Multiple Keystrokes not working in Midi Translator Classic


I want to use my midi instrument to trigger actions in an MMO game. There are several hotbars, and I’ve set up the keybinds in-game, and they work. Ctrl+Alt+Shift+1 all held down together will trigger the action, when input manually. When I set up Midi Translator Classic to send this key combination, the only one that seems to come through is “1”, triggering the wrong hotbar action. Everything else works as intended!

Is there a better way to program multiple keystrokes? Is this doing what I want it to do at all?
Outgoing: Keystroke: Ctrl(Alt(Shift(1 )))

It might be that the game your playing does a direct (bypassing drivers) way of accessing keystrokes. Keystrokes are not possible in all games. Have you tested the key combination with any other application or game to see if MT Classic keystrokes work elsewhere?

I just tested on my Windows 10 system. My test sends the keystroke to autohotkey. I have autohotkey to fire a key sequence “hellon” upon receiving cntl-alt-shift-1. Then I opened an editor and it worked just right so it is possible that your game is bypassing Windows drivers.

Gah… that’s what it is. I found another program to test it, and it does work. It’s just the game’s fault, then. Thank you for helping me figure that out!

My pleasure! Sorry it didn’t work out for you for this game!

Actually, I just tested something with AutoHotKey. I had MT Classic send one command, triggering an AutoHotKey script to send the Ctrl+Alt+Shift+1 command, and that worked. How is AHK able to send the command to the game?

AutoHotkey has several “SEND” methods to trick games. SendInput, SendPlay, SendRaw.

Sometime you have to test various methods to get it to work.

I’m not quite sure what method Bome MT Pro uses.
