Raw input allows osu! to read mouse/tablet values directly from the hardware, without any post-processing. As a result, it can bypas windows bugs and acceleration algorithms. It can also allow for tablet sensitivity adjustment without setting a custom tablet area mapping at driver-level.

Why did you even bother adding this? Input was fine already.

It fixes an issue with Windows 8.1 where mouse sensitivities other than 1.0x not working correctly.

Should I use raw input?

Try it and see if you like it. Some users will still prefer leaving it off if they enjoy windows mouse acceleration (known as "Enhance Precision" in newer windows versions).

Why doesn't it work with Wacom tablets?

Wacom tablets use proprietary drivers, which don't conform to hardware standards. I may look at adding support for them later.

My latency is more than 1ms. Add a new fps limiter option to make it 1ms without being unlimited.

No. Latencies for 3-8ms are not perceivable by humans. If you believe you need 1ms then use unlimited and pay the extra power bill.

oh wow, I'll prove it in a while.

EDIT> Well, the first problem is that the selector down to only 0.5x.
Because I have a Genius mouse of 1200dpi, I play on the laptop to 480pdi (ie multiplying 0.4x), and 560dpi in the desktop (ie 0.46x).

With this new feature, I think it is important to allow more flexibility in choosing the multiplier. I wish I could choose at least 2 digits after the dot.

Good Job :D

It makes it almost impossible to use with tablets, like it makes the game fullscreen meaning you have to move more making it almost impossible to play.

Is there anyway around this?

Works great! Only issue I have is that it's impossible to log in or out while it's enabled, the cursor just flies around everywhere.

Increase active area in the driver I guess? The in-game sensitivity option works but the cursor isn't confined in the window properly, which is frustrating if you tap accidentally and it loses focus.

The cursor IS confined to the window. If it isn't, report this as a bug, because it is incorrect. Tablet works fine at any sensitivity for me (osu!tablet).

I just checked and indeed it is! No idea why it wasn't for me earlier :).

Thanks you ! :D I upgraded to 8.1 literally just yesterday and was feeling the mouse felt sort of off.

I strongly disagree with this change. I play in windowed because I want to be able to go to other windows outside of my osu! window. I can't do that without switching to my mouse when there should be no reason for me not to be able to just tap it with my tablet.

I also got used to the area of the tablet with osu! in windowed, now that it treats osu! as the full area it is completely different. Do the huion drivers allow for you to change the area or is there just no way to change it back to the area I was used to as of now?

Edit: I messed around with changing the tablet speed a bit, and it kinda help definitely does not fix the problem. The area around the outside of the osu window isn't clickable because the cursor goes right back onto osu, completely skipping that area. It also just doesn't go up in fine enough increments for my liking. Really I'd rather just have a way to turn off Raw Imput. Not giving us the option to turn it off is just silly.

Is there a way to deactivate it permanently? Everytime I try, it automatically turn itself on.

That is the exact same problem I have! I have the same type of tablet drivers also but I don't see how changing something in the drivers would help :/.
Also, why can't it be a choice on whether to have raw input on or not because it automatically makes it on whenever I do anything with my tablet on osu!.

I already have it set to be full screen so I don't know how to change it otherwise :/

That's strange, for me the tablet cursor is neither confined to the osu! window, and is using the entire screen as the active area, just as before. At least, at the main menu, when in a song I think it is confined to the window.

That's exactly the way it was before the update, maybe you didn't install the update?

Edit: Ok, so I thought about this some more. Is the reason that the cursor is locked in the window because otherwise the raw imput wouldn't be happening? If that is the way it works then I understand why it is locked down the way it is, but the above problems still exist.

No, I've definitely installed the update.

I will likely add a way to disable it for supported devices in the next update. Please wait calmly until then.

Would it be possible to make it so that the area acts the same as it was before (with the area of the tablet being to your full monitor) with 1.0 speed in game and get raw imput or is that not doable?

Guys can recommend me tablets that can run Osu?(PC VER )
Coz I'm not sure which one could :/

After this patch when not playing (when spectating) my fps is 60, which is lower than my refresh rate(75hz). This makes the game look choppy.

Edit: Woops, didn't read the title. Thought this was the latest patch thread.

This is a excellent change in general, but especially for win 8.1 users, thanks a lot Peppy!
