    hi, i had a lan comming up (tonight actually) so i thought i would go and get a bit of quake 3 practice in. so i loaded it up and patched it. low and behold, i cant aim.

    I have been googling for the past 2 days to a fix, has anyone else fixed os x's acceleration? i had a quick look at USBoverdrive and mousezoom but neither seemed to fix the issue (Setting suggestions?)

    i set in_disableosmousescaling 0, in_mouselowend and high to 0 in quake (i think this is the recomended settings for osx, i cant get the exact commands right now because im not at home) also setting suggestions welcome.

    i have a logitech mx500 (with apples drivers, going to install logitechs or possibly kensingtons when i get home.)

    anyone have any suggestions to fix this? Please?

    I had the same problem, my fix was to get a new high resolution mouse. I bought the MX1000 which I love.

    No one has yet to find a way to change the mouse acceleration curve under OS X. I can't properly aim in UT2k4 under OS X either :(

    I use USB Overdrive to completely disable mouse everything, works like a charm for me. I let the games control the mouse acceleration instead because OS X's is horrible so disabling OS X's acceleration seems to do the trick....
