  • I have this issue with my mouse, this is my third mouse im going thru due to similar issues. i used the HIDUSBF file to force the polling rate to 250, and now it doesnt jump when i want to select a server, channel, or room etc. but when i get in-game, i'd move my mouse as if to turn around and on-screen i'm still facing front. the only way to get around it is to walk sideways if i gotta go left or right and hope theres no one there. sometimes i'd be pressing the left mouse button to fire, and im just sitting there, no firing whatsoever. anyone have any ideas before i throw my computer off the balcony down 17 floors?

    • I think i may have just solved the issue, now i can return my new mouse and get my money back yay!.

      Im in WinXP but im sure the mouse settings via control panel would more or less be the same. In the Mouse Settings window, i had a tab called Hardware. when i went into it, there were 2 HID Compliant mice listed. i had to disable one (thru trial and error). first one i disabled, my mouse just stopped moving. period. re-enabled it and disabled the other. mouse still works. opened CF went in-game, and i can now turn smoothly.

        OK so i stand corrected. it fixed the issue by about 50%. still unable to turn the character left or right smoothly. any other suggestions that might fix this?

            • Mhhhh...

              MAY YOU SHOULD STOP CREATING HAC.KS for CF CFTEAM at Z8Games.
              YOU CELEBRATE 3 YEARS OF CF - AND WORK ON HAC.KS SAME TIME - its poor. `THE HAC.KS ARE PUBLIC, FREE AVIABLE? - DID YOU THINK ABOUT THAT THIS RUINS YOUR GAME - I WONT SPEND ANYMOE MONEY IN CF UNTIL THE HAC.KS ARE FIXED - MANY PLAYERS THINK IN SAME WAY.
              IT SUCKS. SIMPLY STOP IT.


              Lets see.... you know its not you niveau - .

                          Well, slant has a solution for you!


                          To fix this problem: simply set your usb port polling rate lower! Some of the newer gaming mice have the polling rate set at 1000hz or 500hz default. For some reason (which to my understanding mostly relates to crossfire being a wonky game), the high polling rates will make your aim shake! The lower you set your rate at, the least jittering you will experience!

                          Now before you go crazy and set your rate at 32hz, you must know two things about lowering your polling rate:

                          1. The lower the polling rate, the higher the response time! Here are the exact stats I stole from gotfrag:
                          125hz = 8ms (default)
                          250hz = 4ms
                          500hz = 2ms
                          1000hz = 1ms
                          and so on.

                          2. On some mice, notably older ones which have low malfunction speed (wmo, ime 1.1a, ime 3.0, mx300, mx500, etc), the lowering of the polling rate will also lower your "perfect control" speed. For example, on the ime 3.0 and 1.1a clocked at 125hz, the mouse will lose perfect control at around 1 m/s, a speed which you will often hit if you game at low sensitivity. When you clock it at 1000hz, however, the "perfect control" speed zone will upgrade to 1.6 m/s, which is rather acceptable to low sensitivity gamers.

                          The trick with these mice is finding the balance between jittering and responsiveness/malfunction speed
                          A wise man told me 250hz is a happy compromise, and that is the polling rate i recommend for most mice, as it offers very slight jittering and still delivers good responsiveness at a higher malfunction speed.

                          Make note that most newer gaming-grade mice have very high malfunction speed, even at low polling rates, so you may not even have to worry about that!

                          Some newer mice also have polling rate changing options in their driver, so that makes it easy to modify and play around with. For the rest of you mortals, I will link to the programs I used to change my polling rate and verify it (Disclaimer: playing with your polling rate may lower the life expectancy of your hardware or fry your mouse or usb port, so I will not be held responsible for what you kids do to your computers!):

                          Hidusbf, used to modify your polling rate can be downloaded here.

                          Mouse rate checker, used to verify what polling rate your port is effectively functioning at, can be found here.

                          On a final note, I do believe this is known by some people, but it seems to me like most of the community is in the dark concerning this, as I was until very recently. It helped my aiming (especially long range) immensely and I do believe many would benefit from this.
                          I would also like to point out that crossfire possesses some VERY odd acceleration issues, which I think should be brought to the attention of the community so that we may unite to force the developers to fix the aggravatingly high positive and negative acceleration present in the game coding.

                          If you have any questions, feel free to ask away in here, and I will answer to the best of my (rather limited) faculties.
                          Never knew there was a 10k dpi mouse lolol...

                              • Doesn't fix the issue

                                I tried all this, It doesn't fix my mouse lag issue...

                                it's the damn server.
                                But it'll work for others so i can't be a critique.
