Title: [FF8PC-Steam] FF8 Controller Buttons v2.0 (Compatible with FF8_Buttons Patch)
Post by: Mcindus on 2015-01-13 12:27:32
FF8 Controller Buttons v2.0 - by MCINDUS
For use with the STEAM version of Final Fantasy VIII
**FINALLY! An UPDATE! 9/07/2018**


This mod replaces the horrible "B1, B2, B3, etc." Button Icons with the proper Playstation and Xbox360 Buttons

***To use this mod, you MUST install Tonberry and SeeD Reborn***
***THIS MOD IS NOW COMPATIBLE WITH SHUNSQ'S FF8 BUTTONS PATCH!***
*Comes with Xbox360, PS3, PS4, DS4, SPC, and Steam controller files for use with Shunsq's controller mod*

-If using a PSX/PS2 default setup controller, Shunsq's mod, Tonberry 2.04, and Seed Reborn are all you need to get going! This mod is only needed if you want a different button setup, or you aren't using Shunsq's mod!

Get Tonberry HERE (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15945.0)
Get SeeD Reborn HERE (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15320.0)
Get Shunsq's FF8_Buttons mod HERE (http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=18158.0)

Download:
FF8 Controller Buttons v2.0 (https://goo.gl/7oM68Z)


*HID Buttons are for use ONLY with Mapping interfaces (Xpadder, JoytoKey, AutoHotKey, Pinnacle, etc):
*Using the HID interface buttons is destructive to the Green Text in the game - be warned, but the green text is BARELY used, so it shouldn't interfere with gameplay.

Directions:
1. Download and Install Tonberry and SeeD Reborn
2. Download the Controller mod above, unpack it and open the folder you need!
3. Move the 'sy' folder (OR 'ic' folder if using Shunsq's mod) into your 'textures' folder in the FINAL FANTASY VIII app folder. (steamapps/common/FINAL FANTASY VIII/textures/)
4. Merge the folders when asked
5. Enjoy!

***Disable the STEAM overlay in 'steam/settings/in-game' to prevent crashes!***
This should work with ALL versions of SeeD Reborn!

The only glitch is the "A" button showing up next to the "R Stick" button (or Triangle next to Start in PSX version) - this is due to the button being identified as "B10", where it pulls 1 and 0 for it's image.  If this can be changed in the future to "button 10" being represented but it being renamed "button 0", the glitch can be fixed -- otherwise, we just have to live with it ;) 
This glitch is not present in the HID version, but it's more destructive to the green text.  give/take.

After you installed Tonberry and Seed, did you then overwrite the sysfld01_17.png and sysfld00_17.png files from the Xbox/PSX Download link?  Next question - did you update hash1map.csv from the Tonberry main page?  Last question: are you using the English version of the game? If not, you can still use this mod, you just need different hashcodes available on the SeeD Reborn thread.  You have to have the updated hash1map from Omzy's Tonberry page or the MCINDUS Hashmap v2.1 from HorizonPack v2.1 to use this mod.

Let me know if this helps!

Make sure you're not using SweetFX along with Tonberry.  Also - make sure the MOST recent hashmap file is from MCINDUS Hashmap v2.1.  Could you post a screenshot of your controller configuration window from within the menu?  That would help me figure out whats going on.  Also - could you post a screenshot of your FINAL FANTASY VIII folder from within "/steamapps/common/FINAL FANTASY VIII/"?  Last question:  Is your OS disk on the C drive? If not, you will need to change it to whatever letter it IS on in the prefs.txt file within the "tonberry" folder in "/steamapps/common/FINAL FANTASY VIII/tonberry/"

Yea so I cannot get the button icons shown on screen to match up to what its actually on the controller.  I've spent over an hour trying to figure this out.  A quick write up could help, unless I getting something wrong.  The icon for "X" is showing up as "Triangle",  "Circle" seems to be correct, "Square" is basically not used.  Thats all I have discovered so far.

It's actually assigning the buttons B1, B2, B3, B4, etc. and not X, C, V, G, H, etc.  Is your gamepad supported by the application or are you using a HID interface like Pinnacle or Xpadder?  I would release a version for the keyboard buttons for those of you who are using them, but it would break all of the Green Text in the game, and currently, the only thing broken in the Green text is a missing "B".  Granted, there are barely any instances of green text in the game aside from the buttons...

Why thank you.    :mrgreen:

There you go! Download in the main post for PSX and Xbox buttons for use with DS4Windows, Xpadder, Pinnacle, ControllerMate, whatever.  These HID links are for anyone who maps their controller instead of using the default setup.

EDIT  I totally screwed up the file naming in the first release.  Please re-download to use the REAL version! sorry guys!

So for anything use DS4, inorder for the buttons to show up correctly with your controller, you have to map your "X" button to x key, "Square" to s key, "Triangle" to c key, and "Circle" to v key.  Still working on the green B1, B2, B3, B4 to not show up.

Yeah, those are default keyboard keys - so if you map to the normal keyboard keys, it should work great. Just look in the keyboard configuration in the launcher and copy the keybinds.
If you plug in your controller after you start the launcher, it might fix the problem.  If not, there's a workaround on the forums somewhere... if you go to the Steam forums, you can find a guide for AutoHotKey for FF8 where a guy explains how to turn off your normal button recognition if you have to.

After thinking about it... try to search your computer for the ff8input.cfg file and change all of the joystick button assignments (like B1, B2, B3, etc) into blanks.. then make the file read only. i think thats the fix.

I'm using ds4windows and i've tried everything in the guide and in the comments that you recommend to get the HID pack to work. no matter what i try everytime i go to customize controller in game i get the green b1-b10 letters. if i press a button on the keyboard (backspace, enter, etc...) the playstation icons will flash until i let the button go. it also does not let me save these settings.

Does Ds4windows map the keyboard inputs to the buttons?  If you're still getting B1, B2, etc, it's because the game is seeing the controller as the input option.  You can always wait until FFVIII boots and THEN plug in your controller and start DS4windows, but that fix kinda sucks. 
If you still see B1-B10, try the non-HID version (regular version).
If this STILL doesn't fix your problem, there's a longer fix for this issue below but I wouldn't do it until you try the other options.

Do this part ONLY if you're mapping keyboard inputs to a controller using a HID mapper.

In a file explorer go to:
\My Documents\Square Enix\FINAL FANTASY VIII Steam
Edit the file called ff8input.cfg
Change the numbers below the Joystick section to all be 0s so that it looks like this

Joystick
1. "Select" 0
2. "Exit" 0
3. "Misc" 0
4. "Menu" 0
5. "Toggle" 0
6. "Trigger" 0
7. "RotLt" 0
8. "RotRt" 0
9. "Start" 0
10. "Select" 0
11. "Up" 0
12. "Down" 0
13. "Left" 0
14. "Right" 0

Save the file and then right click on it and open it's properties.  Make the file read only.  Now the game won't try to use its own settings for the controller nor show controller buttons (B1-10) in game.  Try not to open the Controller settings window after you make this fix or you may have to repeat it.

I tried this and it worked for the button images, however the left analog stick nolonger functions.


If you still see B1-B10, try the non-HID version (regular version).

when i try this option all the images are swapped (i.e. "x" shows as "r2" etc...)

i also tried this method. the problem i'm having is lets say i finish a battle and the bottom of the screen says "press 'x' to confirm" it will show as "press 'B10' to confirm" but if i hold the "enter" key or "backspace" key on my keyboard the correct psx button shows up. I can try to do shadowplay to make a video if that helps.

I just started playing the steam version of FFVIII again today and grabbed this mod along with a few of your others.  It works great except that I'm getting X/O and Triangle/Square showing as the other (so X shows as O, O shows as X, etc.)  I'm using a generic brand PS3 controller, Tonberry Enhanced 2.02, and the Controller Buttons for PSX linked in the first post.  Also using SeeD Reborn 3.2, Horizon 2.1, LunarCry 1.2, and Tripod 1.1.  I restored the Sy folder back to the SeeD Reborn versions and the B1, B2, etc show correctly for their corresponding buttons.

Hey there...
Any way to make this work with sony ps3 controler and ScpServer?

This should work for any setup anyone has.  The regular version is if you didn't have to 'assign' your buttons (for example, if you're using a proper controller driver)  and the HID interface options are for people with controllers that don't, and have to bind the keyboard keys to the buttons on their pad.  If the issues you're having are caused by DirectInput/Xinput and ScpServer conflicts, then there is a big workaround found here -
http://forums.qhimm.com/index.php?topic=15905.msg224289#msg224289
just make sure that you make the file 'read only' because if you don't, every time you open controller settings, it will force the default settings back into the ff8input.cfg file.

I just started playing the steam version of FFVIII again today and grabbed this mod along with a few of your others.  It works great except that I'm getting X/O and Triangle/Square showing as the other (so X shows as O, O shows as X, etc.)  I'm using a generic brand PS3 controller, Tonberry Enhanced 2.02, and the Controller Buttons for PSX linked in the first post.  Also using SeeD Reborn 3.2, Horizon 2.1, LunarCry 1.2, and Tripod 1.1.  I restored the Sy folder back to the SeeD Reborn versions and the B1, B2, etc show correctly for their corresponding buttons.

Hm.  Not sure why your controller has the Buttons swapped.  Are you using the default controller driver for that generic controller?  Or are you using a program like Xpadder, JoyToKey, etc?

The HID version shows the B1-10 inputs.
The non-HID has the buttons swapped (shows triangle for confirmation for example).

I never assigned buttons in driver, windows or ff8.

This seems like it might be a button layout issue for the PS3 controller.... it looks like the button number assignments are different for the PS1/PS2 controllers than for the PS3?  That's really stupid, sony.  Do you guys have a button 'number' layout?  Can you just describe for me EXACTLY what your issue is (which buttons are swapped), I will make a special PS3 version of the mod for you :)  (Is X swapped for O for both of you?)

I'm useing ScpServer, same link from eXistenZe. His button layout is the same way as mine too.

PS3 controller connected over USB

Circle -> Circle
Triangle -> Square
Square -> X
X -> Triangle

This is what I see when I access custom controlls in FF8. When I press Triangle the button gets assigned as Square.
I'm useing the default settings over the launcher.

If I don't touch the custom settings at all and leave it on normal I see "press Triangle" after a battle, even tho it should be X. It's pretty confusing.

I also have JoytoKey running, but the Dpad is the only thing I have mapped onto the Keyboard(Arrow Keys), the rest isn't mapped and default. This way I can use the Analogstick and the Dpad at the same time.

OMW to work -- will fix the analog sticks vs l2/r2 when I get home.  That glitch where it shows an 'extra' X button is unavoidable unless you use the HID version.

Oh my this is funny... so I just had to use the Xbox button locations from my Xbox file and place the PSX buttons in -those- locations.  Anyway, look in the OP for the new file!  Thanks for your help, guys!

we thank you <3  ;)

Don't what has caused the issue, but I got to the part where Rinoa explains the train mission to you and parts of the wording is replaced with the assigned button symbol. I thought I took a screenshot but it looks like I didn't.

I'm trying to use photoshop to edit the png for FF8_ControllerButtons_PS3_Scp Im trying to remove right stick and left stick and replace them with R2 and L2 But I don't know the first thing about photoshop even though i bought it for my mom way back then.

Im using DS4Windows tool by Jays2Kings to emulate the 360 controller with my ps4 controller but the buttons are wrong with the FF8_CB_PSX so that doesnt work.

I'm using the standard default controller config that the FF8 steam settings uses when you hit default and using the mapper to swap the right stick and left stick with the L2 and R2 on my ps4 controller.

Can someone edit the FF8_ControllerButtons_PS3_Scp and pull the R2 and L2 images from FF8_CB_PSX file and put them where the Right and left sticks are or tell me how to use photoshop so i can do it myself.

I edited it myself its passable for me to play although the right image doesn't line up with the left image well. oh well someone else can modify it and do it themselves.

I had a similar issue, my PC gamepad wasn't mapped the correct way,
and since I had to change it in the game option, the icon from this mod wasn't the right one.
(when I push the equivalent of "X" on my gamepad, the game said I was pushing Triangle etc...)

and I didn't want to use gamepad mapper, they all crash on my (clean) computer, anyway,

since I work with photoshop I tried to mod the mod's png, and it worked.

here the PSD (photoshop format) with some layers for the X, O, Square, triangle button.
you can make more if you want.

once edited you need to save the file in PNG ! (24-bit + transparency)

I made a video if that could help, but since I'm not really good at talking english I didn't spoke in it.

Hi, (sorry for bad English, it's second language to me)
Can anyone help me?
My controller is logitech f310 which the layout use the same as that ps3 spcserver.
But when I use pinnacle so that I can use analog and d-pad the same time. The button map for HID turn out real mess.
Though, I prefer PS buttons version (used PS1, PS2, PSP and never play xbox) with Japanese layout (O = confirm, X = cancel).
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v608/elektra/pnn1.png)
^My setting. There is something wrong on world map too. The start, select doesn't work right. Anyone can suggest about this? (I don't even know which button to press and call out the mini map  :-\)

In game layout. You can see none is match from my setting above.

Any help/suggestion is OK. Even just telling me to replace which button with another or text in which file is fine. I appreciate all.
Thanks.

Ah, yes. Hello.

I'm a new member to the forums, and I came upon this Mod while searching for them for the Steam Version of Final Fantasy VIII, and I was very impressed with it.

However I am having a difficult time making the correct adjustments, and would like some advice. I'm not using an Xbox or PlayStation Controller but a Logitech F310 USB Controller (http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/f310-gamepad (http://gaming.logitech.com/en-us/product/f310-gamepad)), which uses Direct X Input, same as an Xbox Controller, and no I am not using any HIDs with it.

I figured the Xbox Texture would be what I needed, but it didn't work, so I switched to the PlayStation one and found that it does. But am having the same issue where it's all scrambled.

I tried doing the Photoshop Fix that this user did:

And off course, thanks all the modder out there.

But it did not unfortunately fix the problem.

I scoured this entire thread hoping that someone had a solution for people using a Logitech USB Controller and nothing like Xpadder, Pinnacle, Joy2Key, or anything like that, but found nothing.

So I apologize for bumping a very old thread, but I was wondering if someone could help me solve my problem here.

Thank you in advance, and cheers. :lol:

I accidentally made some changes through the config menu in the battle controls. Does anyone know if you set the controls through default that the battle controls will revert to default too? Anybody have a recommended 360 controller layout for the map or battle too?

Right, I am sorry.

The problem is despite doing the Photoshop Fix for the Non-HID PlayStation Set, the buttons are still scrambled.

X = Triangle, Square = O, Triangle = X, etc.

Again, as I've described I'm using a Logitech F310 USB Controller with no input devices such as Pinnacle, XPadder, Joy2Key, etc., just the controller flat out connected to my laptop.

I was hoping there was a solution for those not using an Xbox360, PS3/4 Controller, or USB Controller not using an HID, but have yet to find one.

I apologize for not being clear last post. :(

I also use f310. But with Pinnacle. Thought, I tried the patches for all, with and without pinnacle. The layout you need is the same as PS3 pack. Try applying that.

Works fine on my end... So that's kinda odd for it to only work on older versions for you. Huh.

The real question is whether everything works without the mods installed and trying to use the music. Since I use RaW, I have no way of knowing this or not... Or if it does something to Tonberry or if the file you downloaded could be corrupted somewhere.

So SeeD Reborn works fine for you without this? I'd probably try a few other mods as well just to make sure if it's just this mod alone. At least that way we will know for certain. It's strange how some of the mods haven't been working for people lately...

But... The music and this mod together couldn't be causing that as far as I know. Are you sure that something didn't go wrong in the process of setting things up or that maybe some of the music files aren't corrupted? It could be crashing at certain songs. I would at least check the place you got them at and see if others are experiencing the same issues. There could be a number of things causing this.

do you think i should try installing the ps1 music files first before i install this mod to see if that will work

Might be worth a shot... And if all else fails, I'd probably try doing everything over from scratch. Tonberry, textures, and the music. And I'd also try and validate your game files(or whatever that process is) or uninstall/reinstall through Steam to make sure all the original files are in working order. And if you're still facing this problem...I'm at a loss. Then you might have to compromise on what you want to use.

Let me know if this works for you.  Otherwise, have you disabled the Steam Overlay?

You can probably use this with the older version of Tonberry just fine.  It uses the same codes and textures folders as SeeDReborn.  Just make sure you install SeeDReborn FIRST before you install the XBOX mod.  If you have continuing issues with the text or mods in the game, you can delete/reinstall the sy folder from SeeDReborn and then apply this mod.  Currently, only the 'newer' versions of Tonberry are compatible with other languages other than English.

I don't use SeeD Reborn, because it's not in italian, but I tried to use just the SeeD Reborn hashmap file, and now it works also on Tonberry 2.04.

Hello guys and thanks for all the mods you are doing! I love having the updates. I was wondering if someone could me sort a problem out. I'm using a DS4 controller just running under the default windows 10 drivers. Need need for a 2nd party software to use it! Anyways the only issue I'm having with the PSX buttons mod is that it has the main buttons swapped. X and O are swapped with each other and Square and Triagle as swapped for each other. Anyone have an idea how I can sort it out? Not sure how important this is but here are the button assingments as defined in the controller tool for windows:

X=Button 2
O=Button 3
Square=Button 1
Triangle=Button 4

Logitech controllers work two ways.

when in directinput mode, which is what you should use, they are mapped same as ps3 wired controller except home button is missing.

When you use them in xinput mode, they are mapped as an xbox 360 controller, which screws over directinptut games that can't map an axis as a button.

The proper solution for those users is to use directinput mode, to get the ability to press both triggers, and then use the ps3 setup with xbox icons.

Also did some testing of my own. seems you have to do two things.
1) define the buttons in the configurator so they match default ff8 controls. 
2) use this info to pick the icons.

not all ps2 usb adapters are even consistent.  they tend to not agree on buttons 5-12.

ps3/4 ARE consistent.

here's what i've worked out.

For ps3/logitech in dinput mode
button 1=square/X
button 2 =cross/A
button 3=circle/B
button 4=triangle/Y
button 5=L1/LB
Button 6=R1/RB
button 7=L2/LT
button 8=R2/RT
button 9=select/<
button 10=start/>
button 11=L3/left click (unused normally)
button 12=R3/right click (unused normally)
Button 13=home/none

Xbox off course there's an isue with the triggers. they can't be deteced by the game.

button 1=A
button 2=B
button 3=x
button 4=y
button 5=LB
button 6=rb
button 7=back
buton 8=start
button 9=left click
button 10=right click.

ps2 converters are USUALLY, from 1 to 12
triangle
circle
cross
square
l2
r2
l1
r1
select
start
l3
r3


but sometimes these get shuffled around.

while the first four are nearly always the same, sometimes l1 is before l2, and sometimes select and start are swapped. and sometimes select is swapped with l3 and start with r3.  there are variations. i don't have as many converters as i used to so i can't document all of these.  also sometimes they disagree on which axis the right analog gets mapped to.

Been trying to get this configuration to work for the past couple of days to no avail. Using DS4Windows, and Tonberry 1.61 with SeeDReborn v3.2. I merged the sy folders, and I believe that I got every necessary hashmap.

However, I still see B# for my controller config in the game... older posts didn't help. Any suggestions? :(

I suggest using Tonberry 2.04 - see if this fixes your problem.  If not, show me a screenshot of your sy folders and your hashmap folder, along with your parent tonberry folder.

Hi, I'm using a DS4, tried the PSX mapping, but X and circle are switched, so are square and triangle. I think this has to do with how Windows maps the buttons by default (square is button 1 in the control panel, x is 2, etc.). Is there an easy fix for this?

Just change the placements using an image editing software.
Tonberry looks for a specific place in the texture maps, so just replace the placement of X and O in the .png.

I edited this to use SNES Buttons. Well, A B X and Y at least. The rest of the buttons are still PSX buttons, including Start, Select, L1, L2, R1, R2. It's also not perfect, they've got weird bright and dark spots at the edges in game, but it's barely noticeable.

Use this if you're playing with one of those Buffalo/iBuffalo USB-SNES Controllers, but beware that, since they lack second shoulder buttons you'll have to use the keyboard if you want to run away or change camera modes on the worldmap.

You can also use this if you simply like the look of SNES buttons, but the layout will probably be wrong on any other controller. Here is a list of which USB-button corresponds to which In-Game button, if you'd like to give it a try by changing your controllers inputs to the ones below with an external program:

Spoiler: Mappings • show
Controller Button 1 -> A
Controller Button 2 -> B
3 -> X
4 -> Y
5 -> L1
6 -> R1
7 -> Select
8 -> Start
9 -> R2
10 -> L2


Installation works exactly like the others. Here's the download link:
Controller Buttons for SNES (https://www.dropbox.com/s/dt43t7jzj58gblj/FF8_CB_SNES.rar?dl=0)

And here's the GIMP Project file if anyone wants to try and do a better job, because after all, I'm an amateur and mostly made this for myself.

I have an issue here. Im using a PS3 controller with the normal drivers and ive downloaded the file and it works great. The only issue is when it comes to entering codes on the train as the circle and triangle buttons are the wrong way round, but if i go to the configuration menu it recognises them correctly. Is there a fix for this specific section of the game?

Hello guys and thanks for all the mods you are doing! I love having the updates. I was wondering if someone could me sort a problem out. I'm using a DS4 controller just running under the default windows 10 drivers. Need need for a 2nd party software to use it! Anyways the only issue I'm having with the PSX buttons mod is that it has the main buttons swapped. X and O are swapped with each other and Square and Triagle as swapped for each other. Anyone have an idea how I can sort it out? Not sure how important this is but here are the button assingments as defined in the controller tool for windows:

X=Button 2
O=Button 3
Square=Button 1
Triangle=Button 4

I have the same problem and couldnt fix it, the only way i guess is to edit by Photoshop and i never used PS ...  i guess am gonna have to try

You can also use GIMP for this issue, as well.  You just have to swap the buttons around for each other.  I will be updating this mod for use with SeeDReborn 3.2, 3.5, and YagamiLight's PSX text in the next few weeks, but until then, you can just swap those icons around.  Look for the 'green' text in the sysfld00 and sysfld01 folders in the 'sy' folder and modify however you like!

I quite literally registered just to post a bit of info on the subject here.

Most drivers for the DualShock 3 and/or 4 are based on the "ScpService". The creator of that didn't update it in a long while (the original thread for that is in the PCSX2 forums), so many people went from it and did their own things, such as DS4Windows for example. I'm personally using ScpToolkit by Nefarius mainly for its support of both DualShock 3 and 4 but also for its GUI, and lack of ads, but that's beside the point.
The point here being that all of them are effectively emulating the DualShock 3/4 as an Xbox 360 controller. In other words, you're using a DS3/4 but the Operating System sees it as an X360 controller, which naturally means all the programs do that as well. The main advantage of this is the compatibility that the aforementioned gamepad has on the Windows platform. The disadvantage... well, XInput is sometimes weird. Anyway, if the driver is done properly then the button mapping is exactly the same as on the x360 side, so copying the placement from that texture is all that's needed. I did that personally, in case someone wants to try that out, here it is (all credit goes to the relevant parties, I did only small "copy, paste, resize, position" job):
- http://imageshack.com/a/img922/8140/wIl27U.png
- http://imageshack.com/a/img921/7147/Enzda5.png

Those with sharp eyes may notice, that there are no "L2" and "R2" buttons there, and that's because you can't map them with the XInput in either FFVII or FFVIII in their Steam variants. Those particular buttons are not only analogue but also mapped on a single axis, which creates its own issues for the lazier implementations of the support for gamepads. That's why I replaced those with "L3" and "R3", which for those that are familiar with Playstation button schemes are nothing more than pressing the corresponding analog sticks.

I hope this small piece of info will result in a more "plug and play" experience for those that want those Playstation button prompts. Maybe also will benefit the next versions of this mod as well, who knows :P

Just in case anyone here is still struggling with the wrong buttons showing up like I was, I edited the file in GIMP to make it show up with X as confirm, O as cancel, Triangle as Menu, and Square as the triple triad challenge button.
(If it doesn't show up automatically, the first link is what my controls look like and the second link is the actual picture you should drop into the sy/sysfld00 folder.)
I'm using a Steam Controller with everything mapped to keyboard buttons and this works for me! Hope this helps others because I know I was frustrated at the buttons not showing up how I wanted them to.

Edit: When you save the image from imgur, make sure you save it as sysfld00_17 before you drop it into the sy/sysfld00 folder. It should save as PNG automatically but you'll need to set the name yourself.

I had the same problem too but I'm using the program DS4Windows so I managed make a unique controller profile which I called Final Fantasy VIII to change the controller's conversion to an XBOX 360 controller so that all the PS4 button graphics appear correctly in the game. I also fixed the problem with the dpad not responding at all by make them have the same controls as on the left stick and I changed L2, R2, share and options to where they should be in comparison to where they are on a PS1 controller.

The game runs perfectly but it still shows up at B1-B12. Gonna try to make it easier on myself and try the Lunatic Pandora package on a fresh install then retry the controller mod to see if that works out better.

Edit: Alright, after adding Lunatic Pandora on a clean install the buttons will show up in the config menu but *only* if I hold X. And if I tab to desktop then come back the screen will be "stuck" of a character model or the special characters page.

Hm.  That's strange behavior.... what version of the mod are you using?  A HID version or a standard one?  Give me all of the possible specifics... controller model, os version, etc.

As far as the alt-tab issue.. that happens due to the cache sometimes... you just have to alt tab a couple more times, and it should go away.  Mavirick and JeMaCheHi were working on a new version, but since Mav has completely vanished off the planet (hehe), we might be waiting on that forever.

I'm using the standard Xbox mod, controller model 1403, Windows 10 64 bit, and whatever Lunatic Pandora gave me.

No biggie about the alt-tab though, I just didn't know if there was a fix for it or not.

Edit:
Wait, can I use a wireless 360 controller with an adapter or does it have to be wired? Or does it not matter??

It shouldn't matter... but you have to make sure the controller is connected before you run the launcher.  It sounds like the issue you're having is due to the keyboard being recognized 'first'.  If everything is plugged in and connected before you run the launcher (not just the game), then it should work just fine.

It wasn't that but after removing it from E: and reinstalling to C: the mod seemed to work as intended. I'm not sure why it would do that but I'm in love with the controller mod now.

It looks like the nature of this mod will soon change!!!!

Very soon, Shunsq's PSX controller button fix will be -the- fix that people will want to use for FF VIII.  If you were to have any version of SeeDReborn, his mod would automatically give you the correct icons (since I've already replaced them, but had no way for the game to 'direct' to them until now) - and the only reason to have any version of -this- mod specifically would be if you wanted to have xbox360/ps3-4/snes buttons rather than the 'original' PSX buttons that come with SeeDReborn or the original game.  This version will also be good for anyone who uses a key-mapper for their controller.  Having said that, I can't wait!  WTG Shunsq!

Hey, There! Would it be possible to get instructions for adding xbox buttons for dummies?

Easiest way:
1.  Download Tonberry Enhanced 2.04 - put all of the contents in FINAL FANTASY VIII/
2.  Download the SeeDReborn hashmap.  You can find it on the Tonberry page as the second post (by me).
3.  Put it in FINAL FANTASY VIII/tonberry/hashmap --
4.  Download whichever xbox format you use (regular or keymapped)
5.  Put the 'sy' folder into the /FINAL FANTASY VIII/textures/ folder that you got from the tonberry download.

BAM.

Hi! Newbie here, I bought the Lunatic Pandora pack and I've been messing around with the mods, and I read up on this thread because I'm using DS4 with a ps4 controller and I was having so much trouble getting it to work. I finally managed to solve it (rather than using hexlaunch or plugging in the controller once the game is launched), I downloaded the PSX version of the files (so not the one for HID displays), and it would work, but the triangle/square and cross/circle buttons were swapped. I am very comfortable with Photoshop so all I did was flip the buttons round making sure they were all aligned in the same place, and now my buttons work great! I still can't get rid of the square button icon next to the START but I wouldn't want to experiment without knowing what I'm actually doing.  If anyone else is having the same issue, I've attached a link to dropbox so you can download the sy folder that has all the files corrected, I hope it also works out for someone else!

https://www.dropbox.com/s/y0xkb96kld8jzft/sy.7z?dl=0

PS. I have the DS4 profile as 'Default' and the Controller settings on the game as Default also. I'm not good at modding and fiddling with things, I just managed to scrape a solution and wanted to share in case anyone isn't confident with photoshop or editing programs.

I am using a 360 controller,

when i first played the game my escape from battle buttons were the left and right stick buttons. I messed around with the configs for a little but now I cant reset, every time I press right stick it exits the config and every time I press left stick it resets to defaults.

I suspect I am missing something obvious here as there must be a way to map these buttons (seeing as they were in the original layout) but I cant for the life of me figure it out.

Any idea whats going on?

Are you using the English version of the game?  If you are, are you using a standard controller or?  It should be fine to replace the contents of the folder, so you did fine there.

Also, do you have two FINAL FANTASY VIII/ folders or just one? if you have FINAL FANTASY VIII/FINAL FANTASY VIII/, or you have the mod installed on the wrong drive,  take all of the contents from the duplicate folder and drop it all into the main
/steamapps/common/FINAL FANTASY VIII/ folder.

can you show me a screenshot of your FINAL FANTASY VIII/ folder, your /tonberry folder, your tonberry/hashmap/ and your /textures/sy folder?

Hello mcindus,

I am also having the same problem as well but with the psx and psx hid buttons. I have checked and rechecked to make sure I installed them correctly as per the installation notes. But all mappings still read as 'b1 b2' etc.

Maybe i'm not getting the part about what controllers are compatible with this mod? I'm using a Hori mini ps4 game pad model PS4-100U

Would I need to use an actual xbox controller or ps3/ps4 controller and something like ds4tool or motionjoy to see the change?

Thanks in advance!

yeah i am using the english version. technically im using an xbox one controller instead of a 360 but i dont think that would be an issue.  i think i have one on my C drive and one on D.  Would have to double check.  But here are the screen shots!

You have to put all of the contents of the C:/FINAL FANTASY VIII/ folder into the REAL 'FINAL FANTASY VIII/' folder that contains the FF8_EN.exe file.
So that last image you posted has everything, but all of that needs to be moved into your -real- FF8 parent folder.  Mine is in steamapps/common/FINAL FANTASY VIII/

Actually, I made a bit of headway and did some troubleshooting myself.

Installing the regular psx buttons and not the 'hid' one has replaced the b1 b2 b3 etc with the pictures of the buttons.(installing the HID download doesnt replace anything with either controller) I only have one problem my X and O buttons are swapped. I tried using my PS4 controller and DS4tool as well as my Hori Minipad PS4 wired controller, both doing the same thing X and O are swapped.

Is it because I changed the default button mappings for select from default square to the X button, and the card game default button to square?

In other words i changed the Select command from button 1 to button 2, Card to from default button 3 to button 1,  Menu from default button 2 to button 4, and cancel remained default button 4

I did this so that it matches the original psx ff8 buttons where menu is O and X is select, /_\ is cancel and [] is card game. also so that zells limit also matchs the psx version (punch rush is OX etc)

thats also the only thing i have tested seeing the buttons on, zells limit. when i go to do punch rush its XO instead of OX and also XO is the incorrect input for punch rush and i have to actually press circle X

sorry if this was any at all confusing, It was very hard to explain in detail for me.

If that image doesn't work, there are a few other links in this thread that you can try out.  I will update the main page post with these links and a new mod version as well as a version to use with Shunsq's controller mod.

Hey McIndus - I use the FF7 button layout.. triangle (menu), x (select), circle (cancel), square (switch). Do you have a layout that would align with this?

I've struggled for tens of hours trying to get my controls to "perfectly" match the PSX's control scheme, to no avail, probably because of something trivial. Instead I have created a Steam Controller Config for a more "traditional" setup (e.g. Triangle is Menu).

steam://controllerconfig/39150/1573060929

This uses the default launcher settings.

Think I am going to cave and finally get a Steam controller.

Try Antimicro https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro/releases (https://github.com/AntiMicro/antimicro/releases) I use it for alot of Steam games without controller support and it works pretty well.

Tonberry is OK, SeeD is OK, since I can see the graphic change when I load up FFVIII, but sadly my 360 controller does not work even with 2.0.

Can anyone help? Not a big fan of playing in KB/M games such as this one.

NEVERMIND.

The controller works after I load up my savefile. THX!

use the image above as a guide. With ff8 on steam it has steam controller support so if you follow that post youll be able to get both your dpad and joysticks to work. It worked out of the box for me with my DS4 controller and 360 afterglow.

I'm having some difficulty getting the Xbox 360 wireless controller buttons to show up in game, can you help?

I'm using the English Steam version of the game.

I have steam installed to my D:\ Drive, NOT my C:\ (OS) Drive, if this matters?

I payed for the Lunatic Pandora mods through the website.

I installed a clean/fresh version of FFVIII through Stream to D:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VIII

I installed Lunatic Pandora mod to the following location: D:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\FINAL FANTASY VIII

I can successfully launch the game in Administrator using FF8_Ultra_Launcher and I don't receive any errors so I assume its all good?

The Xbox 360 wireless controller works in game, however the button icons are mapped/displaying B1, B2 etc

I'm a little confused, I have downloaded FF8_ControllerButtons_v2.0 and copied over both:

sysfld00_17
sysfld01_17

And I'm still unable to see the button icons, I have screenshots of my folders attached.

Any help is appreciated.

move the sysfld00_17 and sysfld01_17 files UP one level... so pull them out of the xbox folder and move them into the folder with the same name, one level up the file hierarchy.  you will need to copy over the ones that are in the /sysfld00 and /sysfld01 folders with those.

If you're using a mapper program, you will need to use the HID folder for your layout.  If you're using a default input control setup, just use the files in the /main folder.  You may need to use HID, from what I see.

Brilliant! this worked thank you for the help.

On a separate note, am I expecting to much from the Lunatic Pandora mod? I don't receive any errors when its launched, however, textures don't look as good as what I've seen on YouTube using the same mod, is there anyway I can actually find out if the mods are all working?

Hello, Mcindus. I have a little problem. I have Antimicro tool, and so I'm using HID version of Xbox setup.
The game still shows generic button prompts, called 1, 2, 3, and so on... This until I press something.
If I press a button on my controller, then it shows the retexture with Xbox buttons. But when I release the button, generic prompts comes back.

To summarize: game shows Xbox buttons ONLY in the time I'm pressing a button on the controller.

Obviously I'm using latest Tonberry and italian version of SeeD Reborn. I also tried to use the hashmap in the archive of this mod, but without success.

EDIT: I tried Main version of your mod, and it works better. Xbox prompts are showed also if I don't press a button.
The only problem, is the infamous A+R shown together.
And it doesn't show LT and RT triggers. In the HID version, are showed as L and R stick. In the Main version, aren't showed at all.

I'm not sure what's going on with my set up but I can't get this mod to work. All my other graphics mods are fine.

I'm using a steam controller and steam link.

I actually think the mod is probably working tbh, but I can't get the game to realise I'm using a controller. So it's showing keyboard buttons.

Anyone seen this, or know how to force the game into using a controller setup instead of keyboard?

Thanks for the help!

I'm having this issue too, no matter what I do, I just get keyboard prompts and displays instead of icons, not even B1 B2 etc etc…


tried 5 or 6 times now but it either stays at keyboard or goes nuts and uses the hand icon for everything

using ps4 controller with no other apps or mods other than steam and lunatic pandora / raw.

Hello, thank you so much for your hard work on this mod. I think I'm almost there but I have run into an issue. Instead of mapping the green text to controller icons, it instead maps all green text to the cursor. I have tested it with the gunblade cursor in seeDReborn 4 and normal cursor in earlier versions. Would you have any advice for me?

Again, thank you so much.

EDIT: I've determined that this issue occurs when I place the FF8_Buttons_EN.txt file into RaW/GLOBAL/Hext folder. I tried a different langauge (Fr) and I still got green text, but of a different font I believe. Moving the FF8_Buttons{config}.txt file does not change.

Hello Mcindus. I installed your mod with my FF8 steam version and the controller button mod doesn't work. When I installed the FF8_Buttons_Main for PS4 DS4, the game is still showing keybindings not the actual ps button. I also tried installing the Shunsq version but it shows a gunblade icon. Thank you.
