I have one (Windows 8.1) PC set up for gaming only, and I can control that for the most part using VNC from Linux. The problem is however that controling the mouse in games (Tested using Dragon Age: Origins and Deus Ex: Human Revolution) moves the mouse in 'blocks'. Instead of smoothly moving the mouse like on the desktop, it behaves as if there was a 'move camera 3cm to the left/right/up/down' command. How could I make the mouse move smoothly?
My second question would be why the ESC key does not work? I assume it is some sort of 'security' feature, but I kinda need it for menus to work (Win+X also does not work... ). Is there something I can do here?
The entire point of this is to use my Linux Laptop as a controller. I am using VNC currently as that was the easiest to set up, however I am open to using other programs (remember, they do not necessarily have to steam video to my laptop, just allow me to control the game running on the other computer).
