Now before I go off and thoroughly enjoy this game and forget what it was i wanted to rant about.

now i bought this game, ran home, installed it, pressed the little button on my x360 controller, loaded up the game, started to play and..

i'm there trying to learn the controls.. it says press button 5 to run away from these hot virgins, im like wtf RUN AWAY from these virgins.. hey wait a minute wtf is BUTTON 5??

I've got a X, A, B, Y, two analogue sticks, d-pad, back, start, xconnect, left button, left trigger, right button, right trigger..

what? no button 5???

cmon, u didnt release it on x360 with this backdoor port garbage.

look i was really annoyed at being shoved into buying this bs expensive proprietary xbox360 controller for my PC (i dont own an xbox360 btw), when all of the FOUR logitech gamepads i had worked fine.. until certain games started being xbox360 only.. scumbag leecher microsoft.
Please note: my x360 controller cost me over 4x the cost (inc the charger and wireless adapter) of each of my logitech pads.

i thought, oh well, i can live with that, now with xbox360 being 'the new universal control experience' or some spewtom that sounded as cheesy as that.. we can at least have some decent support... BUH BOW... wrong..

so.. in a while i wont care, cas i'll remember all the buttons.. but for the next few hours i'm gonna curse your name..

Well, first of all: use the search button next time please http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
Secondly, I can see your frustration but if you just learn the controls it will be easy (like you said) so just be patient and then everything will make sense http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Heheh!

I actually enjoyed reading through that.

And I'm not the one to enjoy reading through relatively long opening posts. ^_^

Maybe it was the flare you put to the words... or the fact that a non PS3 user is bashing Microsoft and its 360. xD

Anyway, I hope you enjoy AC, and your time remembering what button 5 is. xD

Who doesn't enjoy some... "chillaxation"... &gt;_&gt;

Anyway, yeah... badly put together post that was. xD
Hard to see through it.

EDIT:
You fixed it... quick...

You have to click on "Go" at the top of the screen (but do not collect $200, do not pass "Go", do not buy Mayfair...) and then click on "Personal Zone", then "Profile".

Once it loads, to the right you'll see "Edit Profile", or something like that...

Scroll down and edit whatever you want.

is button 5 not pressing the analoug stick as that is a button on the playstation controllers.

*idea*

Pressing all the buttons on the controller would help you fugure out what button 5 is...

yeah.. as do all my logitech pads.. but im just guessing at the mo' but as the buttons in the game go button 0 - 7... im guessing button 0 = button 1, button 2 = button 3 and so on...
<span class="ev_code_BLUE">but i prefer my wireless x360 controller over the logitech ones anyways..</span>

but yeah. i got it now.. it's all second nature... although a lot of the time in the fight scenes i find myself pressing the blend button instead of the stab button... doesnt help so much..

but it gets even more confusing.. with the actions listed in 4 buttons on the top right of u HUD all the buttons there dont match the default xbox360 controller configuration.. you have to figure out which button matches which then reconfigure them all for them to make any sense..

when you went on control options, after you click controller did you click the side arrows until it says x-box 360 controller for windows?
