Elite Dangerous buttons dont work

Postby FiniteMatter » 12. Sep 2015, 21:24

I dont know what is wrong with this software but none of the buttons I create, or the grids I have downloaded work. The host application is not sending the command to the game. For example, I setup the '5' key in game (random jchoice, only using for testing) and I set the galaxy mjap function to it and created a button in power grid for that, and when I press the button in the grid, nothing happens in game. I can hear the click sound, but nothing works. ive tried macros, the execute command, keybinds, nothing works. The software is a neat idea but non functional for me.

I notice that in power grid, there is no way to create new commands. So al my grids use the same set of commands. Power grid is incredibly not user friendly, hard to use, and very restricted in what it can do. I am extremely upset at the 3 hours now ive wasted screwing around with this software instead of playing the game. That alone shows how poorly designed this software is.

I'm sorry you are struggling with Power-Grid. We have made it as easy as we could to allow for a huge range of customization and functionality. If you look at the grids we already have on Eltie Dangerous. You'll find many different examples of what can be done by users of this software.
Here are some tips to get you started:

Run Power-Grid in Admin mode (right click the power-grid shortcut or icon)

I have watch the videos and apparently mission something...

+ I modded the commands to match my settings.
+ I tested launching apps with no problem.
+ Created a popup app with some editable settings and it ran great
- Commands sending to the game have no effect... tried longer press, tried tap/hold...

As a programmer this seems... like it's missing a hook to the software

Power Grid is not hooking into games, it is sending Keystrokes.
Some games do not allow this and we can't do anything about it.
Oftenit helps to use a Shortcut instead of a Macro or to increase the delay time between keypresses and/or keypress and release.
Also using text macros (t hello;) can cause problems in games since many games do not buffer the input.

In my experience some keys will not work as a quick button push, if you set them as a macro with ~50+ms press-down time it should work for all commands (include complex macros obviously :) ).
