Playing MapleStory with a Controller - A Tutorial for MapleStory

Playing Maplestory with a Controller
What you will need ~JoyToKey (linked to English version) ~A controller installed on your computer (any controller should work, x360, PS2, regular logitech gamepad, ect) How to do it First thing you'll need to do, if you can't remember your keyboard layout off the top of your head, is to go in game and take a screenshot of it. For the sake of this tutorial, I've done so with my main character.

Now, you'll notice there's just so many commands. Your controller, no matter what type you have, will not have enough buttons for everything. My simple Logitech, which has 4 buttons, 4 shoulder buttons, and the start/pause works just fine for me. With that out of the way, all you really need are your motion buttons, main skills, and of course your loot & potion keys. You can now unzip the JoyToKey application, and put it in a folder with easy access (unless of course you enjoy a messy desktop). Double click the icon and click on "Create".
This text box should appear, just name it something to remind you of what the hell the setting is for, as you can have multiple settings with this program.
Your window should look like this, now. Most gamepads have numbers on their buttons, those of course correspond with the "Button #". To edit a key, simply double click it, you'll meet the window in the next screenshot.
Don't mind anything here except for the top box that says "DISABLED" and the "Automatic Shooting", those are the only things that you will need. For the first four buttons, "LEFT", "RIGHT", "UP", "DOWN", those correspond with your left joystick. Unless you like inverse controls, simply assign the left, right, up, and down arrow keys respectively, and keep Automatic shooting off. Now, for the other buttons. Most of them will require automatic shooting, just move the slider all the way to the right, that'll make it so your attacks repeat automatically without you having to mash the buttons over and over again (just hold them down and it'll work by itself). I suggest keeping automatic shooting off for your potion buttons, because if you leave those on all the way, you'll waste potions so fast, and probably end up losing money that way. For layouts, I personally like having 3 of my 4 main buttons as the skills I use regularly (the < ^ > buttons, 1, 3, and 4). I use button 2 as Jump, because that's what most videogames have it as, so it's just easy to have it there (make sure that's got Automatic Shooting enabled too, otherwise you'd have to press the button every jump, instead of just holding it down) If you have 4 shoulder buttons, good for you. I like having the right two as my potions, that's just what I'm used to, maybe it'll work for you, maybe not. For the left two shoulders, I like to have the bottom one as loot (make sure that's got Automatic Shooting on max, it makes looting a lot easier), and the top one as a random powerup skill. Being a Cleric I usually reserve that for Bless.
Of course, these are 100% editable at any time. Hopefully if you've played Maplestory a lot you'll understand this tutorial, obviously if you haven't, you wont understand as much. Make sure you have this program running in the background while playing, it's not blocked by Gameguard in any way and is 100% legal to use with Maplestory. Now you can train in comfort. Happy Mapling! P.s., sorry that it's mostly text and almost no images, there's no real easy way to explain this without text. :(

    Posted by Bojero Can you use this program to play other games with a controller?
    Yep, this is a universal program and isn't attached to just this game.
    Awesome. I'll take this as a general tutorial then and I'll come here when I decide to set this up.

    You were telling me about Maplestory the other day. Can you use this program to play other games with a controller? On the whole great tutorial. I understood everything and might use this application on a different game (if possible).
