Lately I've been trying to play on your servers but the movement of my mouse is choppy and unsmooth. Its only temporary but by the time its fixed probably an hour is already passed by.
Sorry for not enough info but I'll add more after I try to reinstall it.

Try to lower your mouse polling rate. If I set mine to 1000hz it messes up.

Low FPS could be a problem. Drivers outdated is possible too.

Well so far I got nothing better, this has happened ever since I installed CA Security Suite, and even after I disable my firewall the movements continue to temporarily stay like this.

Edit: Well Xfire couldn't capture my movements but my demo did, sorry I can't gather much info at all at the moment.

Check if you have a steady frame rate, type this command:
/cg_drawfps 1
and check how many fps you get, and especially if the number is more or less constant. If you get a low value for an instant, your mouse will freeze because the game reads it only every frame: no frame, no reading, no movement.
Another reason could be other processes using your cpu while you play, that could slow down the game for an instant.

Do you mean the FPS display on the 2d screen? I use that already and it's fine. Same with the Lag-o-Meter.

Then it could be a problem with your mouse drivers not being responsive enough. Maybe your usb polling rate is too high?

I don't know if it's possible with other mods, but on etpro if you do cg_lagometer 2 it will draw a graph of your fps, so you can easily see if there are spikes or not.

If you open a localserver with devmap you can do /timegraph 1 to have a similar thing, but unluckily it doesn't work when you play on a server because that var is locked. Maybe on some trickjump servers.

cl_debugMove 1 will make a graph of your mouse input, this should work online too...

I do not think that this involves any mouse problems. The mouse works fine outside the servers, this includes when ET loads and using the mouse to select servers, change settings etc. Also my mouse is fine because I can use ESC and use the mouse perfectly fine to change settings, and stuff like that.
