Shift + Numpad Keys?

13 Nov 2017, 16:20

Just started playing PlayerUnknown's BattleGrounds and have a weird issue and hoping someone can help with a script to fix the problem...

I use the 4 grouped arrows for movement and then the surrounding keys for other functions. One windows function I was not aware of is for example: hold shift and hit the numpad . is a shortcut for the Del key. Other games I have played, never had this issue...

Is there a way to make the shift + numpad keys function ONLY as numpad and circumvent the Del, End, Home, PageDown etc etc functions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You could set up remappings like: NumPadDel::NumPadDot
Look for the key names here: https://autohotkey.com/docs/KeyList.htm#Numpad_keys

The difference between the two numpad variants is shift.

eg Numlock on, hit 4, you get 4
hold shift and hit 4, you get left arrow.
This is normal windows behavior.

If you wish to have a hotkey that works for both variants, do it like this:

Code: Select all

Numpad4::
NumpadLeft::
	; hotkey code here
	return
You may also want to do like this, to make sure the keys still register if a modifier is held:

Code: Select all

*Numpad4::
*NumpadLeft::
	; hotkey code here
	return

Or you could manipulate the numlock state with the script. The above limitation only happens when numlock is on, when it is off *NumpadLeft:: on it's own will work without issue, so instead of circumventing the Numpad Del, End, Home, PageDown etc etc keys you use them and circumvent the Numpad Dot & Number keys instead.
