This issue is being tracked by our team, thanks for the report
This issue doesn’t only affect the flare hotkey. I want to use mouse middle click for hotkey which was possible on legacy game (I used it for military waypoint), but by default it is used for “find last notification/alarm” hotkey.
Unfortunately after binding “set military waypoint” to mouse3 (and unbinding the “find last notification”), the mouse3 will still select a random building or unit whichever was the last one that was attacked (as per default “find last notification” hotkey) and I am unable to make set my military waypoint with it.
This is to explain that the same issue from the OP that talks about unbinding the original hotkey not working applies to not only flare hotkey, but also to other hotkeys, for example “find last notification”.
This is a really painful bug
You also cant use “easy military drag” anymore, as the ALT modifier cant be used anymore as the flare overwrites it.
Please don’t wait a month. It’s one if those that is so annoying and gives such a bad wxperience
I’m Japanese, and I don’t speak English well,
so I’m using a translation to reply.
This issue is not only happening with the mouse button.
As far as I can confirm,
the numeric keys have the same issue.
This issue was already reported during beta testing.
Many japanese players have abandoned playing DE because of this issue…
very sad reality…
this should be fixed asap/ or this hotkey simply removed.
this is really ankward “in game”, obviously we use a lot of “alt” and “left click”, so this flare and the soynd is anoying.
please fix that !
While we are on the same topic, I cant unbind the F7 key for pause the game. I have assigned backspace as pause the game to easily pause the game when needed and that i use the Fnumber keys to select groups 1-9 while i use the 1-9 to creat/add to groups.
When i click F7 i expect to select group 7 but it still pauses the game even though I have explicitly changed the pause hotkey to backspace. I play on the allow conflicts settings.
Im surprised Kaiserkleins thread about hotkeys and issues which were raised on behalf of the community 4 months ago were only marked as being followed very recently.
this should’ve been fixed 2 weeks ago.
