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. dalta centauri June 14, 2010 3:28:09 PM Sensitivity. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
