Move your character forward by pressing the left and right mouse buttons at the same time. To change direction while moving, keep both buttons pressed and drag the mouse button left or right.
By clicking the mouse wheel, you can set your character to auto-run. Holding the right mouse button while dragging the mouse will change direction.
To jump, press the spacebar on the keyboard. This can be used to leap over obstacles like small rocks or low fences. For details on other keys assigned to character movement, please refer to the Mouse Controls and Keyboard Controls sections.
When using the WASD keys to move your character, you can select Standard Type for a character-based view, or Legacy Type for a camera-based view.
To control the camera, drag the mouse while pressing either the left or right button.
Left Button : Only the camera view will rotate, and not your character.
Right Button : Your character faces the direction in which you rotate the camera.
The direction of camera rotation can be changed in the configuration menu.
