Pressure Sensitivity : Galaxy Note S-Pen

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Sep 21, 2012 2:27 pm

Hello,

I do not know if this is at all possible but thought I would ask anyway....

Would there be any way of integrating the Galaxy Note S-pen SDK into Construct 2?

I have a Galaxy Note 5.3" and there are very few great drawing apps for it even though it has 256 levels of pressure and quite a bit of power.

I am looking into to making one or at least conducting a few experiments.

Deviant Art Muro is browser based and you can install a plug-in to make it work with a Wacom Tablet. I do not think this works on tablets though.

Do you mean detecting pressure sensitivity at runtime, or in the editor?

Hi Ashley,

Thank you for the reply.

I meant at runtime.

Hello again,

I am sure you are really busy and there have been loads of posts since I first asked but do you think the above will be possible with C2?

Thank you.

I don't think this will be possible in the near future.
Galaxy note is a gingerbread device, Android WebView on gingerbread doesn't even support normal multitouch, so I doubt that will support S-Pen pressure values.
On the other side accelerated wrappers like Directcanvas or CocoonJS have both problems on the input side (passing motion sensors and touch values to a custom accelerated canvas seems a tricky task on Android, in fact there's not yet accelerometer support on cocoonJS and as Ken from appmobi said in this forum when the accelerometer listener is activated android directanvas is slower than software rendering).

Thanks for the reply Knifegrinder.
My note is running the latest Ice Cream Sandwich.

You are probably right though. If desktops require a Wacom plugin to allow pressure sensitivity on a web browser. Wacom would probably need to create something similar to allow this on an Android device.

Infinite Painter is really good anyway and the developer is very responsive. I am certain his app is just going to get better and better. I just wish Autodesk would add blur and smudge to Sketchbook.
