As you animate the pressing of the 0 button on the external device/controller , animate the pressing of the A button on the keyboard with everything greyed out. Do the same for all the ...

Follow real-world conventions, making information appear in a natural and logical order. and when you use English always keep the letters on right side. because obviously icons will be the main attraction. ...
