Atari Artist

Post by marco.nadal.75 » Wed Mar 13, 2019 7:16 am

I am interested in pixel art and I am investigating different tools to produce it.

Unfortunately I do not own a tablet.

I discovered Atari programs using a tablet can be operated with a mouse in Altirra*.

I have, however, a problem. When capturing the mouse for Tablet emulation,
it displays the high-res cursor displaced down and left from the XY position of the stylus.
How do I fix this?


*I followed the following procedure:

1. Input > Input Mappings...

2. Click Add... call it "Mouse -> Atari Tablet" or similar

3. Highlight your new mapping, Click Edit...

4. Add Controller... , choose Tablet (Atari touch tablet), OK

5. Axis 1 -> Edit... , Source : Mouse Pos X (pad)

6. Axis 2 -> Edit... , Source : Mouse Pos Y (pad)

7. The Stylus button was a button on the pen. It draws when the stylus is DOWN, and toggles the tool screen when stylus is UP.

I mapped the buttons on the pen & tablet as follows:
Stylus button -> Mouse LMB
Left tablet button -> Mouse X1B
Right tablet button -> Mouse X2B
Raise stylus -> Mouse RMB

Press MMB to un-capture mouse from the emulation window.
