Left clicks

  • On portrait will select the party member as the active one.
  • Drag&drop of items.
  • On map center (Zzz) it will wait for 5 minutes.
  • All kinds of interactions and selections.

Right clicks

  • On portrait will open the inventory.
  • On buttons in map view will toggle between move arrows and actions.
  • In 2D map view will show a crosshair cursor which can be used for interactions. Or it aborts an already active action cursor.
  • In 3D map view:
    • On the corners (turn arrows) it will perform 90° or 180° rotations.
    • On the center (Zzz) it will trigger interactions with a nearby map object.
  • On item it will pickup all the items without asking for the amount.
  • When dragging an item it will reset the item back to its source slot.

Mouse wheel

  • Scrolling the wheel on 2D maps changes the cursor.
  • Clicking the wheel or middle mouse button on 2D maps will show the crosshair or mouth cursor.
  • If a scrollbar is present, it can be controlled by the mouse wheel as well.

Configuration can be configured ingame but also via a configuration file. See Configuration for more details.


You can find the full changelog here. You can also look at the releases. They have more details in general.

Custom music

You can use your own music with Ambermoon (e.g. the Atari music or the remixes from Matthias Steinwachs). For more details read here.
I also provide the Atari tracks here. Just extract the mp3 to a folder called "music" next to the main executable to enjoy the music. Note that not all tracks were converted to Atari so only 13 out of 32 tracks are available.
