Topic Subject:Need help with the Hotkeys (Patch problem)
posted 12-09-05 06:40 PM EDT (US)         
I just played my first game with the new patch, and none of my hotkeys worked how can I get my old hotkeys?

I try to use the new Hotkey system but it keeps saying that key is reserved and can't be mapped... ?:-(

I also opened the hotkey file and it was exactly the way I mapped my keys.

rename your file to and put it in the start up folder.

You mean hotkeys.con and user.con I think?

Change is inevitable, except in certain vending machines..

Can someone tell me what I would put to map idle military to "`"?

Thanks! problem solved!

Use Tab for idle military (ofcourse depends on personal preference)

I think he means what to type into the file to add an 'idle military' hotkey, not what key to set it to.

Just call me Robert.

Don't bother with that crap.

Use the enhanced hotkey editor from Ekanta's site from mine at sig below

Ekanta's allows unit production from one row of keys
and his default keys are probably more like what
you are used to.
Mine requires two rows (but includes fluyt/galleon
and crap you used to add in user.con or hotkeys.con)

ALL Game Hotkeys override each other in this order...
c:\..\my documents\my games\age of empires 3\users\newprofile.xml
The contents of event is the key or key combo you made a change for
either manually or from hotkey menu in game
c:\program files\microsoft games\age of empires 3\data\defaultkeymap.xml & xmb If you do not see file, you are using default ES provides but is compressed in don't worry.
If you click default all in hotkey menu it clears all events in newprofile.xml
c:\program files\microsoft games\age of empires 3\startup\user.con followed by game.con

I hope that last paragraph makes things perfectly clear.
(keys like Tab and ESC you cannot enter via hotkey editor BUT you may try changing them there to something else, then open newprofile.xml and type in Tab or ESC in event near bottom of the file for that section)
