How to Remove Mouse Lag from Elan Touch Pad on a laptop

One of the most annoying things about gaming on a laptop is the touchpad. Now there is no reason why the touch pad should not be as serviceable as the good old mouse, It might take a little practise but it should work just as well as a standard mouse. However if you have ever tried to aim immediately after using the keyboard in most cases you’ll probably have noticed that you can’t for a few seconds or that there seems to be interference.

What you would have just experienced is Palm Protection (Different company’s call it different things but it all amounts to the same thing). What Palm Protection is designed to do is to protect users from accidently activating the touch pad while typing on the keyboard. The Idea being that if you’re typing an email or for instance a article you’re not having your cursor move around the screen and end up accidently typing away in a sentence you finished ages ago.

For gaming however this is a bit of a nightmare as it can mean that for a few moments you are unable to look or aim which in some games isn’t an issue but in fast paced games such as a fps could mean the difference to life or death.

Now you would think it would be pretty easy to disable this and indeed for some manufactures its just a option in the driver settings for the touchpad. However for others even switching it off in the settings doesn’t actually switch it off.

 

And that’s where this post comes into it.

Lord Of The Fallen

Journey

My pick of the games are Journey which is as always brilliant.

The other two games are also fun and well worth playing this month if you liked limbo give Badlands a go.

Lords of the fallen is an intresting take on a RPG and is fun and again worthy of playing.

 

 

 

PlayStation Plus September Opinon

The games for Septembers PlayStation Plus are
Journey

Lords of the Fallen

 

Journey

Is a great game and well worth a play however by now I would have though anyone that doesn’t have it just doesn’t want to play it. So as a PS+ game is a bit of a waste.

Lords of the Fallen

I don’t know anything about this game so in that way I’m interested in seeing the video’s I have just seen make it look a little like god of war so it may be interesting at the very least.

 

I’m still holding out that Sony have something planned for PlayStation plus in relation to their Conference on the 7th of September.

 

Time will tell but as of now not a great month for PS+

Febuary a New DOOOR(n)

February has been another busy month, To start we had a new front door fitted. Its double glazed and makes such a difference to the temperature in the hall its amazing. We have also had some builders around that have done some plastering of what we hope to be old damp spots.

I have also been decorating around the in-laws house and fighting a nasty cold. This week of course the kids have been off of school for half term and have the rest of the week to try to keep them entertained.

I still have managed to get some videos out on my YouTube channel and a stream on Twitch part of which I already have put up on YouTube and you will find linked below.

Sadly it would seem that I have lost a couple of my subscribers 😦 But i’m hoping that I’ll soon have much more content up for anyone that actually does enjoy my videos.

I at least enjoy making them 😀

Anyway linked below are some of the more recent videos that i have uploaded this month

Update,News, Youtube and Minecraft

Its been a while since I last posted. It has been a busy few weeks the kids have gone back to school and I have had some drama with the car which fortunately is now working ok and has the MOT for the year. I still have manged for the most part to get videos up on my youtube channel and am keeping to my schedule of uploading something every Tuesday and Thursday. Despite an internet outage to two which meant that I was a little late on one or two of them.

I have also manged to do a few streams on twitch.tv  I stream when i can and when internet allows my latest uploads to YouTube are from a live steam that i did while playing lord of the rings online [lotro]  Part 1 Part 2 . There are more video’s on my channel and I would very much appreciate it if you would like and subscribe.

A few large pieces of news have happened since I last posted, Microsoft buying Minecraft is one. Personally on this I think that even and 2.5billion buying Mojang is a good deal for them however I do worry what it will mean for Minecraft especially on the Playstation format. I hope that Microsoft treat the community right and realise that having it on every platform known to man is a good thing.

As I type in the UK, Scotland are voting either yes or no to decide whether they want to stay part of the UK or if they want to go it alone. So far most of the polls have been very very close. I personally hope that Scotland stay as I do think that we are stronger together than we are apart. I am however getting fed up about all the coverage that there has been about it. As I live in England and am English I don’t get to have a say on the matter but its been all that has been talked about for the last few months. We should know by tomorrow morning either way.

I think that is all for now.

 

I would just like to thank my followers and subscribers and hope that you continue to enjoy my content.
