Ive been asked at pre-COVID Amiga meets about how to get a graphics tablet for Classic Amigas. Id like to report that Formalin (Tool Type setup and WBStartup drawer usage) works great with a Wacom Pen Partner serial graphics tablets. Settings provided curtesy of Amiga.org:

https://forum.amiga.org/index.php?topic=4169.0

See stefcep2s post at the bottom. I just tweaked the baud rate to 9600 as he was using a high speed serial port and Im not. Just get rid of the brackets on the settings he suggests in the Tool Type and enoy!

@Thread

I'm wondering if anyone has ever got pressure sensitivity working with Deluxe Paint 4.5 or 5? It seems to rely on tablet.library which I have tracked down but I think it only communicates with the Accupoint driver rather than the Formalin driver that works with my Wacom

Any ideas?

Don't worry, I've managed to find help from an active Amiga user off site. He seems to know his stuff!
