I think the FAQ on games should be re-written.
I doubt most noobs know what much of it means.

it should clearly state (not geeky/technically) something like:
Not all games allow AHK to send keys and clicks or receive pixel colors.
But their are some alternatives:
<insert a nice, ultra-noob friendly list of possibly solutions>

if all these fail, it may not be possible for AHK to work with your game.
You cannot use AHK on games with hack and cheat prevention, such as GameGuard and Hackshield.

(that last statement is a lie. most likely possible with so advanced trickery, but those who know the trickery won't resort to the FAQ's on games.)

and instead of saying "... try one of the following ...", it should say "try all of the following". Many noobs often do try JUST ONE of the possible solutions.

Nice idea, see initial version here

Feel free to edit/add

Perhaps add a few links to BF2, Wow, COD, Runescape threads...

I don't have a wiki account and never used (edited) a wiki and don't know how to edit. But I screwed up. GameSpy isn't hack/cheat prevention. I meant to say GameGuard. (edited my post too)

Games sometimes also have hack and cheat prevention measure, such as GameSpy and Hackshield.

Should you take out the word 'also' ?

Just create an account (top right on the page) and click the 'edit' link next to the section (games) you wish to edit, it is not that hard, you can always use the preview version of your edits before you save the changes so if it doesn't look right don't save it. Changed to GameGuard

Some ideas:
- For many games it seems people are better of asking about it on other fora, poker players, multiboxers have their own sites which discuss scripts, perhaps add a few links to those if you know about them (the multibox thread linked from the faq has a few)
- Something about Flash based games

Where can I find the syntax for writing in wiki? It seems that wiki formatting is different from bbcode :?

The cheatsheet covers most of what you need to know: <!-- m -->http://en.wikipedia....edia:Cheatsheet<!-- m -->
Remember you can always use the preview to see how it looks before saving
