Changing hotkeys not working?

Anyone else witnessing one of the following issues? I regularly have the game freeze or crash when I open 'Options' from the main menu, often when I wish to alter hotkeys. Especially changing hotkeys doesn't work: clicking a certain command automatically makes it select another... Using the up-and-down buttons on the keyboard lets me navigate through the hotkeys overview, but again: pressing on 'Change selected' and subsequentially pressing any key makes it jump through that menu again (wrongfully, unintentionally).

I am playing AoE 2 DE on a Apple M1 (OS Ventura 13.4.1) using Crossover 23.0. The previous patch also had some hotkey issues for Mac and Linux users if I am correct...


It is not working for me as well on Mac Sonoma 14.1. Did you find a fix for the problem?

Yes! I can't change hotkeys either. When I click on a command, it automatically scrolls the list and selects another command. And then the application crashes and I need to restart CrossOver.

I think it possible to change the hotkeys using hki-file generated from this website:

Same problem happening for me Mac M1 - (Monterey 12.3)

I had the same problem but I'm happy to report that this has been fixed with the new CrossOver 24!! I just installed it today, I went ahead and checked this issue right away and now it's all good!!
