  • AHK to allow NS2 Alt-Tab...

    Just sharing. There may be a more elegant solution to this problem elsewhere, but I've had good luck with this one for weeks now.

    I use this AutoHotKey script to use Left Alt (voice) and Tab (scoreboard) at the same time in NS2 w/o task switching out of the game. I can press the keys in any sequence and for any duration, getting their expected in-game behavior, w/o task switching out of the client.

    The Beginnerís Guide to Using an AutoHotkey Script explains how to use this. Let me know if you have any questions. My machine just runs the script in the background at all times, so I don't have to think about it when I sit down to play.

    When I want to task switch out of NS2 for any reason, I use Windows-B.

    Code:
    #Persistent
    
    #ifWinActive Natural Selection 2
    {
      LAlt & Tab::Send {Tab Down}
      LAlt & Tab Up::Send {Tab Up}
    }

    Does the sound play when you're "alt tabbed" like in older builds, or does the problem still remain? I changed my voice key to "TAB" and my scoreboard to "B", what I used in NS1. That is, when I was able to play NS2, lol.

    Also, while we're talking about handy and useful programs, there's WinAutomation.

    If any of you guys do any work that requires lots of repetitive steps.

      No sound when switched out. :(
