Detailed information about SCS hot keys (e.g. hot_key_A)?

Recommended Posts

I have a question regarding the hotkeys listed in stratagems.ini.


There is no explanation in the readme, and I have not been able to find any specific information regarding them listed anywhere explicitly.

I have tried to deduce their function by analysing the source code, and this is what I have come up with. Please correct me if there are any errors.

  • hot_key_A: unused?
  • hot_key_B: protection from fire, lightning, magic energy (Ease-of-use party AI)
  • hot_key_C: Cleric chaotic commands (Ease-of-use party AI)
  • hot_key_D: EquipMostDamagingMelee (?)
  • hot_key_E: enable/disable summons AI
  • hot_key_F: EquipRanged (?)
  • hot_key_K: No-melee mode deactivated (?)
  • hot_key_S: various Pre-cast mode activated (?)
  • hot_key_V: cleric death ward  (Ease-of-use party AI)

Also, missing from readme, but present in the source code:

  • hot_key_G: ReallyForceSpellRES (?)
  • hot_key_Z: Paladin protection from evil (Ease-of-use party AI)

One problem that I have with those is that there does not seem to be a way to change them after installing SCS… and if you are unaware of that and only later realise that they conflict with your custom key bindings in the game, then you are out of luck. I have only recently realised that the key "E", which I use for displaying inventory, also keeps turning on and off the summons AI 😯.
