This page lists all the keys and their functions. The key presented in this chapter has a default assignment. Using the Starter.exe it is possible to change the keys at your own idea. Please keep in mind that every single key shortcut can be edited also, by editing the eu07_input-keyboard.ini file located in the root folder of MaSzyna.

Also, the function names is listed in this html file, as a comment, right after the "tr" tag.

Important Notice

Keys marked as Num... are keys on the numeric keypad (on the right side).
Remember to turn on the NumLock. Using the 3 key will not replace the Num 3 key!

Same goes for the rest of the Num... keys. If you have a laptop without a numberpad / numeric keyboard, try to use Fn key + the desired key.

Other than the above, the Shift + 0, Shift + 1, ..., Shift + 9 key combinations are used to start events, defined previously in the scenery. It may sound dangerous and hard to understand. Don't worry :) Shift + 2 might not work in every scenery. In every scenery that requires the use of these key combinations, a appropriate info is given in the Rainsted launcher. Most sceneries have been improved and the need for those key combinations have been minimised.
