AutoHotKey Script won't run

Recommended Posts

I am trying to set up an AutoHotKeyScript to run with my FS UAE emulator to control the mouse with my Xbox 360 controller. However the script doesn't run. I have tested the script with AutoHotKey seperately and it works. What am I doing wrong? Below is the script exactly as I have pasted it into the emulator's AutoHotKey tab.

; Increase the following value to make the mouse cursor move faster:
JoyMultiplier = 0.30

; Decrease the following value to require less joystick displacement-from-center
; to start moving the mouse.  However, you may need to calibrate your joystick
; -- ensuring it's properly centered -- to avoid cursor drift. A perfectly tight
; and centered joystick could use a value of 1:
JoyThreshold = 3

; Change the following to true to invert the Y-axis, which causes the mouse to
; move vertically in the direction opposite the stick:
InvertYAxis := false

; Change these values to use joystick button numbers other than 1, 2, and 3 for
; the left, right, and middle mouse buttons.  Available numbers are 1 through 32.
; Use the Joystick Test Script to find out your joystick's numbers more easily.
ButtonLeft = 5
ButtonRight = 2
ButtonMiddle = 9

; If your joystick has a POV control, you can use it as a mouse wheel.  The
; following value is the number of milliseconds between turns of the wheel.
; Decrease it to have the wheel turn faster:
WheelDelay = 250

; If your system has more than one joystick, increase this value to use a joystick
; other than the first:
JoystickNumber = 1

; END OF CONFIG SECTION -- Don't change anything below this point unless you want
; to alter the basic nature of the script.

I dont know if you have copy and pasted the script wrong. You can find a copy of the original script Here

 

The problem with this script is this line:

SetTimer, MouseWheel, %WheelDelay%

Your script doesn't have the label MouseWheel. Either delete that line or change it to:

;SetTimer, MouseWheel, %WheelDelay%

Then it "should" work... maybe.
