USB mouse/keyboard question

Postby Mussels » Tue Jul 14, 2009 8:45 am

Easy enough question: How do you choose which mouse goes with which keyboard?

Its giving me "mouse and keyboard x" (being 1, 2 and 3) but unfortunately, it seems to have no way to select which one goes with which - how does one do that?

i have a corded mouse + keyboard, and a spare cordless mouse and keyboard - what do i do if the cordless mouse gets paired with the corded keyboard?

double posting due to solution found.

This was in the regular trine discussion area, so i hadnt looked.

In (Steam/Steamapps/common/)Trine/Config/Options.txt, there is this:

multiple_input_devices_enabled = 0
player1_mouse_ID = 1
player2_mouse_ID = 0
player3_mouse_ID = 0
player4_mouse_ID = 0

If you add "playerX_keyboard_ID = X" for each player with the keyboard matching each mouse, it can work. The only difficulty is figuring out what the game things is keyboard 1, mouse 1, etc. With multiple devices mine ended up like:

multiple_input_devices_enabled = 1
player1_mouse_ID = 2
player2_mouse_ID = 1
player3_mouse_ID = 3
player4_mouse_ID = 0
player1_keyboard_ID = 2
player2_keyboard_ID = 1
player3_keyboard_ID = 3
player4_keyboard_ID = 0

It's the exact same coding as Shadowgrounds: Survivor (it even lists a fourth player), so most likely it is having the same problem.



Something to control this in the games loader or options menu would be very, very appreciated.
