My 'cube controller is no longer usable, and in a panic for something, ANYTHING better than that shitty remote/nunchuck combo, I picked up a Classic Controller. Dear god, the default controls on that suck HORRIBLY.
Later on, I managed to make it slightly more bearable by swapping the functions of b and y (b now jumping, and y being special). However, since I left a as normals, and x as jump, I have to think about ‘which’ piano to use for the lagless stomp, and instant air Wizard’s Foot with Ganon…
Should I go ahead and swap x and a? The main goal was to move Special off that godawfully-placed b button, and that was accomplished. I have tap jump off, so the jump buttons have to feel as natural as possible.
The other scheme I envisioned would make y special and b normals, ala the 64’s layout, but I would lose my quickstomping abilities, which is NO GOOD.
Also, what to do about L, R, Z- and Z+? those Zs are a bitch to get to for grabbing with, and throwing items is a pain to boot. Maybe I’m just used to a GC controller.
Any other successful Classic users should feel free to post up and contribute your setups and how to get comfortable with the thing.
