    Does RR allow for keyboard keys to be mapped for all its on-screen buttons?

    I want to set up a few physical buttons on my dash to control things like volume, and maybe track fwd and reverse... things I use often.

    I find the feel of a hard button beats hands down the use of a touchscreen, at least for the functions used often.

    What I'm planning on doing is taking apart an old USB keyboard, and use the controller in it to map the button presses to actual keys. Shouldn't be too tough.

    Well, the only thing that I can say is to use the NEW config and it has a wizzard just for setting up this...

    Use the KeyTBL on the left side, towards the bottom...

      I'm having problems navigating with a keyboard. I just want left/right keys to move through menu items on a screen.

      I edited keyTBL.ini using the key tool and get this

      2085,"CTRLLEFT"
      2087,"CTRLRIGHT"

      But when I load the skin, nothing happens when I hit left or right. Is there something I have to do in the skin to tell it which buttons to switch between?
      Thanks

        Try removing the "20" as that is the CTRL key modifier.

            2085,"CTRLLEFT" = CTRL & lower case "u"
            2087,"CTRLRIGHT" = CTRL & lower case "w"

            Sorry my bad...you need to use:

            37,"CTRLLEFT"
            39,"CTRLRIGHT"

              OK, at least now it does something but what happens is it jumps to my back button and won't change to anything else.
              This happens in Elite and Digital FX but works in Carwings and LSXVoid so it must be a skin issue. Any idea what would cause this?

                I'm actually seeing the same thing, using the latest releases of both RR and Digital FX 4.0 on XP SP3. I haven't figured out what's causing it, but I did notice that it only happens with the keyboard controls.

                I have a SpaceNavigator set up to send CTRLLEFT and CTRLRIGHT, and that works properly, but with a keyboard I see the same thing as kelmk, where the focus goes straight to the menu button. So anyway it seems like it's not the CTRLLEFT and CTRLRIGHT commands that are the problem, but something else. Maybe the VB runtime is handling the arrow press somehow and that needs to be overridden?

                In the RR debug log I don't see anything out of the ordinary. In both cases it appears to just be executing a normal CTRLLEFT or CTRLRIGHT command.

                This isn't a big deal for me since I won't be using a keyboard for changing button focus once I actually install everything, but hopefully this info can help in tracking down what the problem is...

                  Turns out it was a button in the bottom left pixel that causes it. moving it 1 pixel over fixes the issue.
                  How are you sending commands with the space nav?

                    Hmm, that's interesting. Good to know.

                    I'm using a driver app written by a forum member to interface the SpaceNav with RR.

                    The driver app can be found at http://sourceforge.net/projects/spacenavdrvr/
                    And the relevant forum thread is at http://www.mp3car.com/vbulletin/soft...nt-thread.html
