Cool Inverted Mouse

Yes or No?

Just having a chat with Rasher and I'm now intrigued as to how people use their mouse when gaming?

Re: Inverted Mouse

Re: Inverted Mouse

For first person always normal, for games where the mouse controls the camera (i.e. third person), I find having it inverted in the Y axis is more intuitive.

And being normal isn't good, being 'weird' as you may call it makes you unique

Sometimes being unique doesn't help, take your father for instance, failing at legs might make him unique but he wont be climbing any mountains any time soon

I can just imagine that, the last terrorist alive planting the bomb with only you remaining, you run in spinning all over the place shooting randomly and headshot him a second before he successfully plants

Re: Inverted Mouse

I use inverted for analog sticks for controllers, but I seriously cannot see how it would be any good for a mouse. Then again I can get used to playing on normal pretty quickly as well.

It was also really weird when I played a flash game where all the mouse movement were flipped around, Left was Right, Up was Down and vice versa. It took me a couple mins to get used to it but then I didn't even have to think about it. Get back on to a normal FPS and I had to get used to normal mouse all over again.

The mind is a pretty amazing thing.
