I just bought my G9.
I unistalled an older version of Setpoint and installed setpoint 5 from the CD It works fine when I'm not playing any games.
But when I start a game the frame rate drops when I move the mouse.
When I only use the "WASD"" keys the frame rate is stable but when I move the mouse I get a in frame rate drop.
can anybody explain what I'm doing wrong or how I can solve this problem.
Solved! Go to Solution.

That happened to me a while ago.
It was caused by a part of xfire(xfire64.exe, I'm running XP x64).
But the guys at xfire fixed the problem
So try closing any other programs you got running, and see if it helps.

Do you use any framerate monitoring programs, or programs that draw any kind of overlay over the game(like xfire/fraps).
If so try disabling them, and use the ingame framerate monitor.
The consol commands are:
I dount know any what else coud be wrong, sorry.

It could also be with how those games recognize USB devices: The G9 registers as a mouse and a keyboard with the OS (So the macros can have keystroke events).
That being said, I haven't specifically noticed this on my machine. Could you try uninstalling SetPoint 5 and see if this improves the situation?

I tried my G9 mouse on a other PC as well (with Half life 2 without Xfire or Fraps)
I had exactly the same problem.
If I switch to my old mouse (logitech cordless optical mouse) everything works fine.

I solved the problem.
I changed my USB polling rate and everting works fine now.
But I do have an other question.
I had to set the USB polling rate to 200 Hz. I think that is a bit low.
ATM Athlon X2 5200+ 2.7 Ghz
Evga Geforce 9600 GT
2 GB DDR2 (667Mhz)
Windows XP x32 (SP3)
when I play Half-life 2 and don't move the mouse I have a fram rate of +/-100 / 120 FPS
How is it possible that the Frame-rate drops below 20 FPS when i move the mouse (with 250-333-500 or 1000 Hz)???
