Keyboard Shortcuts

Author/Contributors: Jim "Red Phoenix" Chamberlin

A commonly overlooked tool in games are the keyboard shortcuts.  Unless you master the shortcuts in some first-person shooter titles, for example, your character stands a less of a chance of winning.  Remembering the shortcuts can often separate a great player from a decent player.  Keyboard shortcuts are easier and quicker ways of getting a task done.  Most of us use the keyboard far more than the mouse, so it's more comfortable, easier, and faster to use the keyboard to do a task.  Below is a list of the various keyboard shortcuts used in RollerCoaster Tycoon and its expansion packs.
