In Topic: WP 8.1 ePub reader with scrolling

Apparently, FBReader cannot open ebooks from sdcard yet, so it's useless.


But your mentioning the infamous bloatware producer Adobe made me look whether there might be a mobile version of Foxit reader - and indeed there is!  (for WP8, Android, iOS).

It works as expected.

In Topic: Mouse axes sensitivity, forcing unwilling game ?

Okay, so the software for the G700 does this, but apparently not storable as profile (the X / Y sensitivity distinction), only globally, which is quite an annoyance but works...
Apparently the older logitech software (forgot the name) was better in that regard, but it doesn't recognize my mouse.

Logitech gaming mice come with software that let you change the DPI of the X and Y axes independently and assign different profiles per game.

I haven't searched for manufacturer-independent software that does this, but I would wager it exists.

xbox-to-mouse emulators work by creating input using functions like https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/desktop/ms646310(v=vs.85).aspx - however, doing this to create mouse input when receiving real mouse input could cause infinite recursion which would be bad. You might be able to use GetMessageExtraInfo to add a custom identifier to the simulated mouse input so that your software can ignore it, though. I haven't tried that.

Logitech, I have a G700 and just yesterday installed the never-used-before software to see whether it did suport that, I onwly saw genery DPI settings, not separate for X / Y, but maybe I didn't look properly.

As for the SendInput, I'll look into that, thanks.

Do you need/want any support for DRM protected files? 


I can't really help with suggestions, but may be worth poking around with possibly coding up your own reader if you're looking for very basic functionality. 


And I agree that CodeFox's comments were rather useless and not remotely funny. You basically described wanting some kind of a truck, and he sat there and suggested you use a hammer instead.

I don't think I need DRM support, no. IIRC none of the software I used so far supports this but reads all my files, so...
Coding my own, heh, I just had that in mind although not really much time for such things.
I'd probably be easier to switch to an Android phone and be flooded with apps, so far I like the WP8 thing better than my (little) Android experience, though, and I like HERE Drive+, which is why I have that phone.
I guess I might wind up schlepping my tablet around more before I go to more drastic or effortful measures ;-)

Doesn't require power, or a subscription fee!

 Best thing is, you can read in bright light !



Your reading comprehension seems lacking, this fails numerous of my clearly stated requirements.



Code Fox was talking about a physical book.




No shit. Hence my less than enthusiastic reply to that failed, lame ass attempt at humour. To try to be funny, he had to basically ignore almost everything I said.

Anyway, that answer doesn't get me closer to getting on my phone what I already have on my desktop and tablet devices (so my crazy thought that the existence of what I ask for may not be totally impossible... )
