GPL Key Master is a utility designed for keyboard drivers, to overcome the configuration limitations that GPL imposes when assigning keys to control GPL.
While creating new graphics for GPL mods I found that I needed to be able to quickly test new MIPs by jumping into GPL and doing a quick test drive to see whatever I had been editing. Setting up my wheel to be able to do so was tiresome and I decided to configure GPL to use the keyboard so I could test edits more efficiently. I quickly found that the range of keys that GPL allowed me to use were restrictive to say the least, and so GPL Key Master was born.
GPL Key Master edits a driver controls.cfg directly to allow you to assign practically any key to a control in GPL. To use it, simply open the desired controls.cfg file, assign the keys you require and save the file. A more detailed description of the process is included in the readme.txt file.
You must have the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 installed on your computer for GPLKM to function. If you don't have it already, it can be downloaded from The Microsoft Download Centre.
I have had this application sitting on my hard drive for a number of months but have not released it due to it being a beta and untested on other machines. I do not forsee myself having the time to complete it so I thought I had best release it as is.
This software is a beta and so may contain bugs. It uses a UK keyboard layout for assignment so keys that you select may not be displayed correctly in the application. They should, however, still work correctly in the sim (I hope!).
Some combinations of keys do not work, but I am not sure which, so please feel free to report non-working keys and other bugs in this thread. I cannot guarantee that I will be able to refine the application but if I do get a chance to I will be happy to do so.
