Syndicate for PC.

So... i was looking forward to getting Syndicate for PC but came across this.. []


I bought and downloaded the game Syndicate (yes the 2012 version not the one in the 80s) from Origin about an hour ago.

Everything was fine until the game starts. The interface and keys are ALL in xbox controller style, ie. press (X) or (Y) or that controller trigger button etc but this is a PC game that i purchased which is now running on my PC!!

went to settings but no button or option to disable the xbox controller (which i don have!).

this is a FPS and why is it forcing me to use a xbox controller?!

If i wana play with a controller i would have bought a xbox version of the game and not download the PC version from Origin.

Anyone else having the same problem with the PC version?

Help please!!!

Thanks!!! "

Kinda got worried since i wanted to get it and wasnt looking forward to using a xbox controller so i went on EA live customer support... bad idea... CUSTOMER SUPPORT IS A JOKE.

So what im asking is, does anybody here got Syndicate for PC? and is the controls screwed up?
Im posting here as this is a General and Off-topic discussion board and it seems like EA doesnt have a Syndicate forum.

Any information regarding this matter is much appreciated since if there is a screw up for PC, then im not going to get it.

Yep, same for myself and my brother. You can still play on keyboard/mouse though. Sadly, this is the worst thing about this game so far.

A few of the controls we've figured out:
X = F (pickup new weapons, and reload ammo at ammo crates)
A = Spacebar/Enter depending on context.
B = Right mouse button, mostly.
the Dart chip = Q
Breach = E

I'm enjoying it so far, and the co-op is mad fun + somewhat challenging, which is awesome!

Send me a note about your in game name and I'll shoot you a friend request.

I have no idea if they'll fix that, ask the devs. It's annoying, yes; but hardly game breaking. It just means it's a port (but besides the controls a pretty good one so far).

Same thing has happened to me. I was online with tech support and all they could advise me was to delete any previous installation of a game controller on my pc. I did that and it still didn't work. I hope that if enough of us complain that they will fix this because I know that there are a lot of us who do not want to use a controller. If I did I would have purchased this for my XBOX!!

I just again to EA support and they say they are aware of the problem and a fix is being worked on. Unfortunately, they say it won't be any time soon since most of the support people are currently working on the Mass Effect 3 release and that the fix could be a long time away.

If they actually released the game when it is finished would be quite good. Why the hell do they keep doing this? same thing with battlefield 3 shit load of problems, its so obvious they're just rushing out every decent game and selling it as a half-finished product.

this is quite b.s

thanks for ruining another supposedly great game. Im sure you guys will screw up ME3 aswell, CUZ YOU STILL HAVENT FIXED BF3 YET.

screw EA and their customer support.

Guys, seriously. This game is playable without a controller. Just learn what the keys do. Heck, I even told you what a bunch of them do. Sheesh. It's a fun game. It isn't broken.

hmm im getting a problem where the right mouse button stops working properly aswell as the "D" key while playing, it started off fine but then all of a sudden i press right strafe which is D key and it just steps once, same with my move forward which is my right mouse button, and i just cant seem to think why it would all of a sudden start doing this?

So now the game doesnt work for me due to controller problems as described above.

Anyone else had this problem yet ?

It's lame company's that port games over to the PC and doesn't even bother changing the controls for the PC user's.

There is a fix! Grab this file and overwrite in Syndicate/System/Win32. It asks to overwrite say yes. Make a copy of the old file for safety. Grab the fixed DLL here: []
