XInput XBox Controller AHK with CrayMachine, Baby Toy
  1. Download and install AHK 1.1 or greater
  2. Get Xinput1_3.dll installed if you haven't used an xbox controller with the PC before https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_8-performance/how-to-fix-xinput13dll-missing/b73c5fb8-12b6-493f-bc90-e8cc76fb842b
  3. Put both of the above scripts in a folder on your computer
  4. Run xbox_rand_alpha_vibrate.ahk with Autohotkey.
  5. Plug in a wired xbox 360 controller.
  6. Open http://www.zefrank.com/snm/ in a window.
  7. Click in the center of the orange window and hand the controller to a toddler.

Returns:
If the function succeeds, the return value is ERROR_SUCCESS (zero).

Function: XInput_SetState
Sends data to a connected controller. This function is used to activate the vibration
