Could you add an "always face cursor" option?
I really want to like this game, but the whole facing mechanic with mouse/keyboard controls is ruining the game for me.

Take Wizard of Legend, for example. In that game no matter what direction you've been moving, when you execute a melee attack or a ranged attack, it's always directed at the cursor so you always know which way you're going to attack.

In Crosscode the melee attack direction is always based on the character's most recent movement facing, but shooting is always in the direction of the cursor. You attacks could go in two different directions and having to make the tiny movement adjustment to aim you melee makes the controls way more awkward than they need to be in the middle of high-speed combat.

Please add an option so melee attacks using the keyboard shortcut always face the cursor. Thanks in advance!

Nice idea, i think it would be better this way. I also would like to change the cursor color. Sometimes i get confused about the cursor location when fighting lots of enemies because its white. I think it could be better if the color was something like yellow or blue

"always face cursor" is something we attempted in the very beginning and it very quickly turned out to be a very bad idea.

The reason is that your melee attacks in CrossCode only trigger when you click close to the player. If in addition to the close range you also have the direction to be correctly it's very difficult to perform melee attacks the way you want.

However, things are different when using the Keyboard hotkey for melee attacks. We might add an option that the keyboard-hotkey melee attacks (and only those) automatically align with the mouse cursor direction.
That would be great! However, could you make the option ALSO apply to SP melee attacks?

That's the main reason I made the request. I've gotten as far as the first duel and it's been maddening that half the time I'm right next to the guy, he's open and vulnerable, I trigger the SP attack, but it misses him completely because even though my cursor's over him, the buzzsaw points the wrong way.

It's kind of a game-killer for me at the moment.

You are aware that you can also adapt the Combat Art (SP-Attack) direction via keyboard keys while you charge, right?

This is not really a game-killer and rather you having to adapt to a different control scheme.

I believe that would be a good idea given I use the melee hotkey exclusively.

I also wish it were possible to configure the right mouse button to only guard, and not dodge when moving (this has cost me a few tries during the Bergen Village cave trials)
