Screenshots[]

The Take Screenshot key (can be remapped in Steam settings) takes a screenshot that is saved in one of following directories (depending on your OS):

Windows: %appdata%\Running with rifles\ 
Mac: ~/Library/Application Support/RunningWithRifles
Linux: $HOME/.running_with_rifles

Tip for Windows users: to easily navigate to the directory just copy the path and paste it in the Explorer bar or in the search bar under Start menu for quick access

Hotkeys[]

'Hotkeys' is a file where you can save some quick chat messages enterable by pressing an assigned key.
To create a Hotkeys file you need to create a file called hotkeys.xml and place or just create it in the directory explained above.
Open the hotkeys.xml with a text editor and copy/paste inside the text from example below. Fill the text field to your desires. When done restart your game for changes to take effect.

Tip: be sure to assign buttons 1-10 to hotkeys under F2, or else these keybinds won't work!
