Hotkeys need to be fixed

Post by GosuSheep on Sun Mar 22, 2009 10:47 am

SaMmM,

I suggest going through 1 game and looking at all the hotkeys. Notice that a LOT of them are double (for example: certain units or buildings cannot be created via hotkeys), and a LOT of them are inaccurate (for example: diamond mind is labeled "D" when it's actually "G"). Some units just don't have hotkeys at all...

Also, like most games, vamp speed has a problem with hotkeys on the right side of the keyboard. It is actually very bad for your tendons and wrist to reach over and press something like "L" (to build a slayer) or "BH" (to build a house). I wouldn't necessarily suggest changing all of the hotkeys that already work because people are bound to complain, but I would suggest giving the entire object editor a cleaning.

My advice to you is to use the layer hotkey method for some areas. Say, for example, we have 12 units to be built by a structure. For each unit, their hotkey is the letter that has the same coordinates in the palette as the keys in the top left of the keyboard. Look at the top left of your keyboard. The first 4x3 matrix of letters is:

QWER
ASDF
ZXCV

Make the unit in the top left of the palette be "Q." The next be "W." And so on. Having the hotkeys correspond to these keys DRASTICALLY increases user-friendliness. (Hint: this would be very useful for the last tier of walls).

Please do an EXTREMELY thorough clean-up of these. Vamp-items, vamp-abilities, human-structures, human-units, and human-abilities. It would make the hotkey-oriented players a lot happier.

Btw, I am a very well rounded WE/Jass programmer. I created Sheep Tag. If you need help: e-mail me at tao_archon@yahoo.com

Best Regards,
