OK, I think I can safely say I can put a thread here where gnagnet might actually agree with me and not stray off the topic. ;-)

I started waxing my mouse pad and it really has helped smooth out the game play. If the white plastic mouse (feet?) under the mouse get dirty, control of the mouse for me get sloppy and irradic. You don't really notice it that much, but it becomes grabby and sketchy and hard to land on a target like someone's head. also: I put some industrial teflon anti-friction tape on the mouse feet and this made it move like buttah.

Anyone else have some tips? Gnagnet??

ok dude u must know nothing about mouses. You need to clean them or they start to stick and its "frickin" bad. Also cleaning the rollers would help instead of buying an optical....also u dont "soup" up a mouse, hes asking how to fixs his....read the post before you reply :).

If you've ever gone to any "tweaking" sites, you'd be surprised all the tweaks people do to their computers. From tweaking their cable modems, sound cards, CPU's, etc. so I wouldn't exactly call keeping the mouse from becoming sticky anything extreme. I'm sure many people don't even consciously realize how poorly their aim becomes when the mouse doesn't cooperate. Makes a difference between a headshot and a miss (you're dead). (ever kill someone using a lugar from the upper bunker who is running in from the beach on mp beach? )

NOW question about optical mice... I have played one time with one and the time I did, it would lose orientation sometimes and would cause my player to spin around like top. Is this a common occurance??

Hi FlederMaus!

Yeah it does happen occaisionally with mine, however I find the supiorority of playing with an optical mouse outweigh the occaisional disorientation. Also try setting mouse sensitivity down for using optical.

Hey how about this mouse mod!

Haha, someone with too much time. (oh I remember those days well...) (But I do have a few laser LED's in my case, and a clear 1/4thick lexan window in one of my 5ΒΌ bay popouts! Just no legoland people inside!)

Even with an optical mouse, it still has to slide around... which was my point, smoothness of slidability. I don't have any ball or roller problems since those are usually kept pretty clean,, just the the coefficient of friction between the mouse and the table or mouse pad.

I will have to pick up an optical though, This MS mouse of mine has seen better days and I think I saw an optical for about $15... so that is a hard one to pass up. (but man, it is going to be like getting a new baseball mitt or something... will take a while to get used to it and break it in)

IMO, an optical mouse it worth the small adjustment. Also, no pad needed!
