Hey! I’ve spent two days trying to get horizontal boost to work on my controller. For some reason I can only get it to boost to the sides and backwards.

I have the gamepass version of the game but was able to add it to steam via UWPHook and use steams controller settings to make a mode-shift so double pressing Y while holding the left joystick in a direction is WASD + Alternate boost key (alt in my case). I’ve also tried mapping just forwards horizontal boost (W+alt) to Y+B, Left stick click+Y and others. But forwards horizontal boost never works. It does work fine if I use the keyboard, but I can’t play with KB&M due to my bad spine, it hurts if I do, so a controller is the only option.

I’ve read about reWASD but I’m completely broke so can’t afford it, and haven’t been able to find a recent version on the high seas of the web.

Windows 11

Gamepass starfield

Latest steam

Controller is a Nacon Revolution X

I can post an image of the mapping if that might help solve the issue. Any ideas?

    I’m afraid this is something Bethesda has to fix with an update, because the way it works with a keyboard is freaky as well.

    If you are standing on the ground and use alternate jump, you jump. But if you press it again, you forward boost. They should’ve assigned forward boost to the running mapping or something. That would be more apparent

      Tbh this should have been fixed day one. Its one of the things they should have spotted right away.

      One month since launch, nothing
