What's on your mind?
Anyone know why I can't change button layout in this game? On the first night of playing Control I changed the layout to PS Buttons since I'm using a DualShock4. I have made no changes to my computer, but today no matter what I do I only get Xbox buttons. Every time I exit Options and go back in it's gone back to Xbox. Is this a bug? Tried restarting steam and my computer several times with no luck. I am so sick of this bull, and I was so happy I finally found a game where you could choose the layout you wanted. Oh, and I also get on average 20fps less than yesterday too. What is going on...?
As I have been impatiently waiting for the DLC to come out on Xbox, I've been running around looking at pretty much any piece of paper or white board that I can come across, and really putting photo mode through its paces.
Today I decided to go and take a look at what our good buddy Arish was working on, and noticed the title on this map appears to be Department of Unhuman (possibly Inhuman) Affairs. I did a quick google search, and found one thing. A twitter post from someone who was part of the ARG who posted a picture of a letter that got that was heavily redacted. Someone responded with "Department of Unhuman Affairs". Is that just what they call it the Oldest House? Is it another department? Did I miss something obvious?
The map seems to be of the research sector, with bits added on around luck and probability, synchronicity, and the hypnosis lab.
If it is something we don't know anything about it, what are your thoughts on what it could be? Aliens? That Bigfoot monster that the Threshold Kids were talking about? Nessie? My vote is for unicorns, because why not?
Does anyone know what city Ordinary is based on in real life? My best guess is Waukesha because of its haunted past and frequent reports of ghost sightings. Some have even reported figures surrounded by darkness which really makes me think of the enemies in Alan Wake. It seems like this city may be the inspiration for the location of Ordinary, but I have no idea if this is accurate because I have not been able to find anyone else talking about this. I am just curious because I live in Wisconsin and want to know why they chose to have two of the AWE's in the game take place in this state. I could just be overthinking this because little things like this intrigue me, but I don't think they would make up the location 100%.
I always Melee them off balconies but they always despawn. Even knocked a Hiss Ranger off the fourth floor to the first floor in Panoption, but it despawned before I got results.
What Is the firebreak? If you don’t know what I’m talking about it is the long black canyon that has a white bridge going through from one side to another, and there are a lot of bridges. There are ones at the panopticon, ashtray maze, and black rock lab entrances. I have no idea and I had bothered me for so long. Are they naturally occurring or did the bureau put them there or are they using another OoP to put them in place? The doors aren’t actually all next to each other in the real world, but once you enter the weird, rock doors that go up, and you look to the side, they are all there, one right after the other. Maybe the firewall is it’s own threshold, or maybe another dimension. And I wish that they expanded more on Ahti. He was cool and I know that he’s a Paranarural entity, but why does he talk like that? Is he friendly? Where is he from? How did he get here? Why is he here? And what did he mean by vacation spot when talking about the formation. Maybe he’s actually a being of such paranarural mass and when he can to our world, when he took human form, he could not act human cause that is not in his nature, or maybe taking human form fried his interdimensional brain, leaving him an interdenominational vegetable. And one last thing, I think he controls the Ashtray OoP because the effects of one OoP don’t affect the effects of another OoP, so the cassette player can’t lead people through the maze by itself. It must’ve been Ahti guiding Jesse through the maze himself, because he controls the Ashtray. Unless Ahti really is powerful enough that he made the cassette tape into an altered item. These are just some thoughts that I had at 4 in the morning. Let me know what you think if you actually read any of this.
Started the laborious process of uploading screenshots of the missing lore entires we needed — Took the screenshots from my PS4, cropped them, and have been writing out each entry with correct formatting.
I hope this helps everyone who was wanting to view them. Only thing I can't seem to get are the Multimedia messages like video and audio. Not sure how to do that!
Eventually, I might start adding The Foundation DLC entries. I've already completed the list on the collectibles page with update amounts for each segment (Research, Case Files, etc).
Anyone want to help? :)
I know its not really important but what the heck is in the glass jar in the directors office. It moves and theres a bunch of residue in the bottom of it almost indicating its alive. If anyone can figure it out tell me what you think it is
