Problems with controls
I have some troubles. Recently I decided to play Hotline: Miami again and noticed that it get some kind of massive update.

When I was playing previously, it was still old version, but with X360 gamepad support. I walkthrough the game with it.

No I run the game and it has some kind of launcher with different options: rumble, swap trigger/bumper and else. So I ran the game and noticed that controls for gamepad had been changed. I want to play with old control scheme, but I can't make it work - options in launcher have absolutely no effect. I tried to run as administrator, but it stays the same.

Hello, there are some people for whom the launcher has absolutely no effect and nobody knows why...

Couple things to look for, in the folder "C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\HotlineMiami"
  • Does the file "hotline.cfg" (openable with Notepad) changes when you edit the launcher options (it will update upon game launch)?
  • Does the file "debug.log" (openable with Notepad) has "Loading asset C:\Users\<username>\Documents\My Games\HotlineMiami\hotline.cfg from disk" as first line?

Yes and yes.

Yea well it's just like all the other people who have that problem as well. There must be a sensible explanation but I genuinely have no idea what it can be.

It didn't work for the others but you may want to try and run the game as administrator. As a last resort, if you absolutely want to play with the old control scheme, you can do so by using HotlineMiami_Original.exe instead of HotlineGL.exe (Updated version), but you'll miss out on the Updated version features.
