Microsoft: There are several issues in Windows 8.1 with some mice in games


From Neowin:
Soon after Windows 8.1 launched in October, many users noticed that that playing some games with certain mouse products was causing a great deal of lag. At the time, Microsoft did not offer any comments on the matter, but a recent post on their support forums indicates they are aware of "several different issues" with using some mice in Windows 8.1.

The support forum post states that one of the problems is that the mouse cursor seems to move quickly back and forward when moving inside a game. Microsoft says, "This occurs in some games because Windows 8.1 handles the games’ checks for the mouse status differently." Another problem is when users turn off mouse acceleration "to make the distance on the screen match the distance you move the mouse". Microsoft says this may no longer work with Windows 8.1. Finally, the Polling Rate on some mice products may have a lower than normal reporting frequency.
