Actually, This is REALLY close to my pro setup as wellI use a Pro Controller and change the controls up to play it like a SNES platformer.
Y - Regular Attack
X - Throw
B - Jump
A - Special
R - Guard/Roll
I disable the Tap Up to Jump thing, the right control stick is used for 'Tilt' attacks and I put the stick sensitivity to Low.
I wonder how many pro-Smash players would have their eyes bleed from reading this.
The only thing that is different is that I have shield on the X and grab on R(and stick sensitivity on normal) but generally this feels WAY better than the normal controls
I changed GC around too. I don't like using pressure sensitive shoulder buttons for things that aren't pressure sensitive if I don't have to, especially not in a high action game as this
I just noticed that I have the buttons on the same ones as the pro, the layout is just different, so that was a waste of time typing that out.
Jumping is the thing you do most in the game, so that should be on the main button I feel, with easy access to both attack and special. I also disable tap jump, A+B smash and rumble. I put tilt on the C-stick and Jump on L on both schemes, but honestly I never use both much. I know the C-stick is super handy probably but as a vet from smash 64 I just never learned to use it.
The downside is that I can never go back to melee anymore, but Ultimate is my favorite so its not that big of a deal.
