Guess I'll have to try it with mouse/keyboard then... *sobs* BRB to verify its just a controller issue.
EDIT: EHHHHHH!!!! It WAS the controller fucking it up.... Very interesting. When I unplugged the controller and started the game it was perfectly fine. WHY MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE?????????
*gives in and plans on buying a fucking X350 for PC controller since every fucking game seems to demand one to be perfectly compatible - I'm so over reconfigging the buttons every single game*
I've noticed if I'm pushing an analog stick at all while a game's trying to calibrate it fucks up and keeps pushing the opposite direction when it should be neutral, I'm assuming you're familiar with this and that's not what happened?
Yeah sorry about that, I like my MERC Stealth keyboard as the software comes preconfigured for every game and I just select my game and boot in, it's already got a great default which I can make a custom config off of if I like. There's gotta be a gamepad that does the same, but dunno, not a gamepad guy. I do like dual analog for games like Darksiders though...:(
