Wait 9 seconds inbetween using a specific keybind

Post by NuclearSushi »

XMBC Version 2.19.2
Windows Version Windows 10 64bit
Mouse Information (brand/model) RedDragon M908
Relevant Computer Information (CPU, RAM etc) i54660 24GB Ram
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC? No
Did the problem occur after a Windows update/upgrade?No
How long have you used XMBC? 2 years
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows? English

Is it possible to have one key selected to be used every 9 seconds? I put a {WAIT:9}9 into the list, the 9 key being the one I want to be used every 9 seconds but it caused my entire macro to hang. Help is appreciated.

EDIT: Just to clarify, I'm having a key being spammed more than necessary while my macro button is being held down. I'd just like to use it once every 9 seconds or thereabouts.

I dont think thats possible. Simulated keys are executed in sequence, and the WAIT and WAITMS commands are part of that sequence. You cant press some keys and others differently in the same sequence. Just not possible in XMBC

You might need to look at Autohotkey or similar which allow much more configuration/scripting
