Input Remapper 1.0.01 Beta

49 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Input Remapper 1.0.01 Beta has been released!

 

For full functionality please remove Boot Camp 1.1.x keyboard drivers.

 

2006-11-30 - Version 1.0.01 Beta

* Added: Full Vista 32 bit support.

* Added: Support for fast user switching.

* Fixed: Update fan speeds and screen backlight every 15 seconds.

* Fixed: Misc bugs.

* Note: Should not be used together with another tool that uses the SMC such as MacBook Tray Tools because of conflicts with accessing the SMC at the same time.

* Note: Automatic dimming is not perfect and needs some delays and tweaks in a future version.

* Note: Do not use under 64-bit Vista for now. Might work if driver signing is disabled in boot menu.

* Note: Apple keyboard drivers should be uninstalled.

* Note: If screen brightness and keyboard backlight controls seems to not be working try holding the keys down longer.

 

Keys bound on MacBook Pro

* The default keypad like in OSX. This includes num-lock functionality

* fn+Left Click = Right Click

* fn+Backspace = Delete

* fn+Eject = PrintScreen

* fn+F1 = Decrease Brightness

* fn+F2 = Increase Brightness

* fn+F3 = Toggle Mute

* fn+F4 = Decrease Volume

* fn+F5 = Increase Volume

* fn+F6 = Toggle Num-Lock

* fn+F8 = Toggle Keyboard Backlight

* fn+F9 = Decrease Keyboard Backlight

* fn+F10 = Increase Keyboard Backlight

* fn+F11 = Media Play

* fn+F12 = Media Stop

* fn+Up = Page Up

* fn+Down = Page Down

* fn+Left = Home

* fn+Right = End

* fn+Ctrl+Alt+Backspace = Ctrl+Alt+Delete

* Eject = Eject all optical discs

* Enter = Right Click

 

Any questions, requests, or bug reports should be made in this thread. Thanks!

Everything seems to work well except the fans. I noticed the fans turning completely off, so I started monitoring the settings page to watch and indeed they are turning off. I have the minimum set at 1,000 and have tried other values, but the target goes to 0 all of time, every 10 seconds or so and the actual fan speed goes to zero all of the time as well. You can really notice it if you set the minimum fan speed higher so that can hear them starting and stopping every few seconds.

 

Please help as I have tried restoring Windows and this did not solve the issue. It scares me that my Mac Book Pro will burn up.

 

Thanks.

 

Mike

 

I do really like this product and appreciate the effeorts put into it.

This is a great tool, thank you! It has singlehandedly made my MacBook an indispensable tool for me now.

 

Is there any way to send the <Break> key? Remote desktop for example allows you to toggle full screen mode using the Control + Alt + Break; this is something I use daily.

 

I echo a few suggestions already made:

  • Dimming Lights based on inactivity timeout (like OSX)
     
  • Logic for ambient light seems inverted (brighter after threshold so a bit blinding)

A couple new suggestions:

  • More selection options for key mappings including a hibernate/sleep one (Eject = Printscreen, FN+Esc = Sleep Button...)
     
  • Hook dimming to Power Profiles (e.g. dim when unplugged, full when plugged, etc)

Any idea where one can purchase replacement keys (or maybe decals instead) to add the windows icon/right click/etc?

 

Thanks again for a great tool! :D

Is there a way to map the insert key?

 

You can easily bind eject or fn+eject to insert in the Mac Book Keyboard Wizard. If you want it anywhere else you can do that also in the Configure gui (although it's not easy).

Could you mail(inputremapper at olofsson.info) me a screenshot of the settings screen when the fan is at 0.

Mapping break should be fairly easy from Configure GUI. The other things are on my todo list.

I was able to map 'break' successfully with:

MacBook Pro | 20: Function Key | LAlt(1) + Return(2) | Mouse/Kbd Generate (Break)

 

This however did not work:

MacBook Pro | 20: Function Key | LShift(1) + F13(2) | Mouse/Kbd Generate (Break)

 

Is there a limitation for which combinations work for that control character?

 

How about sleep, I don't any power functions available as a sequence selection, any guidance?

The Function Key group works only for the function key. Create a new group with priority 30 and set "don't ignore keys" to lalt, lshift, lctrl, menu(fn), lwin, rwin, rshift. This will allow you to create bindings that take these keys into account.

 

The power button does not seem to be implemented with a scancode so it's not possible to emulate at the moment.

It is a really cool application, however, it has some problems with MBP c2D version, I think it conflicts with ATI's driver for X1600, if I installed ATI driver, when bootup, the screen was black, if I removed ATI driver with the one comes with Vista x86, everything works fine.

I tried installing the ATI drivers and it seems to work. I did however notice a change in behavior in that the lower range of the control would turn the screen blank. So does it work if you don't have Input Remapper installed? If it does, just try to turn up the brightness some (hold fn+f2).

"the lower range of the control" what is this?

I installed ATI driver after input remapper, before install the driver, everything works fine, but after installation of ATI driver, it got the screen black even I hold fn+f2 to turn up the brightness.

lower range = the settings where the backlight is not so bright.

 

I was wondering if you had eleminated Input Remapper as the cause of the problem. Uninstall Input Remapper before installing the ATI drivers and see if the problem is the same. Another problem could be if you have the automatic dimming enabled and the minimum value it's set too low. This is because of the changed behaviour where the backlight is turned off not only when at minimum but some steps above minumum as well.

Thank you Beliyaal, this is an awesome tool, it alone caused me to keep my MBP (first time Mac user after years of Dell and HP laptops).

 

I run Windows XP Pro via bootcamp and I do have some issues Which I wonder if you can shed some light on (may be they are entirely unrelated to Input Remapper, I just don’t know).

 

1. Screen flicker. This happens occasionally where the screen flickers for an instant, as if the LCD is being refreshed and it seems to coincide with Input Remapper also refreshing although the screen flicker happens may be once every 10 minutes or so and it happens regardless of the configuration setting

 

2. Keyboard back light flickers on and off occasionally

 

3. This one I find really annoying. I would be listening to music, then the sound stutters for an instant. It got better when I unchecked automatic control of screen backlight but it’s still there, although not as bad

 

4. Finally, I am having problems with Windows crashing if I put it in sleep mode where it would not resume and I’d have to turn off the machine. This worked 50% of the time prior to Beta 1.0.0.1 od I.R. but since I installed the latest beta, Windows crashes 100% of the time on resume from sleep. Do you think this is in any way related to Input Remapper?

 

Thanks so much.

Please see the reply to your other topic. It sounds like something is competing for control of the SMC. Number 4 should be a problem irrespective of input remapper as you said in your other post. The default driver for the trackpad is not optimal for many reasons. If you want a faster trackpad with the original driver do the following:

 

Control Panel->Mouse Properties->Pointer Options: Uncheck "Enhance pointer precision".

Click: Input Remapper Icon->Configure

Right click: Presets->Normal->Mouse Acceleration. Choose "Set Value".

Type: 1.65 and press "OK"

 

You should now have a pleasant speed of the trackpad without the problems of the Apple driver although you wont have the two finger click and scrolling.

Thanks yet again! I love this tool.

 

Just out of curiosity, would it be possible to add the two-finger trackpad scroll function that Mac OS has, or does anyone know of another tool that could simulate that?

 

Thanks,

hello again..

 

I have now got i working almost.. I tryed to installe abble keyboard driver again. then all of my fn + f1-f12 were working. but i found out that when i lower the brightness input remapper turns the brightness to full after like 5 seconds. I found out of this after opening input remapper settings and looked at the screen backlight bar to see if it changed. but it did not.. so I was wondering if there was a way to turn off input remappers screen backlight option??

If you uninstall the apple keyboard drivers again it will work. As evidenced by the fact that Input Remapper is able to reset the brightness to full you probably didn't hold the keys down long enough to see that they were changing. From the release notes:

* Note: If screen brightness and keyboard backlight controls seems to not be working try holding the keys down longer.

Your best bet is the Apple trackpad driver. It has it's own issues as explained above.

First off I would just like to say, this is a fantastic application. I am a Macbook convert from having nothing but PCs. Oh sorry thats right I still do have a PC called a Macbook. :D

 

So my question is does Input Remapper show the temp of the processor in any of the numbers that are displayed, if not is that something that you would consider adding. I know it is not vitally important as we can control the fans but it would be worth knowing the actual temp of the processor?

Is there any way to define which sensor is which? Does anyone have the info on which is which? I have a few guesses...like I'm pretty sure I know which is video, and which is CPU...but I'd like to know for sure.

I don't know. I guess I could try asking apple.

I installed ATI driver after input remapper, before install the driver, everything works fine, but after installation of ATI driver, it got the screen black even I hold fn+f2 to turn up the brightness.

 

 

I had the same problem after every reboot and sleep/hibernate cycles. Boy was that frustrating.

 

Check the new ATI driver (v8.31.100.3.2.1), solved the problem for me.

    • Did you tried use ACPIBatteryManager.kext for the Battery? And for brightness you can use IntelBacklight  Both created by @RehabMan 
    • I have put it into clover drivers 64uefi folder on Yosemite thru High Sierra which allows me to edit my High Sierra disk if needed in Yosemite system.   There is no functionality of apfs in other versions but it does allow other clover bootloaders and systems to recognize the HS apfs drive or open it for inspection.   If you don’t have it you can’t see your HS drive or access it in another macOS version.
    • Hi! Is it possible to get codec AD1981 running with AppleHDA on HP Compaq 8710w? It works nicely with VoodooHDA. Speakers and HP are switching automatically.  Internal and HP mic also work - no switching in SysPref but it works when mic is plugged in and internal mic works when hp mic is unplugged.   It has same weird pathmap - connected directly:  Playback: nid=5 [pin: Speaker (Analog)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001 nid=6 [pin: Headphones (Grey Left)] | + <- nid=3 [audio output] [src: pcm] bindSeq=00008001   But inputs are really weird. There are 5 nodes from input to HP mic/Internal mic nid=4 [audio input] | + <- nid=21 [audio selector] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=12 [audio mixer] [src: mix] bindSeq=00000003 | + <- nid=30 [audio selector] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 | + <- nid=8 [pin: Microphone (Grey Left)] [src: mic] bindSeq=00000001 + <- nid=31 [audio selector] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 | + <- nid=24 [pin: Microphone (Analog)] [src: monitor] bindSeq=00000002 Can pathmap like that even work with AppleHDA? What codec should I patch? I tried patches from AD1984 but no luck.    These are manually patched verbs: 00571c10 00571d01 00571e17 00571f90 00570C02 00671c20 00671d10 00671e21 00671f03 00771cf0 00771d00 00771e00 00771f40 00871c30 00871d10 00871e81 00871f03 00971cf0 00971d00 00971e00 00971f40 00a71cf0 00a71d00 00a71e00 00a71f40 01671cf0 01671d00 01671e00 01671f40 01771cf0 01771d00 01771e00 01771f40 01871c40 01871d01 01871ea0 01871f90 01971cf0 01971d00 01971e00 01971f40   Codecgraph and linux codecdump attached.

    •   Yes, 'cause APFS log is coming before clover boot screen.
    • and you suspect apfs on before clover issues
