RE: How do i make a simple macro?

What Operating System are you using ?
If it is DOS, you need to make a TSR program which replaces the timer interrupt with a routine that puts an 'A' key value into the keyboard buffer.
If you are in Windows, you can write a timer procedure which sends the WM_KEYDOWN message to the window that is your game.
If you are using linux, I don't know what you would do to be honest - something like the other two OS's.
