    How exactly does Miqobot send a key in the background to the game? I’m trying to mess around/understand how it works but i always need the game to be in focus if i use something like AHK vs Miqo

    Miqobot emulates keystrokes by sending standard WinAPI messages to the game client, such as WM_KEYDOWN and WM_KEYUP. These are the same messages that are generated by Windows when you press a key on the keyboard.

    Semi-related question because I’m very curious, do mouse events work the same way? (in general, of course; I know Miqo doesn’t do mouse) i.e. Could one send a “left mouse button down/up @ position x,y in window z” message? Or would that affect the actual cursor location? 🙂
