Excess Posted November 16, 2012 Share Posted November 16, 2012 (edited) What are these tiny hacks?These little programs capture your keyboard (and mouse) input before your computer does and modifies that info to circumvent problems or add features to the game. They (should) work under Windows, and you have to leave them open while you play Don't Starve for them to do their jobs. You can execute them before or after launching Don't Starve, as they are programmed to launch Don't Starve for you if it isn't running already. They won't shut down automatically when you exit Don't Starve though (yet), but you can do so by right-clicking the programs icon in your system bar (by the clock) and choosing "Exit". Rotate the camera with [Q] and [E].Tired of reaching towards the directional keys [←][→] to rotate the view when chopping wood? DownloadRotateWithQ&E.exeMove with QWERTY's [W][A][D] and rotate the view with [A]&[E] on an AZERTY keyboard.You have an AZERTY keyboard but want to use the traditional QUERTY [W][A][D] to move your character?DownloadWASDonAZERTY.exe[*]But how did you made them?I programmed and compiled them using AutoHotkey (with it's rather simple coding language)I created (borrowed from Klei and added text to) the images in Photoshop (with it's lack of native .ICO support) and converted them to icons thanks to ConvertICO.com.I added some attribution and license info to the .EXEs using Resource Hacker.And finally, I shared it with you thanks to DropBox (link with referral).[*]Nice, can you make me one that...?Probably. Tell me what you need done and I'll see if I can do it in my free time.[*]This looks fun, I wanna make one too!It is! Download AutoHotkey and the source files of my hacks (the .AHK files) too get started, and make your granny proud with your awesome programming skills! The coding language is largely documented on the programs website, and if everything else fails, remember: uncle Google is your friend!This is the changelog of the base script so far.1.0 - First compiled EXE.1.1 - It now checks if Don't Starve is running, and if it isn't, it opens it up for you.1.2 - The "hacks" per se will now only work within the Don't Starve game, not everywhere.[*]They don't work for me Tell me your machines specs and operating system and I'll try to figure out whats happening, but I cannot promise anything.[*]Why did you choose this ugly orange for the titles?I DON'T KNOW!
