I changed the FakeCourser back to the noscreen PPC one for now. I thought it would be safer untill i confirm my modded one doesnt have memory leaks.
Here's some notes..
When you run FakeCursor, it virtually holds down the WIN + LSHIFT key and this makes all your other buttons stop working! (This is one thing i'm hex editiing, but its a bit tricky without a coredll.dll to see the imports on ida). So to get back to normal you need to shut down FakeCursor. This isn't as bad as it sounds...
Curently, the home key or running FakeCursor again will shut it down.
So i decided the best way to make this work is to assign FakeCursor to a hardware key.
Press key - mouse appears, use the mouse,
press key - mouse dissapears, use your phone like normal
For me the best key was the voice note one because i never use this function (hold down the COM manager key - top left side key). Unfortunately this isn't useable outside the homescreen, as its not a global hardware hotkey.
So instead - for now i've mapped it to the COM Manager key, and mapped the voice note one to the COM Manager. To be clear:
Tap side key - COM MANAGER
Hold Side key (home screen only) - voice notes
Tap side key - mouse on/mouse off
Hold Side key (home screen only) - COM MANAGER
I think this is a good enough compramise for now.
How to install/use it?
- Remap COM button to FakeCursor:
Place FakeCursor.exe and Short_POC.lnk into \windows
(Overwrite your old Short_POC.lnk, i've incuded the original in the zip just in case).
- Remap Voice Notes to COM MANAGER:
Rename 1 to 1old
make a new string.
Now tap side button to make mouse appear. Use dpad and action button to click. Tap side button to make mouse dissapear
- Remap COM Button to COM MANAGER
Rename 'Original Short_POC.lnk' to 'Short_POC.lnk' and copy to \windows
- Remap Voice notes key back to voice notes
Delete key '1'
Rename key 1old to '1'
Problems/Bugs/Things to be fixed
Right now this is an unmodified FakeCursorPPC with no settings screen.
When you exit the cursor with the side button, (or the home button) it takes you back to the homescreen. I'm working on a fix on this - hopefully directly in the FakeCursor, worst case with a wrapper.
Agreed it makes it anoying to use right now!
Right now it holds down LSHIFT and WIN keys which means you have to make the mouse dissapear before you can use any of your keys. This is real anoying when you click in a test box and can't type right away. Together with it taking u to the homescreen each time its damn irritating!
I'm working on this one too. It was originally made for CE 3, the HPC devices with keyboards. That one worked with LSHIFT + WIN + direction keys. This one has just been hard coded to simulate the LSHIFT and WIN key press.
Use the PPC version so you can have voice!. The cab won't install, you will need to extract the file with something like WinCE Cab manager. If you don't have Cab manager, then just use winzip and rename the files:
000Boing.002 -> Boing.wav
000Skype.001 -> Skype.exe
SKYPED~1.003 -> SkypeDialer.dll
Just put all 3 files into a directory on your SD card. (the 4th files isn't needed).
I've succesfully made calls with it, but the dialogs are too big and it looks kinda ugly. A resource editor could fix that nicesly if some has the time to do it for every dialog.
I'll keep you posted on how my modified version is coming.
