I'm extremely new to using AutoHotkey and I can not figure out how to send multiple lines of commands on a Terraria server. What I'm trying to do is make a buff quick set, for example I would press CTRL+S and the hotkey would send {Enter}/buff name 545{Enter} and go on to the next buff. I got the lines to send in a text file or Steam chat, but it will not work in Terraria.

    Try this with any other game. I believe the steam overlay makes it difficult to do this. Also, try it with a sendkeys program. If you need one let me know and I can link you to one I made (however not for this purpose) – Jon Oct 6 '13 at 23:32
  • If you could send me it that would be much appreciated. I'll hopefully be able to examine and morph it to my needs. – user260369 Oct 7 '13 at 19:34
  • Here you go. Virus scan. You'll probably want to click "Only send once". To send the enter key use {ENTER}. – Jon Oct 7 '13 at 22:13

Terraria polls keys unless you're typing in the chat box. you have to hold the Enter key for 1/fps to open the chat box, type, then hold Enter again for 1/fps to send the message.

#NoEnv  ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.
SendMode Input  ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.
SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir%  ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.

    Send {Enter down}
    Sleep 100
    Send {Enter up}%msg%
    Sleep 100
    Send {Enter down}
    Sleep 100
    Send {Enter up}
    Sleep 100

SendChat("/help 1")
SendChat("/help 2")
SendChat("/help 3")
SendChat("/help 4")
