1~3 Group Selection
Recall a previously created group
8~0 Target Selection
Select wich one of your characters should be targeted by the launched skill (exemple : Healing). 8 is first character, 9 is second and 0 is the third.

Exemple about how to use groups : You can create a group with your attacking characters, one with your healer and a group with all your characters. Then, when you get into a fight, call the healer and put him in keep mode, call your attacking characters and make them do what you want while the healer keeps healing. Once you're done, select the 3rd group (with everybody) and move all your characters.

There are of course many other uses (separate range/melee, magical/physical, etc...)

/hide on(off) Hide/Unhide your characters (but monsters can still attak you and other players still see you :p)
/navcam on(off) Enable/Disable camera move. The camera won't follow your characters anymore and you have to use keyboard to manipulate it
