Red Dragon Gaming Mouse and X Mouse

Post by Bigvaughn » Fri Jun 23, 2017 3:50 am

Hi, I have a Red Dragon Mammoth mouse which has mouse button 4 and 5 keys however the drivers used with the mouse have these naively bound to ctrl and alt, or also media keys. I read on a random steam page that X - Mouse can rebind these key to just be the normal Mouse 4 and Mouse 5 however I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it, they didn't care to explain either. In a fresh install of X - Mouse clicking these keys doesn't even register on the layers tabs like right click and left click does (the highlighting when a button is pressed) I looked through the faq and have went up and down the options so either i'm blind or something went right over my head. My goal is just to set the buttons to register as a normal mouse button 4 and 5.
Thank you for your time.

First thing to try, remove the driver and use the default windows HID device driver. Does the mouse also have software? you may try disabling/removing that too?

You need to figure out how to get the mouse back to being a default mouse device that sends default mouse messages, then XMBC should work!

Thanks,
Phil

Remove the driver of it and on the default windows driver.
