Screenshots[edit | edit source]

The Printscreen key (can not be remapped) takes a screenshot that is saved in one of the following directories depending on your OS:

Tip: Copy the directory, and paste it in the address bar for quick access  

Windows: %appdata%\Running with rifles\
Mac: Unknown
Linux: $HOME/.running_with_rifles

Hotkeys[edit | edit source]

For the hotkeys you need to create a file called hotkeys.xml and place it in a directory (see Screenshot section).

If it is in the correct place, you will see other files such as settings.xml and summary_profile.xml

Finally, populate the hotkeys.xml file with the example below and modify to your desires and restart your game for changes to take effect.
