    *Drooling. Dammit. I hate buying more gadgets...well not really. Keep up the great work. I'm interested to see how this turns out so I can buy one.

    Cheers!

    Nice...

    I use my space navigator with 3DSMax and Autocad...got it recently.

    i did some search and found a joystick driver which will enable spacenavigator to work as a joystick and then you can program it...
    driver/instruction are available to download.

    After following the guide, it still wasnt working right. i couldnt go to game controlers > properties and check the axis's to make sure it was setup right. the error is in the registry key. i double clicked it to install, but it didnt set the value right. so i opened up regedit and did the following as per the guide

    add a registry entry named 3DXPPJOY.EXE with data “3dxppjoy.scg” to “My Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\Applications\” (after navigating to that directory, use Edit -> New -> String -> name it “3DXPPJOY.EXE” -> Right Click -> Modify -> Value Data: “3dxppjoy.scg”

    and now the properties display the axis movemnts as long as 3dxppjoy.exe is running

    Edit: been playing with glovepie most of the day, and im pretty certain that it doesnt see anything other than x,y,z and the button presses.. Glovepie does have a script for working with the spaceball, and it uses pitch, yaw, and roll, which is what we need to make full use of this device.. At the very least i want to be able to take control of the 'twisting' action, which i beleive is roll on a joystick. I'm going to keep playing but i think at this point glovepie only sees x y and z, and the buttons..

    edit edit: ok so it does read those in Now for the fun part of parsing the math to get useable values...

    One final bump, me thinks.. Basically, all i need now is a way to debounce movements so that we can essentially filter out errant movements.. This device is very sensitive.. I got my RR setup to use ctrl + alt (up/down/left/right arrows) for volume and previous/next track. Next step is to have glovepie output keypresses, which isnt too hard..

    I need to script in a loop or something to filter out the unavoidable up/down hat movements when you're really just pressing it to the right or left. Then its easy street from there i think.. A lil but of while loop and timer/delay trickery, and i may have this cracked tonight

    But now it is tax time

    woot! Twist the knob right to turn up the volume, left to turn it down.. You will need to have certain definitions in your exeTBL and keyTBL files..

    execTBL:


    "SN_RT","RRNEXT"
    "SN_LT","RRPREV"
    "SN_UP","VOL+"
    "SN_DN","VOL-"

    keyTBL

    6038,"SN_UP"
    6040,"SN_DN"
    6037,"SN_LT"
    6039,"SN_RT"

    and finally, the glovepie script for volume:

    Code:
    if MapRange(Joystick1.roll, -1,1, 0,1) > (var.roll + 0.10)
       key.alt= 1
       key.ctrl= 1
       key.up= 1
       key.alt= 0
       key.ctrl= 0
       key.up=0
       wait 200ms
       var.roll = MapRange(Joystick1.roll, -1,1, 0,1)
    
    elseif MapRange(Joystick1.roll, -1,1, 0,1) < (var.roll - 0.10)
       key.alt= 1
       key.ctrl= 1
       key.down= 1
       key.alt= 0
       key.ctrl= 0
       key.down=0
       wait 200ms
       var.roll = MapRange(Joystick1.roll, -1,1, 0,1)
    end if
    seems im the first to control roadrunner with it :P

    I'm going to keep workin on this tonight. i have some similar code for prev/next but it needs a bit of work on the debounce parts..

    Thanks Turbo!...

    even with this joystick driver....there are million possibilities...
    i wonder why people dont search a little....
    all i see here was lot of effort to run this device, but, the impression after reading this thread was that nobody have even tried to search on google to find some links?................or maybe "they" did, but, dont want to disclose it?....I really dont know.

    anyway....this small driver is definitly the answer which can be used just right after installing the navigator!

    i will post some more links on this device soon....
