Is possible to have virtual keys?

Like, I have a k70 rgb and I was wondering. If we could have virtual keys to have more binds.

 

In the case use like wasd to walk but ctlr + w be a "virtual key" (MK1 (macro 1)) to do another action.

 

And just in case, this could result in VAC ban or something like that?

F13 - F24 exist, which Windows picks up without any issues. The macros on my K95 are bound to them and they are just what you describe, extra keys.

 

There is a small issue with them when playing games, though, and IDK what causes it: most games will only see the first 3 of them, F13 - F15. The rest are not seen.

The way I understood it is that he wants to assign a macro that runs when you press CTRL + W, this is not possible. You can assign a macro only to a single key.

 

I was looking at an old post of mine to copy-paste here, and I see we have met before :biggrin: (http://forum.corsair.com/v3/showthread.php?p=852887). Here's the text what I was searching for: "Set Alt to switch to a different mode while pressed. In that mode set your macros on A and S. I use this, works flawlessly."

 

The modifier key switches, while pressed, to a profile/mode where the macro is bound to a single button.

Noob question: Can the macro finish by sending that single key value on to the in-focus program? IOW, if I set up a macro for the W key can it finish by passing the W character on to the other program?

So you want a macro that sends (Button1 -> ... -> Button N -> Button X), where X is the button you press and 1...N are always constant? As far as I'm aware the only way to do that is to make a different macro for every key you need, with the last button being different.

Define CTRL to do a mode/profile switch while the key is held down. In the new mode/profile, define every key used in a control sequence, so that you don't lose the functionality you would expect from the CTRL key.

This can be generalized to use key-combinations using printing keys, using the ideas of http://forum.corsair.com/forums/showthread.php?t=141231
