KSP PS4 Button Cheat Sheet

Question

Is there a pdf or word document anywhere that has all the buttons for PS4 control is KSP?  I did a google search and searched the forum with no luck although sometimes I am not good at searching the right things.  Something easy to print out and keep next to you while you are learning how to play would be awesome so that I don't have to constantly go to the controls menu to see what buttons I need to hit to do things.  The game is awesome on PS4 from what I have played so far.  The button controls are very good but I just need more info!!! Thanks a ton and keep up the great work!

 

Mods: I asked this question also in the Technical Support section for PS4 and XBOX1 so please feel to delete or move on of the entries.  Sorry about that.

Extracted these KSPedia Screens for you guys so someone else doesn't have to - hope that's useful and saves some time

Here is a quick rough screenshot version of the PS4 control mapping. Edit: During flight.  Will put up mapping for VAB next.

It looks fine to me. Great job @Taipan

The pictorial version can be found in KSPedia which is the book icon with a rocket on the cover. Under controls, you will find a section that shows all of the control mappings. KSPedia is almost full screen and there is a pause button top right that will cease the game while you browse.

Hi Taipan, have you checked out the ? icon in the console versions app launcher?

It will show you controls for your version, and is context sensitive so won't show EVA controls while you're in docking mode for example.

Afaik there's no document outside KSP yet, but keep an eye on the Wiki :)

I think he meant outside of the game. We do know about the help section in game which is awesome, but still I would support a cheat sheet.

Keeping an eye out for the WIKI though.

Yah I know about the ? Icon.  Thanks for the quick response.  As Nailach mentioned, a cheat sheet I could print out and have next to me while I play would be much easier.  I could look at that instead of having to move the cursor to the ? Icon.  I'll took a look at the WIKI but I don't see anything related to PS4 in there.  Thanks!

There is also KSPedia, again within the game, but shows the controls laid out relative to the physical controller.  Each topic shows the control mapping pictorially.

We can look into providing a cheat sheet, but if you have a printer, taking a screenshot of the open KSPedia screens and printing them may be viable in the short term.

Thanks @Squelch  I am at work now so can't take screenshots (I wish I had my PS4 at work although my employer would not be happy).  I'll try to take some tonight and see if I can't put a simple word document together before someone beats me to it.  If someone else beat me to it, I wouldn't be too bummed lol

That's great @Gutterboy44, but please be aware that the (?) button is context sensitive, so is liable to change depending on where you are in the game. That particular menu is while you're in flight for example.

I can do VAB next. Figured while flying is probably when you would want the sheet as mousing over the ? can be a pain. A little easier to manage in VAB.

@gutterboy44  Any you can get me screen shots of would be awesome!  I only spent 2-3 hours playing last night so I am not even sure what different areas have different (?) Button information.

PDF's setup so far of what @gutterboy44 sent me.  Can anyone do a quick check of this for accuracy?  @squelch Is this ok if it gets posted here?  Should it be put somewhere else?  And how do I even post an attachment...I click insert other media and I click insert existing attachment but I don't know how to put an attachment in there?  Sorry probably another dumb question...

@Taipan can you put it on dropbox? Ideally it needs to be on the wiki if anyone's willing.

@Squelch could take a look, it looks neat and tidy though, thanks for doing this.

I saw a guy streaming who brought up some new center-of-the-screen menu to raise and lower his landing gear.   It was a black half circle with a blue line on it.

sweet thanx,  i hadnt really thought to look there.  i think those are options to do while time is slowed to allow you to do things in less game time.

Yeah there's a lot in the console on-screen menu, it's pretty cool, lets you use the action groups, sas and rcs.

Also you can push in the left stick for cursor mode and activate IVA from the Kerbal portraits, right stick in should cycle camera and exit IVA.

@TriggerAu Any chance you can get screenshots of the (?) icon button listing.  Its much easier to type that up than looking at the pictures of the controllers you just posted.  I want to make a document that has all of the controls and I can update my previous link when I do that.  Thanks!

I will ask about it and post it up if I can get a hold of it

The only control that bugs me is the map screen, it's a bit of a pain to keep flicking between the two with LB+RB, I wish it was a single button.......
