Windows 8.1

Let this be a warning to any gamers considering upgrading, I had these problems:

1) Mouse polling rate is capped at 200Hz (everything I tried did not fix), might not be new to 8.1 but I haven't ran 8 in a while
2) MarkC mouse accel fix no longer worked

these combined made mouse input total poo poo. not to mention it is still windows 8

Is the MarkC fix not working in game or out of game? I know for example CS:GO you have to turn rawinput off for the fix to completely work

both- I skipped games that support raw input, I only considered in games that implicitly turn enhance pointer precision on, but mouse movement recorder was showing crazy mismatches I never got on 7 both on the desktop and in older games, and it was a realllllly noticeable difference. maybe exaggerated by the lower polling rate. I didn't know that about csgo! I use really really low sens in that game so I have just been totally oblivious (also never play it RIP)
