How do I remap or change buttons on my game controller or game pad for GTAV GTA5 or change the buttons on the game controller from the default set by the game?
If you play GTA with a gamepad or hand controller and find the buttons are in the wrong place or do the wrong things for you then you need to remap the game pad. However, the problem is its quite a lot of hassle to do and requires a lot of internet searches and in some cases OpenIV to extract or input the files.
Rockstar who made the game really dropped the ball on this one and made it really quite difficult to do this and if you use a PC usually gamepad for driving and keyboard for when out of the vehicle, or you use a mod in GTA like LSPDFR then you will find just using a program like Joy2key will still not only open your selections but the default ones too for example you remap a key to say shift on the controller and that alerts a ped to pull over their vehicle but it also aims a driveby weapon at them at the same time!
Best Mods for LSPDFR
I have played a lot of LSPDFR for those who do not know it is a mod that can be used with GTA5 to allow you to play a cop. However, the modding scene led by the likes of Albo1125 and promoters of the format such as Jeff Favignano on YouTube demonstrate this is not going away anytime soon, if anything due to the popularity of GTArp on Twitch many of the LSPDFR mods have found their way into FiveM (a GTA5Mod that synchronises multiplayer modifiable private game servers with economies jobs and of course COPS!). So assuming you have a licenced copy of GTA5 and you are then good to go! Just goo to the LSPDFR website and download and install it. You can play it for a while in its vanilla form and it really is great fun! THE POWER!!!
However, you may soon tire and then yearn for a bit more depth to the game, such as being able to search, charge, fine and even do speed and radar or checks call for tow trucks, coroners and EMS! So what mods do you think you would need that are easy to install but really change the game? The thing is by comparison with playing a cop in GTA RP means you invariably have to queue to play and are unlikely to play a cop as the better servers make you train as one thats assuming you can even get on them in the first place! This bypasses all that because it is on your local PC you can do what you want and police however you like! Plus you do not have to talk to anybody if you do not want to. Unless you are streaming it to add some immersion.
So I have been watching and playing a LOT of GTA RP (Role Play). But there are many nuances and rules to this game. I am currently writing a big story about it and the politics surrounding it. It will be due soon.
But until then here is a teaser.
This really took off about a year ago on Twitch and some of the biggest players like Lirik made this an overnight sensation.
Still trying to find the time to do some reviews. I am gathering screenshots. However some of my preferred games have now been updated from BETA and are even better. So having more game time. Suffice it to say, at least I cannot be blammed for brushing over things and am really loving a few that are must haves – stay tuned!
