Hi Phil and community,

Is there any way to stop XMBC from changing the speed of my mouse, I mean completely disable it as it is conflicting with MSI software I am using for acceleration, DPI and mouse speed over the 5 available profiles.

Whenever I start using an app which has an XMBC profile it adopts the mouse speed in the settings page even with speed override disabled.

I love XMBC and have used it for many years, if this is an easy feature to implement that would be fantastic. I would also feel inclined to make a donation as apart from that the project is superb and has been for years.

XMBC should not make any changes to mouse speed unless you tell it to in the global settings or on a per profile setting. If it does, its not a missing feature, its a bug. It might be useful to turn on debug logging and then move around those 5 profiles a bit, send me the log so I can see why XMBC is changing the speed when it is disabled in the profile.

NOTE: A donation will not help - if its a bug that is clear and obvious I will do my best to fix it donation or not!

Thank you for your reply, of course now it is working beautifully but I will leave it logging just in case I run into this again. Maybe restarting the app or rebooting the PC after adjusting those settings fixed it? Not sure but for now it is resolved. :D

OK Bear in mind that the logging turns itself off when XMBC (or the computer) restarts (as it can effect performance etc.)
