I don't think that there's a thread about this yet..? If there is, sorry.
-------
Anyway..
I doubt it you'd know what the controls will be right now, but what would you want them to be?

Personally, no matter what, I think "X" should be "Whip". Cheesy
That would just be really easy to adjust to, y'know?

Maybe throwing items could be "Right Bumper". That would also be easy to adjust to.
What should "Run" be? "Left Bumper"? "Left Trigger"?

I'm just curious to what controls people would prefer for the XBLA version. You can't blame me, can you?
Controls are a very important part of games.

[ Controls matter! ]
Personally, to make the XBLA version of Spelunky better, they could make the controls customizable, like the PC version.

Anyway.. Share your thoughts. This thread probably doesn't really have much of a point, it's just random spelunky discussion.

P.S - If that moving text is annoying, ask me, and I'll remove it. Just making the message clear. Cheesy

Edit: Woo...   ..   ..200th post. Yay? ..

AHHHHHHH! Now I remember WHY I don't play with a controller!

Right Thumstick Click: Pause
A: Whip
B:Jump
X: Switch Items
Left Bumper: Run
Back (Select): Bomb ShortCut
Start: Rope Shortcut
Left Bumper: To buy items at Shops

Worse Yet: I can't change what buttons do what so far!.

MY PREFERRED Layout:
A: Jump
X: Weapon
B: Cycle Items
Right Trigger: Run
Left Bumper: Bomb
Right Bumper: Rope
Y: Buy from Shop
Start: Pause!

If my Logitech were a 360 controller my layout:

Control Pad: move/look/etc.
Left Stick: N/A
Back: N/A
Start: Pause
X: Action (whip/throw button)
Y: N/A
B: Jump
A: Item Switch
LB: Run
LT: Rope shortcut
RB: Purchase
RT: Bomb shortcut
Right Stick: N/A
Home: Win game immediately.

I agree with that. Anyway, nice combinations. I have to admit, they sound quite .. Comfortable.

@Arucard: "Home: Win game immediately."? That's..   ..PERFECT! Cheesy

Edit: Actually, there might be some new moves in the XBLA version. Well.. Let's hope so. Smiley

Edit: Y'know what, I'll post my preferred layout.

Control Pad Left: Rope
Control Pad Right: Bomb
Control pad Up/Down: Look
Left Stick: Move
Right Stick: N/A
Right Stick Click: Crawl until unclicked?
Back: Unpause / (If there are menus) Back to main menu
Start: Pause / Unpause
A: Jump
X: Whip, Throw, Shoot, etc.
Y: Scroll through bombs/ropes
B: Purchase
LB: Run
LT: Rope Shortcut 2
RB: Throw Item (Alternative Method)
RT: Bomb Shortcut 2

.. May need some tweeks.

Where would you get a USB connected-controller?
As in, I would like to play Spelunky with a controller.

Are they all basically the same?
What would I Google to find them?

They are basically all the same, quite a few seem to be based off of Playstation controllers, and as I said: Xbox 360 Wired Controllers can be easily used with your computer.

Well, I don't know about Macs...who knows.

I ought to get me one of those wired 360 controllers. There are so many games on the internet that allow usage of them, that would be much funner.

You can get a Logitech controller for between $10-$30 depending which type you want. 360 controllers are $40 unless you get it used, or an off-brand which may not be quite so compatible (not from Microsoft). Unless you already have a 360 controller, I would recommend Logitech.

Ah, what the heck, I think I would just use the keyboard.
Who needs controllers anyway?

I never really play video games outside of computer anymore. Smiley

I never knew you two knew each other in real life?
..Weird.

Now.. Anyway..

I do have a 360 controller. Two, actually.
But they're wireless. Is there anything you can maybe download, or something like that, that you might know of, that would allow me to connect my wireless 360 controllers to my laptop?

If not, then, I'll consider getting a wired one. Smiley

Edit: Derek should probably make another forum for XBLA Spelunky. That way he wouldn't have to move heaps of the already-created topics from the "Spelunky" forum to the XBLA Spelunky forum that he probably will create. Well, I can't do anything about it. So.. Yeah. His choice. Hopefully he'll read this.

There is probably a way, but I wouldn't recommend it. I toasted all my USB ports trying to get a PS3 controller to work. It was recognized but didn't respond, and the much easier way around was to just buy a Logitech with analog sticks for what I wanted to do. If you can find a used wired controller in good condition, it's probably about the same price.

I'll avoid trying to use my wireless 360 controller with my laptop then.
I'll just avoid getting controllers for my laptop all around. I'll just use my friendly old keyboard and my good ol' "Lasts a year on one battery" mouse. Cheesy
