maybe something like this? press F1 to pause script, press F1 again to continue. You'll need to edit the WinActive() to the window title of your game.

HotKeySet("{F1}","Pause")
$PauseFlag = False

HotKeySet("-", "Stop") ;script can be stopped by pressing -
Sleep(4000) ;wait 4sec's before starting the cycle, to allow the user to navigate to the correct window

While 1 ;repeat endlessly
    
    If WinActive("Game window title goes here") Then
        Send("{F1}") ;simluate f1 keypress
        Sleep(800) ;wait 1 seconds
    EndIf

WEnd ;repeat

Func Stop() ;to allow the script to stop
    Exit ;same
EndFunc ;same 

Func Pause()
    
    If $PauseFlag = False Then
        $PauseFlag = True
    Else 
        $PauseFlag = False
    EndIf

    While $PauseFlag
        Sleep(100)
    WEnd
    
EndFunc

It's the title in the window. Eg: when you open notepad it says "Untitled - Notepad", that would be the title. Or Calc.exe is "Calculator".

You can use the AutoIT Window Info Tool to get the window title if you aren't sure.

or if you can't find a title, get the PID from ProcessExists() function, and get the handle using This

or any of countless other ways to go about this.
