PS4 Button layout completely gone!
After the latest patch the ps4 button layout is completely gone.
the ps4 button icons are now replaced with xbox icons.

Hoping this gets fixed soon. Really liked that it had ps4 button layout!

It still plays the same, but having that button layout is just a really nice touch.

When did they add PS4 prompts? Cause I know when they added the PS4 controls for this game it still had the Xbox prompts and people were sad that it didn't change to the promts to PS4 buttons. Are you sure you are remembering right?

Yup a 100% certain!
Still playing through hearts of stone and it's awesome.

the ps4 button prompts were a mod

When did they add them in the game? First I have heard of this, can't even find anything on the internet about them being added in.

Nah, the game had native DS4 prompts for menus I think. Ingame they were Xbox prompts. And it apparently only had those if the controller was connected via USB.

No. I'm not using any mods and I had the DS4 prompts just before the new patch. I updated today with the new patch and the prompts are gone. It's just a problem with the patch, nothing more.
Nothing that that will make the game worse or anything like that, but it was nice to have the buttons.

As you can see I'm not the only one that did see that.

The game has full DS4 support. Even the light bar changes depending of what you are doing or what it is happening (combat for example), for example it turns to red when you use IGNI and things like that. The only thing missing now are the prompts.

No. The game had full prompts, in game or for the menus. It's just a problem with the patch.
Nothing that hurts the game, however.

Yes, Witcher 3 on PC is able to use the DS4 exactly as if you were playing/seeing it on PS4.
Just launch the game with your DS4 controller plugged in, and (pre-patch) you were able to see the PS4 icons.

I took a look in the configs and it seems like the support is still there, I'm just not sure where to "toggle" it manually yet:

IK_Pad_Y_TRIANGLE=(Action=AttackHeavy)
IK_Pad_Y_TRIANGLE=(Action=SpecialAttackHeavy,State=Duration,IdleTime=0.2)
IK_Pad_X_SQUARE=(Action=AttackLight)
IK_Pad_X_SQUARE=(Action=SpecialAttackLight,State=Duration,IdleTime=0.2)
IK_PS4_TOUCH_PRESS=(Action=FastMenu)
IK_PS4_TOUCH_PRESS=(Action=HoldFastMenu,State=Duration,IdleTime=0.3)

I've played over 400 hours and this the first I've heard of full DS4 support! I've been playing with keyboard & mouse this whole time while my DS4 controller gathers dust in my closet. Thanks guys!

Yep same here. ps4 button prompts only kicked on if you were using the native ps4 ccompatibility. If you use something like ds4windows to emulate a xbox controller you got xbox button prompts. If you turned off ds4windows then you get the dualshock button prompts.

Since the new update, there is no more ds4 button prompts. Almost unplayable. Please fix ASAP

I have a feeling it's probably something they overlooked in the big UI overhaul

For me the ps4 controler still works perfectly besides there being No ps4 icons.
