A year ago or so, i greatly decreased my sensitivity, and my shaft aim and movement (inluding bunny jumping) improved. But not so long ago, i increased it back (from 8 to 12), and it took only a few days getting used to it. My aim and movement didn't become worse at all, in fact i can turn around more quickly and fire rockets with quick flicks (quite obviously), and i like it. What's the conclusion? I think it's all a matter of practice and getting used to the settings you are using.

First wrote this, then realized it's offtopic (but this text implies that you should use same sens for everything maybe): Depends how do you usually control the mouse - holding your hand still and just moving the fingers, or moving with whole shoulder. For the first case - high sensitivity is good for you, for 2nd - low sensitivity. Some minor changes doesn't matter, changing sensitivity with small steps sux, decreases your skill, takes weeks/months to re-learn quick instinctive shots. You usually get first impressive feeling about new sensitivity, but the final effect is that you can't hit anything quick enough.

i use about 14cm/360 and it's goodly

when i used low sens like 25cm/360 on lg only it totally screwed my movement up

i couldn't imagine shafting with anything less than 10cm could be possible but if u can give us your tips 'n' tricks
There is no idea so good that it can't be ruined by a few well-placed idiots.

finding the right sensetivity is impossible for me, sometimes high gives me 35>% lg and and a whooping rl. sometimes it makes baby jesus cry 8<

could be a matter of good and bad quake days, not sensitivity in particular

the faster the better imo, tho too fast can screw up lg aim.. certain settings (sens/fps/hz/drivers) give a different feel.. i played around till i found something that gave the best of both worlds; speed + smooth tracking for lg.. ive improved no end from my old, slower sensitivity.

back in the days i used to play with sensitivity 133

i was moving the mouse very little to turn

me and my friends thought that skilled players play with really high sensitivity (we didn't had internet back then )

eventually we found out that you can actually aim with low sens and i gradually lowered from 133 to 66, 33, 11 and 5 now
god damn hippies >_<

my view on this is: as high as possible while still being able to aim.

You sacrificed one of your balls to put it into your mouse? That's fucking hardcore man.

I agree with Angua though. With a low sensitivity it's harder to be a ninja. :\

That is like an ultra low sensitivity? I think i managed to do like 2,5 360's on my "func surface 1030". :S

see, angua knows...

about 10cm's for a 360.. i can still pin enemies to the roof of povdmm4 (a minimum requirement imo). the thing is, most people think sensitivity as the only thing that changes how the mouse behaves in quake... if i didnt have a bunch of other stuff (fps/driver settings/etc) in alignment id be having alot of trouble aiming with such a fast setup. For the adventurous out there, i recommend playing with these settings as well as m_yaw/m_pitch. there is a relationship between these values and sensitivity which controls the 'feel' or 'shape'. get these values right (it depends on ur hand-eye coordination what will feel right to you) and aiming becomes alot easier. I suppose it comes down to an awareness of the different aspects of aiming, something which comes with experimentation. As i said, its only for the adventurous.. those happy with their setup probably shouldnt go playing with fire. The most important thing of all is to get used to the setup being used.. and while i dont have as much trouble adjusting to new settings as i used to (probably used to it by now), it still takes weeks, even months to get TOTALLY in tune with your setup.

I only know all of this crap because a) im the enquiring type and abit of a perfectionist ;p and b) because alot of my friends have gotten into QW and i wanted to be able to give them the answers. tbh while im glad i DID experiment, it was to the detriment of my own game.. my form was pretty lowsy there for awhile, but since ive gotten what i see as my perfect setup, unchanged for a while now, i feel very powerful indeed. I suppose all i need now is skill...

oh, one more thing...

when you're narrowing these values down, youll probably end up using a couple of decimal places, ie. sensitivity 3.45. IMO adding even more decimal places isnt all that useful. at that point you are just splitting hairs. instead, go change something like pointer speed in mouse properties.. you may have just been on the wrong track.

It is ultra low but I've been using a very low sensitivity for years in other games
