Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
what if your best such like addict friend comes around and needs a quick fix? (it's not as if they're illegal.)
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
My Google-fu is failing me. The problem (I think) is easy to describe, but not to Google, apparently.
Does anyone know of a really simple tool that can simulate a key being held down...and--this is important in this context--can easily be toggled on and off?
My reason for asking: I have a game that often requires me to walk in what is essentially a straight line in some direction for quite some distance, and I have to press and hold down the 'walk' button ("W" in this case; the game's using the standard "WASD" arrangement) for minutes at a time. This often gets tedious, and so every once in a while I take a small but heavy object and try to balance it carefully on the key that needs to be held down...then while my character is moving on his own, I can do something else on another computer I have sitting next to me for a moment or two.
The problem is the "carefully balancing the object on the key" part. So I'm looking for a software solution. Ideally a one-key toggle, as in, "when I press this key (or key combination), simulate holding down this other button"...then press it again to "release" the button.
Of course I don't want something that needs me to alt-tab out of the game and back.
This is totally a first-world problem...but a solution would help remove one of the more tedious elements of this game. After all, I play to take some drudgery out of my life, not add to it...
