Suck at FPS games? nV News has a tip for you!

| Posted: Oct 19, 2002 7:50 am

One of the news hounds over at nV News posted a short register tweak for users of Windows XP which promises to making fragging that little bit easier. Hell, we can all do with an extra two or three frags next to our names - me anyway.

 

WindowsXP is a great OS, but one problem I find that bugs the hell out of me is Mouse Acceleration. It's especially irritating when I play FPS games. Luckily there's a simple fix for this. Click the Start Button, go to Run and type Regedit.

 

From there go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Control Panel -> Mouse folder. Find the SmoothMouseXCurve: and SmoothMouseYCurve: binary value's. Here under the binary SmoothMouseXCurve you'll want to change your value's to look like this...

 

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
00 a0 00 00 00 00 00 00
00 40 01 00 00 00 00 00
00 80 02 00 00 00 00 00
00 00 05 00 00 00 00 00

 

And change the "SmoothMouseYCurve" values to this...

 

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
66 a6 02 00 00 00 00 00
cd 4c 05 00 00 00 00 00
a0 99 0a 00 00 00 00 00
38 33 15 00 00 00 00 00

 

After making those changes, reboot your computer. Now load up your favorite FPS game and you should notice you can 'frag' a lot easier!
