skyrim question

nethrillnethrill Member Posts: 122

Looks like a cool game but I tried oblivion and hated/couldn't get used to the wasd controlled format and I understand skyrim is designed the same way. Is there a setting where your character can be controlled like a standard mmorpg, more mouse oriented or is it strictly wasd?

    WSAD is the standard control in mmo's.

    you can use an xbox 360 controller, if that suits you better.

    This, you don't even have to program it or set it up. It works right after connecting it.

     Not sure I follow.

     How was Oblivion controlled any different than a standard mmo? You use WASD for movement, but you look around/turn with your mouse in both.

     Not trying to sound rude here, but unless you use the click to move style of movement in MMO's they are pretty much the same control scheme (minus a left or right click to enter free-look mode in an mmo).

     If that's the case then no you can't change Skyrim to that sort of control.

     You can do the same with a PS3 controller too, but need to run it through an emulator. DS3 tools works great, it can emulate a bunch of controller types too (like the 360 for example).

    Or you could just get an Air-Flo or something....basically a PS3 controller, but PC native, and has cool fans to keep your hands from getting sweaty.

    I use one with all my emulators, except of course for Dolphin, when I use a Wii remote via bluetooth.

    I use arrows and my mouse not wasd on my mmo's. Oblivion always gave me a headache and made me feel dizzy like it's always floating you forward and it felt harder to controll than say wow or lotr etc. I don't want another game like oblivion if that's how skyrim is designed. Thanks

    hmmm, i think most mmo's are usually WASD by default unless they are click to move.

    In any case, the design is similiar to Oblvion so it might not be for you.

    Having said that, it's "slighly" different as your camera is more over the shoulder. Not sure if that matters.

    if its just a matter of using arrows over wasd then you can always just re-map the controls in settings. However, if you are after point-and-click movements style and you want arrows to control camera then no, it won't work.
