By default the mac client uses hardware mouse acceleration, and as such works like it does in every other mac app. If you'd like your mouse to work as in windows, follow the instructions below to change to software mouse. You'll lose a little frame-rate, but its not bad.

Haven't tried the solution Dataslave gave, but my problems were solved with this: http://skella.com.au/how-to-permanen...n-in-mac-os-x/

Need to try Riot's solution anyway.

Sorry to hear that. It could be that your mouse has some software installed under windows that's changing the dpi settings, and you don't have the equivalent set on the mac. I honestly don't know, I've never used that particular brand of mouse.

That said, I used to switch between mac lol and windows lol quite a bit, and I remember the momentary frustration of the mouse tracking being different. That said, we're very adaptable creatures, and its very possible to re-learn LoL with different mouse tracking in a few minutes to hours. It usually took me about 5 minutes before I felt comfortable after an OS switch, and I did it often.

If you intend to stay with the mac client for most of your LoL gaming, I'd say your best bet is to try enabling the software mouse and getting the speed slider to a decent spot similar to what you're used to. After that, just play games. Lots of games. You should have no problem adapting.

I've had the same problem OP is having. I know it's simply switching the operating systems as my mouse works differently on the two OS's with or without playing League. I'll have to try that link listed. Thanks!

if you are used to the PC acceleration, you should consider getting this: http://smoothmouse.com/

Once you open it in your System Preferences, you can adjust your mouse settings so they are "Like in Windows."


Let me know how it goes for you!

I've tried Riot's software mouse mode and found it to be useless. I've tried an algorithm that disables mouse acceleration and also a third-party app. None of them fixed the problem. The mouse performs inconsistently due to unwanted acceleration. If I move the mouse an inch in a second as compared to an inch in .1 seconds, the distance it moves across the screen is radically different. This doesn't only happen in League, but in other games as well.

I will give some of these suggestions a try. Honestly, I'd given up on the Mac client.

Your statements seem factually false since using riot's software mouse feature disables all acceleration by the operating system, also third party apps can not really totally disable it system-wide, they are just half-asssed hacks.

Interesting little rude post you've made there, and also a completely false one. Have a good day.
