Alter existing remote
HI! I apologise if this has been posted. I was wondering if the basic input remote could be cloned and then altered?
I use the mouse part of it a lot but want to be able to change the icons at the bottom. I was hoping to change the speech icon to be F11. Would something like this be possible?
You can usually easily clone any remote, but I haven't been able to replicate the Basic remote in particular. The layout isn't determined from the local layout/remote files. There is an older version however included in the remotes folder, that allows added buttons (so you could add a small row down the bottom with F11).
To play with it & see if it suits your needs (there are buttons for left & right click instead of tapping the trackpad), you need to change a couple of things in this file:
C:\ProgramData\Unified Remote\Remotes\Bundled\Unified\Main\Basic Input MT\meta.prop -
meta.hidden: true- change true to false.
meta.id: Relmtech.Basic Input Multitouch- delete this line
Then restart your server and the remote should show up in the 'Input' category after a few seconds.
Also, unfortunately it doesnt look like it's possible to remove/modify the bottom toolbar:
Hopefully this a planned change, seems popular on forum.
I'm struggling to find the files to clone and edit in order to create a custom remote.
I'm using windows7 and 'the latest' UR Server, but can't see a remotes folder, or bundled, unified, main or basic input MT ...am i missing something obvious or are these features no longer in the 'latest' version?
additional info... I'm trying to follow this tutorial:
...but the files and folders in the tutorial don't resemble the files and folders in my folder: c:/program files (x86)/unified remote 3/
Actually i think the issue is that I'm only using the basic free version which doesn't include the custom remote feature.
