Can’t figure out a super simple script

14 May 2019, 02:28

Okay so a few months back, I downloaded AHK and made a tiny little script. All the script did was, when I pressed the ‘/‘ button, it would press ‘F3’ And ‘b’ at the same time. I had to make a script for this because in this game I’m playing, for whatever reason, i can’t activate f3+b by myself. There are other similar things like f3+h which all work, but f3+b does not. Anyways, I made that script and it worked and then I stupidly deleted it and now that I’m trying to make it again, I can’t figure it out. I had read through the introduction and tutorial and everything and figured it out that way, but now that I’m trying to do it again, I can’t figure what I’m doing wrong. I have it set up as:

/:: Send, F3 & b

And that’s all I want it do, but I think it’s only acting F, not F3. I’m also on a laptop so I don’t know if I need to include the Function key, but I don’t remember doing that the first time, but maybe I’m wrong. I also feel like I had some kind of bracket around the F3 & b but I tried that with {} those and it didn’t work either. Am I missing a piece, or just formatting, or something else? I feel like an idiot cause this is like the most basic you can get. Maybe I’m overthinking it?

Code: Select all

/:: Send, {F3 Down}b{F3 Up}
Oops someone was faster, however in my experience for games, this one tends to give the fewest problems because some games have lazy key listeners.
