    Numeric Keyboard - problem

    Hey there, i came up with the idea to buy me a Numeric Keyboard and use it as s button box alongside my T300RS wheel. So after i got one with excitement i found the idea is there and many are using it. Never mind that i was quite happy with the result, BUT, encountered a distracting problem - the Arrow Keys, are always mapped as direction keys for looking left, right, up, down. You can assign a function to them, but the camera will always move, alongside the added function. Numpad does not change anything. Now because this is PS4 and no PC, i cannot hard or soft-code any changes to the keyboard at all. Is there a workaround ? Can we get a small fix on the console side, so those keys are not hard coded in the game or at least to have the Numpad function added, so we can ignore the direction inputs ?

    The idea is great, it works, can look quite good, and is a easy way to add more on the console side. So any devs around here wanting to help ?

    I have tested with GT Sport, and actually the game can distinguish between NumPad On / OFF, so maybe it really can be added ? fixed easy ?

    How did you manage to let GTS know there is a keyboard/botonbox present??

    Just plug it in the ps4, the console registers it. Ingame you can navigate, somewhat, the menues with the keyboard.

    Any mod / dev can comment here ? I have fitted the pad on my rig and it's a great addition and will be absolutely superb if we can have the Arrow Keys removed on default.
