User Interface

From Mabinogi World Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The User Interface, or UI, is the main hub through which a player interacts with the game. It consists of windows, systems, and clickable icons.


The main gamebar.
1-Menu options 2-HP,MP, Stamina and Hunger 3-Menu Bar 4-Current level and EXP. 5-Minimize bar 6-Other features
The minimized game bar.

The Gamebar is where the player can adjust and see all other options of the User Interface. It defaults to the bottom center of the screen, but it can be dragged and moved.

  • Minimizing or maximizing the Gamebar while it is floating in another area on the screen will automatically put it back to the bottom center.
  • If the Gamebar is moved in a certain radius of its original position, it will go back where it was.


See the respective pages when applicable for more information.

You may press the Windows key on your keyboard to quickly open it.

The main menu optoins.
  • Change Channel: Move to another channel within the same server.
  • Screenshot Mode
  • Mabinogi NA's Homepage
    • It will open in an in-game browser.
  • Bard Bulletin Board
  • Options: Here are other options such as visual options, chat bar customization and hotkey settings.

Screenshot Mode

UI - Screenshot Mode info.png

You can press the Prtsc, or Print Screen button on your keyboard to automatically save a screenshot of the game, which will then go into your {Documents Path}\Mabinogi\Screenshot folder by default.

However, you can make use of the screenshot mode to rotate and adjust the camera view in a more precise way.

  • The camera will stay fixed while the mode is active. Moving your character around will not affect the camera.
  • While this mode is active, other characters will not appear transparent if near you.
  • Press the up or down arrows to move the camera up or down.
    • Press the mouse's right button at the same time to zoom in or out in a slow pan.
  • You can make use of the mouse's right button to drag the camera across larger distances.
  • Roll the mouse wheel to zoom in or out.
  • Press the mouse wheel and move your mouse to move the camera's angle.
  • You can press both the mouse's right button and mouse wheel for a faster drag.
  • You can move the camera well past the map's limits.
    • The game may not render the map at this point if the camera is too far.
      • If you happen to get the camera out of bounds, exiting screenshot mode will focus back on your character once more.
  • Tip: Allow for your range of vision option to be at maximum if you wish to take screenshots of landscapes.
  • While in screenshot mode, players, NPCs, animals, monsters and other entities will only appear if they are within your character's range of view, regardless of camera position.
  • Pressing 'OK' on the pop-up message will automatically save a screenshot of your game.
    • However, you may instead make use of CTRL+N to hide names, and \ to hide the user interface, then press your PRTSC button on your keyboard to achieve an UI-less screenshot.
      • There is no way to remove the 'Mabinogi' watermark at the bottom right of the screenshot once taken.

Menu Bar

See the respective pages when applicable for more information.

Menu bar.png

The Menu Bar in Mabinogi consists of several in-game menus. From left to right, these are:

Character Info

Character window set on the general overview.

The character info window is where the player can view all informations relative to the character. The default hotkey to see it is C.

Friends List

The Friends list, with collapsed groups.
  • The Friends list can be opened by pressing the default hotkey F.
  • You can organize friends by Groups. To add a Group, right click on a Group Name and press the "Add Group" button.
    • You can change or delete the group at any time.
    • By default, there are only two groups: "ETC." and "Blacklist"
  • You can add friends by right-clicking on the person you want to add and click "Add Friend."
    • Alternatively, you can use the Friend List option to add friends, provided you know their name.
    • You may add friends from other servers.
    • It is possible to add friends that are currently offline. The invitation will be received by the friend to be added upon their next log in.
    • Newly added friends will automatically appear in the "ETC." group.
  • You can message friends that are online through Mabinogi by double left-clicking on their name, or by right-clicking the name and press the "Send Message" button.
  • You can have a conversation with multiple friends at the same time by double-clicking on the empty space before the other player's name in the chat message, and select people to add to the conversation.
    • You can only add online players.
    • The players who will join the chat will only see the conversation from since the moment they join.
    • When the players close the chat message, they will leave the group conversation and must be manually added back to join again.
    • If the person is offline, you can only send Notes to the player.
  • You can block people through the Friend List. When you are online, the person that is blocked will not see you online.
  • You can enter a player's Homestead through the friend list, if they are in the same server as you.
  • Notes are similar to a Mailbox, except notes may contain 200 characters, but may not contain items and they are completely free to send.


The blacklist is a means of blocking another player's appearance and activity.

  • Blacklisting a player will cause them and their chat to disappear from view.
    • However, the blacklisted person is still able to see the blacklister, provided they did not blacklist back.
    • Notes can still be sent regardless of blacklist status.
  • The Blacklist shares the same number limit as the Friends List.

Guild List

  • The Guild list can also be accessed from the Messenger.
  • The player must be part of a Guild in order to access the system.
  • The Guild home option will not be available from the messenger if the Guild leader does not have active Premium service.

  • The course will be shown in light blue on the minimap with flags as the set points to reach.
    • You may use Shift+Click to set multiple points to the destination.

  • You do not have to search starting with the first letter of the NPC; the search function looks through every character in a NPC's name.

Record Video

General Information

By clicking on the Record Video Button very bottom right of the screen a tiny window will show up. The window shows options such as start, stop, upload to YouTube, and upload automatically.

How to Record

  • Pressing "Start" on the Record Video window or the corresponding hotkey (by default, "Left CTRL + U") will allow the user to begin REC.png recording the game.
  • Up to 5 minutes of consecutive recording may be done.
    • After five minutes, the recording will automatically stop.
  • You may stop recording at any time by pressing "Stop" on the Record Video window or by toggling the hotkey.


  • Higher resolutions will increase the quality of the video, therefore making the file size larger.
  • Any sounds that are playing from an external program, such as Windows Media Player or a web browser, will be recorded as well as any sound playing from Mabinogi.
  • Recordings are saved in the "{Documents Path}\Mabinogi\Video" folder.

Uploading to YouTube

  • The game allows you to directly upload any recordings onto YouTube with less hassle.
    • To do so, press the button labelled "Upload to YouTube" on the recording window.
  • You must have a YouTube account and input your username and password in the respective fields.
  • This may take some time depending on your internet speed, the recording's file size, the server load, or YouTube being down for maintenance. It is common during uploading for the player not being able to type messages, load skills, or open any right-click menus.
  • It is not recommended to upload directly to YouTube through the game due to the large file size. Video files can take up to 2 GB in size and can slow down, not only the performance of the game, but other resources such as web browsing as well. It is highly recommended to convert the video into a better file such as ".MP4" before attempting to upload the video.
    • It is ill-advised to use "AUTO Upload" feature, as it often leads to issues with the associated YouTube account.
