So, I got my old tablet back from a friend(we swapped tablets, he got the newer one with horrible sensitivity since he only uses it for Osu!). The old one has excellent sensitivity, but I found out it wasn't working anymore. When I pressed on the pen, I learned something annoying. The top half comes off, exposing the electronics and making pressure impossible to put onto it.
I pulled the sucker apart, and found out a couple more annoyances. The copper wire wrapped around the pen-nib holder seems to be getting old, something I can't change, but it's not really a problem. The back button for right-click isn't functional at all, thanks to the entire part coming off, meaning I can't do right clicks with it. I thought this was workable, until I saw it didn't have a spring.
Most tablet pens utilise some for of spring action on the pen-nib, so it can't take pressure based on the tightness of the spring. This time, there wasn't one. So, I tried cannibalizing a spring from an old push pen we had lying around, but I couldn't make it fit properly. I gave up hope of using sensitivity(I discussed making the comic without sensitivity, which would be pretty difficult given most linework looks better with weight), until I plugged in the tablet a little bit ago. The computer wouldn't recognize it, so I restarted. No dice. Now this got me worried. I mean, I understand a pen not working, but the entire tablet? C'mon. To make a short story abnormally longer than it needed to be and than summarize, here's the result. I got the tablet working again, found out it didn't need a spring(thank goodness, but now that poor old pen..), and restarted the service, which for some reason the computer didn't think of doing from the outset. Lo and behold, the sensitivity works again! This means I can finally start drawing fully again, now that I have the old hopefully-reliable.
