    Hi, I'm using a Logitech MX700 mouse and the drivers I downloaded online for it don't let me turn off mouse acceleration.

    Playing Starcraft2 with acceleration is next to impossible, no precision for quick actions.

    Any ideas on how to turn it off?

    Are you not able to turn it down either in your OS X Preferences or in the SC2 menu?

    there's no 100% perfect solution sadly. things like usboverdrive can turn it off in theory, but sc2 doesn't play nice with them. I've tried many methods and these days tbh i usually play sc2 under bootcamp. :eek:

    If they are still using a Logitech Control Panel and you don't have it installed, you need to download it. Controls are there that I believe control acceleration.

    Doesn't it has 'Mouse acceleration fix' in Logitech drivers like Microsoft Intellipoint for Microsoft's mice?

    I'm using Microsoft Intellimouse for now and it nicely overrides default Mac mouse behaviour, 100% genuine like in Windows. If I change Microsoft's mouse to Logitech G500, will I lose such option or not? I saw that it has similar option in Logitech Control Center for Mac, but haven't ever heard how does it works. Any comments from Logitech owners, please? Is it real to reproduce original Windows mouse behavior with Logitech drivers (like it done for Microsoft with it's own drivers) or I still be needed to use Steermouse/USBoverride, etc?.

    If anybody has Logitech mouse, give me a note please: whether Logitech mouse driver has mouse acceleration override for Mac (which makes mouse acceleration similar to Windows's) or not.

    No, it doesn't.

    The best overall solution is SteerMouse.

    I assume you did the changes in windows? Switch back to windows change it there, then restart. see if that works. if anything uninstall the drivers.

    Yep. I am currently using USB Overdrive but I also own Steermouse. I wish Apple would at least acknowledge how poor their mouse handlers are in OSX. But, you can't get a problem solved that Apple contends doesn't exist.:confused:
