I need help

18 May 2019, 02:44

Hi i'm new to AutoHotKey and here's some context to my problem

I'm using a old laptop with a defective z key (I cant type z) and i reached a stage of a game were without being able to press the z key I cant continue. I tried setting up a simple script to be able to press z and Z but it still doesn't work in the game (Mechanic Miner) and the game doesn't allow key remapping.Can anyone help?Sorry for my English BTW.

my z script
+f::
Send, z
return

my Z script
+g::
Send, Z
return

Have you tried running the script as administrator?

Many games and programs block input from external programs to avoid macros and cheating. That could be why the script isn't working on that specific game.
You could try compiling your script to an .exe file, then running that as an administrator. Otherwise there isn't really much I can do
