The Xbox Adaptive Controller has opened up a whole new world for peripherals aimed at making games more accessible for everyone. One such peripheral is the 3dRudder, which allows players to control thumb stick movements in Xbox One games with their feet when it's hooked up to the Xbox Adaptive Controller.
Now, 3dRudder has rolled out a new update for the foot controller, adding in additional ways to customize how games are controlled through what it's calling "Flex Mode." The new mode allows players to control thumb stick movements through one of two methods: pitch and roll, or pitch and yaw. 3dRudde explains:
Configuration 1: this option combines the pitch and the roll. If we take Forza horizon 4 as an example, you'll tilt the 3drudder forward to speed up and tilt it to the left or the right to steer the wheel. Configuration 2: this option combines the pitch and the yaw. Still in FH4, you'll speed up by tilting the 3drudder forward, and steer the wheel by spinning the 3drudder to the left or the right.
The goal, the company says, is to give player more refined controls over thumb stick movements, which can be difficult to get just right. The new settings work to counteract the "latency effect inherited from the thumb stick."
