If you wish to create your own .hex file, here is the video tutorial for that:

—FOR THIS VIDEO—

If you want to use a .hex file I’ve already created for you, I recommend this one:

Download, install, and run QMK toolbox:

Use it to flash the .hex file onto your converter, as shown in this video.

Download the AutoHotKey installer:

Then, download this AutoHotkey script by clicking RAW, and CTRL S to save. (Delete the little .txt if it appears!)

Create this folder structure, and save it here:
C:AHK2nd-keyboardHASU_USBQMK_F24_macro_keyboard.ahk

Now, double-click on it to get it running. A friendly icon should appear in your taskbar. Boop!
Now, try typing into a text document. Instead of text, you should be seeing tooltips. Perfect! Now you can replace those with your own functions, and calls to those functions. It’s all normal AutoHotKey scripting from this point on.
