Support for Apple Magic Trackpad 2?
« on: 05:11 AM - 01/06/20 »
My father has hand tremors and we're trying to use a magic trackpad instead of a mouse with the XIM Apex so he can play. 

Unfortunately it looks like the Magic Trackpad 2 only reports about once every 90 milliseconds. It results in super laggy slow motion even with the Apex set to the lowest setting.

Is there a way to get the XIM to support the Magic Trackpad 2?

Welcome to the community. Unless the trackpad can poll at a faster rate, XIM won't be able to properly support it. The lowest polling rate of XIM APEX is 125Hz.

Perhaps you can try to use Sync at Common or Slow to see if it affects performance. You'll need to enable Expert configuration mode in XIM APEX Manager > Global Settings to access Sync.

Have you considered a trackball mouse? Some XIM gamers have reported using them successfully with XIM APEX.
