Hi.

 

I recently got GTA 4 while it was on some sale on steam, and it's the first time I've played a new GTA game since San Andreas. Everything works perfectly, except for the sh*tty controls: when I walk forward and use the mouse to turn 90° left or right, the view doesn't just stay where I aimed at but moves back a little toward the direction I was previously facing. Same thing happens when I run, only much more noticeable. My guess is that this behaviour is intended, for those playing with a controller pad or on consoles or something... for me, it pretty much ruins the game. How am I supposed to aim like that, or run after someone?

Also, why does the camera turn when I strafe? Is that intended too? Can I fix it?

 

Comments and help appreciated.

Thanks

 Play around the the settings or get a gamepad such as the Xbox 360/Logitech.

Already tried tweaking the settings, but to no avail.

And I don't see why I should buy a gamepad just because one game is poorly written in pc terms just to please console players.

The whole thing is ridiculous, impossible to precisely aim at anything.

You can clearly see this is some sh*tty console port, they didn't even try doing something decent with the mouse controls, they just ported the stick controls over and added mouse support to it.

i like the controls pretty much and have played all the GTA iterations. i think its more you guys' playing style. its not a way to fix it far as i know, maybe there's a mod that changes it? but that is for the forum in YELLOW

The hell are you talking about, playing style? I play it like I play any shooter, aim for the head and don't waste bullets.

 

Heh, it's a bit better when you turn down the mouse sensitivity by a lot.

Still, it's pretty bad for a PC game when the mouse just skips like 100 pixels.

You can do nothing about this except tweaking Mouse Sensitivity. GTA IV should have been awared 'worst coded game of the year 2008'. But story is nice though.
