hopefully its trivial and I will incorporate whats needed for you and other users that may already use chocolatey, but honestly I personally don't think this distribution/update model is value-add. Most administrators would just use a couple lines in powershell to download and install with command line parameters I would think.

I've tried searching this thread a bit and saw you were possibly adding the ability to lock each cursor to a specific monitor. Is this still going to be added? A program called Pluralinput does this but sadly doesn't work with my mice.

mattdoofus: it was never implemented as a feature, only as a plugin... I will see if I can dig it out, but the usefulness is limited by the inability to use both mice simultaneously without interference

zaekaleem: thanks... for over 10 years since releasing EitherMouse, I can't believe its not built in

I added two simple things last night that will allow for many of the requests for features and other things to be added by the end user...
- custom mouse button remapping (for peter723pan, peterpanExample.ahk)
I also want to do a more complex swap: swap left and right buttons, THEN left and middle buttons.
Where can I find this peterpanExample.ahk?
I cant open the /plugins directory on the eithermouse website

I haven't really tested the state of the plugin system in quite some time, but I put them back up for you to experiment with:
https://www.eithermouse.com/Plugins/

Here is the PeterPanExample:

Code: Select all

#NoEnv
#SingleInstance, Force
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%

 OnMessage(WM_EitherMouse:=DllCall("RegisterWindowMessage",Str,"EitherMouse"),"WM_EitherMouse")
 DetectHiddenWindows, On
 SendMessage,WM_EitherMouse,WM_EitherMouse,1,,ahk_exe EitherMouse.exe,,,,5000
 LastActiveMouse := ActiveMouse := ErrorLevel
 GoSub, Hotkeys

Return

WM_EitherMouse(wParam,lParam) {
 global ActiveMouse, LastActiveMouse
 LastActiveMouse := ActiveMouse
 ActiveMouse := lParam
 If (LastActiveMouse <> ActiveMouse)
  SetTimer, Hotkeys, -50
}

Hotkeys:
 If ActiveMouse = 2
  Suspend, Off
 Else
  Suspend, On
Return

XButton1::RButton
XButton2::LButton
LButton::Send {XButton2}
RButton::Send {XButton1}

Esc::ExitApp

Hi, I've just discovered your script, and it's something I've needed for a long time. I'd love to get it working. My need is to be able to have a regular mouse on the right side of my keyboard and a trackball on the left side, and have the cursor speeds set differently for them, because their native sensitivity is different. If mouse settings are good for the left hand trackball the right hand mouse is way too fast.

When I run EitherMouse, I can pop up the configuration window, but it doesn't seem to have any way to know that there are two mice. When I first run it and it asks me to move the primary mouse, I move the right hand mouse around then click on OK. When I click on the icon in the task bar the "Settings of" box is empty. I can type in a name there, but when I change the settings and type in a different name, the settings apply to both mice and I don't see a way to switch to the other mouse settings.

I've tried beta 0.84 but that behaved the same way.

Can you provide any guidance? I'd LOVE to get this working and would gladly make a donation if I can.

Thanks!

Try toggling "ignore zero device" in the advanced settings menu... If so your devices' driver software package might be interfering and blocking the device ID from being detectable by EitherMouse, the workaround setting might help but if both devices are like that it might still not really work the way you want without uninstalling some of the mouse drivers/software
