    PC2 on PS4 and external Keyboard

    Hi,

    do you know if PC2 will recognise an external usb keyboard or chatpad?

    I think about getting one to gain more control inputs, I.e. for camera movements

    Do someone also know whether the free camera mode of the PC version will also work on PS4? Is it the same hot key CTRL-K then?

    Thanks in advance

    I've only tried a bluetooth keyboard and it doesn't work to map buttons too, although if two keys are pressed you'll get a multi input warning.

    Im sure keyboards should be working at some point soon, as in pcars1.

    USB keyboards do not work. Currently you have a lot of functions but not enough buttons to assign without an external keyboard.

    Free camera (Ctrl+K) still works on external keyboards even though you can't map specific buttons.

    Perfect! Will it also be possible to assign the handbrake to an external shifter? Would be awesome for rally cross. Now it is still detected as R1 and L1 and so you are not able to use other features than shifting.
