The official guide from the developer.
Ring Miner has two modes: You are either flying the lander, or driving the rover. In each mode, you also control the camera.
It is recommended that you use a gamepad to play Ring Miner, although keyboard+mouse control is available as well.
While this button is pressed, the analog sticks will control the camera:
LEFT STICK to track in/out.
RIGHT STICK to change orbit angle and elevation angle.
When the left bumper is pressed, the on-screen gamepad guide will show you the functions for the camera.
When using mouse+keyboard, you can control the camera by right-button dragging with the mouse, and the scroll wheel to zoom.
RIGHT STICK to control the PITCH (UP/DN) and the ROLL (L/R).
LEFT STICK to control the THRUST (FW/BW) and also control the YAW (L/R).
DPAD controls both ASCEND/DESCEND UP/DN and CRABBING L/R.
Press (B) to open/close the BAY doors.
Press (X) to SWITCH to rover control: Note the lander will drop to the surface.
LEFT STICK for THROTTLE.
RIGHT STICK for STEERING.
(A) to activate mining LASER.
(X) to SWITCH to lander control.
(B) to open/close BAY door of the lander.
(Y) to lower/raise the laser TURRET.
RIGHT BUMPER will RECOVER a flipped upside-down rover.
Before you can start mining, you need to land your transport ship on a flat piece of terrain.
Please note that when you switch if the lander, and fire up the rover, gravity will pull the vehicles towards the center of the rock.
So make sure that the lander’s bottom faces the center of the planetoid when you press (X) to switch to rover control.
Once landed, and switched to rover, you need to open the BAY door with (B), after which, you can simply drive the rover out of the cargo bay.
Once out of the cargo bay, press (Y) to raise your laser TURRET. You can optionally change the laser aim with left-button mouse clicks. But digging straight ahead will work fine as well.
When it is time to leave the planetoid, you need to drive your rover back into the lander bay, but make sure you have your turret lowered for that!
Once inside the bay, press (B) to close the doors, and (X) to fly off with the transport ship.
When you do so, please include your log file, which you can find at:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\*\1461410\local\ringminerlog.txt
Make sure your OpenGL driver is up to date. And that you have an OpenCL driver installed as well.
