Title: Toggleable scripted mouse (v. 0.9)
Post by: Sushi on February 08, 2011, 10:26:33 am
I figure this probably needs it's own topic.

This is a slightly modified version of the mouse script found here:
http://www.hard-light.net/wiki/index.php/Script_-_Scripted_Mouse

The main difference is that the middle mouse button, instead of recentering the mouse, toggles the "joystick-like" mode the mouse script provides on and off. You can quickly switch between "normal" mouse control and "Freelancer-like" mouse control, which can be handy at times.

The other change is that the "Boundary Limit" configuration attribute was removed, since it was basically redundant. The limit for mouse motion is now more simply defined by the sensitivity setting.

Installing this is the same as installing the normal scripted mouse (see link above). Just use the code below in the file instead of the normal mouse script.

Things it would be nice to improve:

----------------------
-- parser functions --

--- get newline and make sure its lowercase

Related script: http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,44634.0.html (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php/topic,44634.0.html)

Note that the script would only work if you have WLCoolman's Pre-commit Build, at least as far as I know.

Has anybody used this script before? Is there any significant differences between Nuke's code and Sushi's code?

my code kinda dates back to when scripting was kinda new and not quite set in its ways. im actually somewhat supprised that it still works. it also raped physics. wanderer did the second incarnation of the script which had much better features than what i had in mine. it also took advantages to new c code implemented by wanderer to give better access to input variables.  sushi's script is the third incarnation, which should be the most up to date of all of the above. i havent used it yet, since i usually fly stick. so im not quite sure how it compares to the first two.

The new feature is the in-mission toggle. It's basically the same as Wanderer's incarnation (the one on the wiki, linked in the first post) but the middle mouse button toggles the "freelancer-like-mouse" mode on and off instead of just re centering it. So (for example) you can fly with normal mouse control, then when you get into a turning fight where you would normally be dragging the mouse all over to keep turning, you could switch to joy-mouse mode and turn continuously without having to pick up and reset the mouse.

It was JR2's idea, and I thought it was a good one, so I went ahead and implemented it.

im trying to run your mouse codes... cant seem to get them running? im a coding idiot :(
tried PPjoy awhile ago, it worked but left me dizzy and nauseated since the movement isn't as smooth say as freelancer
(to my memory)
How to I make this work? lay man's please :)

1. Open notepad. Paste in the first file (highlighted in green). Save the file as "mouse-sct.tbm"
2. Do the same thing for the second file, saving it as "mouse_script.cfg"
3. Go to your Freespace2 directory. Open the "data" folder, then the "tables" folder (create it if it does not exist). Put mouse-sct.tbm inside of data/tables.
4. Open or create a Freespace2/data/config directory and put mouse_script.cfg there.
5. Run the game with any reasonably recent build (including 3.6.12).

That's it! You should be able to toggle between regular mouse control and "freelancer-like" mouse control by clicking the middle mouse button.

Thanks sushiman!
Got the controls to work... will have the new controls "reviewed" by my younger brothers and cousins that i coerced to play freespace over 8 years ago!
I'll also give it a good run and see if i can adapt to using it as well. thanks!

I'm all for the joystick improvement but I think the activation would be better with a keyboard key. I have to break the bound of the middle mouse button (button 3) and restart the launcher to make it work. 'Shields Manager' script uses '0' to enable/disable itself and it works great.

 Anyway this script needs work, its dynamic acceleration blows, the faster I move the mouse on the pad the slower the ship moves, it's backwards, but it has a future because I managed to get it close to what I want with this configuration:

Code: [Select]
Sensitivity:         362
Sensitivity Curve:   3.9
Control Mode:        1
Deadzone:            2
Mouse Invert:        0
Boundary Limit:      0
Indicator Color:     255, 255, 0, 64

but why I can't see the cursor? is that option removed? I can see the cursor in 'joystick mode' but is not what I expected, I like the concept but the functionality IMO should be the same as 'mouse mode' in the center, the approximation to a real joystick I don't think is useful at all, it requires to move the mouse like crazy. A Merge between both modes & with a reverse dynamic acceleration fix, would be IMO the perfect mouse driver, good enough to incorporate it into the next release of FS2O.

If it ever makes a release as an official part of FS2O, I think there are some who will commit mass homicide as they are afraid that the mouse's accuracy plus the joystick's ability to not have to stop turning every 2 seconds will put them at a disadvantage.

Those would the "5 guys" that can do goood with keyboard and only a little mouse. Old-school people, I used to be one of them but I grew up and I'm progress-wise oriented now.

The option to toggle via keyboard (probably just specify the key in the config) would be a nice feature. I don't have time to implement it right now though, so someone else will have to.

Can't speak to the dynamic acceleration bit, I didn't write that (it was part of the existing script).

I think the script originates with Nuke, although I think Wanderer may have worked on it too at some point.

Ok, sorry then.

I know this already works with the scripting system (I use it). What I'd like to know is if it will actually be integrated into SCP as an option as it was voted.

Currently, the only thing standing in the way of most controls-related features is the way the pilot files are set up. Even though anyone can make a new control, they'll quickly run into the problem of not being able to save any mappings to it...  meaning that players would not be able to change which key maps to the new control(s) like most of the other controls (excluding the F1 - F12 keys).

FSO version 3.7 will feature a new style of pilot file that will be future proof, which means versions 3.7 and later should be able to convert/load up any version of pilot file without hassle.

The thing is, this feature is not on our (very loosely defined, not in any way binding) list of features we would like to have in FSO. As always, the most difficult thing in this regard is to find a programmer who cares enough to implement this.

All he means is that nobody has stepped up to code it in. (It won't make 3.6.16, certainly. Maybe somebody will pick it up for later.)

I might give it a shot once 3.7 rolls out, due to reasons stated earlier.

id do it but allow that control method to be disabled by the host in multi. this should make elitest snobs happy and let everyone else use the features in sp and mp to their hearts content. i really dont care so long as ships cant outperform their table specs with any particular input device.

but yea this is a ways out. ive been waiting for some serious input upgrades for years, and likely will be waiting for years to come. 3.7 has always been the mantra.

I... don't see how this control method would pose any "threat" to the "elitest snobs." But then again I'm not an elitest nor a snob so...

Post by: Nuke on November 22, 2012, 12:42:24 am
buried under years of forum posts, i honestly dont remember half the things on it. but il give you the abridged version:

multiple sticks.
separate mouse binds from joystick binds (allow mouse+joystick configs).
alternate mouse modes (everything from mouse scripts).
reversible throttle axis (split forward/reverse axis or hold/toggle for reverse throttle button).
lateral/vertical thrust and freelook axes.
support for custom control functions (axes and buttons) to be defined so as to be used by scripted and sexped features. probibly best table defined and then accessible through hooks and sexps.

should point out that a lot of that stuff has been scripted to some degree. but configuring those scripts for personal preference is not very user friendly. hince the last idea. many have been around since the day the fs2 source had been released (and most of them aren't even exclusively mine).

Sushi, thank you so much for the script and for the instructions. This works perfectly in "BSG Diaspora" mod, but is there a way to make this work in the Babylon Project???

Anyone, please let me know how, because as it is right now, it won't work in Babylon.

You'd need a newer engine that supports scripting and works with TBP. IIRC BSG uses 3.6.9? So try using that build with TBP.

rockelino: the script should work with The Babylon Project if you grab the latest Zathras mod from this thread (http://www.hard-light.net/forums/index.php?topic=85449.0), then install the mouse script in the Zathras mod folder.

So... Is there's any simple way to map this toggle to space bar?
And even further, have 2 modes (switchable via cfg)-
1) key press toggles mouse joystick| classic mouse
2) mouse joustick by default, hold space bar to aim in classic mode

Apreciate your answers.

Hi, I can't seem to get this to work. I did exactly this as suggested:

1. Open notepad. Paste in the first file (highlighted in green). Save the file as "mouse-sct.tbm"
2. Do the same thing for the second file, saving it as "mouse_script.cfg"
3. Go to your Freespace2 directory. Open the "data" folder, then the "tables" folder (create it if it does not exist). Put mouse-sct.tbm inside of data/tables.
4. Open or create a Freespace2/data/config directory and put mouse_script.cfg there.
5. Run the game with any reasonably recent build (including 3.6.12).

I've tried with a range of builds to no avail.

Any ideas?

Thanks, me and DahBlount are looking into it now.

[Edit] It looks like FSO isn't even loading up mouse-sct.tbm. Are you sure you saved it as a .tbm and not a .txt?

Some editors, such as Microsoft's Notepad require you to change the file format, even if you put a file extension on the name.

Try using the two attached files. Place the mouse-sct.tbm in /data/tables/ and mouse_script.cfg in /data/config/

Note, to enable/disable the mouse-as-joy script in-game, you press the middle mouse button.

Wokka!  Error opening file (scripting.tbl)!
TABLES: Unable to parse 'scripting.tbl'!  Error code = 5.

It appears as though the Scripting table isn't being loaded properly, however it still attempted to load some sct.tbm files. The mouse-sct.tbm file did not appear during the parse so you should check to make sure that the files aren't saved as XXX.cfg.txt and XXX-sct.tbm.txt. I would recommend moving to a nightly build and downloading the MediaVPs 2014 as well.

Well, the name is mouse-sct.tbm, but it is a text file, I don't think I can save as any other type in notepad? Image attached.

Sorry if I'm being stupid. I'll try a nightly build.
