Hello,

Where did you see that number? If it's on "curses" mode AFAIR remember it's tied to emulated controller refresh rate. Just make sure in your mouse software that DPI is higher and all will be fine.

Regards,
Daniel

Yes it is in curses at the bottom.
But how do i know it is actually on 250 or 500hz.
On the wiki there is a formula that shows im lagging 100ms with 100hz

You can set mouse polling rate in your mouse software, logitech, M8000x drivers etc.

The number you see in curses mode is emulated controller refresh rate. It is not your mouse polling rate.

You can also raise gimx refresh rate to 250Hz using command line, but it is not necessary.
100Hz is good enough.

100Hz is actually a period of 10ms, which means a worst case latency of 10ms.
