Firestorm/Second Life compatibility?

Post by thegreatmayfly » Tue Jun 25, 2019 10:47 am

Hey everyone. I recently got wind of the shiny 3D mouse to help with camera smoothing. I thought it would be a simple plug & play, but as I've been reading... there seems to be numerous work arounds for it to be compatible with SL/Firestorm viewers.

I've read though(though at this point it's 3 years dated): http://blog.nalates.net/2016/09/07/spac ... cond-life/

Discovered: http://spacenav.sourceforge.net/

and am still unsure if the steps in the blog will work for the updated drivers. Instead of "<Transport>KMJ</Transport>" & "<InheritsFrom>STR_[something]</InheritsFrom>", the XML file only has, "<InheritsFrom>STR_DEFAULT_KMJ</InheritsFrom>" so I'm wondering how I'm supposed to change this, if this indeed will get it working?

In lieu of using the blog's steps, do I download the alternate driver and remove the standard driver or is this primarily designed for Linux users?

Steps taken: Installed drivers, restarted, opened Firestorm, enabled Flycam and the Joystick, and checked to make sure the properties panel of the mouse recognizes Firestorm (it does).

I'm using Win7 64.
