I’ve just received my G13 game board (I think that’s what its called) and man is it bitchin!!! I love it!!!
I’ve made a macro for Lock On Flaming Cliffs 2, a combat flight sim that scans my radar automatically left, center, right, up one degree azimuth, then right center left, down two degrees azimuth, rescan etc.
The key strokes (don’t know if it matters, I assume not) are:
Rshift + / = right
Rshift +, = left
Rshift +; = up
Rshift +. =down
With a seven second delay between movement for detection. When a contact is detected, how can I stop the macro where it is, to engage?

off the top of my head, I can't think of a great way to do this. I think your best bet here is to do it via Lua instead of as a macro, and set it up so that it runs until you hold down a mouse button or a shift key (or ctrl or alt) to stop it. as a side effect, while it's running you won't be able to use any of the G keys (or the thumbstick) for anything else.
another option is to set up a Lua script so that you can press one button every 7 seconds. each time you press it it will do the next action, but it is up to you to press it every 7 seconds (or more if you want to stop and do something else first like attack).
actually, this might be something better done using a third-party tool like AutoHotKey. set up a G key to a binding that kicks off the AutoHotKey macro and possibly another key to abort it. I don't know if that's actually possible, I've never used it.
I do not work for Logitech. I'm just a user.

my first thought is
create macro: note first create without delays then right click in the edit window and "insert delay" then click pause click the delay to edit time as nesessary
then set the macro to a key AND set repeat option > toggle. Note repeat options sometimes dont work in the past and havent tried them in a while . so it may not repeat but with the macro above it willdo 1 full sweep off 1 press.. no matter what, if the repeat does work press the button to start then push again to stop. but im not sure if it will finish out the macro and release the shift...
but LUA would be the best way to go but kgobers the expert there.
