HID Macros not working when in Game

Post by ReeferFro » 06 Jun 2021, 16:49

I use HID macros for my second keyboard, by setting up the F13- F24 buttons for my soundboard.
When I Focus HIDmacros and then click on to windows desktop the key binds work.
However as soon as I go into a game the second keyboard is not separated anymore and just acts the same way as the main keyboard.
I have HID macros running in the background. launched in administrator mode.
I also tried running the game in administrator mode.

Anyone maybe has an idea how I can fix this?
Any help would be much appreciated!

Your game is probably reading the keyboard "directly", at low level. Hidmacros can't block such direct access
