    I built a small rotary/joystick controller out of an ALPS device, and a device that turns it's digital input into HID signals, then wrote a plug-in for Girder that turns that into useful stuff.

    Maybe a bit more effort than most are willing to expend, but if this is an HID device, it'll convince me to buy one, as it looks much prettier than my solution. :-)
    Looks like it is a standard HID device.

    So, this should mean that anybody that's even remotely handy with Girder should be able to bang away at this device and make it work.

    I think I'll order one up pretty soon. Perhaps I'll download the SDK and consider building a driver, or at least releasing my Girder work with it.

    Well I have the last ver. of Girder that was free. So, this will most likely work for me.

    I have the device. I'll plugin it in and see what it comes up as in the device manager. The last time I looked, it wasn't an HID device, but I'll double check that shortly...

    Girder 4 can see the SpaceNavigator in the HID plugins, but it can't detect any button presses etc. I'm not that handy with Girder, last I used it was version 2!

    Any ideas anyone?

    me too! like I said, i could see it as an HID device, but girder does not response to any buttons/movements. I've tried this with both the 3dxware driver started and not. no luck either way.

    anyone got any ideas?

    Hmmmn.. I just loaded girder up on my machine again, and tested the device I'd built, and it's not behaving. I'm not getting an HID events either.

    The only difference that I'm aware of, is that I'm using an unlicensed version of Girder (the trial), though when I was building my device, and testing, I had a licensed version.

    I'll try to get the license key from home at lunch, and see if registering makes any difference.

    I guess in a way that's good news, to know that once it worked, and now you're seeing a similar problem.

    If all the easy avenues, I will be writing a driver for this myself (behind a reasonably sized que of other development!)
