Mouse Controller
Authors: Blizzard
Version: 2.3
Type: Custom Input System
Key Term: Misc System



Introduction

This script can work as a stand-alone for window option selections. To be able to use the mouse buttons, you need a custom Input module. The supported systems are "Custom Game Controls" from Tons of Add-ons, Blizz-ABS Custom Controls and RMX-OS Custom Controls. This script will automatically detect and apply the custom input modules' configuration which is optional.

Compatibility

90% compatible with SDK v1.x. 80% compatible with SDK v2.x. May cause incompatibility issues with other custom input Systems. Works with "Custom Game Controls" from Tons of Add-ons and Blizz-ABS's custom controls.
This script is not meant to be used as a standalone but rather in combination with special menus that are properly adapted to support a mouse controller system.

You suck as a scripter and you should feel bad.
Nah, it's actually a pretty nifty script. Level Up.. your sister.

Edit: I'm actually giggling thinking about when you copy and paste this and get the chance to read this. Oh man you'll be so angry I'll probably be banned again. TEEHEE!

Calintz

Wasn't this system requested and longed for by many many many people!?
Good job Blizzard. You know, you're a train that never stops rolling, aren't you??

Blizzard

The most important part is that it's compatible with all my custom Input modules. xD

@Rose: Unlike all the other mouse scripts out there, this one was coded cleanly and most probably won't mess up other scripts.

How does he come up with these insane scripts XD I think I can use this in an awesome mini-game as well.

My question to you Blizzard.
Was it arduous to make it 100% compatible with your other input modules??

Like, did you have to go through any other scripts to ensure compatibility, or did you write the script to be compatible from the beginning??

Blizzard

The latter. I intended this to be used in RMX-OS (and Blizz-ABS) which has a copy of my custom Input module included. I will make a special plugin later that allows the player to use the mouse in Blizz-ABS for attacks, etc.

Very nice ...
It honestly seems that you have no real limitations.

Your only limits are the limits of the engines you use.
You're the best. There's no doubt in my mind.

However, the description says windows selections.
Can the mouse be used over the gameplay map??

Blizzard

If you mean point-click-walk, no. This script is more of a tool to develop something else using it than an actually useful standalone script, but it can be used separately.

Calintz

What about point (determines the tile the cursor is in) and upon click, run event??
I mean, I know it doesn't contain this feature, but is this feature feasible??

Blizzard

Of course it is. A plugin like that would be less than 20 lines long (including aliasing, class/method definition and compatiblity check).

Neat ...
I've got nothing more to say.

I'm sure if game_guy gets his eyes on this topic ... he'll make that plugin. Even Aqua for that matter.
This could make for many interesting new things.

G_G

suggestion, can you make your regular cursor visible on/off? The reason is I tried the demo and my cursor was covering the sprite.

Blizzard

I don't really see the point. It's a mouse cursor, it's above all, always.

No like the sprite that was in the game, the yellow cursor was displaying beneath my cursor. Shouldnt it display above instead?

You don't see Windows' cursor when you're in fullscreen. How else would you see the mouse cursor if it wasn't a game-internal sprite? Not counting very, very bad hacking and a couple of very nasty Win32API calls.

I would make plug-ins for this & Blizz-ABS... but...
NO TIME ;_____;

Maybe someday... :x

Sorry for necropost, but this doesn't seem to work during name entry, but it works everywhere else. No errors, it just ignores this script during it.
