Or are they only clickable with mouse?

I want to assign buttons from my wheel to them, but I can't find any key or key combo that triggers them :( Is there some way to assign them through some .ini file?

Thanks :)

Afaik there is no way to activate them without a mouse.
They are like hotspots e.g. the mousepointer needs to be clicked within the green and red areas.

But maybe you can try it with this option? https://www.computer...es/ch000542.htm

As Pavel says the red button is esc.
I use X-padder or joytokey and assigned the esc key onto my controller. Also the enter button works and can be mapped too.

Well, being able to assign green flag to a controller button would be very comfortable, but hey, GPL is 20 years old... ;D

Thank you all for answers and advice about "mouse keys" and xppadder :)

Yay!

I've managed to assign green flag button using AutoHotkey program and Logitech Profiler.

If somebody is interested:

1) AutoHotkey needs to be run as administrator, if you run GPL as admin or launch GPL with GEM+ as admin.

2) In AutoHotkey, go File > Edit Script, add following lines and save the file:
#IfWinActive, Papyrus Window
Tab::Click 610,467
#IfWinActive

3) In AutoHotkey, go File > Reload Script.

4) In Logitech Profiler, in your GPL profile, assign Tab keystroke to the button that you want to use as green flag :)

This makes sense because I know that you can use TAB to move from one button to another and then you can use Space or Enter to "press" the button. In Setup Window where you fill in Name etc. you can also use TAB to jump from text input to text input.
