"Multi-Touch" Touchscreen Input

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Recently I got myself a touch screen monitor that takes VGA/DVI and has a touchscreen controller through USB.

 

I am wondering (if possible at all) if I can simulate a mouse click at all the points I touch?

To do things like "Draw 2 lines at the same time on MSPaint"

Play music games that requires pressing two "notes" at the same time

 

When I plugged it into a laptop, windows installed the generic HID Touch Driver and I got the monitor/touchscreen working with gestures.

Using "Pen and Touch" -> "Visual Feedback" I can confirm that it recognizes multiple touch points.

The monitor is labelled as TOVIS L2165AT1BA

 

 

Thanks Guys

i just tested my touch screen, i can draw 2-3 lines at once in paint, didnt test 4 fingers

what rhythm game? most PC rhythm games only require 1 input at a given time because of mouse limitations

 

unless you're emulating android games.

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer monitors, Gigabyte, Seagate HDD, Kingston SSD, Razer (except their mouse), XiaoMi Phones

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Multi-touch can be 2 fingers or 10 fingers.

On my LG multitouch screen i can simulate all 10 fingers at the same time.

But not all programs can make advantage of this feature.

Most programs would only respons to 1 finger action at a time.

Most Windows apps are not optimized for multitouch.

Only special windows app like Paint 3d supports all fingers.

You can simulate a click by tapping, just like in mobile phone.

Thanks for your input guys 

 

Rhythm game that i wanted to play is DJMax Technika 2

I got it off the harddrive from an arcade machine thats on its way to the dumps.

 

There are other games I want to try on this touch screen monitor using bluestack but primarily DJMax.
