Do any of you use autohotkey for this game? If not I recommend it for all games and work. It operates by its own scripting language and it can manipulate your machine and mouse in awesome ways.
Just a few examples of in game uses:
When i press control -1 is fires all weapons until i turn off caps lock
same for control 2 except all phaser and control-3 is all canons
when i press delete, it balances shields every 3 seconds until i turn off insert mode
etc etc. It is phenomenal
for work, in case any of you are interested,
I can open any component of outlook, start new emails, start emails to specific people and mailing lists all without outlook even the active window
