On some Starcraft II stream I have seen bigger mouse pointers or some kind of overlay where the hotkeys are shown over each button, e.g. in the build menu. How can I enable that?


In the Gameplay options menu you can select a checkbox for "Command Hotkey Text".

  • I could imagine this impacting PC performance, at least on lower specced machines. Does it? – gbsod May 4 '11 at 23:22

    I can't imagine how. I believe all it does is put the key up in the corner of the box. Very simple operation as far as graphics are concerned. – Weegee May 4 '11 at 23:36

    It does not seem to impact PC performance for me, but it definitely improves my performance. Thanks a lot. – Philipp Riegger May 6 '11 at 6:55

In case your searhing and you want to get back to the command card displaying shortcut keys: In gameplay options uncheck 'Enable simple command card'.
