Horizontal mouse wheel doesn't work

Postby MatrixCL » Wed Mar 24, 2021 11:35 am

I have this fancy mouse (Logitech MX Master 2S) with an extra mouse wheel on the side that works for horizontal scrolling in browsers. My hope was that it could be used for strafing in GZDoom.

The wheel is recognised. When I change the action controls for strafe left and turn the wheel to the left, it shows "MWheelRight". (Yes, left and right reversed, but that would be more intuitive for me, if it would work.) However, in the game, the player does not strafe when I use that wheel.

You cannot use mouse wheels for actions that require holding a key down. They do not send the events needed for that.

Maybe you could do something like this (copy and paste into GZDoom console):
Code: Select allExpand view
bind MWheelLeft "+moveright; wait 3; -moveright"

Likewise for the other direction:
Code: Select allExpand view
bind MWheelRight "+moveleft; wait 3; -moveleft"
