[normal] Alt+[a-z] and '5' macro doesn't work

Post by tangar » Wed May 09, 2018 3:05 pm

Setup: problem occures in Windows client; num lock is OFF

1) can't assign alt+[a-z] to macro. Currently I'm trying to move all regular keys (from Aa to Zz) to ctrl and alt to have more 'space' for runie macroses and I found that alt+[a-z] macro doesn't work.

In the past there was 'kinda' similar problem - macro with alt-key paused TomeNET. It was solved with AHK script, but.... alt-key macro works _only_ for num pad:

alt+[1-9] - works.
alt+[a-z] doesn't work.

At the same moment macro alt+[a-z] works in World of Warcraft, for example.

2) key '5' at NumPad doesn't work. It's not possible to assign to it any macro. All other numpad numbers works. - THIS FIXED IN MY ADDON

3) some keys has the same bahavior.. I'm not sure could it be splitted somehow, but if it's possible - much more keys would be available. EX:
[hotkey = duplicate]
Home = 7
End = 1
Page up = 9
Page down = 3
.. 'arrows' also duplicate numbers.

I am a martian octipewpie and have 378.9 digits.

I found using the following for macros ...
12 F Keys
12 Shift F Keys
12 Ctrl F Keys
11 Ctrl Numpad (-5)
03 Shift Numpad
... was starting to get a bit outta controlage.

Point being is how many is enough since you blew my mind mentioning AAzz.
Put a whole new lime light on the situation. Hmmm
