  1. 1:20 Does anyone know what the keyboard on the right is, or why it has a little screen on the top???
  2. Anything like this for Mac OS?... Ive been looking for over a week.
  3. Thanks for letting me know about Auto Hot Key!
  4. I use the same keyboard
  5. Wow, I have Logitech K220
  7. Thank you for providing the code!
  8. I use macros on a G15 keyboard (the 2nd version) and AutoHotkey for games and Excel. With this video, I learned something new today: Luamacros. Thanks!
  9. my eyes were immediately assaulted by a strange bearded man who is not linus. reported.
  10. ....that is the longest way to just intercept dinput and output custom keys
  11. zboard
  12. Is there anyway I can do this for a midi key board and use it to work with OBS
  13. THANK YOU for actually providing the code! I saw that same Tom Scott video, and was dreading figuring out how to do it all myself. Figured I'd do some googling before I started working on it and found this video :D

    Edit: Discovered intercept through your github, it's even better than using luamacros!
  14. I am glad I had a working knowledge on how to use AHK... I don't. This was frustrating and I couldn't get figure it out. This is the only LTT tutorial that I have ever needed and couldn't master. wow
  15. This is quite a lot like Tom Scott's video where he made an emoji keyboard!
    EDIT: Oh shit you got the idea from that very video lol!

    The thing I love about the extra keyboard with stickers on, is you get a very visual way of doing the macros, like that elgato stream deck thing. Rather than remembering a tonne of awkward combinations you can have dozens of single press macros with cool visual aids that say exactly what they do on them.
  16. Umm, I am pretty sure there are better ways to communicate between languages than writing a file on disk. But eh, I am not familiar with lua too and this was probably your first lua program so that's fine.
  17. Dude thats Amazing! How much Time did it take you?
  18. A moment of silence for Atuun Meepo lmao
  19. 0:30 >:(
  20. ok, don't just don't, stop wasting keyboards, you don't need this crap, first track what function you do really use, get frequencies then use a fully programable layered keyboard, like preonic or planck or many others.
