How to Type Terminal Commands Faster in Lethal Company

There’s this old and known software called AutoHotkey that we’ve been using to make custom hotkeys for games that don’t natively support them for about two decades.

For Lethal Company usage, I will use the older (v1.1) version that you can locate on the Official AutoHotkey Download page. I’ve tried to deal with the v2.0 version, but I feel it’s too convoluted.

After downloading and installing the software, you will need to create your very own script. To do this, you need to open Notepad on your Windows and create a file. Here’s what my beginner script looks like:

^q:: Send, view monitor SendInput {enter} return  ^w:: Send, switch SendInput {enter} return  ^t:: Send, transmit SendInput {space} return
  • ^q:: means “Ctrl+Q”. If you want to use other modifiers:
    • “^” is for Ctrl
    • “+” is for Shift
    • “!” is for Alt
  • “Send,” means that AutoHotkey will automatically type the text you provide after the space.
  • “SendInput {space} adds a space (useful for the “Transmit” command, so you can immediately start typing after the software executes the command).
  • SendInput {enter} adds the enter key to automatically turn on the view monitor or automatically switch between players.
  • “return” ends the action.

You can’t spam the macro too much, give it a short amount of time before executing it if you are

So basically, in this short script, you have:

  • Ctrl + Q, which types “view monitor” in your stead and enables the monitor on the Terminal.
  • Ctrl + W, which types “switch” for you and hits the enter key.
  • Ctrl + T, which types “transmit ” for you (with the space) and speeds up the messaging action.

Of course, you can modify the script in many ways, and add commands such as “ping (radarname)” or “flash (radarname)”, or even better, if you want to precisely switch view to a specific player, you can make a script with Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, Ctrl+3, and Ctrl+4 for four players in the lobby:

^1:: Send, switch playername1 SendInput {enter} return  ^2:: Send, switch playername2 SendInput {enter} return  ^3:: Send, switch playername3 SendInput {enter} return  ^4:: Send, switch playername4 SendInput {enter} return

You are only limited by your creativity and the software capacity. There is a script that automatically types all letter/number combinations for the turrets, mines, and doors (a0, a1, a2, a3, a4, a5, a6, a7, a8, a9, b1, b2, etc.), but:

  • The length of the script that can crash this page (and the website),
  • It crashes AutoHotkey sometimes,
  • It crashes Lethal Company sometimes,

I won’t be including it in the article. If you are getting third-party scripts, make sure to audit them before activating them. Open them with a text editor and see what they do.

Once you are done with the script creation, save it as a .ahk file (or save it as .txt and then change the extension). Then, double-click the .ahk file to run the script. When you want to close it, you can close the green “H” icon in your Windows Taskbar.

Try out the command in an empty notepad to see if everything works or not. I hope that I’ve helped you speed up your Ship Duty in Lethal Company. Now, you can use the Signal Translator much faster!
