ConsolePort  Popular! (More than 5000 hits)

Version: 1.9.6
by: MunkDev [More]

ConsolePort
Game Controller Addon
DualShock 4, Xbox controllers, Steam controller

Resources
IMPORTANT: This addon requires third-party software for keyboard and mouse emulation. Using third-party software is not prohibited by Blizzard as long as it doesn't automate your gameplay.

ConsolePort will give you a handful of nifty features in order to let you play the game on a controller - without inconvenience. There are a lot of tutorials and videos on how to set up your controller for World of Warcraft, but the most game-breaking part about all of them is how they in no way contribute to an easy game experience. Instead of resorting to macros and gimmicks to make the setup viable, this addon fundamentally changes how the game works.

Using the addon, you should be able to effortlessly do the same tasks with a controller as you would with a mouse and keyboard. On top of this, it will NOT interfere with your normal keyboard and mouse setup, leaving you to choose which way you want to play the game without having to rebind and reconfigure every time you change peripherals.

Controller support

ConsolePort currently supports Xbox and Dualshock 4 controllers natively, courtesy of WoWmapper. ConsolePort is not restricted to those, but it is somewhat restricted to conventional controller layouts. It requires a set of atleast 14-15 buttons, which is what you'll find on any version of the PlayStation, Xbox or Logitech controllers. Currently, the Dualshock 4 is strongly recommended because of its precision and superior mouse curve.

Instructions

DualShock 4 / Xbox 360 / Xbox One / Xbox Elite / XInput controllers on Windows
  1. Download WoWmapper here.
  2. Install WoWmapper and start it up.
  3. Connect your controller by USB or Bluetooth.
  4. Click Plugins to change controller (default is Dualshock 4).
  5. Install the addon and start the game.

Using the addon

Camera and mouse control

Mouse look is a feature within the game where you lock your mouse cursor in order to control the camera in 3D-space. This state is usually triggered by holding down the right mouse button. ConsolePort utilizes this feature to a great extent to keep you from having to hold down a button on the controller in order to control your character and camera. You can seamlessly use the mouse cursor when necessary, but keep it locked otherwise.

Toggles OFF automatically when:
  1. Casting mouse spells (Trap Launcher, Ring of Frost, Heroic Leap, etc.)
  2. Picking up spells, items, macros, glyphs, etc.
  3. Using R3 or right clicking.
  4. "Interact with mouseover" is triggered.

Toggles ON automatically when:
  1. Changing targets.
  2. Placing the mouse cursor on your character.
  3. Interacting with NPCs.
  4. Looting.

Mouse behaviour can be customized in the interface options to suit your own playstyle. By keeping the mouse cursor centered on screen, it's easy to pick up items, loot mobs and target things in melee range.

Virtual cursor

The virtual cursor is a replacement for the mouse when using the interface. It snaps to clickable and interactive objects across the interface. It is controlled by the D-pad for moving and the right-hand buttons to left and right click. It can be customized to your own liking, and with a bit of know-how, you can integrate other addons to work with the cursor.
Default setup:
  • Circle or B - left click
  • Square or X - right click


Custom binding manager

ConsolePort does not use the normal keybinding system at all. Initially, a wizard will ask you to click the buttons on your controller in order to bind them. Beyond the initial setup, ConsolePort uses its own binding system, which can be found by clicking Controller on the game menu. With 15 buttons dedicated to bindings with 4 combinations each, you have a total of 60 possible bindings. You can expand the amount further by using action pages.


Virtual keyboard

The virtual keyboard is a replacement for typing, if you want to skip using keyboard altogether. This unconventional way of typing has a steep learning curve, but is eventually much faster than moving a virtual cursor across a virtual QWERTY-layout. It is controlled by moving the left stick around while pressing buttons on the right hand side. Using L1, L2 or L1+L2 will swap out the character sets. The keyboard has 8 circles with 4 buttons inside them, each containing 4 different combinations. It is highly customizable; it has a total of 128 combinations, and you can change any of them to be whatever you want.

Change log can be viewed on GitHub.

Hopefully this is the correct place for requests, but I was wondering if it would be possible to allow the spell artwork to be shown on the Console Port action bar when using any of the bars from the Bartender 4 add-on? Right now, ConsolePort only shows the default keyboard icon in place of what the spell icon should be.The reason for this request is that I enjoy playing on keyboard and mouse as well as controller sometimes, but I don't want to have to change the layout of either one. Yes, I could bind the ConsolePort buttons to whatever action button I like on the stock UI, but it then becomes chaotic because while my keyboard bindings are the same for all classes, not all of my different class abilities are in the same spot. Splitting these two would alleviate that. Difficult to word what I'm looking for so hopefully that makes sense lol.

Nintendo Switch controllers

Hello there, just a quick question.
Nintendo recentelly developed new controllers that are either Bluethoot controllers or USB controllers for Nintendo Switch. I would like to know if there is a chance that ConsolePort will sooner or later support Nintendo Switch controllers.

Tooltips issue?

Greetings, just returned to wow after several years hiatus and quickly found your consoleport as the best overall solution for using a ps4 controller. One issue that is currently bugging me to no avail is the tooltips background being blank after you have attacked something. At first I thougtht that it might be related to LUI of which I have used for years after I stopped updating my spartanui variant and so thinking it was perhaaps LUI as the source of the issue I first disabled LUI tooltips. That did not correct the issue.I then disabled LUI completely not just the tooltips and the issue still is present. I also disabled immersion to see if that was a cause and it is not.

What happens is the tooltip background works fine prior to targetting and such but then when you target and kill something the tooltip now has no background making the tooltip almost impossible to read if near or over any npc or other frame layer etc etc. Reloading ui via addon control panel allows the background to reappear until you tar and kill again and the issue reoccurs. It is the only issue I see with consoleport and enough of a visual issue for me to mention it here in the hopes of seeing a quick fix or workaround?**


** Update: my bad, I must correct my previous assumption as upon further usage and review it actually appears that it is not an issue with consoleport, immersion or lui usage together and appears to be related to the usage of aurora and auctioneer with that combo or entirely an unrelated issue with either or

Just Menu

Hi, is there a way to use the menu part of the addon for a keyboard and mouse interface?
Since the toc has dependencies for other parts of the addon I'm asking this myself.
Thanks for the top quality addon, have a good one!

NVM, I bought a genuine Microsoft XBOX controller and everything is fine. Now I have to figure out how to use the controller.

I cannot calibrate my controller... it does not recognize my key presses... I have PS4 controller with DS4Windows running. I use it fine to play ESO, and most steam games. But wow does not recognize it . I only use this addon and no other.

My PS4 is connected with the sony bluetooth dongle.

seen as how my last wish came true - being able to invert the y-axis,
i thought I'd chance another request - might it be possible to hide the hotkey text altogether when used on the standard bartender bars?
thankyou so much for this awesome mod.

First I would like to say THANK YOU! This addon has gotten me more exited about playing WoW again! I have been running mythic + and raids pretty easy with the controller now and the more I use it the more I love it!
Now for my question I hope you or anyone else maybe able to help me with. I just purchased a Razer Wildcat Xbox one controller (Witch I highly recommend for any game!). If you are not familiar with this controller It is a modded esport controller with 4 additional buttons. My problem is the extra buttons control the same thing as the shoulder triggers and the addon doesnt reconize the extra buttons to bind them to anything. Is there a way I can bind 4 extra spells to these buttons thru the addon? Probably a stupid question but id like to bind things like pots mount and maybe dps cds to these extra buttons.

Not sure exactly how this happend, but it appears you're missing cursor settings. They should be loaded along with everything else when you first log in and seemingly that's what happens when I do a full reset on my end.

/cp resetall will wipe your settings and set everything to default, which should fix your problem.


Yes! that did it. That's weird that a fresh install did that. It was an old installation of wow itself though. Maybe there were files elsewhere I did not delete. Thanks either way!

Hide the pet bar?

Is there anyway to hide the pet circle completely? I don't want it there even when I'm out of combat.

Also with DPS that can offheal this would be really good, but I don't want to let the raid cursor on forever, since this is a secondary activity, primary one being DPS.
Not possible in the current game API.

I didnt test this with the raid cursor bug my guess is that this will happen as well.
Custom UI scales work fine. The problem is mixing different frame scales, because the cursor calculations will yield the same results even when things don't look the same on-screen. Using a uniform scale should not come with any issues, but if you use other addons that sets a lower or higher frame scale, paired with a custom overall UI scale, you might run into trouble. Same logic applies to unit frames.
