EitherMouse - Multiple mice, individual settings...
Thanks for the feedback
A workaround seems to work if you delay startup of EitherMouse.
Hey guys, i'll try to figure out a solution for this, i'm not sure why some pcs always assign the same id each boot and some dont... I think i'll have to identify the mice a different way (internally) or at least ask you to re-pick the lefty if it cant save it
Thanks for the feedback
I also found the proper winAPI method to swap buttons for real (without hotkeys) so i'll try to work out a new version
Anyone interested in the cursor arrow mirroring along with "lefty" mouse?
added flipped cursor for lefty mouse...
added "-delay seconds" command line parameter
added startup shortcut "delayed startup" option
and a little code cleanup... more to come and optimization of everything, including optional WinApi SwapMouseButtons method instead of current hotkey method...
please give it a try, let me know what you think, any feedback appreciated (and thanks to everyone who has)
command line (-source) or menu option to extract source, including the AHK.bin file for Compile() (has the icons, etc)
feedback appreciated, next version will include WinAPI SwapMouseButtons option instead of hotkeys...
also i'll add the ability to use your own cursors, for now you can replace the files in \Cursors\
I havent worked on this in a while, and i've learned some stuff since then so when i make the time ill work on a nice clean interface/code version (v1.0 maybe??) because lots still need improving... eventually
I love feedback, keeps me motivated to work on projects like this (i'm not a lefty but originally wrote this for the shop's office manager's computer, so i and others could use it without mucking with settings and leaving her to do the same)
Successful? if so i can make it default or try to find out what is happening out of order to hopefully not need it
More lefty cursors feedback? worth incorporating?
cleaned up version soon, anyone have an opinion on an installer vs. the way it self installs now?
Then flip the buttons back. It is not necessary with EitherMouse.
Hi there, great work with the flipping cursor, however , i have the mouse buttons flipped to left handed users (in the windows settings), and now my left hand has a right mouse cursor and etc. :shock:
Thanks for the feedback, ill fix it this evening
Also some more improvements to come soon, i learned a lot about raw input recently and will clean up this app and solve all the issues i know of... Also figured out a solution for keyboards, which i attempted years ago (with eitherKbd in this thread) unsuccessfully, i finally figured out a solution over the last couple weeks which is pretty cool
fixed issue when windows is set to swapped to begin with, but a reload is necessary after first assignment... more code cleanup should fix the fix
menu cleaned up a little, next version should have a proper settings gui
now using "System Method" by default, instead of hotkey overrides of left and right buttons! finally threw that in, works flawlessly
this should relieve any issues anyone may have had interacting with other programs/games/mouse gestures/etc... you can select the old hotkey method if it worked better
settings should save better, including cursor settings, but again i'll add a gui so i didn't perfect the menu settings
feedback greatly appreciated (except on the website, clearly its not really started yet)
