Excuse my ignorance, but what are '4 ways'?

I saw a topic forever ago which was talking about this. The resolution they came to was that it couldn't happen on a console controller, but with a keyboard instead. Somehow they connected the keyboard to the Xbox and made the hazard lights flash. The PS4 control panel, the side control one has this function already.

Although, I could be wrong. Sorry for any incorrect information. *thumbsup*

The folks at BlackSheep Modding found a work-around, that made it an option on their 40 series. It’s quite brilliant if you ask me.

They're already there if you have the right keyboard. (I don't, so I don't use them)

But yeah, they could easily add blinkers/4 ways/hazards/whatever you call them to console but they won't. It's been asked for since FS17 (at least) but it's not high on their priorities list. Just like BSM did with the 40 series, they should come on with the beacons. Of course, then the EU guys would get mad...

Why would we (EU guys) get mad about beacons? We have them too.

But not the hazard and the beacon at the same time

I think the point was if you turn on the beacons you get hazards as well.

A bit of continental stereotyping on my part I guess. :lol:

*Googles British words* Sorry chap, didn't mean to get you miffed. I'll buy you a pint at the pub with some fish and chips or something. :hi:

No, I figured the easiest way to add 4 ways would be like BSM's 40 series and have them come on with the beacons. I wasn't sure if that was a common practice in Europe so I figured you guys and gals may not like that solution.

skip all those extra lights the other cars and trucks traveling on the maps don't care if you have them on or not.

Well no, you don't use hazard lights unless your vehicle stationary and is a hazard -- or you are on the motorway (highway) ...
... or you don't expect anyone to notice :)
