How to Activate Dotakeys
Before you start using dotakeys, you need Activate them. To do this press "Activate" button on Main Window or press F8 in game ( when DotA begins ). After you press F8 in game, DotaKeys should whisper ( if you play on BNET ) message "Dotakeys: on" to you from yourself. The Message in game looks like this:
If you play on LAN, it write message "/w Dotakeys: on" to all your teammates. It's because Warcraft cant whisper on LAN.
How to setup Hero
After you set your "base" hotkeys, at start of every game you need to setup hero. There is two ways how to do it:
1. F7 Procedure ( old )
2. Hero Codes ( new )
1.3.1 "F7" Procedure
Note: This procedure is longer then HeroCode, which is newer and recomended. But if you cant use it, you can use this.
When game begins, you must tell Dotakeys which hero you use. To do it with F7 Procedure you need this:
1. ( if you didnt do this before ) Press F8 To activate DotaKeys
2. Now if you know hotkeys of your Hero, go to number 4, else continue on number 3
3. Press Red Cross, which is for "New skill" and hover mouse over skills. The yellow letters are default hotkeys of skills
4. Now when you know hotkeys of Hero, press F7
5. After you press F7, DotaKeys should whisper message "DotaKeys: Please Type *YOUR* hero shortcuts..." to you
6. Press ORIGINAL HOTKEYS in order from left to right. Ie: if hotkeys are "c,t,d,w", you press F7ctdw
7. DotaKeys should whisper message "DotaKeys: You typed: x,x,x,x", where x,x,x,x are hotkeys you typed
This is other way to setup hero. Now you dont need anything, just write "hero code" into chat. Hero code is basically FIRST 4 letter of hero name. Ie: Vengeful spirit is Class and Shendelzare is Name. So code for Vengeful spirit is "shen". List of heroes & codes is available in chapter 3.[list]
1. Press F8 To activate DotaKeys
2. Press ENTER
3. Write \. You can also use \ or + instead of /
4. Now DotaKeys should whisper message "You control HERO [x,x,x,x], where HERO is Class and x,x,x,x is ORIGINAL hotkeys of hero you control
