AHK script before/after BigBox?


Recommended Posts

Not from within LaunchBox/BigBox itself.  Your best bet is to open BB using a batch file (or AHK script if you'd prefer).

Example batch file

@echo off
start "" "F:\path_to_run-before_program\my_OPEN_program.exe"

timeout 3

cd "F:\LaunchBox\core"
start /w "" BigBox.exe

start "" "F:\path_to_run-after_program\my_CLOSE_program.exe"
  • Load/Run the 1st program
  • Pause (timeout) for 3 seconds to give it a chance to completely load.
  • Start BigBox.  the "/w" tells it to wait until BigBox exits before continuing. Once BB exits....
  • Load/Run the 2nd program.
