So I just started playing this game, and went to the tower, rescued the kids... I'm still in the prologue so I thinks this is going to be a looooooong game. Anyway, I'm having trouble with the controls. I set up an Xbox 360 pad and it works perfectly, but... I'm confused about the S-Breaks. What button is it? I accidentally hit it during the sewers mission but I can't seem to get it to work again and the Configuration Tools doesn't have an S-Break button. So... Is it the same as the map? The same as the attack? I'm going nuts here xD Loving the game though :)
EDIT: Also, was anyone able to set the triggers to do anything? I'm not used to pushing the analog as buttons so it would be great to be able to use the triggers for that.
It took some time for me before I understand it too, in fact, it's easy but not well explained (and the update seems to have changed a little bit how it's working in a better way).
You have two way to perform S-Break.
1) First one is the "when it's your turn" way (it's not the best way ;)). You just have to go on your "Craft" menu and launch it as an normal attack.
2) Second (and better) is to launch it when it's someone's (one of your character or an opponent) turn, to be able to perform the S-Break just after his turn (and this way take his follower's turn and so eventually the bonus associated with the turn) (or taking his turn if it was one of your character).
When you have over 100C points, your red icon of "S-Break ready" appears. When you want to use it, press left (or right) to choose the S-Break of wich character you want to launch (if more than one is ready for S-Break) : it will make appear red arrows around the red icon, now press your gamepad's confirm button to confirm your choice : it should be launched just after the action currently performing. Once launched, you can't cancel it ! But, if you pressed left (or right) by mistake (and still not launched it), you just have to push up or down to have your cursor again in the usual menu.
I took a screenshot to give an example.
Here Estelle and Joshua have their S-Break ready, and it's Joshua's turn. I pushed left (or right) control (don't remember sorry), and doing this was gone into "S-Break selection". I could push left (or right) to select Estelle's S-Break and just have to confirm (push the A or B button on a xbox controller, I don't know wich one it is) : when I'll do, she'll perform his S-Break taking Joshua's turn. He will be able to play just after Estelle's S-Break. If nothing is launched and finally changed your mind, you still can cancel the "S-Break selection" by pushing up or down.
It would be almost the same thing if a monster is attacking/moving : you can launch your S-break while he is moving/ attacking in the same way : your S-Break will be performed just after his action, taking this way his follower's turn (and bonus associated).
Hope this will help ! And sorry for my english XD (and loooong explanation)
Seconded, I want to use my Xbox controller, but dunno if I can.
There shouldn't be any problem :)
