Ok so that went well
First attempt with my DualShock4.....managed to launch from this station, accidentally deployed my hard-points and ended up shooting the station repeatedly as I tried to figure out which button retracted them. Instant bounty, dead.
Managed to do this 2 more times
Finally got the controls sorted out, (downloaded DS4Windows which makes things much easier, I think it's basically a 360-controller emulator) and managed to compete my first bit of cargo hauling. Really love the look and feel of the game and how you access the menus in the ship. With the DS4 the trackpad actually works so I use that to look around my cockpit and access the ship systems, although I can also use the right analog stick to do this if I wish. Still ironing out the kinks, for example I don't know how to exit super cruise using the controller
, only way I've managed it is to switch off my hyperdrive (or whatever it's called) mid-cruise which brings me to a violent stop, probably not too good for the ship
I think a combination of controller and keyboard will end up suiting me best.
So yeah, onwards and upwards
Try Square and Down on the D-Pad.
This is my setup on my 360-pad. I think it's the default layout so it should be the same for you. Just substitute the buttons for the PS equivalent (A=X B=O X=Square and Y=Triangle).
I'll spoiler this once they're working properly again.
