This isn't everything that the ? pages will tell you but covers the important parts:

BASIC MOVEMENT and LOOKING AROUND

TURNING and LOOKING
Move the Mouse
PGUP key = look up
PGDWN key = look down

MOVEMENT
W or Up arrow = forward, double tap = roll
S or down arrow = backstep, +jump = backflip
A or left arrow = strafe left, doubt tap = roll
D or right arrow = strafe right, double tap = roll

SPECIAL CONTROLS

M = map on/off
L = Quest log
V = Mouse menu
Z = look up/down lock on/off
R = Revive character

JUMPING and CLIMBING
Spacebar = jump
Forward + jump = long jump and climb
Strafe + jump = dodge left/right

ITEMS and SWITCHES
Shift key = pick up item, flip switch, open chest, smash crate, talk with NPC

PC STATS
C = PC char status page

Q = Quick swap weapons (must be equipped)This will also take you from a magic spell to weapons as well. Must use hotkeys to quickly get back to magic, see below.

USE ITEM READY MAGIC HOTKEYS

E = Inventory Page
Click on Magic Category
Click Spell to ready or invoke
Pointer on spell and press Hotkeys 1 – 8 to set

Personally, I've reset most of the keyboard commands so that I can do most of this stuff from the number pad.

Still having trouble with this interface but I'm getting better. I ignore the whole strafe commands and made the left and right arrows on the number pad my turn left/right. Do this WITH the mouse and you turn faster. Still a pain.

Off to die some more!

LOL! Thanks, Wyv [img]smile.gif[/img] I'll be looking at this some more this evening.

Based on the demo, I'm definitely going to pick it up.

There was at least another page of information on camera angles/view which I didn't bother to write down. Last thing I want to be doing at this point is messing around with strange camera angles.

I get frustrated enough just trying to keep my point of view where I like it anyways! lol!!

i recomend starting the demo out just spelling all the monsters to death. even a goblin will kill you trying to sword it.

I still dont have sword combat down and ive practiced a lot and advanced my character. what i recomend is fighting backing up. so hitting s left click. back into the wall is fine.

I've been working on the sword/shield combo. Just like W&W, critters have an attack pattern. Hold your shield up to defend, wait for their pause, and then strike.

The only downside is you can go through a lot of shields that way

You'll know that has happened when you hold up your shield, your opponent swings, and your character grunts from being hit (and splashes blood...)
