New to K/B and Mouse, need help

#1SenkoyPosted 8/25/2013 9:41:32 PM
I got a G700 gaming mouse and still using an old but pretty good k/b but I'm having some issues while playing Bioshock 2.

First, the mouse seems kinda jittery. When I'm trying to fine aim it shakes a bit. I've lowered the sensitivity all the way and messed with the DPi settings but I can't seem to get it to work right just right. I have the DPi at 1800 right now and I had it at about 3600 but I think it was worse then, but I'm not even sure. I'm playing the game at 1080p if that makes any difference. Any tips?

As for the keyboard, when i'm holding w to move forward and then i press a or d to move diagonally, when I let go of one of them, my character will only take about a step or two further then stop. I have to let go of w and press it again to move. Sometimes it happens for unknown reason, my character stops moving and i have to let go of w and press it again to start moving. How can I fix this?

Thanks.

Have you got the latest Logitech software for your mouse?

The sensor on that mouse, try using a different surface.

Have you tried blowing out the sensor with compressed air? Also make sure the mouse pad is free and clear of any debris that could interfere with the sensor?

Mice are a PITA sometimes to calibrate right. Between DPI, windows settings, mouse sensitivity in game, mouse acceleration etc. First of all, make sure any mouse acceleration is turned off. In games, it might straight up say "mouse acceleration". In Windows it is "enhanced precision". What mouse acceleration does is... well kind of hard to explain. Image if you move your mouse one inch on your mouse pad, it moves 4 inches on your screen. Now image you moved your mouse 2 inches on the pad. You would think that it moves 8 inches due to simple math, right? Mouse acceleration will make quick movements go more, so if you quickly move 2 inches, it will be 10 on the screen, not 8 ( examples, not real numbers ).

Also it is generally accepted that you put the mouse sensitivity in Windows to 6 ( right in the middle ) and never change it. And then the thing is that all these mice have super high DPI that you just DON'T need. Mine goes pretty high, but I set it around 1500 DPI and boost up the game settings a little bit to adjust. You can either put the game to lowest sensitivity and adjust DPI, or work the other way around, put it at a sensible DPI ( 500-1500, yes, sometimes 500 DPI can work very well ) and adjust in game. The latter is what I choose. Just have to play around. Make sure that you do what I said above, turn off any mouse acceleration and make sure Windows settings is right in the middle.

I've tried different surfaces and that didn't help. I'll try an even lower DPI and see how that goes. I'll turn off mouse acceleration as well. I didn't know what it was so I left it on.

Does anyone have a solution to the keyboard issue? It's even more annoying than the mouse.

Thanks.

Yeh, buy a better keyboard... It's called NKRO, and your keyboard doesn't have it.

There are a bunch of things that could be happening with the mouse. Changing surface would be an obvious recommendation, but I also know that the G700 has a history of problems like this. What you are experiencing sounds like the dreaded "small movement problem" . Here is a 14 page thread on it on the logitech forum:
http://forums.logitech.com/t5/G-series-Gaming-Mice/G700-and-small-mouse-movements/td-p/482089
This is why I like to stick to simple mice with good sensors and no unnecessary frills. As far as I know, almost every model of wireless mouse has had problems. That includes mice like the mamba.

The problem with the keyboard sounds like one that you can not address, but rather you need to get a better keyboard. I do not know what keyboard you have, and you can try updating the drivers. However, there are a lot of keyboards that are not designed to handle input of multiple simultaneous key-presses. Better keyboards, gaming or non-gaming have something called key rollover (KRO). Anything over 4 key rollover should suffice for pretty much all purposes.
