Did any of you tried to set the values to 109 and see how it reacted? Setting it to 109 will give it a higher priority..

As stated before this is not a fix... for me its just a solution for the slow rendering when touching the screen at the moment. The real fix will consist of a lot of cleaning up of the garbage code in touch.dll like removing debug, cube code etc.

I am working on it but dont expect a quick fix on that, because basically the complete dll needs to be rebuild from asm and then the stripping can begin. So for people that dont have any issues the reg hack is great, but any problems that arise from it all comes down to the fact that the touch.dll is one big pile of $#%.

Also noticed that scrolling is much better when Priority is set to 255, but the screen becomes unresponsive to touch for a few seconds in iGO8.3 when I browse the map or when the map is shown. Setting the priority to 109 or even 200 fixes the iGO problem, but I found that scrolling in All Programs becomes as slow as it was before.

As the screen only becomes unresponsive when it starts to build up the map, I will leave my settings at 255 as i am not touching the screen while driving anyway.

Just tested, seems to work better than before. Also tested with value=200, a bit worse than with 255.

I underlined "seems" because I think udK cooked some improvements into scrolling. At least in programs-folder when you scroll slowly it is soft as hell. If you scroll a bit and put off your finger it gradually gets slower, really nice done.

Don´t know if this is also an improvement in the touch.dll ?

to rogro82: big thanks for starting the thread, just another "how-can-we-improve-our-polaris-so-it-becomes-an-awesome-device"-thread, like the P3D-thread.

regards,

Rog, why is it that this only works on Polaris? Because the HD doesn't seem to have that issue when touching the screen. I imagine the Polaris is a hastily created device by HTC. The HD seems much more finetuned.
