  1. Thank you so much for this! Now the PS4 control buttons are showing up in the game.
    Also, I figured out how to enable the touchpad to use in the game. In DS4Windows, open your profile and then go to the Touchpad tab on the left side. There, change ‘Output Mode’ to ‘Controls’, and also tick the ‘Passthru Click Action’ option. That will allow the game to detect the touchpad button being clicked and thus you can use it to open the Map.
