Hey so I don't know how long I've had this issue because at least since last year I've had no need to access this menu but I just got the two SNES-style controllers I ordered in the mail, and they work in RMMV which is great but while the d-pad is mapped correctly--up is up, etc.--the "y" button is mapped to "C" in RPG Maker and the other seven buttons do nothing. When I tried to open the Game Properties menu to map my gamepad properly, nothing happens.

When I press F1 key (the only way I know of to access the options/keymap screen, I think it's technically called the "Game Properties" screen) inside of test play OR in game.exe, full screen or windowed, nothing happens. My keyboard does not have a function key, so it's not that. At a loss here. Thankfully I can keep developing and test playing as I have been, w/ keyboard input, but this is rather vexing.

VERSION: 1.6.2 (which is I think the current one but it's not clear)


I am dumb yet again. (But so is RPG Maker this time.)

RPG Maker MV does not have the Game Properties window, like the previous XP, VX and VX Ace programs.

Also, there are no options for fullscreen, gamepad and keyboard by default, and all of them need to be implemented via plugins.

By default, this Maker suppors only X-Input gamepads, or XBox 360/One/Series X controllers. Keyboard inputs works the same as in previous versions by default.

whaaaaaaaaaaa?????

why would they do this? I have never understood why the people that make this series REMOVE basic, essential functionality in newer versions? (actually in this case it makes a little more sense than most as I think this is the first version that has tried to have compatibility w/ Apple, consoles, etc.)

Is there a basic unobtrusive plugin that will let me quickly and easily remap my controller (that I don't really know the inputs of but I'll figure it out somehow)?

This was literally one of the most hated features on Ace and one of the main reasons I jumped to MV as soon as it was announced. (not the ability to configure the controllers per se, but the way it was implemented).

There are several plugins to handle it on MV, this thread should have links to some of them:

Here is the second song of the Eniko: Ghosts Of Grace soundtrack: Jus Ad Bellum (Battle Theme), composed by Nickolas Wolfe! Looking forward to your reactions!
Observation Log 1 on the planet of "RPGMAKERWEB": Local RMXP community seems to have very few survivors. Their script tech-level is in the early Stone Age(about the same as 66RPG in 2007).
Some cats/wolves/squirrels are spotted, they are likely friendly. :3

May try to use the "I Come in Peace" protocol if encounter any hostiles.
Using hiddenone's QTE tutorial I've been able to setup a simple fishing system. Instead of just the pointer moving, the goal moves as well. Holding the action button scrolls the pointer and pressing the down arrow key hooks the fish. The speed of both is variable as well as the number of successful hooks needed for a catch.
