Tekken 7 (PC) on a cabinet
« on: June 03, 2017, 10:47:03 am »
Tekken 7 was released yesterday on the PC, PS4, and XBox One. I picked it up for both PS4 and PC.

So, the question many of you probably have is: how does the PC work with keyboard encoders (like the IPAC), since we've had problems getting most newer PC fighting games on the PC working with both players mapped to the "keyboard." (Like Street Fighter V).

The answer is: Tekken 7 works right out the box with both players mapped to the keyboard. No additional mapper programs or such needed.

Now, is it easy to map the keys to the buttons for your control panel layout? The button mapping system is kinda messed up. You can't map a key to a command if it's already set to another command on either player (for example, I can't set "A" to "P1 Left Punch" because it's set to "P2 Left".) You can't set certain commands to "no key" and save it because certain commands are needed and it won't save without them. And you can't set them all at once because each player button set is a separate menu. I had to keep going between P1 and P2, setting controls to some random button, until I could get the control scheme I wanted.

Also, certain keys can't be mapped to buttons. My default P1 start is "Enter." That can't be bound to a key.

So, if you have an IPAC or similar, I'd recommend just create a custom mapping, and flash it to the encoder. Revert back to default after the game closes. Once things are mapped correctly, the game itself is very playable, and menu navigation works well. Certain parts, like character customization, may require more controls than you have, so I'd keep a regular gamepad handy for that stuff.

Oh, and as far as I know, the PC version is only on Steam, and is a fairly large game (currently 58711 MB on my system. Over 58 Gigabytes!). You might want to make sure your computer can handle this before purchasing and downloading. Visit to test your system.

Running on a 4:3 monitor: The first time I ran it on my 4:3, it was all squished. Some messing around in the settings got it to display in fullscreen letterbox. Might have looked like that because I had already ran it on my 16:9, so starting out on a 4:3 might not be a problem.

Thanks for the info, MKX and SFV were a big disappointment for Ipac owners.
