Does DirectInput support multi-mouses?

Recommended Posts

directinput returns the sum of all mouses connected to the pc.
If you need the data of each mouse you need to do it with raw input.

Here is a link for more information:

Raw input only works on windows xp and higher versions.
The documentation is very bad (i had a lot of troubles with it).


hope i could helped you.

i'm kind of curious (and offtopic, too :smile:)
what kind of application/game would require the use of several mouses?

it's mice..

i can imagine tons of good uses of having multiple mice. anyone seen the multi-touchscreen video a while ago? if not, search for it on youtube, it should give some inspiration on whats doable with two, or more mice.

i'd love it for 3d editors like 3dsmax, and for dj'ing, too. in both cases, one mouse is not enough (but for djing it's not a problem, as i have finalscratch.. :D still, directly controlling two things in traktor, or ableton live would be nice.
