Mouse 4 / 5 hotkeys partially broken

I saw some old topics regarding no support for mouse 4 / 5 at all from years ago, but I assume those are outdated as I can assign certain commands to mouse 4 / 5 (f.e. select all units / focus on capital town center).

My issue is that not every hotkey works with mouse 4 / 5, specifically the ping commands. When trying to set mouse 4 with the notify/attack/defend pings (mouse 4 / ctrl+mouse 4 / shift+mouse 4), I can define these in the settings menu, but in-game they simply do nothing. Note that ping does work if setting it to some keyboard binding (f.e. alt+1).


  1. Anyone else having this issue as well?
  2. Could this bug be fixed?
