PLAYING WITH THE DOCKING STATION
There are several keyboard shortcuts that you can use to help you control your game:
|TAB||Cycle between your creatures|
|ESC||Exits Docking Station. This will show a confirmation dialog so you can be sure you did wish to quit. The game will automatically save on exit.|
|F1||Toggles Agent Help on or off|
|F6 - F12||Speech Hot-Keys. You can set specific phrases to each of these six keys by typing in the appropriate phrase, and pressing shift and that Function key simultaneously. From then on, pressing that Function key will repeat that phrase.|
|CTRL+S||While holding down CTRL (the control key), press the S key. This will repeat the last phrase you typed.|
|INSERT||Force tickle. While holding down this key, any click on a creature will be interpreted as a tickle, and reward the creature.|
|DELETE||Force slap. While holding down this key, any click on a creature will be interpreted as a slap, and punish the creature.|
If you just type on the keyboard, a speech bubble will appear. This is how you communicate with your creatures. If you just type a sentence, such as 'eat fruit', then every creature in earshot will hear that. So long as they understand the words, they'll consider performing that action. If you wish to address a sentence to a single Norn, you can prefix the sentence with the creature's name - so 'Alice eat fruit' will be directed to the Norn named Alice.
If you bring up a speech bubble by accident, press the backspace button a few times until it disappears.
