    Lightbulb Suggestion for developers: solving the lack of buttons

    Hi eveyone,

    For us using wheels on the PS4, there is the known problem of "lack of buttons" to assign.
    What about having ways to combine buttons?

    For instance, the D-Pad defaults to: HUD, Cycle Lap, Windshield wipers, Lights.
    But I could use a combination like R2+D-Pad, and then assign 4 new functions to my D-Pad... for instance, setup all the "move seat"...

    Sounds like something feasible?

    I agree, a keyboard support would be great. As well as the support for the DS4 when one is using a wheel.

    Either USB keyboard/Bluetooth keyboard or control pad for those using a wheel would be a much welcomed addition.

    Keybord, DS4, are indeed options. But many settings must be done in-race.
    While driving, you must be able to adjust brake balance for instance, and is a bit hard to drop the wheel and choose something in a keyboard whilst driving over 250 Km/h
    I mean, all valid options, the more, the better, but for some settings I do focus on something I can perform at the wheel while driving...

    you can't use r1 on a wheel - it's already a 'shift' button - upshift to be precise
