    Question Suitable tablet for Artrage?

    I have been using Artrage for a few weeks now but I have been using mouse and keyboard on a desktop PC and have been finding it difficult to draw smooth lines and details using a mouse, although I have got better over time. However I think I'll need to buy a tablet if I really want to get anywhere. Can you get away with using cheaper end tablets or will the software only work on certain ones? I'm kind of on a budget so cant really afford some 700 job. Can anyone recommend a good and reasonably priced tablet for Artrage?

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world

    you would want a tablet that supports tilt for the pencils and some other tools (custom brush, for example) performing in the most realistic way

    an intuos pro (either 2017 model, or a 2014 one if you can find it cheaper) will last you years and will be a better choice.

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Wacom-Intuo...1&sr=8-2-fkmr1 this is decent size.

    this one is newer and supposedly better, larger working area too.

    Rondo, I am looking at a GT 220 from Huion but was not sure if Artrage would would with that brand name so you are having no problems with the drivers? I was looking at a Wacom Cintique but the lesser known brands are starting to climb up there in quality now and I am hearing good things and Huion has really caught my eye so if you have the time would love the input.

    I began with the Adesso Z12, I do not know if it still exists, if so, then in other dimensions or proportions... it was a 9x12 (I think) graphic tablet, what I thought was important was that ===> it had approximately the same size as my laptop screen (<= 14") so painting on the tablet gave me the same "feeling" of size as what I saw on the screen.

    It had a decent price and performed well with AR. Actually, it came with AR 2.5 (and infected me with the AR-Virus, do you know if there are remedies out there against that virus? ) and Adobe Photo Shop Elements 7.

    Now as I wanted to be "freed" from that chain to the/a computer, I got a Surface Pro4 without a keyboard... It feels like I can paint anywhere I want.. just like with a piece of paper and pencil. But I still use the Adesso tablet from time to time, it is 6 y old and still works perfectly.
