13 posts in this topic

probably been answered before, but i can't find it anywhere.

I have an autoit script that i want to use the Send() Command to Send text to a game, but insted of sending the keystrokes fast, it send it with about a 750milisecond per letter..

i Currently have:

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 0)
WinActivate("Game Name")
sleep(500)
Send("{ENTER}")
Send("My Text Here...")

I don`t know if this is any help to you but i have found that the editpaste function works alot faster than Send or ControlSend.

$Title = "Game Name"
$Text = "My Text Here..."
$LF = Chr(10)
$CR = Chr(13)
ControlCommand($Title, "", $EditBox, "EditPaste", $Text &$CR &$LF)

Maybe you can adapt it more...

This should send them instantly, to use it use

$hwnd = WinGetHandle("Game Title")
_SendKeys($hwnd, "{ENTER}keys{ENTER}")
_ArrowKey($hwnd, "up")

And here are the functions

Global Const $VK_OEM_PLUS = 0xBB
Global Const $VK_OEM_MINUS = 0xBD
Global Const $VK_OEM_3 = 0xC0
Global Const $VK_TAB = 0x9
Global Const $VK_ESC = 0x1B
Global Const $VK_F5 = 0x74
Global Const $VK_F12 = 0x7B

Func _SendKeys($hWnd, $keys)
    If $hWnd <= 0 Or StringLen($keys) = 0 Then
        SetError(-1)
        Return False
    EndIf
    $keys = StringUpper($keys)
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "`", Chr($VK_OEM_3))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "~", Chr($VK_OEM_3))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "-", Chr($VK_OEM_MINUS))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "=", Chr($VK_OEM_PLUS))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "{ENTER}", Chr(0xD))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "{TAB}", Chr(0x9))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "{ESC}", Chr($VK_ESC))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "{F5}", Chr($VK_F5))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "{F12}", Chr($VK_F12))
    $keys = StringReplace($keys, "{SHIFT}", "+")
    Local $i, $ret
    Local $shiftdown = False
    For $i = 1 To StringLen($keys)
        If StringMid($keys, $i, 1) = "+" Then
            DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "PostMessage", "hwnd", $hWnd, "int", 0x100, "int", 0x10, "long", 0x002A0001)

i Currently have:

Opt("SendKeyDelay", 0)
WinActivate("Game Name")
sleep(500)
Send("{ENTER}")
Send("My Text Here...")
2 options to set... pay attention to extra note...

SendKeyDelay Alters the the length of the brief pause in between sent keystrokes.

Time in milliseconds to pause (default=5). Sometimes a value of 0 does not work; use 1 instead.

SendKeyDownDelay Alters the length of time a key is held down before released during a keystroke. For applications that take a while to register keypresses (and many games) you may need to raise this value from the default.

Time in milliseconds to pause (default=1).

could you use send keys to a game like CS or unreal

I think I tried it before and it just wouldn't send them the game window. it would send to the desktop. is that an anti-hac or am I doing it wrong

i haven't tried automating either of those games, but typically the anti-hacks consist of trapping the hotkeys to trigger the script, not actually re-directing input. my money would be on the chance that you're doing something incorrectly. do you still have the script?

Time in milliseconds to pause (default=1).

I had to play with these two values to get GTA working. I can't remember the numbers offhand but it was something like under 20 would not register and over 100 caused other issues.

You may need to play around with the values untill you get a combo that the game will accept.

hmm changed the sendkeydelay from 0 to 1 after i made this topic, and seems like it sends a little faster. also changed the sendkeydowndelay and still running alittle slow.

tried the solution posted by cdkid, and got errors on unknown string of "$VK_OEM_3" so temporarily commented those lines out, and ended up with unknown function of _MakeLong..

Sorry, i forgot the _MakeLong function... one second, i'll post it.

Edit

**here it is**

Func _MakeLong($LoWord, $HiWord)
    Return BitOR($HiWord * 0x10000, BitAND($LoWord, 0xFFFF))
EndFunc
