So I’ve seen a lot of people complaining about the control schemes for Halo 4. I personally am not thrilled with the changes to bumper jumper, which is what I use now. But then again these are working control schemes and very subject to change by launch.
I would like to suggest an idea and bring more attention to it because I think it would solve everyone’s problem of possibly having to deal with modified versions of their favorite control schemes:
Custom Button Mapping. For anyone who might not know what that means, it is basically a way to define what game actions are assigned to each button/trigger/bumper on the controller. If we were allowed to create our own layouts, people could play the way they want to. The only problem I see with this idea is that there might be some ultimate layout configuration that would put other people at a disadvantage. But honestly, if there was one, and people got frustrated by having it used against them, a smart player would just start using the new button layout to gain a more even playing field.
I think this would be a great idea, and would create a more immersive experience for the player by allowing he/she to create their own unique button layout. So lets get this idea out there so 343i sees it and considers it!
