Configuration

Controls

I use an official, wired, XBox 360 controller. So A=south, B-east, X=west, Y=north.

I've tried a Switch Pro Controller, but no analogue triggers, and doing diagonal flips, both felt weird; and a PowerA 360 controller, but the stick felt like it wasn't as sensitive to small movements.

Anyway, this's how I currently map my buttons.

Left stick Steer
Right stick Move camera
A Boost
B Scoreboard
X Jump
Y Camera toggle
LB Powerslide / Air roll left
LT Drive backwards
RB Air roll right
RT Drive forward

Controller Troubles

Suddenly my Xbox 360 controller stopped working in September 2019. To fix it I followed these instructions and went into Big Picture mode, then Settings > Controller settings, and unchecked all the options there. Didn't need to restart Steam either.

Since then re-enabling the XBox 360 controller option has started working, though I'm not getting any force-feedback (in this particular game only)

Later some force-feedback worked, but mostly UI rather than in-game stuff :/

And in June 2020 the controller stopped working again~ so back to step one.

Modding

There's a popular mod called Bakkes Mod, which allows for loading plug-ins which enable all sort of changes: custom levels, fancier training packs, UI additions, etc. I haven't tried it, but found some links indicating it works in Wine too.
