I just started playing Realm of the Mad God on Steam. The intro video shows the map rotating as players move around it, but I can't find any key (or key maps) which do this.

Is it possible to do in the Steam version?

Check the options. There's an option to set the map's default angle to 45 degrees (default) or 0 degrees as well as some options to change hotkeys and there's where you'll find the defaults for rotating the map (which I don't know off the top of my head but I believe they're Q and E). You have to unlock the map for rotation in the options though before you can use Q and E, this is of course assuming that those are the right keys to do it with.

Ah! I hadn't found the options panel. (It's where the "Nexus" button is when you're inside the Nexus.) – dlras2 Feb 29 '12 at 3:09
Thank you so much. Having the minimap at a different angle than the ingame map was quite annoying. – jSepia Jul 8 '12 at 6:00
