How to setup and edit Macro key in NoxPlayer 5.1.0.0

Editable Button (Macro key) is a newly introduced feature under Keyboard Control in NoxPlayer 5.1.0.0.

What does it do? Through editing the Macro Key, you could designate a string of actions to a single keystroke. For example, in Vainglory, during a battle/match, you could set the Macro so when you press a certain key it zoom in the map and when you release the key, you zoom out.

Where is it? To access and set the Macro keys, Click Keyboard Control on the right hand tool bar in NoxPlayer, then in the keyboard control panel appeared on the left side of the window, drag the Editable Button into the window and click the pencil icon on the lower right bottom of the button to edit it.

Editing options:

Now let’s check out what editing options you have over a Macro key

Macro Editor: You could click the plus button (+) in the Command line to add command to this box and edit them

Command line:

Click:

The two numbers beside click represent the X and Y coordinates of the click point on Nox screen, if you don’t know the coordinates of a specific button, simply click it and the X and Y coordinates will be automatically filled in.

Delay:

The number showed here is the time between one action and next, measured by Millisecond. 1 Millisecond = 0.001 Second

Press & Release:

These two commands are usually bound with other actions. For example, when pressed, perform a certain click. When released, perform another click at a different place.

Loop:

The number after Loop represents how many times you would like an operation to repeat.
