2 Quality of Life Requests for Console

Hello all,

First time posting on the forums, but I have always wanted these two features and I’d like to rid my conscience of needing to ask so here we go!

Is there any way we can get custom keybinding on console? For example, want to be able to change weapon swap/sheathe from left on the D-Pad, to R3 and/or Cycle Enemy to Right on the D-Pad. These are just examples, and I know custom keybinds are available on PC, and it would be great to have this functionality on Console as well.

Secondly, It would be really neat to get the ability to keybind, or even Quickslot “Screenshot Mode”. At the moment it is really cumbersome to have to fumble around the settings menu, deep into video, and then down in between two random screen adjustment sliders to take a quick, beautiful screenshot of the game with no UI.

Thank you for yalls time, I hope this can be added to some workflow corkboard and at least be considered as a possible QoL update for a future patch. Also if anyone thinks I need to move this post, or have a better place for suggestions please let me know,

Thank you!

    You can already remap buttons on PlayStation, most likely a Xbox too.

    I’m about to blow your mind bud. You can do all of this with an elite controller or some other after market controllers via the settings app on Xbox. However, it won’t solve the screenshot issue of removing the UI. That one is on ZOS.

    But you have to remap for everything you do on console, you can't just remap for ESO. You have to choose one of the templates and you can't adjust them

    Yeah, I’m aware of that, but it does solve the issue. For the 2 minutes it takes to switch settings around compared to the hours you would most likely be working for, it works.

    Or as suggested by another user some after market controllers have modified buttons that you can re-assign.

    Neither are a perfect fix, but that’s almost the price we pay for playing on console 🤷‍♂️

    There plenty of other things I’d prefer then to work on compared to controller mappings.

    Assigning the screenshot mode to the hot wheel would be nice though

    Come to PC, we have nearly limitless keybindings, and you can still play with an Xbox controller (I do).

    😈

    With the microsoft merger, are the servers still split for crowns/collections?

    Yeah, I’m tracking— but that is unsatisfactory and tbh a huge hassle remembering to swap back and forth. It should be something available to change in game— PC has it, there is no reason we can’t.

    Yeah… but it doesn’t have to be… hence why I’m asking for a change?

    how about...hear me out...console just gets keyboard support? Why can we only use a keyboard to type? There's no reason that a game ported from pc over to console shouldn't have keyboard/mouse play support
