Controller Mod?
I recently bought this game and i am loving it so far, only one problem. I suck at using keyboard and mouse controls. I am mostly a console gamer and enjoy the comfort of a controller when i play im starting to get older and using the WASD controls on the keyboard is uncomfortable for me to use and im not very good or agile with my movements in games when i have to use the keyboard.

The results of this is that i cant doge the stupid spiders well enough to make it past them ive been trying for two days now restarted my game twice to try to make my party better but i always die when i get the the large group of spiders cause my group wants to miss them five or six times in a row and i cant kill them before getting cornered because i suck at using the keyboard.

So are there any mods that let you use a controller and are they good?
Thanks in advance to anyone who answers this. :)

Basically you'd need a mapping software that transfers controller buttons and sticks into keyboard and mouse input like ControllerMate or Xpadder to do this.

The main problem I see is that you need to be able to click on each party member's hands, plus spell-casting runes, and I'm not sure how easy that would be with a gamepad. In case you want to try getting used to the mouse, most spiders can be defeated by luring them to a door, hitting them once and closing the door, then opening, hitting, closing, rinse, repeat.

Failing that, Freebird has is a mod (based on Komag's excellent recreation of the game) that has replaced all the spiders with other monsters, and removed the eggs completely. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=222888669&searchtext=

Good luck, and I hope this helps!

thanks for the replies guys. :)

Im going to rebuild my party one more time to see if i can get better accuracy i can handle the keyboard controls well enough when theres just one spider but when there is a group of them my party dosnt do enough damage or have good enough accuracy to finish them off before they corner me cause i hit the wrong button and turn instead of strafe.

Ah!

In that case a little more training (= game time) while learning to attract less monsters (= more caution play) should do

Yeah its just a really nasty difficulty spike right with the spiders being able to poison you and dodge everything but the mages spells

If it helps any, level 3 has a secret serpent bracer. Google "Grimrock serpent bracer" and check out the video to find it. It should help with you getting poisoned all the time,

Thanks i had found those already guy wearing them still gets poisoned in one hit :shrug: spiders are just too strong in my opinion. was having a blast with this up to till this point feels a little unfair that theres that many spiders and their that strong WITH poison to add insult to injury.

Dont get me wrong still love the game and having fun with i just feel that this section is balanced unfairly for the level your guys are. Even with good kiting and dodging your party is still going to take too much damage from a single hit or poison for the large amount of spiders in the level.

Now that ive complained alot about i am happy to report that im almost through the level after many trips back to the save crystal from spiders popping out of areas id already cleared

Nice work! It will get easier as you gain levels. Pretty soon you'll be swatting those spiders like they're nothing.

Now...ice lizards on the other hand... ;-)
