hey carlos im still using your software and i think its great!
i havent found any more bugs since the vibrating :D
but in vista when the os asks you if you want to allow access to a program t doesnt work and i have to get off my lazy ass and use my mousepad (which is quite annoying)
any way you can fix this please?
and yould ou mack the ''back'' button function as the backspace key please?
thanks again
seasonal greetings :P

pimpdaddyo said...

sorry my last post was a little full of jargon i ment to ask if you could make the back button on the pad work as backspace maybe??? thanks again

Carolos said...

I have not tried it in vista yet...

Perhaps if you run it as administrator?

In regards to backspace,
I will work on the program soon and add a few missing features :)

Season's Greetings
-Carolos

pimpdaddyo said...

how about that for service? lol i had only just posted that i will try in compatability mode for xp sp2 and in administrator mode.
i will let you know how i get on
cheers

pimpdaddyo said...

hooray! it works!
ran in xp sp2 mode and adminitrator mode and it works ''a gud un''
vista users apply these settings to use properly...
right click on xmouse360.exe
click on properties
click compatability tab
check the box to run in compatability mode
and make sure it says...
''windows xp (service Pack 2)
and check the box at the bottom that says run this program as an adminitrator
click apply and your done!
thanks again mr carlos!
keep it up
off to play caverock :P

Carolos said...

Glad I could help :)

Hehe, enjoy, theres only one level though

Take Care

Omri said...

Man u made my week!!!
been looking for something like that for ages!!!
but theres something u need to fix...
when scrolling(rigth thumbstick)
the scroll down dont scroll few lines, its scrolls lots of it!!!
the scroll up is supper fine!
but u shoul make the scroll down scroll a little bit fewer lines(5,like the up)
and you shoul make the RT and LT buttons next/prev song in media player and the LB button to a"back" to go to previous page in browsers

but if u got some time u can make a software from another worls!!!
like a mouse driver where u can choose what each button do
but for now just fix the scroll down and add some buttons(RT LT LB)

if u upgrade the software,i guarantee that i'll do some serius advertising job for it in israel...

Carolos said...

Done :)

Advertising would be nice :)
I don't have time to advertise it, and I am sure many users would love to use it, if only they knew about it.

When I get time I will add a configuration screen for buttons etc. This is just a quick fix.

Version 0.2 (2007/12/12)
-Changed Back to Backspace
-Fixed Right Thumb Stick Scrolling
-Added Left Shoulder functionality for Previous Track and changed Right Shoulder to Next Track (Media Player)
-Made Mouse cursor move more smoothly
-Added xinput1_3.dll to zip for Vista users

Omri said...

man i loooooooooooove this!!!
thank u very much!!!
u fixed everything inportant!!!
and what about the LT and RT buttons?
can u make it back and next in explorers?
its not important, but its nice.
but if u can make the configuration screen ill wait, and u should know that ill be a big fan of u!!! xDDDDD
advertising job starts in 3.. 2.. 1..
its now cause i had a little connection probblem yesterday
im not the only one with an xbox controller and the only one who's looking for software like this....(lots of both of them in israel)

Carolos said...

Thanks,
enjoy using it.

I will try release an update next month which includes a configuration screen.

dude-what about the update???

Carolos said...

Hi haven't forgotten :)
Just a little busier than usual,
I will send out an update soon.

Omri said...

Reminder?

Anonymous said...

any news on the configuration screen?

it's pretty annoying using this as a mouse in game as certain buttons make the desktop reappear.

Carolos said...

hi,

At the moment the tools I used to make XMouse360 are not available to me and I don't have an XBox 360 controller.

I will write the update as soon as I can.

Take care
-Carolos

Very cool. This is exactly what I was looking for.
Any chance for the addition of support for the controller MSN keyboard? That would be perfect.
Oh and a notification icon would be useful.
Great work. Thank you!

Jacob said...

you know what would be an awesome feature... pressing down the left analog (the one you use to move the mouse) makes the mouse button enlarge by maybe 5x or something... so you can exactly where the mouse is while your sittin on the couch or your bed to press play on a movie or something... i actually wouldnt mind paying for a feature like that... is it possible?

Jacob said...

or a temp zoom bubble that follows the mouse when you hold it down is another option

Does this support Windows98

Carolos said...

should work in win98 but never tested

Val said...

People should read this.
