I have been trying to remap my mouse wheel up and down actions to keyboard keys in a specific application. Does anyone know how?

I'm using a steelseries sensei, and the steelseries engine doesn't support it. It seems I need something more generic.

You can use a private.xml like this with KeyRemap4MacBook:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
    <autogen>__ScrollWheelToKey__ ScrollWheel::UP, KeyCode::A, ModifierFlag::COMMAND_L</autogen>

See the source for the key code values and predefined settings.
