Thread: TaffinMouse 0.3 easy program 4 using scroll wheel and forward/back buttons in Thief 1

    TaffinMouse 0.3 easy program 4 using scroll wheel and forward/back buttons in Thief 1

    Hello, I discovered autohotkey through this thread
    But did not like the need of installation and messy batch-filing. So I made my own

    This is a very simple program.
    It binds:
    Alt+Num Del to kill thief.exe
    mouse scroll wheel up to the Page Up Key
    mouse scroll wheel down to the Page Down Key
    Mouse Forward Button to the ] key
    Mouse Back Button to the [ key

    (mouse forward/back buttons are the ones on the side of the mouse)

    How it works:

    1.) Simply put TaffinMouse.exe in the same folder as THIEF.EXE
    2.) Run TaffinMouse.exe instead of Thief.exe
    3.) It automatically launches Thief.exe and binds the foward/back keys and scroll wheel.
    4.) When Thief.exe is closed, it will automatically close as well.


    If you'd like anything changed, or any features add, please let me know!

    NOVEMBER 08, 2009 version 0.3

    -added support for both thief.exe and thief2.exe

    - future plans:
    user can input any game.exe to be affected, user can input any keyboard buttons to bind mouse to

    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    0.3 changelog:

    + Check existence of both thief.exe and thief2.exe, error of both
    + Check existence of neither thief.exe and thief2.exe, error if none
    + Launch one that exist.

    ////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

    \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\
    0.2 changelog:

    + added alt+ num del to kill thief.exe binding
    If this is a problem for anyone, please let me know!
    + added %A_ScriptDir%\ in to run game exe
    (not a user-visible change, just cleaner code)
    + fixed issue of HOLD mode (like crouch) not working with forward/back buttons
    In 0.1 crounch hold/lean/walk didnt work if bound to the side buttons, now it's fixed.
    + decreased the number of bind key lines by using wildcard char (*) so now instead of:
    WheelDown::SendInput, {PgDn}
    Shift & WheelDown::SendInput, {PgDn}
    Alt & WheelDown::SendInput, {PgDn}
    Ctrl & WheelDown::SendInput, {PgDn}
    it's just:
    *WheelDown::SendInput, {PgDn}
    (not a user-visible change, just cleaner code)
    +edited Kerrle's high res thief icon by adding my mouse in the middle of it

    Your scrollwheel allows you to cycle through your inventory? Because mine doesn't...

    D/Ling now, and I'll report on how it works!

    I have my scroll wheel control the walking speed. Only problem is it's backwards. Push up to go slower, push down to go faster. I got used to it pretty quickly though. Now I can't stand to be without it.

    But scroll wheel doesnt work in thief1
    anyway, you can just add the PgUp and PgDn keys to the walking speed binds and Mousewheel will work just fine

    Oh, I don't know about T1... I very rarely play it. It works in T2 though... sorry for the confusion, but you never said that you were referring to T1.

    ...the thread title, Yandros?

    Is TaffinMouse made with AutoHotKey, or what is it?
    It goes right into my Thief Kit memory stick, anyway. Thanks.

    Well I'll be damn... yet another "improvement" for thief. The only thing I don't like is the prospect (haven't tried this, just read the thread) of having to load a separate EXE in place of thief.exe

    Thief.exe is going to be called anyway, it's just a compiled script, so you're going to see both program instances running in your task manager.

    yes but i'm picky. I meant, that means i'll have to change my desktop shortcut to be /taffinmouse.exe or whatever instead of /thief.exe... but i shouldn't complain i know.

    Version 0.2 is out, fixes/changes/download updates in the first post.

    I added Alt+End to kill Thief.exe in case it freezes and you can't close it through task manager. I can't imagine anyone ever binding Alt+End to anything ingame (or in dromed?) but if you are, please let me know and i'll change it!

    thanks for your support!

    and to all in the states:
    HAppy 4th July!

    The program does not work for me. I have Thief Gold, could that be the problem? My mouse is a logitech if that helps! Ah wait I just reread the first post. I do not have buttons on the side of my mouse, they are all on top. Maybe thats the problem.

    It works with Thief Gold, what mouse so you have?
    the forward/back buttons are the side buttons, usually both on the left, sometimes one on each side.

    Sensitivity/page scroll or other custom buttons are not the forward/back buttons. But I'm sure you can bind your mouse's extra buttons using
    Logitech Setpoint and LogiGamer or better yet, UberOptions

    But TaffinMouse by itself only accepts the default scroll wheel and the default forward/back keys, just like windows.

    I do not have side buttons. By your description my mouse is a 3 button including mouse wheel. The other was supposed to be a scroll button but I never use it. I even had to uninstall the drivers and let windows run it just to make it work. Maybe I will get lucky with the next version of Taffinmouse.

    you dont need to uninstall your drivers.
    is the third button CLICKING the scroll wheel? because thief1 supports the first 3 mouse buttons: left click, right click, and middle click (or scroll wheel click)

    My buttons would not work right at all with the drivers installed. Support told me to uninstall them and let windows run it. Now everything works as it should, wierd I know.

    Yes my wheel also is a button and pressing it scrolls the inventory. I wish your program could work so I can just spin the wheel instead of pressing it.
