Suggested N64 - Xbox Controls

Ok I think I said I'd make this a while ago but now I will.
If you're not aware of the fact that N64 games can be played on emulators on a PC you may want to brush up on that a little.
Anyway, I play BK often on my N64 emulator (Project 64), I downloaded a program which allows me to use my PS3 controller (USB connected) on my PC for all sorts of games. I configure it for Project 64 as it's a lot easier to use it than a keyboard, believe me.
For the below information I will change my PS3 buttons into N64 buttons and then into the Xbox. Maybe an explanation to why I put it like that too.

Start - S - Start - That's an obvious one isn't it?
Select - ? - Back - Unused on my setup
X - A - A - Jumping etc, similar placement
Square - B - X - Attacking etc, similar placement
Triangle - C-Up - Y - Easy to change view or fire eggs fast
O - C-Down - B - Makes sense to put it beside C-Up as they're similar
Left - L - Left - Not in use, possible C-Left, I found too awkward
Right - ? - Right - Not in use, too awkward for C again
Up - ? - Up - Not in use, used to use as C-Up
Down - ? - Down - Not in use, formerly C-Down
L Analogue - Analogue - L Analogue - Moat practical analogue layout
R Analogue - ? - R Analogue - Too hard to config on PJ64 but on Xbox should be camera control
L3 (click) - ? - LS - Not used, possible L
R3 - ? - RS - Not used, possible R (SM64 setup)
L1 - C-Left - LB - Easy to Talon Trot (with R2) and change camera
R1 - C-Right - RB - Easy to Wonderwing (with R2) and change camera
L2 - R - LT - I use this if I want to center the camera behind Banjo...
R2 - Z - RT - Used a lot and is easily accessible with middle finger all the time

-The directional buttons can be used for the directional buttons on the N64 but they aren't really used in Banjo Kazooie that much.

-This isn't official it's just the way I use it.

-Any suggestions? Feel free to post.

-If that's too confusing I can do a picture if you really want me to.

Well, did you know that an original Xbox controller is near a USB? It has an extra wire for lightpens. And I had some unused extension cords.


You fill in the rest.


Anyway, I just mapped everything to it's normal buttons. And Z got hooked up to X. :B
