Advanced Controller Bindings

A small guide to help you further and more freely set up your controller’s keybinds for The Crew 2.


How often have you wanted to customise the controls in The Crew 2 only to find out that certain keys and actions only get swapped out and that you can’t fully set up your controller the way you want it?

For example, you want to change the button for the car’s horn without automatically changing the smoke for planes? Fear not, for here comes the solution.

First off, you will need to find your Bindings_6cb1beb1.xml which is located in Users/Documents/The Crew 2 and make a back-up of it, just to be on the safe side.
You can open the file with Notepad and start editing the buttons by writing whatever button you want to do what.

List of Buttons

To edit your binds, you will need to know what text in the file corresponds to what button. To save you the trouble of finding that out yourself, here’s a list:

BUTTON1 = DirectionalPad (DPad) Up
BUTTON2 = DirectionalPad Down
BUTTON3 = DirectionalPad Left
BUTTON4 = DirectionalPad Right
BUTTON5 = Start
BUTTON6 = Back
BUTTON7 = Left Stick (press)
BUTTON8 = Right Stick (press)
BUTTON9 = Left Button
BUTTON10 = Right Button
RRIGHT = Right stick right
RLEFT = Right stick left
RUP = Right stick up
RDOWN = Right stick down
SLIDER1 = Left trigger
SLIDER2 = Right trigger
LEFT = Left stick left
RIGHT = Left stick right
UP = Left stick up
DOWN = Left stick down

List of Actions

Most of the actions listed in the file are quite self explanatory, but a few do things they don’t say, so again, a small overview:
