I'm currently messing with key binds, and I was curious if you could bind one key over another with just basic windower functions.

Random example: Up Arrow -> LeftALT

I was tossing the idea around of making the numpad keys execute in-game macros, but don't know exactly how to define them.

I use tons of other keybinds

Examples from SAM

//bind !h input /ja hasso <me>
//bind ^h input /ja seigan <me>
//bind !s input /ja Sekkanoki <me>

/DNC for all jobs i got
//bind !q input /ja "Curing Waltz III" <me>

to name a few. Very handy.

Oh sorry misread a bit, while at work.

To bind to numpad

//bind num1 <something>
//bind !num1 <something>
//bind ^num1 <something>
//bind @num1 <something>
it might be numpad1

@ being windows key
! alt key
^ ctrl key

I'm not sure about this one though.

Thanks for the quick response.

I should have mentioned: I figured out that much already. The problem is I don't know what that "something" would be for other keys.

bind numpad1 1 (doesn't work)
bind numpad1 <1> (doesn't work)

I'm just not really sure how to define the keys. key1?

What do you want it to do?

bind numpad1 1 does nothing really


bind numpad1 input /ma "warp" <me>

This will fire off the warp magic on yourself when hitting the numpad 1.

I basically want to use the numpad numbers with ctrl/alt for macros instead of the regular numbers.

Hmm I'm not sure how to fire off existing SE macros, or if emulating existing function keys will work (you can try my below example, but dont think it will work). I would strongly suggest looking into GS and/or some old windower macros though. Theres quite alot of good guieds for that with a simple google search.

Try this one just in case though, however I really doubt it will work

bind !numpad1 input !1
bind ^numpad1 input ^1

^ = ctrl
! = alt

A few options exist:

A) Reassign your numpad keys in your Windows Registry to match their regular counterparts (meh),
B) Binding each key with ctrl or alt to a series of aliases or GearSwap commands (also meh), or
C) This madness:


Save these as numpad_binds.txt and numpad_unbinds.txt in your Windower/scripts folder, then add exec numpad_binds.txt somewhere in your init.txt file (also in scripts).

Also, this disables the regular functions of the numpad keys unless you hold CTRL+ALT, so you might want to configure it a bit. I know I use numpad0 to tab around.
