Yanfly Engine Plugins

This plugin is a part of the Yanfly Engine Plugins library.


This plugin enables you to bind common events to the individual buttons on
your keyboard. Instead of having the standard Z for OK and X for cancel,
you can make other keys work differently. With the exception of important
keys that shouldn't be altered, nearly full access is given across the span
of the keyboard.


In the plugin's parameters, you will see a list of all the keys that you can
bind to a common event. If that number is something other than 0, then the
number associated with it will be the common event that will run. If you
assign it to a common event ID that does not exist, you will get an error so
please be wary of that.

You may also notice that some of the keys have in parenthesis a word like
(OK) or (Cancel) next to them. What this means is that those keys already
have a function assigned to them by the game. If you assign a common event
to these keys, the native function of the key will be removed in favor of
the common event you've assigned.

Here is a list of the keys that already have a common assigned:

Key - What they're assigned to
  - Q         - Assigned to PageUp
  - W         - Assigned to PageDown
  - Shift     - Assigned to Dash
  - Z         - Assigned to OK
  - X         - Assigned to Cancel
  - Space     - Assigned to OK
  - Left      - Assigned to moving left
  - Up        - Assigned to moving up
  - Right     - Assigned to moving right
  - Down      - Assigned to moving down
  - Insert    - Assigned to Cancel
  - Page Up   - Assigned to PageUp
  - Page Down - Assigned to PageDown
  - Numpad 0  - Assigned to Cancel
  - Numpad 2  - Assigned to moving down
  - Numpad 4  - Assigned to moving left
  - Numpad 6  - Assigned to moving right
  - Numpad 8  - Assigned to moving up

Once again, if you assign common events to these keys, the common event will
removing the binding the key had natively. However, this will only apply
while the player is in the field map. Being inside of a menu or battle
system will restore the previously native functions.

Compatibility Issues

This plugin will most likely have compatibility issues with anything that
alters keystrokes or makes use of them through a different manner.

This will include the KeyboardConfig.js that was provided for the RPG Maker
MV plugin pack made by Yanfly Engine Plugins. A revision of this plugin
KeyboardConfig.js is made on Yanfly.moe for you to pick up! Make sure you
have YEP_KeyboardConfig.js version 1.01 in order for this to be compatible
with it. This plugin must be placed above YEP_KeyboardConfig.js for the
two plugins to work together.

Plugin Commands


Plugin Commands are event commands that are used to call upon functions added by a plugin that aren't inherently a part of RPG Maker MV.

Here is a list of Plugin Command(s) that you may use:

For those who would like for a way to toggle back and forth between the
bound common events and the default buttons, use these plugin commands.

Plugin Commands

  RevertButton Ok
  RevertButton Cancel
  RevertButton Dash
  RevertButton PageUp
  RevertButton PageDown
  RevertButton Left
  RevertButton Up
  RevertButton Right
  RevertButton Down
  RevertButton All
  - Reverts all keys bound to any of the original functions back to their
  original buttons and unbinds the common events bound to them. If the "All"
  function is reverted, then all affected buttons will revert back to their
  original functions.

  SwitchButton Ok
  SwitchButton Cancel
  SwitchButton Dash
  SwitchButton PageUp
  SwitchButton PageDown
  SwitchButton Left
  SwitchButton Up
  SwitchButton Right
  SwitchButton Down
  SwitchButton All
  - Switches all keys with original functions to use the common event binds
  instead of their original versions. If the "All" function is switched,
  then all affected buttons will switch to common event bindings if there
  are any.

  TriggerButton Ok
  TriggerButton Cancel
  TriggerButton Dash
  TriggerButton PageUp
  TriggerButton PageDown
  TriggerButton Left
  TriggerButton Up
  TriggerButton Right
  TriggerButton Down
  - This will cause the game to simulate triggering the button command of
  one of those original functions even if there is a common event bound to
  all of the keys of that original function.


Version 1.02:
- Updated for RPG Maker MV version 1.5.0.

Version 1.01:
- Changed buttons from triggering to repeating so that common events can
continuously run while being held down.

Version 1.00:
- Finished Plugin!
