AHK Scripting in War of the Roses (The F Keys)

Post by Foxx » 20 Apr 2014, 08:09

I currently use the Alt&Numpad keys to present an in-game RCon command. For example if I wish to kick a player, the script is:

;Alt2 will type out the kick command - add the end of the player ID

!Numpad2::
Send, y{Backspace 5}
SendRaw,/rcon password /kick_player 11000010
return

I wanted to know if it was possible to use the "F Keys" in the same way for example:

;F2 will type out the kick command - add the end of the player ID

!F2::
Send, y{Backspace 5}
SendRaw,/rcon password /kick_player 11000010
return

Would this work or does it require more code for the F key to have the same functionality or would it not work at all.

Regards.

As near as I can tell, the F-keys are just another key as far as AHK is concerned.

I would agree with that however, how do I map an F key into my script.

Currently my script says that if I hit the Alt key and a number from the numpad a command will appear in-game for me to action.

Somehow I need to identify the F Key code/action/whatever and type it into my script.

The above doc will tell you precisely how to set up a F hotkey... after that, setting up the action is the same as with any other hotkey.

Keep in mind that the f1 through f12 keys often have ingame functions that could be interfered with if you remap it using a hotkey. It's important to check to see which F keys are being used by the game and which are not. You can also use the shift, alt, and control modifiers to the F hotkey as well to help keep the game's built in f keys secure.

Yes, this is the correct syntax for binding something to Alt-F2
