This is an Advanced Setting Option.
Click on a control or button for detailed help, or review descriptions below.
The settings below are operated with a Check Box. If there is a Check Mark in the Box, then the setting is turned On - if there is no Check Mark (the Box is clear) the setting is turned Off.
Display Quick Help Popups
This setting enables the small descriptive Popup Windows that describe each control / button when you move the cursor over it and wait a few seconds. This can be extremely helpful for new users. The default is On.
Display Opening Logo Screen
This setting causes the Joystick-To-Mouse Logo & Copyright screen to display briefly when Joystick-To-Mouse is first started. The default is On.
Display Background Joystick-To-Mouse Window
This option goes back to earlier versions and previous implementations. The default is Off.
Display Exit Windows & Restart Windows Buttons as Exit Options
This adds 2 buttons to the Exit Joystick-To-Mouse verification dialog. Exit Windows allows the user to Exit (or Shut down) Windows. Restart Windows allows the user to restart Windows & reload StartUp applications & close down any current applications. The default is Off.
Cursor Options (Relative Mode Only)
These settings only apply when the Relative Mode of Operation is selected. The X axis references the left & right (horizontal) motion of the cursor, and the Y axis references the up & down (vertical) motion of the cursor.
Intelligent Cursor Positioning
If this option is On, Joystick-To-Mouse will position the mouse cursor to the default button when Dialog Boxes are opened. You may find this speeds up your tasks if you always accept the default actions.
A second feature applies if one of your Joystick buttons is set as the right button. The cursor will position itself on the menu to aid in quick opens, etc. (See Joystick-To-Mouse Notes for more details)
Cursor Wrap (Cursor wraps around when moved off-screen)
When this option is On, the cursor does not treat the edge of the screen as a boundary (i.e. stopping at the edge). The cursor instantly moves to the opposite side of the screen and continues without interruption in the same direction & speed, essentially wrapping around the screen. This setting affects both top & bottom and left & right. For individual directions, see Joystick-To-Mouse Notes.
Cursor Acceleration Enabled
When On, Cursor Acceleration is enabled and the cursor action is determined by the settings configured in Acceleration Method. When Off, no additional enhancements affect the cursor motion.
The next 2 settings may be useful for non-standard Joystick orientation (i.e. rotated left or right or 180 degrees), infrared Joysticks, dyslexic operators, or other special implementations.
Invert Horizontal Control [X Axis] (Joystick Motion vs. Cursor)
When this setting is On, the calculated speeds & cursor motion are inverted from Left to Right & Right to Left (X Axis). Right Joystick motion generates left cursor motion, and vice versa. The default is Off.
Invert Vertical Control [Y Axis] (Joystick Motion vs. Cursor)
When this setting is On, the calculated speeds & cursor motion are inverted from Up to Down & Down to Up (Y Axis). Up Joystick motion generates down cursor motion, and vice versa. The default is Off.
Prevent Diagonal Motion (X or Y motion Only - X and Y together disabled)
When this setting in On, Joystick-To-Mouse internally favors the larger value between X axis motion and Y axis motion, and only the larger value is allowed for moving the cusor. This prevents diagonal motion, and you may only move the cursor in 1 direction at a time. If both X and Y values are equal (i.e. the joystick is exactly between left/up, right/up, left/down, right/down (e.g. in a diagonal orientation)), no motion occurs. The default is Off.
