Now select Controls followed by the Mouse/Joystick
Set this Yes to enable the use of the Mouse
for aiming. Setting it to No will force you to press
the Mouselook key if you wish to use the mouse for this
purpose. Obviously aiming with the Mouse is far easier than
with the Keyboard so you should leave this set to On
at all times.
Moving this slider to the Right can improve mouse
responsiveness along the X & Y-axis (Horizontal &
vertical) although may make more accurate movement awkward
due to the extra responsiveness. I’d recommend leaving
this set to the default position unless you find your
Mouse fairly slow reacting to your input.
Set this to Yes to invert the Y-axis of your mouse.
This means pulling back (towards you) on the mouse
will result in looking up & vice versa.
Setting this to Yes will enable the use of
mouse filtering, which averages out mouse movement, which
should result in smoother movement of the Mouse, which is
strongly recommended. Selecting Off will disable
Set this to On if you intend to play the Game with,
drum roll, a Joystick. If you intend to use any other Input
devices then set this to Off for slightly improved
Now open the appropriate Config file & add/edit
the following entries.
You can use this option to set whether or not your pointer
moves at a greater rate during periods of faster tracking.
Valid values for the acceleration level are 0 – 10,
with 0 being no acceleration, though personally I’d
recommend leaving this set to 0.
“x”. Setting x
to 1 may
eliminate lag from Input devices e.g. Such as the Mouse,
although may slightly lower your frame rate as a result. If
you aren’t experiencing such controller lag then leave
this set to 0 for optimal frame rate.
If you are using a Mouse (Which you should
be) you can find out how to further tweak that device in our
Tweak guide. Die hard Joystick users should check the Raven
Software FAQ here however if you’re still wishing to
A good idea for further fine tuning Internet
gameplay is to bind keys to different options,
allowing you to easily change your rate value &
so on. This easy enough to do. In the Config file add/edit
the following as you require.
bind key “command x”.
Replace key with the keyboard button to use
& command x with the desired command to be
used upon pressing that key, e.g. bind H “rate 4500”.
You should do this with a few variations on commands, e.g.
several rate binds – this could allow you to easily
increase/decrease rate values, useful should
you find latency starting to rise, or perhaps easily toggle
on/off the lagometer.
