How to Activate Dotakeys?
  • When DotA begins, press "Activate" button on Main Window or press F8 in game.
  • After you press F8 in game, DotaKeys should whisper a message "Dotakeys: on" to you from yourself. (if you are playing on BNET)
  • If you are playing on LAN, DotAKeys will whisper a message "/w Dotakeys: on" to all your teammates.

    It's because Warcraft can't whisper on LAN.

How to Setup Hero?

After you set your "base" hotkeys, at start of every game you need to setup hero.

There are two ways on how to do it:

  1. F7

    When game begins, you must tell DotaKeys which hero you would use.
    1. Press F8 To activate DotaKeys (if you didn't do this before) 
    2. Now if you know the 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.
      Example : 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.
  2. Hero Codes

    Just write "hero code" into chat.

    Hero code is basically FIRST 4 letter of hero name.

    Example: Vengeful spirit is Class and Shendelzare is Name.

    So code for Vengeful spirit is "shen".
    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
