+
== Downloading ==
+
 
+
Firstly, [http://minetest.net/download.php download Minetest] for your operating system and extract it somewhere you can access it.
+
 
+
== Installing ==
+
 
+
Installation will differ depending on your operating system. Here are instructions for each OS:
+
 
+
=== Windows Installation ===
+
 
+
Open the extracted folder and look for the '''bin''' folder. Open '''bin''' and run '''minetest.exe'''.
+
 
+
=== OS X Installation ===
+
 
+
Open the extracted folder and run the .app.
+
 
+
=== GNU/Linux Installation ===
+
 
+
If you can, download the version already compiled for your distribution of GNU/Linux. If you can't find one, you can compile it yourself from [https://github.com/minetest/minetest here].
+
 
+
== Playing ==
+
 
+
Now that you have it installed you can either; play singleplayer, play on a local server or play online by connecting to a server.
+
 
+
=== Play Singleplayer ===
+
 
+
To play singleplayer simply '''create''' a world and click '''Play'''.
+
 
+
You can choose minetest_game or minimal development test. While minetest_game is just the normal game, minimal development test is a start with some resources and a Tester Tool.
+
 
+
=== Play Online ===
+
 
+
[[File:Password.PNG|thumb|250px|The select password screen]]To play online you must enter a username, a password for yourself, and the server address (and port). If it is your first time connecting to that server it will create a player for you with your chosen username. Using a password is strongly recommended to stop others griefing your character.
+
 
+
Creating a password/account is done by:
+
#Login to a server (it can be local, but not singleplayer) '''without a password''' (this is for the first time setup only)
+
#Once connected to the server, press Esc and click the "Password" button.
+
#Enter your desired password here, leaving the "Old Password" box empty.
+
#You have now created a Minetest account! To log in with this name in the future you must use your chosen password.
+
 
+
=== Basic Controls ===
+
 
+
''Most of these can be changed in the "Change Keys" menu. For a more complete list of controls, see [[Controls]].''
+
 
+

+
 
+
'''W/A/S/D''': Move<br />
