This page should be updated due to game changes.
Reason: update for latest photon UI keys and disabling 3D graphics

There are a number of keyboard shortcuts / keyboard controls that offer alternatives for mouse control of the EVE client. These can be found in the client's Configuration menu and can be re-assigned to suit a player's preference.


The defaults listed are current as of Odyssey 1.1.1. Bindings listed with the Lock.png are not able to be modified.
