Camera Controls Patched?
Guys I wanted to check if the camera control issues for BG&EHD on the XBOX 360 has been patched? Can someone confirm this?
Because on my PS3 version the settings menu, accessed via help & options, allows the X(Horizontal) axis control to be changed in, "Camera control" to normal or reversed (inverted), and Y(Vertical) axis control to be changed in, "Look mode" to normal or reversed (inverted). I've tried them and they work.
I'd have to check, but as far as I remember those two settings are different from one another. Camera control (or lookup, I'm not entirely sure which does what) changes Jade's own camera while Look mode changes the third-person camera. The problem was that, while inverting the camera control does work correctly (only changing Y-axis), the Look mode was bugged and choosing reversed there actually inverted the X-axis as well. So for it to work, the third-person camera would need to be able to work this way:
thumbstick up = camera down
thumbstick down = camera up
thumbstick left= camera left
thumbstick right = camera right
I'd be very surprised that they actually fixed it, considering that Ubisoft have shown to not care one bit about the problem. Why fix it now without even telling us? And from what you're describing, it can't really be fixed as they'd have to include additional menu options so that they don't mess up settings that people are currently using.

I was confused about which camera the guys were on about, Jade's camera remains glitched.
yeah, i got confused too at first. it's not really affected me, since i was just use to playing the way it is when i played it on the first xbox. oh well.
Yeah, i don't quite understand whats glitched? I hear people are pretty ticked off about this? But to me it just feels like the same ol' BGE? What exactly is glitched about the camera controls? The only thing which has bothered my is the control changes on YO! Pearl, and even that hasn't affect me that much.
I fail to see what's so difficult to understand about this problem:
Selecting reversed controls also inverts the X-axis when it should only invert the Y-axis like the other 99% of the games do. Inversed controls are supposed to be the same as the controls in flight simulators, where up is down and down is up. While the controls are correctly implemented for Jade's own camera, they're bugged for the actual in-game camera. You obviously won't notice this if you play with standard controls, but for the 25% of people to use inverted controls in their game it's a nightmare to control as they're asked to unlearn a control scheme they use in all their other games.z
