Hi,
I'm making a shmup coming out on Steam soon. Currently working on controller support. Obviously buttons will be re-bindable but what does everyone prefer for default buttons on a Xbox controller?

There are only two button - primary fire and special fire. These are currently X and R1 respectively. Thoughts?

If they're rebindable I don't think it's something to sweat over, but X and R1 sound like a solid default. I use that configuration for certain steam games.

Put in DS4 support in too if you want to have the broadest possible support for the game.
X and O should be default in that case imho.

If you only have two buttons, use face buttons. Don't go to the shoulders unless you have three or more.

The most natural face buttons are the ones that form a line with the user's thumb, so he doesn't have to shift it side to side. That would be X & A on an Xbox controller and square & X on a Dual Shock.
