    Personally, I like to play some games controller and some keyboard however I don't have a Windows computer to play TSW on so I play it on the PS4. TSW is one of those games I would love to play with a keyboard so I plugged my keyboard and mouse into my PS4 however I noticed that you can use some elements to drive the train with the keyboard but no controls for the keyboard appear on the game. Also I would like to note that the mouse doesn't work meaning I have to go back to playing with a controller which I don't mind but it would be nice to see keyboard support there. Is this something you would like to see and will this be added in a future update?

    I also have TSW but refuse to play it until it's compatible with the RailDriver controller which would probably require another version of MacroWorks. I know, I'll most likely be waiting until hell freezes over.

    A keyboard does indeed work with the PS4. As far as I can tell all the pc keyboard controls work the same. There are various pc manuals online showing the keys.

    Mouse support isn't included for me though which is the main thing I would like to see included within the PS4 version of the game

    that's the only button that does not work. Without proper support for the keyboard, nothing can be done for that.

    Full keyboard and mouse support is a must! I just bout train sim world on the ps4 and the controls are so foreign to me because I'm used to playing simulators on the PC.

    I feel the same I would rather use a keyboard and mouse for this game as the controller feels wrong and if your not careful you can move the reverser by mistake which in some cases shuts the engine down so please Dovetail sort this out for us.

    Is it possible to use any Bluetooth keyboard on PS4 and a controller at the same time?

    Hi, I currently use my Keyboard (Spainish) where all the keys except the train brake application which does not work, however the ñ release works fine. I submitted a ticket to DTG on this matter and they promptly responded with the following :

    Hi Douglas,

    The PS4 version does not officially support the use of a keyboard.

    Whilst some controls may work this is not intentional.

    Kind Regards,

    Daniel

    I will try an English keyboard as I've heard that the train brake application works? It would be good if the mouse worked and you could zoom in and out, could operate buttons and the map points switch, as at present the dual shock is a little clunky. However the dual shock enables the 101 gear to be very smooth from personal experience. I use the HUD at present which I feel should be lockable on the screen as it does obscure view and buttons.

    It would good to have DTG rectify this at their earliest opportunity, as it's seems across all keyboards not just a Spanish version.
