Description

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

Previously, regardless of window focus settings, you could frame advance, savestate, etc. while the TAS Input was the window-of-focus.

In the latest Dev builds, no hotkeys are recognized unless "Hotkeys Require Window Focus" is unchecked. This results in hockey's activating even if another window like Discord is the window-of-focus.

Maybe this isn't a bug per sé, but this behavior has been beneficial in the past.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

[Reproduction steps here]

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

Yes.

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

No.

If the issue isn't present in the latest stable version, which is the first broken version? (You can find the first broken version by bisecting. Windows users can use the tool https://forums.dolphin-emu.org/Thread-green-notice-development-thread-unofficial-dolphin-bisection-tool-for-finding-broken-builds and anyone who is building Dolphin on their own can use git bisect.)

Unsure. I am not aware if this is something I can bisect, or if this is a side-effect of the switch to Qt.

OS: Windows 10 64-bit

Well, technically the feature is working as intended. Hotkeys only function when the render window is in focus. That said, we probably also make the TAS window a valid focus for hotkeys.

Maybe we should have it as always on top too.
