Default Slow mouse cursor in Legend games

Hell everyone
I just wanted to ask, whether someone knows how (or if) the mouse speed (especially the y-axis speed) can be adjusted so I wouldn't have to play the games (Death Gate, Shannara) in a window?
Windowed mode isn't that much fun...but the lagging mouse cursor is even worse...
Regarding the games: I've got both on CD and installed via DOSBOX.
I tried to upload it here, but I face the same mouse-lag problems...it's really unnerving since I absolutely love the Legend games and I'm eager to play them in the intended way...

You can set a value higher than 100.

The official DOSBox release has only this one value for both axes. I think in DOSBox-x you can configure the axes separately, something like:

with the 1st value for the x-axis and the 2nd for the y-axis.

There is the tool under DOS(box). Specifically tuned for mouse movement scaling. Unfortunately, I forget which file is used for that, but I'll found it. Later.
