OpenRA with V and Pen


#1

I was wondering what playing a classic RTS like RedAlert on the V would be like, especially with the stylus, and it’s quite an interesting experience.

The stylus works surprisingly well, including using its right click button. You still need the keyboard attached to play properly as you need the modifier keys at least such as shift.
The only issue I really have is that it’s difficult to scroll as I don’t have access to a middle mouse button that I’m aware of. I should perhaps look into rebinding the stylus’s eraser button to a middle mouse button when OpenRA is active.

Still likely won’t match a good mouse and keyboard though.

CPU usage sits around 30% and GPU usage around 50%. This is base usage as the scenario was far from demanding.
