Default Problem with C button controls

Hi guys, I'm playing Zelda OoT and as we know, the C buttons are really vital to continuing on in the game. My issue is that my home button is actually a function button under my keypad 7 (Acer makes terrible computers for gaming, since there is no actual pg down or up, home or end buttons by themselves.) So I tried to change the controls for the P64 and it doesn't do anything. Do you guys have any suggestions on what I can do so that I can continue on in the game? Thanks!

try using an xbox controller, use the left joy stick to move around and program the right right joystick as your c buttons, use the green button as "A" and use the blue button as "B" or whatever you wish, don't use your keyboard as a controller most games don't respond to it, or if you're using an n64 controller you should now that n64 controller boards ( you know the green platform under the plastic) tend to die after long term use, certain internal commands may not be taking place inside the controller which is causing your game not to recognize commands

Sad. A full page #1 of this thread, and not one person even replied to the original post/question helpfully.

I don't mind being an ass and dicking around playfully at times at whatnot (although to a humored, non-trolling extent, unlike fuxxelwuffer, who just can't resist trolling to deduct from his own upset shame), but you guys should at least make an effort to address the OP/thread issue while you're at it.

In case you didn't notice, most people don't use the keyboard, but that could just be the default keyboard controls you're using under DirectInput plugins like Jabo's. It's unfortunate but most of these N64 input plugins really don't have a solid keyboard layout or just base off of PSX emus.

Traditionally, I used the numeric keypad "NUMPAD": 8 for Up-C, 2 for Down-C, 4 for Left-C, 6 for Right-C.

You're right you can't use Home/Delete/End/PgDwn for the C-buttons on every computer because not all keyboards support this as it turns out; unfortunately it's the default Jabo's DInput just uses.

More recently, I started using this config for C-buttons thanks to somebody else:
'L', 'P', '"', ';', for Left-/Up-/Right-/Down-C buttons

He was the ONLY person, who actually sat down in a discussion with me and was willing to debate what the best keyboard controls should be!

The rest of y'all niggas were too passive, so I adopted his controls into my keyboard plugin.

tl;dr OT, two good methods for C-buttons on keyboard
