I did notice that yesterday (4/17/2012) after the latest patch, I didn't careen around as much. DId anyone else notice? Was there a steath fix for the mouse acceleration in the patch?

fwiw: Razer Tech Support said it's not their mouse, its a game problem.

I actually noticed it a bit too. When 1.2 came out, I had trouble controling it but as of today it seems to be a little more manageable.

Its absolutely not the mouse. I am using a Naga (same as OP), and out of the probably 10 different games I play on the same PC, SWTOR is the only one with any issue. Hopefully they did a stealth patch as you said though!

I actually just found this thread because I was PVPing and still getting random spin-around-moments. So if it is more manageable, it isn't for everyone. Getting pretty tired of this issue =/ I get it most often when I'm just finishing selecting someone with the mouse and then click right mouse to hold and turn - suddenly I'm spinning around in a circle or flying off a catwalk (huttball) or just plain out not facing them when I need to be.

The problem is still around as far as the mouse look going wildly off in odd directions at odd moments for no particular reason. It does seem to be better in general than it was when I first started playing..

I use a Logitech Bluetooth mouse.

In another thread I got some good suggestions for the Razer Naga

This did help quite a bit.

This did help quite a bit.
I tried it out as well.

While it did help with some of the overall response, I'm still getting the mouselook acceleration that's waaay out of whack at times.

I can't play the game if I have my dpi set real low because I need to be able to quickly move the mouse around to target people/things/move inventory/send companions out on missions/etc/etc/etc. Having the mouse sensitivity (dpi) low JUST to counter an OCCASIONAL acceleration issue is just plain dumb. The problem continues to be that (like others, if I'm reading correctly) I will occasionally try to use the mouse to quickly spin around and do a 180 (something I do in other games literally all the time, because it's fun to do in mid air) and sometimes with the exact same mouse movement (from start to stop point) it will whip me around anywhere from 90 to 360+. This is a problem with how SWTOR handles the mouse looking, point blank. In other games, whether they're FPS or other MMOs or other over-the-shoulder style games that don't have weird mouse acceleration I can accurately and constantly jump around doing -controlled- 360s or 720s. This is something I did all the time in WoW just for the hell of it to practice mouse precision and be in control of my character. I mained a hunter for a loooong time back when kiting was actually necessary. Jumping up, shooting behind you, and spinning back forward to keep running in the same direction you were going in SWTOR is just about as likely to happen as it is in real life - but this is a game. Give us control over our characters please.

I love SWTOR, it's an amazing game. But this is the single most frustrating aspect of any game I have ever played. I play with a lot of friends so one frustrating bug isn't enough to make me cry "AMG I'M CANCELLING", but come on Bioware. Give us an option to turn off the mouse acceleration to have raw input only. This is just ridiculous.

In an effort to help devs (ha, as if any have ever looked at this thread) figure out the problem: For ME the issue is primarily when I'm just finished left-clicking an enemy and I'm quickly trying to spin around to face them as they run by or turn. The game is taking the speed at which I was using my mouse directly before clicking the right mouse button and piling it all on at the start of the turn as soon as RMB is pressed.

I was having the same problems and did some error and trial. Found out why the camera would spin so bad for me. My report rate on my mouse. I have a Logitech G500 and had my report rate set at 1000. Dropped it too 333 and BAM! Good to go! Was able too set my sensitivity back up on my mouse and in game. So if you have a mouse with a report rate that can be set, turn it down and see if it works.

Also, I was able too turn my DPI settings back up as well and it works even better.

Just tossing my dizzy hat in the pot. I'm using a Naga Epic mouse and have been having this issue for a long time. Only with the newest patch has it gotten much worse to the point that I don't even want to TRY PVP.

Hello, I would like to point you all to another thread about this. I am not sure if you people haven't seen this post yet. So I will put it up just incase. It has been going on for a long time now. Also there are some BW posts in there. They do know it is a problem, and are still trying to work on it. Also I made a post that it also happens in GW2 for me when I was in the beta weekend, it was actually way worse for me in GW2 then SWTOR.

Happy reading.

Not sure why this issue is still not resolved. I cannot play since I got my new mouse with high DPI, the camera rotation speed is out of control even at 0%!
