Well, I hate to mention it, but I recently got a Vortex Race 3 Keyboard and I finally tested out sending the Teletype preprogrammed macros or programmed commands and it doesn’t seem to work.
I’ve updated to the latest firmware, “3.0 KBD Fix”. And when I type, It doesn’t drop any keys. But when I attempt to use the feature of sending key commands via the programming layers the text appears to drop a ton of letters.
For example I programmed the keyboard to write “charlie” when I press the Q key. It works every time on the laptop.
On the Teletype, the first time it writes…
the next time,
one more time,
So, it appears to be dropping a lot of letters for some reason. I did test out a time delay function on the keyboard. Where it will type the macros out much slower, with a half second between the letters. But it still drops the keys. So I dont think it must be a refresh rate or scanning rate that is the issue.
Would anyone here have any ideas what might be happening?
I think I remember seeing Scanner Darkly mentioning somewhere about how keyboard protocol is a bit different and odd, so I think this could be one of those oddities.
But any help is much appreciated! I would love to be able to get this working.
