Hidmacros don't use my keymap, issue or missconfiguration ?

Post by Mouarfff » 20 Sep 2020, 17:40

I want to use a numpad usb to make a streamlabs streamdek, with hidmacros.

I wanted to assignate keys F13 to F24 on following keys : 0, ., Enter, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, +, -, *, / to go to F13 to F24 corresponding, for more keys, i used combos shift+F13 > shift+F17
I used this syntax : {F13} and +{F13} and i used "send keyboard sequence" section to assign them (no scripts used)
My first issue is if i activate numlock, the numpad is recognized as my normal numpad keyboard, no as my keypad. Key looks recognizaed by "end" instead "1", "home" instead "7", "page up" instead "9" etc etc, but not at wall when numpad is activated.

My second issue is :
When i test them in keyboard shortcut configuration of streamlabs shortcut config panel, and force disable numlock, all looks ok.
But it doesn't work when i use shortcut out of the shortcut config panel of streamlabs osb.

At first it's look like i didn't save the config but i clic on "save configuration" button.
I tried to launch hidmacros in admin mod and stay in admin mod, but it's the same. (first start i had a bug and i had to launch hidmacros in admin mod).
In some cases, after restart and launch HIDmacros, the section "send keyboard sequence" i configured are not selected, i need to restart to select them for each keys.

I use latest Streamlabs OBS and latest Windows 10


thx

I post your response here, if it can help someone else :

Hi

I'm afraid I can't help you much.

ad 1) this is how it works, Hidmacros (Windows) receive different key when numlock is on and off
ad 2) I don't know Streamlabs software and its shortcuts configuration, but some software read keyboard in a way that hidmacros can't hack. If you have correct behavior e.g. in notepad and wrong in software then it won't work with hidmacros.

I will try this and come back

I respond to myself, i found a solution here :

Need to add a delay to the shortcut, don't use simple hotkey shortcut but need to script it...

I hope it can help because it's hard to find good things about that.
