Using two keyboards in a gaming situation

June 12, 2010 at 11:38:18
Specs: Windows Vista
I have two keyboards, one is a dell USB keyboard, nothing extravagant. The other is a PS-2 HP keyboard, also nothing extravagant.

I'm an avid gamer, and I frequently find myself wanting a better keyboard for gaming, ones with more keys, or macro capabilities, etc etc
However, I'm also without a job, so I can't go out and blow $150 on a gaming keyboard.

So, my question, could I possibly connect both keyboards to my computer, while being able to configure one, giving each key a new binding, or something to that effect?

Example - I'm playing an mmo, on my current keyboard, F1 will switch to my staff for magic using, F2 switching to my melee weapon. I would like F1 and F2 on my second keyboard to have a function. possibly switching between my hotbars, without interfering with my current weapon.

Any help would be much appreciated

i'd be really surprised if you could pull this off the way you're describing. i would think you'd basically be rewriting the drivers for the second keyboard, so that the OS doesn't recognize its inputs as being defaults.

could be a fun project, but there'd be a lot of hacking involved.

You can use two keyboards but only if they are
USB keyboards you will have to unplug the PS2 and get another USB key Board becouse
PS2 is old tek and will couse a conflit then niether will work.
