Having hard time targetting enemies


Question

So I dont know if my current issue is in relation to the recent PC patch and the infamous June 23rd or what but let me say my issue.

 

Okay so I'm in the game. I see an enemy coming towards me; ok now hes in front of me, I hit the attack button but whats this? My character immediately attacks behind me; not in front of me.

 

Needless to say this has to be the most frustrating thing of all. Dont get me wrong Ive now reached 50% of the game. Absolutely love this game. LOL in fact I love it so much that I am playing each character and bring the other characters equivelant to my main character so I'm putting in x4 times the hours. (for instance I'll play from Stormsong Cavern, where you get your party member all the way to the 1st Causeway entrance; then bring each other characters to that point)

 

Point being; I'm having issues targetting things (barrels to break) or even enemies.

 

So its like this; in order for me to actually attack the enemy is that he needs to be behind me for me to attack properly.

 

Now I may have stumbled upon something the last 10minutes of gameplay last night but i havent fully 100% tested this yet. When I'm facing forward, IF by chance when I hit the attack button and my character attacks/swings behind me; if I press the letter D button my character will then attack properly in front of me.

 

But hypothetically lets say that it doesnt fix the issue. What then?

 

I heard that people were having some issues with the recent PC version patch of mixing keyboard letters A and D; lol and honestly I havent really noticed.

 

But anyways here I am, wondering why my character/characters (since its happened to more than 1 character I'm playing) when facing forward does the character always always always attack behind me????

 

Thanks

 

PS. I'm about to watch a movie here shortly so I'll be back in 2.5hrs (or less). Then I'll go play the game and check it out too. Just seeking first thoughts/fixes before I attempt to play

 

PPS. I dont have any configuration changed. So everything is at defaults. I didnt reverse Y Axis, or X axis, or change any keyboard layouts (by the way, does this new patch allow you to modify the key bindings????)

No my test is not 100% effective. Even though I'm facing forward and I attack, and while my character automatically fires behind me (not in front) and by pressing the letter D; it does not make the character fire the correct way.

 

So I'm still stumped. I'm not sure why my characters do this.

Your mouse is used as a targetter; your character will face and attack in the direction your mouse pointer is. This way, you can use the mouse to target stuff near and far away, while still moving independently (e.g. move forward with W key, but move your mouse cursor behind and attack = man turns around and attacks.)

 

Can you experiment with that and see if that's part of the problem?

off the top of my head; I know during dialog I have to position my mouse correctly so it aligns up with the speech I want my character to use.

 

As far as combat/targetting. Well if I use my mouse and point at a barrel, the character still doesnt hit it. But I will try it some more tonight.

wow that seemed very easy. Thank you VERY much. That solved my issue.

 

Basically my mouse pointer needs to be in front of the character for he/she to attack front; if the cursor is behind then it will constantly attack from behind.

 

I just played thru the Heroes' Crypt on my 2nd character and had no problems whatsoever with attacking correctly. You helped me a great deal :lol:
