How many do you use?
How important do you think they are?
I tend to use most of the hotkeys, i have 4-5 control groups constantly.
Thats in dm though, i still want to hear your opinions and experiences.
Sooo... speak up.

for creation of units/buildings i use all the default hotkeys.
h,v,w,t,c,a,f,s,b,d (t,c are norse ta and cav). for greek/eggy i click all the units to make them except c, for greek hips. some of the hotkeys are dual ones. like i use a for archery but also a to make a longboat.

then i use 2-6 for building groups.
norse its 2-rax 3-hill forts 4- temples.
for eggy its rax,mig,temple, segie
for greek its stable,archery,rax,temple,fortress

oh and during water i use 2-5 (or however many docks i have) for each dock.

Sounds interesting.
A question about control groups, i recently started adding to-be micro-d units, such as belly, medusas etc to control groups.
Would you consider adding a group of archers to a group for speeding up firing-focus micro?

well..... honestly it all depends on what you're comfortable with and what your style is.
with my style, i dont like to make units into control groups. I already have a 'flow' of the way i play. i like it, it makes sense to me and i dont want to change it nor do i think it could be improved, per se (improved for ME, i mean).

with aot i guess there's more autoqueueing going on so perhaps thats a big more viable to have more unit-control groups.

so i dunno, ya you could do it if you wanted to. if you can work it into your 'style' so that it's helping instead of hindering (at first there will perhaps be some hindrance while you get used to it), ya it could benefit your micro.

i use hotkeys for building and finding buildings when i forget to put them in control group.
I even use hotkey for Auto Que.

They reduce most of the time.

Open note pad, write this line :

// HOTKEY FOR AUTOQUEUE
map("q", "game", "uiToggleBuildingQueue")

Save it as user.con. Copy paste it in AOM folder in startup.
Play the game and press q for AQ.
If you want some other key, just change that q in the line and type that key.

@VEGITO : Thanks for that auto-queue hotkey, I needed that one.
But, what should I write (instead of "q") for RIGHT CONTROL or RIGHT SHIFT button ?

Pitlord, stop spreading cheats here.

I don't think so. Besides, it is too easy to use GPs with mouse itself, why you need hot-keys for them also ? clown

i know their r no direct hot-keys...but may b by some editing in any file to create one just like mirez helped me in making hot key for patrolling Pegasus...
yea its easy to use gps with mouse itself but i want more faster way...sometimes u really need it...eg- instant hot-key for cease fire; as soon as u see Ancestors gp...u cant do it with mouse(i know many ppl will start posting after my post its very easy to use cease fire with reasons like u hav to guess the right moment or keep ur pointer on gp blah blah...but trust me its impossible and has only 1/100 chance when playing against pro isis player)but with a hot-key i am pretty sure the chances will increase.

The code is

map ("alt-2","game","uiSetSpecialPower(147) uiSpecialPowerAtPointer()")

147 stands for ceasefire, alt-2 is the hotkey ingame. I have no clue where to find the numbers corresponding to the godpowers though.
