Tutorial for User Settings
Not everyone likes to play the same way, and here at vNES, we understand that. Previously, different settings were chosen using icons on the games list pages, but we've added loads of new features to vNES that have made that unfeasible to continue using. To fix this, we've created the Options menu which allows you to decide how the keyboard corresponds to the controllers, and if you want to play with sound off, or scanlines on, and many other options as well.
Notice: Before reading this tutorial, please remember that the Options menu depends on using cookies. If for some reason you have cookies disabled, your settings will not stick.
Step 1: Configuring Options
Configuring options is very easy. To do so, click on the Options button, and then select "Configure Settings." When you open this menu, the default settings are selected, and from there, you can decide what you wish to change.
For example, if you previously used the speaker icon to turn off sound when playing games in vNES, you'll want to click on the drop-down box for Sound and set it to Off. If you clicked the TV icon for scanlines, you'll want to set that to On. Other options are available as well, most of which are self-explanatory.
Step 2: Configuring Keyboard
You can change which keys on your keyboard correspond to the control pad on the NES. This works for Player 1 and Player 2. Don' t assign two keys on the keyboard to cover more than one button.
