Hi there!

I'm just bought pico-8 and I was wondering if there was any way to change the input keys around? I tried researching if I could change things around with the SDL controller configs, but nothing I tried seemed to work...

I'm a huge dork and just don't want to move my hands after i've typed some code....

Also, my right hand is not used to moving around, so playing games like Celeste is really difficult for me...

Thanks for your help!

I use a gamepad, as I don't like keys either

I tried using a wiimote, and I got it set up with the SDL keys... but I couldn't find a way to input the buttons on the dpad in a way that pico8 would understand....

the console uses leftx and lefty as input, but i'm not sure how to assign them so that leftx can register both left and right.... :\

There isn't currently a way to remap keys, but it's on the wishlist.

To set up a custom controller mapping:

  1. Use http://www.generalarcade.com/gamepadtool/ to generate a mapping string
  2. Add it to C:/Users/Yourname/AppData/Roaming/pico-8/sdl_controllers.txt
  3. Run pico-8 (it only reads sdl_controllers.txt on startup)

Thank you for this awesome program!

Since version 0.1.5, there is a way to remap the keys using "keyconfig" in pico8's terminal.
