Hey guys I got A question,

How could i send a packet to a program whilst I am on another window? I would want the packet to press a key. Whilst you are on another window, the program is on a pause menu. But the game still runs but you can't do anything manually, it is like minecraft if you have heard of it. I have seen programs which is able to do this. I am not sure if packet is the right word but I guess you guys will know what is needed to be done.

John, you have jumped to the wrong conclusion. I do not intend to make a program to automate things on games. I think you thought this because I mentioned minecraft, I mentioned minecraft because it was the only thing which I could compare it to which most people will understand.

I'm not sure what packet means but I have heard it been used before when doing something similar to this, the way I explained it is the best I could :/ If you have played minecraft you would kind of know what I am talking about. By packet I thought it meant something which imitates a key being pressed whilst not on the program. If you just send a key press to the certain program it will not work at it is at pause menu. But because the program is still running behind it you can somehow send a packet through the pause menu.

NewNinja, I am with John on this one. We are more than happy to assist, but your initial post screams game automation. If this is truly not the case, please try explaining more explicitly what you want to do? Perhaps use the guide below:

How could i send a packet to a program whilst I am on another window?

  • What is the "other window" you'll be on?
  • What program do you want to send the "packet" to?

I agree - your next post had better explain very clearly what you are trying to do. ;)
