Mapping a controller question.Follow

Most of the mapping choices are pretty self explanatory, but I can not figure out what the Target/Open Menu box actually does.

I am using a Logitech Dual Action USB controller.

In FFXI in order for me to navigate menus I had to map the controller so I had to hold down a button while using the directional pad to get around in the menus, and if I didn't hold down that mapped button the directional pad would actually move my character... So I am curious if I need to do the same thing here, or can I just map my left analog stick to the Target/Open Menu box and if doing the left analog stick like that wouldn't it mess me up if I need to move my character AND navigate whatever the Target/Open Menu box does at the same time?

tl;dr... WTF is the Target/Open Menu box for and how should I map it?

I believe you are referring to the ability to scroll through targets (think TAB button in FFXI). I mapped them to the D-pad on my 360 controller.

Heh, I have no idea what I am talking about because I have no clue what the Target/Open Menu section of the controller config actually does when in the game.

I can see the scrolling through targets thing like you said, but why the "Open Menu" wording on a section of the config that is for movement of some kind.

It also moves the cursor on open menus.

I have one thumbstick set to movement, one to camera control, and the dpad to target/open menu.

If I have the combat window open the dpad will change the open menu ie (combat window) and the thumbstick will still move me around. When I can cure without using a macro the dpad will change the target and the thumbstick will still let me move around.

I am going from memory so please forgive me if I am wrong.

I will recheck when I get home.
