Konami has just released the demo of its latest football iteration, Pro Evolution Soccer 2013. Although, the demo seems plausible, but if you can’t get your controls right, you won’t be able to have the complete feel of the game.
Those who have been following the PES series for some while won’t have any difficulty in setting up the controls but for the new comers, the following guide will serve the purpose to show the controls configuration in PES 13.
How To Customize PES 2013 Keyboard Controls
In the PES 13 demo folder, there will be a settings file. Open it.
Now, in the keyboard setting menu, you will be able to assign keys in the respective slots. For instance, i have my keyboard controls set like it:
If you don’t know that what button does which functionality then you can use the following key (i am using my controls as reference, you can change according to your own wish):
PES 2013 – Basic Controls
PES 2013 Controller Vs. Keyboard Controls
Y = Through Ball (Bring out Goal Keeper)
X = Shoot (Pressure applied by non-controlled players)
A = Short Pass (Tackle)
B = Lob Pass (Sliding Tackle)
RB = Sprint
LB = Cursor Change (Player Makes a Run)
RT = Special Skills (Dribbling)
LT = Fineese Shot (Directed Pass)
You can also use the above key to set buttons on your controller. The analogue stick, however, will be used for 360 dribbling which one can’t do on a keyboard. These were the basic controls.
In the screenshot above, the control setting is almost the same as classic controls used in FIFA. It’s better that you use the same controls in both the games so that your game does not get disturbed by different key configuration.
Now, if you are looking for full control functionality, you can refer to the following key:
