options:

 

1. button pressed( can be combined)

LB pressed

RB pressed

MB pressed

 

2. rotational center( exclusive, must be selected one of them)

monitor center

current mouse point

 

3. radius

1 pixel to 1080

 

4. rotational start point

0 to 360 degree

remember the last point( check, uncheck)

 

* I bought the Elephant to use in a game( delta V, indie). But it can be used many user unfriendly, mouse driven application.

* knob mode should be on

 

* Qustion: I mapped q,e key strokes with Elephant, but it is not recognized in game( it works in notepad). Why? Do you know the reason?

Really sorry but not clear idea of what are you talking, I appreciate put a detailed story of what you try to achieve and maybe a take a look to improve the software with some extra features.

Imagine a old phone dial. It should be rotated by finger. the finger is mouse point. When I move mouse cursor to the near center of the dial, surface dial can control the dial. Surface dial emit the events that rotate the phone dial.

I think you want something like extra features when combined mouse buttons are pressed.

All the other stuff please apologize.....and please with no offense,  but is vaguely explained, how works and the exact goal to be achieved.
I back to re read later, a little busy working on the upcoming update of Chameleon software.

I not said NO never ever to anyone, anyway to be realistic, I usually not code features only will be used for a single person, I hope you understand.
At this moment you are the only gamer here, so before move in to support something related more guys should be come here and start to use the dial for games in order I can really put time to code features otherwise are something like a very niche feature.
Will be nice to see a video using the software dial with games and with elephant.


Question: I mapped key strokes with Elephant, but it is not recognized in game( it works in notepad). Why? Do you know the reason?

That depend of the framework used for code the game and how handle mouse events.
Keystrokes send by elephant work with probably 99% of software but every some time something appear not works, I think the same behaviour will be repeated on other games use the same framework/engine.

I take a look in detail on weekend  in order to try understand more clearly all the other points.
I nice to see your enthusiasm, this not is a NO, and not is a YES.........will see and talk a lot before a feature be implemented, so patience  Smile

I totally understand you. I'm the only one who want to use surface dial for gaming. I borrow surface dial from a friend who think it is useless. because my favorite game - delta V - can be improved by rotary instrument. I request it because I believe some other application( or game) has a function that can be controlled by circular-mouse-dragging-input.

Also I found out the default software of surface dial is really crap. And Elephant is a more adequate software for it. Elephant is a perfect replacement for the default software if it contains volume function.

Thanks for replay. I will hit here sometimes. I was really happy to see your software.
