    Title says it all...

    I have searched everywhere, and can't find an up to date answer. Come on, there have to be some gamers here who can't stand "Mouse Acceleration"

    Thanks in advance

    As far as I know there is no way to do that through Mac OS X, though there are third party options. You may want to take a look at Smoothmouse (which apparently fixes mouse lag which can be mistaken for mouse acceleration problems) or Controllermate (which allows you to adjust the mouse acceleration curve to your specifications).

    I couldn't/can't stand the mouse movement with OS X, so for a loooong time I used a replacement mouse driver called SteerMouse, this made mouse movement linear. Then Logitech released their driver and app for OS X, so I've been using that in place of SteerMouse.

    It's not a lag issue, it's just how the mouse movement was programmed and isn't linear so the "fix" is to use a 3rd party mouse driver.
