How do you play?

Post  Mr. Digby on Tue Aug 12, 2014 3:24 pm

Watching Mitra's videos I hardly ever see the OOB screen pulled up to select units and I never see him click around on the ground to move his general or other units. Mitra, what keyboard set-up do you use?

What do others do to play this game?

I use the Gcm Hotkeys for almost every command.

Thinking about it, a question comes to mind.

As far as I know, there are a couple of commands along the lines of regiments and brigades advance 50 or a 100 yards. I'm sure they, as most commands, can be translated into a hotkey.

Wouldn't it also be possible to assign such a hotkey to leader movements Kevin? Like advance 10 or 30 yards, or go left and right? Would sure make it easier to move.

Have you a link to these fabled GCM hotkeys, Major Byrd? I have not heard of them.

Byrd wrote:You've installed the GCM hotkey file to Scourge of War.

Below are the new hotkeys you can use:

1 - Take Command (of selected unit only)
2 - Next Unit under same leader
3 - Select Leader of current unit
4 - Wheel left
5 - Wheel right
6 - Advance
7 - Fall back

F2 - Artillery manual target

F - Halt
R - Run
Y - Walk (stop running)

H - Use roads
J - Short Retreat

X - Wheel all the way around (very useful, try it!)
V - Lie down
B - Stand up

L - Chat
I - Chat to team only

9,0 - Artillery use solid and target infantry (this is two keys, hit both when battery commander is selected)

I copied this from the hotkey guide once you enable them via the launcher.

I guess I have to upload the keyboard.csv for the actual commands or can I just copy and paste what's inside it?

Can you upload it somewhere like Dropbox, or perhaps e-mail it to me please?

Sure.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/4lvh0w2jmt29er5/keyboard.csv

This should be it. There are a couple "before gcm keyboard.csv's" but I guess they are exactly what they say they are and therefore unneccessary.

Short move commands exist on the toolbar. They can be seen by pressing the brown up arrow on the combat toolbar. Short distances for battalions and longer ones for brigades.
