Re: Interesting project about mouse/ gamepad latency

While acknowledging that you'll improve your understanding of your method tomorrow, I'll point out one thing about the science now and introduce some background behind why the critical analysis and interpretation is so important. Scientists pick stories that look plausible and interesting. Then they...

Re: Interesting project about mouse/ gamepad latency

You can count Linus's clock, it goes to 59 and then 00. My vague recollection of my proofs from long ago is that under some conditions, pure left/right dodging is optimal. Various physics models here are AD instant constant velocity (Overwatch uses this) and AD instant constant acceleration with exp...

Re: Interesting project about mouse/ gamepad latency

I forgot about something: when I describe the optimal aim as following the trailing edge, the aimer might still want to double back in the opposite direction on occasion, even without seeing the dodger move that way. The trailing edge is only a reference, and also a bound that shouldn't be moved past.

Re: Interesting project about mouse/ gamepad latency

On the archive link I gave of humanbenchmark, you can click the back/forth arrows to see snapshots of the table at different times. This gives more info on the top times, but it's still incomplete. I dunno about Linus's phantom camera, but you weren't the only one fooled by it. Chief Blur Buster was...

Re: Interesting project about mouse/ gamepad latency

I don't need to have assurance that every single data point on that distribution is legit, in order to make this claim. All I need is some reasonable assurance that a subset are legit. Given that I know that flod has achieved scores in that range, it's highly unlikely that he is the only human who ...

Re: Interesting project about mouse/ gamepad latency

I forgot about VR. I don't own a VR system. While the VR software catalogue is looked down upon, it still elicits extremely positive reactions from those who experience it. And some tools like Tilt Brush are only possible in VR; from a futurist's perspective, 3D drawing is far better than 2D drawing...

Re: Interesting Linus video about mouse input lag

I stated that wrong. What I mean is that I consider all mechanical keyboards low end, including the most expensive and custom ones, unless the manufacturer makes claims about latency and performance. This is because good latency is sufficiently unusual that a keyboard with engineering effort towards...

Re: Interesting Linus video about mouse input lag

For lower end and common keyboards, there's a variety of published tests, but I didn't find your Novatouch in any of them. Generally, those keyboards all suck, so your Novatouch will probably not perform well either. What you say about people just being used to the delay is probably right. My Thinkp...

Re: Interesting project about mouse/ gamepad latency

My main focus is on society rather than gaming. Faster input and display helps everyone, not just competitors in video games. But the ultra-high end equipment doesn't seem to be useful for anyone except those competitors. 144 Hz monitors historically have poor color behavior or other tradeoffs, and ...

Re: Interesting project about mouse/ gamepad latency

Enough tests have been done to show some game stimuli (especially bright full screen flashes) is not necessarily identical to Olympic pistol gunshot stimuli, there is likely a fuzzy zone of multi-ten milliseconds that is poorly studied because of some amplified game-specific stimuli, and the ease o...
