'Delay between simulated keystrokes' as separate option for individual layers.

Post by Kukurykus » Thu Mar 15, 2018 6:36 pm

That's my few months old QUESTION VII from other topic:
There is 'Mouse speed' in general settings and 'Mouse speed' for each Application in layers options. That second thing you did after my request and that really helped me :) Recently I experienced problem with 'Delay between simulated keystrokes'. I found some value I use for all applications. But to be honest still for some it's too slow while for others too fast. Woulnd't be it better to add 'Delay between simulated keystrokes' for individual application like you did with 'Mouse speed'?

Now when one of two my mouses got too old to work like used I had to switch to other I bought in the same time. It's other brand one and I found it needs to increase 'Delay between simulated keystrokes' from 7 to 9 (and even 10 as very rearely it fails with 9). I have problem with only one action I do now, so that would be bad to change 7 delay to 9 (10) for each simulated keystrokes set I use. Is there chance you let each 'Layer' (not application profile) got individual 'Delay between simulated keystrokes' option?

This delay should be nothing to do with the mouse device...
Its to do with how windows and your programs responds to injected keys (and maybe inject mouse buttons).

I agree, it is logical, but as you see it is not like it is supposed to be. For some reason there is difference.

Moreover, there is other action with simulated keystrokes that always performs very well with 7 ms dealy, but when I changed it to 9 it sometimes fails. So either I stay with new mouse with 7 ms and 1st action will fail once a while or I increase it to 9 and it will be good but the other one that doesn't work with increased delay will makes problems. (I am testing now is that - other action - connected to changed 'Delay between simulated keystrokes', but I noticed it started to happen after I changed 7 to 9 (using already new mouse). Now I changed it back to 7 to make sure was that other action affected by that change having to improve performance of that first simulated keystrokes action).

EDIT: I realised that 'layers' is to huge range still, would be better to make this option for certain Simulated Keystrokes panel (so even not for single button).

I fail to see what 2ms difference can make - especially as the delay code is NO WAY accurate enough to distinguish between 7 and 9 ms in Windows user level.

I wonder if something ELSE is at play here and the "delay" is simply masking another problem.

What other action? What is not working with 9ms delay? And why would increasing the delay by 2ms (which is not enough to notice or even time accurately - Most windows delays/sleep are not even accurate to 50ms - I think I got better than that but 1 or 2... Not likely) have any effect.

Its even ppretty pointless asking for debug log here because that will almost certainly slow things down more than 1 or 2ms!

Sorry, I have no idea what you mean by that?!

And not sure what I can do!
