Hold down shift

4 posts in this topic

So I downloaded autoit and I was surprised to find it was very complicated...

Anyone can give me a help with the following?

I need a script that:

Sends shift down.

Keeps it down for 5 seconds.

Sends shift up

Waits 8 seconds.

Repeats

 

It's just it seems kinda pointless to learn the whole language for only this script, and it's really complicated so I don't think I will learn it fast Im kinda of a thick-head

I started autoit with zero programming knowledge.  Its not that bad.  Anyway, look up the SEND command in the help file.  It will have everything you need.  SLEEP will do your waits...

EDIT:  I am feeling generous today....

Okay so this is what I came up with:

While 1=1
Send("{LSHIFT down}")
Sleep(4000)
Send("{LSHIFT up}")
Send("{LSHIFT down}")
Sleep(4000)
Send("{LSHIFT up}")
Sleep(5000)
WEnd
 
 
The loop works BUT it wont run into the program (The Elder Scrolls Online)

It's not detecting the key-strokes. Any idea on how can I solve this?

Skray1234,

Welcome to the AutoIt forum. :)

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now (there is also a link at bottom right of each page) - particularly the bit about not discussing game automation - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked. :naughty:

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope. :)
