Write that script to a text file and save it with the .ahk extension.  (i.e.  test.ahk)

For the game(s) needing this, Edit the game, select Additional Apps, then Add Application.  For the Application Path:, Browse through your LaunchBox folders and select AutoHotkey.exe.  (i.e.  D:\LaunchBox\ThirdParty\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe)

For the Application Command-Line Parameters:, type, between quotes, the full path to your saved .ahk file [from above].

Check the box "Automatically Run Before Main Application".   Then click OK.  Oh.... don't forget to give it an Application Name.

You'll probably need to lengthen the Sleep time.  I'd say start with 10 seconds (10000) just to verify that it works.  Then dial down from there.

 

You may be able to avoid the 'Sleep' altogether if the Window title is ALWAYS going to be "M.U.G.E.N." as in your screenshot.

SetTitleMatchMode, 2
SetKeyDelay, -1, 110

Loop
{
   ifwinactive, M.U.G.E.N.
   {
      Send !{Enter}
      break
   }
}
