    Yes, i use an optical mouse. Logitech.

    my mouse sensitivity is set somewhere between 11 and 25, depending on the map.

    I believe the sensitivity changes depending on your mouse/drivers.
    A quarter-inch movement turns me 90 degrees, but my sensitivity is only at 3.

    Yep, it does. It's something mor than a quarter inch for me to turn 90 degrees, but not much. Ingame mouse sensitivity for me is 2.5. Have my desktop sensitivity set fairly high, though.

    Yeah, using an optical.

    I use 4.5 with my Logitech MX 700. And I activated the ingame speed in the mouse options!

    No idea what the exact number is that I'm using, but it'll be high. I turn mouse sensitivty to full in almost every game I play.

    Cheaters all over, using high sensitivity to still be able to turn comfy when paralyzed!
    (The default setting is or was 11 which it certainly isn't in UT, so you probably have company among the devs..)

    I used to use really high sensitivity, always trying to increase it a little more.

    I have however learned that when it comes to games higher is most definitely not better.

    My sensitivity is set so high I don't have to move my mouse. Wait, thats because I have a logitech trackball. No mousemat, no moving it, picking it up and taking it back and moving it again. With a flick of my thumb I can turn 360. I like my trackball.

    Remember what the CS players told you, Yenz: if you want to be a more accurate shooter, forget about mouse sensitivity. Instead, randomly capitalize your name to become YeNzArIlL!

    I use a Logitech Trackman Marble Wheel, with my sensitivity set to 5.75. I've always preferred trackballs to mice. Burn the mouse users!


    Well, it -kinda- could be a mouse he's holding (sorta).

    Forgive my ignorance, but what the hell is a track-ball?!?

  28. #28
    A trackball is just like a mouse, but rather than move the entire unit, your fingers or thumb move the ball. Very nice to use I find.

    I use MS Trackball Explorer, such a nice space saver.

    I use 11 on my Logitech Marble mouse(Trackball. And like most optical)

    What is a track ball? Well mine looks like this, thats you typical finger tip operated type layout. But there are also one's that use your thumb like the Logitech Trackman Wheel or the Microsoft Trackball Optical.

    But what most people think of when they think "Trackball" is something more like this, which is to be honest is your standard type of trackball. However they have come along way and are my personal perference over a normal mouse any day(and most have been optical for quite a long while as well. If not longer than standard mice)

    The companies that make the mostTrackballs are basicly Kensington and Logitech. But Microsoft does make 2 different ones

    I did use a trackball once to play quake on and I picked it up pretty quickly... I do have one lying about at home but it's not optical, definatly something I may try because I currently use my mouse on the arm of a chair (not much room)
