Activ window

Post by RallyHarry » Sun Dec 30, 2018 3:35 am

XMBC Version: 2.17
Windows Version: w10
Mouse Information (brand/model):
Computer Information:
Did the problem occur after an upgrade of XMBC or Windows?: no
How long have you used XMBC?: a week
What language and keyboard layout do you use in Windows?: swedish

Clear description of the problem:
Hi, I play Tibia. I use simkey(7 sticky). My problem is when i want to use firefox(surfing) while my sticky key working for me (making Runes). As soon as I move the mouse outside the tibia window simkey(7) stop to work.
Is it a way to let it work while i use the computer to other things?
Otherwise its working perfect.

In Windows, keys that you press go into the keyboard buffer which is then sent to/taken by the active window (the one with keyboard focus). This is the same with SimKeys so unfortunately, not its not possible as your game window is no longer the active window.

There is a small/tiny chance that the game may respond directly to WM_CHAR messages so you could try autohotkey or something to send those WM_CHAR messages while the window is not active (XMBC itself can't do this at the moment), but I very much doubt it will work (especially in a game)!
