A Question and a Suggestion
« on: March 21, 2013, 10:15:52 AM »
So, just picked this game up and playing it through with my g/f.  We are loving it so far; I think it's easily Arcen's best game since AI War.

However, we did have some trouble initially getting the controls set up.  Why are there two gamepad control slots for each key?  Also, the bottom one does not seem to respond well to attempts to change it - if I click on it at all it changes to say something like Axis #5 (Neg) and then won't change to anything else or let me clear it.  I ended up having to go into the config file and manually remove the second line of gamepad controls from everything.

Also, just a quick suggestion: Near the beginning when you are separated by the broken bridge, the game does not make it clear that you are supposed to stay separated.  I lost a few points of health trying to find a way back across the bridge before I realized it was futile - this is espeically true because Lela has a line about repairing the bridge quickly so you can get back across, but there's no dialog to indicate that it's impossible.

Well now I don't feel so dumb for doing the exact same thing.

Thanks!

First thing:

* Ported over the improved keybinding screens from Valley 2, with the two gamepad mappings (axis and buttons) combined into one mapping line item.  This is far less confusing!

And part 2:

* Updated Lela's text in the second part of the tutorial to make it clear that you can't get back across the broken bridge, so you have to travel separately.


By the way, falling in water doesn't hurt you; it just delays you for a second, so any pursuing grays have a chance to catch up with you... :)
