Mouse Acceleration

Post by value4realty »

I have an older Kensington Trackball that none of the current drivers work well with. There used to be an intellipoint workaround and compatibility mode workarounds but with Windows 10 64 none of them work. I have edited the registry to increase acceleration but to do it, enhanced pointer control must be turned off. That makes the mouse sloppy. Would be nice if your driver took over acceleration and offered more range of speed with enhanced pointer control.

Unfortunately, XMBC is NOT a driver and can only manipulate the very same windows settings that you have already tried with Regedit.

If there was some magic registry key then sure, i can modify it, but I suspect as you haven't found one, there just inst one available in Windows 10. Let me know though if you do find something and I can make it more user friendly by providing option sin XMBC.

Hello, I use the trackball Logitech Trackman Marble
I would like to be able to more advanced settings for speed and acceleration of the mouse, dynamically changing, for example, as implemented in SetPoint from Logitech

In the registry of Windows 10 on the path "KEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse" you can find keys that can help in configuring this functionality (MouseSensitivity, MouseSpeed, MouseThreshold1, MouseThreshold2).
Documentation is on the Microsoft website, but I can not attach a link to the article
I think this information will be useful.

P.S. My English is poor. If something is not clear, ask again

I also would like to have better control over acceleration, without ever touching that excuse of a software called SetPoint.

Humane interface to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse registry branch would be nice.
Tbh, I didn't even expect SetPoint to use this registry branch for acceleration, expecting it to do something Logitech-specific and even device-specific.

The values MouseSpeed, MouseThreshold1 and MouseThreshold2 seem to be outdated after Windows XP.
These days you need to adjust SmoothMouseXCurve and SmoothMouseYCurve values.

I'm not even sure MouseSpeed, MouseThreshold1 and MouseThreshold2 do anything anymore. Not until relogin at least, so it's hard to test. Have to look into usage of SystemParametersInfo function for immediate non-permanent changes - will it do anything...

The answer seem to contain (links to) most up to date and complete information and a curve editing tool. Although I'd love to have a visual tool - something we can't expect in XMouse any time soon.
