AoD Controls

Call me old-fashion but I like using the arrow keys for movement. I cannot get used to the anolog because it never turns or moves the way I want. Is there a way to set the controls back to using the arrow keys for movement? :ouch:

Control problems! Help!

I just bought The new Tomb Raider after waiting forever and I am having some difficulties. Controling Lara has totally changed. I feel Like I am playing Resident Evil. I hate this. The best thing about TR for me has always been the way she can be so dynamic in her world. The game's manual says that you have 3 different control "options" The "Options" selection only has "Audio" and "video" What is this all about? I have all Playstation 2 hardware and the Dual shock 2 controller(obviously). Please help before I put my foot through the game. I want to control Lara with the usual buttons, maybe with the exception of the analog stick. Is this possible? :ouch:

bah... personally, id just say ADAPT... but you can change control settings at the startup screen... fool around with those menus i think you'll be fine... and check out the trailer for TR:The Cradle of Life while you're at it... mmmm Angelina...

I'm the same way. Even the other buttons have changed. I cannot figure out how to even reach a section where you can adjust to other control modes. The manual says you can do this, but I haven't even found a "control options" as in most games. I thought that maybe it was my disc or something, but someone verified that it wasn't the disc. It was suggested that after a while of gameplay, maybe control options become available. If that is the case, then Eidos has lessened my love for the TR series. I also don't like the way the camera angles change and mess up your movement/view orientation. I guess I will get used to it as always, but I wish Eidos would have left the damn controls the way they were(at least the button configuration). Let me know if you find anything out. I want to use the directional arrows and put the fricken buttons back where they were! :x

nope

I've tried too. I don't know whether you're playing the ps2 or the pc version, but in the pc version you can't dive all you can do is jump in the water. which is fine, since you only need to get into the water really quick just once when that thing explodes in the drainage place. but there you go.

controls

Sorry to tell you guys this, but I recently beat the game and you don't get to change the controls at all, even if it might say you can in the manual...I found it easy when playing the PS2 version is to press doen on the analog (camera) stick to get the camera behing Lara, but only if you able to actually conrtol the camera because sometimes it's set and you can't move it all!

feeling is mutual

I'm just here to post my gripes about the camera and the controls too........the graphics are wonderfull but I'm not looking at them while I'm trying to dodge a baddie or make a leap to a far ledge lol.......I miss the old TR controls. they just seemed to function when you needed them too. I seem to get a delay when I need them to work like...... RIGHT NOW!!.......pause.....die......rant n rave.....reload.......repeat ........lol..............but, I'm an old TR fan from the start of the series so I guess I'll just have to keep playing :P


Ekhart is futile.....he will be eliminated :borg: ..........lol

It's something to do with the powers that be wanting to release the game ASAP on teh PS2; they hadn't completed these functions in game but the instruction booklets were already printed so they released it anyway.

I preordered it in January it wouldn't have made much difference waiting a bit longer for a vibration/control editting function :evil:

I also am useless at using analog sticks (in any game!). You'll find you just get used to it eventually, though jumping is very innaccurate for me still. Just press R3 to reset the camera, that should help you out a bit.

I can't figure out how to use things once I've picked them up. I can pick up chocalate bars, health packs etc, but I can't use them. i also cannot use my guns I'm pressing space to draw them, but it doesn't work. Can anyone help?

Is there a "camera" mod with PC?? I have seen this with PS2, but I can't seem to find in with PC.

The TAB key will open up a menu with options for Weapons, Health, Items etc. Cycle through weapons to select, similiarly with health and items.

Yes, I would like to know how to do this also. There was a "look" key in the previous versions, but I don't see one in AOD.
