PC Controller Settings Updates

Updated To Accommodate New Actions

For Iceborne, majority of the keyboard settings have been revamped to make gameplay easier with the new actions and features offered.

Major Keyboard Changes List

  • - You can now assign keys separately for actions like "dashing/sheathing" and "weapon/slinger aiming" that have variations between pressing the key once or holding the key.
  • - Due to the addition of numerous presets for different weapon types and mouse types, the "Set to Default" option has been consolidated to one button.
  • - Using "Set to Default" will revert presets to match the number of buttons of the mouse you are currently using.
  • - Melee & ranged weapon keyboard settings and configurations will carry over in this update, but due to changes in the menu controls, menu settings will all be set to new defaults.
  • - Various menu settings have been redone in order to align with new features and changes. The following commands have had their keyboard settings fixed, and are no longer available as customizable settings:
  • (a) Toggle Cursor Position / Check Loadout: fixed to the [Shift] key.
  • (b) Auto-sort / Search / Filter / Set Waypoint: fixed to the [Tab] key.
  • (c) Open Skill Info Help: fixed to the [Ctrl] key.
  • - In order to prevent misclicks with the left mouse button in the menu, left clicks only select the menu item that the cursor is hovering over.
  • - The following keys are now fixed during menu controls, and can no longer be re-assigned within the "Menu Controls" category: [Left Click], [Esc], [Ctrl], [Shift], [Tab], [Mouse Wheel Up/Down].

Improved Start Menu Player Movement

The start menu player movement has been changed and renamed to "Start Menu Keyboard Controls" setting.

Only Use Dash Settings With Gamepad

Using the dash settings can now only be accessed when you've chosen the gamepad options in controls.

New Keyboard Shortcut Input

"One Key Keyboard Shortcuts" setting has changed to "Keyboard Shortcut Input", which lets you select the input type for keyboard shortcuts. There is also a new input type that lets you press a key to call up the radial menu, then press the key again to use the shortcut.

PC Graphics Settings Changes

Support For Programs Added

Support has been added for DirectX 12 API (which requires Windows 10, version 1809 or later) and for FidelityFX CAS. This includes "FidelityFX CAS + Upscaling", which allows for higher resolution for low performance costs.

New Options For Display Output

There will be new options added to "Display Output Settings", making the experience more personal & customizable.

Advanced Graphics Settings Changes List

  • "Advanced Graphics Settings" options added: Capsule AO; Contact Shadows; Snow Quality.

  • The default setting for "Screen Mode / HDR Setting" the first time you boot the game has been set to "Borderless Window".
  • The Highest setting for Graphic Settings originally set Dynamic Range to 64-Bit, but because the performance costs of 64-Bit settings may limit these effects even on HDR displays, the default setting has been changed to 32-Bit.

Mouse Camera Controls Changes List

  • The "Mouse Camera Control Type" setting has been removed and the setting that was formerly "Type 2" has been applied, which has no mouse acceleration and is easier to use.
