Dark Forces mouse sensitivity trouble
German Version. No emulators used. System: DFI mainboard k6bv3+, Pentium 200mmx, 64MB SD-RAM, Terratec Maestro 32 sound card, 16x DVD-ROM, Serial 3-button-mouse, MS-DOS 7.1.

The problem I have is, that mouse turning is much more sensitive than strafing, ie. moving the mouse aproximately one cm turns the character 360 degree, while I have to move my mouse across the entire table to even strafe some steps.

I know, I had this trouble before, but I don't remember how I did solve this.
I know, there is a patch for the German version, though it seems to be quite buggy, thus half of the textures got garbled when I applied it.

Then it looks like your screwed, because any mouse problems have to do with more than your game.

If you're using the mouse to turn, how are you using it to strafe as well?

I'm surprised at what his specs are, dude, there much better computers out here.

Had the same problem, found one solution.
I had the same problem with the mouse sensitivity. My mouse is Logitech mx-518. There is the option to "map directly to axis value" in game's control menu.

- Without it my mouse was too slow no matter where the in game sensitivity slider was.

- With it my mouse was too fast no matter where the slider was.

Logitech Setpoint software solved the problem. I just clicked some options here and there in Setpoint gaming performance menu and let it run in backround. I have the "map directly to axis value" option on and I have playable nice sensitivity now.
