PS4 Feature Request: Custom Controller Button Mapping

    Hello Kunos!

    I've been having a terrific time playing the game with the t300.
    I am a big fan of drifting so I've got a custom hand break mod that taps into the buttons steering wheel and the base.

    At first it was set to R3 and then I went through troubles to map it as O button to use as the handbrake just for Assetto Corsa. Although the process is a bit tedious, it was worth it in the end.

    I've been having a great time and saw an update when I open up the game yesterday. I decided to download without knowing it will mess up the button mappings. Now in version 1.09, there are no more presets that can use O button as the handbrake.

    I'm not sure why you have decided to do that in the first place but it's just made players like me have a harder time and less incentive to play the game.

    We really need a custom button mapping settings. There are also players who wired the handbrake to the R3/L3 buttons on T300 bases.

    After all, it's a simulation game and some sim players have modded hardwares that we have invested into so that we can have more immersive experience. I am not planning to rewire my handbrake anymore. I will probably stop playing the game unless the custom button mapping is patched in.

    Sorry, Kunos. You've created such a great game to enjoy on consoles but ruined it with ridiculous decision makings regarding settings. I hope you will patch the custom button mapping in some day.

    Until then...

    +1 on that.
    My handbrake is wired to L3 on t500 base so only good for changing the view..

    Yup! my suggestion list is:
    1. personalized button mapping.
    2. keyboard compatibility.
    3. UDP applications.
    4. online and offline leaderboards.
    5. penalties & track limits in career.
    6. penalties & track limits improved.
    7. more FoV settings.

    I wouldn't hold your breath about custom button mapping. It's been my biggest gripe of this game and one that's a massive own goal in comparison to other sim games that do allow it. I too have a modded handbrake and rocker switches controlling what I want it to control but it's all for nothing. I sent a ticket to ask directly about the possibility of custom button mapping and the reply was no, cause not enough people want it.. Seriously kunos, give us the freedom and immersion we deserve in a racing game. Maybe we need a petition guys? ..

    Passed that through Google Translator, they meant "we don't have a clue about how to do it without breaking the game".

    Did they wait to be asked to do it on PC? From all my racing games on the PS4, it's the only one that hasn't that feature.

    Seriously poor show from a "small but dedicated team"
    AC is the only console sim racing game (I'm on PS4) that will not allow user definable button mapping and I'm simply staggered by the response you got from your ticket !
    Button mapping is without doubt the most basic requirement, and one of the most requested features next to private lobbies, do Kunos / 505 Games not even bother to visit their own SUPPORT forums and see what the players are requesting ?
    Judging by the lack of replies by an official source, I guess not ! Unless that is, it's a post praising the game, then you get a response. Oh, of course the standard cut/paste reply to questions like these are "raise a ticket with 505" ! That's fine if you have a pretty specific problem, but seeing as we're a community on a public forum, surely it's better if we had replies that everyone can see and respond to, rather than a one to one discussion ?

    +1 to everything on this thread...

    also...more drift cars and courses please!! it is quite obvious that players love drifting in this game...and deadzone adjustment on wheels! epsecially with force feedback...

    and why isnt the drift track in practice like every other course?

    Hey guys i have a youtube channel and currently working on doing a mod and moddifying all the buttons. heres my plan.

    Since i have replaced my wheel with a 350 mm wheel i no longer have the buttons. IMAG0258.jpg

    I will be running all the wires to a ports on the side of my t500

    Then create a buttonbox that will have plug in ports for square, circle, traingle, and x, this would allow us to attach any mod to our wheel. thus converting the buttons on the wheel to a button box that we can plug in externally. then have plugin ports on the box to add our e- brake, shifters, ect. doing this mod we would no longer need to wait for a company to add button reassignment. it will lool something like this, no ports in the front though, and more buttons to match the button count on the wheel
    With having the ports on the side, i will later create a gt wheel with quick connect with a coil plug attched to the wheel, so when we connect the wheel we can plug in that spacific wheel. It would have more of an official racing look and feel.
    Started the process already. created a plate for the deep dish wheel. doesnt look pretty yet. will be wrap in carbon vinyl, and buttons will be addes along with a slot for a old phone to use telemetry on project cars IMAG0285.jpg
    Currently still working on my diy hydraulic e- brake. once i am done i will start with this build. it will be a diy.

    Now by changing the camera view you also change the brake bias. Man, now it is so necessary the mapping and keyboard compatibility... Some spectacular cars are boring (P1 and 918), you cant change camera view in some cars in order to not have to abandon the race, claxon and HUD it in the same button (wich is better than having just the HUD, but when i want to use the claxon I have to use it again in order to leave the HUD in the correct way)...

    Mapping and keyboard compatibility is added to the list of things that must be added like private lobbies, apps and leaderboards.

    Full customisation should be a requirement of all games - if anything it would enable more people with disabilities to game, left-handed people for example.

    And, while we're at it, can we ditch the horn (who the hell uses a horn in a racing simulator, 5 year olds?) and replace it with something useful? We'll need a button to open a selection of in-car apps at some point (hope this isn't just wishful thinking) so we can move the console versions closer to the 'full' version of the game.

    Im not a 5 years old, and I find it very usefull in Assetto Corsa.

    If I crash with someone and I want him to know, in a very fast and clear way, that Im sorry and it was a mistake and not a deliberated push, I use the horn and I let him pass. Or maybe to let know another person that it didnt let you enough space. Or maybe to advise lapped drivers to let you pass (in case they dont see you flashing the lights).

    And also, real cars have horns, if you didnt notice it.

    Real cars have ashtrays but they're not used when racing. Just seems a waste of a button to me, especially when we're limited anyway.

    Don't recall hearing a horn used in a real race, lights work well enough and I'd assume someone beeping was angry - but then I'm English and using the horn isn't a national past time.
