Calling .exe with 360 Controller Button?

Recommended Posts


Good morning,

I'm new to this community, and new to the scripting language as well. I'm currently in the process of making a new "controller convenience" Mod for Skyrim. For that I used AutoIT to create a script that allows me to turn off the Xbox 360 controller by executing the .exe. Unfortunately there are two problems, I can't solve, probably I'm a total noob when it comes to using your scripting language...:)

Here's the script code:

$nController = 0
$XInputDLL = DllOpen("xinput1_3.dll")
DllCall($XInputDLL, "long", 103, "int", $nController)

I know, it's nothing fancy, but it does the trick. So, could anyone introduce me on reaching my gaols?

1. how to not make Skyrim crash when executing the .exe?

2. how to execute the .exe when pressing the X-Box button?

Welcome to the AutoIt forum.

Unfortunately you appear to have missed the Forum rules on your way in. Please read them now - particularly the bit about not discussing game interaction - and then you will understand why you will get no help and this thread will now be locked.

See you soon with a legitimate question I hope.
