To anyone having issues with controllers

If your issue was that you can't move the cursor with a controller, try changing the x and y axes to the right stick. By default, for some reason, they seem to be set to the left stick, which doesn't seem to work. Just go to the last page in the control settings and click on each and then move the r...

Re: Trine on PS2

ok.. but does trine support a ps2 gamepad? Of that I'm not sure. I assumed the adapter converts it to a fairly generic "gaming device" but I really have no idea. If it does, I will probably buy one 'cause I ain't having much luck with my logitech one. Though someone did mention fiddling w...

Ah, the omnipresent dilemma of difficulty settings.

Re: Why does the mage's box stop moving when spell is over?

He won't destroy it if you place an existing box in his way [i.e. not a summoned box], as they are extremely conscientious skeletons and don't like wanton destruction. They will happily smash up the creations of a feeble wizzard, however, as you point out. I should have been more clear / correct the...

The game has the intro + the tutorial videos, and then the final ending cutscene. Playing the Steam demo I encountered no final cutscene. When I finish the demo it cuts straight back to main menu. Also, if you look straight up and block with the knight, then as the mouse switches from being slightl...

Re: Why does the mage's box stop moving when spell is over?

Actually, I've found that apart from the full-on onslaughts, the mage is quite competent at box-smashing skeletons. Obviously the best way is drawing a box over and in front of approaching guys with perfect timing, but placing one and letting him climb on it before lifting it up and away works. He c...

Re: Wow, Trine is selling well it seems

Trine is at 5th place in weekly sales on Steam! That's pretty good. Only being beaten by Arma 2, Dawn of Discovery, L4D, and Overlord II. Does Frozenbyte get the money from the sales when the game comes out, or now? Either way I'm thinking their local pubs must be doing pretty well for themselves r...

I agree wholeheartedly, Lauri.

I just bought the game on Steam, and completed it in about 5 minutes.
Not impressed with the length at all.

I must confess that I have also had serious issues getting a controller to work. The controller in question is a Logitech RumblePad 2, and the specific issue is with player 2 (the controller player) has no way of controlling his cursor. This renders the Thief's grappling hook / bow fairly redundant,...
