Wacom laggy pen movement?


Lads and Ladies, if i may have a second of your lovely time for some help. I have a Wacom Pen and Touch Medium (CTH-680?), runs great with FireAlpaca, but when i try and run it on both 32bit and 64 bit versions of photoshop the pen movement is 'laggy', giving me a rippled effect on my lines. Now before I consider high-fiveing a moving bus with my body, can anyone offer some assistance as to what exactly i have screwed up? I've allowed all my memory to photoshop, turned off flicks and the other stuff in the Pen and Touch part of the control panel, stopped Tablet PC Input in Services (and set it to manual activation). Have the latest drivers for windows 7, photoshop and the tablet. If its any help to y'all my specs are: AMD 965 Black Edition CPU 3.4ghz x4 Asus M4A785TD-M EVO M/Board 6gb 1600mhz ram 2 HDDs, 1 being 500GB and the other 1TB HIS IceQ 6970 2GB GPU

    i'll reinstall the drivers again just to make sure, and i recall having this problem when I first started using, hence why i moved to FireAlpaca.

Is it Photoshop CC 2014? if not disregard.

If it is then it is something that has changed within photoshop to do with the API.

If you untick use inking that should resolve your issues but then you limit your tablet. Best is to make user cfg file.


C:\Users[your profile]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 Settings

open up notepad and enter

"# Use WinTab

UseSystemStylus 0"

Without the quotes

Save it as PSUserConfig.txt

All should be well.


I had a Similer problem afew weeks ago, I just reinstalled the table and pen and it worked fine, not sure if that helps as it's not exscatly the same as your problem. There's allways google for help
