    For counterstrike

    Mouse Acceleration problems FIX for Counterstrike :

    HL.exe -noforcemparms

    put that after Hl.exe command line in Gamespy or what ever u use to exe program


    info :

    -noforcemaccel
    Type: Parameter

    Description: Disable the forcing of mouse acceleration on startup.

    -noforcemparms
    Type: Parameter

    Description: Disable the forcing of mouse parameters on startup.

    -noforcemspd
    Type: Parameter

    Description: Disable the forcing of mouse speed on startup.


    -OR-
    regedit

    - HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse

    - change:

    MouseSensitivity "0"
    MouseSpeed "1"
    MouseThreshold1 "7"
    MouseThreshold2 "8"

    i think its almost the same feeling as in win/me
    (for low mouse-acc, and middle mouse-speed)

    The MouseAccelleration (None, Low, Medium and High) option is NOT available
    in Windows XP. For some unknown reason MS decided to remove this feature and
    implement it as a built-in mouse accelleration instead. So...mouse
    accelleration is ALWAYS on in Windows XP (I think it's at medium speed).

    If you have a Logitech Mouse and install their MouseWare the Mouse
    Accelleration option will be available. BUT...that mouse accelleration is
    added on top of the built-in mouse accelleration (which will make the mouse
    accelleration even worse unless you select 'none' in the logitech mouse
    properties).

    The people who claims that they don't have any accelleration have probably
    always played with some dregree of accelleration. That's why they don't
    *feel* anything different. But since the accelleration is built-in it is
    ALWAYS there.

    Mouse acceleration in WinXP is set in Control Panel

    Select the mouse icon and go into one of the property windows. It's there. I'm using the Microsoft optical mouse with Intellipoint ver. 4 software that came with it. I have acceleration set to high, but you can set it to any level you want. Not sure exactly what tab to look under since I'm not at that computer right now, but it's adjustable...ya just gotta look for it. g/l
