Xbox Controller

Recommended Posts

I really liked how the current PC version of BDO controls where completely open to customize how ever you wanted it, especially when using a Xbox controller. I spent hours creating and mapping the controls too tailor each character and how i used them.

I would love to hear other players who currently play with an xbox controller and their opinions on the talked about new control layout.

The current PC controller support is something i would love to see more in games, and i hope they do not remove or change our ability to do so on the Xbox release. After reading the most recent Dev notes, im a little worried how much they may change to make it more 'user friendly controls'. If the game is good (and i know it is), then players should be open to a learning curve with the more in depth controls. However i fully support and understand how the current PC version of BDO controlls are vary different from what an xbox likes too process.

All in all i really want to see BDO succeed and blow away Consol players, but plz dont change it too much simply because its current pc controls (on a controller) are considered confusing or difficult. PA did it right the first time, i hope they can do it again. 😃

They said we'll be able change our controls and they said they are still working on it hard. Is the control scheme for BDO PC the same for the controller? Never played BDO on the PC with a controller.

From what has been revealed, the controlls are vary different from the current controller support.

On PC as it is, you use the LB and/or RB to create sub menus of controls. I use the main commands, For example; RT is basic attack, LT is secondary. Normally X is primary attack and RT is evade but i changed it. When i press LB+RT i use one of the various hotkeys i assigned. You can assighn anything you want, even LB/RB+any direction on either stick can be assigned to hot keys. Creating more then enoph space for any input using these submenus via LB/RB was perfect.

On Xbox currently, LB/RB has been shown as one of the bassic commands. The Dpad is used to creat a visual wheel of commands/hotkeys that appears and is selected via the joystick. Like selecting weapons in GTA V, instead you input selected various commands/hotkeys in these visual wheels for easy visual access.

This is why i worry, From what we know they are changing the controls from how it is currently on PC to this new visual system. This is an attempt to make usability of the controller easier for all audiences. While this is true, it takes away from the current fluidity of combat. Being able to press LB+Left Stick Forward for a rush/charge attack at anymoment is one of many smooth combinations of controls that i love so much! Seeing that i will have to re-learn a new system that is not as intuitive is a let down. Im open to anything and im not saying they shouldn't implement a new control layout. Im just a huge fan of its current configuration. As i said befor, PA did it right the first time, lets hope they do it again!

Well to be fair it's not designed to fit a PC players quota. It's the Xbox version after all. 

It has to be easy enough for casual and new players to understand, and if needed, later on, you will be able to edit it if you like.

Like I said, they said they are really working hard to try and let us customize as much as possible. I know I plan on customizing mine.

It goes to show you how they can easily edit the games differently across the platforms. Which I think is very cool in a lot of ways.

Also, the combat will still be fluid, but the post you read did confirm it won't be PC. But I never came in here thinking it was PC. I knew it had to be very different from PC in a lot of ways. PA has full control of the game and not Kakao so thats a plus. BlackSpiritGrin.png.27feae9190ca8ed486d65c6e8cd31be7.png 

I know recently PA has been receiving a sh** storm for there recent actions, and I agree not all of it was panned out enough correctly, but they still edit the game EVERY week on PC. Are they always doing the right things? No. But they edit the game based on there vision it least and so far the CM on here and the dedication to the community has been amazing for a game thats not even come out yet. I am pretty sure it is under development by a separate team then PC. I am not saying it will be completely different than PC, but it will be different in a lot of ways. 

My only prayer is that player feedback is listend to seriously on here. As I know many members of the community on PC have stated they are not heard. Look at the Renown update lol.

All in all though, they are trying. Most games now a days don't do that. They give up. For me, they seem to be a lot more promising than most companies regarding games.

You are so correct on every level and i hope i dont sound negative towards this change in controls. Im simply putting out my opinion on how it was, is, and going to be for me.

I would love to hear other players who currently play with an xbox controller and their opinions on the talked about new control layout.

I love BDO and what PA has done with it. Iv been a player for over a year now and as you said, no game (iv ever played) has ever changed so much over time. Again, As you said, mayby not every update worked out for everyone but at least they are listening and actually doing something. I personally like what iv seen change on the surface. Im not as dedicated as others so i dont pay attention to every update, but i have seen the game come a long way sens i started playing and its great!

Just wanted to clear that up, I fully support any and all changes and decisions PA makes to there game and I never assumed it would be identical to PC.

Just wanted to talk with other players and there opinions on the current controller support and the upcoming changes related to how we already currently play on a xbox controller.

gota admit the way you interact with LB, RB and the XYBA button is very good

works actual better than keyboard

I love it! Hard to say its better then a keyboard but its my main choice for combat in BDO for sure.

The LB/RB+XYBA system can be so fluid, I will miss it on the xbox version. 

This new visual system actually is a great idea, and cannot wait to see how its implemented and used/customized by the players.

This is an exciting time where the controller is actually trying to compete with mouse and keykeyboard.

what is this visual system you refering to?

i dont think they get rid of the LB/RB buttons with XYBA tho
the dev diary 1 said they test 2 input variants at the moment with some super secret codenames fbi dosnt want you to know about
think was codename 4-5 and codename 1-8

for me sound like they refer somewhat to the hotbar with that codenames

oh nvm just seen your postings my bad
oh i see  i rly hope they dont get rid of LB/RB and change it complete with the visual wheel..
i mean it is a nice idea but i sure wont like to have chucking pots or using skills on it
just imagine the pain having to choose 600 times in an hour via that visual wheel the correct pot to restore mana/health
you gona chuck  every potions by accident this way

I think whats awesome to is that they are working with Microsoft which i'm sure they are also working with them with the whole control scheme, and PA is making sure it is making the best UI possible. I think they are going to do it right.
