    New to the forums, think I'm in the right place though... I have a simple question:

    Does anybody know how to get a PS4 controller's rotation to steer in Beam?

    Instead of using the joystick, I thought it'd be awesome to actually try and steer vehicles with the controller's motion technology.
    Thanks for any advice or help! :)

    Hmm, when you select the binding, try rotating the controller and see if it registers as an axis, if yes, then you can use it, if not, maybe it isn't exactly working properly or windows hasn't recognised that it can do that

    BeamNG doesn't seem to be able to detect the rotation of controllers by default, but what you can do (and what I did) is use the Steam Controller Configurator to map the gyro to the left joystick.

    If you prefer DS4Windows over the Steam Controller Configurator, you should be able to use that as well.
