Rather strange problem

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I've got this really strange problem with my GTA San Andreas game.

 

One day, out of the blue, I turn it on and all of my movement is completely inverted. When I push the analog stick 'right' CJ goes 'left'. when I push the stick 'up' he goes 'down'

 

this isn't that bad, but it's really hard to play this way, especially with the way the camera moves.

 

what's REALLY strange about this problem, is that it only happens when I'm on foot. When I get in a car, left is left, up is up etc. none of my other games have any problem.

 

I've tried messing with all of the settings I could think of. I'm really frustrated, and really stumped. I've beaten all of the missions, but would like to get my 100% completion, and this is really pissing me off. suicidal.gif

 

the UTMOST gratitude for ANYONE that can help me out on this.

thanks, I'll try a different controller, but it just doesn't make sense, that it would be inverted on foot, but not in the car.

 

thanks.

I've had the problem where CJ starts walking on his own - try slowly rotating the analogue sticks a few times and see if that fixes it. You might also want to try the same controller with a few other games and see if they have similar problems - it'll help narrow down where the problem lies.

yes ive had this happen when playing Vice City.

 

people have been abusing my controller's the left analogue stick, so it tiltled to the left a little. When i opened the game, tommy was walking to the left, i was like wtf. I shaked the controller around, and it was fine.

 

Btw, somtimes when you learn moves from the gym, CJ will appear running to the right or left. Simply press the jump button to make him get back to normal.

I don't think many people are dumb enough to do what i've done except me of course wink.gif . Anyway you can pick up new controllers cheap enough now i think argos have got an offer on a silver controller for £6 unofficial of course (in britian).
