How to get 4096 levels of pressure from the new Surface Pen? RRS feed

  • Question

  • The Surface Pen model 1776 gives 4096 levels of pressure and 1024 levels of tilt. However, in POINTER_PEN_INFO  the pressure is normalized to 0..1024 and tilt to -90..90. I understand that it's possible to get this info through WM_INPUT, but that's a whole separate can of worms that needs to be opened just for a bit of extra data. Is it possible to get the new high-res pressure data without using Raw Input?
