I just bought a G15 keyboard because I kept hearing how much easier things are with it. Well I have been playing with the key editor and am still a bit confused (old guy here). I did a search through the forums and I see a lot of talk about getting/using the G series keyboards, but no one is really posting macros.
Since macros with a G series keyboard aren't considered exploits (they haven't given a clear answer, none were negative, and it's a hardware function anyways)...I was hoping to see what some folks have developed for their G keys.
I don't really use macros on my G15. What I do use it for is programming the G keys to do things like Alt + 1-9 and Ctrl + 1-9, so that I can activate 4-5 abilities very quickly without having to click my mouse to death.
I would like to contibute, but so far I have not seen a good document on what we can do and timing of items.
Macros I would like to set up.
High Capacity Warhead, followed by fire torpedo (right now it Alt-2 2
Fire at will followed by fire
Sticky turning, turn left and stay turning left until I say stop
Power profile shifts. Like swap to max engine and shields for escape,
throttle controls, Full Impulse to 50% impulse with single button
Target closest exposed, fire exploit power is only real one that I use.
I could use spamming fire on my target ( I wish that was a toggle)
First off, open up the profiler and go to settings, record delay during quick macro creation. Then in game hit MR, then a G button, and record the keys you want it to record. Remembering its recording how fast/slow you push those keys. Then when youre done, hit the MR button again. If you want the macro to loop like for auto fire beams, alt tab back to the profiler screen and click on the g button you recorder, go to repeat options, and then select toggle. Hope that helps if not message me in game or PM me here on forum
