Getting a AHK file to work on a specific steam game

Hi all, Just setup a new arcade cabinet. I want to play Sine Mora in my steam collection. I have been manually running an AHK file to remap my keys, How do I get launchbox to run this ahk just for this one game and then close it once I exit? Any help great. SteSmile

I thought the Steam Controller is supposed to automatically do this through Big Picture mode or something? Through LaunchBox though, yea I can see how that might be hard. In this case you may need to use a controller that doesn't simulate the keyboard, like a PS4 or Xbox One controller. I am unsure how easy this might be to pull off with the Steam Controller. You should also be able to close the game with the close buttons in the menu, so is the AHK script even required?

Sorry sentai brad. I think you have misunderstood. I am using an arcade stick and ipac keyboard encoder . Sine Mora doesn't let you change keys within the actual game which really sucks so an ahk needs to be ran before the game starts to remap keys from ipac default which is mame to what required in the game.Wink

Ah, ok. Steam collection, I don't know why I read Steam Controller. The I apologize! I totally did misunderstand. You might need to get AHK Standalone for this, and I don't know what script would help you in this case. Jason might be able to shed some more light on this so I'll forward this to him.

Hi @nutter1980, unfortunately there's no way to run an AutoHotkey script for a single game, currently. The AutoHotkey stuff currently only works on a per-emulator basis. Not sure if we have a ticket for this on Bitbucket or not, but feel free to create one so we can get that implemented eventually. Sorry for the trouble.

Thanks Jason, I am new here and not sure where to log this as a ticket. Would you point me in the right direction. This would be a really helpful feature to have for games that dont allow you to change key config.
