    Xbox Controller button mapping issues

    I've played this a lot on Xbox, got PC long ago and am returning to this version for good. I'm trying to make my controller settings as close to what I had before, with some minor exceptions. For anyone here that's played with a controller with default console settings, you may know what I'm...

    Since Odyssey doesn't support VR, please give me back my gyroscope!

    Please Frontier, fully support the Playstation DS4 (and upcoming DS5) controller on PC. This includes GYROSCOPIC HEADLOOK, the best thing about ED for PS4. You already have the code from the PS4, you just need to implement it on the PC. Other games fully support the DS4, no special drivers or...

    Custom Configuration Files not Showing in Dropdown (Solved)

    As I'm sure MANY of you out there are going to experience, or have already experienced, the game loves to overwrite your keybindings. Lets start with the reason for this post: I use a gamepad to drive my SRV and the game kept overiding my profiles. Frustrated, I created a saved custom one per...

    Discussion Rate my setup! Spaceship Control Panel: DIY USB Controller

    First of all, sorry if this is the wrong forum subsection, I found this one to be the most "fitting". Since my posting in the Facebook group got an overwhelming response, I thought I'd post my new build to the forums as well. The perfect addition for my ED setup, ready to go for the next Season...

    I'm an outlier, as I prefer gamepad controller over K&M

    I just read an article that basically stated what I've seen in forums for years, that K&M is superior to a controller like the Dualshock 4. I actually felt that way myself when I first switched to console, because I lacked the fine motor skills in my thumbs, but having used a Dualshock for...

    HELP! DS4 Controller on PC has one radical "game-breaking" difference from PS4

    So I've migrated from PS4 to PC, and after two years of flying with the DS4, I'm most comfortable in just using this on my PC. Muscle memory is a power thing! Here is my problem: On PS4, buttons can serve both as primary functions and modifiers. Let me give you an example. If I want to tap the...

    What joystick/controller do you use?

    Out of pure interest, what controller/joystick do you all use for playing Elite? I use the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X and it has proven to be a great joystick - it has many programmable buttons and axes and the push lever can be disconnected, which is convenient if you want the throttle on...

    ED PS4: Does Advanced Dock Assist break controller customization?

    After playing through the tutorials successfully using a remapped set of controls that worked much better for me, I launched into Solo Mode last night, only to find that none of my controller mappings came across. I assumed this was just a tutorials <--> main game thing, and proceeded to rebind...

    Add HUD Mode to Ship's Function Panel

    Dear Frontier, please consider adding the HUD mode (Combat / Analysis) to the Ship Function Panel alongside lights, night vision, etc. There is plenty of room for another option on my screen, and with the limited number of button mappings one can have on a gaming console with controller (no...

    Xbox One controller

    I recently purchased a Razer Wolverine Ultimate control pad with the belief that the additional buttons and triggers would be beneficial for Elite. Stupidly it was a bit of an impulse purchase and now that I have read a number of reviews I realise that the additional buttons can only be...

    Frustration Overload

    Come on FDev, sort this out. We were promised great things wtih Chapter 4. But so far all I'm getting is random crashes, and half-finished functionality (cough cough...CODEX!) Don't get me wrong......I love the game, the lore, the styling, the over all mechanics. I like what you've done with...

    Nintendo Switch Pro Controller

    I realise it's not on the list of supported gamepads, but is anyone using the Nintendo Switch Pro controller for Elite on PC? I've got a decent HOTAS setup that I'm happy with but I think a gamepad makes more sense when driving the SRV. Since I've got a Nintendo Switch and have been thinking...

    ∞ Limpets?

    The whole debate of infinite probes has me thinking, why not infinite limpets? Hold on, let me explain, as it actually makes a ton of sense. Ignoring the prospector limpet (I'll get to this), limpets are finite because they expire. There's really no reason for this. My SRV doesn't "expire", nor...

    XboxOne Default Controler Binds for PC Version

    I have re-created the XBoxOne Binds for those peeps who play on the PC with an Xbox Control Pad (or any control pad with the same button layout) so that you don't have to :) - It's as accurate as I can get it. Download, extract, and copy this file to: [GAME INSTALLATION...

    Electronics Module & Pooled Limpet Storage

    Two somewhat related issues: I'm not a big fan of "splitters" in general, as I think the various combinations of internal modules help to give different ships some individual "character". But the shortage of size 1 slots, in particular, is dire. If you want to go exploring in an Imperial...

    UNable to set lateral thrust/alternate control on Xbox controller

    Hey all I'm fairly new to the game and BOY HOWDY is there a lot to take in. I'm trying to set up my alternate control scheme with lateral thrust (left and right) so that I can use it when docking. On my normal setup, I have the left stick for up/down thrust and left-right yaw. On the right...

    I need some help/input/ideas regarding the throttle and thruster controls on the DS4

    Hello everyone, I could use some help, ideas or input from all you fine people. I am using the PS4 controller and I am quite happy with most of its controls and have no intention of buying the HOTAS. But one aspect irks me: The throttle and thrust controls in combat. Just for comparison, these...

    PS4 Controller Speaker

    Wasn’t sure wether to put this in here or the suggestions section but it can be moved if necessary. One of the unique features of the PS4 is that we have a speaker on the controller. Should our ship computer voice and other comms such as station docking use our controller speaker rather than...

    Hardware & Technical Working Steel Battalion Controller.

    Howdy, I'm new to Elite. So new in fact I haven't even started playing the main game yet. I've spent the majority of my time trying to rewrite the old Steel Battalion Controller script for this game. I've finally got what I consider the most important parts done. I've changed quite a few things...

    Controller / Joystick Configuration Profiles

    Good Afternoon All! I have a suggestion as I am an Xbox One X player with the Hotas Joystick designed for ED. I play in two locations, one in the living room, and secondly my office on two different consoles. While I do not take my joystick back and forth with me between consoles, resetting...
