Upvoted: Power presets on numpad via AutoHotKey [via /r/EliteDangerous]

I play (non-HOTAS) joystick with keyboard for the majority of commands. I always forget to manage power in battle and have to take my eye off the fight to work out what I want and how to set it as I am too much of a casual to have built up the muscle memory for it yet.

So I have made an AutoHotKey script that uses the NumPad keys to assign power in a logical manner.

This won't interfere with your numpad in any program other than ED.

Any suggestions for the last two remaining preset holes?
