[Touchscreen] Can't select tasks at the before-night screen

[Touchscreen] Can't select tasks at the before-night screen

Postby Aqualize » Tue Dec 08, 2015 8:12 pm

I recently came back to play TWoM, now on my Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro ultrabook/tablet (screen can fold 360 degrees).
I commute to work and have started playing the game and use the machine as a tablet with touchscreen. This problem might also appear on other tablets but I have not tested.

Mostly everywhere the touch-click (on screen) works as doing things like the left mouse button (LMB). But on the screen for selecting what people should do during the night ("Scavenge/Guard/Sleep/Sleep in bed") there is a problem. The item lights up (glows) but doesn't get checked when I touch-click it on the screen. If I click with the normal laptop touchpad (even "tap"-click) it checks the radiobutton. And it does seemingly "move" the invisible mouse pointer because I can use the touchscreen to highlight (glow) e.g. Sleep on one shelter member, then click the touchpad LMB, touch-screen the next shelter member's night occupation and again just LMB check it without moving the mouse pointer with the touchpad.

Other info:
Runs Windows 10. Screen is a 3200x1800 pixel 13.3" display. The built-in video chip doesn't handle it so I run the game at half x/y resolution (1600x900) at Low quality.

In device manager the screen is a "Generic PnP Monitor" so I guess touch functionality is done by some other device. There are a lot of devices under "Human Interface Devices", among them "HID-compliant touch screen". All these have "Microsoft" as driver provider so it doesn't seem to be any Lenovo specific. Also heard that the touch screen works on Linux for this machine so it seems to be quite generic.
