This section shows the default control scheme for the game, it is also shown in one of the in game help menus. Note that you can customize your controls by running the program SETUP.EXE or by modifying the DUKE3D.CFG file.

I use the following config file: DUKE3D.CFG . This file uses more common control schemes, such as the WASD movement and closer keys for the RPG, Devastator, and so on - you may find it useful. To use it, simply make a backup of your current config file and put this one in it's place.
