mouseaccel issue / bug
Ive got an annoying problem with accel: whenever I join a server, the accel doesnt seem either to kick in, or its doubled.
I made sure the qzconfig and repconfig files are set to read only and contain the same values, but the only thing that seems to work is execing my config and doing in_restart afterwards. Sometimes it takes several tries to make it work properly.
Cpma and OSP are perfectly fine, tried them both just to make sure its not the mouse or anything hw related.
Is this a known issue and could it be fixed somehow? Thanks.
Are the values of:
Consistent or at their defaults? Maybe one of these got changed and then you set your configs to read only so that you keep having to change them and the information is never saved..
Thanks for the reply.

Its solely an accel issue, sensitivity stays the same (I measured 360s). Im also not using any kind of accel fixes for windows or anything that could affect accel in any way, including mouse drivers.
I keep hearing about this 'accel bug' that occurs with higher accel (mine is .5) that needs to be fixed, is this the case, or can I somehow prevent it from happening?
You said that cpma and OSP are fine, which points away from a windows mousefix/driver issue (as does in_mouse 2). It also rules out a mouse issue since that would also show up in the other games.
Can you pastebin your config? There are cvars that exist in QL that do not exist in CPMA/OSP.
One thing is that it is unusual to make your configs read-only. The presence of autoexec.cfg makes it so that settings will not be saved after QL is closed already. For most settings anyways, there are a few such as handicap that can remain changed.
Another thing is if you reset defaults, then try some mouse accel for a bit, and see if you still experience the issue. If you do not it points to a config problem.
Heres the config: http://pastebin.com/uADgb8cS . Though I dont think there are any cpma/osp cvars present, what I basically did was /writeconfig and edit after to get full cvar list.

No matter, Ill try what you suggested and reset the settings to default and see if that has any effect on accel. Ive also disabled read only for both qzconfig and repconfig and see if that does something.
you can always create your own autoexec and just put exec mycfg.cfg in it. try doing /clearcvar cl_mouseaccel. It gives it a value of "" I use these accel settings
In your personal cfg that you exec each game you don't need to have mouse cvars in them if they are at default values. Before I started to use accel I never found cl_mouseaccel 0 to actually turn anything off but to give me issues

Thanks. I am using autoexec, Ive been testing clearcvar for accel for a couple of days (both in exec and ingame) and had about the same luck as with execing and doing in_restart afterwards. Its like a 33% chance that quake loads my settings properly.
