  • Pen tip pressure on OpenTabletDriver?
    3 projects | reddit.com/r/osugame | 10 Oct 2021
    I tried the Windows Ink plugin guide from https://github.com/X9VoiD/VoiDPlugins/wiki/WindowsInk but the Windows Ink Absolute/Relative modes fail to work, and with Devocub Antichatter OTD gets a fatal error and has to restart.

  • CTL-470 Wacom Bamboo looses pen pressure after windows 10 updates, trying to start using OTD
    1 project | reddit.com/r/wacom | 5 Oct 2021
    I'd ask on OTD's Discord for more specific help for that driver since this subreddit is more of general Wacom help, but chances are you haven't installed vmulti and the WindowsInk plugin for OTD, which allow you to use pen pressure. There is a setup guide here.

    You should use OpenTabletDriver, not Hawku. Hawku drivers are extremely outdated and buggy which is probably why Windows Ink mode on there isn't working properly for you. OpenTabletDriver does not support pen pressure in its default pluginless state, but you can easily install the Windows Ink plugin in plugins>plugin manager. In order to set this plugin up properly, please read all the instructions listed here. Once installed, pen pressure should work fine for art. You can also install smoothing or antichatter filters to preference, if needed. The art settings probably are not ideal for osu, so you can save a separate art and osu settings profile by exporting settings with file>save settings as. You can then press file>load settings to swap between the two.

    Could possibly be an issue with WindowsInk, making your tablet only work as a normal mouse. Make sure whatever program you are trying to use has WindowsInk set as its pressure protocol, if that is something you are able to change in settings. Also, don't use Hawku drivers. They haven't been updated in 3 years and have slowly become more and more broken with each Windows update to the point that a lot of things are just completely unusable in them. If you want something lightweight and open-source that is actively maintained and updated, there is OpenTabletDriver. Although do note that this doesn't have WindowsInk installed by default, and you have to download a plugin for the driver and follow some instructions to get pressure to work. There is also a dubugger for your tablet so you can see if it is the pen that is causing the pressure issue, but I doubt a pen would die in such a way that you'd only have full pressure or none.
  • Pen pressing while hovering

    You'll also need to install windowsink mode if you are on windows and want to use pen pressure. The plugin should be under plugins>plugin manager, and there are instructions linked on the plugin page or here. Takes a little bit to set up properly, but their Discord server that is linked on the Github page tends to be pretty helpful with stuff.
  • Why do people who review or (probably)use tablets with hardware smoothing say it's bad without testing it with anti-smoothing filters?

    you can, this wiki makes it pretty clear

    Use it. OTD have a plugin called Reconstructor, which reverses the smoothing algorithm applied by the hardware. Just follow instructions and read wiki for installation of OTD and its plugins.
