While I am aware that there are no plans for a console release anytime soon I wanted to give you guys a ruff idea of how to build the button mapping in the future as many MMO's and poor PC ports struggle to understand how we use them. (for some reason) Please like if you enjoy this content and thank you for reading. :) Also feel free to comment for improvement.

    While I think playing MMOs with anything other than a proper MMO mouse, and keyboard is complete blasphemy. I do enjoy with people take issues into their own hands, and DIY their own solutions get desired input methods. I had to hand wire a custom keyboard to get the input method I wanted for FFXI.

    Do you use joystick to mouse emulation or other out of game software or hardware shenanigan's?

    If I had more time, I would write a shorter post.

    I used add-ons and a system called wowmapper for classic WOW. simple things like new UI, curser invisible and centred until clicked, that sort of stuff.
