3030MUX Training

There are over 140 commands that can be used to control a unit on 3030MUX. Fortunately, we have them all documented right here for when you need them. You can also type HELP (all capital letters) inside a Mech to get basically the same list. You do not need to memorize all of these to be able to pilot a unit, but you will definately learn them as you go along. Most of these commands have shortened versions, called macros.

Here is what all the symbols mean:

[ ] - Optional
< > - Required
| - Seperates different choices for arguments
