there's almost no readme required, tutorial will teach you most of the stuff you need to know, but i'll give overview for the keys.
as you know, bk3 has stages, each are 3 levels, including boss level, most of the times, anyway. each level has certain challenges, for example one of them could have a challenge to survive and destroy all enemy's, while another has the same challenge, but with keeping your partner, carla, alive, you won't get to it in quite a while, though.
tab, this brings up a status menu, it has options to check your stats, weapons, quit stage, game settings, etc.
if you go into status menu, you will see your health, defense, level, your hp, etc etc.
q tells your location/how high your up, the first number is your location as you move forward, second number is how high your up, so if you hear 30-0, you'll know that your at 30, and on the ground, because the number says 0.
w key is impordent, it allows yo u to pick a weapon to use, so if you want to use short sword, you press w, and select short sword from your list.
now, picking your weapons could be boring, so if your in the weapon menu, select a weapon, and you can press 1 or 2 on it, it will be set as your favorite weapon, so say you set short sword to weapon 1, next time, you can just hit 1, and it will be selected for you.
e key is not really impordent, but i'll tell you about it anyway, it has a combat log thing where you can see how much damage you did/took, and how much xp you got from the kill. if you press home in the combat log, you'll see your exp and amount of how much you need to level, i said e is not impordent? i lied a bit, it is impordent, later on.
r switches the mode on the weapons, only some weapons, though.
y tells your movement points, or stamana. it becomes really impordent later on, because some weapons use it, a lot, like the megatun hammer.
i is really, really impordent if you want to stay alive. it opens your inventory, not all of your items, but items that will heal you such as rice balls, mushrooms, piece of light, etc etc.
o key will turn on something called sonar. sonar is a handy thing if you want to know if something is above or to the left/right of you. you cant get it in the beggining of the game, but you can buy it after beeting stage 4.
i think that's all for top keys, let's move down a bit.
a. allows you to skip through storyline if you have listened through it already or just want to get on with the fighting.
s key will bring up your armor menu, if you have any. armors could be really handy, if you select one from your list by pressing enter on it, if you press s again, you'll see how much hp it has left. yes, armors brake. armors have there own hp and defense. and with each hit there hp goes down till it reaches 0. at that time, armor brakes, causing you 30 seconds of penalty not being abl e to access items and taking 4x damage from everything, so for example, if enemy hits you for 100 damage without penalty, it will hit you for 400 damage with penalty on. armors can be life savers, or they can be the cause of your death.
d is look for objects thing. it will tell you if any enemy's are nearby, or any objects, at the top of the menu is your position, and it works the same as your q key. so for example, if you hear door at 30-0, you'll know that the door is on the ground, at location 30. press enter or ascape to get out of there.
f key won't do anything till you reach stage 8-4, you will get something called magic hook and you can hook onto platforms above you with the f key, this is really impordent.
g is sordof look around thing, you can use up, down, right, or left arrows to scan what's above, below, to the right, or to the left of you. it's called camera, and it becomes really, really impordent later.
h tells your hitpoin ts, you don't want it to reach 0, ellse you'll hear a scream from your person and the stage will be over, causing you to restart the level again. the good thing is that you won't lose any items if you die.
l key only works when you have some level up points to spend, more on level up points in tutorial. while in the menu, use your up and down arrow keys to select the stat you want to asign the points to, then press right arrow to asign some points to it, press and hold if you want to put multiple points into it. but what if you have like 500 level points? press enter on the stat, type in the number, then press shift enter and eather hit ascape and select yes to save stat changes, no to cancel, or go all down through the menu till you reach confirm.
x key will bring up your strategy items list, strategy items are items that will give you some help, such extra speed, though they only work for a short time, and when you activate an item, you cant ac tivate another one till the first one runs out.
c key is your colection items, though most of then are junk, you can see how much gold coins/ammo for weapons/some crafting stuff you have on it.
v will do same thing as f, but down, so you can grapple down with the v key but only after you beet the game for the first time.
space, duh, uses a weapon, .
left and right walks, right walks forward while left walks backwards.
up jumps. please note, maximum you can jump is 4 squares to the left or right without a speed boost.
down uses a shield, press and hold down arrow key to block attacks with your shield, just watch for the shields hp.
control key. if your low on your movement, which you'll know if you walk a bit slower or the alarm starts going off, will make you walk slower. if you played bk2, control key makes you run in the game, you ca n change it in the options menu if you want to use that settings.
enter, goes through storyline and blah blah, but i'm pretty sure you know that already.
that's it, enjoy, and tutorial might help quite a bit but there won't be all keys like i posted.
