Epic's Unreal Engine works over RGS, except that the mouse behaves erratically. We've  exhausted our attempts to correct this.

 

We are able to use the USBIP feature of the Linux kernel (on both sender and receiver) to forward a device (in our case a mouse) from the RGS sender OS to the RGS receiver OS. With this forwarding enabled, and for the price of a spare mouse, Unreal works perfectly.

 

However - to make this  work we have to enable "Rgsender.IsBlankScreenAndBlockInputEnabled=1" in the config. This enables the mouse-forwarding, but introduces an uncomfortable compromise wrt privacy and security.

 

My feature requests in descending order of usefulness:

  1. Add the USB forwarding feature to RGS on Linux, even if it's just for Linux -> Linux connections.
  2. In /etc/opt/hpremote/rgsender/rgsenderconfig, allow the user to selectively enable one or more USB devices that are 'attached' to the sender.
  3. In /etc/opt/hpremote/rgsender/rgsenderconfig, allow the user to blank the screen without blocking input devices.

Any one of these features would be very helpful for us.

 

Thanks to the RGS team for a great product.

Hi Donalm, We are working on a fix for the erratic mouse behavior. When we have something, we'll reach out to you to try it in a test (non-production) build.
