Logitech G13 with PS4
« on: 01:41 PM - 03/06/14 »
Thinking I might want to pick up the Logitech G13 since I really don't want to be using a full keyboard on my couch when I get my XIM4 with my PS4.

Been looking through some of the posts on the forums here and I had a question pertaining to the G13 and functionality with the PS4. I don't want to use the little joystick on the G13 for movement. That would frustrate me to no end. Would it be possible to program the joystick to function as the DS4 touchpad? it can be pushed down to click or just swipe it up, left, right or down depending on the game function required.

I know it's early in the process for the XIM4 PS4 release but was wondering if it would be possible?

that's actually a good question.  i have a G13 and i only use the joystick as a button (pressing it in), but it's an interesting thought about using it as part of the touchpad

Not bad with a shift key to a config that would do this even people that use the stick to walk could use it as touchpad.
If its technically doable mr_clark seems to have solved the touchpad problem at least for devices that have analoge joysticks.

Or do you mean that it would be totally no assist type? So that center on joystick would be the center of touchpad and then you can swipe with it? Dont think this would work in all cases.
