Re: Sluggish "mouse over" detection

OK Some progress... Looks like its nothing to do with my timers. Actually what is happening, is that the reported mouse cursor position is incorrect (when chrome is maximized) and the mouse moved rapidly to the top of the screen. I'm seeing negative Y position values (-3, -5 etc) - ie, off the top o...

Re: Sluggish "mouse over" detection

As I said, I expected it wouldn't make a difference, but I needed to be sure.
I'll try and have a look when I get home from work and get back to you if I find anything of note.

Re: Sluggish "mouse over" detection

The process over has changed in 2.18, but it has always been intentionally lagged to some extent - that is, because mouse over detection is quite CPU heavy, it runs on a timer not every time the mouse moves by a single pixel... The timer fires 50ms after the mouse movement (if I recall correctly a -...

Re: Problem of wheel scroll during drag and drop

its not really even a feature... Its a side effect of how XMBC does things, and that side effect got changed, causing the way it worked to change. I didn't know it worked that way either (esp. as I don't normally remap mouse wheel up/down to the wheel up/down dropdowns - who'd have thought?!) But th...

Re: Problem of wheel scroll during drag and drop

The good news, I found the change in 2.18 that caused this change in behavior. The bad news, I don't really understand why the change causes this problem. However, I can revert that particular change though and I hope it wont cause any problems elsewhere. This will get fixed in the next version - th...

Re: Keyboard 'Ctrl' provokes scrolling... Possible? How?

Yes it might work in some cases, but as I said, for anything that blocks simulated input, that wont work because the injected CTRL will not be received.
And that's quite a big problem - maybe it wont affect you but anyone that uses XMBC in apps/games that don't like injected keys will be screwed!

Re: Keyboard 'Ctrl' provokes scrolling... Possible? How?

Hi, yes the inability to block the keys is a known problem with layer modifier keys... Unfortunately its simply not possible to block keys without breaking sooo much of Windows functionality. I cant block the key on the assumption hat you *may* want to use it to switch layers, because if you don't, ...

Re: Can I simulate a key e.g. {UP} when I pressed right mouse button (not released) and wheel up?

I think Jack6th means he wants to send the UP key when holding the right mouse button and scrolling the wheel up? If so, then yes you can do this with "Button Chording". Button Chording allows you to define different actions to buttons/wheel while a button is held down so in effect two buttons at a ...

Re: XMBC can't recognize horizontal scroll of my mouse

A good thought, but because its a touchpad (I think) then I suspect it will fail to work at all without a driver.
Its worth a try though!

Re: Keyboard 'Ctrl' provokes scrolling... Possible? How?

Hi Mark, Its not currently possible. But I think there is an item on the todo list to enable this functionality which will probably go into the next version. It will do this by adding an action to be enabled when switching to a layer (without having to press a button). Then you should be able to set...

Re: phpBB help needed -- signature not appearing

Nothing, I think signatures are disabled until you transition from new users to normal users (after 4 or 5 posts I think).
So the problem should go away after your next post.

This is doe intentionally because most spammers put links in their signature and this was a quick way of stopping that!

Re: Is X Mouse considered third party software?

As Killy said, Third party simple means not made by the game manufacture or supplied by them (or required by them). So ANYTHING on your system that they did not provide is 3rd party software! Many games consider it cheating to insert/inject keystrokes. If you are using XMBC to gain an advantage over...

Re: Problem of wheel scroll during drag and drop

For starters why have you mapped the wheel up/down to wheel up/down? What is the point of that and why does leaving it as "nothing (don't intercept)" not work (or does it actually work better?) Having, checked, I don't believe it works better - that is it aborts the drag here too. Interestingly with...

Re: XMBC can't recognize horizontal scroll of my mouse

OK, I'm afraid the driver is clearly doing something different than the standard Windows tilt messages used to scroll in most applications. It must be sending different messages (probably a HSCROLL message or something) which XMBC will not see, and will not work in some other windows. And without th...
