Releases Log

Version Name Change Log
Raw Accel v1.6.0


  • drops support for Windows 7 – 8.1
  • adds different cap modes
    • output cap mode: sets cap at given output wrt gain switch
    • input cap mode: sets cap at given input speed
    • ‘both’ cap mode: sets cap at point [input, output], where acceleration/scale is ignored
  • adds device config menu with options for
    • dpi normalization, where both acceleration and sensitivity are normalized to 1000 dpi, effectively changing the input speed unit from counts/ms to in/s
    • disabling the standard counter-based input speed adjustment, and instead adjusting by a constant derived from polling rate
    • disabling the driver entirely (for selected device)
  • changes vertical sensitivity multiplier to Y/X ratio (x: 0.5, y: 0.75 becomes x: 0.5, ratio: 1.5)
  • changes power mode
    • now cappable (cap was ignored in v1.5), and works with the cap modes listed above
    • adds output offset parameter
    • removes weight parameter
  • breaks json configs
Raw Accel v1.5.1 fixes regression where setting Lp norm < 2 resulted in an error message
Raw Accel v1.5.0
  • adds “streaming mode” toggle for overlaying charts using Chroma key in OBS
  • adds new accel modes: lookup table, jump
  • enables anisotropy/weight options in by-component mode
  • changes gain cap unit from input speed to gain
  • changes accel parameter names
    • natural: acceleration -> decay rate
    • motivity: acceleration -> growth rate
  • removes region-specific number parsing; decimal separator character is always ‘.’
  • removes weight parameter for all accel modes except power
    • negative acceleration can still be applied by setting cap or limit in range (0, 1)
  • removes sensitivity offset, naturalgain mode, cap/offset options, in favor
    of adding a gain/legacy switch, with mode-dependent behavior:
    • linear/classic
      • gain: sets cap style to gain
      • legacy: sets cap style to sensitivity/legacy
    • natural
      • gain: same behavior as the previously named ‘naturalgain’ mode
      • legacy: same behavior as legacy natural mode
    • motivity
      • gain: same behavior as in v1.4
      • legacy: sets sensitivity to the gain of the original function
  • breaks capped power mode – cap is ignored
  • breaks json configs
Raw Accel v1.4.4 bug fixes
Raw Accel v1.4.3 GUI error handling improvements
Raw Accel v1.4.2 fix issues with single device only mode
