Logitech G11 Gaming Keyboard Sun Mar 23, 2008 9:19 pm  •   #2790

A downloadable Controller Type for the Logitech G11 Keyboard was added today.

The Controller Type adds compatibility with the "M1", "M2", "M3", "MR" buttons and the "PC / Joystick" slider. It also uses the correct names for the "G1"-"G18" buttons. This also removes a number of controls that don't actually exist on the device.

When using the G11, users should create Controller Configuration that turns off the native behavior of the G1 - G18 keys. By default, these buttons will act like standard F-keys or the standard number keys. Turning off (or redefining) these buttons will allow greater flexibility in this keyboards usage.

Hi Ken

Thank you so much for going though the expense of BUYING a G11 and doing this for us.

Just a question. Were you able to give the M-keys functionality in the sense that they act as switches for 3 different layers of the G11's G-keys?

Thanks
TB

No, the M1, M2, M3, and MR buttons simply act like buttons ... they don't change the behavior of the G keys. When thinking about layers, it is helpful not to think that the button's function is changing. Rather, think along the lines of making a change to ControllerMate's response to the buttons.

For example, you could setup a button on the keyboard that turns various pages or groups of ControllerMate's programming. This can change how ControllerMate reacts, but doesn't change the buttons themselves.

There is an example of doing something similar to this with the n52 in this thread (third post).
