author's profile notes
This profile is compatible with any standard PC Gamepad, Xbox 360 Controller, Playstation (PS4, PS3, PSX), or any similar devices
With the Interplay sale on I just had to get Descent 1 and 2 (uh, and 3). Here's a profile I made for Descent 1 & 2. Each game is a separate config.

Make sure the controls are set to default on both games. If you're using Descent 2 rebirth, you'll need to set the Reverse button back to the default of Z.

Controls you might want to change: bank left and right (d-pad left and right) and slide up and down (the shoulder buttons, L1/R1).

Enjoy, material defenders!
