    Keyboard mappings are in the settings, yes, it's the option immediately following the option to configure controllers, IIRC.

    That's odd, it showed me the right advice. Do you have a controller connected by any chance? You might need to disable it in the game settings.

    I'm encouraged by what I'm hearing here. I think I'll have to pick this up.

    Yeah found the keyboard config. After a restart of the game and toggling AMD Enduro it all worked okay with proper prompts.

    you're derping...and probably have a gamepad/joystick plugged in, so the game defaulted to it. keyboard buttons are very clear, and indicated to you in the initial tutorials clearly haha :D

    Linking this ultra setting guide for those who haven't tired it yet.

    This game brings a new form of tension it's different from amnesia etc.

    Big fan of the franchise and Alien movies the sound affects are unreal love hearing the alien rattle around above you, had a moment where I sat still near a roof vent and the goo started dripping down onto the floor from the alien it hissing and carrying on, thought yep im dead. held still for a minute and it went somewhere else.

    Attention to detail is off the charts but it is a slower paced game

    OH FUCK! THIS AIN'T GOOD!

    EDIT: anyone far enough into the game to find the ion and plasma torches? cos there's a lot of areas early in the game that need either one to unlock.

    Mouse+keyboard frustration,
    I'm on Mission 4 - Seegson Communications and have just done the cut scene with Samuels and am trying to return to the transit hub and have to get past those f/ing androids

    every time I select a smoke bomb/emp mine /flashbang and have it ready to use when I try to throw it she reverts back to the door opener tool by that time one of the androids has spotted me and its to late to get back into the radial menu to reselect the item I want to use, what am I doing wrong?

    Run? Androids aren't fast. I was able to sneak past most of them quite easily using the motion tracker but I found running easy as well.

    I must say this game is f**ing awesome! Love playing it in a dark room with sound up. I usually hate stealth/sneak games but the atmosphere and the awesome gfx (besides being a massive Alien/aliens fan) make this a welcome change.
    Best alien game ever, aside from minor lip sync issues a big home run.

    edit: make sure you dl the improved visuals settings.. smoke/shadows/lighting are fantastic

    An Alien franchise game that delivers?

    Right, it's on my list. Very pleased that my doom'n'gloom earlier in the thread is proved false! :thumbup:

    And when has "too long" ever been a negative for a good game?
    Is there some other dimension you need to get to Ace? :p
