Re: Is X Mouse considered third party software?

"Third Party Software" is basically anything that comes not from the developer of the game. This is taken out of context. They probably referring to a certain kind of software for which they have detection algorithm. The issue is, these algorithms can't be perfect. If they are stupid enough to trigg...

Re: Mouse Acceleration

I also would like to have better control over acceleration, without ever touching that excuse of a software called SetPoint. Humane interface to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Mouse registry branch would be nice. Tbh, I didn't even expect SetPoint to use this registry branch for acceleration, e...

Re: Can you use a controller with Xmouse Button control?

Nintendo Switch Pro controller should appear in Windows as regular DirectInput controller.
Therefore antimicro and J2K should work with it.

Now after looking for Nintendo specific apps, I found:

- WiinUPro - http://www.wiinupro.com/

Even more choice.

Re: Can you use a controller with Xmouse Button control?

Quick look at AlternativeTo.net shows some tools for gamepad (there is more if you include commercial or otherwise dubious software): - antimicro - https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro - J2K - https://emulation-evolved.net/?q=node/19 (not to be mistaken with similarly named commercial tool) XInput...

Re: Reducing Mouse Wheel Sensitivity!!!

Touchpad on my laptop emulates free-spinning wheel, generating a lot of events too. This issue has a lot in common with the scroll emulation issue and my proposal. Part of the implementation of the proposal can most likely be reused for physical scroll behavior override. (I think I'll experiment wit...

Re: XMBC 2.18 Beta

"Staged rollout" seems to be an established term. I would rather call it "gradual rollout". It can also be done mostly on the server side. If software adds the current version info to the updates request, then the server can decide what info to report back. As the first idea of implementation of gra...

Re: XMBC 2.18 Beta

So it's like staged rollout. You can keep it up this way, maybe with some polish on the workflow (publish information about all versions, add info about stages any version belongs to - stage flags or even percentage of users that will get notification). Installed. No deviations in the update process...

Re: Better UI for multiple apps per profile

You can host your own Gitlab by the way. Gitlab is not Github, and you don't even need to host on their servers. This might give a better experience than bare repo and separate tracker... ----- Speaking of documentation, in light of open source talks. I find existing PDF file quite inconvenient. I s...

Re: Better UI for multiple apps per profile

(I didn't move this topic.) Of course everyone could go and make their own tool from scratch. And spend the same number of years to do the low level hook stuff right. Every program is composed of trivial things. Getting them work well together is what requires accumulated experience. Don't just dis...

Re: Better UI for multiple apps per profile

I'm dropping in the ideas so they will be known when you will be touching the relevant code at least. You're going so deep in excuses I'm having a hard time uncover and understand the relevant bits, lol. It would perhaps be easier to break the application chooser down, offering a dropdown/sublist ty...

Better UI for multiple apps per profile

First I brought this up quite some time ago, but it is still an issue for me, deserving it's own topic for discussion. I have a bunch of customizations in the default profile, that don't work well with games. And I have Games profile with minimal customizations. I list game executables in the Appli...

Re: XMBC 2.18 Beta

Profile options -> Enhance pointer precision
Checking this box for the first time doesn't activate Apply button.
And don't forget to add it to the User Guide. (I'd prefer to also have an explanation of what it actually does, but that might be out of scope.)

Re: win 10 notifications not functioning

For me it just opens https://www.highrez.co.uk/downloads/XMo ... ontrol.htm (I can't see beta there and dl it manually from the forum instead)
Is that because I'm using it in portable mode?

Re: "Change Movement to Scroll" - default action triggered after movement

Looks good after one day in use.
Can't get more that 10% load on a single CPU core.
Have no default actions triggered after movement so far.

Re: "Change Movement to Scroll" - default action triggered after movement

Hmm... Bad news. It was all god for a whole day, and then default action started to trigger again and high CPU load on scroll emulation is reproducing too (in version 2.17, modifier keys disabled). No stalled processes this time. But I still can run into the situation when XMBC start to misbehave. S...
