War2HotKeys - new program for changing hotkeys in the game.

War2HotKeys - new program for changing hotkeys in the game.

.suitable for any keyboard layout and for any War2Combat language;
.has many useful functions;
.and just convenient: when changing hotkeys, working with files (drag & drop, etc)


Video review from FL:

Alternative "drunk" version of review:

Download link (archive password: war2ru)
http://ftp.war2.ru/war2/Utils/Configs & Tweaks/War2HotKeys/War2HotKeys.zip v1.0.1.5


Most questions can be answered in the program's built-in help.

Here some more Questions and Answers:

Q: I have several installed War2, need to copy program to each folder? Is it obligatory to store it in the War2 folder?
A: You can put it anywhere, then just drop on it a shortcut to war2 which hotkeys you plan to change.


Q: How do I change the sound volume?
A: In win7 ++, through the standard volume icon on the taskbar, you can set the volume for a separate program.


Q: When launched, the program may interfere with households or neighbors, announcing that it is "Ready to work" :). What can I do about it?
A: You can prescribe in the program shortcut (= in the command line parameters): "War2HotKeys * *s" to start without sounds.
as well as much more, see the built-in instructions.


Q: My antivirus (or something from the virustotal website) warn me that the program is unsafe
A: This is the so-called false positives: mostly typical for those "antiviruses" that try to impress the user, strenuously creating the appearance of their active and useful work.
(more for advanced: Download the latest version of AutoIt from the official site, compile the script: MsgBox (0, "", "Hello world!"), then upload the resulting file to virustotal for check and [don't] be surprised)
Accordingly, based on the detections on the virustotal for safe programs, you can draw conclusions about the "quality" of some antiviruses or its absence..
If in doubt, do not use the program. Nobody forces.

There is nothing destructive in the program.
Program does not touch anything except its working files and mpq archives,
and even vice versa: protects the user from accidental damage to anything in War2 itself, and help in some restoring.

Here is what to do with the built-in win10 antivirus.

PS: Sorry for bad english.

PPS: Even EQ can use this, although every second message from him made me think about forbidding him(personally) to edit hotkeys.

Really great job, i still have some question and proposition.

Whats exactly the difference between both version? The normal one and the drunk one.

PS: I also see there only one wall, is that wall are for both races?

And i think you guys dont need to show the hotkeys at all... If u8 and some others can keep there hotkeys secret we should be able to do it also.

But overall it's a really nice good job, should just integrate that in the next version of war2ru and we must be good to use that.  :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

LoL, it is about video review versions.  Ok, clarified. At the moment there is only one version of the program.

there only one wall, is that wall are for both races?

Yes, and another things too.

If u8 and some others can keep there hotkeys secret

lol#2 He sent hotkeys there 3 weeks ago

-------


my windows detected

and
I havent got antivirus

is mutually exclusive.

Actually this means that you have a built-in antivirus from m$,
so the paragraph "Q: My antivirus..." is completely relevant to this case

...
list of "antiviruses" which behavior described in post#1:

SecureAge APEX
BitDefenderTheta
Bkav
Cybereason
Cylance
Elastic
FireEye
Ikarus
McAfee-GW-Edition
Qihoo-360
Sangfor Engine Zero

Very "famous" and "trustworthy" isn't it?

And...  in the same place - Micro$oft.
Bravo M$! Got into the company of the same useless progs.

Just need to say thanks to m$ tards in this case.
Their "antivirus" sees that it is autoit - and automatically marks it as a virus. Very "smart" behavior, darn them.



Normal antiviruses may have something like "add to exceptions" option. Maybe m$ have it too.

Better solution is to install some real antivirus, many free antiviruses is much better than trash from m$.

Yo man, I really don't know why did we get both vids here, but still here they are. Lesnik's thoughts are that these two videos contain some different info in each one of them. Maybe he's right, I don't remember the night after the drunk version anyway. But still, in the end, we got ourselves a new cool program to make buildng lumber first for Ragner even faster and easier with its hotkey moved from L to somewhere nearer to his shaky hand.

Ive just try it and i must say, great job guys, it work like a charm, easy to use, fast and powerful choice on the setting.

I really love it, probably one of the best plug in at all time with war2obs.

Great job and like i say, the only thing i would change, is the privacy of the hotkeys, consider that everyone have possibilty to change there hotkeys now, but like a racing cars nobody should know what motors you are using ;)

Thanks alot for that amazing works for the communauty!

"Not possible when you stream, everyone seem thems."

The hotkey hint ( [E] ) is always on the same position during the game, so you can just put a small black sqare there and nothing will be ever seen. Or you can put something else here, just a tiny little smile or pic.

Seriously? Why mouse hover when using the keyboard? Accidental maybe.

Anyway, not worth to hide it, but if you care so much fuckluck offered a good solution.

"Hard but true" way:
1. save your hotkeys to TBL file

2. open it with some hex editor and replace (for keys that you want to hide) capital letters in brackets with * for example:
so
p_[_P_] TRAIN PEASANT
will be
p_[_*_] TRAIN PEASANT
then save modified file

3. open and apply this modified file in Raw mode (menu - unverified hotkeys...)


Btw person watching stream to find out someone's hotkeys instead of thinking over the ones that are convenient for himself, looks blinkered, so it will not help him much.

Why would you want to hide the hotkeys you are using this really puzzle me though, you are streaming so I suppose you are fine with people looking up to you to learn the game why would you want to misslead them. ::)

Anyways yeah you can always put a smiley on that part of your screen but that is really weird behavior no? :sweat:
