    Default How do you play HD?

    Hello all,
    Just a quick question (I searched but couldn't find anything), is what setup on the pad do you use?

    E.g. d-pad only or pitch and steering using the sixaxis controller?

    Also, I've noticed that when you push up and down on the d-pad, the ship lifts it's front end or drops it, does this help with the control of the ship around the track? (I play zone a lot).

    personally i use the analog stick for all things steering and pitch but that's mainly because d-pad gives me monstrous blisters. i find the d-pad a lot more consistent when pulling of BRs (or sometimes failing miserably), which is a bit annoying. pitching around the tracks helps a lot i find. i'll wager a lot of faster people around here will back me up on that. I also changed airbrakes to L1 and R1 which i find much easier and i get cramp less often.
    there's my two cents.

    Standard layout (slightly modified):
    [] Fire
    O Absorb
    X Thrust
    /\ Change camera
    L1 Left Airbrake
    R1 Right Airbrake
    L2 Voice chat
    R2 Look back
    D-Pad
    Motion: Pitch only

    Sensitivity:
    Thrust: 10%
    Airbrake: 10%
    Motion: 100% (Not sure anymore)

    Yes, pitch helps going up hills and down slopes. You should try it! Although in Zone it doesn't really matter, as the ship is kinda glued to the track (For gameplay reasons) and behaves the same way no matter what the pitch in this case.

    Same settings as Darkdrium for me, except for the airbrakes : 30% sensitivity

    just as an additional question, is it worth changing brake/accel sensitivities now that i'm used to default. i was never sure what affect it had so i just left it. cheers fasties

    I use a USB SEGA Saturn controller, it has the best d-pad ever! The shoulder buttons are nice and clicky too. I got the black version of this.

    The button setup is as follows:
    A - Absorb
    B - Accelerate
    C - Use pick up
    X - Voice
    Y - Look back
    Z - Change view
    << and >> - Airbrakes

    As far as I'm aware I haven't touched the default air brakes settings. I'm not going to change them as I've got used to them now. The other settings are the default as well, I don't see any need to change them. I can't use SIXAXIS tilting because the controller doesn't support it; I'm fine with that though because I never used it anyway .

    Are you f*king serious?! That's what you beat me with?! OH. MY. GOD.
    Just out of interest: what exactly is the benefit of that controller over a DS3?

    Are shoulder buttons analog on that Saturn controller?
    Or it doesn't matter?

    I remapped the airbrakes to L1 and R1 and set the airbrake sensitivity to 60%, enough for slight adjustments and enough to compensate if you need some serious turning to happen

    I dunno why they put the airbrakes on L2 and R2, they aren't optional, occasional buttons you press...and since they're analogue, the travel is way too much.

    Amorbis, nice choice there!

    I have been looking for a good controller where the d-pad isnt just 4 separate tall-ish buttons with a huge chunk of space inbetween them. The Sega controller looks great, you could just rest your thumb in the middle there...

    Personally I use stick for steering and motion for pitch. Stick feels a little wobbly at high speeds (maybe because I'm a nub still, only had this game for 3 weeks); I tried the d-pad and it felt steadier, and easier to correct the ship after being misaligned for whatever reason, but the d-pad just feels horrible under my fingers.
