GAH!! Somebody else has to have this problem...Ok, I still play quake tf (quakeworld). Anyway, i just installed windows xp prof. Everything is fine EXCEPT when i play tf the mouse does some weird things....I've been told it's some mouse acceleration thing with Win XP. I have no idea how to turn it off. In Counter Strike...there is a command that guys put into the command line that gets rid of the problem...well i dont' know of such a command for quake. Is there someway to fix this...it is so annoying and has totally destroyed my aim...ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED...THANKS!

everyone seems to have mouse problems, just buy a wheel mouse, sometimes old is better!

This is all I did... I had the same problem with XP when I first got it, but I found two ways to get around it. One way is with gamespy.

I recommend using gamespy because its an easy way to get a list of servers and keep your favorites.

1) Click the Gamespy menu
2) Click Games and Filters
3) You will see Halflife checked, double-click "Command Line"
4) You will see HL.exe in the textbox, add the following commands to the textbox -noforcemparms -noforcemaccel, the command line textbox should look like this "HL.exe -noforcemparms -noforcemaccel".
5) Click Ok, and click the other Ok, put in a server ip and go in

Then the mouseaccel should be disabled for Half-Life, and all the Mods You can also add these parameters to you CS Shortcut.

The other method i found is to change the CS shortcut to compatibility mode to win ME..

Hope that helps

Lower your menu connection rate by 1. I'm on DSL, worked for me.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
