     Just a quick question - does anyone know if it's possible to change the hotkeys for characters disciplines?
     
     There's occasional moments when I just fancy using celerity, potence and feral claws, and then going on a spaughtering spree, but it's a pain having to run around with the disciplines box open so I can choose different ones while massacring beasties.
     
     Any ideas?
     
     Ta!

     The only hotkeys provided are (F)eed and (H)eal, but since quickly casting disciplines one after another is important to surviving combat, so included in the 1.1 patch is a feature that lets you pause the game and assign actions to any or all of your Coterie members.  When you unpause, they will all perform their assigned actions at the same time.  At this point you can pause it again, assign new actions and continue.  To pause/unpause the game, just hit the Pause/Break button on thekeyboard.
     
     To make things easier still, you can drag discipline icons from the discipline pane down to the "quick discipline" slots at the bottom right portion of the screen.  once you've assigned quick disciplines (each character gets their own 6 slots) you can quickly pick one of them by using 1-6 on the upper portion of the keyboard.
     
     Tip: always activate celerity first, since it speeds up all subsequent actions including the casting of other disciplines.  if you use Obfuscate, you might want to cast that second, that way if you are attacked before you're fully ready to fight back, at least you'll be invisible to your attacker while you finish preparing.

     Ah, Skyra! You're a genius! This is exactly what I was trying to change - the quick disciplines. Thanks for help and a quick response. Much appreciated!!  grin
     
     Cheers 'n' beers!

     with or without the patch,the game never supported directplay.directplay lets you reprogram keys in
     other games.
