Sluggish cursor while playing older games? Tags: PC gaming Cursor Games Video Games Last response: June 15, 2010 1:02 AM in Video Games Share delta100 June 14, 2010 4:09:57 AM There are a few older games that I own from 2001-2006 that have sluggish cursor movement. The games themselves don't lag, it's just that cursor moves... sluggish. I'm not sure how else to explain it. I have Windows 7 64-bit, 2.6GHz Quad-core, 6GB of Ram and ATI Radeon HD 4200. Is there a solution? There are some games that I love (i.e. Rome: Total War) that are just too irritating to play now because the cursor moves so sluggishly.

Try running older games in compatibility mode, it may help. m 0 l dalta centauri June 14, 2010 3:28:09 PM Sensitivity. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
