What mouse do you use? (to play bzflag)

Post by tw1sted » Tue Jul 31, 2007 3:14 am

I personally use the logitech G7 cordless gaming mouse with In-game sensitivity switching and 2000 dpi :D (seen here)

and yes, it was 100$ :E

P.S. The Product Tour gives a nice overview of it.

I do believe I would have the same.

I just recently got a new mouse! We're upgrading our systems 'cause well, their kinda crappy lol So the mouse was just something to improve and I ended up with a Razer Copperhead.

So you basically have my mouse without the swappable battary packs :D
Oh, and is the Everglide mouse pad nice? What is so special about it that you went a spent 33 Euros for it?

I can never be bothered to find a mouse and flat surface to play. And it's not good using a trackpad. And the only mice I own are either Apple Pro mice or an Apple Mighty Mouse. The pro mice only have one button and therefore suck for gaming, and the mighty mouse is always in use by somebody else. So I use the keyboard.

Oh, I do have one of these, but WTF?

My nicer mouse I didn't actually buy for bzflag, I got it for just everyday use-but it's really nice and durable.

I don't know why people have to spend so much money on these mice. The other one I have is sufficient enough, and you can always count on the wired ones.

I use a stock '02 Microsoft wired optical mouse on a crappy mousepad from some career fair somewhere. Just the usual two buttons and wheel button.

But check this out; Saturos uses a Wii. :D

Depends on my mood. I have 4 choices.
1. None (yay keyboard!)
2. Standard 1-button Mac mouse
3. Razer Diamondback
4. Razer Copperhead
However, the copperhead gets a bit hard when you put the dpi up more than 1600dpi, so I generally keep it at 1600.

A tiny bit of research can do a lot of good, Grace. The name "wacom" is on the device. A quick google for that brings to their main page, including a nice image that looks like this tablet. Looks to be the 4x6 version of the Intuos3
