Hello

I have a 24" monitor. But I prefer to play on a smaller screen. I play DotA 2. So I like the screen to be smaller so I have more overview of the map.

I have started playing with scaling. So there is a black area so it makes screen around 15-16". But the mouse is behaving differently (No I am not talking about sensitivity, I am talking about odd behavior), and I can feel it. So I started to test it out.

I put a defined square on my mousepad. And started with cursor in middle of screen. And began to move my mouse over everywhere within the square, to end up on the same spot with my hand. Turns out: Cursor is now much further down, almost on bottom of screen.

I can feel this in all games.
And when I try on my laptop, the cursor feels perfect like it should be.

I tried several mice. They all behave similar on my desktop. All behave perfect on laptop. So it is my desktop that is the problem for sure.

How do I solve this?
Reset USB ports?

It won't be a hardware issue (ie: USB ports). They will either work or they won't.

Movement issues would be the mouse itself. Or as you noted, the sensitivity (which can be adjusted within Windows and/or via the mouse software). Although sensitivity would affect all movement, not just one direction. As far as I know, there isn't anything on the PC side which would only affect mouse movement in one direction.

I've not seen this before. I've asked other Staff to comment if they have any ideas.

This sounds like an artifact of the scaling. Actual movement vs what you perceive on-screen is different because of the scaling. It's like when you see a movie formatted to 4:3 from the 16:9 original. It makes it look like the picture is waving.

If you really want a small display area you're better going with a true 15-16" monitor and do NOT use scaling.

Actually I feel it is still there when not having scaling. Tried it just to be sure and I can feel it there too. Sorry for this:

Is there anything I can do?
It feels laggy and not 1:1 nor same sensitivity in horizontal vs vertical

The highest dpi capable mouse could test whether dpi is the reason for your inquiry. They're quite expensive.

NB

I have a clue to what might be going on.
When I watch streams. They tend to lag, like fps-lag.
This did not happen when having full screen.

edit: happens in non scaling mode as well

Gigabyte GHOST M8000X rates at 6000dpi. Also controls vertical and horizontal speeds separately. Costs about $50.00.

This and mouse movement are two separate issues.

Flip your Zowie over and see if those adjustments make a difference.

Tried it on desktop. Super hard. On all sensitivities. It is ridiculous...

I don't know what is wrong...

In your screen menu, try making an adjustment using the Geometry Button.

What resolution are you using? Did you install the proper driver?
