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.

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+

Lets Play Christmas Shopper Simulator

Its been a while since I made a post here. What can I say life has once again a bit of a nightmare. Fortunately everyone is OK but we really could do with some calmer months ahead.

Anyway today I present you with too new videos from a game released by the video game retailer GAME.

Init you play a Christmas shopper that receives a list of tasks from a payphone and you have to fight through the crowds and Christmas decorations to get what you need in the time limit.

Or you kick balls and presents into people’s faces.

There is actually a lot to do and you have a list of achievement’s that you can complete or you can just trash the place and be a general menace.

Here are to video’s I threw together.

 

 

Lets Play World of Warcraft

World of Warcraft. Is a game that never really hooked me. I tried once died quickly and bounced right off.

I never got hooked like how the rest of the internet and alot of my internet friends did.
Its one of the most successful MMO’s ever and I have never understood why.

Perhaps I never really gave it a fair chance or perhaps it was just the race I chose that I didn’t connect with and so, with WOW being in the press again and with many, many years under its belt and with several big expansions I thought that I would give it a chance once again by downloading and playing the trial version.

So my latest video is the first hour or so of game-play which does unfortunately ends up with the game crashing on me.

Expect more and tune in every tuesday and thursday for more videos

The End of Games For Windows Live….. Or Prehaps Not

It had been widly reported that come the end of the 31st of june the much maligned and some would say hated games for windows live would become no more as microsoft were set to switch it off for good.

This would have left several games unplayable with out a patch not unlike the recent closure of gamespy.

However according to MCV this is not happening and microsoft themselfs saying that they are continuing to support the platform which is good for games that rely on it and didnt look like they would have had any chance of a patch.

It’s good news for the games that were in limbo and for the players that still play them.

The big question is what have Microsoft got planned for games for Windows live now? What do they have planned for the pc? Time will only tell.
