ds4 controller touchpad and PS button


Badge

Hello everybody,

Maybe it’s a good deal to put to work ds4 touchpad, so, it will be possible to play PlayStation Now PS4 games and do more something on Shadow Windows Client! Observing that I’m on unsupported country, I can’t play PlayStation Now here on my native computer so I use Shadow to play it, I use to play Stadia too...

Hi @Ov3rCl0ck5 ,

I use PS Now & Stadia through Shadow iPad client using a PS4 or Xbox One controller via Bluetooth. 
 

I use a software called reWASD. (14day trial on their page or 6€ for a basic license). 
 

reWASD allows you to turn the controller into a virtual PS4 controller on shadow. 
 

Gyro & Touchpad won’t work, but you will be able to re-assign touchpad click & the Home button to any key combination. 
 

I have mapped the following using the virtual ps4 layout 

L1&R1&X to Home PS4 (make sure steam is not running or you have disabled steam’s use of the home button in desktop mode)

L1&R1&O to Touchpad Click PS4

L1&R1&Square to F12 Keyboard for stadia capture

L1&R1&Circle to F11  Keyboard for Fullscreen/Window toggle in PS Now & Stadia

 

Since you are using a PS4 controller make sure that Shadow’s new PS4 feature is disabled. 

In addition Xbox controller seems to have issues recognizing complex key combos. 
 

ps: it seems that rewasd added gyro emulation support with their 5.3 release recently. 
I haven’t tried that feature yet.
