jpanther too, although it is a lot less effective than on other tanks.

 

I've noticed the 13 F3 also pulling very sharp turns when tracked (which seems to be the same physics as handbraking), and indeed without activating the handbrake, by just turning very sharply.

 

It also seems to have much better turning speed when accelerating that stationary, for some reason.

Isn't there an option to remap your controller buttons with an app?

Is possible to move Cruise control from left stick to "UP D-pad" in "Handbrake" Controller configuration? It would solve all the problems. Btw nobody use backward cruise control

Haven't been on yet but, hiow does d-pad down work on default when you need your left thumb to steer?

 

This is what I was wondering. I guess right thumb over the top? Would be awkward

[edited]the handbrake! Introducing this [edited]controle without an option to shut it down is like inverting the Y or Z without the option to do the same. I run "D" pad configuration so when I try and reverse I'm stuck because: A) I have eggrolls for fingers, and B) my left thumb stick is sensitive so I stay in the same position thinking I'm tracked. I'm not changing controller config to accommodate some POS, 3YRS late in the game mod you guys finally put out to console. Fix it or lose PAYING customers like myself...

brilliant. I thought it had been missed on the drive control scheme.

Please, give us the option with no handbrake or cruise control on left thumb stick. I like the handbrake ok, but it keeps activating when In the heat of battle. Same if it's mapped as cruise control.Unplayable in this state for a lot of us I'm afraid. Can't get the app to remap either, so not a happy bunny. This is getting me killed in ridiculous situations and I can't see a way out apart from zero on left thumb stick, for me anyway. Or let us turn the damned thing off of course.

edit: got elite controller to remap left stick push to a rear paddle, so nothing on left stick push now, when on d-pad cruise control configuration.

Truly curious, but is there a reason why we can't custom make our own control scheme?

I know I'm a n00b potato.  Everything that I say, please know that it's coming from the bottom of the pecking order.

I believe the hand brake is best used in the default slot (down on the d pad) why? I'll tell ya, if you're using a tank fast enough to justify sliding in on someone's flank you should have autolocked your aim point on the approach, removing your thumb for a brief second to hit the d pad while controlling the slide with your left thumb is completely serviceable and won't mess with your head when clicking the left stick.
 
The best argument however is people getting excited and gripping the controller a little too hard when in a tense situation... if you click the stick by accident you will power slide yourself into a tail spin and get murdered... or equally as bad come to a complete stop.
 
whatever you do. don't use the driver scheme LOL

Please make an on/off option for the handbrake. I play with D cruise control and keep activating the hand brake by mistake and stopping my tank. This is very frustrating. I've tried the other configs and none work for me.  So frustrating!

 

  There really should be a way to disable the handbrake especially on the D-pad setting.  Damn thing keeps getting me killed!  I may have to go back to the 360 to "modify" a controller if we can't get this non-option turned off.

Nice move putting handbrake on the move stick in the dpad config.  How on earth can you rock back and forth without coming to a halt when handbrake activates.  Why do we need a handbrake anyway

Huh, that's funny. I use it frequently. 

 

But, in general, thanks for the mappings. I only played a few Tier 1 games this morning while downloading, couldn't figure out where the new handbrake was.

Still cant see how this makes a single track choosable. Also there seems to be no way use the brake in reg. setup while steering and aiming.

Until i realized the genuine way WGA wants me to utilize my controller and Thumbs:Bildergebnis für ramsey snow sausage gif :great:You guys are really creative, Sorry Ladies, You still can use Your toes. I can allready hear KinnectJoe "Cortana Handbrake!"

Was wondering why I kept getting killed when trying to back up.  Thought it was lag.  Can't stand the new control scheme (I use d-pad cruise).
 
WG - Thank you for moving the handbrake off the left stick in the D-pad cruise control setup!

Driver control scheme needs fixing. Handbrake engages not only when both triggers are pulled, but also when either trigger is released. Trying to inch forward to get a good shot now always rocks the darn tank and have to wait snother second before shooting. Please let the tanks decellerate normally when just letting off the gas. This drives like someone learning to drive with one foot on the gas and the other on the brske at the same time. Ugh.

Now i cannot drift either to take a corner fast. if i back off the throttle to slow down (say from 55 to 40 before), now i get full stop. Ugh. :(
