Hotkeys[edit]

In the remastered version of Brood War (StarCraft: Remastered) you can customize your hotkeys, but only the letter keys. The non-letter hotkeys, which are helpful to know, cannot be changed.

Link Description
Grid The default hotkeys use all letter keys on the keyboard. 'Grid' only uses the letter keys on the left of the keyboard (image). On Windows put the downloaded TXT file in the "C:\Users\<YourUsername>\Documents\Starcraft\hotkeys\$device" folder. You can further customize your hotkeys in Brood War. If you play Zerg and use Grid it is advised to change 'Rally' to W. If you'd like to see a comparison between the Default hotkeys and Grid, see this spreadsheet.
