I always knew that it would! :] So glad there's a way to do it, even if it's unofficial. I couldn't follow those direction to implement the fix in the steam beta version, but I am guessing I might be able to do it in the final game, so it's okay.

Now if only it would go on sale ^^

I was able to do it with the Steam beta version, so it can be done. :) I do believe I may have found the file in a different location than the one indicated on the directions on that page... Feel free to PM me if I can offer any help, but in case it helps, I first thought it didn't work, then realized I was editing the wrong line in the config file. If some screens or anything of the like would help, just let me know. I'm loving the free camera so far, and I'm surprised by how well it works. I'd expected some issues with the art, but so far it's been great. :)
Is there an actual rough release date for this?

Thanks for info! I just logged in and saw both your messages, so I haven't tried it out, will update when I do :]

And yeah, the screen grabs on the Larian forum also show that the game holds up surprisingly well despite not being set up for it; there are some rough patches, obviously, but the overall result still looks awesome.

I hope this encourages the game dev team to work on making 360 camera official, if not for the initial release, then perhaps as an update for the future.

Niggles: Is there an actual rough release date for this?
There has been nothing official announced other than 'spring'. FWIW, Amazon has the release date listed as June 24th.
Well I managed to find a little time to play the early build kindly gifted to me by Piranjade.

I only got about 45 mins play time in but i must say I like what I have seen, While it feels like the start will be a bit slow I dont see that as a bad thing. I have a habit in these games of either opening or destroying anything I can, this is not going to be an option in OS i dont think, Im pretty sure I broke 6 weapons and only killed 5 things. This could force me to change my playing habits in these games which I do not see as a bad thing.

Hope to get some more time logged either tonight or tomorrow, I should be home by 10am tomorrow so its all good.

But yeah so far im loving it.

The update tomorrow or Friday should give the Repair skill an overhaul. Don't use your good weapons to beat on doors or chests. If you can not find a key, you may be able to use Lockpick, or attack with magic, or a summon. At least for now, if you unequip a weapon you can take out many doors unarmed; Ctrl left click to attack, and then spam right/left click to skip the subsequent attack animations (No weapon hack/bug v 1.0.239).
Will the combat hitboxes be enhanced? Have to pixelhunt at times for the cursor to change to attack the enemy at times especially when my party members are next to the enemy. Otherwise the combat feels great!

cw8: Will the combat hitboxes be enhanced?
Yes. There have also been suggestions to allow ally visibility to be removed for targeting, or allowing the use of the portraits at the top of the screen for regular attacks, rather than just skills and spells, etc, but Larian hasn't mentioned any possible UI changes.
