    I just installed a couple of games (startcraft, diablo) in OSX and although the high resolution is supported well, the mouse is not. The mouse barely move once I've changed the resolution to the highest (2880x1800). I've set the mouse sensitivity to max already and it still barely moves.

    How do I fix this?

    That means you have lag, and honestly either:

    1. Use an external mouse

    2. Drop the resolution

    3. On SC2 enable "reduce mouse lag" but it will eat your FPS some.

    1. I am already using an external mouse. Who play games on a trackpad?

    2. Why? I bought a rMBP to play diablo in high res. It's even mentioned in Tim's keynote.

    3. It's not lag, it doesn't jerk or anything. It's just really low mouse sensitivity.

    OH! Sorry man I really misunderstood your post. Ok well if the sensitivity is low, well....are you in bootcamp/Windows or Mac OSX? If your using a gaming mouse sometimes on the actual mouse it will have some options for sensitivity. Like my Logitech G500 has a sensitivity option and control on itself.

    I'm in OSX and the mouse has no custom sensitivity. It's a pretty standard usb wired mouse from logitech with no extra buttons.

    Hmm....honestly I can't really help you out there. Perhaps someone more informed will come along to this thread?


    Either way have a good day!

    Follow this handy guide:

    1. Open Mac App Store
    2. Search "Decelerate"
    3. Download the app.

    You're welcome. :)

    Dumb question. But did you by any chance go into the system preferences and check the mouse sensitivity there?

    Wow another good answer! Come to think of it, Mac has got more freeware and applications than it did when I owned a Mac back in 2009.
