Hmm will try if my nacon revolution pro works. And I read somewhere yesterday that steam detects DS4 controllers. That would be nice. I have some old x360 controllers somewhere, but don't know in which shape those are...
Steam and most modern games have full DS4 support. For any games that don't there is DS4Windows which in some ways is actually superior to native support since it gives you full control over mapping so many things including the light and even does mouse emulation via the touchscreen, which you don't get otherwise. As long as you don't mind xbox button prompts in your games. (I played so much xbox 360 the prompts are more natural to me than the PS symbols. heh)
You'll probably want to set DS4Windows to hide the DS4 if you use it. Some games will try using the DS4, but it just causes problems. I think I only need it for Dark Souls and Sonic Racing, although I think I preferred it for No Man's Sky for the mouse emulation even though it's not necessary. Of course if you don't have it hide the DS4 you can probably have both. I haven't tried using DS4Windows just for the mouse emulation yet, but I'm sure it's possible. You can even setup profiles.

If you can set up your DS4 with DS4fix with the hide original controller mode then it should work fine. I tried it out on my Win 10 install and I couldn't get that setting to work in Windows 10, nor were the purported workarounds doing the trick. It's playable without DS4fix except that the D-pad doesn't work and you have to use the stick. So the main benefit of going DS4 is instantly lost. This is on the Win 10 Store version of the game (since it's crossbuy with the Xbox version I figured I'd go that route). Maybe steam handles DS4 better.

I grabbed a Buffalo classic SNES knockoff pad, because I could get same day shipping. I have an 8bitdo coming next week. For some reason Cuphead doesn't respond to any inputs so I had to use Xpadder to get it working with keyboard commands. That's only strange in that I was getting dual inputs off the DS4 when I ran DS4Windows, so it would clearly read a device that wasn't Xinput.
Anyway a decent d-pad is a nice upgrade for this game, especially for the plane levels. I've been trying to beat the game 0 deaths style. I'm through the problem spots in world 2 now, just got to get through the rest of 3 and the finale. I think the only real trouble spots left are Rumor Honeybottoms and maybe Cala Maria. Rumor especially messes me up with the randomness of the platforms, the weird triangle attack in phase 2, and also the middle attack with the bullets going up each side. And the final attack sometimes the fists are just in really tough spots. I also don't really have an optimal loadout.
