Mouse Standard(s) -- For the TIPI?

Recommended Posts

When you buy a mouse these days, wired or wireless, the minimum they come with is two buttons and a wheel.  Does anyone know if there is a set of standards "on the table" for the TIPI mouse to utilize all three?

Tipi uses a lowest common denominator device on linux to read the mouse... it can read the middle button ( click the wheel ) but not the scroll of the wheel...

responsive scrolling isn't likely to ever be fun on a 4A...  Let's see if we can get people to write software that makes good use of the 3 buttons before wanting more... 

 

I'd have to rewrite how the mouse is read completely to get scroll events...

Thanks Matt you answered my question.  And I agree, no point supporting more if it's not all being used yet.

A nice game of Missile Command using the mouse and two or three buttons would be cool!
