Mouse lag and acceleration solution

hey gamers, if you're like me then you know of the sluggish feeling of mouse on the mac. it especially hurts when playing games like counter strike: source and team fortress 2 (and i've heard that a lot of people complain playing starcraft 2). Well this man not only deduced the problem (lag, not just acceleration) but he has created a fix for it, namely 'smoothmouse'.

here is the link to download, however you do need to join the forum:


and here is his article about the mouse lag


i haven't tried it yet on games, only general use.


p.s i can feel the difference with general use, it feels alot snappier. Also you have to uninstall any other mouse fixes you've installed as well as your mouse drivers.
