Question About Macro Software

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I know there are game pads like the Logitech G13 that have keys that can be reprogrammed to any combination of key commands imaginable. MY question though is whether the same software these types of peripherals utilize also exists that enables every single key on a regular keyboard to be reprogrammed? I also realize there are keyboards that have specific keys that can be reprogrammed to other key combinations, but I don't understand what is different about these keys and the regular keys on a keyboard? The reason I ask is because I play a lot of MMOs where switching between gear quickly offers a significant advantage and I'd rather not shell out $75 and have to completely relearn how I do things just to gain this advantage. Thank you in advance.

Do you know if AutoHotkey is capable of inserting delays into the macros? For instance, when I type Control + F on my keyboard I would like it to actually type a single key on the keyboard (.2s delay) Control + F (.2s delay) another single key.

Pretty sure you can...

Sleep, "delay in ms"

ie:
Sleep, 3000 \\ 3 second delay


However, the best tool I've used for redirecting keys and writing macros (and maybe its just because im used to it) is HotKeyNet

You can assign multiple windows different window names and then build profiles for keyboard keys that can send key commands/macros to each window. Works both w/ live windows and depending on the application background windows as well. I used to use it to multibox daoc.
