Hello All,


Quick question.... as I am considering buying a Windows 8 Touch Screen tablet (Full Windows Not RT).

Does Army Builder Support a touch Screen interface ?

Army Builder should work with a touchscreen, but it's not really designed for one, so some controls may be too small to conveniently hit with a touchscreen. I'm afraid there's not really any way to determine whether it'll work well for you or not without trying it - if you know a store that has a tablet near you, you could always go and see if you could try AB in demo mode there?

Don't do it.

It works, but it's virtually unusuable because of the....er....."retro"....nature of the UI.

If you've got a usb port on your new tablet buy a cheap wireless mouse...problem solved.

It works on my wife's Surface Pro. I also use Hero Lab as well.

FYI, the surface comes with a pen for small buttons. It also depends on what resolution you run it at.
