Default New features with the middle mouse button

Is there a keyboard shortcut to replace the middle mouse button to use the new features?
I am having problem with making it work (not just this game).

Default Re: New features with the middle mouse button

This is why we spent hours building the game guide..... maybe look there first next time ?



it is located, oddly enough, under the heading "DEPLOYMENT HOTKEYS"....works the same in game as well as deployment

Yes clearly my fault. I am an idiot because while I checked the guide, I can't find what I am looking for even after you tell me the information is there.

I am asking for the shortcut key, if any, that replaces the middle mouse button action when pressed on the mini map to enable the alternate view.

I should have been more clear.

But you didn't SAY that in your initial post did you??.....was there any mention of the mini map ?? NO there was not......next time be clearer in your question so in THIS case the answer is NO there is no way to switch views without the middle mouse button that I am aware of

I clearly said

I didn't say feature.
It was plural.
Regardless, you have anger issues. Nothing new, but my god you are rude all the time.
Out of curiosity, do you speak in that tone to people you meet in person?

You read more into my answer than was there so that's your issue to deal with. Once the question was clear you got your answer then proceeded to spin it into something it was not. I will let others answer your questions from here on and save us both the aggravation

The functionality of the middle mouse button was initially given to the map view and that was it's primary function, later we added it as a switch to the mini when it was obvious that would work with that as well but there is no other shortcut for the mini switch as it was assumed everyone has a functioning three button mouse now.

Do as you wish.
Thanks for the answer. I hope one day you implement a shortcut key for it too.

I think he was asking for a shortcut key to as his middle mouse button is erratic.
Quick fix buy a new mouse or download a free keyboard mapping program, you can set hotkeys to whatever you want then.

The mouse is fine, but for some reason I am having issues with Windows and the middle mouse button since the 90s. Just one of those things.

A keyboard mapping program might be useful indeed, thanks for the suggestion.

For the future, would it be possible to make it so that the middle mouse button clicked at random hex would show LOS of selected unit from that particular hex?
