key binding?
Sin Emergence:

I am unable to make the turn left and right keys functional. I can bind them fine in the options, it just has no effect, regardless of what key i assign them to.

Is this broken?

Is there any workaround for this? This is a game breaking bug for me, since i cannot use mouselook. Running backwards and forwards only lets you play for the first room and only to the wall, i would dearly love to be able to turn left or right.

Re: key binding?
Odd, have you got a gamepad installed?

Have you tried deleting the .cfg files, try running Sin Episodes with the "-autoconfig" parameter, it is in advanced options.

Very odd .......

Re: key binding?
no gamepad or joystick installed.

deleted config.cfg, no luck

tried -autoconfig on the command line, no luck

It updates the config.cfg file properly, so the keys that i bind are persistent. Ie, if i bind a turn movement to right arrow and left to mouse button 1. The new config.cfg file will have

bind "UPARROW" "+forward"
bind "DOWNARROW" "+back"
bind "RIGHTARROW" "+right"
bind "MOUSE1" "+left"

The only problem is that while it will go forward and backwards, it ignores turning left or right no matter what key or button i bind to it.

I have not tried binding in the console screen, as i would assume that if the game is smart enough to record the key bindings through the options screens (yes they are persistent) that would be enough.

Any other suggestions,

Re: key binding?
By enabling the console, but not making any changes within it, when i use the SE1 engine to change the keyboard bindings, it does display

Initializing renderer...
Failed to load sound "npc/sintek/vo/grunt_death4.wav", file probably missing from disk/repository
couldn't exec userconfig.cfg
Wrote cfg/config.cfg
couldn't exec userconfig.cfg
Wrote cfg/config.cfg

This might just be trash debug code left in, but it does update the config file.

So far only the turn left/right and the look up and down key are not functioning....sadly no way to tell if swim up or swim down will work when i bind a key to them.

This is fresh install with the same problem. All my other HL2 based games are able to bind to whatever keys i assign to the turn left/right keys...this is annoying :confused:

Re: key binding?
Right I think its the version of Source they are using, I'd guess it will be fixed in future updates, just use your mouse or something till then. Sorry :(

Re: key binding?
from console window.

] unbind a
] bind a
"a" = ""
] bind a +left
] bind a
"a" = "+left"

and still does not work.

Who is "They"? Ritual?

Can you give me a link to the official tech support forum for SE1?

as i said this is very annoying.

Re: key binding?
In v1.3, there is a bug where +turnleft and +turnright do not work if the mouse is enabled.

This will be corrected in v1.4.
