Extension Script - Windows only
Plug and Play:
|DCGExtensionScript2.2.ahk and the Sound files|
How to use it?
- Generate a Customkeys.txt from this website, the script will not work without one. Download the exe file and place it anywhere you want: DCGExtensionScript2.2.exe
Start the program by double clicking the file (Vista and Windows 7 must Run as Administrator). The script icon should now be visible in the taskbar. The "S" means that the script is currently suspended (not active).
When you're ingame you can use the following commands:
F5: Turns on the script (Inventory + autocast hotkeys).
F6: Turns off the script (All extension hotkeys)
F7: Toggles autocast
F8: Toggles invoker
F9: If your hotkeys are active when you chat. Press this button once. Chat fix button.
Space: Focus your hero
- All above hotkeys can be customized under Miscellaneous
Good to know
- The script can only be turned on within warcraft3!
When youre not inside warcraft 3 the script will automaticlly turn off after 5 seconds so remember to turn it back on when you tab back into your game
When you press enter within warcraft 3 the script is temperarly disabled. This is because you dont want the script activated when you type text messages. If for some reason the script should get out of sync and your text messages suddently look like this: "W8y d4es my 1ypi3g lo4k so wei8d". Press F9 (Enter syncronize button) to resync the script.
When the script is started it will try to locate your warcraft III folder. If it fails to do so it will prompt you for the location. Inside the warcraft III directory it will locate your CustomKeys.txt file and alert you if it fails to do so. If you do not have a CustomKeys.txt file go generate a new one from the generator tab.
- Autocast hotkeys are implemented by programatically moving your mouse cursor to the targeted ability, right click and move it back to its original position. Thats the reason the ability tooltip is visible for a split second when you activate a autocast ability.
- Invoker hotkeys are implemented the same way as autocast hotkeys. Only difference is: left click instead of right click.

What is AutoHotKey and is it safe to use?
AutoHotKey is a small windows program that can be used to remap your mouse or keyboard. It is safe to use and contains no virusses or trojans. If you want to know more about the program or study the source code. Go visit their website
The script i wrote for AutoHotKey is also completly harmless. All it does is help you play DOTA. Below is a short description of what the script actually does.
When started it searches the registry to determine in what folder you installed warcraft 3. It then opens the CustomKeys.txt to determine your preffered inventory shortcuts. If it fails to do so it will prompt for the location of the file. When the script is activated(F5) your hotkeys will be active. If you mapped Q to inventory slot1, the script will catch your Q keypress and send numpad7 instead. So really all the script does is faking your numpad buttons. There is nothing new here. Warkeys and DotaKeys already have scripts doing this, but I thought including one of my own would make a nice finish for my tool. To make it even easier for you i have created an exe file containing both AutoHotKey and my script. Both script and exe file can be downloaded at the top of this page.
