Space Mouse Enterprise...twisting the knob forces the other axis to zero

It appears that when you're pushing the knob left-right or forward-back (lateral motion), and you then twist the knob at the same time, that action mechanically forces the lateral movement axis values back to zero. Or maybe it's the driver that does it. It can be kind of confusing, because you can "...

Re: SpaceMouse Enterprise will 0 an axis if it's held steady for too long

Still not sure about how necessary the calibrate function is, however. If the SME knob tends to become biased over time with use, so that it doesn't return to zero anymore unless it's "calibrated", then I'm going to speculate that we'll need a way to force the calibration. Or else plan on some "dead...

Re: SpaceMouse Enterprise will 0 an axis if it's held steady for too long

I've discovered my problem...I'd neglected to add the parameters to the system call to HIDSetAutoCalibrate, so apparently it wasn't doing anything. I've been able to make the change and now the auto calibrate function seems to be correctly disabled for the twist axis. Apologies for my error, and for...

Uta replied, I see. Not sure yet what the issue is, however. I think he just sent the same utility that we already have.

Thanks.

Re: SpaceMouse Enterprise will 0 an axis if it's held steady for too long

So, the utility program I received works for some axis but not all, apparently. I was trying to implement the knob twist as a video playback shuttle control (so twist the knob CCW and the video plays backwards, twist CW and it plays forwards, and the speed of each is dependent upon how much you twis...

Re: Using SDL with the SpaceMouse...some keys don't do anything....and the display

I'm sure I did sign up as a developer at one time. Perhaps I need to do it again. When I've successfully added functions to the driver via SiAppCmdWriteActions(), and call SiAppCmdActivateActionSet() to activate the "context" I want for my application, there are other actions also included (so there...

Re: Using SDL with the SpaceMouse...some keys don't do anything....and the display

Yes, it does. Thank you.

Can someone email me some info or sample code with just using raw USB? I'd really like to get rid of the Windows driver, and it would make our path to Linux much more clear.

Re: Get button events

"If so, you can make a cfg for your application that passes the events directly to you w/o driver intervention." How can this be done? You can't even use the sample applications for anything, such as 3Dxview.cpp and the method CSbtestmfcView::On3DMouse() because the driver intercepts the button even...

Re: Using SDL with the SpaceMouse...some keys don't do anything....and the display

Is there some way to disable the pop-up window that shows up when you press a button for too long? I don't get a button press event when the button is pressed. I get 2 events when the button is released, one showing the button was pressed and another following it showing the button was released. If ...

Re: Using SDL with the SpaceMouse...some keys don't do anything....and the display

Sending out a stop-payment on any requests for help at this point since some poking in the dark seems to have uncovered how what I wanted to do is done. I'll see if I can get icons to display too, and then post a C/C++ example with some discussion later on under a different topic.

Thanks.

Re: Using SDL with the SpaceMouse...some keys don't do anything....and the display

Just repeating my question for the 3rd or 4th or 5th time here... I'd like set the labels shown on the LCD display to my own text, such as "Playback" or "Mark In" or "Download". I'd like to be able to change the labels depending upon which of the 12 buttons the user presses, because it would ideally...

Re: Using SDL with the SpaceMouse...some keys don't do anything....and the display

So now that I've tried a simple example with SiAppCmdAWriteActions() and SiAppCmdAcivateActionSet() I don't think either of these functions, or the Action Interface from the SDK has anything to do with changing the LCD text labels and icons that kinda sorta describe the functions of the 12 buttons u...
