This has been brought up before, but to my knowledge it was mostly about using a PS3 controller. I found a nice little program called
DS4Windows that lets your PS4 controller plug into a Windows computer and act as a controller. Here's the configuration file (XML). In the past, I played with changing up the controls.ini file to match the controller inputs. This time, I decided to approach it from the other direction--to map the default keyboard controls to buttons on the DS4. I'm attaching my config file. Basic controls are as follows: I tried playing with steering using the Sixaxis gyro, but it proved too touchy. I also commented out a bunch of Joystick stuff in controls.ini; not sure if I needed to, but I think it might have been interfering. Left analog stick: Turn right and left, pitch up and down. Click to reset rudder to center. Right analog stick: Up to increase warp, down to reduce warp, click to set warp to 0. Right/left don't do anything. L2: Warp down R2: Warp up L1 Trigger: Impulse down R1 Trigger: Impulse up Directional Pad: Change main viewscreen to forward (up), back (down), left and right. Triangle: Toggle reverse Circle: Toggle shields X: Select closest (in case you might want to play both Helm and weapons; this is untested) Square: Request Dock Share: Main Screen Tactical PS: Main Screen Sector Options: Main Screen Status The touchpad controls the mouse on the screen, if you need that for whatever reason. After getting used to this, I can't fly any other way! If you try this config out, let me know how it works for you.

Nice! That's a slick setup.
