I think the original control input uses the "ASYX" Actions like what it used in the ZSNES Emulator.

About what I use to play SMBX, I use a keyboard but on a different setting so I can play Games very well and also play with 2 player as shown here:

So I tried renaming config.dat in the SMBX folder, and it reset the controls to default. Useful. :p

Defaults:
Spoiler: show
Keyboard:
  • Move: Arrow keys
  • Run: X
  • Alt run: S
  • Jump: Z
  • Alt jump: A
  • Drop item: Shift
  • Pause: Escape
Joystick: (Don't know if these are actually fixed or changed depending on joystick drivers...)
  • Run: 2
  • Alt run: 3
  • Jump: 0
  • Alt jump: 1
  • Drop item: 6
  • Pause: 7
What I normally use:
Spoiler: show
Keyboard:
  • Move: SZXC
  • Run: Numpad 5
  • Alt run: Numpad 4
  • Jump: Numpad 1
  • Alt jump: Numpad 2
  • Drop item: Numpad 6
  • Pause: Numpad 3
Joystick: (it's an old Logitech Dual Action. Works well, still.)
  • Run: 0
  • Alt run: 3
  • Jump: 1
  • Alt jump: 2
  • Drop item: 5
  • Pause: 4

I stuck with the default controls. Jump is Z, Run is X, Alt Jump is A, Alt Run is S, movement is arrow keys. Though I changed the drop item button to Left Shift and the pause button to Space. I play an odd way, I cross my hands over, so my right hand uses the jump and run buttons while my left and uses the movement keys, I was trying to figure out why I do this but it's probably because I'm left-handed and it's more comfortable this way.

I just use the default controls. I'm used to them, if I change it it won't make things any better.

Move: Arrow Keys

Alt run: E
Jump: T
Alt jump: R
Drop item: Space key
Pause: Enter

so I can lay my hand on the keyboard comfortably while playing.

I had a pretty good Player-2 setup as well that utilized "IKJL" to move around, but those controls got reset for some reason.

Same as me. I would probably fall off a cliff if someone changed my jump button. (I can imagine my brother seeing this post and changing my jump button on April 1st... :lol: )

I use a gamepad with controls more or less the same as other 2d Mario games.

I'm surprised I'm one of the few people who use an Xbox controller to play SMBX...

Run: X
Jump: A
Alt Run: Y
Alt Jump: B
Pause: Start
Drop Item: Select

My brother's controller is set up the same way, but the chances of him wanting to play SMBX are 1 out of 600,000
