I heard there's an option in Universal Access to limit the mouse's maximum cursor speed.

Does that apply to games as well ? Anyone try ?

Maybe messing up with that slider might enable a more linear and windows-like mouse acceleration.

OS X's mouse acceleration is known to be really jumpy and annoying. I got used to it for desktop and strategy games (still a bit annoying) but for FPS games they're just unplayable.

Huh? I don't find that option.

That's only talking about Mouse Keys.

Oh, yes. Nevermind. >_< False hope.

After trying Lion DP2, I'm definitely liking the mouse movement better than Snow Leopard (using my Magic Mouse). The response seems more linear, which is a major improvement over the crap SL acceleration curve.

The maximum pointer speed has also been raised, compared to SL.

That's good news. Thanks.

Did you try it in games ?
