The Mouse CHOP outputs X and Y screen values for the mouse device and monitors the up/down state of the three mouse buttons.
When the Active flag is on, the Mouse X and Y positions are output through the channels named in the Position X and Y parameters and the button states are output through the channels named in the Left, Right and Middle Button parameters.
The mouse position ranges are -1 to +1 in X, and -.8 to +.8 in Y. 0, 0 is the center of the screen. The button values are 0 for Button Up and 1 for Button Down.
