Issues fixed[edit]

Xbox controls even with no controller attached[edit]

Paranormal auto-detects any controllers/joysticks attached to the system including virtual ones. This could make game uncontrollable and cause camera to spin, menu contains labels for Xbox buttons.
Remove all controllers[citation needed]
  • Remove all physical controllers and joysticks.
  • Disable all virtual controllers
    • These can be included in software for gaming mice and keyboards
    • Disable Unified Remote.
    • Disable virtual adapter for 3DConnexion devices.
  • To disable controller support, edit <path-to-game>\UDKGame\Config\UDKEngine.ini and change AllowJoystickInput=1 to AllowJoystickInput=0. Save your changes.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/246300/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (246300) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
