As people may (or may not know), the Xbox One now supports USB keyboards.

Is there anyway this could be supported in the game? Specifically with regard to the controller options screen, it would be nice if we could assign some buttons for moving your seat, looking left/right/up/down (I use a TX Thrustmaster wheel), cycle motec, brake bias etc. Our PC brethren have access to this feature, I'm sure it could be implemented.

Pretty please?

Have you tried the custom controller option and adding the key bindings yourself

This issue is that the game only really supports one controller input at once currently, SMS will need to comment if two inputs is possible. If you combine them through a USB hub would that work? I suspect it would create some input lag though.

The best way should be through Xbox Smartglass. That would be awesome if you could put some keys to the tablet

I like juicy's idea, that would be amazing. Even for stuff like switching off traction control or adjusting brake bias.

I have attached my USB keyboard while my wheel is on, it works for t'internet and messaging (so the Xbox knowsnits there) but not on the control assignment page in Project CARS.

I know it's a bit of a push and I'm not sure whether the XB1 would support it, but it would be great if we could get support for button boxes.

There is no RSB and LSB on the wheel (although there should be). Use your pedals to navigate those menus.

Have you assign the stick buttons ? it took a while before I realized that I could use them, I have my stick buttons assign to ignition and starter.

What stick buttons are you talking about?

Press left & right stick down.

Of course. But have you seen, what all would be possible to define? For all possibilities you need 3 controllers and more . :) Console Users need a solution.... Tablet, Smartphone, USB Keyboard .....

Search for "allow wheels to have more buttons" on feedback.xbox.com and give it an upvote! Basically MS have limited the input protocols on Wheels so the more upvotes hopefully the faster this can be fixed!

Bummer, I'm just about to order a Microsoft All-in-One USB keyboard. But if it is not very usable within Pcars, I think I will not order this one. I need more options to assign buttons.... I have a TX wheel and I can't map enough buttons..
