Hmm wireless mouse has delays sometimes, try wired you may improve
Thanks Athena :) will give a try to a wired one, any recommendation on model or something?, cheap if possible (less than 30€)

Not all wireless mouses necessarily have a delay. Maybe if it's a year or two old, but these days, they usually don't. I'm using a wireless with 0ms delay.

You're a liar, and the whole tech world can support me.

I never experienced a delay with my wireless mouse. There may be a delay, but it's so low that it's not noticeable.

Teliko, your settings are horrible and increasing dpi for the sake of hitting corners is the worst idea ever.
I'm only trying to help you here :o

Any particular reason you find them horrible? Dimensions are default, osu sensitivity is default, windows enhanced precision is required to be off for RTS gaming. If I can't physically reach the distance between two notes in enough time, the best solution is adjusting myself to a higher sensitivity. Interested to know which aspect of my settings you're specifically criticising, seeing as sensitivity is a personal preference.

It could be a misunderstanding in wether you decided to use mouse precision in windows or not. In this post, you tell me you turned it off, which is fair enough. In the other post, you claimed to have enabled the "enhance pointer precision" toggle in windows.
In any case, doing that isn't ideal for any kind of mouse play as it makes muscle memory much more complex.

The main reason why you struggle with reaching the distance between two notes is because you haven't been playing enough yet.
Increasing dpi will perhaps solve that problem faster than just training with your physical abilites, but over time, this will make you lose a great amount of precision and it will make you struggle with smaller hitcircles later on as you progress as a player.

Lastly, yes it is all preference, but play styles all have pros and cons and even though good players will adjust to about any setting, it's important to focus on the settings that pay off the most as an end product.

Oh, you're correct, that's a mistake on my behalf. Enhanced pointer precision is always off. In regards to sensitivity, as long as the dpi doesn't go beyond the stage where pixelskipping becomes an issue, I can't imagine high dpi having negative effects in the long run if I adjust properly to the sensitivity. I have indeed only picked up Osu recently, but a lot of the technique will carry over from RTS gaming, which I've been doing for years.

low dpi, around default sensitivity, enchance pointer precision off and you're pretty much good to go, the rest depends on you

also hakurouken i cant really help you with that, i use a crap mouse and im a noob as well D:

8. How do you hold/grip your mouse? umm...don't know how to describe :D
9. What is your mousepad? (or where do you place your mouse?) usual mousepad
10. What are your problems/issues while you're playing? (e.g can't spin well, that jumps, streams...) fast jumps. I just can't reach about 0.5 cm to note if there is a jump from one side of the screen to another...GOD, HOW I HATE WHEN IT HAPPENS. Btw, I've read some comments from this thread and I'm confused. How the hell you manage to play with default sensitivity and 400 DPI. I tried that and I had to move my hand like mad :(

Because I've played 450 dpi for so long, it doesn't feel hard at all. Jumping across the screen is muscle memory and reading skills.
You can improve at jumps like these just by playing them regularly!

450's a cool number.
I play at 400, and it really doesn't even seem like I'm moving my mouse much for screenwide jumps. This probably means I can lower my sensitivity even more.
