Stepping into The World, there are many functions that are self explanatory. However, some of the basic controls are different than your average game. You will notice that game-play as mentioned in the PS3 games is similar here, minus having a PS3 controller. Please note that this game is not based off the PS3 games, but the portrayal of The World in the project called dotHack. It is not a re-creation of dotHack. It would be best if you refer to this game as The World. That tingling up your spine, each time you say it, is perfectly normal. W & S - Forward/Backward. Shift + W is walk, but only when holding both. A & D - Left/Right (no turn) E - Interacts with NPCs, Brings up Quest Journal C - Attributes P - Friends List M - Mini map; always set to north; doesn't always show land features. Space - Jump Page Down - Sitting Escape - Game options Enter - Chat (click outside the chat box to un-toggle chat) F1 - Warp (press near Chaos Gate) Arrow buttons change keywords. F2 - Edit Character F3 - Send Message/Flash mail Numbers - Spells/skills. It isn't top row then bottom row in the skills bar; they're consecutive in placement. *** For most of these you can toggle it for on and off. Numbers are the exception, of course. Right Click - Runs camera left & right, along with your PC. - Secondary Fire2 (primary is Right Ctrl) *Actually I think both (either/or) click & drag works here. Left Click - Selects items, use items. Only click once! - Secondary Fire1 (Primary is Left Ctr) * I didn't notice anything for Wavemaster here. Login Screen - Self explanitory. Type the username & password of your choice, then click Register, in order to create a new account. Note on Passwords: Make sure it isn't a guessable password, or something that relates to your character's name. Don't give out information to anyone that may compromise your account. Don't even let your best friend(s) know it. I've seen many cases (other games) where people were hijacked by those they called friends. Character Editing - You can hit F2 to edit your character and choose your class. Below are the basic color combinations available. Friends - Even though the game is in Alpha, we can still add friends. We lose the list, of course. Click the player you want to add. You have the option of trading, adding to party, or adding as a friend. Afterwards, you will need to hit P to access your friend's list. Whispers are done here as with most games, using /Username. Warping - As mentioned above, warping is activated by pressing F1 near a chaos gate. There are two little symbols in the upper right that warp you to Aqua Polis (aka Mac Anu), symbolized by the V, or Mu Hel, which has a circle symbol. Both are root towns. You can also swap key words and come up with new places. This is done by using your up/down arrow keys to choose new words, and using your left/right arrow keys to go to the next selection. Then you click Warp. As of Alpha, not every place has a chaos gate. If you're able to remember where you were when you arrived to the new spot, just head back there so you can gate out. You press F1 for the same menu. If you're in a hurry, use the one of the symbols I mentioned above. Combat -Combat is pretty straight forward. Equip items by bringing up your inventory and clicking the item once. E is used to attack. You must be facing your opponent before you attack. If not, you'll just be attacking the air. Using items such as potions or charms is also done by clicking once. Below is the skillbar and how to understand its order. If you have a staff, such as with a Wavemaster, you will need this to attack instead of just hitting E. Looting - Looting items on the ground, such as the infamous Bear Cat Egg, is done by clicking the item. I believe chests are the same way. I keep running into bugs so I will confirm this through someone else, or myself.
