  • Use left mouse button for move & attack?

    Hi there,

    I use left mouse button for both moving & attacking in all games that I play. And it seems the option is not there in Dota 2 settings. How do I change that (supposedly in the config files of the games)?

    Thank you!

    Dunno if it still works but give it a try:

    unbind "mouse1"
    alias "leftclick" "+sixense_left_click; -sixense_left_click"
    alias "atkGround" "mc_attack; leftclick"
    bind "mouse1" "atkGround"

      Where am I supposed to put the codes? Thank you!

        Either in a config file and execute the config file from within the console or type them manually in console.

          Those don't work anymore. You will have to use a third party program like AHK. You can easily remap keys on your keyboard and mouse. You can autostart AHK script and make it only active if the Dota 2 window is active. It is unlikely to trigger a VAC ban since it does not read memory or modify any dlls. It modifies your input like a lot of softwares already do especially gaming keyboards and mice.

            AHK does not work on a mac. Something like hammerspoon might, you just have to google for help with it.
            Dota 2 should have provided such option, but instead it has everything hard-coded.
            There is an useless command dota_swap_mouse_spellcast, I have no idea why that was implemented instead of a full mouse buttons swap.
