Battle for Wesnoth – General Controls and Hotkeys


General Controls and Hotkeys

These are the default control keys. Key setup might differ depending on the platform used. For example you will often have to use the command key instead of the control key when you are using MacOSX. You can change most hotkeys to your taste using the Preferences menu.
