Reader Aaron Stacey wrote to tell us about a simple new script he's developed that allows him to play WoW
more fluidly, despite having little fine dexterity control in his right hand. Since a spinal cord injury, he is only able to grasp and release his hand. Prior to developing this script, Aaron used to play only with his left hand using "an abundance of key binds and keyboard/mouse switching." He was restricted to caster classes because of the difficulty in moving and attacking at the same time.
Inspired by our Wii remote
post and our treadmill post
, Aaron came up with an ingenious idea that he hopes will help others with similar disabilities
. The key is GlovePie
, a piece of Windows freeware (donations welcome) originally written for virtual reality gloves, which allows you to play any game using any type of controller you like. GlovePie's website lists controllers like joysticks, gamepads, mice, keyboards, and Wiimotes, among a host of other hardware.
Find out how to do it yourself after the break.
