You need to ensure that ControlMyJoystick sends it’s commands (keystrokes, mouse movements and clicks) to the game and not some other window such as your web browser. You can use Profile App Targets to accomplish this.
Note: Once you have set the target app and enabled targets, all ControlMyJoystick commands will be sent to the target window. For easy testing, open Wordpad and set it as the target.
Why not Notepad?
We recently changed our recommendation from using Notepad to using Wordpad instead for keystroke testing. This is because Notepad has been changing with recent Win10 releases and causing problems. Recent versions of Notepad will change the Notepad titlebar text to prefix it with an *asterisk when it has been edited, which invalidates the CMJ profile target and for some reason eats some keystrokes, often leaving you with a repeating keydown action. Wordpad doesn’t do this, which makes it easier to test.
Setting an App Target
Right-click on the active profile to bring up the popup menu, or double-click on the target name at the bottom of the screen. Select the target program from the list.
Enabling App Targeting
Slide the profile targeting switch to the on position.
