About me



  1. This appears to be a bug, but as an ESDF gamer, I am unable to remap my WASD keys to ESDF as the "E" key exits the prompt to remap the key. Obligatory DirectX information:
  2. Something keeps on happening while Im using my modded space shuttle in ksp, for some reason a and d become the pitch controls for some reason mid-flight, its the same for w and s, q and e is unaffected.
  3. So, what I mean by this? For me the most crucial thing is that I cant change the camera span from middle mouse button to another button. It is a preference thing, but I only use the middle mouse for scrolling, I don't like using it for clicking, because of life span reasons. So for me in games the first thing is to change whatever is on the middle mouse button to the side buttons on the mouse or usually LeftAlt. So if anybody has any other thing related to this topic feel free to comment and I hope this will reach the development team someday and gets added to the game.
  4. I personally prefer the control configuration of w s a d on pitch and roll with e and q on yaw. However, when I try to assign the e key to right yaw, the input is ignored.
  5. Hi! This is my first post so forgive me if I'm uploading wrong. I just recently got the game and am doing great figuring everything out, except for what the title states. I am on a laptop so I cannot activate the mousewheel the way the manual suggests, and I can't find any recent discussions, guides, or key bindings that help- I'm on v1.12.5.3190(OSX). It's been fine for a while but I'm building a satellite for Mun and it's impossible to perfect the small details as well as getting a cohesive view of the vessel without being able to adjust my camera zoom. Please let me know up-to-date control schemes for this or possible solutions. I'll try to answer any questions needed. (Also is there an all-encompassing document of helpful equations, rates, constants, etc? I'm exhausted of just eyeballing half of my steps) Thanks! <<<3
  6. Hi all! I've recently came back to the console version of KSP and started a fresh career. Everything was going great until I tried to timewrap once in orbit around Kerbin. After finishing the timewrap, my controls are locked (unable to pitch, yaw, roll, activate SAS with O button, etc.). The only controls that I can use are; trottle controls, L1/R1+ triangle (to open flight options), options button to open up the menu, and camera controls. FYI; EC is Full, I'm able to EVA but unable to go back inside the ship (using the O button) even though there's no other kerbal in the ship and there's place. I've also make trim (if any) is reset. The only "fix" I've found is to go back to the tracking station and going back inside the ship, which is not great when you're about the do a maneuver and/or are about to crash into something. So my question is; Is this a known bug and is there a fix to this? Thanks !
  7. Hello, im running 1.11 & when i pitch up/down with w/s the game banks left/right a/d. What to do?
  8. I found a link for the 1.2.2 pdf by EdJaws that was like an off-line list of all the vanilla key bindings, but the link to the pdf was a google drive. So that doesn't exist anymore... I'm wondering of anyone has an auxiliary copy of the pdf they can post in the thread or something. If there's a newer one that's been spread around, even better. I'll take links to threads that do have an active link to a keybinds pdf as well.
  9. so, where can i set minimum and maximum for an axis, even wiggling the axis did not set the min-max, resulting in max-min-step-max behaviour. you cant test the controls in the settings, and you have to go all the way in to flight to test them, then just to find they were not working right. edit: why does alt-tabbing out of the program in win 10 64-bit make it white-hangup, crash?
  10. Greetings! I can't speak for everyone else but personally I find the VAB controls excruciatingly painful to use, especially in comparison to those in the SPH. Being able to move my camera to any space on screen rather than being pinned down to the center far more versatile and lets me place parts with far more precision. I would love a mod that simply gives the VAB the same control scheme as the SPH. Is this doable? I am aware that WASDcam also changes camera controls, but what I am wanting is a bit different, just unified controls so that I don't find myself building both planes and rockets in the SPH.
  11. I saw the KSP 2 announcement and I thought, "Colonies? That's so cool!" Then I read into it a bit more and discovered, you need to launch components to actually construct these habitats. Now, my interplanetary skills are a bit rusty, so I thought it might be a good idea to practice with the original KSP. Then it occurred to me that the developers might alter the mechanics and control schemes, to make the original techniques much more difficult. Can anybody tell me if these changes might occur, and that I might need to re-learn the controls and methods? It would be much appreciated.
  12. I’m not sure how this is handled on PC, but on PS4 (and presumably Xbox), trying to control slider values is difficult, at best. The most obvious concern is precisely adding/removing fuel from tanks. Not only matching liquid fuel and oxidizer, but precisely controlling them as needed. I’ve got in the habit of just fiddling until it “close enough”, but that isn’t really ideal. Today it’s an issue of fairing sides. I don’t want “5.15” sides (why is this not whole values anyway?). But in all of these sliders, you can’t even reliably force a max or min value. Clicking at the very ends don’t necessarily push the slider there, and dragging doesn’t guarantee it either (maybe positional polling on sliders is really, really slow?). You can hold L1 to gain finer control, but it really just slows down movement. I’ve cranked my cursor speed down to 20, and while the cursor itself moves more slowly, the accuracy of the value is no different. It would be nice if L1/R1 and maybe even L2/R2 were modifiers for values. While holding X on the slider, holding L1 and moving slows it down like it does today. Holding R1 and moving changes the value in whole number steps. L2 and move changes in 0.1 steps. R2 and move changes in 0.01 steps. Or something along those lines anyway. Lastly, tracking across the screen would be nice. Once you leave the confines of the slide area, even while holding X, control tracking ceases. For consoles, or controllers in general, this is poor UX. Once X is being held on the slider itself, horizontal tracking should continue across the screen.
  13. My controls for delete, rotate lt/rt, time advance shortcuts and others are just not working. I have deleted reinstalled new gamed tried to go to sandbox science mode settings. Nothing works the controls just do not work. Outside of Vab/sph lt/rt work for zooming in and out so I know it's not the controller. Launching just a command pod I can yaw pitch rotate zoom etc no problems there but for shortcuts and construction the controls don't seem to work I am on Xbox one KSP enhanced edition.
  14. The offset tools in the VAB are... lets say, unintuitive. I cannot get any sort of fine control. Is there an updated PS4 console controls list somewhere???
  15. We know the Ps4 does have the ability to connect a keyboard and mouse so what's stopping Squad from implementing those controls? I get the argument that at that point you might as well buy a PC but i would like to enjoy KSP with easier controls. I understand if implementing is harder in practice than in concept. I would just like to hear an official response on it.
  16. This is another reason the controls for console need to be given further consideration. This just happened to be posted exactly 3 years ago yesterday. I spent an entire afternoon and evening designing a rover to gather the remaining surface science on Mun. Over 6 hours later (real life time) MunRover and the ship that transported her there are finally on the South Pole and ready to get down to business. I push forward on the left joystick to accelerate aaand BANG!! she takes a nosedive and destroys a part on the front of the rover. I load the quicksave I had just done and try again, going slower this time. Same result, but in slow motion. After reading the thread above and a few others about motorized wheel settings and rover design, I switch the reaction wheels to SAS only and try again. This time it nearly does a backflip. The body is above the CoM and the fastest wheels in the game are below it in low gravity, you do the math. The bigger issue, however, is something another player said in that thread. PC players are presumably able to set separate controls for their wheels (translational motion) and flight controls (rotational motion). The only thing we get close to that on console is setting all of the Reaction Wheels on the ship to SAS only but then you run the risk of not being about to correct your orientation midair if you take even a small jump too fast. KSP isn't a car racing game, but seriously, why doesn't the game know when you're using tires and switch to some kind of ground vehicle mode? The effort it takes just to get my rover to stop trying to pitch and roll is a little ridiculous. Something as simple as gas, brakes, and steering isn't a lot to ask for.
  17. What are the more advanced controls for the new KSP console port, specifically for the VAB and SPH? On the PC and old console port there were buttons to disable surface attachment so your structures only stuck to the green snap points and also when using the "Move" tool you could choose whether the object moved on the worlds xyz axis or the objects itself. Were these functions completely removed from the game, they've never appeared in any of the in game tutorials.
  18. I'm having trouble with the IVA view. I can't cycle through different kerbals in IVA. I've seen others do it and i've looked through the control lists, but I can't find anything. Please help!
  19. Couple of problems found with the control schemes (Edit: just noticed #1 has been added and confirmed on the BugTracker). Can't buy researched parts in R&D building. For harder difficulties, you must pay an entry cost for each part after researching them so they become available. Now for a reason I'm yet to understand, the cursor is available everywhere but on H&D... Since the cursor is not available, after switching to the parts specific window - as in, after you first select a part through the part list window, a new window will pop-up with this part description - you simply can't switch the point of interest to this very window, therefore not being allowed to purchase the part. This would be quickly fixed if you could click on the purchase button, but no cursor available in R&D for no reason at all. Another problem one could quickly notice here is that on the bottom of that same window is the text "Hold <B>: More Info". If you do hold B (circle on PS4), instead of getting more info, you'll go back to the previous screen, since B (circle) is the same button to return in a window, lovely. (Minor, problem but a problem nonetheless, and may show that this happens on different windows as well): in the Tracking Station you can press LB/RB (L1/R1) to scroll between different celestial bodies, but in the controls App it tells you that when you have the cursor active, you can hold LB (L1) for precision mode. The problem is that even in cursor mode, holding LB will scroll to the previous celestial body. There seems to be an unnoticed problem going on with keys being used for multiple functions at the same time. With the Radial preset, for controlling your throttle you must hold LB (L1) and move the D-Pad Up/Down (instead of simply moving the D-Pad Up/Down and leaving LB + D-Pad for Maximum/Minimum instant throttle like it is with cursor settings). Not only the controls scheme is so limited to the point that for you to simply change this you must switch to another preset, which will change a lot more things than only this, you also have the LB (L1) conflicting between two functions again: LB (L1) + Axis movement is used to trim your craft, therefore you just cannot control your throttle and changing you craft attitude without trimming it and making it go all over the place. Like with problem #2, controls conflicting once again: at the VAB or SPH you can click X (Square) on a part to change some of it settings (like on a parachute to change it's deployment altitude). So, although you can use the cursor to change it's settings, you can also change to that window and use the Axis to scroll through the settings. For that, you switch back to non-cursor mode and press LB (L1) + Y (Triangle) (the same way you switch back and forth to the dialogue window during the tutorial). But with cursor mode on, if you press LB + Y you will also toggle between Snap Mode on/off. This is another minor bug, but can get a bit annoying when you have a window open but want to toggle between Snap Modes and it keeps switching windows. Ps.: Using this LB + Y combination in the R&D does not change the focus to the desired window, since by pressing LB (or RB) you will change tabs, scrolling between Technology and Science Archives.
  20. Anyone experience loss of craft control in the Xbox One Enhanced Edition? I have launched a pretty simple rocket (Twin-Boar engine, fuel tank, decoupler, Skipper engine, fuel tank, decoupler, MK1 control pod, heat shield, parachutes) into orbit around Kerbin. While checking out the Kerbal cockpit view, reviewing controls via the Manual app, and browsing through Kerbin planet info, contract info, etc, I have now lost control of my rocket orbiting Kerbin. Some things I have tried: I am not time warped. I am currently in 1x time mode, and have warped forward and put back to 1x mode.....no change in control ability. I have not run out of electric power. More than 40 of the default 50 electric charge remains. I have fuel remaining for my engines. Checked engines to ensure somehow engine was not shutdown. I have tried clicking on the MK1 Command module, and choosing Control From Here to make sure I didn't accidentally select a part or set control somewhere else.....no change in control ability. I have gone into the Settings menu and switched from Cursor to Radial, saved.....no change. Set back to Cursor.....no change. I have ensured I have pushed in Left Stick to make the cursor go away while attempting to control the craft. My vessel has Jebediah at the helm, so it is not a probe. The vessel is also close enough to Kerbin that it would not be out of range of communications. I cannot press B to turn SAS on/off, however, if I go to the NavBall, I can manually click SAS on/off with the cursor. The D-pad does not respond to any controls to either throttle up or down individually, or go to 100% using LB plus d-pad up. The needle for the throttle control never moves. If I press A to attempt to invoke the next stage, a decoupler, nothing happens. As a user of the previous Xbox One version of the game, as well as a user of the PC version of the game for the last several months, I've never run into a situation like this before and tried everything I could think of that would possibly prevent control of the craft. I'm stumped. I didn't want to revert my game. A few minutes after posting, I decided to take a chance going back to Space Center, then go to Tracking Station to get back to my vessel. I now have control of the vessel. Still very odd, that some sequence of menus caused a lockup of controlling the rocket.
  21. Somehow my steam recognizes my joystick (Logitech extreme 3d pro) as a generic gamepad, and is stuck in some weird control profile. I can't seem to delete the profile or reset anything regarding to the joystick. When I open the joystick in the device manager I can see that it's working by testing everything in the properties. I've spent hours trying to figure this out, and haven't found anything pertinent to my situation. Please help me out!
  22. This is just a funny idea I had, but what if you had a mod that you could toggle on and off while on a mission. When toggled on, it would purposely add a user-defined number of seconds of input lag. It does take time for signals to move the sorts of distances involved in space after all (from Earth to the Moon is what, about a second?) If you wanted to make it a more automated "challenge" mod, rather than a just-for-fun thing you toggle, you could have it add some amount of time for any vessel in a sphere of influence without a manned vessel it can connect to. Naturally, to avoid the problems that would occur with signals taking multiple hours to get around the Kerbol system, you could act like the signals still do travel much faster than the speed of light in our universe, or just do something like add one second each time the signal has to change sphere-of-influence on its way from a manned ship to the unmanned vessel you are controlling. Or, you could input some controls, then hit a button to carry out what you input to simulate having to wait a while for the signals to reach the target. I mean, yeah, the assumption is that most unmanned KSP vessels have an onboard AI that operates them to a partial extent, but sending of actual commands should realistically take time and add to the challenge, right? Speaking of challenges, I could totally see there being challenges to launch a rocket to the mun and back with something like 2-3 seconds of input lag or something the whole way. Much crashing I imagine.
  23. I need some help regarding setting up a joystick. I've set up all the inputs and everything, but I've noticed that when pitching up and down, my planes will pitch up/down for a bit, then stop, even if I'm still pulling the stick back. I've never used a joystick before, so I don't know if this is supposed to happen or not.
  24. Okay, I know people may say this is because of power or antenna on 1.2, but for some reason, every time I get close to another one of my ships (i.e. attempt docking) with it. I can get about 20km away, and all of a sudden everything on the ship stops working.... permanently. These are not large ships, and even the in game tutorial is doing this. When I was in career mode, I put everything in, made sure I had the antennas up, had several battery packs for my probe core and/or command module and the reaction wheels, as well as RCS. Even the RCS didn't work when I asked it to. The whole ship just went dead. It's become very problematic for me to build stuff in space because of this. I've tried three types of control systems (mk1 pod, probodyne, and the mk1 lander pods). I tried looking it up and seeing if I was doing something wrong. I don't know because I'm a new player and got the game just a few days ago on steam.
  25. I played KSP during 1.1 for several days and i do understand how the game controls work. When 1.2 released i decided to begin a new game in career mode. For some reason now in the new game the games default controls for flight in a completely unmodded game version 1.2 DO NOT WORK. To be more exact, I'm just starting again so of course the first few steps are building small rockets etc etc (you know the drill) as i launch the first rocket to get into space the games DEFAULT keyboard controls do absolutely nothing at all to the rocket, i mean absolutely freaking nothing the gauge that shows you your pitch yaw roll inputs are all sitting there perfectly still as if receiving no input form me what so ever as i hit the WASDQE buttons. However the camera is receiving those keyboard inputs and the keyboard that (at least in the past game) should be giving control input to the rocket are instead moving the camera all over the place as the rocket goes straight up and only straight up. What am i missing here????? As far as i know i changed no settings at all from my last game to this one. Did i hit some stupid little toggle somewhere or something?
