Controller sensitivity WAY too low!
Got the game during the sale, can not stand such a slow sensitivity! It takes over 3 seconds to turn around, and the up/down is even worste (why the hell is X and Y sens even differant!?), useless in trying to shoot. Generally I play at much higher sensitivity, like 4 times the fastest you can set in the game.
Is there an easy fix to this? I'm assuming I can edit a config file, I'll try that later, tired of fighting a controller atm.

On a positive note, I like the aim assist adjustability....I'll also note I hate aim assist, and I play with an xbox controller on all games I possibly can- odd I know.

I found this in the "user.cfg" file in C:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\4A Games\Metro LL\110000103114d77
(The 110000103114d77 will probably be different for you, but at least you know what to look for lol.)


joy_boost_max 2.70000005
joy_boost_speed 2.
joy_sens_adhersion 0.69999999
joy_sens_aiming_x 0.30000001
joy_sens_frict 0.69999999
joy_sens_linear 1.
joy_sens_x 0.40000001
joy_sens_y_scale 0.89999998
joy_slowdown 0.30000001
joy_zone_boost 0.99000001
joy_zone_peak 0.89999998
joy_zone_slow 0.17

Find those in the user.cfg and see if adjusting them fixes your sensitivity issue.

Tried adjusting it, even adjusting the preset's below them lines to no success. It just stays the same, it's like it resets everything when I load the game up.
I also tried setting the file to read only, and the file in the main steam folder (same name/settings file). Did not work.
I swear I never have any issues running stuff...but dang lack of options kills me!

I know the feeling lol. I was hoping the whole overwriting of the .cfg would have been taken care of by now. What a shame.

Ok so I found a few things that may or may not be helpful for you... So bear with me.
First url is for how to setup a wired controller. (I know, you know how to install it, but it has the link to the software that you may or may not have.. So here it is lol.)

This second link is for how to configure your Xbox controller for Windows.
It seems to pretty much take you through how to do the calibration stuff.

I know you might have tried this stuff before, but it's worth a post lol.

Yea, I have the drivers/controller calibrated. I play all my games that's possible with a controller, even Guild Wars 2 lol. I'm familiar with config files, just usually when you change something in them it stays that way, especially when you put it on "read only" and even lock it (locking it the game just resets everything...useless).
Any info is appreciated but this game is unplayable due to this 1 freaking limitation. If the X and Y was the same it would be bareable at least to play through once, but as is it just feels like i'm fighting the controller instead of the playing the game.

Yeah, I just figured it was worth a post. As I said, I know you might have tried it before lol. There's also the other users who may have the same problem. But most of all, I was hoping you might find something to help adjust the sensitivity of the controller through those methods. (I found something on my laptop while using the controller and it let me adjust the sensitivity, I just don't remember what.) What an odd issue though, you would think that adjusting it in-game would be enough.

What I meant with the .cfg file is that since the launch of Metro:LL it has had a habit of replacing the user.cfg if it has been edited outside of the game. I figured by now it would have been fixed lol.

If I come across anything I'll be sure to post!

Same issue on my end. I use an XBOX 360 wired controller w/sensitivity cranked up to max. It turns very slow. If anyone out there finds a solution, let us know
