I get an exception starting the commander not finding the bridge.dll that is right there in the folder. Does it need to be in windows/system or something?

Is this not working with the 1013 beta firmware?


runs nicely on german XP on MacOSX Paralells 6.0 at 60fps with these Transfer cable drivers
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=7349

Only problem is, I cant quit the application as the Mac keyboard is not taken by the app. These commands I could send over parallels. Any chance one of them could be also quitting the App? Itís a pain to shoot and resatrt parallels.



Edit I thought. I can see the red dot moving along the curve but the XIm does not receive the mouse movements, some buttons yes but not the mouse movement.

Couple of issues which you're probably aware and/or don't need to fix but as a tester I feel like I should report them. ;)

* Input works but doesn't pass through the aux1-aux16 buttons on my mouse.  (Is that because those are keyboard buttons and/or a limitation of the XIMBridge or will they be working eventually?)

* ALT-ESC to exit isn't displayed anyways so if you didn't use the other XIMCommander it's not obvious how to get your mouse back.

* I think I get why I have to set my XIM config sensitivities to 1 and a ratio of primary/secondary, but isn't there a way to reverse that and just tell the editor what your config's sensitivity is set to?  The other way requires me to remake all my configs to test the curves.



Yeah. Special buttons aren't supported by DirectInput. There's not much I can do, unfortunately. You can always bind those buttons to keyboard keys, then map those keys in the XIM. You'll get the same effect that way.

Alt-Esc should be displayed inside the big Start button!

Setting your sensitivity down to 1 is the only way I can gain complete control over ballistics. The way you mentioned was how I originally implemented it, but it didn't work as well.

Running late now, but I will be back later tonight!

shouldnt that same method work if you bind joystick movement to keyboard keys, and the same keyboard keys to xim3

@roads. How do you have that mouse going to parallels? is it emulated or connected directly as a usb device? I have the same setup I'm not able to get it running to confirm as I'm going through a move. I
 do remember that sometimes a mouse wont work right unless its going to the USB pass-though. I cant remeber if you need another input device like a touchpad or another mouse to control the VM as when you connect the mouse directly to the VM OSX loses control of it.

Its usb passthrough. Will check tomorrow if there are other options. But nice to have someone in the boat. :)

That's my fault. I wanted to post the app since many people were asking for it, but I didn't have time to write a description.

The app is similar to the smart advanced settings, but with much more control. It lets you edit the way your mouse responds to different velocities. You can simulate having acceleration by editing the app's curve to resemble a parabola, or simulate boost by keeping a straight line and pushing the first point above 0.

I will work more on it this weekend and post a new version along with a better description (and a screenshot or two :) )

Is engineering considered applied mathematics? I'm working on my computer engineering degree :)

Speaking of bug reports, I may have one for xim commander. Sometimes it takes longer to open up and I catch myself pressing keyboard keys before it's actually ready. At gives me this error

I was hoping this had gone away :( . Guess I'll have to find out what's going on...

I'll try to get it fixed by next update :) Thanks!

Kodek could you help by at least optimizing or make it work with Parallels? I would provide you with any .log you need? Would be a nice woraround for Mac users. Problem is also newer Macs do not allow to install XP as bootcamp. Have one here in the office.
I can connect to the XIM and buttons are transmitted but not mouse motion it says 60.2 frames though.
