Re: XMBC vs. wine in linux

For me currently: MS Office 2007 SP2 works almost perfectly - I use it daily. Games - still performance is lower espiecially if the game does not support OpenGL mode. I've played Warcraft 3 (only issue - described with XMBC), Counter Strike 1.6 runs perfectly for ages, almost every Source-engine gam...

Re: XMBC vs. wine in linux

Yes it does (tested under Windows 2003 and XP Home) - so probably it's a wine bug.
It may have been fixed recently - half a year is a lot of time in such a dynamic project like wine.
I'll install Warcraft in wine ~next week and retest the issue.

Re: XMBC vs. wine in linux

Everybody asks for more buttons, the problem remains the same - Windows does not support them natively. ;) I don't know how does the linux driver for razor mouses (or other multi-button) is written - hopefully every extra button is supported in the same way as the others - if requested we may get th...

Re: XMBC vs. wine in linux

It's working!

Currently I don't have mouse with more buttons - but in linux we might get them quite easily and translate to use them in XMBC.

My mouse doesn't have tilt wheel, it is unsupported by wine itself, so Office mode is just perfect for me. ;)

Re: XMBC vs. wine in linux

Ok, We're almost there. XMBC log: http://pastebay.com/126784 modified mouse.c : http://pastebay.com/126785 (modifications: line 70 → to increase total 72-126 as for middle mouse button, 1327 - 1331 and 1356-1360 added. ) XMBC ignores dwExtraInfo = 0x400 - it's detected as normal middle mouse butto...

Re: XMBC vs. wine in linux

We may start with just one button using Office Mode of XMBC - just to prove this idea works - as this mode is already implemented, You won't need to modify GUI at all.

If we succeed, we will think about further buttons.

XMBC vs. wine in linux

As You already know, (look for my posts;) I'm linux user and I like to play some games under wine ;) It've got a crazy idea: to use more buttons in XMBC under wine by breaking/extending windows API compatibility. Windows sucks in case of extra mouse buttons (as it doesn't support enough buttons by d...

Amfilter.sys - the way A4tech achieves extra buttons

OK, once again, I'm trying to get office button of my A4 Tech mouse working with XMBC. I'm not expecting anyone to rewrite the drivers - but everybody would like to see working more buttons in XMBC, as they work in vendor provided software. The key in A4 Tech case is "A4Tech Mouse Filter Driver" →...

Re: OfficeMouse mode question

You mean in OfficeMouse mode WM_MBUTTONDOWN with dwData = 0x0400 (type DWORD) are caught? or it is really dwExtraInfo (type ULONG_PTR) as You called called it? // I thought any non-standard button (other then LMB, RMB, MMB and WHEEL) are handled via WM_XBUTTONDOWN with proper dwData, that's why I as...

OfficeMouse mode question

Could You please tell me what signals are excepted to be caught by "Middle Button 2" ? As I read here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms646260(VS.85).aspx extra keys are achieved via MOUSEEVENTF_XDOWN and MOUSEEVENTF_XDOWN and dwData = 0x0001 and 0x0002 - they are back and forward keys, as I...

Re: What mice work with XMBC?

I also expected it, don't worry ;) I also understand that writing mouse drivers is not the way You want to spend your free time ;) If I could add just another idea to the endless wishlist: Maybe I'm wrong, but it might be much easier to catch the events with vendor provided software, and "redirect" ...

Re: What mice work with XMBC?

I've just tested the "office mode" - unfortunately it does not work with my A4Tech mouse. :(
VID:09DA PID:000A


If you have any idea how can I help to improve this mode - just write.

Re: What mice work with XMBC?

I'm using relatively cheap A4Tech evolution Glaser 70D - USB, @Windows Server 2003 and Debian Linux 4 and 5 buttons work, the 6th, "office button" is ofc unsupported - A4Tech provide support tool which permit to bind it, but it's much less powerful then XMBC. (Sometimes under Windows I use both - In...

Re: Xkeyboard button control ?.

Although it's probably not so easy to implement, and It might require long hours of coding, I think such program would be much better solution then two different programs. I found XMBC awesome, but possibility of binding macros, remapping the keyboard etc would make XMBC at least twice as awesome as...

Re: Wine on Linux and Warcraft 3 issue

I've just created appdb entry in Wine AppDB:

I'll try to create bugzilla entry if I find a way to provide some good debug info.
