A profile that handles all camera movement, mouse movement and selection.
Has been battle worthy for me..

D-Pad left: cam tilt left
D-Pad right: cam tilt right
D-Pad up: Cam tilt up
D-Pad down: Cam tilt down

Right analog for mouse movement

Left analog for WSAD cam movement, Forward, back, strafe left and right.

L1: Left click
R1: Right click
R2: Cam up
L2: Cam down

Start = End turn.

Have to add these four buttons in game if you want them.

Set "Select all Siege weapons" to ( 7 ) in game control settings = A button
Set "Select all melee" to ( 8 )= X button
Set "Select all Cavalry" to ( 9 )= Y button
Set "Select all Missles" to ( 0 )= B button

Left analog button is Ctrl now and acts like a modifier key.

(You have to set that in your game controller config)
"Tell it Ctrl is your modifier key, in key settings." I used left ctrl.

Try it out, make more if you want by just holding the left analog in and pressing another button, while in the game controls config.

Left analog button + R2 = Select all troops.
Left analog button + L2 = Battle speed toggle.

Also the analog sensitivity has been ramped up to make the mouse move a lot faster..

Right analog button = shift.
