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.
