TABLETPC: Problems using Tablet PC with ScummVM
|Reported by:||SF/cromas||Owned by:||fingolfin|
I own a Tablet PC, and I dreamt of playing SCUMM games on it, which I thought would be the ultimate interface. Unfortunately, the mouse-capturing system of ScummVM appears to be completely incompatible with the way the tablet digitizer reports cursor position. The cursor goes absolutely nuts, jumping all over the screen, usually to an edge or corner.
I theorize this is because ScummVM tracks relative mouse movement, while the digitizer likely reports absolute position, but I may be wrong. It also may have to do with ScummVM running in less-than-full resolution.
It would be helpful if someone with a Wacom tablet could see if this behavior is duplicated. I assume it will be, as a Tablet PC essentially is just a Wacom digitizer wedged under an LCD panel.
Could someone with more insight into how ScummVM tracks mouse movement and/or how tablet digitizers report it shed some light on this problem?
