    Anyone notice that if you are running the desktop resolution at "best for retina"
    and you run games at max res, that there is a huge difference in mouse speeds

    My mouse feels much snappier on desktop and when i load a game it feels slow and sluggish, once i get used to it in the game its not so bad, but then when i close them game it feels like lightning fast

    I would have thought that the speed would have scaled with active resolution but it doesn't :(

    Does anyone know of or have a fix that would make it scale properly?

    This applies to both touchpad and external mouse but if it helps I'm using a logitech mx revolution

    Edit, i can make profiles for differen buttons to work differently in different apps, if only i could do the same for the mouse speed!

    Mouse speeds differ between games and the rest of the OS. Games usually have a default mouse setting than can be changed. I'm very sure you can change mouse speeds, you just have to look for it.
