    Question Question: WC3 Custom Keys

    hello everyone !

    I'm not a new player with Blizzards games, but I have a question about WC3 I couldn't really find an answer for. I've seen there is an option for using Cutom Keys and there's a CustomKeyInfo.txt that is poorly explained. Hope I could find help here.

    There is a custom keys option, and as a I lefty I find it uncomforable that all the commands for attack and skills are located at the left side of the keyboard [A,S,E,R,T,V,F] I'm sure its been very comfortable for right hands but not for me. And I was wondering if it possible to change them wide-scale like I would want, not for every specific unit.

    For example, a lefty would find this very comforble :
    Attack-Stop-Hold-Patrol [I,O,P,{]
    Skills 1,2,3,4 [J,K,L,;]

    If anyone got the idea how this is done and is willing to share I'll be grateful. Thank you for reading.

    Go into your Wc3 folder.
    Create CustomKey.txt
    Then write in the keys you want to use like this:
    Code:
    //Move
    [CmdMove]
    Tip=Move
    Hotkey=M
    ( In your Wc3 folder should also be a CostomKeySample which will help you creating the customkeys )
    Make sure to activate "Use customized Hotkeys" in Wc3 - Gameplay - option :>

    Ok, that works, but about the skills especially hero skills, and custom maps heros, it would be impossible to change all of those. I've tried something like this but its no good and the Sample has nothing about this. Would you know any way to custom them like this?


    //Buttonpos=0,2
    Tip=First Skill
    Hotkey=J

    //Buttonpos=1,2
    Tip=Second Skill
    Hotkey=K

    //Buttonpos=2,2
    Tip=Third Skill
    Hotkey=L

    //Buttonpos=3,2
    Tip=Ultimate Skill
    Hotkey=:

    it is possible to set up customkeys for ladder and dota, but custommaps in general is only possible with programs which move your mouse (which isnt 100% reliable)

    if you want a customkeys for ladder and dota, make a detailed list like:
    spells on q w e r
    a = attack, hold position = s
    and whatever....
    then I could create you one with warkeys.
    and you can always post names of programs you like

    ^using CHROME now
