View Full Version : Button Configuration

18th June 2005, 03:02 AM
I have been experimenting with various button configurations.
My current configuration is as follows:

X Accelerate
R1 Fire Weapon
O Change View
L1 Drop Weapon
L2 Left Air Brake
R2 Right Air Brake
Square Hyperthrust
Δ Rear View

I like having the weapon buttons on the shoulder buttons, but using square for Hyperthrust is awkward, especailly when you hit 25% energy and it stops working.
Any configuration suggestions would be appreciated.
Also does anyone use a neGcon for racing? If so what settings / configuration do you use?

X - Accelerate
O - Hyperthrust
Square - Rear View
Δ - Change View
L1 - Drop Weapon
L2 - Left Airbrake
R1 - Fire Weapon
R2 - Right Airbrake

This is the best setup, and the only one that works, why? Your thumb doesn't leave the X button, because the O is conveniently placed.

i use the same set-up as Dimension for the neGcon. unfortunately this set-up destroys replays

Yeah, but on the flip side it destroys ghosts too :hyper

I use the standard DS setup. Works just fine for me :D

Dimension and Lance that is indeed the way forward with the neg.8)

Skipper, on a Dual Shock you could try:

X- go
L2 and R2 airbrakes.
L1 hyperthrust
R1 fire weapons.

this leaves drop weapon as harder to access, on circle square or triangle but you can get rid of most weapons you don`t want just by firing/activating them, although this can be distracting (for me anyway) as for some reason I sometimes can`t stop myself watching the rockets fly off into the wall or space. :?

On Pure I use triangle for go which means I can easily drop the back of my thumb onto circle to fire and square to discard without letting off the power. Maybe something like this could work for wipeout 3 but I`ve never tried it. Maybe you could try as above with triangle for go and circle for drop weapon.

i've become so used to my neGcon configuration that last night when i played WO3 with DS-type controller, i used triangle for go, circle for hyperthrust, x for drop, square for use pickup. i assigned changeview to R1, the rest as default

Thanks everyone.
I like the idea of using the triangle (DS) or B (neGcon) for thrust.
Rocking your thumb back to circle (DS) or A (neGcon) for hyperthrust feels natural.
I'll give some of these configuartions a go, and let you know how I get on.

I just use the DualShock... but all I do from the default config is swap the fire and drop buttons. I find it easier / more comfortable to reach the square button while still holding x - I press x with the inside of my thumb knuckle/joint, rather than the end of my thumb.

Do you mean you use the 'sticks'? 8O!!?

I use the left stick for steering.
x = go
square = fire
circle = drop
triangle = camera
r1 = thrust
l1 = look back
r2/l2 = airbrakes
