On second thought targeting can be triangle button, and guns would be square button.

or targeting is X button (NICE) and guns are square button.

Also I realized a problem, yawing is still needed for Falken lasering.
But maybe that's not important, because Falken laser is cheating, and thus by extension anything that makes it easier to use is cheating.
Yawing is needed for refeuling and landing however, but for that, mapping it to the nub/dpad might be enough.

If only there was a way to toggle yaw/trim or have a walk button of sorts where while holding L (for example) any movement you do is yaw/trim.
Or press L to switch to yaw/trim mode then press L to regain full maneuvering capability.

Also, is there a way, to have a button do two things at once?
for instance, if I have radar mapped to nub-right, and yaw right mapped to nub-right, well that's just perfect.

Sorry if this is the wrong thread for this, but it's just that I suddenly got these ideas.



i still need to unlock stuff :/

Well, you have to auto pilot, then press the select button, that will switch your views but you will not be able to move your aircraft due to your being in autopilot mode.

correct
In other words press select while holding L + R

I like that this works regardless of how you mapped your controls. (i.e. holding L + R is autopilot no matter what)
Also if you use the nub, this moves the camera around.

You can try pressing other buttons while holding L + R, they do different things, such as camera locking on to other players (in co-op) or allied AI units.

I was thinking how elegant my new control scheme idea is, when I realized it's basically just the default control scheme with one change. -___-

One thing I considered though, is what if X button camera makes it harder to use missiles and camera? I mean on PS2 controller I press O while holding triangle, and this works well.. who knows maybe pressing O while holding down X is actually harder. Probably not an issue, but it's possible.

Though I realized a real problem. Although I can camera and bullets at the same time, or camera and missiles at the same time... I can't missiles and bullets at the same time! (but is this bad? .. actually wait yes it is bad. for Sulejmani, not to mention, obviously, any heavy ground target such as Balaur)

One solution is, what if I mapped bullets to two buttons. That way I can press either button depending on whether I'm using camera or missiles.
This may need testing though, because the initial concept (Wipeout logic - pressing either square or O while holding X) is something I remember being more cumbersome than it sounds. 2 buttons are great (e.g. shooting missiles while holding down camera) but 3's a crowd. Maybe not a problem though because nobody's forcing me to hold down the camera button, I can just let go and then hold it down again to switch from missiles to guns (and vice versa) or from missiles to both missiles and guns. But not so elegant anymore.

edit: oh it just occurred to me I can support both default controls and my crazy experiments.

Triangle - camera
O - missiles
X - guns
square - guns

nobody says I have to use square button for guns, it's just there as an option. Posted Image

no idea what he means by messing up your TAC name

Anyway I wish AC games let you start over but still earn money for your main save.
AC4, AC Zero, ACX, ACJA... these are all the games I've wanted to this with.
Thing is with ACJA is that you've never earned enough money, so starting over is shooting yourself in the foot.
On the other hand, it has so many planes, so you can just sell the ones you don't plan to use anymore.
Same with weapons, you can just ignore many of the missile types. (except maybe 1200m HACMs for Ace of Aces)

He has hacks that unlock stuff automatically for him. Using them runs the risk of corrupting his TAC name and causing problems for online players.

That's probably because of your CFW version (if your PSP is CFW'ed). You'll need to update to version 5.00 or better.

That happened to me too, I had version 4.00 and I could play fine, except for the BGM and speeches, which I couldn't hear until I upgraded my CFW.
