I bought this mouse specifically for Quaking. I did not use the driver that came with the mouse, but instead downloaded the latest driver (MouseWare 9.75) from the Logitech web site. I had some difficulty getting the wheel to work in Quake for switching weapons. The game wheel fix that Logitech offers does not work with MouseWare 9.75 because it tries to edit a registry entry that the new MouseWare does not install. I ended up having to edit the .cfg files in the Quake directory. I had to change a mouse variable (I think it was "in_mouse") to -1. The wheel worked then, but no extra buttons (I was hoping). I still have not been able to get Quake to recognized the 5 extra buttons on this mouse. I have heard that if you don't install the MouseWare, they will work, but I have not tried that. The feel and quality of this mouse is superb. The "click" of the buttons is perfect. The mouse is very ergonomic and the button placement is spot on. The wheel clicks are a little "soft." I prefer more positive clicks, but that is minor. Accuracy and tracking are awesome in Quake, but I did find out that the mouse is sensitive to the type of mouse pad you have. I was using a 3M Precise Mousing Surface and this mouse hated it. I think it was too reflective. Anyway I switched it with a different one and the "glitchiness" went away. One thing I was hoping for but did not get was the ability to have the buttons do different things in different programs. I had a Microsoft product that had this feature and I loved it. The bottom line is...there is not a better quality or more ergonomically correct mouse available, but I think Logitech needs to refine their drivers to suit us Quakers. I highly recommend it, but cross my fingers hoping for better drivers with the ability to use the extra buttons in Quake.

Best Mouse Ever

by joseph_1949@yahoo.com on 1/5/2003

This is the easiest to use and the most accurate mouse I have ever used. I like a mouse to be extremely sensitive but still easy to control. This one is just that. The two little arrow buttons above and below the mouse wheel make page scrolling a pleasure. I bought one for myself. Now I am buying another for my wife.
