Hello all users, I just got this G13, and I'm having a couple issues with it if anyone in here can help.
Hopefully this is not a Script issue, I don't know how to write Script. Hopefully someone can help?? Please..
If this is Script writing, it would be for 2 different buttons I suppose. here is my issue....
I'm playing Call of Duty 4- Wodern Warfare (1)
I installed the CD software that the G13 came with and it says V3.03 (Windows), V3.02 (Macintosh)
I'm on a PC with Windows 7 x64 on a 2 month old Laptop
1st Issue- I read on here how to assign the joystick, but it does not work in this game for some reason, I don't know if it works anywhere else either. I clicked the joystick, scrolled down and selected "Joystick" but it does nothing for me. Instead I had to assign WASD for it to work. I guess it will work for this game, but in what game will it be an issue for me?
2nd issue- (maybe it should be the 1st because this is important to me) In the game when you are standing, you can get down in 3 levels- Stand, Crouch, and Prone. When I'm standing, is there a way to set a button to "Recycle" or something similar?
Lets say instead of using G1 to Stand/Jump, G8 to Crouch, and G15 to Prone (Lay Down) I want Button G8(1st time I press it) to CROUCH, 2nd time I press it- to GO PRONE, and then I would press the STAND/JUMP button once to go back to CROUCH and then again to be fully Standing.
It would be like making the button go "DOWN' to hit twice for Crouch then Prone on 2nd press, and "UP" once to get back up to crouch then again to get back to Stand. These are not options in the Macros or in the game so I don't know what to do.
The best thing I can compare it to is the Pinnacle Game Profiler, it does this in this game with the X and A buttons.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for looking at my issue, have a nice day.

when you assign the thumbstick to "Joystick" it means it will be treated as a DirectInput analog joystick. so you can use it with games that support DirectInput analog joysticks. if CoD4-MW doesn't support analog joysticks, then you won't want to choose this option for that game.
if your game doesn't support the use of DirectInput analog joysticks, then you should use the default thumbstick setting which is to assign each direction to a virtual keypress (WASD, etc.). starting with v3.04 of the drivers, you can also assign the thumbstick to work as a virtual mouse.
you can set up G1/G8 the way you describe using a Lua script. you assign those keys the "Script" action, then you go into the script editor and fill in the details for what you want those keys to do in the form of a short Lua program. I'd write a sample script, but I don't know what keys the script would have to send. you just call them "stand", "crouch" and "prone" but you never say what the keys associated with those actions are.
