Coulda gone better

a macro program would be great, but these seem a pain. I found one that was very simple, Called macro maker i think, But it liked to crash..
I'm looking for something that can record what i do, And repeat it with the same delays.

That's a macro recorder...

Unless the program itself supports the option to have it automatically perform some function in repetition, a macro recorder is exactly the tool required. There are numerous such programs available, so choose the one that suits you best. I typically use paid software, but some freeware options, including AutoHotkey, are highly rated.

Almost there.

That was almost perfect, autohotkey, I've actually ran across this one, Problem with it is that it didn't record the delays of me pressing the keys. I also need it to loop itself.
