linux_blacklist_kinectvideo Blacklist file for Linux, to be copied into the
/etc/modprobe.conf/ directory. Disables the Linux
standard video driver for Microsoft Kinect box. Allows
use of the Kinect with PsychKinect() driver et al.
See ‘help InstallKinect’.

ATIRadeonperf ATIRadeonperf_Linux and ATIRadeonperf_Windows.exe are
compiled Linux and Windows executables that are called
as helpers from the function PsychGPUControl() via a
system() call, ie., they execute in the system shell as
separate processes.

                         These binaries perform the actual GPU setup work on behalf  
                         of [PsychGPUControl](PsychGPUControl)() using ATI/AMD proprietary low-level  
                         API's. The API's are available to registered developers from  
                         AMD/ATI as "ADL SDK" without royalty fees. While the SDK  
                         license does allow redistribution of executables using the  
                         SDK, it doesn't allow redistribution in source code form.  
                         For that reason, these tools are only made available as  
                         precompiled binaries for your use, not under any open-source  
                         or free-software license. The tools were compiled by Mario  
                         Kleiner, so contact him if you have further questions about  
                         the tools.  

AutoBrightness Obsolete: Use MacDisplaySettings() instead.

                         Helper function [AutoBrightness](AutoBrightness) allows to control the  
                         setting of the "Automatically adjust brightness" control  
                         on Apple OSX, ie., it allows to control if display brightness  
                         should be automatically adjusted based on ambient light, or not.  
                         This uses [AppleScript](AppleScript) for its job. It may not work reliably on  
                         future OSX versions and will not work on other operating  
                         systems. Tested on OSX 10.10. Contributed by Denis Pelli. Zip file containing the Microsoft Windows
drivers and installer that are needed to
use the Microsoft XBOX Kinect under
Windows. Type “help PsychKinect” for more
infos. The PsychSourceGL/Cohorts/
file contains corresponding source code.

MacDisplaySettings Allows temporary override of any macOS user customization
of the display, to allow calibration and user testing with
stable display settings.

WinJoystickMex WinJoystickMex is a very simple/rudimentary
joystick driver for basic query of position
and button state of joysticks under
MS-Windows, written by Mario Kleiner. The
code is contributed under GPLv2.

WinTab/ This folder contains the (unsupported!)
WinTabMex MEX file driver (and its C source
code) for controlling touch/digitizer
tablets via the WinTab API on Microsoft
Windows operating systems. It also contains
some basic usage instructions and two M-File
demos, contributed by Andrew Wilson.

gpuclockctrl A version of gpuclockctrl compiled for 64-Bit Linux on Intel.
This should be part of FeralInteractive’s gamemode package,
but was missing at least in the v1.3.1 ppa, so we deliver
our own copy as a stop-gap measure until the Ubuntu ppa’s
are fixed. Gets auto-installed by PsychLinuxConfiguration if
appropriate. Works at least on Ubuntu 18.04-LTS and 19.04,
with NVidia and AMD graphics.
