Wacom pressure in TVPaint

Does anyone know definitively if WinUAE will properly support pressure sensitivity using any form of Wacom tablet?

Having run tvpaint on an actual Amiga, and going through several serial Wacom tablets, I found that particular mission almost impossible.

I believe that tvpaint only supported certain European serial drawing tablets. Summagraphics and Wacom, and was far before tablet.library came out.

Also has anyone used tablet Library with any modern Wacom tablet and WinUAE and gotten pressure to work?

I don't know.

It is really difficult to find out which programs support which kind of pressure method, there are different libraries, different tablets. No one seems to use KS 2/3.x tablet input... Some programs may directly read the tablet, some may use (undocumented) 3rd party libraries.

Serial tablets are not yet emulated because there is no reason. Reason == find program that really requires specific type of tablet hardware. Must be confirmed! (Either using real hardware and finding trustworthy document/description/whatever. Manuals can lie.)

Tablet command specifications are much more important than model of tablet.
