How can I get Windows Sensitivity? Sat Mar 17, 2018 9:38 pm  •   #12050

Be advised that I'm no expert on sensitivity and do not know much about the correlation of DPI, OS sensitivity, and mouse acceleration. I've only recently downloaded ControllerMate and I might need to purchase the full version to accomplish what I want to do in this post.

Once my PC died(literally), I switched over to my Macbook Pro and haven't been able to get another PC. I've been using it ever since now, but one thing I always hated was the different feel of the sensitivity.

I used an application called SmoothMouse to disable mouse acceleration and used it's 12 mark scale instead of Mac's 10 mark scale to sort of match the Windows sensitivity better. I don't know if this is how it works, but I basically compared the fractions from Windows like 5/11 to determine that 5/12 using SmoothMouse's scale is probably very ideal. However, macOS ruined the SmoothMouse project and I was redirected here to this program, but I have stayed on Yosemite 10.10.5.

So, why don't I just stay on Yosemite and forgot about macOS?

Well, in order to play the new popular Fortnite game, I've recently downloaded macOS High Sierra in a partition to test out ControllerMate in an attempt to recreate what SmoothMouse did in my Yosemite partition, which has no mouse acceleration and has its own mouse sensitivity scale. Although it did not replicate Window's sensitivity, it was still pretty good.

Now, I have been told by SmoothMouse that this is one of the best alternatives to their project. I know there is a mouse acceleration curve, but that is useless if I used the command in terminal that removes mouse acceleration.

Code:
defaults write .GlobalPreferences com.apple.mouse.scaling -1


Maybe I'm mistaken about what ControllerMate actually does, but nonetheless, I'm wondering if it is possible to achieve what SmoothMouse has done or actually replicate Window's sensitivity.
