MTV and Windows 8

May 17, 2012 at 4:47 AM

Hello, thanks first of all. Multitouch Vista works on Windows 8 and activates all the touch features in the OS. (I'm using it right now)  There is only one problem, When you go into the start screen you cant see the red dot(s). So you really cant use MTV in most of Windows 8. I was wondering if there is a Fix or something that I could try? I really want the touch features of Windows 8 without a touchscreen!

Thanks,

David

I am experiencing the same problem. I would hope a solution is found because testing my Windows 8 apps was the sole reason I downloaded MTV.

I did find a little fix, someone on these forums said the dots where knocked off by window's mouse acceleration. So I did a looksie and found that you can shut it off by doing these steps:

Open Windows Mouse Settings under Pointer Options untick "Enhance pointer Precision".

Then in the startscreen type "regedit".

HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Control Panel/Mouse then backup the registry entrys via File > Export...

then set the following:

MouseSpeed = 0

Mousethreshold1 = 0

Mousethreshold2 = 0

SmoothMouseXCurve

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

 

SmoothMouseYCurve

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

 

Now go back to Mouse and select pointer speed to the fourth dash from the right (it's what i have it set at but it might be different for you.)

The mouse moment is concretely different, i tend to overshoot things now. I do notice a vast improvements in FPS game that i play.

 

I hope this works for you as it did for me, and hopefully it can be fixed soon.
