What is this thread for?

Do not get confused with "Wish List"-Subforum. Do not post new ahk language requests here. And also do not post here if you need assistance for a problem.

Are you looking for a script, but could not find it? Or do you have a software idea, but can`t program it? Recently, I saw some bored people who do not know what to script. And at same place, there are some wishes what others need. This is a place to collect such wishes and ideas for someone other, who can take it and try to program a solution.

Why not a new thread for every wish?

Instead of creating a new thread for every new idea you search, you can post it here. Others who subscribed this topic will be immediately informed through a new email. If the discussion about that idea goes further than just three or four answers, it would be wise to make a new thread for it and linking. That helps keep it simple at this place.

I decided to list concrete requests, wishes and ideas from this thread and link to them:

Hmm, I have an experimental game in my current ahk project folders. It will be a simple classical arcade shoot em up (like space invaders or more modern). If the game is at a playable stage (no enemy is setup yet), i wil post/link it here too. May be this will never happen. I do not know.

Do anyone knows how to implement a collision system?

And what is a checker game? Just googled and leod, but no concret answer found.

on my wish list when I complete my current projects:

an all in one AHK script manager GUI:

* manage all the scripts that start with Windows - check box
* sort scripts that work in tandem
* timed scripts if inactive list
* script variants run and revert option - input box with script options
* autokill hung or frozen scripts
* scripts that start with specific program when needed, and exit when program closes.
* menu tray and or menu at mousepos script list on/off
* check memory CPU usage when all scripts are running

just an idea :)

If you have a lot of scripts running, then such a manager could help to organize them. Sounds very useful.

I was experimenting with an ini file parser, which acts as a script. I call id IniScript. :D Just an experimentation, ... for fun.

Tuncay: AHK scripts are addictive, once hooked the collection grows +++

I have Firefox only scripts, MPC-HC media only scripts, Photoshop only scripts etc... and a huge main one that runs at startup (breaking it up into smaller manageable bits)

thought of the project name:
"AHK control panel" or "AHK central"

experimentation is fun!!!!!

@Tuncay: about Collision searsh in this forum I do some post, my experience is to use windows API for fast result, like my Ahkroid game...
<!-- m -->http://www.autohotke...pic.php?t=53232<!-- m -->
<!-- m -->http://www.autohotke...pic.php?t=59381<!-- m -->
it's just an advice but to creat a system of collision is bad with ahk and very complicated and huge, so use win API (GDI):
PtInRect, PtInRegion, RectInRegion, CombineRgn(if 2 regions can to create a new region , then collision (unions) )

I'm bored too :(

I decided to list concrete wishes and ideas from this thread at first post and link to them.

Zaelia thx for your answer. I am very impressed by your game!
But this is too much for me for now. I never worked with complex DLL calls. May be I ll look into it, but just for fun. Its too complicated for me, as you wrote.

Then what type of game could be made easily with Ahk?

No problem :) However if one day you want to learn about collision, try with <!-- m -->http://www.autohotke...pic.php?t=47894<!-- m -->

go to ahk german forum too, they are a 3D game :)
So the most easiest game is 2D turn per turn

Actually, I made a half game of Checkers. I got the board, the movement and everything down pat. I just got bored of it and didn't finish it. The only thing that's missing is actually winning and removing the other player's pieces.

I need a... kinda help. In two ways.

1. I need a script to change doublepress of up arrow into p button. Yes i read about RapidButton but there are problems. I can't make a RapidHotButton.ahk that works. If i just paste the code from 1st post of that thread i get an error message because of "invalid hot key". Secondly I didn't get how to send buttonpress, not the simbol or action.

2. Need a script that allows to use a spacebar with P+". I haven't seen any game that allows me to. As i understood even if i make a working script to change say W+D+space to P+"+space spacebar still won't work.

Or U can tell just what to search.

hmm, I would be interested in any photoshop scripts, have you been posting them in the "Scripts and Functions" section?

Sorry if I have to say this, but your request do not fit into this thread. I suggest to make a new thread in Ask for Help section. Here, I was more thinking of theoretical ideas, and not a problem.
