Ghostrunner: How to Jump with the Mousewheel

You’re normally hopping around FPS games with the Mousewheel and were shocked to find out that Ghostrunner doesn’t let you do that? Well here is a workaround using AutoHotkey that gets you taking to the skies like you’re used to.

 

What is AutoHotkey?
TLDR: Google “AutoHotkey” and install it, then proceed to the next step.

AutoHotkey is a free and open-source custom scripting language for Microsoft Windows, initially aimed at providing easy keyboard shortcuts or hotkeys, fast macro-creation and software automation that allows users of most levels of computer skill to automate repetitive tasks in any Windows application. User interfaces can easily be extended or modified by AutoHotkey (for example, overriding the default Windows control key commands with their Emacs equivalents). The AutoHotkey installation includes its own extensive help file, and web-based documentation is also available.

You need to download and install AutoHotkey to be able to run the script below.

I installed AutoHotkey, what’s next?
Next is the script, simply copy the following text into your text editor of choice and save it as a file with an “.ahk” extension.
WheelUp::Send,{Space}
WheelDown::Send,{Space}
Then double-click the .ahk file to run the script.

What does it do exactly?
As you may have guessed, the script will make both your MouseWheelUp and MouseWheelDown act as the Spacebar. This won’t overwrite what the Mousewheel normally does, it simply adds Spacebar inputs on top. Ghostrunner doesn’t use the Mousewheel for anything so this behavior is fine there, but the script will be very disruptive when doing pretty much anything else.
Make sure to stop the script when you’re not playing the game by ‘Exit’ing it using the Tray Icon.

I’ve heard bad things about scripting, can I be banned for this?
Almost certainly not. This is very light scripting and wouldn’t ordinarily cause problems in even the strictest competitive online games. Running a more powerful script that allows you to gain some type of advantage would constitute a bannable offense in most online games, but generally even the most extreme forms of cheating go unpunished in single player games. Using this script in Ghostrunner should be perfectly safe.
