Minecraft Key Remaps
An Autohotkey script that creates extra, more comfortable keybinds for use in the ridiculously fun indie game Minecraft.
This is an Autohotkey script that creates extra keybinds for use in the ridiculously fun indie game Minecraft. If you are like me, your fingers and hands would begin feeling funny after a few hours of holding down Left-Click, and sometimes you’d let go of the Crouch key just for a second, and then fall off your building-in-progress.

Put the script you want to use in the same directory as your Minecraft.exe (or alternatively, put Minecraft.exe in the same directory as the script). When you start the script, it attempts to load the game at the same time. If you do not do this you will get a “Failed attempt to launch program or document” error.
You also need to bind Crouch to Left Shift in Minecraft. Windows does not seem to like toggling down the default Ctrl key.
Important: You must map Crouch to Left Shift within Minecraft for the crouch toggle to take effect.
You may experience problems typing while the crouch-toggle or walk-toggle is in effect. To regain control, just toggle off that function.
Removed the F-key binds and reassigned them to other keys. This will allow you to use Minecrafts built-in tools (like hiding the HUD and so on). Several familiar binds have changed, so take note. Replaced the Mouse 4-to-Leftclick alternate bind with the more straightforward hold-leftclick function, which is what you’d really be wanting anyway. Also added an ESDF version, whose autowalk function sends E instead of W.
Added home/spawn binds, auto-click, /cdel bind and fixed the Print Screen button to take screenshots using Minecrafts built-in screenshot tool instead of an external one.
Added admin commands.
Stricter checking to ensure that the script only calibrates to the game windows measurements. Previously, for example, running the script and then visiting a website whose title begins with Minecraft would make the script think you were playing the game, and so its binds would interfere with your control within that window.
Added auto-walk (F2) toggle. Made the PrintScreen remap only apply when IrfanView is running — no more accidentally switching the Minecraft window to fullscreen mode and messing up the in-game pointer.
Initial release. Mouse 4, F1, crouch-toggle, and Print Screen remaps are included in initial release.
