Main Page / Key bindings

Introduction

Key bindings are defined in the keybindings.txt file, which is automatically updated if you rebind keys while playing. Binds in autorun.txt will be executed on startup and these will overwrite any in keybindings.txt. These files can be found in the Wurm game directory under configs. e.g. C:\Games\Wurm\configs\default

Additionally, key binds can be combined with the Exec console command to enable a player to perform a wide range of tasks with only a few keys, swapping keybinds on the fly. See quickswitch hotkeys for more information and examples.

To access the console, press F1 (by default). You can also press ESC and then click on "Console."

Key binds

Key binds allow quick "hotkey" access to common commands and actions. The bind command requires special values as input.

bind <key> <action>
bind <key> "<console command>"

<key> is based on Java key constants. Letters and numbers represent themselves. For other keys, if you can't guess the correct name search the full KeyEvent list. Meta keys can also be specified, e.g. shift-tab or ctrl-alt-w. Available meta keys are Ctrl, Shift, and Alt. The Alt Gr key is treated as Alt (if your keyboard has one). The non-meta key must always be the last key in the combination. It is not possible to bind only meta keys.

(The numpad keys can be tricky, as they duplicate other keys on the main keyboard. They are: numpad[0-9], add, subtract, multiply, divide and decimal.)

It is also possible to bind an action to the middle mouse button, Mouse2.

NB: It's reported that mouse3 and mouse4 work for the "forward/back" buttons on a 5 button mouse.

<action> is a bindable action as listed in the table below.

bind M MINE_FORWARD

<console command> can be any console command. The console command has to be in quotes.

bind F2 "toggle inventory"

To see the current key bind you can issue the command with only the key name

bind <key>

To remove a key bind assign an empty command

bind <key> ""

You can bind keys to say things, in local chat and in other available chats.

bind <key> "say guards!"
bind <key> "say /shout Hello kingdom people!"
bind <key> "say /vil Hello village people!"
bind <key> "say /t <name> Enemies in local run awayyyy!"

You may also choose to change certain chat-function-based bindings like /sleep to different keys

bind <key> "say /sleep"

You can view a list of most "say" bindings by saying /help in game.

To list all key binds use the console command

dump binds

Keys bound to actions are sensitive to the mouse cursor's hover location/position and object highlight. So, if the cursor is hovering over an item in an inventory or highlighting an item on the ground (or a tile itself for other binds), and the TAKE bind key is pressed, that item will be taken. It is not necessary to left-click the mouse button in order to select an item first either; just hovering the mouse over something will allow the key bind to affect it.

Table

This table lists actions only. For commands check the console and chat commands pages.

A note specifically about the in-game wiki. This command is bound by default to the H key. If you've managed to unbind it, you can put it back by using the bind command in your console with "toggle wikisearch" as your bound action. So if you wanted to bind H to the wiki search, you would open your console and type in exactly as below:
bind h "toggle wikisearch"

Key names

In case you want to bind more keys than the regular keys

Examples

For examples of how key bindings can help you, see quickswitch hotkeys and this forum thread.

Additional autorun.txt uses

autorun.txt can be used in several other useful ways.

The following opens windows when the client loads:

toggle skills
toggle inventory
toggle stats

This stops kingdom chat from loading when the game starts, but sometimes someone gets in a message before it takes effect. Placing it at the top of the file may help.

say /kchat

You could add this to know how much sleep bonus you have when you log in. This works best at the bottom of the file.

say /sleep

You could add this to know how long the server has been up. This works best at the bottom of the file.

say /uptime

Defaults

If you want to reset your key bindings to their default state simply delete the keybindings file. A new one will be created with the default values.
