I use mouse and keyboard task automation software very rarely (I remember to have used TinyTask several times) so I am far from being an expert in the area. Some time ago I came upon a new program- Niatask, which I found promising so I decided to share my discovery with the community.
FeaturesCreate a Project that holds multiple Input Scripts. Use the app to Record Mouse and Keyboard activity in real-time which then generates a script file then adds it to a Project.
You can then assign specific Hotkeys for each script which will Play the needed script.
This works with many games and works a lot like software included with gaming and MMO mice
and keyboards. Though instead of using the advanced hardware buttons you can use any keyboard
input to fire a script.
Using the application's interface, you're able to edit a Script's Loop count, Name, and Hotkey
(Or edit file itself which is very basic) Projects have settings
values along with the applications Global Settings.
You can export (save as) specific scripts and import them to the project also.
Scripts are lines of text the application translates into automation.
- Record keystrokes;
- Record mouse activity;
- Record countdown;
- Suspendable hot keys;
- Minimize on script play;
- Minimize on script record;
- Auto-save project;
- Convert to AutoIt code;
- Themes (default and dark);
