When I program some buttons on the Controller mate to press a combination of normal ASCII keys, I cannot duplicate the smooth "key repeat" response I get by pressing the same keys on the keyboard itself..

Is it possible to get keys to repeat at the native OS key repeat rate?

SOLVED..!!!

I discovered that by separating the key presses from the key releases into the two "ON" and "OFF" columns the keys will repeat as any keyboard input would.

Can you explain with a screenshot maybe? I don't get it the way you've described it. keep in mind I'm brand new to ControllerMate and still figuring out the basic and don't have a programming background to build on.

I'm interested in this, I will undoubtedly make use of your solution although my immediate interest is in smoother mouse "scrolling".

Unfortunately this forum doesn't allow images to be uploaded.. but basically just look at the "properties" window and note that when you've assigned a button to a keypress, the key on and key off events are all in the "When turned ON" column.

If you move the key off events to the "When turned OFF" column, then the assigned keypress will repeat as long as the controllermate button is pressed.

Dude, thank you. You just gave me the answer to my issue that I've been struggling with all night. I was having issues with a shift + left arrow combo and the shift key kept staying pressed. Finally I can exclude the press or release of keys. Woot. Noob hurdle #1 cleared lol. Very Happy

For anyone else scratching their heads, we're talking about the Keypresses block.
