I know this has been spoken about in other threads... But can external usb numpad support be implimented? They work but not properly. The arrow keys can be assigned, however they perform 2 actions at once. ( look left right up or down + assigned action) really annoying...

Indeed, the 2,4,6 and 8 keys are irremediably assigned to look up, down, right and left on my numpad... The good thing is that this forced me to build a button box.

Depends on the #pad but i think lock button fixes that

I wonder if it's related to the game, or the inherent nature of a numpad keyboard? Anyone have insight on this?

Don't have time to build a button box, and don't wanna spend over 100$ on one either lol.

what He said----^

It depends on the Pad, Some don't have that issue.
Mine Does. even if I turn NumLock on or Off the 2,4,6,8 are fixed as Look directions.

PS. They work great during a Replay.
Chase Cam.
Hold down 2, then use 4 and 6 to rotate the Cam.
It will remain in the rotated position as long as you keep 2 pressed.

Also works with Chase Cam and holding 8. the rotated view will remain rotated.
good for watching a close Pass from above.

Anyone know which models work and which don't? Would be great to have that info here, for others as well.

I just developed a programmable USB PCB for the PS4 / PC which you can buy your own buttons and plug into the PS4.

Works like a charm.

Its probably a little more expensive than a numeric keyboard but it takes all the hard work out of building a button box.

Alternatively I can supply the buttons / rotary encoders as well but it may be cheaper to buy them closer to you.

Sure I have uploaded images here.

But there isn't really much to it.

You connect the buttons to a common ground and the others to the 14 pins on the far side and it just works as per the images from my PS4.

It doesn't. Actually, I've never seen a keyboard or speparate numpad that works by now. I bought two numpads, one didn't work at all (that wasn't Project CARS' fault, the PS4 didn't recognise it in the first place), the second one has the issue of the hardcoded camera controls.

NumLock has to be on for this pad, because it will send NumLock-Key-NumLock to the PS4, if it's off.

Just fix the hardcoded mappings, please … :)
