[Tutorial] Changing FF8Configurator Keys
« on: 2010-10-02 21:58:49 »
If this post doesn't fits here you're free to move it.

Many people used FF8Configurator because of the soundfonts (including me), but they had a problem with the keyboard because they couldn't use the configuration that they wanted. Here's the solution.

(You can get Final Fantasy VIII Configurator in http://ffsf.aaron-kelley.net/download_8.html)

When you configure the FF8Configurator a file named config.ini will appear in the folder.

1.- Open it with your favorite text editor (Like notepad for example)
2.- Scroll down in the config.ini until you see "[Keyboard]"
3.- There you can change the numbers to the ones that you want (Each number will represent a key in the keyboard).
4.- Save the file and check the changes by opening FF8Configurator

Here's mine:
Code: [Select]
[Keyboard]
Trigger=46
RotRt=18
Exit=45
Menu=32
Action=44
Misc=31
RotLt=16
Toggle=19
Select=17
Start=25
Right=205
Up=200
Down=208
Left=203

This will be like:
Code: [Select]
[Keyboard]
Trigger=C
RotRt=E
Exit=45
Menu=D
Action=Z
Misc=R
RotLt=Q
Toggle=W
Select=S
Start=P
Right=Right Arrow
Up=Up Arrow
Down=Down Arrow
Left=Left Arrow

I hope that this can help some ppl that are having problems with it ^^ (and yes I know, it takes a lot of time to configure the keyboard, but atm it is the only way to do it, as a tip you can check the ff8input.cfg file where FF8 is installed.)
