Scroll Wheel mouse (up/down keys)

Postby STNooB » Thu Feb 04, 2016 2:30 pm

Is it possible to have the scroll wheel of a USB mouse act as the up / down arrow keys on the keyboard?

It would come in handy sometimes.

How do you connect that USB mouse to your ST?

Using a CosmosEx. It's why I posted in that part of the forum :)

Ahh, I didn't notice that. I'm always using the "Active topic" view.

Yes, this shouldn't be any problem but would have to be implemented in the CosmosEx IKBD driver.

I think it would be a nice feature to have added at least. Hopefully someone will add it, since sadly, I've no clue how.

A bump on this, just in case someone can get this to work? When one has lots of files, it really would come in handy! :)

Armin Diedering made a mouse wheel driver.

On his page for mwheel he says
I'm open to everything, I MWheel made ​​compatible to XaAES.

so he might be able to help you get it to work with CosmosEX.

http://www.ardisoft.de/Produkte/MWheel/mwheel.html (German)

Just send him an email and ask. He is also on atari-home.de as "ardi" (ardisoft). Don't know if he is a member on this forum.

*EDiIT* Yep he is on this forum as "ardi" also, but last visited in 2014 so it is best to contact him via atari-forum.de where he is active or via his webpage contact.

Great and If you get it working, please let us know here on the board. I'm sure a lot of people would like the mouse wheel functionality.

I guess, we're going to have no luck there. ardi hasn't logged into the other site since 22/05/2015, and as you say, it's not been since 2014 for this site.

I've just updated to the latest firmware, and come to realise this has now been added! Thank you very much Jookie! :)
