Introduction to the Interface

After you've finished with Gwen, you'll finally be able to move around freely. You will notice that your character is always in the center of the playing screen.


Moving

To travel, simply move the mouse over the game world display, then right click and hold. The mouse cursor will always point away from your character, who will move in the indicated direction (for example, if you wish to walk up the screen, hold the cursor above your character). You will continue to head in that direction until you come to an obstruction or release the mouse button. The further away the cursor is from the character, the faster the character will move. Double right-clicking will cause your character to move to the exact point where the cursor was.


Player Quick Menu

You may notice a small arrow icon near the top or bottom of the screen, clicking on that will reveal the Player Quick Menu which can be used to open further useful displays. It cannot be closed by right clicking, but can be condensed by clicking the arrow again.

It can be used to open Map, Paperdoll, Backpack, Journal, Chat Window and Help Menu. Left clicking then holding the mouse over the menu (as opposed to the buttons on the menu) allows you to "drag" it around the screen by moving the cursor - release when you've got it where you want it. Most other displays in the game can likewise be dragged (allowing you to customize the interface to your choosing). Usually displays can be closed by right clicking them.

Paperdoll

The Paperdoll is one of the most important and commonly used menu in the game. You used it to change your character clothing and equipment and you can also access other important menus.


Backpack

The Backpack serves as the primary storage for individual characters. The Backpack is always displayed in the Paperdoll. To open the Backpack, click it in the Player Quick Menu or the Paperdoll window or use the default keyboard command, Alt + I. If you have the Paperdoll and Backpack open, you can equip/unequip your character by dragging items from one display to the other. Likewise, many items in the game world can be picked up by dragging them into your pack.


Map

Clicking on Map will bring up a small map (or "Radar" view) of your immediate area. The Map may alternatively be opened by holding Alt + R.


Journal

Journal will reveal a small scroll of text which helps keeping track of conversations. To scroll text back and forth, left click and hold the ribbon to the right of the scroll and move it up or down. To enlarge or shrink the journal, left click and hold the tab on the base of the scroll and move that up or down.


Chat

While Ultima Online comes with a built in chat system, we at UO Roleplay use our own system that combines both a global in game chat with our Public IRC Server. This chat can be accessed through the IRC or while in game simple by saying [c or [ch followed by what you wish to say. For example "[c It's a pleasure to meet you all! I'm sure we'll have a great time together."

Options
