Does 10/20 mouse speed means it doesnt affect it?

It seems that even if i remove it, the speed setting that is set in your program won't disappear, it persists, so I'm guessing that the mouse speed this program modifies is stored somewhere in the registries I guess, not in my xmouse button control profile.

I REALLY need 1:1 mouse speed, I set my mouse speed in windows to 6/10, disabled acceleration, everything else that could modify it. Now I noticed that your program somehow separately modifies it as well, and that resetting its settings or removing it doesn't do a thing.

Can you help me on this matter? If I set your program to 10/20 mouse speed does it leave my mouse speed alone? I really need to HAVE 1:1 mouse speed, 100% clean input no interference from third party programs like these. I only needed this program for the custom keybinds.

Thanks in advance! (B)

The mouse speed option changes the value normally accessible from the mouse control panel program. I have a feeling that it may not be available any more in windows, but yes it is a registry setting if its not there.

If you don't change it in XMBC then it will use whatever Windows has it set to by default. I can't remember the details so that will have to wait until I get home (Saturday probably).

Thanks,
Phil

Thanks for your fast response both here and on your email!
I think 10/20, the default one didn't change anything, but if you have time and it's okay maybe you can mention what registry setting it changes, because the windows setting is still 6/11 no matter what setting i use in your program.

Thanks for making it though, it's an amazing program, it let me change them from being able to go next or backwards in a web page to being able to act as enter/control buttons, finally I can actually use them instead of them going to waste.

OK XMBC uses the SystemParametersInfo API with SPI_SETMOUSESPEED which from a quick google search does this:
Sets the current mouse speed. The pvParam parameter is an integer between 1 (slowest) and 20 (fastest). A value of 10 is the default. This value is typically set using the mouse control panel application.
So yes, 10 is default, and I cant tell you quite so easily the registry setting per-say. It will, behind the scenes, modify the registry but the API may of course do other things too!

Thanks
