    I love MMORPGs and lately have been wanting to try an experiment.

    I want to be able to macro most if not all of the keys on my secondary keyboard I have without buying any hardware.

    Example: When I press the W key in a game, I walk forward. With the way things are now, no matter which W key I press my character walks forward because all the computer knows is that I am pressing W, not which W I am pressing. I would like for it to be able to differentiate between the W of the first keyboard and the second, as well as with most other keys, so that I can use my second keyboard to line up my skills using a games keybinding options.

    I understand there are systems in place that are more efficient and some MMORPS offer much easier solutions, but this is not for competitive play and more for a fun little experiment.

    I have heard of Team Player, is that my solution here? Seems like a nice program but I am not sure if it would work here.

    I can code, but would prefer not to dig into my system and manually align a few hundred keys to work individually and certainly don't trust myself to create any software myself for this.

    According to my knowledge there is no such way to recognize two different keyboard on one PC.It quite possible that third party application can do that.

    Hello RedWolf1,

    I have never done this; however, it is my understanding that you can use one USB keyboard and one PS2 keyboard simultaneously. Together, they should act as one single keyboard. Personally though, I can foresee some potential conflicts occurring if both keyboards attempt to use the same drivers at the same time. ;)

    Good Luck!
