Note: I haven't played the game more then a hour, but this just felt a lot more comfortable. If after playing for awhile I find something even better, or closer to a console feel, I will up date the PIN and upload it.

Note: Quick slots 3-4 I tend to use for health potions or the like.
Here's some profiles I just finished doing, since I decided to check this game out on sale with steam. Ps3 and Xbox configs here, even though I only use the ps3. I'm still lookin out for you Xboxers. :P
Pics for layouts and profiles attached.
1st pic is the PS3 layout:
2nd is the Xbox layout:

EDIT: Oops ps3 config was a double press for show quickbar, changed it to a hold like it should of been. Xbox config was fine.
I just made this profile for Risen, I did not used the Xbox 360 game manual mapping but instead used what works for me using other games from the same genre as an example (Fable, Oblivion, Fallout).

It can use some tweaking but it works.

*Edit: And yet another update

*Edit: Just updated it, made some noobs mistakes (yes, this is my first profile)
