Input Devices

This tab allows you to manage the settings related to Mappings Emulation.

Starting with reWASD 5.7.1, you can change the settings of related to Emulation of mappings. All the earlier reWASD versions used Virtual Keyboard and Mouse device emulated by reWASD to execute keyboard and mouse mappings. Right now you can choose the exact physical device and emulate the mappings on its behalf.

Since reWASD 5.8 you can choose not to create Virtual Input Device for reWASD in you system. Make sure to choose appropriate devices to emulate the mappings.

Emulate Mouse mappings on behalf of list allows you to choose the physical mouse that reWASD will use to execute the mappings

Remove device from list deletes the selected mouse from current list

Note, that in order to remove the device it needs to be disconnected from the PC

If the chosen physical device is not connected setting becomes active when you choose a physical device to Emulate mouse mappings on behalf of. You have two options here:

  • Switch to the Virtual Input Device for reWASD
  • Switch to the next available physical device

To make sure the mappings will reproduce anyway, we recommend leaving the default (first) option selected.
