This was taken from the Breach forums, author is Sturmeh.

Quick note, the config file is hidden, so you have to enable "View Hidden Files" - Under Win7, you can do so by going to Control Panel > Folder Options > View > "View Hidden Files"



So you tried setting the sensitivity to 5, and it's still too sensitive?

You need to find the Breach.ini config file.

It's either in the folder you installed Breach in, or here...
"...\Steam\steamapps\common\breach\Breach.ini"

Make sure the game is closed, then go and edit that file.

Find these...
Quote:
UseMouseFiltering=on
MouseInputScale=4.000000


Change them like so...
Quote:
UseMouseFiltering=off
MouseInputScale=1.000000


Now go in game and set the in-game sensitivity to something from 50 to 100, you'll find it's MUCH MORE APPROPRIATE.

There is no breach.ini file in my steam apps. Any suggestions?

eEdit - never mind, it's there, it just didn't have .ini next to the name.

Turn on file extensions to see it.

i think you saw the .exe

you can only see the .ini when you enable hidden folders (press alt > extra > folder options > enable hidden files and folders if you use windows 7)

Edit: seems the OP allready posted on how to find the .ini

I've had to turn up in-game sensitivity to max and it's still on the slow side (though it is serviceable).

Woah... on my 800(set) dpi I use 18 sensitivity with scale 1.

Anyway what you can do is set scale to 2 then almost halve your sensitivity setting ingame...

Might need to if I can't figure another way to set the actual setting higher.

Thanks for the tip, is ".ini" the typical file/extension for mouse variables in steam games generally?
Lowering the DPI helped improve performance on my Razer aswell.

I've never had a problem with the mouse myself. It feels exactly like other shooters. I use a Logitech G5 mouse through the SetPoint software, maybe that's why I've had no trouble.

I'll still have a fiddle with the ini file and see what happens.

Same but with defaults and trying 400dpi, even game sensitivity at its lowest was way too much for me. I had to set scale to 1 and now my sensitivity is around 20 I think. This is with my usual 800dpi as 2000 is usually too much for most games.
