Maybe a & Space::Send {Left} is sufficent. According to the documentation on remappings, the remapping a::b causes this,

Code: [Select all] [Download] GeSHi © Codebox Plus

*a::
SetKeyDelay -1 ; If the destination key is a mouse button, SetMouseDelay is used instead.
Send {Blind}{b DownTemp} ; DownTemp is like Down except that other Send commands in the script won't assume "b" should stay down during their Send.
return

*a up::
SetKeyDelay -1 ; See note below for why press-duration is not specified with either of these SetKeyDelays.
Send {Blind}{b Up}
return


and since custom combination hotkeys do not accept the wildcard *, you get the error. From custom combination hotkeys documentation
Unlike a normal hotkey, custom combinations act as though they have the wildcard (*) modifier by default.

To mimic the remap, you can try,

a & space::
SetKeyDelay -1
Send {Blind}{left DownTemp}
return

a & space up::
SetKeyDelay -1
Send {Blind}{left Up}
return

Good luck.

Custom combination hotkeys (a & b) and remapping (a::b) are mutually-exclusive; you cannot combine them. This is by design.

I realized that it was trivial to support custom combinations for remapping by simply omitting * when space-&-space is detected, so v1.1.27.01 will support it.

However, I think the OP's hotkeys are backwards. They are very awkward to activate, since you must press and hold a/d/w before space. If you swap them around (Space & a::), it is easy to use a/d/w as arrow keys while holding Space.
