The release of Titanfall is just around the corner, and like most people Ill be buying the PC version because its not going to be released on the PS4, but I want to play with my PS4 game-pad, here is how to get around the driver issues on the PC..
Closest thing to playing the PS4 version hehe
This is cool, though. I love the DS4 and will be playing Titanfall on my mate's PC (it's better than mine), so at least now I'll be able to pick up and play without worrying about the controls. Signed: PC noob that's rubbish with KB/M! :)
Why would you play with a DS4 when you can play with an Xbox 360 controller thats better. Or an Xbox One controller thats still better than a DS
^Because I like the DS4 more, of course - what an odd question! lol
After a DS4 you just need a good web camera, 40$, then a game capture card 150$~ and your set to stream on twitch!
Actually, thanks to nvidia shadowplay you dont need a capture card. Your graphics card will record, compress and stream to twitch on the fly with next to no performance impact, free of charge!
@ninjahunter oh great, i'll just buy a new video card for 150 then! thanks! (or does it work on a gtx 660?)
Officially is supported by the 650 and up, although I believe it can be forced on on any 6xx series card and up.
i got it to work, but only 2 of my games actually work with it :( I did find this thing called open broadcaster that seems to work although requires a decent amount of fiddling and setup after an hour i had it working, it works with any game.
LOL! For a PS4 gamer who wants to play this overhyped game then this is clutching at straws! -But at least the Dualshock 4 is really comfortable controller and it came out the gate with optimised non-broken controls! ;)
Can't wait for future articles from this author: "How to play ET on your 2600 with your Xbox One controller" "How to play Duke Nukem Forever with your feet" "How to play Daikatana with mind control" ...
"how to play with yourself while playing with yourself"
If you took the time to look at the article for even 5 seconds you would notice that it isn't simply 'plug in and play' he uses software to emulate a 360 controller, which isn't common knowledge to everyone who wishes to try it.
That's probably why he made the article to let people know how to.
i plan on doing this with my boot camped macbook pro. Didn't have the time to try it when the beta was out so hopefully it works well
should work fine, much better than the Xbox one, not saying much mind you
"How to play TItanfall with your PS4 controller on your PC" Who the hell would prefer playing Titanfall on the PC with a controller instead of a KB/Mouse? ... unless you have your PC rigged to a TV, then it probably makes more sense ;)
You say that but i played the beta on PC with a DS4 and was on top of the leader boards nearly every single time.
You should get titanfall for the ps4 broo
because you had auto-aim? Who the fuck would play PC version of multiplayer with controller instead mouse.
Me. I spent a lot of time and money on my gaming rig (close to $2000) but I'm not a big fan of keyboard/mouse. I'll use it if I have to, but if there's a controller option, I take advantage of it. I love PC gaming, but I've spent most of my gaming life with a controller so it's my comfort zone. I do better with it and can play just fine against people using M/K. I played the beta with my PS4 controller. Plus, I do have my PC connected to my TV :)
Completely agree, I have just made the transition from Console to PC and i am finding it difficult to 100% adjust to K/M, if theres a controller option then i will use a controller.
Why don't you just call it "Dualshock 4" instead of "Playstation 4 game-pad"? Faster to write.
I'd rather use the 360 controller
Mouse is much better, watching someone on YouTube trying to play an FPS on console is painful.. extremely slow turning around. One of the first FPS's i played on PC was like, unreal, then Delta Force land warrior and then Half life, return to castle wolfenstein etc, took a little while to get used to kb & mouse but they are much better.
That's the only case(in FPS games at least) where I see the advantage of the mouse is when you turn since it's much much much more fluid and fast. That being said,I prefer a gamepad over Mouse/Keyboard but would use the latter if the game won't allow me or if the experience with the Mouse/Keyboard makes the game much more enjoyable(which isn't the case most of the time). I can make the turning on the gamepad faster,though it will never touch the sensation of the Mouse.
I use m&k when playing multiplayer, but I use controller when playing single player. I simply prefer analogue movement over using the keys. But obviously when playing multi you need the faster movement of the mouse aiming to be competitive,
There are just people who like gaming with a controller over a keyboard and mouse. Sure, many people may be better using them but I grew up playing with consoles, adapting to all their controller types and I wouldn't want to change that.
Does the PS4 controller use bluetooth?
Yes, but you have to get a separate adapter to use it on PC.
Ok thanks, my motherboard has bluetooth built in so it should work. I will have to try it today =).
I might use a pad when friends are over but I'll stick with k/b and mouse when I want to be competitive.
Always using my DS4 on the PC whenever possible, I knew about this anyway :P
Does the xbox one controller have support yet. I thought it was weird ds4 had support when xbox not.
Xbox controller absolutely has great support
