Ideas, feature requests for next version

Here are some feature ideas for Project IRIS

1. An option to duplicate a profile. We have an option to delete a profile or create a new blank profile. It would be helpful to copy a preexisting profile and modify it as opposed to starting from scratch every time.

2. Disable all toggled keys when closing IRIS. Sometimes I'll forget to un-toggle a key before closing the program and the key remains pressed down even though Project IRIS is no longer running. This can be very annoying and I've actually locked myself out of my computer a few times. (for example if right mouse is toggled, windows won't let you left click)

3. Add the mouse click options available for blinks to interactors. Now if I want an interactor that emulates mouse clicks.. I have to use a macro.

Speaking of macros... here are some macro suggestions

1. Switch profiles with a macro. For example, if a game has a map, there may be keys I need to press on the map screen that I don't need during game play or vice versa. With this feature I could write a macro that opens the in game map and switches me to my map profile.. all with 1 interactor.

2. Execute a program with a macro. Now if I want to do this with an interactor I have to create a hotkey with autohotkey.

3. Manipulate an interactors appearance. Sometimes I have a macro that toggles a key and I'm never sure if it's toggled or not. If I had a way to change the interactors color or text, that would be very helpful in this situation.

4. This might be a reach, but an option to emulate game pad buttons would be cool. Either through macros or natively.

These are all I have for now, I may think of more lol. If anyone has anything to add, feel free to reply to this post.

Thanks Marcus, I hope you'll consider adding some of these requests.

I use IRIS practically every day., don't know what I'd do without it. I'm looking forward to the update,

Hi,

thank you for the extensive list. I quickly read through it, as it is already late.

Macros. 2. is already possible. Add this macro to your macro-file, it will open notepad via command line.

Code: Select all

  
  <MACRO id="OpenNotepad">
    <MAIN repeat="1">
      <SHELLCOMMAND program="notepad.exe"/>
    </MAIN>
  </MACRO>

I didn't know about that. Can I do it with arguments as well somehow?

Yes, just put the comments after the command, exactly as you would type it into the Windows Command Prompt.
