Thumbs up Xbox Button Icons In Name Fields [Solved\Tutorial Updated 2016]

UPDATE
Alright, guys! I've found out all of the characters in SS2, and apparently the xbox icons are special characters.
Since keystroke commands like Ctrl + V and unicode commands do not work in-game, I'll be showing you on how to make this work the easiest way so far.

UPDATED #2016 FIX - Made tutorial much easier without needing Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator.

Video

Steps
Very easy. Download my updated preset for xbox icons: http://www.mediafire.com/download/m5...Xbox_Icons.zip

Open ss2_xbox_icons.zip --> ss2_xbox --> Run setup.exe. Close after installation.

Make sure you have ENG SSII Xbox Icons keyboard enabled.

This will give you secret character symbols on your keyboard to enable xbox icons in name field.

Now start the game and edit your names!

~~~~~What keys to press within the name field~~~~~~

Key press for (A) icon = [Shift] + [3]
Key press for (B) icon = [Shift] + [4]
Key press for (X) icon = [Shift] + [5]
Key press for (Y) icon = [Shift] + [6]
Key press for (WHITE) icon = [Shift] + [7]
Key press for (BLACK) icon = [Shift] + [8]

Tip
Press Ctrl + Shift to toggle the Xbox Icons keyboard language.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NOTE
Your name will look like this on the in-game name list:

However, the player will view Xbox icons if they point their crosshair directly at you:

That's it.

OPTIONAL
You can also save some time in Windows 7 by adding the language bar on taskbar if you go to Start --> Control Panel --> Clock, Language, and Region --> Region and Language --> Keyboards and Languages --> Change keyboards... --> Language Bar tab --> Docked in the taskbar --> OK. Right-Mouse-Click on the icon and disable Auto Adjust if it gets buggy and keeps resetting the language to your default. You can do the same for Windows 10.

Default Re: Xbox Button Icons In Name Field?

No, it has nothing to with Profile.dat

You better check the file Z_195_Upgrade_Mod_ADP.gro with a tool like 7zip or WinRAR.

Somehow he has enabled Xbox buttons.

In folder Content\SeriousSam2\Textures\Menu\ you can find some of Xbox Buttons as .tex files.

The descrribed folders are inside Z_195_Upgrade_Mod_ADP.gro

And check in folder Content\SeriousSam2\Databases\ the files
GlobalGameParameters.rsc
HudParams.rsc
SimpleHudBarParams.rsc
PowerUpEffects.rsc

Default Re: Xbox Button Icons In Name Field?

A year later...

So... Gave this an update. Reasons...
- Some peeps were having issues
- Added images
- Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator no longer needed; it won't work for Windows 10. Downloading that is a waste of time.

All you need to do is run setup.exe from the ss2_xbox_icons.zip. This installs a keyboard layout based on EU/US english, enabling secret character symbols to type into SSII's profile/session name field for xbox icons. You can toggle the language preference back and forth... if docked onto the low right corner of your desktop. And yes, it's definitely safe. Added video of it.
