You mean not the forums but the costumers support ?

Thanks Julian, I already tried a usb2serial card to no avail...

Hi,

Still trying to hook my Frankenstiq to my laptop.
I received a new PCMCIA2serial adapter card. I thought the last one I bought was not well. The laptop recognizes it OK but it doesn't find the tablet.
I succeeded installing the tablet with the new adapter on another laptop wich means something in my laptop is wrong... Both laptops work on XP.

It seems the wacom forums are dead.

Thanks

Congrats ! I like your style. Mine is similar, I think.
Talking about rotating canvasses in graphic software, I would like dearly to have a way to shortcut the angle of a brush in PS or elsewhere. Kind of every time one hit "+"   there's a 5 degrees increase clockwise or counter clockwise if one hits a "-".

Have you tried mapping the unused top bit of your tablet to the other screen?

Hmmm... No... Should I ? Why ? There's the metallic socket of the neons in the middle. That's not a problem ?

In fact I am still waiting for my PCMCIA2serial card adapter provider to provide me with another brand of PCMCIA card adapter. The one he sold me really doesn't work with my tablet. Once I have a fonctionnal laptop with a serial socket I will install my simtiq there and re-calibrate the tablet and the screen on double screen mode.

"ORAC from "Blakes Seven"

That's a lore I don't share with you.  Cheesy Being in France and coming from South America... Anyway it looks great in Wikipedia.

"Fawlty Towers" is not bad either.  Cheesy

Hey Drew, I wonder if  it's not time to put my build on the "successful  builds" section.

I followed the method Drew indicates to calibrate the tablet. It works great now !

Thanks again.

Well, I think I finished my build.
Take a look :



The back side :



So I ended up stripping the old back of the monitor and replacing it by a piece of plexi: It was annoying not to have a flat back.

The rubber door-stoppers are very good at holding the screen in a leaning position.

The arrow shows the fan I put at a moment when I thought temperature was important. Actually temperature never rises a lot. I will end stripping that fan at a moment or another.

The build is not totally finished, in fact.  I have jitter. I have a real annoying distance between the stylus and the cursor. VERY difficult to calibrate that tablet.

I am a little bit disappointed that my screen doesn't have a better resolution. I think that if I had to begin all over again, I will take a laptop screen in order to have a better resolution.

I think that when I have the drive to do it I will really clean the screen. Those dust dots ARE annoying. In the long run, I will try to strip the neons off their metal casings. Even flattly replace them by LEDs.

It was a good journey.

Wow! That's amazing... Thanks Drew.

No problemo, Colinus !
Still there?
I thougth you were in Brittanny ! Wink

I am used to work with Photoshop in two monitors. The better one at the left, with only my document. All the palettes in the other.
I discovered it's impossible with a cintiq ! Of course... Kind of annoying...

I switched the battery for another transformator. I mean, not the one that heats. I work like that since an hour ago and everything is OK.

12  Screen Tablet malarky / Successful builds! / Great breakthrough ! on: July 14, 2008, 07:02:15 PM
Well, it was a swift incursion on my build and the result is a great succes !
I was working on that illustration since I don't know when. Interdicting myself to work on the Frankenstiq. I think I finished it (the illustration). But anyway, nobody works on Bastille's Day. So, I was back to my Frankenstiq.

My idea was to shield every pcb with isolated metallic mosquito net. And re-ground everything.

But I had that crazy idea before I began dismantelling everything.

I have already noticed that the transformer of the monitor was unusually hot.

So, I replaced it with a 12 volts lead battery.

I did it in the middle of a "crisis".

The problem was solved.

I could work longer than I ever did before. No interference, no jitter, no DSL modem turned awoc.

The neons were a little hot, so I have yet to test the build a bit longuer, but that's another kind of problem.

I wonder even if people that has so much problems with jittering should not check its transformers.

Youpee.

I was thinking about making  metallic mosquito net shielding. Painted for isolation.

Little cages over the PCBs.
