    I’ve found that VirtualGamepad touchpad emulation mode is great for using DOSBox without a mouse attached. However I have a small issue to report: the emulated touchpad seems to be too sensitive when determining if my tap is a click or a “drag”, which results in most click taps to be misinterpreted as drags. In other words, after I drag to position the cursor and try to tap for a click, touchpad instead slightly repositions the cursor and no click event is generated. This can be frustration and may require 3-4 taps to actually perform a click.

    Can you recommend any workaround for this?

    Currently I add a dedicated virtual mouse button to perform left click.



    Quick question,

    When you use the touchpad, do you see the mouse cursor under your finger ? I’m asking this because I have this issue on one of my device atm and it results in bad clicks… Strangely, it does work correctly on another device that is the same hardware… I suspect a MS update to the touch drivers or something like this… Thanks for your feedback and looking into this…

    Hey, PalmTime

    Do you mean windows cursor (arrow), virtual cursor (small brick) or whatever game uses? I only see the latter move slightly from its previous position when I attemp a click and that’s it.
