My friend made this controller config mfa for me but I don't completely understand it.

I'm trying to get it so when you change button controls instead of using something like "Joy 1" it will instead use something like "A button" I'm trying to make my game compatible with 360 controls and I figure it would be easier to change your controls if you knew exactly which button went where. For example say you want to change controls for Jump. Instead of seeing something arbitrary like Jump = "joy 2" it will say Jump = "B button"

You would really have to take a look at the actual mfa to understand what I'm saying.

I put a link for the MFA, and other data files below. (I couldn't figure out how to attach a file)

Why, this config program looks awfully familiar...

I think the easiest way to do what you're asking is to associate each joystick button value with a pre-defined name, and the easiest way to do that would be with a list object.

Make a list. Put it off to the side, out of the frame, hide it, and give it 1-based index (which is probably a better choice in this case).
Each entry to the list will correspond to one of the buttons. Joy 1 will be the first line, Joy 2 the second, etc. You'll have to find out yourself what all of these buttons mean (A button, B button, etc.) and write them into the corresponding list slots.

When you've done that, you replace the events on line 5 of your program (the ones that aren't the four directions, anyway) to refer to the list values.
Thus something like this
"Joy "+GroupItemString$( "Ini", Combo Select$( "Combo Box" ), "5")
Becomes something like this.
List Line Text$( "List", GroupItemValue( "Ini", Combo Select$( "Combo Box" ), "5"))

...Which (assumeing I getting this right) should use the button's equivalent name from the list value instead of a plain ol' button number.

That worked fantastically, thanks ol' boy!

Oh and about the config looking familiar, my friend did make it to work with my game but he didn't invent it. I should've mentioned that. Btw do you know who made it so I can give them credit if I ever finish my game?
