Star Wars: Squadrons...

<< < (2/2)

Reaver:
yea...

an hour of game play and can't get the controls mapped out.
an hour of online searches for a manual to figure out whaty the FUCK I am supposed to do... (news flash! NO FUCKING MANUAL!)


Refund requested...

After the BG3 shittery I am NOT going down the same fucking road... AGAIN.

CanRay:
Sorry.   :'(

This is why I'm so heavily against EA games, stuff like no manuals.

FYI:  You might want to get a wired X-Box Controller, games, far too often, are made for consoles today, and they map the buttons the same which means the programs TYPICALLY recognize you have such-and-such a controller, and will display on the screen what buttons to press.  (Before people complain, after I shattered my elbow, which is identical to being kneecapped but in an ARM, I can't do mouse-and-keyboard any longer.).

It's also why I got the game for PS4 instead of PC, especially as they made the damned thing Crossplay (I hope.).

Reaver:
Yea 
In this case the straw that broke the camel's bavk was the 2nd mission in the fucking game... they ask you to fire missiles at a ship.....

Push the 3 botton to fire.....
Ok.... nothing happens. Try again. Nothing. Try again nothing.


Lose the joystick, go to KB and mouse.
"Use the right mouse button to fire missiles.... ok...
Right click. Nothing. Try again. Nothing. Again.... nothing....
.
REMAP THE FUCKING MISSILE FIRE TO THE 3 KEY ON THE KB....
press the 3 key to fire missiles.
Đadda.
Try again. Nadda.
TRY AGAIN WITH A FUCKING HAMMER!!!! Nadda.

Spend an hour looking for the fucking manual on what the fuck to do.... NADDA!!

3 DIFFERENT articles from 3 different publishers tell me to do 3 entirely fucking DIFFERENT things to do to fire fucking missiles.......

Really?!?!?!

Not even the motherfucking "pros" can agree on how to get a fucking core mechanic to work????

FUCK YOU EA. FUCK YOU WITH YOUR OWN KEYBOARD. SIDEWAYS.  WRAPPED IN BARBED WIRE.

and don't forget to rotate that barbwire sideways keyboard at least 720 degrees while inserted.


<edited for spelling>
ON the moronic side of things....

A game, made 17 years ago, for an operating system 3 generations out of date..... Works great with a 1 gig texture and win10 mod patch...
Joystick controls all responsive. intuitive control set up out of the box..
Tutorial goes by like a breeze.....

Everything. Just. Works....

X-wing alliance. Old as dirt, works the first time.. 65 page manual in DTF...

Star Was Squadrons (not a spelling mistake!): made by a MULTI BILLION dollar company. Can't even be bothered to tell you how their controls work with a fucking PDF....

EA: fucking up gaming since 1991.

Ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff...   :'(
