OP  10/07/07 6:14:04 PM#1

 You have to right click to get everywhere.  The controls SUCK SO BADLY.  IS there a way to convert the controls over to wsd or even arrow buttons?

How do you know the controls suck, no one and I mean no one has seen the current build.  Only build they have shown to anyone is over a year old.

Let's wait until we get more information before jumping off the cliff with a whine.

You seem to be confusing Shadowbane with Darkfall..... the former has been released for many years now (4+) and many folks attribute the unfriendly controls as a contributer to its eventual failure. I never really had much of a problem myself with them

The controls are similar to Ultima Online.  That is where the players.... err developers.. came from that made this game.  Trammel killed UO so someone tried to make a good game.  They came close, but no cigar.

This is still the best (and only good) RPG on the market today.  Let the player have control.  Play to crush.  Want to Quest?  BANE ME!

Here's a thought...play one of the other bazillion f2p mmos out there, and guess what? All of them have a point and click move system, except for a few like Anarchy Online, or Archlord, with the latter giving you the option of using either control style (wasd or point and click).

Alot of things in shadowbane bothered me. The controls were never one of them. Once you get used to its actually easier than wasd or arrows.

 

Thing that buged me the most about shadowbane is if this game is so hardcore PVP then why did everyone seem to spend 90% of their time in game leveling / farming gold / trading and trying to get items.

 

This doesnt even touch on the cheating / duping / exploiting / macroing / grand-father characters / GM items / AZN zergs etc.... oh and everyone's favorite SB.exe crashes.

Please, its not that bad, its just different. Almost unnoticable after an hour of playing.

After playing a lot of SB, I was surprised when I returned to Guildwars and thought to myself "omg GW controlz sux" which is not true obviously.

Give this game a chance, its really the best there is on the market

Played (from best to worst): Shadowbane, Guild Wars, Shayia, Age of Conan, Warhammer, Runes of Magic, Rappelz, Archlord, Knight online, King of Kings, Kal online, Last chaos

No actually the OP is right.  I also quit because the movement control and camera controls sucked.

Different strokes for different folks. The flexibility of the movement and camera system in Shadowbane had a lot of advantages for PvP. Simple WASD movement is better for simple people playing simple MMORPGs.

As said the game sucked because of technical and cheating issues not because of the movement system.

The controls don't suck - they do take a bit of getting used to, but once you are familiar with them - they are actually quite good.

You can change them to WSAD by doing the following:

ingame press esc goto settings click hotkeys and the first tab is all the movement stuff assign the keys you would like there. HOWEVER you still have to right click to move (which is really good if you played the game you will see).

lol...

I have played the game for almost 4 years, trust me you get used to the controls fast. and they work well.

I seriously urge you to give it another go, once you get over the controls you will see that the game is wicked fun!

Point and click movement isn't the problem you are making it out to be.  The problem is that the documentation for the game is extremely outdated compared to the current build.  All the good players that kept decide guides on different builds and why they are that way are also dated.  There just isn't a real well to plan out your characters anymore because of the said lack of documentation.  The creaters of the game are long gone.  Wolfpack Studios is no more.  The game is generating ad revenue for Ubisoft in F2P mode.  It is sad, but no one that owns Shadowbane cares about it any longer so there is no support for the game.  It is, and has been for a long time now, on life support.

 

Fear not fanbois, we are not trolls, let's take off your tin foil hat and learn what VAPORWARE is:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vaporware

"Vaporware is a term used to describe a software or hardware product that is announced by a developer well in advance of release, but which then fails to emerge after having well exceeded the period of development time that was initially claimed or would normally be expected for the development cycle of a similar product."

SB is not a pretty game. It has an outdated, archaic engine, it does crash (although not nearly as often as people would believe...I haven't "sb'ed" in forever *touch wood*) and Wolfpack is indeed gone.

However, Wolfpack was replaced by Stray Bullet Games.

This game is still receiving updates (one just went live maybe two weeks ago).

The people who still play are dedicated to the game and the server(s) they play on.

And when you log in to SB you do so not to watch pretty graphics but to tear other peoples' stuff down. This is by far the best game in terms of allowing the player to retaliate against his/her enemy. Carebears need not apply but if you truly want to log in and fight virtually anyone, anywhere at any time then Shadowbane is most definitely for you.

As far as outdated guides go...drop a few notes on Ubi's Shadowbane boards. There are still a great number of active players who are honestly there to help people out. We do so in order to have more people to fight and a good fight is always better than a bad one.

dunno if this is considered necro since no one posts here much at all.  But my issue isnt really with controls (I can live and learn with that), but its my monitors resolution:  I use 1400 x 900 due to my wide screen monitor and in game all my menus/windows are in the upper left corner area right in my field of view.  Is there an option to let you drag them because I couldn't find one to do so, I am only able to expand a few of them.

Ctrl-LeftClick and drag (I believe anywhere within the window you are moving). The UI is completely customizable and there are even a few skins out there (Vengeance and Mad Sage come to mind.)

Morloch Wiki used to have links to those but I noticed that whoever is running that Wiki has removed a number of links due to bot attacks.

If for some reason this doesn't work for you, post here and let me know what precisely you did and I'm sure we can come up with a solution.
