Disabled People Can Play Skyrim Through Steam Controller

A Steam Controller has been manufactures by Valve. This controller is extremely customizable under different circumstances.

It has large and circular trackpads which enable highly recommendable performance. A user on Reddit used the customizable quality of Controller in a very beneficial way.

Chris Hepburn, remapped the buttons in Skyrim. The genius user made this new invention out of controller to help disabled players to take control and play with one hand only.

The controller can now be used very easily for one-handed people. By tilting the controller right, left, up and down will handle the movements of your characters.

The camera will now be controlled by right haptic pad. The trigger on the right will have multi-purpose uses. It can both defend and attack.

If you tap than your character will be in attack mode, while, holding with the finger will put your character in defense mode.

By tapping the left analog stick, the weapons will change. The buttons, however, A, B, X and Y have been left untouched and they are of no use.

Hepburn also explained that he made the one-handed configuration of the device because a user requested it for his father who, unfortunately, can use his right hand only.

For other people, who can use their right hand only and want to have this new fun device, Hepburn explained; “If you want the config it’s ID is 553140965 or it’s called ‘Skyrim (Right hand only version) by hepburn3d.’”

Hepburn also said that the controller best works when a cushion is placed for support too. Reaching for analog stick and using the controller can be really weary for some people.

Different Reddit users have suggested that a left-handed version should be developed soon. And, Hepburn is optimistic in working for others. We must say, Bravo Hepburn!
