Need help with mouse-stutter!!!
I'm desperate now, I've had Skyrim on steam for almost a year, and I've always been plauged by the stuttering when moving the mouse, not in menus, only when I'm controlling my character. I've been searching google for solutions, I actually found a solution a while back, it was a FPS limiter, and it made the stutter almost unnoticeable. But I've reinstalled Skyrim and I've forgotten what it was called. But even with the FPS limiter, there were still some stutter. Also, I know it's not graphics related because it stutters on all settings. I don't know what to do, if anyone here have any suggestions, I'm all ears.

@grimus: Turns out i had the FPS-limiter in my downloaded files. I installed it but it didn't help, and those Steamsupport links were of no use, because the problem is only in Skyrim. Any other games there's no problem with mouse stutter. I can even run Bioshock: Infinite whithout any kind of lag at all! But not Skyrim, it just doesn't want to cooperate with me.

Anyways, here are my system specs (it's a laptop):
CPU: Intel core i5 2450M 2 cores + 2 "logic" cores @ 2,5 Ghz per core.
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7670M 1GB Vram.
RAM: 6GB DDR3
Screen: 15,6" LED res 1366x768 @ 60 hz refresh rate.
DirectX: 11
OS: Windows 7 home premium 64bit.

Also, I use these mods:
Skyrim Script Extender (SKSE)
FNIS behavior
and all the unofficial patches.

None of the mods have anything to do with the problem as I had it without the mods aswell.

I really wish for Skyrim to work, but I just don't know how.

take a look at this thread:

also some gaming mice don't play well with skyrim. if you are using one try google or manufacturer web site and maybe post in Beth's tech forum.

i've run out of ideas, sorry, best of luck tho.

@grimus: Thanks for the tip about it being specific mice that might not work! I googled it and found this post:

And the comment at the bottom said that having a mouse from Razer is a cause because they use their own sensitivity settings. Although he didn't mention a fix for it, atleast i know that it might be the mouse itself. Thanks again!

you're welcome, happy i could point you in a good direction.

I'm using a Razor Mamba mouse with no issues. You must have a defective mouse.
Zuldokein Dec 28, 2013 @ 1:54pm 
@Terminal: As I wrote before, the problem is exclusive to Skyrim. If the mouse is defective, then all games would have this problem, but the don't. The only other game i have issues with is Saints Row IV, but thats just normal lag, nothing with the mouse.

As I wrote before, I have no issues with Skyrim using my Razor mouse. Smooth as silk.

Have you updated the firmware in the mouse?
Zuldokein Dec 28, 2013 @ 2:24pm 
Are you talking about the firmware that is installed in the mouse itself, or do you mean synapse? I have the ouroboros, shouldn't be much different than the mamba, what settings do you have for the sensitivity and such?
Zuldokein Dec 29, 2013 @ 2:22am 
I visited Razer's website and went to the downloads page, then my mouse model, and then firmware. But there were no files in the firmware section. And also, how do I check if i have the latest firmware or if i need to update? There's no option for that in Synapse, and I don't know any other way of checking my Razer products.

googled razor ouroboros instructions:

and this is why i believe in the KISS principle.

Heh, I know. But the actual settings aren't that hard once you get the hang on it. I feel sorry for the americans though because they have to use a screwdriver to change the battery :D

Why is it that whenever a game comes out for multiple platforms, Developer make the game on consoles, and then just port it over to PC? Why can't they do this the other way around? Developing a game on the PC and then porting it to consoles should be better. But then again they make more money from console players, as long as they keep getting their $$$ they won't give a damn about bugs like mouse stutter, freezing, CTD's etc etc.

Take a look here http://steamcommunity.com/app/72850/discussions/0/792923683992221216/

This guy solved the problem using the ENBoost Mod. I have a similar problem (also on a laptop with switchable graphics, HD4000 + 7670M), and it works.
But you have to use the ENB injector version, so launch it everytime you want to play Skyrim...

You can also play in Windowed mode, it works but the performance take a hit (I lose around 10 FPS).

This problem is very common, but it seems Besthesda doesn't care at all.

i found lowering the mouse sensitivity, by quite a lot, improved the responsiveness considerably
