Emotes on a Mac?

Will I be able to add friends in Hearthstone and chat with people?
Yes! The folks in your Battle.net friends list (both BattleTag and Real ID friends) are available for games or text-based conversation. Players will not be able to chat with anyone who is not on their friends list. However, players will be able to choose from a variety of emotes for basic communication during games.

How do you do a right click on a Mac?

I've tried shift click, shift+cmd click, ctrl+click, and alt+click.

Put me out of my misery and let me know how many chickens I need to sacrifice?

Try clicking with 2 fingers on the trackpad or the mouse instead of one... ^^

I've tried all variety of modifiers as well. Not sure if it's even turned on for the Mac platform. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

ctrl-click would give you a right click unless you changed it in the mouse or accessibility control panel. Same thing applies to windows.

I use a mouse with a right button, and have not been able to emote to players or message to Battle.Net friends. I am assuming it's a bug or a not-yet-implemented on mac thing.

The normal Control-Click just tries to take a normal left click action. I don't see anyway to remap the emotes hotkey or activate it without a mouse right now.

Works fine if I plug a mouse in though.

I can't even figure out where the emote option is... and I do use ctrl-click. :(

Currently you can't use Ctrl-click, Cmd-click, etc. to perform a right click in Hearthstone. Cmd-click works in World of Warcraft, so hopefully this will change in a future version.

If you have a trackpad, you can enable "Secondary Click" under Mac OS X's "System Preferences">>"Trackpad". Then you can do a two-finger click for a right click.

Older MacBook's don't support multi-touch, though. If the Secondary Click option doesn't work, then you'll have to use a mouse for now.

Modifier key did not work to select emotes but th two finger tap on trackpad did. Thanks for suggestion.

I have a Logitech mouse with 5 buttons. I normally have the right mouse button configured as click+command. I changed it just "right click" and now I can emote. Most new Macs come with a Magic Mouse and should be able to do a "right click".

For a long time I thought I couldn't do emotes on a Mac. I hope this helps.

Yeah - this is a problem with Unity. It doesn't know about/use any of your system input configuration. It's really easy for the devs to add basic features like ctrl-click = right-click, so I hope someone from Blizzard is listening.

This is the correct answer everyone, haha

I'll bump this thread.

I almost want to quit playing because I always feel rude being unable to answer other player's emotes.

I use a docking station, so no way to access the track pad.

Adding ctrl-click = right-click is trivial. C'mon guys, don't force me to be rude :/

It'd be great if they'd get on that then.

I can tell when I'm playing people they get ticked off when you don't emote for good sportsmanship/glitch reasons...

as long as two finger click is set as your "secondary click" in system preferences it should work as right click
