Need help with some of the lingo
I am trying to understand what people mean by shift modifier and hot swap.
here is what I do.
Xbox controller, I have a command for say, the A button = 2 ; then I have left bumper switch to make my buttons do something else, say left bumper + A = shift+2 . These are two separate commands/key bind . So would a shift modifier be where I have the left bumper be only shift and when I hit it, it would be shift+2, but it would not be a new keybind, rather if I had a macro (like in WOW) that does a command To do one thing when hitting "2" and another when hitting shift 2? Essentially this basically saves mea spot onmy hot bar. But in reality,as far as the profiler is concerned, if I don't have enough shift modifier macros, it would be a waste of left bumper and I would be better off just making the left bumper change the profile? Do I have this right? What about hot swap? What is that?
There is also one thing for which I am having trouble in games and I try to avoid it because the only way I am able to accommodate it is to switch to mouse fast. That is aloe spells. Ones which bring a virtual aoe circle on screen that need to be moved and left clicked on ground to use. This is troublesome because I have my right analog stick button press set to a sticky for camera/mouse movement, and my left analog button to my jump button (space bar). . Any ideas or creative solutions?

Someone in the past just started saying "shift modifier" when in truth and in fact its not so but actually "Shift Modes" or in some cases where certain games uses almost the entire keyboard. The game then have commands like Shift + F1 or Shift + 2 etc which is actually the Shift key on the keyboard. I hope thats cleared up. Many users tend to catch on quickly to what its meant and just don't make any comment but just go with the flow.
Why don't you post your profile and lets have a look at what you want to achieve and probably we can help you out and get things going for you. We'd like to know what game are the commands for.
