Proper hotkeys for EE, user.con

Author File Description
jammainen On Extended Edition, default hotkeys are always on and you cant disable them through hotkey editor. Also hotkey editor doesnt allow conflicting hotkeys. So if you want to set siege camp and counter barracks to the same button you cant. So normally you would have to use multiple hotkey profiles when playing different civs, this allows you to use just one hotkey profile.

Eg: Ctrl-z is always find tc and z is always build town center. Even if you set tc hotkey to like "a" then town center is both a and z.

And if you try to set z to lets say, build a granary, it wont work properly because default hotkey always takes priority. If you have resources for town center, z is always town center, granary only if you dont have resources for tc.

So found a workaround for this, which involves first setting hotkey to NULL and then redefining it. This works because user.con takes priority over default hotkeys.

When using this mod, you shouldn't use ingame hotkey editor. If you want to edit hotkeys, edit user.con file. Only exception for me is hotkey that I wish to bind to "§" button, because it cant be done through user.con for some strange reason. I use ingame hotkey editor to set it to autoqueue and then restart the game. Then it works properly.

My hotkeys (you can edit them by editing user.con):
q,w,e,r,t - create units

(plain is build ctrl+ is find)
a - barracks
s - stable, siege camp, counter barracks
d - fort
f - farm
g - house
h - wall
j - tower

z - granary/guild/storage pit/(find ox cart)
x - mining camp/store house/garden/(find hesp tree)
c - lumber camp/archery range
v - temple
b - dock
n - armoury
m - market

find tc: middle mouse button
idle villager: space
idle military: ,
attack move: mouse button5 (forward button)
ungarrison: capslock
garrison: (this is actually hardcoded to "alt" button, so I see no reason why to set it to other button)

And many others like:
q: build monument/obelisk

How to install:
Copy user.con to /startup folder in Age of Mythology main folder.

This is made for EE, but can be edited to work in disk version too. Just remove all chinese references(+storage pit, garden)
This works online!

If you have any questions or suggestions let me know!

Amaranths It doesn't seem to override control-b. It stays as find barracks.

Also mouse3 doesn't start working as find town center.

EDIT. Got this to work when I ran Steam as admin.

Pelagothuria It works really well on my disk-version. Thank you very much!

But it doesn't work on my AOM:EE, even after reinstalling it, deactivating all mods, etc. Is there anything i missed?
