Wireless Spacemouse Connection Trouble (Firestorm)

Recommended Posts

I'm having an issue with connecting my spacemouse to my Firestorm application. I've tried like 4 different methods and still nothing. Its driving me crazy because I've gotten it to work on 3 previous laptops before, even the one I'm currently using, but unfortunately no dice. I make a lot of videos, so having this accessible to me is very important and its sucks that I can't use it at the moment. Does anybody have any updated instructions. I've disabled the joystick and everything else I needed to do per instructions on a few different websites. I've uninstalled and reinstalled like 500 times to no avail. When I finally go inworld with the camera, its like its locked onto my avatar. It tilts smoothly , it turns smoothly (but only partially) and everything is really nice, but its like the camera is locked onto my avatar and won't give me Free Flycam range . Please Please Please help ASAP. THANK YOU!

Never heard of spacemouse. Googled it and it looks interesting. I use a Razer Orbweaver which likewise is a keypad thingy with a directional pad. It's always been a little limited with SL.

But... I would take this up with firestorm people... someone there might know.

I have a wired version.  I install the driver, and then uninstall the driver, and then it works.  It's been like this for years.

when u go into pref/move an view/movement then click on joystick config does it actually show the space navigator is connected? and is enable joystick enable and you pressed the space navigator defaults button? and the control mode is only selected to flycam?

Desiree, I don't think those apply any more.  3DConnexion changed their drivers, and they no longer work with SL.  Nalates Urriah had some long and complex posts and links on her blogs to ways to get it working again, but I never was able to.

Unfortunately. Firestorm redirected me back here.

Yes, and I tried Nalates but for some reason its like it wants to work but like the camera movement is restrained. Its really weird, I was just using it not even a month ago.

Yeah, I have that stuff selected and everything. I even did the whole script thing in the beginning, even though there's like 3 different versions. Each one just gives me this range of motion that's like 10m. Its so annoying. Here's a GIF of what I mean.

I'm guessing since the updates, it just doesn't click with secondlife or firestorm off the  bat. Theres like some complicated instructions behind it to get it working with the programs now but I can't figure out why mines is being restrained.

only thing I can think of is the viewer Debug Setting: DisableMouseWarp

from the wiki: "Disable warping of the mouse to the center of the screen during alt-zoom and mouse look. Useful with certain input devices, mouse sharing programs like Synergy, or running under Parallels."

i have never used a spacemouse but I found that disabling this setting made my wireless mouse go a whole lot better, as I also have a Wacom Intuos pen drawing tablet connected to my computer

One thing I noticed that I'm guessing may be different is the fact that instead of saying "Spacemouse Wireless" beside the joystick it says "3Dconnexion Universal Receiver."

in Firestorm then menu: Advanced \ Show Debug Settings

in Debug Settings dialog search box type: disablemousewarp

you will get this:

mousewarp.png.86320d189e105694bfa29ebbc8520728.png


set the option from FALSE to TRUE. Close the dialog and done

I just install the driver, and then uninstall it, and it works.  LoL.
