[TUTO] ENGLISH - How to use AutoHotKey & Nomousey software to hide mouse cursor during gameplay


Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm going to make this a quick and simple tutorial in ENGLISH as there's really not much to talk about, but a lot of people have been asking me for scripts and such to use AutoHotKey (AHK) & Nomousey (NM) especially for lightgun games where the mouse is used to emulate the crosshair pointer and the intention is to hide it, so thought I'll make a short write-up on how to obtain, create and use this very useful piece of software. I'm no expert but this is what others on this forum have taught me and I am now sharing what little I know with others.


In summary, what we are doing is creating an auto-executing hotkey to active NoMousey software to hide the mouse cursor and then disabling it after use. The two softwares will work together for this.


AutoHotKey Software: https://www.autohotkey.com/download/

NoMouseySoftware: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=143370.0;attach=322444 (I cannot find an active website supporting it so please provide if any)

1. Install AutoHotKey, have nomousy.exe available (nomousy.exe /hide to HIDE, and run nomousy.exe to UNHIDE)

2. Create new folder, right-click in blank space NEW > AutoHotKey Script

3. Input below quote and save in notepad then save

4. Right-click on script file and choose Compile Script

5. Test script then use

run, nomousy.exe /hide ;
run, TeknoParrotUi.exe --profile=SDR.xml ,, Min;

    run, nomousy.exe


Attached are some examples of pre-made scripts for some lightgun games that use these two softwares..




Again, I'm no expert so if you have any further suggestions or comments feel free to share with others here.
