Please, make an alternate D-Pad Cruise control scheme that includes the handbrake on the left thumbstick. Thank you.

"Handbrake" in a tank? Why?:amazed:

Max,

 

Could you please update the first post as things change and new options are added?  I completely missed the thread where the hand break D-Pad option was removed.  I spent about 20 minutes on it before giving up; thinking I was doing something wrong.

It's technically 'track locking' but for convenience is called handbrake as it is a widely recognised term and is used in the same way.

 

Real tanks can perform 'handbrake turns'

Hello all, due to the large amount of questions about where the handbrake is for the different control schemes, we are creating this thread! Here you will find all the Control Schemes and the Handbrake locations. :honoring:

 

Default: Handbrake is on D-Pad Down button.

Spoiler

D-Pad Cruise Control: Handbrake is on the Left Stick click

Spoiler

Driver: Handbrake is activated by pulling both the Forward and Reverse Triggers.

Spoiler

Shoulder Button Swap: Handbrake is on the D-Pad Up button.

Spoiler

Southpaw: Handbrake is on the D-pad Up button.

Spoiler

Handbrake: Handbrake is on the Left Bumper

Spoiler

Handbrake Alternate: Handbrake is on the Right Bumper

Spoiler

 

May I suggest a new layout option?  I think the default layout but swapping change ammo and Handbrake would be much more intuitive as both reloading autoloader clips and changing shell types will be on the D-Pad.

Im currently using my right thumb to hit down on the D-Pad as you need your left thumb to steer at the same time. 

 

In summary

A = Handbrake 

D-Pad Down = Change shell type 

D-Pad Right = reload magazine 

 

Hopefully many others agree with me that this would be the most natural way to play especially in fast tanks, also meaning you can aim steer and pull a Handbrake turn simultaneously

It's funny to me that WG's solution to the handbrake-leftstick for the people who can't pull the left thumbstick downwards without having an epileptic seizure, was to completely remove that feature for that control scheme. Why not just add another control scheme that is identical to that scheme before the handbrake was added. Or tell those people to figure it the f*ck out.

WG, give the whiners the option to use the default setups, without handbrake, but FFS, don't change the current setups, I already got used to the "Handbrake" setup.

 

 

Oh, flipping and rubber tanks bouncing....not cool. Self righting, NOT COOL!!!!!

Tiger II and E75 accuracy/dispersion buffs....Why?

Everything else in the new update is F*CKING AWESOME!!!

 

Complains about whiners then goes and whines. Hey, it's only whining if you don't agree, right?

I want to use the D-pad control but no handbrake. Everyone says to just remap. but all of the other control maps use the cruise control on the left button (except Southpaw). I absolutely don't want cruise on the stick. I don't want to start to cruise unexpectedly. There is no handbrake function available to me. At least give the option to choose the handbrake or not!!!!

 

What I've done is use the "Handbrake" controller configuration, then go into Xbox Accessories Settings and swap LS Click with D-Pad Up.  Handbrake is on LB, radial message menu is on A, change ammo type is on D-pad Down, cruise control is on D-Pad Up, and LS Click is undefined.

 

I find this is an acceptable workaround that can be easily reset and recreated since it is just one swap.  I pinned the Xbox Accessories applet to my home screen so I can get to it easily.


​My answer to any question about Wargaming and their products?  Everything's great!

some suggestions Raibot

 

Bring Back the L3 handbrake as

D-Pad Cruise Control (Alternate)

(note: for those of us that liked it on the left stick)

Spoiler

 

A-Button Handbrake

(note:a fun new take on the handbrake setups Ammo change is moved to D-pad Left, Hull lock is moved to L3 as its not always needed and is cancelled if you move anyways)

Spoiler

 

and

 

X-Button Handbrake "Passive"

(note: This Setup Recommends people to use a Passive Consumable on the L3 Button to avoid issues)

Spoiler

i use the d-pad cruise control configuration and it was quick and easy to use on the left analog stick why was it removed this is nonsense because a few ppl couldn't get use to it and cried about it it gets removed so now that configuration doesn't have a handbrake how about wargaming grow a pair and tell ppl to make it work or switch controls such nonsense just put it back and leave it on the left analog stick it was so easy to use smh it was in the best possible spot you didn't have to move anywhere on the controller to use it alls you had to do was push in so quick and easy i really can't believe it was removed such trash

Not letting me use the handbrake really pissed me off too.
You got three choices here, number one simple and easy, keep the dpad cc layout and Add a dpad cc w/ HB layout. Then people can choose, the cry babies are happy if they don't want it, and everyone else isn't punished.
Two, allow users to custom program their profiles.
Three, on the dpad cc layout put the HB on the LB and move radial to left stick press.

​how about you do your job and fix the d-pad controls and give us a handbrake for the controls we like to use wargaming surely had no problem taking our money to pay for your super bowl ads but now your paying customers are asks for a handbrake on the controls they like to use and nothing all bc a few people cried like a bunch of babies. this is bullsh*t put the handbrake back on the left analog L. and tell the people who had a problem with it to use the default controls this is f**king nonsense
