Xbox shillings, big tex screen, z touch M code
« on: September 05, 2015, 04:16:08 AM »
Hi guus
So i am using the big tex screenset, I am also using the xbox controller shillings plugin and I can assign the xbox controller button a macro, I want to assign the z touch off macro to one of the buttons,  but the xbox shillings plugin asks for an M# but when i go to edit button to have a look at what .m1s it is assign to its called hiddenscript.m1s, Am I missing something, how do I find the m code for this z touch of macro?

Thanks
Chris

There is no M code for the macros in the Big Tex screenset. The macro's are embedded in the screenset.

You can copy the macro code and save it as an M code, and then edit the screenset to have the button call the M code instead of running the macro. This needs to be done in a screen editor.

Aaah ok well that makes sense, can i just put the script into notepad and save it as M##.m1s? And just put it in the macros folder and have the button call it or does it need to be embed into mach somehow?

Yes. Save it in the Mach3\macros\yourprofile\ folder.

You need to change the button in a screen designer to call the M code, or use a macro like Code "M###".
