Playing games that support only a Qwerty keyboard

Playing QWERTY games with an AZERTY keyboard is extremely annoying, here’s a fix.


I have been playing The Walking Dead recently, however, this game does not allow key remapping.

It is extremely annoying, especially when you are trying to use the ZQSD (WASD) keys.

In order to solve this problem, I have set up an AutoHotKey script that remaps ZQSD to their matching WASD keys.

Here’s how I did it:

  1. Download AutoHotKey
    You can download AutoHotKey here.
  2. Make an AutoHotKey script.
    I decided to create a new folder in My Documents called AutoHotKey Scripts.
    In that folder I created a file called Telltale Games.ahk, with the following code in it:

    #NoEnv ; Recommended for performance and compatibility with future AutoHotkey releases.

    SendMode Input ; Recommended for new scripts due to its superior speed and reliability.

    SetWorkingDir %A_ScriptDir% ; Ensures a consistent starting directory.


    #IfWinActive, Telltale Games




  3. Now, every time I want to play The Walking Dead, I just double click that file, now I can use ZQSD. 🙂

Hope this helps! Good luck!
