@Vlansix Just downloaded and tried this.  This is working very well and making hikaru go into fullscreen all we need now is that it closes its process when we click on escape on the keyboard and it will be an excellent addition as is something that no one has seemed to be able to create a very very well deserved KUDOS and many many thanks to you.

@DOS76 - This should also work for the Gaelco games, or any type of game that is executed from Demul.

@Maddoc1007 - Thanks for the feedback :). Much appreciated. I'll make a separate "Hikaru Exit Key Mapper" in a little bit.

@DOS76 For Gaelco games i use mame except for smashing drive and atvtrack which need the gpudx10 and Demul version 5.8.2 which opens the games in fullscreen but has a weird way of exiting games having to alt+enter first to pause game then the escape key to close the games.

@Vlansix Sorry if i didn't word my post on closing hikaru right, what i meant is that your little program closes its background process when we click on the escape key as demul for hikaru closes its background process when we click on the escape key, i hope this explains it better and thank you for the marvellous programs that you created it is really well appreciated by me and i know will be appreciated by other members as well.

@Maddoc1007 - Wait, is it not closing after maximizing the window? This app shouldn't actually stay open at all after having done that. Or would you want it to make hikaru not be fullscreen once you hit the escape key?

@Vlansix You are right it was my fault i had it to Automatically run after Main application and it wasn't closing its background task, but after reading your post i decided to try automatically Run Before Main Application and it Does indeed close down it task process so it was user error (me) apologies it is working as you intended so no need for you to create a hikaru exit key-mapper your little program is working great, apologies again :(

Rightyo, although it shouldn't matter when it opens... should still close even if it opens after. I'll look into it O.o

@Vlansix You should add these little gems of programs to the download section third party apps and plugins as they are really great programs for the end user and work really fantastic.

@DOS76 Figured how to get Demul 5.8.2 to close for Gaelco games change LaunchBox's auto-hotkey script with this

$Esc::
{
     
    Process, Close, demul.exe
}

When you press escape now for Gaelco games it will close it down
