Re: Thanks to Phil, plus 2 minor questions.

Why can't you just let people set the key right there? Or have a reminder at the top of what the trigger key is. Yes that might be a good option, I will certainly have a think about it, the only confusion is that it applies to all application/window profiles, but I can probably word it such that th...

Re: Thanks to Phil, plus 2 minor questions.

Interesting ideas and by no means not crazy, and if I had all the time in the world I might well consider them but quite frankly, the GUI development is the most difficult bit of XMBC - being C++ it takes ages to get it "right" and the changes you suggest while perhaps sensible, would be a complete ...

Re: Thanks to Phil, plus 2 minor questions.

Hi, Actually your two questions are somewhat related. Layers allow you to assign different functions to buttons for an application profile that you can quickly switch between with the mouse or hotkeys (/modifier keys). So actually, with layers, you can achieve your second question (functionality of ...

Re: 2.11.1 -> 2.17: Change Movement to Scroll stopped working

You will be able to post URLs once you have at least 3 or 4 posts - this is to reduce spam (which is an ever increasing problem). I'm starting to think there may be some issues with sticky buttons in 2.17 (there were but I'm not sure if this was one of them), that I may have fixed in 2.18 - I'll try...

Re: 2.11.1 -> 2.17: Change Movement to Scroll stopped working

change movement to scroll was changed quite considerably between 2.11 and 2.17 (I can remember which version specifically) but now you have one change movement to scroll and a configuration window to set it up. It is possible the the "upgrade" didn't quite get the settings right and you need to open...

Re: Layer tabs after 2not showing

Not sure its described in the manual, but in the general settings screen, change number of layers to something greater than 2 :).

Thanks,

Re: Problem with layer 2 modifier key among other.

Yes the {RELEASE}{CTRL} is a good idea.. but Im a little worried about what state it leaves things in (should you send an {PRESS}{CTRL} again afterwards?! Im simply not sure!

Re: just a TEST reporting

But, set MMB to SimKey {SHIFT}S (for typing Large-S w/o CapsLock) on Layer-3, presed [CTRL] and MMB, then "Save as" panel was open ( CTRL + SHIFT + S ) too... :( Yes that is expected because you are after all holding CTRL down to switch layers. XMBC can not block the CTRL key (or any key) even temp...

Re: Problem with layer 2 modifier key among other.

Definitely worth trying the beta then because that is the area where I have made the most fixes as others found problems in the newer functionality (chords and button held). If the problems still exist in the beta I need to know so I can try again to fix them lol :).

Re: Problem with layer 2 modifier key among other.

Just noticed you are using the portable mode. Thats a bit more tricky to use the beta because I dont generally build portable beta versions. You can extract the EXE and DLL files from the beta installer and use them as portable but its a bit more work, I think there is a "how to" do that in the beta...

Re: Problem with layer 2 modifier key among other.

I'm a busy this weekend so this will be quick and lite! 1. Can you send me a copy of your profile (so I can try and reproduce) 2. It sounds like CTRL is being held down (CTRL+ESC) brings up the windows menu (WIN key) 3. Can you try 2.18 beta 9 - lots of fixes for "button held" in there and see if it...

Re: Rapid Fire - Simulated Repeat

In theory this should already be possible, by changing the "Delay between simulated keys" on the advanced setting tab it increases the delay between each key (on in this case between the press and release of the button). It should also be possible using the following... {PRESS}{LMB}{WAITMS:100}{RELE...

Re: Windows Pointer Speed ignored, overwritten?

XMBC reads the windows setting when it launches and is supposed to revert to that when it exits. When you change the slider in XMBC, it modifies the windows setting because its the same setting after all. However, it is possible, if you change the slider in Windows, XMBC is not noticing that and the...

Re: The mouse button in game is pressed even if it is disabled by XMBC.

Games that use Raw Input can not be affected by XMBC. Raw input happens at a lower level than XMBC works at (mouse hooks) and cant be blocked.
This is stated many times, in the FAQ and here on the forums.

Sorry, nothing I can do about it.

Re: Feature Request: NEW SimKey tag to input TEXT with IME

Oh, I thought you could use hex in VKC using 0x*** - certainly you can when using the relatively new {postwm} amd {sendwm} tags. If its not there for VKC/EXT tags then I should add it!
