How to activate Custom Hotkeys for the Warcraft 3 Reforged Beta?
Important: You can still use the classic Warcraft 3 Customkeys.txt for the Reforged Beta, but you need to place them into a different folder based on your installation. You can also use the “grid” layout from the client, but it’s not perfect yet.
Download or Copy your existing Warcraft 3 Customkeys.txt
First of all, copy your existing Warcraft 3 Customkeys.txt file from your old WC3 folder, or download a new one below. For more details please read my complete Customkeys Guide.
Warcraft 3 Customkeys.txt Download:
Create the correct Reforged Customkeys Folder:
Now create a folder and copy the Customkeys.txt file into it:
Important: There might be already a txt file, but these are the Warcraft 3 default hotkeys, replace the Customkeys.txt file with the one from step 1.
Standart Customkeys Path:
C:\Users\username\Documents\Warcraft III Beta\CustomKeyBindings
OneDrive users Reforged Path:
C:\Users\username\OneDrive\Documents\Warcraft III Beta\CustomKeyBindings
Activate Custom Key Bindings in your WC3 Reforged Game Settings:
Start Warcraft 3 Reforged and open the game settings in the bottom right corner. Now hit the Input button, change the Preset Keybinds to “Custom” and save the settings.Afterwards, restart Warcraft 3 Reforged.
Whenever there is a Warcraft 3 Reforged Patch Recheck all Customkeys steps
Reforged will get new patches in a high frequency in the next time, this may break your current working Customkeys settings.
Whenever there is an update, check your customkeys and game settings, before jumping into the next match. You can find all Warcraft 3 Reforged Updates in my patches list, once they get released.
Have fun playing! 😉
