Dead Space can't change keyboard controls?
WTF I heard now; you can't change the controls? I'm a lefty and want to move with the arrow keys. Is this true and if so; is there a workaround? I won't buy the game if I have to play with the w key because I can't. What is wrong with game devs today?!

You may be able toe dit the config you want in the controlpad config in your documents folder, fallout3 and dead space 9also ports or cross platform have some issues with some keybaord controls) check the FC2 ubi forums as i think people have sussed how to do this now FEAR or can recommend a third party package to get round it.

if you have a G15, turn it 180 degree and rebind the macro keys!

Okay... I don't understand you completely but I'll try when I get it. I'll look in the FC2 forums as well.

In my documents in the ea deadspace folder there is a txt file called "joypadexample", you can rename that to joypad.txt then override joypad settings to keybaord bindings theres posts on "how to" on the deadspace forums on ea.com some people have had issues doing it though and you may have to use a third party keyboard binding package for best results right now to shift AWSD to arrow keys.

The other trick is if you have a G15 turn it 180 degrees so the screen faces you, then bind the macro keys to be arrow keys seen people do that at lan parties when games don't allow remapped keys for lefties. other solutions like the siatek cyborg command pad get round this issue as well.

Ea have been grumped at so hard i expect a patch for dead space very soon to fix the control-key map issues, Ubisoft have already said they will sort control issues in Fc2 asap.

[b]warning:[/b]

After playing Fo3 for a few hours you will stop playing all other games.

It makes WOW look unaddictive!

Just so you know FO3 is fussy with sli its more reliable on single GPu or sli off and prefers prerendered frames on 0 not the standard 3. I suspect new drivers will sort this soon.

I say f*ck EA; they leave PC users in the dark and don't seem to do anything about it. They don't even respond to this issue. It's ridiculous, outrageous. I haven't bought the game and if they don't come with a patch soon (it takes like 1 day to write the keyboard thingy?) they can shove it up their's. But oh my; I'm so happy they're working on add-ins for the consoles! Let them focus on issues rather than making more money of kids. I'm moderately angry with the PC gaming industry; they rush out all their unplayable crap and then think let's patch it until we've had enough of it - or; let's not patch it at all; I've got my new Mercedes so scr*w you all. This attitude is so low. The last games I've played that worked from the box were in the Carmageddon and RTCW days. How funny would it be if we would boycott companies like EA on all platforms world-wide? Then I could stand grinning in front of their HQ all day long :biggrin:

Interesting, I am a leftie but have the mouse on the right and use a-s-d-x for movement. I dont even think I could use a mouse left handed. Wierd.
