    Converting Mouse sensitivitys to different DPI

    Hi guys, i want to switch from 1000 DPI to 450 DPI and I dont know how to calculate my sens correctly. Maybe some guys here (I suspect Lorfa or Yakumo ) could help me?

    Current settings
    G400s 1000 DPI, 1000hz, mouse accel deactivated
    6/11 in Windows settings, mouse accel deactivated
    m_cpi 0
    cl_mouseaccel 0
    in_mouse 2
    sensitivity 2.065 for LG/RG (approx. 22-24cm/360)
    sensitivity 3.065 for everything else (approx. 16-18cm/360)
    r_mode 14 (1280x720)
    cg_fov 105
    m_yaw 0.022
    m_pitch 0.030

    New sens= Old sens * (Old DPI / New DPI)

    New sens = 2.065 * (1000 / 450) = 4.58888888889

    New sens = 3.065 * (1000 / 450) = 6.81111111111

    Thank you Lorfa.

    One more question, is this the same for cl_mouseaccel? Lets say someone uses cl_mouseaccel, does the calculation above transfer to it too, or is the accel the same no matter what sens/dpi one is using?

    Reason i read on a bunch of threads on esr that the g400s has a native dpi of 800 and in the meantime i started using cl_mouseaccel 0.1 so i want to switch back to 800 with my current accel.

    /Fount it:
    new_accel = old_accel * ((old_cpi/new_cpi)^2)
    Case closed.
