okay i downloaded Final Fantasy 8 last night and i realized after i got into the battle with the T-Rexaur that i cannot run from battles due to the fact that psp does not have L2 or R2. and if i change the layout of these buttons i must sacrifice things i need for the game i.e. menu, running, talking, trigger. any advice on what i should do? and no i do not own a ps3 so i cannot synch up a ps3 controller to my psp. well i found out that i can change the original layout of the buttons for the psp itself but i do not know how. i bought my psp go used and it did not come with the instruction manual. thanks to all for your input ^_^.
If my memory Serves me correctly , there is a button layout when you get into the game you can hit the home key on your psp. Then button config and i belive u can chnage the layout to use the analog stick of the psp to bind up down left or right to those keys and or 2 at a time.
Pretty much what Masa said.
Press The PS Button > Controller Settings > Assign Buttons
From in-game, you press the Menu Button > Config > Controller > Customize and change the commands to your liking.
Also, for the T-Rexuar thing, just cast blind and continue to lay into it. Also, in case you don't know, try timing your attacks and pressing the trigger button to deal a bit of extra damage. Good luck, man.
