I know there are a few discussions on gamepads but I need to ask too.
I have a PS4 Dualshock and the Status Nimbus XL for the AppleTV, both pair eventually but neither work well. I was using Gauntlet & Gauntlet II in Arcade.
The Stratus seems not to map the start button making it very tricky, the mappings are off for the buttons too - plus up/down seem to be reversed.
The PS4 is a bit better, mappings are still off (surely there are only a few major gamepads so why on earth not have some setting options to state which you have and then map them properly, an option to remap would be helpful too - not too much to ask is it?), anyway, it works a bit better, but as I move it is really awful, very unresponsive so of course by the time I am positioned the character dies.
My question (apart from why no settings), is, are there any controllers that actually work, has anyone used them in gauntlet and do they perform well?
I don't want to buy a different one and then find it has the same (or new) problems.
Surely if you require a gamepad then the least you can do is make sure there is one that works properly and then tell people what it is!!
