    DosBox, AutoHotkey, and Wing Commander

    I just recently installed WC1 again, and stumbled across the same problem. I was able to somewhat solve this, at least it's working right now for me. It might not for you, as it seems a rather hacky solution. SetTitleMatchMode 2 #IfWinActive DOSBox { ; Set the delay for key presses...
