Blamestar's hotkey tool

Downloads

System requirements

To use this program you need at least Windows 2000 or Windows XP. On Windows 95, 98 or ME the program will ultimately crash or at least fail to do what it's supposed to do. It has not been tested on Windows Vista (^^)

The word "beta"

'Beta' means that a program is still being developed. Features may be added or removed. It does not mean that you are facing is a bugged, unusable version. Generally I test my programs kinda thoroughly before release.

However this is not a guarantee for bug free versions. So if you still find a bug, please tell me and help me fix it as soon as possible. You can find my e-mail address on my contact page.

Older versions

Changes in this version

  • Added a hotkey to show or hide the health bars above the units, so that you don't have to hold ALT all the time.
  • You can now select a custom sample image in the dialog that lets you select a position for a mouse click.
  • Reworked the user interface of the profile editor.
  • First signs of a user interface for the main window. (^^)
  • Improved the feature that automatically disables the program when Warcraft is minimized.
  • Fixed a few translations errors.

Changes in this version

  • Fixed the incompatibility with Xfire!
  • Improved the support for hotkeys on the mouse buttons 4 and 5 (history back and forward buttons). This hasn't been tested extensively.
  • The program is automatically disabled, when you minimize Warcraft III and reactivated if you maximize it again.
  • Major changes in the internal program mechanics.
  • Additional keys can be used as hotkeys. (also see next)
  • Added a profile that disables the windows keys and Alt+Q, so that you won't be accidentially thrown out of Warcraft.
  • Profiles for the french keyboard layout (AZERTY) are now included in the download by default.
  • Fixed a small bug in the profile editor.
  • When you try to activate the program while no profiles are loaded, you'll get a note now.
  • Certainly there are some more small things that I don't have in mind right now...

Changes in this version

  • Fixed a bug with the profile editor not correctly saving hotkeys that trigger a keystroke.

Changes in this version

  • When you started the program, the hotkeys were initially activated, thought the program stated that they were not. This has been fixed.
  • You can now use the additional mouse buttons as hotkeys. For example the Logitech MX500 and MX510 have these keys.
  • Added an options dialog window so that you can now adjust the program better to your PC.
  • Added a profile editor. You no longer need a degree in computer science to create your own hotkeys. ;)
  • Some other minor changes.

Changes in this version

  • Profiles are now stored in a sub directory in the program directory.
  • Supports multiple profile files for easier sharing of profiles.
  • Made hotkey profiles "modular". You can now have different profiles at a time activated. E.g. one for inventory keys and one for commands.
  • Added profiles for enabling and disabling autocast of spells. If you have this profile loaded, press SHIFT and the key associated with the spell to activate or deactivate it's autocast.
  • Hotkeys can now trigger keystrokes in addition to mouse clicks. (see next point)
  • The inventory hotkeys are now faster because they send the numpad keys directly to Warcraft instead of clicking the inventory slot. Just like in Lesco's Warcraft Toolkit.
  • You can now trigger a double click with a hotkey. (not very useful for Warcraft players, but someone requested this)
  • Increased the standard delay for mouse clicks to 35 milliseconds.

Changes in this version

  • You can now switch profiles directly in the program and while the program is running.
  • Added profiles with inventory hotkeys only.
  • Added an options menu for sound options.
  • Some other minor changes.

Changes in this version

  • Fixed a bug that made the chat window in Warcraft III dissappear.

Changes in this version

  • Added inventory hotkeys.
  • Improved the FAQ and put it into the menu.
  • Changed the default sounds. (thanks to a-devil)
  • Added some option to enable or disable chat sounds and activation sounds seperately.

Changes in this version

  • First version - premiere ;)
