M90 Software Bugs and Functionality thread

I recently bought a M90 and I am delighted with it. However, I was not satisfied the functional use of keystrokes. Why i can assign only one key? For example, I should like to assign "Ctrl+Alt+Space" on M90 button as keystroke and hold them down on the mouse as I hold them pressed on the keyboard . It's so hard to do?


I know that instead, i can assign a macro. For example, I write a macro to "Ctrl+Alt+Space". First, I turn on the "Ignore delays" in the Delay Options. Then I record a macro by pressing a button, but not release them. Then I set the "Fixed Macro Delay Time" on 65535 ms (that is maximum). And finally i set playback options on "Repeat while pressed".


In my opinion it is too complicated. Is it possible to support multiple keystrokes?


I also want to offer, addition of mouse clicks to the macro. Inability to do this, I was upset.


Apologies for Google's bad English.

The functionality of a keystroke is to assign a mouse button the ability to map a single key. What you are trying to do is not the definition of a keystroke, but a macro as you are trying to string simultaneous key pressing. Its akin to instead of typing a word out, you are proposing we make a button instantly spell the word out for you with the keystroke feature, and this is not what a keystroke is designed to do. As you pointed out, you would have to create a macro and the end result is exactly what you want. It does involve several more steps, but what you are asking the software to do is in addition more steps than a keystroke.


As for the mouse click feature, what are you trying to do exactly that needs a mouse click?

I use the M90 is not for games, and for a program in which a lot, a lot of action by holding the keyboard shortcuts and Clicking. The fact that some of the buttons on the M90 are far away, and mouse clicking while hold these buttons quite difficult. It not impossible, but difficult. That's why I asked whether it is possible to record macro with the mouse click.


I do not say "Give it to me now!". I understand that you have plenty of other activities. But such a function would be helpful.


Clearly, this is difficult because the user turns on the Macro Recorder by mouse-clicking. Perhaps this is why you do not have such a functional. But I would agree that even if you had suggested to me how I can add mouse click directly to the .XML file, for example. Through of HEX-Editor or whatever else is necessary.

I did some investigating. Macros are written in an incomprehensible code. I am not a programmer, I do not know. Google gave nothing.


For example, the shift key is a00001. a20001 is control key. The letter "A" is 410001. Each key has a six-digit mark.


A sequence of Shift+Ctrl+A for button number 9 will be written as:



But what is the code for the mouse buttons?


Since the code for the left click is as:


с2? с20? с20000?


Ask the developers of the correct code somehow, please. Then I can just substitute the correct code in my macro.

Looks like it may be based on ASCII in hexidecimal notation, as 41 is hex for A.

Thank you for your help. It is this encoding (They added 0001 to down, and 0000 for released).


But it still does not work. Since the value of the basic keys (such as "left" "right" "middle" "forward" etc.) and advanced buttons (such as "Sniper") set is not where everyone else.


For example, this is a function of the left click:


For Right:


Profile Up:


32 is for macro.

And so on. They are defined in a separate "frame". It's something like hard-coded, i dont know.


I'm still a little experiment. And try to cheat by setting the macro function with the left click button_function. Like this:



It works, but partially. The last button is pressed simultaneously with a left click, but the rest can not be played.

We'll have to admit that the ASCII encoding and mouse clicks are different things. And they're not even close. Yet I have learned many interesting things.


I'll wait for the official features. Thanks for helping again.



Sorry for doublepost.


And one more suggestion. Add the function GoToProfile№. This will always refundable to most use profile, instead of frantically clicking ProfileDown\Up. There is always the profiles that we use more often than others. It would be great for the button number 4.

Just decided to post a small note on functionality.

I use a mechanical keyboard with no media controls built in and have relied on my previous mouse (razer Lachesis) to control volume next song previous song etc.


It would be really helpful if there was a way to make the buttons on the M90 do the same!

Hope I haven't overlooked a way of doing it but fishing through the settings there doesn't seem to be any method.
