• Crusader Kings III Available Now!

    The realm rejoices as Paradox Interactive announces the launch of Crusader Kings III, the latest entry in the publisher’s grand strategy role-playing game franchise. Advisors may now jockey for positions of influence and adversaries should save their schemes for another day, because on this day Crusader Kings III can be purchased on Steam, the Paradox Store, and other major online retailers.


    Real Strategy Requires Cunning

Expanded hotkeys for AOD:

Many gamers already know that they can mod many details of their Paradox games to their liking. I was happy once I'd discovered that I'd easily add more hotkeys. Therefore this is the first modification which I'm going to make once I've installed a new Paradox game: add more hotkeys. For games which use the Europa engine this can be done in just a few minutes: simply open the buttons.txt which can be found in the config sub-directory. The scheme below is the one which I'm using for AOD. If you want to change some of these hotkeys simply search for the 'shortcut = ' entries and change them to your liking.

ESC - back to main map

F4 - View Intelligence
F5 - View Research
F6 - View Production
F7 - View Trade
F8 - View Diplomacy
F9 - View Ledger
F10 - Game Menu
F1 while viewing Int/Res/Prod/Trade/Diplo screens - VPs

These keys are only functional while viewing the main map:
h - View provinces
F1 - View Army
F2 - View Navy
F3 - View Air Force
c - View combat
b - View forcepool
n - View normal map
p - View political map
w - View weather map
e - View economic map
s - View supply map
r - View revolt risk map
, - View regions
. - View areas
d - View diplomatical map
v - View VP map
q - opens pop-up window for trade & diplo offers
+ - zoom in
- - zoom out
* - View movement arrows
space - pause

These keys are hard-coded:
g - merge units
u - load/unload units
, - toggle through your units
. - toggle through your units
Pos1 - capital
F11 - save screen
F12 - console
Pause - pause
ctrl+ - increase game speed
ctrl- - decrease game speed

filefactory:

AOD hotkeys+
(download button at the bottom of the page)

The revised AOD buttons.txt file will eventually also be included in the E3 map mod.


installation:

The revised AOD buttons.txt file is now bundled with my expanded armynames/navynames/airnames.csv files for AOD.

Simply extract the content of the .rar file in your game's main directory. To allow for an easier installation (and also removal) of the mod I've included JSGME, which is a mod-enabler. Start the JSGME.exe, mark the mod (hotkeys+ OR armynames XXL) and then click on the arrow button in the center, which is pointing to the right side. Then the installation of this mod is being done. De-installing is done by clicking the arrow button which is pointing in the opposite direction.

* JSGME = JoneSoft Generic Mod Enabler

Would you mind reuploading the file? Link is dead again.
It seems that rapidshare has finally deleted my account. Well, tbh I won't miss them. For quite a long time my account wasn't fully accessible for me: it had an irritating blinking effect of 2 pages alternating every second. :(

The good news are: my mini-mods (names XXL & the buttons.txt file) are also included in my E3 map mod.


Maybe on Dropbox or Google Drive, as those are less subject to random deletion.
Thanks, might be worth checking. I'm indeed looking for a reliable & free file hoster. Even imageshack wants to get paid today...

I was gonna download your E3 mod, but its gamefront link is dead as well (they say they have the file but it errors out once you actually try to download it).

Seems to be a temporary issue. Now it's working.
