2016-07-30 Jeff Backus <>
Version 2.22
* Fixed a segfault on startup issue affecting some Linux distributions
* Fixed issues with SDL 2.0.4 on Windows.
* Updated documentation and URLs in code to note transition in
* Updated translations and added new ones.
* Added code to revert all virtual buttons to beginning of slot list
before a set switch.
* Build system updates
* Fixed a bug where invalid joystick was inserted into device list.
* Modified to hide turbo mode combobox for regular buttons
* Changed to allow blank config for auto profile entries again.
* Fixed matching by process filename in AutoProfileWatcher
2016-01-10 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.21
* Changed unplug routine slightly. The old behavior was slightly wrong anyway
but the old behavior did not work with SDL 2.0.4.
* Custom Qt builds are being used for the 64 bit Windows build and noSSE
Windows build.
* Updated Windows build to use Qt 5.5.1.
* Updated Windows build to use SDL 2.0.4. This should clear up a couple
of problems for people running Windows 10.
* Changes to some acceleration curves. Both the output values and the input
offsets were changed to make mouse movement looser.
* Removed First Run Wizard from program. In the end, that wizard was causing
more problems for other users than it was worth.
* Add arguments property for Execute slots.
* Allow a real absolute mouse to be used with uinput support. Previously,
relative mouse movement was being used to fake an absolute position for the
mouse pointer. The WiimoteGlue project provided a way to allow uinput to
send absolute mouse pointer events when using uinput.
* Fixed set changing with analog triggers.
2015-10-19 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.20.2
* Change Enhanced Precision and Easing Quad/Cubic acceleration
* Skipped straight to 2.20.2 since version 2.20 actually had 2.20.1 marked
as its version in the application
2015-10-10 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.20
* Replace usage of QElapsedTimer with QTime for mouse movement calculations.
* Start using Qt 5 with Ubuntu Vivid package.
* Change XTest pointer acceleration when starting the program.
* Allow release slot to have a 0 ms interval. This is useful for people who
use a gamepad poll rate less than 10 ms.
* Change minimize to tray code to work better with later versions of Gnome 3
and Unity.
* Transfer travel distance axis changes when switching sets.
2015-09-29 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.19.3
* Japanese translation provided by tou omiya.
* Make sure Game Controller Mapping dialog window reads raw joystick events.
This should fix problems regarding improper mapping causing controller elements
to no longer be mappable.
* Make Set Change slots activate on button release instead of button press.
* Tweaked the locking being performed in various portions of the program.
* Fixed a problem with blank info window appearing when escaping from window
capture utility dialog.
* Fixed issues with document-save-as icon staying displayed after resetting
a profile.
* Fixed "Media Next" key binding for virtual keyboard.
* Fixed various issues regarding binding slots in the Advanced Edit dialog window.
2015-09-15 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.19.2
* Add --next to allow multiple profiles to be loaded in one command call.
* Add a flag to settings file when wizard is finished. Don't depend on any
other settings being changed during an application run.
* Fixed issue with inserting Pause slots.
* Fixed issue with blank application filepath being matched for auto profile
2015-09-03 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.19.1
* Fixed SDL 1.2 build support.
* Fixed issue with SDL thread not being stopped due to connections not being
made in some situations.
* Fixed loading of a profile from a second instance.
* Fixed problem with main window not being populated after the App Settings
Wizard was finished.
* Fixed another portion of the program that assumed that a controller would be
connected at startup. Fixes excessive CPU load.
2015-08-31 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.19
* Added curve options for extra acceleration.
* Fixed bug when App Settings Wizard would pop up when not needed.
* Simplified Chinese translation updated.
2015-08-24 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.18.2
* Fixed overly active timer used to reset acceleration distances when
no events are returned from SDL in a given gamepad poll.
* Sebian translation updated by Jay Alexander Fleming.
* Changed behavior of 4 Way Cardinal mode for DPads. Diagonals are no longer
counted as a dead zone. This change is more likely temporary.
Up+Right - Up, Down+Right - Right, Down+Left - Down, Up+Left - Left
2015-08-18 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.18.1
* Fixed some threading issues when using X11.
* Fixed excessive CPU load on startup when no controller is connected.
2015-08-15 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.18
* Perform event simulation in its own thread. Timer used for mouse speed
calculations has improved as a result.
* Slow down Enhanced Precision mouse acceleration curve slightly. Changes
were mainly due to overall mouse emulation being tweaked.
* Distributing 64 bit builds for Windows again.
* Using a simulated event to click the minimize button in title bar now works
on Windows. The move to using a dedicated thread for event simulation allows
that to work now.
* Simplified Chinese translation added thanks to zzpxyx.
2015-08-02 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.17
* Changed Enhanced Precision acceleration curve. The curve has been slowed down
* Changed how initial mouse movement is performed when the gamepad poll rate
and the mouse refresh rate differ.
* Flash interface buttons after restoring the main window from the tray icon.
* Tweaked mouse movement remainder routine. Remainders now only apply when
the direction along an axis is the same.
* Raised maximum cycle reset time to 60 seconds.
* Fixed improper cycle reset interval.
2015-07-22 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.16
* Loosen initial mouse movement experienced after going outside the dead zone.
* Added option in the mouse settings section that would allow antimicro to
reset the acceleration values being used for the uinput virtual mouse pointer.
This is useful after playing older Linux games that change the acceleration
settings for all mouse pointers after a game exits. Postal 2 and Doom 3 are two
examples of games in my game library that exhibit this behavior.
* Queue all events before performing any actions. The priority of various events
has been changed as well.
* Added option to change the gamepad poll rate used by the application. By
default, the old 10 ms poll rate will be used.
* Bundle a few backup icon files. Mainly useful on SteamOS since the themes
used don't bundle a couple of essential icons that are expected to be present.
* Compiled vmulti support into Windows build. The driver is not currently
provided. The program needs to be started with the arguments --eventgen vmulti.
* Temporarily stop packaging a 64 bit version of the program for Windows.
Unfortunately, the version of Qt being used has a problem regarding timer
accuracy that is not experienced with the 32 bit version of Qt being used.
At this time, working around the problem is not feasible so there will be no
64 bit release. Please use the 32 bit version.
* Change shortcuts used for the .msi package.
* Bundle Qt translation files for Windows version.
2015-06-27 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.15
* Changed routine for extra acceleration for mouse movement. The new version
is a bit faster and more responsive than the previous version.
* Added release circle setting for spring mouse mode. This can be used to have
the mouse return to a region around a character based on the last detected
direction of an analog stick.
* Added a sub-menu to the virtual keyboard. Some multimedia and browser keys
can now be selected.
* Added Execute slot type. A program can be set to launch when a slot is
* Added Text Entry slot type. You can now have a string of text typed
when a slot is activated. This can be useful for inputting common commands in
* Added proper interpolation to determine the start of diagonal regions of
analog sticks. This is used for mouse movement in order to determine the proper
starting dead zone point.
* Changed Enhanced Precision mouse acceleration curve. The new changes in the
curve should be much looser than before.
* Fixed --unload command line option. Enforce reloading of config file
when finished.
* Fixed issue with spring mouse mode where the mouse would temporarily return
to center when switching stick directions quickly.
* Fixed some bindings in the virtual keyboard when using SendInput for the
event generator.
* Fixed issue with widgets used to update stick and dpad delay. The spinbox can
now be used to edit the delay.
* Reduced multiple instances of some objects. Reduces memory usage slightly.
2015-05-01 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.14
* Refactored extra axis acceleration. This revision uses individual gamepad
polls again. Other changes in the code have made switching back feasible. With
minor adjustments, the mouse will be looser but very controllable.
* Added longer duration for extra axis acceleration. This allows extra
acceleration to be performed over a period of time as opposed to just one
gamepad poll.
* Changed key repeat routine when using SendInput on Windows. Key releases
restart the last active key repeat delay.
* Now using Qt64-NG for the 64 bit Windows builds.
* Initial experiments with vmulti support in the Windows version. Using that
driver would allow antimicro to use a virtual keyboard and mouse rather than
using SendInput. That would allow antimicro to work around UAC problems and
anti-cheat programs. Support is not currently compiled into the Windows builds
due to not being able to properly distribute the vmulti driver.
* Do not write empty names tag in profiles if no custom button names have been
* Allow mouse history buffer size to go up to 100.
* Allow diagonal range to go up to 90 degrees.
* Remove old mouse speeds from mouse history buffer if stick has been returned
to the dead zone. History buffer will be filled with zeroes.
* Omit hotplugging dependent code when compiling against SDL 1.2.
* Fixed dpad pointer bug when certain QueuedConnection slots are executed.
2015-03-31 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.13
* Updated extra axis acceleration routine. Now, extra acceleration is
calculated after an axis has stopped moving past the assigned threshold
in one gamepad poll.
* Stick presets now change the diagonal range of a stick. This is mainly
beneficial for mouse control changes so that 65 degrees is used by default.
* Added a screen selector for Spring mouse mode in settings menu.
* Added a small language selection portion to the settings menu.
* Added a small logger. Please run antimicro with "--log-level debug" in order
to get output about button presses.
2015-03-22 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.12.1
* Implemented a small wizard that will be run when antimicro is launched
for the first time. It currently only has a page for editing some of the mouse
settings and a page for associating antimicro with .amgp files on Windows.
* Show slots that are active for a stick modifier button on the main interface.
The text for the main stick direction buttons will be prefixed with the
currently active slots of the stick modifier button.
* Corrected issue with stick and dpad events not getting activated on a set
change. Events were being queued but not executed.
2015-03-15 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.12
* Added option for extra mouse acceleration. Enabling that option will
increase the speed of the mouse based on the amount an axis has travelled in one
gamepad poll and the set multiplier. This will greatly affect how the mouse
behaves and it will make mouse movement looser. Using this feature can be
problematic if the analog stick on your controller is worn out and loose.
* Corrected issue with extra mouse sync events occurring when not needed (0,0
events). This change seems to have smoothed out mouse movement on the low end
of an axis a bit.
* Tweaked controller unplug workaround to still invoke release events for
axes and buttons. For triggers, the release value is modified from what is
provided by SDL so an unplug event will cause a release event to occur for the
2015-02-25 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.11.1
* Added workaround to allow gamepad unplugging on Windows to not
activate bindings for the triggers. This was caused by the way controller
unplugging is handled by SDL (primarily with the Windows version).
SDL sends a release value for all elements of an unplugged joystick a brief
period before sending the expected SDL_JOYDEVICEREMOVED event. The problem is
that the released value used for triggers assumes that the dead zone is half the
trigger's full range. This would cause bindings for triggers to usually activate
for a brief period before SDL would send the final SDL_JOYDEVICEREMOVED event
which would then deactivate those bindings.
* Changes for the portable Windows version. Allow relative profile paths for
use in the portable package on Windows. Associate profiles registry change
prompt skipped.
* Queue stick and dpad events. Allows for better control of 8-way sticks
and dpads.
2015-02-07 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.11
* Adjusted the Enhanced Precision, Easing Quadratic, and Easing Cubic
mouse acceleration curves. The low end of each curve has been loosened a bit
and the rest of the curves have been adjusted accordingly. Comparing the two
versions, the resulting mouse speed for a given axis point is slightly lower
in the new versions for most of the curve. The extreme low end and the extreme
high end of the curves will be slightly faster.
* Updated Qt to version 5.4.0 for the Windows builds.
* Compiled a 64 bit version for Windows thanks to the Qt-x64 project.
* Added a set changing slot.
* Added AppData for use when packaging on Linux thanks to Jeff Backus.
* Fixed bug with mouse wheel event methods for axes which resulted in negative
values being passed to the event timer.
2014-12-29 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.10.1
* Changed event handler fallback method under Linux.
* Changed interface of Assignments page in Advanced Button Dialog.
* Reset set number upon changing profiles.
* Added "About Development" tab to About Dialog.
* Fixed dynamic text resizing in Button Edit Dialog under Linux.
* Fixed launching a second instance in order to load a profile in the
first instance.
2014-12-10 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.10
* Changed allowed values for easing duration. The minimum value has been
lowered to 0.0 and the maximum value has been increased to 5.0.
* Added a stick modifier button. This button is primarily meant to be used
to assign walk/run functionality to an analog stick. Instead of having to
create distance zones and assign keyboard modifier keys to each stick button,
you can now make the assignment on the stick modifier button and it
will apply to the stick as a whole. It makes assigning walk/run functionality
to an analog stick much less cumbersome. The DreadOut demo has already shown a
use case where only the stick modifier button was needed due to the demo not
handling running when using the left stick on an Xbox 360 controller.
* Increased idle mouse timer interval to 100 ms.
* Added a load profile slot. You can now tell the program to load a different
profile upon pressing a button.
* Added gradient functionality for the high end of the Easing Quadratic and
Easing Cubic mouse acceleration curves.
* Raise process priority on Windows. Now, the antimicro process will run
with High priority. This allows internal timers to work better and be less
susceptible to the activity of other running programs. On Linux, the priority of
the main thread has been increased.
* Take multiple direction buttons into account when assigning set switching
to stick buttons.
* If uinput is enabled but not usable at runtime then XTest will be used
as a fallback option for the Linux version.
* Tweaked Gradient and Pulse turbo modes to make them a bit tighter. A lower
delay will be needed in profiles to achieve a similar control from previous
versions. On the plus side, this has been tested to work with FlatOut 2 fairly
well. It is good enough to use and actually win some races against AI opponents.
* Added analog control for mouse wheel buttons that are mapped to an axis
* Tweaked mouse movement code to improve mouse accuracy. This is mainly due
to discovering the QElapsedTimer class that is included in Qt.
* Fixed middle mouse button binding when using the uinput event handler
on Linux.
* Fixed memory leaks that were discovered by Valgrind.
2014-11-19 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.9
* Added mouse refresh rate as an option. Please be mindful of how your
system behaves if you set the refresh rate to a low value like 1 ms.
In the worst case scenario, you could end up dedicating one CPU core on
just the antimicro process. Also, on Windows, you will want to make sure
to disable the "Enhance Pointer Precision" option if you use a low value
otherwise Windows will severely slow down the mouse pointer.
* Added an application level mouse smoothing option. The older button level
smoothing option has been removed. The old option didn't do much since it only
dealt with the partial distance remainder.
* Button responsiveness has been improved. The old mouse movement code was
creating a bottleneck for button processing which would result in a slight
* Changed mouse movement code. The overall mouse movement should be smoother
* Allow the Windows setting "Enhance Pointer Precision" to be disabled while
antimicro is running. This will make sure Windows does not directly manipulate
the mouse events sent to the system. This will allow mouse control on an analog
stick to be more accurate on Windows.
* Changes to Auto Profile to allow more variables for matching. Multiple
window properties can be specified which will cause antimicro to count an
entry as a match only if all specified properties match.
* Changed how windows are grabbed in X on Linux.
* Minor fix for Gradient and Pulse turbo modes. There were times when the
timer interval controlling those modes could be negative and cause problems.
2014-11-05 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.8.1
* Fixed some buttons in virtual keyboard when program is using uinput support.
* Fixed Update Joysticks option for SDL 1.2 users.
2014-10-28 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.8
* Added delay settings for analog sticks and dpads. This is meant to
keep some games from overreacting when switching directions quickly.
A delay is especially useful for games that utilize a dash on a key double tap.
This will also be very useful while playing rougelike games. The new
delay setting allows for more responsive controls than the old alternative of
using hold zones on individual direction buttons.
* Added two new mouse acceleration curves: Easing Quadratic and
Easing Cubic. These new mouse acceleration curves are meant to mimic the
camera control that is used for gamepad support in some recent first person
shooters such as Borderlands 2. Once a stick direction has reached a threshold
(80%) then the mouse speed will gradually accelerate over a period of time
before the mouse speed reaches its peak. The duration of the easing method is
set at 0.50 seconds by default but the setting is configurable per
* Major refactor to mouse event generation. The new routine requires
fewer system resources and it is more accurate.
* Made uinput support a runtime option for Linux users. The program can
now be compiled with both XTest and uinput support and the event
generator can be specified using the --eventgen flag. It defaults
to XTest if available. The option is only available when the program
is compiled with both XTest and uinput support.
* Added right click context menus for buttons in main interface.
* Fixed issue with Game Controller Mapping dialog. Controller DPads that
are exposed as 4 buttons can now be bound to the DPad of an SDL Game
* Fixed an issue with incorrect profile names being displayed in the
profile combobox.
* Fixed issue introduced in version 2.7 regarding mouse movement calculations
for the left direction of analog sticks. A major portion of the
safe zone for that direction was being skipped.
* Changed button groups in the main interface to update immediately
when a stick or dpad mode has been changed.
* Initial removal of old joystick abstraction support in interface when using
SDL 2.
2014-10-14 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.7
* Added a UAC workaround for use in Windows. antimicro can be restarted
as Administrator in case a game is running with elevated permissions and
the events generated by antimicro are not detected by a game.
* Added more key aliases for uinput support.
* Force higher dead zones for axes in Game Controller Mapping window.
* Fixed virtual keyboard in Button Edit Dialog window for Linux users
utilizing XTest support.
* Display some minor mouse stats in Mouse Settings dialog.
* Alter Analog Stick dialog window to show some new stats. Also,
show square stick coordinates as well as adjusted circle
stick coordinates.
* Added square stick to circle stick conversion.
* Fixed issue with VK_LSHIFT and VK_RSHIFT aliases not being saved properly
on Windows.
* xinput is used for the uinput virtual pointer in order to
disable mouse acceleration for the pointer. This allows spring mode to work
as intended.
* Added some code to guess which axes of a gamepad should be considered
triggers by default while in old Joystick mode. The initial values of
axes are taken from SDL and those are used as the point of the axes
while centered. If the initial value of an axis is below -30,000 then
an axis is considered to be a trigger.
2014-09-16 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.6
* Added two new Turbo modes. Gradient mode is used to change the key press
time depending on the position of an axis (useful for racing games).
Pulse mode is used to change how many times a key press is invoked depending
on the position of an axis (scrolling in a web browser using arrow keys).
* Fixed profile resetting in a couple of places.
* A Russian translation has been provided by Dima Koshel.
* Added option to invoke Game Controller mapping window from command line.
The final mapping string will be printed to stdout. This is useful
for saving a SDL_GAMECONTROLLERCONFIG for your controller that
can be used system wide. Any SDL 2 game can then be set up to use
that mapping and it can be changed if needed.
* Profiles now use a unique .amgp file extension. Older xml profiles will
continue to be supported.
* Fixed spring mouse mode so that it uses proper axis distance values.
* Set changing has been fixed for analog sticks and virtual dpads.
* EXPERIMENTAL. uinput support has been added to the source code. Binary
Linux packages will continue to utilize XTest for event generation for the
time being. If you would like to test uinput integration then you will have
to compile the program using -DWITH_UINPUT=ON and -DWITH_XTEST=OFF
when running cmake. Playing Warsow 1.51 in Linux using antimicro requires
using uinput integration. Also, keys can now be pressed in a tty.
2014-08-01 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.5
* Fixed packaging the Windows version so the program will work on
Windows XP again.
* Delay rendering of flashing buttons. This helps improve controller
responsiveness when the main window is not hidden.
* Reduced the size of written profiles. Only changed values are
now stored in profiles.
* Updated German translation provided by phob and Leonard Koenig.
* Allow a profile to be listed as the final argument on the command line.
Ex: antimicro ~/antimicro-profiles/profile.xml.
* Added diagonal distance support for distance slots for Standard
mode on Sticks and DPads. This was necessary for some modifier assignments
to work properly. The best example is for assigning walking in Half-Life 1.
* Allow generated events to be sent to a different X display than the
application is running on. This change was mainly done to better work
with SteamOS. AntiMicro can be run via ssh with X tunneling in order
to configure profiles on one system but the program will send events to the
X display that is running Steam and games.
* Auto Profile support has improved for SteamOS. Application grabbing can
now be done while in the SteamOS BPM Session. Steam BPM can be grabbed as
* Only show active or soon to be active slots for buttons in the main
window. The text displayed on the buttons will update when a
new zone has been reached due to using slots such as distance or hold.
* Allow no profile to be assigned to an application for an Auto Profile entry.
This means that the program will choose an empty profile when the application
for that Auto Profile entry has focus. This will help with disabling AntiMicro
for applications that already have controller support.
* Controller Mapping dialog now stops processing events until all elements
have been released on a controller.
2014-05-30 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.4
* Relative spring mode added.
* Key repeating changes in Windows.
* Updated Windows version to use Qt 5.3.0.
* Set copying added.
* Corrected application checks used for Auto Profile support
in Windows.
2014-05-23 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.3.3
* Tweaked Enhanced Precision mouse acceleration curve.
* Tweaked "all" option in Auto Profile. No profile assigned to "all" now
implies that a blank configuration should be loaded.
* Manpage created by Jeff Backus.
* Migrated to the CMake build system.
2014-05-15 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.3.2
* Fixed problem with old profiles not being usable in the
2014-05-13 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.3.1
* Added new Enhanced Precision mouse curve. It is now the default
mouse curve. The new mouse curve will make the cursor move slowly
towards the low end of an axis and the cursor movement will be
accelerated towards the high end of an axis.
* Added unsaved profile dialogs.
* Added key repeating behavior under Windows.
* Increased maximum turbo interval.
* Added more options to the Edit Settings dialog.
* Added profile name display editing.
* Fixed invalid pointer issue for Hold events.
2014-05-02 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.3
* Added a daemon mode.
* Added joystick profile compatibility parser for game controllers.
Old profiles are now usable when using SDL Game Controller support.
Old profiles have to be mapped against the same controller that
is connected.
* Added cycle reset support. Sequences with cycles can now get
returned to the first cycle zone in a sequence after a period of
* Changed Auto Profile support to work properly in SteamOS
while running the SteamOS Big Picture Mode session. On many
tested games (Duke Nukem 3D, SuperTux, World of Goo), the
game had to be run in windowed mode in order for Auto Profile
support to be able to detect the application. It is recommended
that you run games in windowed mode when using Auto Profile support
in the SteamOS BPM session. This is not an issue when running the Steam
desktop client in desktop mode.
* Added a delay slot type. A delay slot can be used for
key presses in a key combination. Unlike other macro slots, slots
placed before a delay slot will remain active after the specified
time has passed.
* Added option to allow the program to start on Windows startup.
* Changed dialogs for secondary set buttons to display the set
that the button is currently in.
* Changed turbo mode to give more control. Key presses are now given
more time to be active. Key presses and releases now run for a
duration of t/2 seconds.
* Altered tray menu to display a single list when only one controller
is connected. An option has been added to allow for a single
list to also be used when multiple controllers are detected.
* Fixed issue with Windows XP Auto Profile workaround.
On the plus side, now the program is confirmed to work in
Windows XP.
* Fixed issues with Auto Profile support saving and precedence.
2014-04-19 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.2
* Added example controller display to Game Controller Mapping
dialog window.
* Added Auto Profile support. Allows for profiles to be associated
with specific applications.
* Added button icons in Windows version.
* Added a press time slot type. That slot type is used
to have keys active for a specific period of time.
* Allow Pause slots to have a 0 second interval. Allows
for a forced key release.
* Windows version is now built with SDL 2.0.3.
* Fixed 8-Way D-Pad mode.
* Fixed preset options in various dialogs to account for new aliases.
* Fixed ampersand rendering in set buttons.
* Fixed spring mouse mode dimension support.
* Fixed spring mouse mode accuracy under Windows.
2014-02-28 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.1
* Added new stick and dpad modes.
* Added set names.
* Minor fixes for Windows.
* Fixed QSettings usage to reduce reads and write to config file.
2014-02-10 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.0.1
* Active keyboard keys now use a reference count. This will
be useful for keeping modifier keys held when moving a stick
from a diagonal direction to a cardinal direction. This will allow a run
to be maintained properly.
* A release delay has been added to release slot events. This is needed
for some games where a key press and release might happen too quickly
for a game, such as The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion, to catch it.
* Altered data sent to SendInput under Windows. The change should allow
games that rely exclusively on scancode data to detect keyboard
key presses now. Previously, keyboard emulation would not work
while playing The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion on Windows.
* Improved key associations under Windows. VK_OEM_* keys associations
are now generated at runtime which will allow associations
to be more layout independent.
* Changed some portions of the Windows version so that the Numpad
Enter key can be emulated.
* The recent profile list is now updated when a profile is added
or removed from the list as opposed to when the program is closed.
This allows the list to be in sync while utilizing hotplugging.
2014-01-04 Travis Nickles <>
Version 2.0
* Migrated profiles to use Qt key values as opposed to using native key code
values. Allows for better cross-platform compatibility. Current
joystick profiles will be migrated when first loaded by the program.
* Program can now be compiled against SDL 2.
* The Game Controller API provided by SDL 2 has been integrated into the
application. The API is used to abstract various gamepads to a unified
standard. Profiles made against the Game Controller API can be used with
any controller that is supported. Unsupported controllers will have to be
mapped in the program.
* A simple Game Controller mapping window has been made so people that are using
an unsupported controller can map that controller so that it can be used with
the Game Controller API. Any saved mapping string will be loaded into
SDL when AntiMicro is first launched or when you select the
"Update Joysticks" option in the main window.
* Any new saved profile will include the device type that it is
associated with in the filename. Joysticks and game controllers use slightly
different file specifications.
* Joystick hotplugging support has been added thanks to SDL 2.
* On Windows, XInput support is now available. This allows the Xbox 360
controller guide button to be usable and both gamepad triggers can be used at
the same time. Previously, only DirectInput was being used so both triggers were
being mapped to one axis so they would negate each other if used at the same
time. This problem would really affect people trying to play Call of Duty with a
360 controller when the "Hold Aim Down the Sight" option is enabled in the game.
* The list of recent profiles is now tied to a joystick GUID or joystick name
if the GUID is not available (compiled against SDL 1.2).
* Program options window has been made. For right now, it is only being used to
allow users to be able to disable Game Controller integration for specific
* Mouse events are queued before a mouse event is sent to the system. This
allows for smoother diagonal mouse movement. This really helped improve camera
control for me in Warsow.
* Key checker dialog has been made so you can check the alias values that are
being used for keyboard keys. This is mainly for debugging purposes. If you
find that a keyboard key that you use does not have a built-in alias, please
let me know so an alias can be added. Although, the key can still be used in
the program and saved to a profile. The major downside is that a profile
that uses an unsupported key will not be cross-platform compatible.

Version 1.2
* Improved while held set changing so that the program should not get stuck on
the wrong set. The changes made should behave roughly like the old while held
workaround that used turbo.
* Windows port of AntiMicro has been made.
* Tweaked code used for button presses and releases in order
to improve responsiveness.
* Allow time-dependent action slots to have an interval
as low as 0.01 seconds.
* Tweaked Release action slot. Release slots can now be placed at the
beginning of the assigned slots. This can be useful for
Tap and Hold slot configurations.
* Pause slots can now be used with Release slots.
* Profiles can be removed from the recent configs list.
* Spring mouse mode preview has now been enabled.
* Mouse speed modifier action slot has been added. This can be used to modify
the mouse speed settings used with any controller element while the slot is
active. The setting will modify the mouse speed by the percentage that is
specified. The mouse speed modifier can be used to allow for the mouse speed
to be slowed down while sniping.
* Button and action names have been added. Names can be used to describe
the action that a slot sequence performs in the game.
* Mouse wheel buttons are now used as a form of mouse movement. Mouse wheel
scrolling is now possible without using turbo. The speed that the wheel is
rotated can be specified in the mouse settings dialog window.
* Added support for two extra mouse buttons.
* A new controller properties window has been made. This window shows various
bits of information provided by SDL about a controller as well as the current
values of all the controller elements.
* Added quick assign functionality for sticks and virtual dpads.
* Windows version of the program now uses LocalAppData variable to know
where to place the program's settings file.
* New translations provided by the translation team.

Version 1.1
* Added spring mouse mode. This mode is used to move the mouse cursor
from the center of the screen based on how much an axis has been moved
from the dead zone. The mouse cursor will be returned to the center
of the screen when the axis is released.
* Added mouse curve options from QJoyPad.
* Tweaked mouse movement in cursor mode to improve axis responsiveness
and to allow mouse movement to be less jittery.
* Added optional mouse smoothing for a further reduction
in jitter in exchange for slightly delayed responsiveness.
* Moved various mouse settings into a new dialog window.
Several other dialog windows have been changed to point to the
new dialog window to allow for mouse setting adjustments.
* Added an option to start the program hidden.
* Tray menu has been tweaked to allow configuration profiles to be
disabled. A blank new profile will be enabled in the program
for a controller. This is equivalent to selecting <New> in the main window

Version 1.0
* 8-way controls have been implemented. This allows keys to be mapped
to the diagonal directions of controller sticks and dpads. 8-way controls
allow rougelike games to be playable.
* Virtual Dpad support has been added. Axes and buttons can be mapped
to a virtual dpad. This is useful for mapping dpads that are detected as a
pair of axes in SDL.
* A Quick Set option has been added. Using the Quick Set option, you
can press a button on the controller and the program will bring up the edit
window for that specific button. The button can then be mapped to an
assignment from the edit window. The Quick Set option also works for axes,
controller sticks, and dpads. This is more of a convenience function than
anything but I have found it really useful since implementing it.
* Main interface button text is now updated whenever the assigned slots
are changed. This allows the buttons' text to be in sync in many situations
that was not possible before.
* Toggle and Turbo can be used together to create automated key macros for
use in MMORPGs.
You can’t perform that action at this time.
