Button Combinations
« on: 09:49 PM - 12/29/19 »
I've seen someone mention this several months ago, but nothing was ever made of it, does Xim Apex support button combinations as of yet?

Being able to add button combinations, not just buttons.

Some games use button combos for different actions, either as a "push together" action, or a "press and hold one of the buttons and push another one", so to speak.
E.g. in Neverwinter: LB + A goes for jumping. Holding down LB and pressing "+" control's directions does one action or another, e.g. LB & 'left' opens the inventory, LB & 'up' opens map, etc
Would be great if I could map these on keyboard like LB + A == SPACE, LB & up == "M", etc. It might also should be a feature on XIM to do not send these keys out together, but with some slight delay, i.e. simulate that one press & hold the (e.g.) LB button, then pushes (e.g.) "A", then releases both.

Hey,

you can double bind actions via the secondary buttons to achieve that, another alterntive to do this is to use a keyboard that offers macros or onboard memory. That way you can double bind actions too as for example your keyboard key K will also activate key L which are bound to LB and A respectively via the secondary config bindings.

Button combinations with delays is straying into macro territory, which is something XIM does not support.

I can give you a solution - use XIM APEX for mouse translation and Titan Two for keyboard input. Create a GPC script for Titan Two with the kb bindings, actions and delays you want.

T2 isn't as good nor as easy as XIM APEX for mouse translation, so I'd stick with XIM for mouse input for shooters. But, I doubt XIM would be useful for Neverwinter, T2 alone may suffice.
