When I hold alt without pressing a it lets me give a move order to the bombers, in a line (but not a customformations line, the dead straight line that the engine draws on a basic move command). When I hold ald and a at the same time it draws a circle (still the engine I think, not customformations) and the chooses targets within that circle to attack.
So is my version of customformations out of date? I got it from the springlobby widget section years ago.
Again, Lua in loadscreens would do wonderful things for the way of displaying tips on loadscreens. That way, you could change the messages any time you want, you could display random messages instead of the same tip on the same background every time. You could easily set it up so hotkey tips display the correct hotkeys that the player is using, instead of people like me seeing hotkeys they don't use on loadscreens.
Most of all though, it would save having to ditch/modify a loadscreen image every time the tip becomes different or irrelevant.
As I said before, I'd quite happily make loadscreens with tips if I didn't think I'd be asked to change the text every month or so.

imo have the url of BA website on the loadscreen and then have the stuff there. Players will remember that there is a website and eventually check it out between games. (when waiting for the game to start you have more time than the few seconds of seeing the loading screen) It would also help to notify about tourneys etc.
