I started playing this game on Linux and I thought the controls were way too sensitive, quite often moving to an adjacent side meant moving too far, resulting in me trying to slightly tap the keys with bad results. I can't beat 20s.

I tried the Windows version and I was surprised to see I was able to blast my record to 38s without really trying. The controls really felt different.

The thing is, I'm playing on two different computers and I can't switch OS. So I can't say if it's really the software or if it's the keyboard or the screen resolution that makes it different. One could say I just got better by practicing, but I went back to the Linux version and nope, still quite bad at it.

Linux version: played on a netbook with a resolution of 1024x600
Windows: played with an old classic keyboard with a screen resolution of 1280x1024.
VVVVVV Tech Support / widescreen?

Hi, is there a possibility to have the game not distored while playing in fullscreen on a wide screen? Something like black bars on the side would be perfectly fine with me.

Also, native controller support?
VVVVVV / Suggestions for a hypothetical v1.3

Ok so I have not found subjects of this kind, so I guess I'll start one.

I have bought VVVVVV through Steam and finished the main adventure (20 trinkets). I find it really enjoyable, but I have a few gripes about the control design (silly things really):

- Why separate Enter and Esc? Enter brings the map, the recap of your progress, your stats, quicksave. Why not add the option to quit somewhere in there? (two button pad, Master system/generic DE-9 gamepads)
- Switch off the sound in the Esc Menu. The music is great, but pausing the game should pause the music too so you can, like, answer the phone.
- The design i actually like the most, a four button scheme: Button 1 (gravity, forward in menu), Button 2 (talk, read computer, backward in menu), Select (Map, progress), Start (Pause, quicksave, quit game). Think NES pad here.
- An option to disable up/down to invert gravity. Some people use it, some other don't. I mapped the four directions on my pad (to use it in the menus), and quite often I changed gravity unwilingly (notably under stress in the tower)

- Is it moddable? I would like to share some insane challenges with other users.
- Make the loading screen fullscreen too? I like it.
