Can external macros run through CUE?

I don't think that would be possible as CUE will not work with other peripheral devices.

 

This is correct. There are solutions out there (Taran Youtube videos / luamacros and some other hidregistering methods), but you're better off just using Autohotkey and remembering to set some arbitrary "Meta mode" before you start using the extra number pad (at which point you could be using your existing one).

 

Are you using a tenkeyless board? Does corsair even make that? I guess my next question is why do people do that to themselves? # pads are great.

Im using the corsair k70. I have a thing called a streamdeck which can make hotkeys for your keyboard, so im trying to make hotkeys for macros on the corsair. You would think that if you made a hotkey it would just press the button and then run the macro but it doesnt recognize the button its supposed to press. For example if I made num1 press up down as a macro and then tried to make a hotkey on the streamdeck it would only say that num1 is just the up key.

I may be way off on this but it seems like your streamdeck is the problem. Maybe if u can have your streamdeck execute an external script like in ahk that says

 

Send {up}

Send {down}

 

 

Even if it is triggered by a hot key like F13::

 

Because the screenshot you posted of Cue looks just fine to me but the stream deck screenshot looks like it only does one thing?

 

 

how and why is Cue supposed to recognize something that’s being remapped by streamdeck?

Well what I thought (which I know is wrong) is that the streamdeck would just copy the key on the keyboard, so if its just a copy it could run the macro. Also I've never really used scripts before but I don't really think there is a solution without them so I think im out of luck.

There is a simple solution--when programming your Corsair device, do NOT use a macro -- use a REMAP KEY instead. Then, to the operating system and any software, when you activate the Corsair peripheral, the operating system will identify it as the remapped key.

 

In your case, since you assigned a MACRO to the button, your streamdeck sees just that the first keystroke was sent....:eek:
