To run Game and Watch exes, I'v tried something simple working:
In the same folder than the games: a ahk script by game:
Run, E:\Nintendo\Game & Watch\Jeux\Banana\Banana.exe
Process, Close, Banana.exe
Anyone knows how to add run Xpadder before launching the game and close Xpadder after closing the game?
Something like Runwait?
Thanks and regards,

Hi doohan and welcolme to the AHK community
Ruwaitis actually a relevant option in this case. Here's a commented example using notepad (as Xpadder):
Hope this helps.
Code: Select all
WM_SYSCOMMAND := "0x112", SC_CLOSE := "0xF060" ; values used with PostMessage below - see WinClose > remarks in the documentation #Persistent ; to keep a script that contains only timers running SetTimer, mySubroutine, -1 ; runs a timer (a negative period like -1 make the timer run only once). The purpose of running such a timer is here to open a new thread and that way prevent the code beneath - if any - from being postponed by the runwait command run, %A_WinDir%\system32\notepad.exe,, Min, PID ; runs notepad and stores its unique process ID (PID) in 'PID'; min will run it minimized ; some code... return ; end of the auto-execute part of the script mySubroutine: ; subroutine executed by the timer WinWait, ahk_pid %PID% ; waits until notepad window exists runwait, "E:\Nintendo\Game & Watch\Jeux\Banana\Banana.exe" PostMessage, %WM_SYSCOMMAND%, %SC_CLOSE%,,, ahk_pid %PID% ; less forcefull than process, close - similar in effect to pressing Alt-F4 or clicking the window's close button in its title bar.
