Enter button X or O?

Added by Arran Lawley about 10 years ago

Showtime is grate, defiantly the best if not the only media player for the PS3.
But for people with Japanese consoles it is a bit confusing changing from using O for enter to X for enter.
Maybe if it doesn't take to much coding an option could be added for selection of enter and back buttons.

P.S great work Andreas.

OK, I didn't know there was a difference.

Is that something that the PS3 itself knows about perhaps?

Most games are coded so that they uses the "enter button" (O for Japan, X for Europe/America) as the enter button.
However some games (e.g. Ateler Rorona) and most homebrew hard code X as enter.
Although some homebrew have an option to change the enter button from X to O.

For me, the best option would be to implement the joystick maper

It makes me very lack the option to advance without having to access the menu (triangle). And this option also makes it possible to resolve the differences / preferences of each user in the use of buttons

Thanks!

I don't know why Japanese people use O for enter, like wtf lol.

If you have a jap console, just dload rogero button changer and change it to the normal setting, and get used to using x for enter.

I like using O for enter and I don't think its fair to say to all the people with Japaneses consoles to change to X and get used to it.
O's and X's are common symbols of yes, no, correct, and incorrect in Japan.
I'm sure people in japan would appreciate being able to use O for enter in showtime.

The button map setting screen is not a good solution for the PS3 controller, because some buttons may conflict with the video playback GUI (for example, using the arrow keys to seek will conflict with navigating the video playback GUI).

We need some pre-set built-in layouts to choose from. Maybe one with reversed X and O buttons.

do you think this will be possible in 3.5?
