I haven't looked into inverting the original cursor specifically, but at one point I was working on colored cursors like this:
Image

but never really finished it... Need to make colored versions of all the cursors, fine tune the gdi+ replacement for a tooltip, etc... someday I will make the cursors for each mouse fully customizable, just a matter of free time

i still have the "zero" device bug to work out, sorry if anyone is stuck and can't use EitherMouse because of this, please email me gwarble@gmail.com or try an earlier version:

I haven't read the whole thread, so if anyone mentioned it and you gave a reason for not doing it, I apollogize.
Now, on the idea, is there a way to invert the colors on the pointer without using too many system resources on that. It's to distinguish both cursors (the tooltip is a great help, but if I can get rid of it this way, that will be great!)
Thanks in advance

Made another small change to hopefully fix the remaining resume from sleep/standby issues. Please let me know if this helps or if anyone still has the problem (or any problems)

Thanks

Ok I think i finally fixed the lingering cursor when using MultiCursor mode... please let me know if you still have any issues with that.

I also fixed a bug when mice were starting up with empty settings every once in a while

And finally, one user is still reporting issues with resuming from sleep and having to go to the tray icon to force EitherMouse to set the mouse settings properly... I thought that issue was solved, is anyone else getting this issue? Win10? Sleep/standby/hibernate? Administrator?

Thanks:
EitherMouse Setup.exe v0.753

2018-7-16: v0.753 - tooltip bug fix, update bug fix
2018-7-29: second user reporting problem with lost settings when resuming from sleep, i guess this isn't fixed.

Yes, sorry there is a known problem when using MultiCursor mode leaving the extra cursor laying around... I haven't had a chance to find the problem yet, but its on my short list of things to fix.

I believe this version 0.69 is still available and does not have this problem, but some other things have been fixed so you may want to try each version.

I will try to get this solved soon, just have a lot of things distracting me from working on this at the moment.
Thanks,

Sorry I haven't been able to figure out how I introduced this problem. I also haven't had a ton of time to work on it but I will get an update out as soon as I can solve it.

Thanks for the feedback

Hi Guys, great tool! Works well. But I have a problem:
When I enable the multi cursor, say for example, I have two mouses. When I move the mouse there are always 3 cursors on the screen, 2 being the active mouse, 1 being the last position of the moving mouse before it moves. Anyone have the same problem? Also when i disable the multi cursor, there will be two still stay on the screen. 1 can be moved by both of the mouses, 1 cant be moved, and can only be removed from the screen by turning the EtherMouse software off.

@gwarble I registered to express my thanks for developing this absolutely amazing utility. I was looking to write something that switched my sensitivity on the fly since I use different peripherals with greatly varying speeds. I had tried a few scrips, but they didn't work at all, before I came upon your work. I am absolutely stunned how smoothly it runs and switches between the inputs. Amazing job!

Thank you for sharing the autohotkey script, it is much appreciated. Do you have a PayPal? I would gladly buy you a cup of coffee.

This tool is AWESOME! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: I have been searching for a tool to let me switch between two mice ever since my new PC came with Win10. I'm an ambidextrous user and recently upgraded to a straight Win10 PC which, naturally didn't have any of the Win7 tools that my previous PC with in-place upgrades used. It's been terribly frustrating to 'make do' with the limited Win10 tool for a single mouse. I'm sooooo happy :dance: to have found this -- THANK YOU so much for creating this tool! BRAVO! :bravo:

If you download the regular release right now it should be v0.74, try that...
If you still have issues, try "Run as administrator" from the advanced menu...
If you still have issues, let me know again

I'm working on a new version to fix the "Zero Device" issue, or at least allow the option to detect it or not, as this is the worst "bug" I have to address. Anything else?

Yes, this is still an issue on both of my Windows 10 machines when coming out of any of the above. I get a pop-up window about a script error: "Could not close the previous instance of this script." Sometimes I get one window on restart and sometimes two. Was this fixed in one of the betas past the 0.71 release? I may have missed it in the string of messages.

I use it to have separate settings for my laptop touchpad and my external usb mouse.
Sometimes eithermouse recognizes a movement from the touchpad, but no movement is done.. Maybe it is too sensitive?

Do you mean while moving two mice at the same time?
EitherMouse isn't designed for, or capable of, simultaneous usage of multiple mice. it is meant to apply different settings when different mouse devices are used, and multicursor mode allows a static placeholder for each mouse if desired. If this is what you're after, but still find the changes too fast, i can look into adding in a delay, it may help for when you accidently bump the unused mouse.

For some reason on my pc it switches rapily between mouse 1 and 2.
Maybe adding a delay would solve this issue?

You're welcome, and happy new year as well

In case you were unaware, the version number for this file is stored as 0.68 not 0.69, so I'm confused as to which version it is?
For that matter the latest release files on eithermouse.com are marked as 0.7.0.0 not 0.7.1.0, so that is a bit confusing as well.

Keep up the great work!


Thank you, I'm glad you find it useful. I will fix the version numbering in the next version, but unfortunately its still something I have to set manually as I haven't figured out a good AHK function to make that change to the resource of the exe automatically. someday I will, but in the meantime I will try to stay more on top of it, but everyone should use the version number from the about box to verify what version they are running as its always right, since I will inevitably forget again.


Thanks everyone for the feedback (and emails). Been busy with other things, but I will try to make an update soon addressing some of the issues.

The main issue some people are still having is the "Zero Device" problem
Does anyone still have problems with "resume from sleep/standby/hibernate/etc"?
Any other pressing issues, please report them (possibly again) now so they get prioritized

Does anyone know how I can downgrade back to version 0.69? I can't find it anywhere.

Olivier wrote:Hello, first a big thank you for your work!
I have a small issue that I'd like to raise, as I didn't have it in previous version:
I use the trackpad as right handed, and any usb connected mice as left handed.
Since last version, during the initial detection, I noticed that my trackpad is not not detected anymore as first mouse. I just noticed that only my Pointing stick (in the middle of the keyboard is). Every other usb connected mice is well recognized. As a consequence, if I want to use the trackpad as right handed, I need to slightly touch the Pointing stick so that EitherMouse detects that I moved to the keyboard, and switches the buttons to right handed. If I don't touch the Pointing stick, it doesn't detect any touch on the Track pad.
Interestingly, it was working fine on previous version 0.67 or 0.69 I believe.
So no drama for me. I still use happily your tool. I just touch the Pointing stick briefly before moving to the Trackpad.
Cheers
Olivier
