Mouse 4 and 5

Post by Wisse »

Hey

Ever since I started playing I used Mouse4 and Mouse5 (thumb buttons) on my Logitech MX510 for buildspacing. Buttons were bound by default, no interaction from my side.
That behavior somehow got changed in last 6 months (dunno when rly since I didn't play) with one of the new Spring revisions. I guess someone tempered with mouse code and just left out that function.

Simply binding those buttons in uikeys doesn't work and I hate using keyboard for the task (brackets are on lvl2 since it's Slovenian keyboard).

I guess not many ppl use mouse with 2 thumb buttons, but would it be too much to ask if someone could look into that? Those buttons are pretty standard, since they work in most Windows applications by default (mostly forward/back).
Best possible solution would be to make buttons bindable via uikeys so guys with one thumb button (many mice have one) can assign something to it.

Well I use a Logitech MX 518 and it has some nice software that comes with it to bind keys to any button on it. So if you have software with your model, just bind a mex combo to your UI keys and then also bind that combo to your mouse.

I brought this up with a particular dev and got a face full of bleating about it. There is some widget somewhere which you have to edit to add your mouse buttons back in because the default hardcoded bindings were removed for some reason that was never explained.

There's a widget? Well I'll take anything if devs aren't rdy to address this.

I don't wanna lose button's default function tho. I have few bound to imitate keystrokes, but they didn't have any useful function before unlike back/forward on thumb buttons.
Also my mouse doesn't support profiles like some probably do.

OK, I've somehow managed to modify your widget to change buildspacing, BUT there's a problem.
Behavior still isn't the same, because it won't read buttons and change spacing while I hold mouse1 (dragging line of buildings).

I'm not good enough in lua (actually I don't know anything about it) to bypass this problem, so help would be appreciated.

Plan is to replicate old default behavior, when I was able to change spacing on the fly, while drawing line of buildings.

Thx

No idea how this is gonna help -.-

Last two commented commands are from testings, when I tried to see if I can simply bind those buttons.

if you're running windows, simple autohotkey script can do it:

Code: Select all

XButton1::
IfWinActive, Spring
{
    SendInput, [
}
return

XButton2::
IfWinActive, Spring
{
    SendInput, ]
}
return

I'm sry, but most of you speak some language I don't quite understand. Would you be so kind and elaborate on "autohotkey script". I have no idea where to stick that.

use the googles

http://www.autohotkey.com/

install, save the code I posted as something.ahk, then double click it

I can't verify whether it works, since I only have three mouse buttons.

So I'm not the only one surprised by this...
If not too much of a hassle I also would like to reinclude the binding to those mouse buttons in terms of a native Spring solution. I'll try that autohotkey thing though...

So I tried it with Autohotkey. It works by principle but Spring doesn't seem to get it. Nothing happens about the spacing but when opening the chat I can place some [ and ] there by clicking...

Did anyone find a solution for this? Doing the spacing via keyboard commands is just wrong for me...

My guess is that autohotkey is sending the character as keyboard input instead of sending the keypress (which would be what spring is looking for...) likely just need to look into auto-hotkey a little deeper (maybe try surrounding them in {} or using a different sendmode?)

Third party software is not a solution.
