Well, its been a while (where has the time gone?) but here is 2.18 Beta 12 (with very few changes I'm afraid).

If you have check for beta versions enabled, you should get notified of a new version and prompted to update in the next day or so. This is the most efficient method (bandwidth wise) as the updates are only a fraction of the size of the full install. Otherwise, you can get the full installation beta HERE. Note that this link will always get you the latest beta version!

Changes since v2.18 Beta 11:
  • #579 - Release held remapped button when switching layers and re-press on the new layer
  • #577 - Fix issue with some translations. Split up some simkey translations into separate lines and added {LMBU}/{LMBD} etc.
There ARE language template changes in 2.18 beta 12 - in fact that is the main thing that has changed!
language_template.xmbclp
Any problems, PM me a copy of the debug log file (or post a snippet in a code block here).

Thanks,
Phil

Bug report:

I have been used the CTRL key as a layer modifier (Layer-3). In beta 12, it seems that "CTRL + MMB4" or "CTRL + MMB5" will be transmitted when only CTRL key is pressed, and XMBC further remapps "CTRL + MMB 4/5" to MMB4/MMB5's SIMKEYS of Layer-3. Even after releasing CTRL key up, the yellow-highlight-indication of MMB4 and MMB5 does not disappear.

Is it related to above...? Also, the frequency with which the LEFT or RIGHT button is kept depressed during FIREFOX running (even still backgrounded) is increasing, in this beta. :(


For the Translation template:

The line #439: I think that it should be correct.
"\t\t\te.g. {LMBD}, {LMBU}, {RMBD}, {RMBU}, {MB4D}, {MB5U} etc." => ""

The line #441: "Numeric keyoad tags: ..." is not displayed even in English screen (w/o any translation).

Thanks,
suke

Urm - eek... I made this change (#579) about 3 months ago but have not gotten around to publishing it until today...
The idea is that if you release the modifier key, it should release the layer's button and repress the button on the layer that was switched back to... But it sounds like there are some unintended side effects...

Certainly, it should not trigger any buttons when you simply press CTRL - thats odd.

Ive no idea what you mean by "Also, the frequency with which the LEFT or RIGHT button is kept depressed during FIREFOX running (even still backgrounded) is increasing, in this beta. :( " Have you remapped the left or right buttons? If not, there should be no impact... Its worth looking in the log file (with debug logging turned off) maybe I left some hard coded debug messages in there which could be delaying things - not something Ive noticed myself over the past few months though... so Im not sure.

As for the translation - yes, looks like I may have got that wrong - I'll check - and "Numeric keyoad tags" should be "Numeric keyboard tags" - again probably a screw up when I split the text up.. Will check and sort that (at least they are easy, even if I should have caught them before releasing it!)
The good news is that I hope the next beta will be available a little quicker (although the main issue may take some time to diagnose, I hope its not several months!)

Thank you for quick replying.

Now there are many problem, i will rollback into Beta11, so please wait for the Beta12's log for a while.
And, it may be a problem that compatibility with foobar2000 is the cause of mouse inoperability ... more than Firefox. :?:

I dont know - there are not many changes in beta 12, certainly none that should impact performance - foobar or not!

Here is 2.18 Beta 13 to fix the bug that Suke found in 2.18 Beta 12.

If you have check for beta versions enabled, you should get notified of a new version and prompted to update in the next day or so. This is the most efficient method (bandwidth wise) as the updates are only a fraction of the size of the full install. Otherwise, you can get the full installation beta HERE. Note that this link will always get you the latest beta version!

Changes since v2.18 Beta 12:
  • #579 - Fix an issue which inverted the 4th and 5th button causing them to get sent on layer change and apparently stick down.
  • #577 - Fix two issue in language changes made in 2.18 Beta 12.
There is one language template change in 2.18 beta 13 to fix one little issue in the text added in beta 12 (second {RMBD} should be {RMBDU})
NOTE: For Suke and AndyK (who have already provided beta 12 language packs), I have updated them and you should not need to do anything.

Any problems, PM me a copy of the debug log file (or post a snippet in a code block here).

Thanks,
Phil

Thank you for the quick fixing. :)
I tried beta 13 for several hours, but as of now the issues reported as above have not occurred !
I sent PM w/ my settings file to you.

Hi,

please remove one "{RMBD}" - it is present twice in the German translation

line 439
"\t\t\te.g. {LMBD}, {LMBU}, {RMBD}, {RMBU}, {MB4D}, {MB5U} etc." => "\t\t\tz.B. {LMBD}, {LMBU}, {RMBD}, {RMBU}, {RMBD}, {MB4D}, {MB5U} usw."

  • #586 - Fixed issue with {HOLD} and {HOLDMS} with just a modifier tag ({CTRL}{ALT}etc.)
  • #583 - Added Slow down cursor (while pressed) and Slow down cursor (sticky) actions.
  • #581 - Added {CURSORBUSY} and {CURSORDEFAULT} simkey tags to change the cursor.
There are two new strings in the language template (for the two new button actions #583.

Any problems, PM me a copy of the debug log file (or post a snippet in a code block here).

I updated to Beta 15 and found like you assumed it affected profiles that I can't work now like I used.
I was forced to downgrade to 2.18 Beta 14: https://vps2.highrez.co.uk/downloads/XM ... Beta14.exe

For Adobe Bridge (that is images browser) it works since I guess everything there is seen as the whole (though divided into sections), but for Photoshop it doesn't when for ex. I set image to full screen, the mode I use the most. While hovering rest of area of Photoshop I press mouse button it triggers bound simulated keys, but if a cursor is over opened image (even not in full screen mode) then unless I click somewhere else, so on usual Photoshop (background) workspace incl. panels then XMBC doesn't react.

The problem with Photoshop may be caused by the fact that both any image as well as sole Photoshop are having the same window name. I know it as I've found it using Autohotkey. So for my needs I had to make some workarounds that distinquish images from the app. I don't know if that is the case, just tip for you.

I most certainly DID NOT ASSUME it would break anything and I hoped it would not as I thought I had tested it enough and that it was all working. Clearly not :(.

The main change I feared may have an impact was that previously, XMBC split EVERY window of the process up into 4 (quadrants) rather than the top level window (assuming no class/parent class is specified).

Now, if (and only if) the class name and parent class name are empty, XMBC uses the TOP LEVEL (owner) window for the process for quadrant/region detection.

So it should have no impact on your profiles if you have class names setup :(.

So there I don't really understand why photoshop would work any differently than before. Why is it always expensive software that has problems which I cant test with!?!!! :(

Can you PM me a copy of your profile so I can look at the window settings?

EDIT: Also what version of photoshop (just in case I can get hold of something to test with)?

EDIT2: Actually, its probably that its less sensitive to mouse movement now (because before any subwindow would cause it to recheck its profile and now, only when moving the mouse between quadrantes of the parent window will cause it to re-check).. So maybe the "cache" invalidator still needs to be called for ALL sub windows, but the profile check should work as above. This may take a few alpha's to iron out with you because I don't have Photoshop!

I used 'assumed' word as I refered to red text I saw in your 'update' post, that normally (at all?) you don't use. It looked like you were supposing something could not working well, so it is why I started that way.

I sent to you PM with XMBC settings.

If you'd like to test it on your own:

The Photoshop Profile is the last one, named: 'Plótno'
The key to test is 'Middle Button' (button held / F2).


It always worked well till now with every Photoshop I used.

Ps. to make it easier for you if you had chance to check it in Ps, just use any mouse button with anything that can be done by shortcut on open/new document in Photoshop to see that works while (un)hovering active document.


Only many years ago I remember XMBC had problem with seeing 'windows' in Photoshop CS2 the 'right' way, but that was fault of Ps, not XMBC, that was sorted out with some another release, surely worked from CS5 on. When I'm home I'll test Beta 15 also with Ps 2019, but I predict that will be same, as so far with Beta 14 and earlier versions there wasn't this problem in verious Ps releases I used XMBC with.

Right now at work I experience the problem with CS6. btw I didn't edit once set Ps or any other profile if I remeber well, so if last Beta 15 made changes to that specific settings it also influenced on only profile.

OK thanks for all the info.
For what its worth, Beta 15 wont have made and settings changes - its just in the way the code loos for that active window which has cause the problems - and possible the "caching" which I may have made unintentionally stronger (so it does not check as often as before).

I'll be in touch - but I probably wont get a chance to loo at it in any detail before the weekend!

Thanks,
Phil
