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.

New batch of lets play video’s

I have been pretty busy on the video front. I have several new videos on my youtube Channel

Check it out Here.

 

Main recent videos of not as far as I’m concerned are

Let’s Play World of Guns Tutorial Parts 1 and 2

World of guns is a game where you have a 3d model of a gun in this instance an ak47 and you can disassemble and reassemble it. The game part is pitting you against your friends and the world and challenges you to disassemble and reassemble in the fastest time possible while remembering which part goes where.

The 3d models seem very accurate and things like xray mode and split mode which allow you to fire the gun and see how it works make this game really interesting if your even remotely interested in guns or how they work.

 

Let’s Play Don’t Starve Day 7-8

The next part in my Don’t Starve let’s play series. I’m really enjoying this still have no idea what im doing as you maybe able to tell but at least im not dead yet.

 

Let’s Play Simraceway. Race!

I love racing games but it can be very difficult to play and record them. This is one of the two video’s that I have done playing the game Simraceway a really good Free to Play racing game on PC. For anyone interested I was using a Playstation 3 controller with MotionJoy to control the car. I can tell you it was a pain in the butt to get working but it is an ok way to control them if you don’t have a wheel. Unfortunately I didn’t count on the lag both network and fps.

 

 

There are a few more videos as well that I have uploaded Including a nice trailer for Project Cars [That game is looking amazing] And I have a load more coming soon. Check them out on my channel Here and  if you like what you see please do Subscribe
