First I want to explain that this will be no gaming script. I'm doing a script that will enable all shaders, one after another, to take a screenshot of each one. To compare them and so on. Also RetroArch is single player, so it shouldn't matter that much anyway I suppose.

So to my issue: the Send() function doesn't seem to work at all in RetroArch. Send("DOWN") for example does nothing. Is there a way I can somehow force RetroArch to listen to AutoIt's Send() functions?

My guess is that RetroArch listens directly to the hardware on a lower level, so the virtual key events sent by AutoIt are useless. If this is true, your best bet is to use a virtual keyboard driver which emulates a physical keyboard. No idea if such a thing exists in the wild yet.

Also, I don't think RetroArch exposes an interface which UIAutomation could use.

That could be the case. But I hope not. 🤔
