Hey all

What object is used to allow users to define the keys in-game rather than using the regular menu? I'd like to have an options screen where keys are defined in there. Did a search and came up with nothing...I'm still trying to get a grasp of all the stuff MMF2 Dev has compared to MMF Express and MMF 1.2

Thanks!

Wow. Nevermind. I wasn't looking in the right spot. I've got it now.

May the noob comments commence...

The joystick object can set it. It's under Player Control > Set key.

Wait a sec...maybe I jumped the gun here. The Joypad object doesnt look like it'll let you define keys. The player control in the event editor does, but not in-game, it looks like it forces you to define it there in the event editor. Maybe I am missing something...

DOH! I just ran the extension updater and there is a Joypad and Joystick object. DIdn't have the Joystick object. I'm getting it now... I will let you know the results. I'm sure you're in total suspense right now.

Ah, I see what you're asking. Try the control X object. You can ask for a key to be pressed and then use this to determine the last key pressed: LastKeyPressed$( "Control X" )

Hope that works for ya.

The control X object allows player to change the controls.

after you add it say:
player, set"key"

"LastKeyPressed$( "Control X" )"

Looks like that's exactly what I'm looking for. I'll have to mess with it a bit but I think I've got it figured out.

Thanks a ton! I really appreciate it!
