Title: War2HotKeys - new program for changing hotkeys in the game.
Post by: Available on October 11, 2020, 08:36:34 PM
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:

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. (http://forum.war2.ru/index.php/topic,5968.msg92700.html#msg92700)

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.

It is just so freaking cool you guys are legends  :wc2:

The triggers thing and that are going to be permanent upgrades to the game and that is going to even further make it awesome for everyone for the many years to come!
You guys are wonderful to a point that there are no ways to say!!!  :hug:

I probably wont change my own hotkeys because I am a lazy habbit plagued potatoe but this is totally freaking awesome!  :newthumbsup:
Lesnik and Mistral we are not worthy thank you so much for what you are doing to war2 <3 <3 <3

Edit: PS the drunk version is the best version LOL

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:

So why we dont see U8 hotkeys, and people like him who have edited mpq?

You telling me im weird, but when u8 did it for the last 10 years it's all good?

Title: Re: War2HotKeys - new program for changing hotkeys in the game.
Post by: Delete ME NOW! on October 12, 2020, 03:39:56 PM
We should be able to customize ur ''control '' keys with that plug in like u8 can do with the mpq, but we can't, but hey, it's ok, i appreciate the effort, better then nothing  :kissing_heart:
Title: Re: War2HotKeys - new program for changing hotkeys in the game.
Post by: Cel on October 12, 2020, 05:27:24 PM
I mean u8 does not hide it and if anyone ask him he gladly sends his mpq.
Hell he even asked me if I wanted his mpq I declined because I don't care but he is not like that no.
And I saw him propose to a random stranger on his twitch chat to send him his custom hotkeys and his mpq so idk what you did that made him not want to send it to you but he is not hiding  ;)

Anyways I am not saying you have no right to keep your hotkeys and stuff for yourself I just don't see how it would really benefit you that is all, but hey I am not judging here you are free to do what you want its just a simple thought nothing more. :slight_smile:

He gladly send his mpq Hhahahah.....

First of all, who the hell will waste his time to download super special software to open a mpq and watch his hotkeys.. Nobody bro!

Second of all, he can make 2 differents mpq and send the one he really want, bro ur so naiv, he dont show his hotkeys, nobody have to do it then.

What he did for the last 10 years have absolutly been hiding his hotkeys ''plus'' hacking his entire mpq, you just literrally said publictly that u8 have weird behavior, congratulation.

For my own part, i dont have bad behavior, i have justice, same BEHAVIOR.

Anyway, i think hotkeys should be a personal information for everyone, what we want here is to make everyone being able to do there personal cuztomize hotkeys, but at the end, those hotkeys are a kind of personal strategie, peoples dont have to show them at all, peoples can share it if they want, but nobody should be force to show them.

So i think when the final version would be release on the war2ru patch 2.7, those informations should be hide.

Post by: Cel on October 12, 2020, 07:36:58 PM
I mean sure yeah you are right people should not be forced to I agree, I am not denying that its fine if people dont want to share their stuff like stream and shit I have nothing against it.
It just puzzled me a bit why would someone be willing to show litterally everything that he does on stream (all the strats and the way he plays) but hide that tiny kinda irrelevant piece of information out of all the things he is willing to give out. :rofl:

But hey man if that is the one thing you dont want to show I do not judge at all it is very much your own personal preference and choice  :thumbsup:

Just lol... it is karma: what you need is unavailable for you.

But, for some reason, new version even has LESS false positives on virustotal.

I can make the program working as intended, although I am sorely short of time,
but I can’t do so that all stupid antiviruses like the program, sorry.

Program universal for all languages, so these letters can be everywhere without much sense... uncomfortable to read.
"BUILD ST[A]BLES" to "BUILD ST[Q]BLES"/"BUILD [Q]STABLES"? lol, never. "[Q] BUILD STABLES" - is much better.

Or it is about items placement? it's ok already: all present in one view, w/o any scrolling or hundreds of windows to change one key

I run it without any anti virus, ur software just dosent work at all, where you try to open it it say error and nothing happen other then that.

Post by: Cel on October 13, 2020, 07:35:33 AM
I have not downloaded it yet but man the program looks freaking gorgeous, there is sound and the UI is looking really great there was an incredible amount of love and dedication put into it you can really tell this was really thought through.

I mean this is really looking professional, it may take time for antiviruses to add the exception for its signature to their data bases but to speed up the process once we have a final version we can send it to the most famous antiviruses known labs for analysis so they review it and clear it faster.

That aside I think the shortcut between brackets at the beginning of the line is the smartest and most portable move since it is very easy to look up and it also allows players to use letters that were not even present in the tooltips to begin with.

Now sure you could add a button for the program to not apply changes to the tooltips for people that would want that but as it is right now it is really amazingly flawless and very impressive all the little thoughts that went into making that thing are just incredible.

I really am surprised and honestly it makes me want to do more for the community myself, thank you Lesnik you really are a legend!

When I see that much attention to details and love put into a project like this it just makes me want to believe in people!
You guys that put that much passion and skills into making these new creative things for everyone and for your hobby are a gift to this unworthy earth and you deserve to be told as much! Thank you!

where you try to open it it say error and nothing happen

I have lost my extrasensory abilities, so it would be interesting to know what kind of "error" it is: its text, how it looks, at what stage of loading it takes place.

You can hold a key(ctrl, for example) while program starting, to see at what stage the error occured.

But it still looks as built-in win10 antivirus fks the brain. :(

ps: just checked on win10, win7 and xp - all ok

yes groups like in game where you click on buldings
Group for tanker,destroyer,transport,sub,battleship + turtle,jugg floating aroud = no room to place it well
So the "water" elements together is good enough.

I'll be happy to look at another(but not ugly please) version of elements arrangement where everything fits as in the existing version :)

Well you guys should be careful downloading this, it's look like this software is relate to the main server of war2 ru, when you download and install it, the software can reconize ur account on the server and that mean this software is connected to the server mean there an acces between the relate software and ur internet connection.

When i download that software the first time, it was working like a charm, and like all the time, i did goes to sleep and let my computer open and all my softwares.

When i wake up this morning, that hotkeys software did close by himself and my computer was full of alerts for updates on windows. My fire wall was not active anymore and had some alert about smart screen.

Try to open back the hotkeys software but dint want to open anymore and tell me there was an error... try to redownload nothing was working... Try to restart my computer and some auto update start alone.... Now nothing works anymore for some mysterious reason...

It's seem there alot of probleme with everything in general, not smell good, be careful, look like someone really hack me while i was sleeping, Cel u8 and all those guys seem really weird.

BE CAREFUL!

Well you guys should be careful downloading this, it's look like this software is relate to the main server of war2 ru, when you download and install it, the software can reconize ur account on the server and that mean this software is connected to the server mean there an acces between the relate software and ur internet connection.

When i download that software the first time, it was working like a charm, and like all the time, i did goes to sleep and let my computer open and all my softwares.

When i wake up this morning, that hotkeys software did close by himself and my computer was full of alerts for updates on windows. My fire wall was not active anymore and had some alert about smart screen.

Try to open back the hotkeys software but dint want to open anymore and tell me there was an error... try to redownload nothing was working... Try to restart my computer and some auto update start alone.... Now nothing works anymore for some mysterious reason...

It's seem there alot of probleme with everything in general, not smell good, be careful, look like someone really hack me while i was sleeping, Cel u8 and all those guys seem really weird.

BE CAREFUL!

Wow that sounds really bad, first things first: here is what you should look at from what you described that is what I would do:

Open windows update manager look at the updates that were installed recently and check if everything was successfully installed (when a program is running it may be causing problems when installing updates they are marked as failed in that case). If you still have a problem everytime windows updates it saves previous state and should allow you to rollback if it is broken you want to do that then look at the updates that it installed and try to find which one causes the error.

Also you probably should disable auto-update and ask your computer to always let you check first what update you want to install so you can check and make sure you are doing that at a time of your convenience.

For checking update it is tedious but if you do it as they come it becomes a habit basically you want to select the update iddentifier and look it up on internet to know what kind of update it is. If you were running a windows 7 or 8 at the time they released 10 you know very well that not all updates even important ones should be installed without your consent ;-)

Have you had a look before you bluntly accuse people of hacking?
You should make sure it is not just your windows update doing what windows update does best also it would help narrowing where the problem came from :sweat:

One time windows update just completely crashed my pc because I had visual studio compiling when it did its update as I had forgotten to force him to ask me before updating (like everyone should). It was so bad I had to run windows in command lines to fix it. Especially since that windows 10 shit tried to install itself on my pc lol...

Windows update always makes a temporary save before applying updates so if it broke you can rollback, also it has a historic of installation you want to check that up to see what was installed exactly (you can look up the IDS on microsoft's web site to see what is inside the updates).

Anyways if you think that you have been hacked you should really be looking into it. Run all the spybots adawares etc...

Also @Lesnik does your program really connect to internet? If you want to get user name I think it is already saved locally right? I am asking that because depending on how and what library you linked to have internet requests your program may be a lot more likely to trigger false positives. So if you do not really really need internet for your program to work it may be actually very beneficial to avoid linking with internet libraries altogether :)

What if you are wrong then?
What if it really was just windows update?

What if you are just be throwing dirt at a person that spent hours making a software for you and others for free right now?

At least try to make it look like you care and are willing to do what it takes to verify these are not just baseless accusations.

So please When you get the time:

Check that windows update historic, and make sure it is not just a library that got fucked up or updated that the program uses...

That would stop the program from working exactly the way you described it, and then it wouldnt work anymore yes.

Solution if it is the issue here: Rollback the update check if the program works, close it make sure the program is not running (task manager) run the update again with no unnecessary programs running and see if it works after the update this time.

Edit: And if you want to avoid problems in the future disable Windows Update automatic updates. You can run your updates manually every week and make sure no programs are running when you do them as well as being able to verify what windows wants to install on your PC behind your back. :P

The child has grown, the mind has not increased

Eq, why you behave like the last asshole always?
Could you stop being an idiot? PLEASE.

my computer was full of alerts for updates on windows
What a bs... win10 is miraculously updated? Omg, what a "new" behavior for win10, isn't it?
I hate that kind of updates at all.

So better to blame m$ for:
1. force updating your their win10.
2. dumb built-in antivirus with smartdumbscreen

yes my hacks finally works!
Good, now we can edit his mpq a bit more, to delete hotkey for "Lumber first" :)

Dont make jokes like that he may take your seriously
It would be too easy.



You can run your updates manually every week
Really? as i know win10 can install some shit every time they(m$) want it, completely ignoring the needs of the user,
there is a way to disable win10 updates, but it hard enough even for normal user, not to mention stupid one.

And i think Eq not reading your posts, or just ignoring because can't uderstand :)
"A wise man can learn more from a foolish question than a fool can learn from a wise answer."
"It was idle ... to get between a fool and his folly..."


Therefore, my version of what happened there:
1. win10 built-in "antivirus" blocking the program for a reason known only to them (but as i told they see that is autoit, and start crying)
2. win10 can runs his stupid updates anytime - this is problem win10 users only,
3. Eq too low iq (hmm.. rhyme, maybe it is no accident) to sort out this situation.

But I still hope he not so dumb as it looks...


it is already saved locally right?
Yes, the program does NOT connect to the Internet in any way, all it does is use ITS temporary files + save files + modifies War2Patch.mpq. That's all.

BTW, I'm not a programmer at all, at least in the modern sense of the word.
(here Eq appears and say i'm hacker.. just wait a little :) )

W10 will update system even if user disable update

I open it one time, then i cant do it again till i reboot and download, windows still think is virus and remove it after i trun off

your program may be a lot more likely to trigger false positives

As i told before (1st post) M$ "antivirus" Got into the company of the same useless progs on virustotal.
Their "antivirus" sees that it is autoit - and automatically marks it as a virus. Very "smart" behavior, darn them.

How to check it is also written in 1st post, for advanced users/programmers:
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... about around 10 false positives
All _real_ antiviruses show that everything is ok with the file.

I repeat about m$ defender/etc for win10 users:

For those who want to use program and continue to use the built-in antivirus from m$, here is the way
To Add Exclusions for Windows Defender in Windows 10 (https://winaero.com/exclusions-windows-defender-windows-10), same present even on  M$ site (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/add-an-exclusion-to-windows-security-811816c0-4dfd-af4a-47e4-c301afe13b26)

!NOTE: do NOT add _folders_ to exclusions! this is exactly the thing that can make your computer more vulnerable.

Better way is to add _process_ to exclusions (must remove all "blocking-deleting" behavior),
adding _exe_ might still leave some questions, as i think.
Can't check for sure, because i don't use this useless "antivirus".


For those who trust m$, even when they screwed up hard, just not use program at all. Nobody forces.

Or they can run it once modify their shortcuts then delete program/uninstall if they fear it may do stupid stuff in their back, the changes will stay applied right? :rofl:

I personally do not run windows 10 but I haven't taken the time to download/try it yet but once I do I will be able to tell for windows7 an 8.1.

Do you have the sources on a github somewhere @Available  :innocent:?
If you do or are not against using a github and If you are willing to share them with me, I could try and take some of my spare time (though probably not in a very near future) to see if I can help with them false positive detections.

Basically I would just run through the linked libraries to see which ones are really necessary/used and if we can add limitating compilation flags to clearly specify to the OS the reach of the program on the system (Depending on what library/language you used and their age, these flags can really tell a lot to the OS on what the program may be able to do and clear it completely).

This program is such a great idea and it look sooo damn good from what I saw in these videos that it would be really nice if we manage to have it on the website without spooking people off if we can avoid it  :D
Although old stupid people like me probably do not really feel like changing their shortcuts, new players coming in the server will probably ALL want to do that  :rofl:

Such a great feature to have this is going to help the server grow soooo much and this will be very very popular amongst new players I can already tell <3

EDIT :

Rofl I just saw you used AutoIt, I never used that thing but they may have the same kind of flags especially since it is a very recent language! I will look into what I can find to try and help though I am more into C C++ C# but I assume they have these flags somewhere especially since it is a modern framework :-)

I have looked a little into it and it seems because of the compressor and the compiler used to compile the thing:
https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/34658-are-my-autoit-exes-really-infected/ (https://www.autoitscript.com/forum/topic/34658-are-my-autoit-exes-really-infected/)

Nothing new under the sun when it comes to the solution we will have to do the same as usual send the file to all these virus labs for clearance (it works a lot better if you send the sources alongside but that only you can do for now). I remember I did it for the 4.3 version of combat and it was cleared ever since so it does not hurt to try :-)

One other solution that seems to work for half the time is to use a very low compression rate to minimize the effect of the compressor on the signature.

Post by: Available on October 16, 2020, 10:00:14 AM
the changes will stay applied right?
Of course it is: file stat_txt.tbl stays into war2patch.mpq archive.

github
lol, no))
I sent sources to iL, he says that they are not as bad as I think  :slight_smile:
Or I can sent it to you directly if you join vk, but not for others persons please.


it is a modern framework
lol, it's very old compared to new stuffs. But too many hackers have used it. Because of this, the authors even removed some features.

One other solution that seems to work for half the time is to use a very low compression rate to minimize the effect of the compressor on the signature.
it does NOT use pecompact/upx etc compression already, for this very reason.

The problem with lazy "antiviruses", they just see "autoit" and it's like a red rag for a bull, and they not doing any proper checking.
I'm tired of "fighting windmills" like this.

Try to compile the "Hello World" example for the virustotal, it's really easy.

Maybe later really need to send program and sources at least to m$, because most peoples uses w10, but idk where to send it.
ps, just for lol.
After getting the sources, they'll say: Your source code is total bullshit, go program on our the best "C#Java.net", to hell that  :-\

I dont think so normal users like eq should do that, since he dont know what he will do that, and what will happen after that

It work prople cant close that program, or just reboot system and download onemore time from web and it will work again

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

and here:
Added version 1.0.0.1 with "paranoid applying mode".
Implemented useless feature(just because i can, and still remember enough in sources, not because it is useful), for one dumb person who lazy to even tweak his OBS studio or whatever he uses.
And got such nonsense in return.

Because I forgot:
"That the only way to talk to a fool was to ignore him" and
"Doing good to fools is like pouring water into the sea".



bb eq, welcome to the ignore list.
I still hope you have at least a little brain left to apologize to iL, me and everyone you unjustly accused on the forum.

20201016: v1001 (around 256k sources) has even fewer false positives than "Hello World" (one line and 30 bytes).

20201018: v1002 correct stats for built-in game.

20201027: v1003 some tweaks + fixed bugs that added in 1001, hopefully not added more than fixed.

20201112: v1015 archive is now passworded: "war2ru"
