I've used controllers like this and they have always been just alternate buttons for what you have already. Just hitting them on a different spot on the control. Now if it was four totally new trigger/button axis for me it would be useful.

Quote from: h106frp on June 16, 2015, 01:31:19 PMYou have got me thinking a rocking paddle shift (like a steering wheel one) could easily be made to stick on the back of the 360 and wired instead of the corner buttons, i think this would be much easier to operate for gears without accidentally pulling on the triggers at the same time.

Quote from: h106frp on June 16, 2015, 09:54:43 PMActually seems to put the gear shift controls in a very comfy position and seems to work amazingly well for something made out of my bits box, nice and clicky. Maybe MS are on to something
Quote from: h106frp on June 17, 2015, 07:13:06 AMOne thing i immediately noticed was that it is nice to have the paddle well back from the controller grips so that you can still grip the controller is the usual comfortable way. Looks a bit odd but seems right in the hand The ones on the elite controller appear to be quite easy to activate by accident unless they are very stiff triggers.Might well develop this into something prettier for the new controller as i have never got on well with the shoulder buttons on any controller so generally wasted.@MaX, r.e. holding the controller weird.. holding my hands in a natural, comfortable position it seems that for me the shoulder buttons would need to be moved down, back and inboard about 20mm in each redirection to fall in a natural location (for digit 3) if using the triggers(digit 2) at the same time. Guess they have to design these things for everyone, male/female from age 5 and up so the compromise dimensions will not suit everyone
