Minor: Mousepointer @VSync

Postby fingus » Wed Mar 26, 2014 1:51 pm

It would look awesome smooth if the Mousepointer-movement will be updated @VSync-Refresh rate like in the old days of Classic Amigas.

I know that the polling for the most USB-Mouse devices is around 120-125 Hz.
The most People using LCD-TFT this days which have often 60Hz refresh-frequency.
So it shouldn´t be hard to trigger the Mousepointer-movement-output to this frequency!?

This has surely a minor priority but maybe not hard to implement and it will be a very nice eye-candy.

I wrote a whole lot of crap here about Intutuion, but I'll erase it all.

I don't remember how a USB mouse driver updates the mouse position on the display, but Intuition has to redraw the pointer at its basic rate (10/sec) and that is probably the limitation.
