\
    01,00,00,00,00,00,00,80,02,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,05,00,00,00,00,00
    "SmoothMouseYCurve"=hex:00,00,00,00,00,00,00,00,66,a6,02,00,00,00,00,00,cd,4c,\
    05,00,00,00,00,00,a0,99,0a,00,00,00,00,00,38,33,15,00,00,00,00,00

    2. Reboot your computer

    Re:

    Hi,

    Has anyone tried setting this:
    "SmoothMouseXCurve"=hex:

    it shows as "(zero-length binary value)"
    in the registry

    here is the reg file contents:

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse]
    "ActiveWindowTracking"=dword:00000000
    "Beep"="No"
    "DoubleClickHeight"="16"
    "DoubleClickSpeed"="500"
    "DoubleClickWidth"="16"
    "ExtendedSounds"="No"
    "MouseHoverHeight"="4"
    "MouseHoverTime"="400"
    "MouseHoverWidth"="4"
    "MouseSensitivity"="8"
    "MouseThreshold1"="0"
    "MouseThreshold2"="0"
    "MouseTrails"="0"
    "SnapToDefaultButton"="0"
    "SwapMouseButtons"="0"
    "MouseSpeed"="0"
    "SmoothMouseXCurve"=hex:
    "SmoothMouseYCurve"=hex:
    
    
    I am really sensitive person and tried every mouse accel fix on the internet believe me it makes a huge difference.
    My mouse hand's wrist stopped to bother me almost instantly.

    Changing SmoothMouseXCurve to some other value is just another curve of accel. But setting this to non-value seems to turn accel off.

    Best of luck

    Are these tweaks to make the mouse respond faster? I play Combat Arms and always get a delay when I fire. it is a short half second, but it makes all the difference sometimes. Is this my mouse or the game?

    If you think this would be a solution, or have any other ideas, I am open to try them.

    I must note though, I don't mess around much with registry changes, so I will need a step-by-step tutorial to do anything.

    Thanks much

    Do you really need to tweak your mouse?

    Does the sound also delay when you fire or is the sound ok? Does it happen with other FPS games?

    Oh yes, I get it: you are the best of the rest and nothing bad is ever going to happen to you.
    Illnesses such as tunnel syndrom or whatever only happen to other people.
    You are safe here, no worries.

    The sound reacts the same time as the gun fires. I get good reaction while moving the mouse, but I have noticed that when I fire, there is a slight delay. Most noticable while I am doing a lot of action(running, jumping, moving side to side).

    Likewise, when I stand still firing seems to react much faster.

    Does it play better at lower resolution?

    Your system is not top notch right now as you probably know.

    You have checked the usual culprits, drivers etc, right?
    It might be an issue with monitor lag, but since you say when there is less action there is less delay, it looks like a performance issue than anything else.

    Yes, it is probably a performance issue. I know my computer is outdated. I play at a good resolution and there is no delays with the game when there is a lot of action going on. Just when I shoot. So that is why I thought maybe it could be a mouse issue when I read this thread.

    thanks

    Any chance of using a camera to record this?

    Not sure how I would do that.(camera) I am going to the nexon forums and see if there are any related issues. But I am determining that it may just be a computer performance issue.
