Run AutoIt script ontop of fullsceen mode

9 posts in this topic

Hi,

I'm currently playing Fallout New Vegas and Im also watching flash videos on my second monitor. I like to mute the flash vidoes when an important part of the game comes up so I am using this script which works perfectly fine.

--

HotKeySet("{=}","_off")

HotKeySet("{-}","_on")

While 1

sleep(1)

WEnd

Func _off()

Run("C:\Windows\nircmd.exe setappvolume FlashPlayerPlugin_11_3_300_270.exe 0");

EndFunc

Func _on()

Run("C:\Windows\nircmd.exe setappvolume FlashPlayerPlugin_11_3_300_270.exe 2");

EndFunc

--

The only issue is that this script does not work when the game is in fullscreen mode, just wondering is there a way to make the .au3 script run ontop of the game?

Everywhere I've read people always run games in fullscreen windowed mode to allow the script to work, so I'm guessing running the script in fullscreen mode probably isn't possible with a script cmd.

Game Game Game...Last time I reported such a thread and Melba23 said its alright. The rules just make it difficult to know what to do... any ideas?

As for the newbie... have something:

#include <Misc.au3>

While 1
If _IsPressed("BD") then _on()
If _IsPressed("BB") then _off()
If _IsPressed("1B") then ExitLoop
WEnd

Func _off()
Run("C:Windowsnircmd.exe setappvolume FlashPlayerPlugin_11_3_300_270.exe 0")
EndFunc

Func _on()
Run("C:Windowsnircmd.exe setappvolume FlashPlayerPlugin_11_3_300_270.exe 2")
EndFunc

Such threads are OK because the OP doesn't automate the game itself.

Just report the threads and let the Mods make the decision; it's as simple as that. You don't even have to comment in the thread.

MKISH (and anyone else reading),

water has it absolutely right - if there is no interaction with the game itself (and in this case the interaction is with FlashPlayer) then the thread is quite legal. There was no interaction with the game in the thread you reported last time - which is why I was happy for it to continue. ;)

But GEOSOft has the best idea - just report it and let the Mods take a look. We try our best to be fair and even-handed - and we are grateful to those sensible forum members who take the time to report possible problems. You are right far more often then you are wrong. :thumbsup:

torgock,

As you have seen, mentioning "game" in this forum immediately raises hackles. Next time please make it a more general enquiry and then we avoid all the angst. :D

And if you want to know what is and is not allowed here, I recommend reading the Forum Rules before you post again. ;)
