|Mouse Rate 1.1a (c) 1998 Oliver Tscherwitschke
little program measures and displays the sample rate of a mouse, i.e. how often the mouse
sends information to your computer. It just measures the time between two
"WM_MOUSEMOVE" messages and calculates the frequency. There are programs to
increase the sample rate of PS/2 mice to make the cursor movement smoother.
Version 1.1a now displays the average rate over the last 50 samples.
To check your mouse's sample rate, just move the mouse quickly over the Mouse Rate
Checker window until the average rate stays constant.
It's possible that the rate is a bit inaccurate, especially at high rates (>=100
Hz). Try to uncheck the "show current rate" checkbox, which should lower CPU
usage and close all other applications. If it's still inaccurate, blame Windows, not my
Tested on Windows 95 and Windows NT 4.0 but of course you use this program on your own
Mouse Rate Checker 1.1 is Freeware.
