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?
