Pressing Start and another button at the same time is hell (at least in the case of an action game), you need to change the position of your fingers since the Start button is not ready to press while in the usual stance. That's something you want to avoid at all costs.
Well on a 6 button pad was not that difficult to press X and, B or C, I thought it was similar with the 3 button pad.
Anyway, my input reading routine is changed to (3button only):
Start+Left => X
Start+Up or Start+Down => Y
Start+Right => Z

I use X, Y and Z to show "items menu", "map" and "save menu" so not really action buttons, I think it can work.

START + button is easy... if you push start with the other thumb and the buttons like normal. You just have to let off the dpad for an instant.

On a stock 6 button, MODE is the perfect selector button as it's on the right shoulder. Of course, on the 6 button, you probably don't need the selector.

There's also the START + dpad mentioned earlier. Then you push START instead of a button while keeping on the dpad with the other thumb.

It's easy doing it once, but while playing it's not very comfortable.

As long as you disable dpad input while start is down for the ergonomic side works, the be used side feels estrange at the beginning. To fight that, in my case, the start button will also be used to access the same functionality.

I got the test-carts and boxes yesterday! They are awesome! Way better than I could have hoped for.
So super happy! :D

Will do a proper update on the KS site and here on Sunday, showing pics and stuff of it.
