Optimal mouse settings for Vista64 SP1 (13 comments)
Posted by Lunatic @ 20:18 CST, 15 February 2009 - iMsg
I recently dared to make the jump to Vista (64bit) SP1, but what about:

1) Altering the mouse USB polling
Who knows a solid working program to change the default 125hz USB polling to 250hz or 500hz? This tweak is very welcome for mice like the Microsoft intellieye ones (WMO, IMO, IME). I used usbhidf under XP32 before, which only adjusted the polling for HID devices, so it wouldnt affect a scanner/printer or other USB connections.

2) Mouse accel
Does this OS still give mouse accel even if you disable "enhanced pointer precision"? For windows XP it did, and we had all these tricks like a reg fix or anirs accelfix which altered a system file. Is this still needed (for these older games)?

3) Windows mouse sensitivity scaler
Does this OS still give bad scaling when choosing a different setting than default (6th notch - 1:1 mapping) at the mouse sensitivity bar? Or is this the fault of DirectX' (directinput filter?)?

4) Any other gaming specific tweaks for this OS?

I know there were previous threads about this, but there was still quite some confusion. And my question is specifically about the 64bit version (since this is the future - utilizing more RAM).

Black MS IntelliMouse Optical 1.1 where? (23 comments)
Posted by Lunatic @ 19:17 CST, 21 December 2008 - iMsg
I know Steelseries used to brand these, but nowerdays they only sell their own Ikari mice. Does anyone know where I can still get one?

Its still my favourite shape and I make good use of the big sidebuttons (perfect for peaking for instance), but the white ones I have are becoming yellow :S

Gaming monitors: good (input lag) tests (121 comments)
Posted by Lunatic @ 23:04 CDT, 13 October 2008 - iMsg
Good reviews for monitors are hard to find, especially when it comes to input lag and response time, which are very important for competitive gamers like us.

In the past I referred to but I just found a new one I would like to share.
Too bad its written in my native language (dutch), made 28/7/2008.

If anyone else knows more websites giving results, please share!

Intel X58 / Core i7 (Nehalem) platform (75 comments)
Posted by Lunatic @ 09:46 CDT, 19 September 2008 - iMsg
Is anyone else going for the next-gen platform? Its revolutionary in many ways, which makes it worth the money for geeks like me ;)

Bloomfield / X58 chipset
- New socket LGA1366, so upgrade options will be open for a long time
- Intel's first integrated memory controller, giving direct links to the system memory (like AMD has)
- Native quadcore design
- Triple Channel DDR3 memory support, with a max. total bandwidth of 32GB/sec
- Front-side bus (FSB) architecture is replaced by the new QuickPath Interconnect (QPI)
- Both ATI Crossfire(X) as nVidia SLI support (when a board is certified by nVidia), in 2x16 or 4x8 lanes
- Integrated physics engine scaling (possibly result of Havok they acquired).
- Simultaneous Multi-Threading, which will allow the quad core chips to work on eight threads simultaneously
- 7 more SSE4 Instructions
- 'Turbo Mode' using a microcontroller which auto-overclocks a core when its on full load in steps of 133Mhz in 0,001ms
- Reported great overclock potencial in general, about the same as with current Yorkfield quadcores.

Available in stores from 17th November 2008:
$284,- Core i7 920 (2,66GHz @ 4.8 GT/s QPI)
$562,- Core i7 940 (2,93GHZ @ 4.8 GT/s QPI)
$999,- Core i7 965 EE (3,2GHZ @ 6.4 GT/s QPI)
these are batch prices

Mousescore update? (38 comments)
Posted by Lunatic @ 16:05 CST, 15 November 2007 - iMsg
Everyone who hopes Sujoy updates the Mousescore 2007 article raise your hand!

I wanna see the new Razer Lachesis and Logitech G9 in it! And what about the updated sensor in the MX518? And the diamondback 3G, does it perform the same as the Deathadder (probably it does)? MS Sidewinder? :#
