i have been using a 360 controller for arma 2 and alpha. this has alwyas been the problem if u try to set it up yourself. I just got over it and use my RB for fire and like left trigger for zoom. my right joystick button is scope.. and my RTrigger is actually adjust honeslty works great!. just reconfigure and u will get it to work well.. i really think adjust stance on trig is awesome

Sure, I can remap it, but that doesn't really fix the problem and actually being able to set up fire button on triggers would really be nice.

you need to actually spend time and map all your keys i have to for my joystick this isn't a bug this is your personal preference they cant make a control scheme to please all hence why u can custom map this is a non issue

Did you even read the main post? When I set up my left/right triggers to FIRE, they do not work. It's exactly what it is, a bug.
