Simply put; What is the full list of hotkeys and their functions in Mental Omega? They're not showing up in any of the options menus,and after exhaustive Google searching,I haven't found anything. What I know so far...

 

D: Deploy selected units.

C: Entire army cheers.

S: Selected units cease all current actions.

T: Select all units of the selected type currently on-screen. Press again for global selection of selected units.

Spacebar: Jump to most recent alert.

G: Does something; I presume guard. Which does what,exactly,in this game? I've seen no change in unit behaviour in this mode.

Ctrl+#: Assigns control group.

#: Selects appropriate control group. Press again to jump to control group.

H: Jump to Primary Construction Yard.

Ctrl+M1: Force-fire.

 

Obviously,this ain't much. In particular,I'm looking for they hotkeys for structure placement,waypoint mode,and attack-move... If THAT command exists in the game. Thank you for your time.

Some useful ones:

 

Q - Buildings tab. Can also be used for building placement without clicking on them.

W - Armory tab. Same with buildings on defense placements. 

E - Infantry tab

R - Vehicles tab

K - Repair

L - Sell

Alt+M1 - Force move. Commonly used to crush infantries with your tanks.

X - Scatter. Commonly used to counter force move infantry crushing.

Holding Z - Waypoint mode

Ctrl+Shift+M1 - Attack move

P - Select all combatants

B - Beacon placement. Basically works as a ping in MP.

G - is indeed guard mode, your units will actively engage and pursue enemy units within their range.

Space - Center view on the latest EVA report like unit lost, base is under attacked, etc.

Shift+M1 - Select or deselect another unit into a group of selected units.

Forgot about this one. This can also be used to guard a unit, your units will escort that unit wherever it goes.

Z (for waypoints) + Ctrl + Shift : your waypoint unit will engage enemy units they run into, if they kill the enemy they meet they will continue with their waypoint

Most Important info: Ctrl + Alt + M1 used on repair units (engineer ifv, stingers) forces them into active repair mode. Without that they wont repair anything unless IFV/Stinger is in move.

Also, how to select multiple defence structures like units? I mean, for example, choose multiple gattling cannons and target/focus with them, lets say, a kirow.

You need to shift click every single defense, there is no other way.

can someone please explain how adding multiple build orders is expressed in the game as opposed to removing multiple build orders?

I don't get it.

You mean queues? Without external program or special mouse, you can't, really. RA2 engine doesn't have a shift-click equivalent to that of Age of Empires or newer C&C (?)

So the only way to play with "Shift + Left Click to Add multiple build orders" and "Shift + Right Click to Remove multiple build orders" is with a special mouse or external program? if so, which mouse/software is it?  

 

I'm asking because user "Foxtrot1_1" mentioned it is an actual hotkey in his comment on this thread.

Shift + right click works to remove an entire queue on a single unit. That one works without the software. The adding one is the part that can't be done without it

I'm not sure if I can disclose the third party program. I don't use it myself to be honest, really. I'd rather leave someone with more authority or knowledge of the rules to post it.

I'm not sure when it was added, but the hotkeys can be edited in the main menu (Options -> Game (tab) -> Configure Hotkeys). The hotkeys for Repair and Sell are too far from the rest of them, especially since they're both used frequently. I have mine set to F (fix) and C (close-down :p).
