Mouse skills test.

Post by Telakh » 15 Jan 2014, 14:04

How good are you at aiming and positioning your cursor while playng FPS and such games?
Or maybe you want to test you new clan member's skills?

Here we have prepared a simple test. You click 10 circles on your screen and the program displays the time you have spent and the distance your cursor have travelled and compares it to the minimum distance between the circles.

You can be fast and inaccurate or you can be slow and accurate.
Final coefficient shows how good you are as it divides the time by your distance coefficient.

Enjoy. We are open for feedbacks. ;)

PS. Program has been built with c# so anyone can get the source with dotPeek or a similar tool.

PPS. After some tests we assume, that you can probably use this scale to measure your results:
20+ Slowpoke. So slooow.
15 User
12 Gamer
11 Padawan
10 Hardcore Gamer
9 Pro
8 Geek
7 Nerd
6 The Nerdest!
5 Ultimate Nerd
4 PentiumII 266MHz

Finally I'd like to mention that results mostly depend on the mouse adjustments and workspace ergonomy. Most of us have nearly the same reaction and if you are not holding your mouse for the first time or using a trackball then the poor results most likely mean that you have to decrease mouse cursor sensivity and acquire some proper mouse pad ;)

The better results you perform, the better and faster you aim.

I am sure you can analyse the results yourself, this is what the program was made for - to make you to pay attention at how you move your mouse and find the reasons why it is not so sharp. The more precise your moves become, the better results you may reach be it minigames or combat.

I've managed to reach only 8.4 myself.

10.385 was my coeff on my first try, but my desktop sensitivity is way too high. I play much lower when I game. I will try to improve on my score later.

Thats a good result!
I'd be happy to know if the tool will help you and anyone else to improve.
It was actually a passing idea, but I have decided to make it live. Who knows if a small program may help a Neo someday :D

Seriously, why no VT scan?
Never trust random stuff from the internet.

Unless you trust the developer. =)
Anyways it's an open source so you can check it yourself if you bother.

Interesting! :)

I have a really old ball type mouse on a table top.

Scoring was in the 10's to 12's range depending on the mouse sticking at times.

10.1 low

I'll keep trying to break 10 :good:

woot! 8.127....nice...got lucky all lined up in a row almost...can I break 8??!!

nope...got 8.226, 8.579. 8.777, 8.889, a few 9's and alot of 10-11's

Not a bad thing to keep practicing though.

Hehe! Glad you enjoy it. That is what it was made for - improve your cursor positioning for faster actions.
