I gave NMS with the Beyond update a try, I really liked it, sure it wasn't as clear as I would have liked, there's some pop in and a hand flew away sometimes, but to me these were minor annoyances and quickly forgotten.
I played NMS on release and couldn't quite get into the grind, with all the free updates in the last 3 years this game has greatly improved, now with the Beyond update bringing VR support its the perfect time to jump back in.
\nNMS supports both DS4 and move controllers for PSVR but sadly no HOTAS support, the Move controllers are good for the on foot controls but didn't feel right for flying, I'm sure I would get used to it.
\nA reddit user mentioned that they have both Moves and a DS4 powered on, Moves for on foot and DS4 for flying, this gave me an idea on how to get my joystick working.
\nMy joystick is a Thrustmaster T.16000M for PC which is not compatible with PS4, I've built a GIMX adapter following the instructions from
So my joystick talks to my PC, my PC gets a DS4 security token from my DS4, my PC then sends my joystick commands to the PS4 pretending to be a DS4.
It took a bit of configuring to map the DS4 controls to my joystick but the results are impressive, it feels so much more natural in game using a joystick to fly.
So I use the Moves for walking round and when I get in my ship I put them down, I then use my joystick, when the PS4 detects input from my joystick my hands disappear, when I get out of my ship I press a button on my Moves and my hands reapear.
I highly recommend getting a GIMX adapter, even if your HOTAS or wheel is compatible with PS4 as not all games support these peripherals, with an adapter these can show up as a regular DS4 to the PS4.
