Dead Space/batman arkham asylum Controls...

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
hello I just purchased dead space/batman for pc on steam sale and while the games are extremely fun only thing i find annoying is the fact you can not seem to change the game controls to anything almost on dead space, and on batman you are almost forced to use a xbox control.

1)Does anyone know any way to change your controls in the options in dead space? it is pre set to WASD for movement and ca not be changed to anything i tried. I game using the arrow keys/and have been using them for ages ( yes i game with arrow key lol)

2) I have a logitech wireless control that looks like a playstation type model can i use this instead of a xbox control?

any information is appreciated.

P.S- i tried to game using WASD but i freaking hate it, i can not get used to it and retrain myself to get adapted to those keys, every time i use them my fingers get lost and i always wind up pressing wrong keys all the time.

Well if you really wanted to, you could remap the keys on your keyboard to the arrow keys while playing the game via a macro or script, but that may be too much of a pain?

Batman AA- you have to have an xbox 360 controller hack for the game, but while it worked for me, it was never as good as a 360 controller. Just grab a controller, most games use that as the default layout, and most won't let you use anything else, hack or no hack.

no ideas on dead space, but batman does allow you to change controls and you dont need a controller.

When you load it from steam, it brings up a pop-up launcher that allows you to change "settings" then go along to "movement controls" and "action controls" to change your settings.. You can't, however, change them mid-game. which annoyed me a little, since the intro is so long.

do not use the mouse/keyboard for batman AA. It's terrible

use the 360 emulator found on tocaedit.

I finished B:AA easily with keyboard/mouse. No problems. Though I didn't have the option for a 360 controller at that time. I might've done it if I got the game now.

man that is extremely lame on both games specially batman why the heck do they force pc users to use a xbox controler. That is extremely annoying and ridiculous. the pc is not a xbox 360 and feels to me like they just ported directly from the xbox and were too lazy to change anything.

I don't own a xbox 360 and i sure as hell will not buy a controller just for this game.

someone recommended:
http://www.tocaedit.com/IB/index.php?automodule=downloads&showfile=4

what about this one:
http://code.google.com/p/x360ce/wiki/MainPage

is this the file? how does this work anyways?
for dead space looks like i will be forced to just get used to wasd and man up.

thank you all for information i appreciate it a lot. But man i am a bit pissed on batman game if i knew they forced you to use xbox control i would of not even bothered to purchase.

These seem to be the most updated files

http://code.google.com/p/x360ce/downloads/list

I use to have an old version of the 360 emulator for my logitech rumblepad 2, but i didn't need it as of last month since my purchase of a 360 controller for Windows.

I think you'll have to extract both files, put them in the same folder, and open up the icon that looks like a gamepad. And it might tell you what to do from there.

good luck

I highly recommending Pinnacle Game Profiler to Gamers if they wanted to use GamePad. download here

If you felt not comfort to play video games with keyboard & mouse. but I suggest you buy the speedpad G13 or 52nte. I do prefer G13 over 52nte. wink.gif

Man I have just started playing through dead space which i have to say its a awesome game specially since i love playing survival horror games etc.

Even though i like the game i have to say i am extremely pissed/disappointed in the fact that the game developers "force" the users to a certain type of controller and do not allow you to map keys as you wish. This is extremely irritating me now that i purchased the game if i knew this i wouldn't even bothered to buy it.

What i mean is that the game only recognizes xbox 360 controller and any regular pc controller is forced map to the xbox 360. This is retarded not everyone in the world owns a xbox 360 and i sure as hell ain't buying a controller just for this game and batman aa also.

What pisses me off more is the fact i can't even change the arrow keys i always use for pc and its forced to be used for something else this is retarded as hell. Why couldn't they leave everything open to bind as you like like every other pc game ever created.

Does anyone feel like i do or am i alone on this?
any information on arrow key for pc/using regular pc controllers is extremely appreciated.

P.S- jesus if i wanted to buy batman AA for xbox i wouldnt of bought it for xbox dont force people who buy it for "pc" also be forced to use it.
