Welcome To The Guide To ALT Codes I am Quirk X the maker of this guide. You may know that there are only certain alt codes that can be used in the game and if not you just found out:P. I decided to make this guide after skilling and I got bored. I then started to try out the alt codes, and now I am going to show you how to use alt codes, and the codes that work for the game. This is the second version of Guide To ALT Codes I am making this for the Mac users out there, and for expansion:).




____________________ The Guide To Alt Code News ____________________

#10 I have updated the guide with some colors to the main topics. I also added some links to jump to the main sections of the guide. I was going to link them all but the 2,000 character limit wouldn't allow it.

#9 This thread became a forum hot topic and was stickied for 2 weeks starting on page 82 and lasting until page 97.




Notes:
MAKE SURE YOU HAVE
NUM LOCK
ON!!! I know there isn't num lock on every computer (look at the Trouble shooting).

Some alt codes only work in the forums and some only work in the game. Also NOT all of the alt codes work through the RuneScape website.

Feel free to ask questions, I have my private message settings turned on. Any questions or comments will only help make the guide better.

HOW TO USE ALT CODES


The first thing we need to have is a sample code to make sure it works so you know if you are doing the alt codes correctly, this code will be 20 and will look like this .

GUIDE FOR A STANDARD KEYBOARD


The first thing you want to do is locate the "Alt" key, there should be two of them. They should be on either side of the space bar.
Now locate your number pad it should look like this (IT IS NOT THE STRAIGHT ROW OF NUMBERS)
[ # ] [ / ] [ * ] [ - ]
[ 7 ] [ 8 ] [ 9 ] [ + ]
[ 4 ] [ 5 ] [ 6 ] | . . |
[ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [enter]
[ 0 ] [ . ] [ ]

Now what you want to do is hold down one of the "Alt" keys and press the key 2 on the number pad then lift up that finger and then press the 0 key on the number pad and lift that finger up. Now take your finger off the alt key and the "" should show up.


GUIDE FOR LAPTOPS


Most laptops don't have the number pad to the right of your typing keys, but you still can use the alt codes. The first thing you want to do is locate the "Alt" button, It is to either side of the space bar. The second button you want to find is the "Fn" key, It is located by the ctrl key in the bottom left corner of your keyboard.
Now you want to locate The small blue numbers towards the right hand position of the keyboard. the numbers should be set up on these keys.
[ 7 ] [ 8 ] [ 9 ] [ 0 ]
[ U ] [ I ] [ O ] [ p ]
[ J ] [ K ] [ L ] [ ; ]
[ M ] [ , ] [ . ] [ ? ]

Now the little blue numbers will be lined up like this on those keys:
[ 7 ] [ 8 ] [ 9 ] [ / ]
[ 4 ] [ 5 ] [ 6 ] [ * ]
[ 1 ] [ 2 ] [ 3 ] [ - ]
[ 0 ] [ . .] [ . ] [ + ]

Now hold down the "Fn" key and hold down the "Alt" key. Now press the "K" (2 blue key) key lift up your finger and press the "M" (0 blue key) key and lift it up. Now lift your finger off the "Alt" key and "" should show up. You can take your last finger off the "Fn" key and continue typing your message.

ADVANCED ALT CODES SETUP


Thanks to: Chkakoo4

Advanced alt codes allow you to use alt codes without typing in the numbers all the time. All you have to do is hold down the right alt key and type on your keyboard but there are a few steps we have to take to get there first so before we get too far I will start from the beginning.

*Warning*
This is optional and only YOU are responsible if something goes wrong.(there isn't much of a risk;))

This works for MOST systems.

The first thing you will want to do is open your Control Panel. From there you will want to click on the "DATE, TIME, LANGUAGE, and REGIONAL OPTIONS". The next step you want to take is by clicking on the "ADD OTHER LANGUAGES", and a new screen will pop up. Make sure The tab is on languages and under the "text services and input languages" box click on "DETAILS". A new screen will pop up, make sure you are on the settings tab. Now click on the "ADD" button. On this new small screen there will be two things you can change... You will want to click on the "KEYBOARD LAYOUT/IME LAYOUT. Now click the down arrow and find "UNITED STATES-INTERNATIONAL" and click on it. (because this one has the most alt codes on it). Now click "OK" Now in the "DEFAULT INPUT LANGUAGE" box change click the down arrow and make it "UNITED STATES INTERNATIONAL". You have two options from here either click apply and test it out in-game, or click OK to all the pages and exit out of Control Panel. If you clicked apply and like it just click OK and exit out of Control Panel.


Now that it is all set, by your clock on your computer screen click the little keyboard and click united states international, this is how you can change back and forth between the different types of keyboard settings.

continued...

NOTE: if you don't like this you can just follow the steps again to the same place, but instead of clicking on the "ADD" button click on "UNITED STATES-INTERNATIONAL" then click the "REMOVE BUTTON" then click apply and It will be back to normal If you messed up anytime you can just exit out of it and start over or quit;).




HOW TO USE ADVANCED ALT CODES




After you have finished the " ADVANCED ALT CODES SETUP the first thing you want to do is locate the right ALT key, It is located just to the right side of the space bar. Now hold down the Right ALT key and make sure you are in the game or on some form of writing document. Then you can start typing on your keyboard while you are holding down the right alt, some alt symbols should show up.
There are also a few tricks with this, you can hold the right alt and the shift key down to capitalize some of the symbols, or get others to show up. You can also have the caps lock on and hold down the right alt to capitalize the codes.

There are also tricks with the vowels. All that you have to do is hit these keys, then hit your vowel and it will make the symbol (NO ALT NEEDED).

` (to the left of the 1 key)
~ (shift+ key to the left of the 1 key)
' (apostrophe key)
" (quotation key)
^ (shift+6)
