All I get is the menu screen.

It says press any key, and I tried every key on my keyboard and it still does not work.

Any key means any of the configured keys in the ini file. Just open the ini file and select and of the predetermined configs and then push any of the rotation buttons and it'll work.

5. ### sjoecool1991

Worked, I meant to edit my post.

Hey report! Just thought i'd let you know that i really like your game! However, the biggest turn off for me is the inability to configure the keys. Even being able to edit them in the ini file would be wonderful.

You can.

No you can't. It doesn't do a thing. I tried.

9. ### cdsboyUnregistered

No, no you can't.

10. ### sjoecool1991

Hm, I guess its a thing only my computer can do then.

Because I did.

11. ### cdsboyUnregistered

well then show me how, and i will admit i was wrong.

12. ### jujubeUnregistered

why wouldn't super joe have a super computer?

13. ### sjoecool1991

All I did was change it in the ini and it worked.

You can probably change the joystick button assignments, but the keyboard controls are listed in comments -- there's no way that changing them will have any effect.

I love this game already. Texmaster is way better than Heboris or Lockjaw!

As for the people claiming that you cant change the keys, you can. Just use an hex editor if the predefined key setups dont suit you.

I did this and the game now uses my preferred keys ASDW, KL.

@All, Anyhow, here is my heavily commented "Texmaster2008.ini" file (note that I'm still using version 2008, dunno about 2009):

Code:
[PLAYER]
;Alphanumeric characters (maximum 9)
player1_name = WEEDS
player2_name = PLAYER 2

[VIDEO]
; Aspect ratio 4:3
; Type 0 = Windowed mode
; Type 1 = Fullscreen mode
width = 640
height = 480
type = 1
offset = 0

[KEYBOARD]
;     Up Down Left Right A  B  C  D
; Type 0 = S  X   Z   C   B  N  M  Spacebar
; Type 1 = S  X   Z   C   M  ;  .  Spacebar
; Type 2 = Up Down Left Right KP1 KP2 KP3 KP0
; Type 3 = Up Down Left Right Z  X  C  V
; Type 5 = Disabled
key_type_pl1 = 3
key_type_pl2 = 5

[JOYSTICK]
player1_keyA = 0
player1_keyB = 1
player1_keyC = 2
player1_keyD = 3
player2_keyA = 0
player2_keyB = 1
player2_keyC = 2
player2_keyD = 3
;Report setting
;player1_keyA = 0
;player1_keyB = 7
;player1_keyC = 1
;player1_keyD = 4
;Trio setting
;player1_keyA = 3
;player1_keyB = 6
;player1_keyC = 1
;player1_keyD = 2

[ETC]
; Background brightness
; 0 = Light
; 7 = Dark
bg_brightness = 7
mode1 = NOVICE
mode2 = NORMAL
mode4 = SPECIAL
mode5 = SUDDEN
mode6 = DOUBLES
mode7 = SHIZUKU
sound_buffer = 1024
samplerate = 44100

<AFAIK> The keyboard "types" listed above are the only ones that you can choose from.

BTW, here are all of the hard-coded keyboard (function keys) commands for the game:

Code:
F1 = Player 1 maximum speed, fast-forward replay
F2 = Player 2 maximum speed, fast-forward replay
F4 = Stop AVI format video recording
F5 = Start AVI format video recording
F7 = Background music test menu
F8 = Toggle single-player middle pit/single-player left pit/multi-player pits
F9 = Debug information
F11 = Restart player 1 game
F12 = Restart player 2 game
