Macros and multiple keyboards

Post by RamsiHartmann »

Hi together,

I've been using this great little helper for a while now, it works splendid - But I am failing to get a rapid fire macro to run properly (with my setup).

Ps4, Battlefield 5, windows 10 x64
GIMX 8.0, adapter from the official shop.
Mouse: Roccat Nyth
Keyboard: DeLux T9

the wiki sstates the following:
In case multiple keyboards or mice or joysticks are used, it's not possible to specify the device for which events are generated. Events are generated for the first keyboard/mouse/joystick found in the configuration.
https://gimx.fr/wiki/index.php?title=Ma ... 2Fjoystick

I added the macro from the wiki:

Code: Select all

MACRO MBUTTONDOWN BUTTON_LEFT
KEYDOWN b
DELAY 1000
KEYUP b
MBUTTONDOWN BUTTON_LEFT
 
MACRO MBUTTONUP BUTTON_LEFT
MBUTTONDOWN BUTTON_LEFT
KEYUP b
...but it does not function at all, sometimes a KEYDOWN triggers a shot, sometimes not, same with KEYUP. There's also a massive delay in the possible ROF for single clicks.

Instead, this error is being displayed:

from log

Code: Select all

Warning: macros are not available for: keyboard HID-Tastatur (3)
Warning: macros are not available for: keyboard PS/2-Standardtastatur (0)
Dump of C:\Users\censored\AppData\Roaming//gimx//macros/PS4_BattlefieldV.txt
MACRO MBUTTONDOWN BUTTON_LEFT
KEYDOWN b
DELAY 1000
KEYUP b
MBUTTONDOWN BUTTON_LEFT
 
Warning: failed to scan line:  
MACRO MBUTTONUP BUTTON_LEFT
MBUTTONDOWN BUTTON_LEFT
KEYUP bWarning: failed to process file C:\Users\censored\AppData\Roaming//gimx//macros/PS4_BattlefieldV.txt
I'm guessing it has something to do with the number of keyboards (this is probably due to the Nyth which has a bunch of extra buttons)

from log:

Code: Select all

keyboard 0 has name 'HID-Tastatur' and virtual id 0
keyboard 1 has name 'HID-Tastatur' and virtual id 1
keyboard 2 has name 'HID-Tastatur' and virtual id 2
keyboard 3 has name 'HID-Tastatur' and virtual id 3
keyboard 4 has name 'HID-Tastatur' and virtual id 4
keyboard 5 has name 'PS/2-Standardtastatur' and virtual id 0
I've tried
-changing the delay to various values
-changing the event from various keyboards, it works for none of them

Is there anything more i can try? not using this mouse/keyboard combination is unfortunately not an option for me tho.

Here's my log

I sincerely hope someone can help me

Hi

I notice in your log file it still sates you are using GIMX 7.15. If you did update to GIMX 8 please repost the log file and make sure you have updated your firmware on your adapter.

As for the macro question, in the edit config menu under advanced is the option ticked to multiple keyboards and mice ? If it is deselect it and test again.

I know on the laptop I mainly use I have no issues with my macros running and it has the built in keyboard and a K585 keyboard connected and my macros run just fine on the separate keyboard.

Also I quickly looked at the config part of the log and it does not look like you bound b to the shoot button in fps config can you confirm if you did this.
Please Remember to Post your Log file in the support section , that way its easier and faster to start identifying the issue thus helping you to sort it out so you can enjoy GIMX :D .
