Firingsquad heeft een Hardware Guide voor Real Time Strategy spelers in elkaar gedraaid (met welke hardware je iemand zo relaxed mogelijk knut doodnuken in C&C&zo). Hier een stuk over RTS-vriendelijke muizen:
Iíve been using the same mouse for 5 years with small breaks in between. Iíd have to say that itís the most reliable mouse that Iíve come across. It's the Logitech ďbear pawĒ Mouseman(retail $20) which will be replaced by the upcoming Logitech Wingman mouse (which is the same design except that it scrolls and clicks a little bit better and is retailed at $40). In between, I used the Microsoft mouse (retailed at $20) with the roller. Both mice are extremely good precision-wise. I have heard that the Microsoft mouse is much better for FPS, but aside from the Logitech one lasting longer for me in the past, but both are good choices for RTS. It comes down to what hand position you use and which you are more comfortable with.
Kenn has pestered me about whether the PS/2 rate utility affects game play. I couldnít answer at the time since I was in the middle of PGL, and I knew that if I changed my settings that I might not be able to play at my best. I have finally tried it, and it actually does help a great deal for me. I was under the false impression that the PS/2 rate would affect the mouse scroll, but I was later informed that it only makes it look smoother on the monitor. The differences were pretty immediate as I was able to aim on smaller units much easier.
