Open BUGS in Magnata here!
« on: 03:44 AM - 05/23/09 »
I know it is inevitable that something might have gone wrong or doesn't work in Macro Magnata.

To allow me to try and fix the issues it is important for me to know how and when the issue happens. Don't mix feature requests with bugs! Bug is something wrong while features is new stuff.

In order to optimize the communication, I suggest people use this format:

BUG Summary:
Write a small description of the problem.
Example:
- Trigger editor doesn't save correctly
Game environment:
Tell me what game and when this happens.
Example:
- I wasn't running any game, It happens on the trigger editor
Example:
- I was running Halo3 ingame
Repro steps:
Tell me what I need to do to get this to happen. I prefer a numbered list like:
Example:
  • 1. Opened the trigger editor
  • 2. Clicked this button
  • 3. Expected this but got that!

Code: [Select]

[/list]

Windows XP and calibration issues
« Reply #2 on: 02:27 PM - 06/24/09 »
BUG Summary:
Magnata is always saying that XIM needs calibration.

Game environment:
No game - on the magnata form clicking the Run button.

Note:
This doesn't repro on VIsta. If you are running on Windows XP, when you save the .magnata file in a directory other than the XIM directory, you get calibration issues.
The problem, in software terms, is that when you save the files in different folder, the "environment folder" changes and the application will try to find the XIMCalibrate.ini on that folder. Bummer!

Workaround 1:
Save all files in the XIM directory. (not recommended)

Workaround 2:
After calibration is complete copy the XIMCalibrate.ini file to the folder where you will be saving the .macro files. (recommended)

Step1: create a folder to save the generated files.
Step2: paste a copy of XIMCalibrate.ini there.

BUG Summary:
Sleep step still sleeps after releasing trigger for Hold macro. I expect the Sleep step to stop sleeping when the trigger is released.

Game environment:

Repro steps:
  • 1. Try this with a long sleep like 1000 or 2000.
