Hello everyone. Sorry for neglecting Input Remapper for so long.

To get some kind of support for newer Macs i plan to remove mac specific support from Input Remapper. The only thing I will save is support for controlling the fans, and I will try to minimize the interference with Boot Camp by only accessing the SMC when changing the settings and waking from sleep to reset the fan speed.

After this is done I might add new support for a plugin system and have plugins available that implements the old Mac support. These plugins would include source code and allow other people to add specific support for new macs. This is a much larger project and I can't promise anything here.

Thank you for being patient.

Oh my, this thread just made my day! If you could create a program to control the fans, (especially on the new unibody macbook pros) I know SO many people that would be your best friend forever :pirate2: Many people would even pay a few dollars for such an app!

Hello all,
I am a new user to a Unibody Macbook Pro and have stumbled about input remapper a while ago. I was so glad to have found something to regulate fanspeed under windows. Unfortunately i had to discover that it doesn't work on recent Unibody Macbook Pro's.
It would be so great to have something for regulating the fan speed since afaik everybody has to use workarounds for getting the right fan speeds when under windows and bootcamp. I need windows for my working environment.

So i'm anxious to know when this great piece of software will be available and what i can do to support every endeavour in this direction. Any updates?

Thanks
Danny

Hello!
I'm using input remapper, cause it the best program for Windows, to use mac shortcuts in win.
And it is main reason for me to install IR!!! But build in features for control fans and display brightness are unusable for me. They are conflicting with bootcamp drivers, so contol brightness from keyboard became inpossible.
Is it possible to compile IR for keyboard remapping only, please?
sorry for english=)

Actually the most important thing I want is just the ability to switch fn and left ctrl lol....

Also being able to swap those 2 keys in Mac OS X would be nice as well.

I just got a macbookpro 13" 2 wks ago. unibody, etc..

I'm using InputRemapper, and it's great.
I remap the right-alt key to Ctrl, so that I can do Ctrl-Arrow jump the cursor over words in Word and in MSVC++, notepad, etc...

The minimum fan speed setting _works_ on my MBP13. I don't know why others are saying it doesn't.
The auto screen and KB backlight controls, only sort of work, they are really eratic and blinky, so I disable them.

For power saving reasons, so I can get more battery, and save tree, I would LOVE to have an automatic fan control mode that responds to the CPU temp. (feature request!)

Also, I would love for the auto light controls to behave nice, to save even more energy. (feature request #2)

What else I've tried:
Currently I'm using lubbos fan control program, which varies the fan speed automatically with the CPU/GPU temp. (awesome for saving power!)
But Lubbos only worked for me once, and now I can't get it to work anymore
(it always displays 90deg for the CPU/GPU temps, so I think that's the problem, though you'd think it'd keep the fans on high, but they're just off...).

SpeedFan reads Temperature, but doesn't see the fans, nd thus wont control them...


InputRemapper is good for setting an Always-On fan, but I'd like to save more energy than that.

So... Anyone got an auto fan control that works on the new MBP13?
