PS4 Possibility of pedal, brake and clutch on-screen indicators - Health reasons

    Good day.

    I only aquired a wheel over the weekend for the PS4.

    The problem is that I'm a Diabetic and have severe neuropathy in my feet and legs, along with circulation problems. This means that I rarely have any real sensation in my feet especially. Only in extreme case do I feel any pain in my feet.

    I've lost a couple of toes and a small part of my right foot due to amputations.


    Since the weekend I've got several bruises at the bottom of my right foot. This happens because I'm unsure of how much or how hard I'm pressing on the accelerator pedal. Obviously it is the same for the brakes, but I'm less on the brakes than the accelerator.

    I also have some cuts because my foot is slipping of the accelerator without me knowing. Only when I lose a lot of speed or the engine revs are low enough so that I notice, do I realize that my foot is off the gas.
    I'm using the G29 and it has progressive braking, which I can't really utilize, because I have no idea how much I'm braking.

    The risk for me is that cuts leads to the possibility of infections and infections and sores are bad news for diabetics. Also the bruising is a huge problem due to the poor circulation in my feet and the risk for further amputations are good with these problems.

    I can't really wear shoes. I've tried slippers, but they don't help that much. It did eliminate any further cuts though, but not bruising.

    I'm sure other people may enjoy the feature as well and if it comes with an option to display it or not, it won't be a problem for anyone?

    Kunos, please give our console-playing petrol-brothers their Apps, just like the dudes on the PC use them .
    If they┬┤ve got them already, ignore please .

    KS got some great apps to show you stuff, for instance a pedal-meter, a box with all 3 pedals shown in differing colours with the addition of a 4th bar to show your FFB (and if it is clipping) .

    Sorry to hear your situation man, I have a big heart and geniunely feel for anyone held back by something like your illness. Just out of suggestion as something to help maybe some socks, some that aren't too slippery or that have the rubber grip pads on the soles could help. I used to always wear socks on my on g25/g27 as I found it much more comfortable. The G29 is much harder than what the g25/g27 was which can actually be reverted by removing something I think but it's been much harder for me to get adjusted to it due to this new firmness, It does feel more progressively realistic but with no FFB you cannot tell where the locking point is easily on a consistent basis which is annoying and hindering even to myself as a fit young able bodied person. The telemetry for this would help greatly also.

    It may sound silly and not be helpful - but would the cages cyclists use help at all to stop you slipping? Modify your pedals... On screen indicators would be an unobtrusive addition I think and for some people essential - like yourself. Good Idea.
    Sorry to hear of your difficulties and wish you well for the future - good luck Hectic

    I've thought about some options of keeping my foot in place or at least in line with pedals, but haven't though about your suggestion. I will look into it.
    Thx.

  9. Thats a good idea. Just These cages are pretty hard. Maybe you could just cut off the back of some old shoes and fix the foreside of the shoes on the paddles? On the thrustmaster pqddles this should be possible I guess as the have holes which could be used for screwing the sole to the paddles, or eveb just fixing with a small line would be possible. Bike shoes for for click pedals would also already have holes in the sole whivh could be used.

    I really hope you can go on and that the pedal indicator will come.
