**EDIT: Further down in the thread it becomes apparent that this initial question isn’t the right question, but for the sake of people’s posts making sense I’ll leave my OP as-is below.
The issue I’m having is that SSF4AE on PC won’t let me configure the buttons on my Hori RAP stick - I can configure the keyboard and xbox controllers, but the stick is stuck on default controls no matter what I change. This means the controls are all nonsense basically. Is there some driver I’m missing? It seems like I should be seeing ‘Arcade Stick’ in the Button Config menu, but all I see are Keyboard 1 & 2, and Controller 1,2,3,4.**
Apologies if this has been asked before, I couldn’t find it in the arcade stick FAQ thread
I’ve just bought a Hori Real Arcade Pro VX SA Kai (this one) and, stupidly, I didn’t really think about what it’s button layout was before I got it. This is my first stick, never even tried one before, so I’m pretty clueless.
I just assumed the layout would be;
LP - MP - HP - All Punch
LK - MK - HK - All Kick
That just seems intuitive, and it’s the way my Madcatz fightpad is laid out so it’s what I’m used to.
Instead, the stick is;
MK - LP - MP - All Punch
LK - All Kick - HK - HP
I’m assuming this is one of the standard layouts - but what’s the logic of it? Is it more ergonomic or something? As a newbie coming to it, it feels really…random, especially the placement of All Kick and All Punch
I guess my question is - as a complete newbie, should I just stick it out and learn this new layout, or have I accidentally picked up a stick with a weird layout? If necessary I know I can just change my controls in the game, but I really don’t want to have to do that for every match when I play against people at meetups or tournaments.
(I’m playing on PC btw, so it’s an Xbox-compatible stick)
