Since Uncharted 3′s recent launch, some players have been experiencing problems regarding Uncharted 3′s aiming.
Everyone should have an equal experience with the game, sad to see some gamers experiencing such problems
nah hes just gotta adapt and l2p tbh :)
If the multiplayer seems to work fine while single player has a bit of lag problem, obviously adapting won't be easy if he's switching back and forth between the modes. Problem is that there's lag and it needs to be fixed, not ignored.
Increase camera sensitivity?
To be honest, I didn't really notice it until I watched this video. I just beat the game today, and when I think back, I can admit to there being a little bit of lag. I almost went into options and adjusted sensitivity, thinking that was the problem, but it wasn't such a big deal that it prevented me from fairly easily beating U3 on "Hard".
@hakis86 That's what I thought too. Increase the camera/aim sensitivity. Anyway, I just beat the game last night and no one that I know have had any problems at all. Not sure it was THAT noticeable, unless someone takes the time to look for these issues. @inveni0 - Exactly.
150 milliseconds is a little high but not exactly excessive....when playing games whose framerates dip below 25FPS and are inconsistent then i could see it being a problem, the lag would be well over 150ms and it might be hard to adjust to that. Assuming UC3 is consistent, i believe this lag 'problem' is rather overstated... Its not so much lag, its the directional on the stick some people might have issues with. Maybe they will patch it, but personally i didn't find it game breaking
TBH I don't feel a difference from Uncharted 2's aiming system to Uncharted 3's aiming.... Hrmmmmmm.
He could have easily changed the mode on his TV for uncharted 3 to be one of those modes that do post processing which adds lag.
there is a lag in the MP as well. i haven't played MP for about 2 weeks, so maybe they fixed it. but it was definitely there. i must say, i' surprised i don't see many apologists saying "it's to give a weighty feel" like they did with killzone.
@common sense yea i havent played the mp in months possibly years ... I got use to the aiming ... like i do with every shooter People just love to complain if you ask me.
I notice this alot on console games. Wireless technology is never good for gaming, thats I play PC :)
If Skyrim weren't coming out only 10 days later, I would've bought this one day one. It looks like waiting a little bit for a possible patch may be the way to go though. Either way, UC3 will be another masterpiece like its predecessors. @Rifkens - When you have little kids that could possibly trip over a cord...wireless technology is great! Then again, I'd take wireless over wired any day, with or without kids.
I just got my platinum today. Beat it on crushing with mostly headshots. I never realized that this game had any issues. This seems like a lame attempt at trying to downplay this beat of a game. Been playing multiplayer all day and man oh man...I can't get enough! And I been beasting...this aiming thing isn't a problem...my sniper/headshot count on multiplayer can prove it :)
Maybe Gamersmint's friend (totally reliable source that would never attempt to exaggerate anything negative regarding the ps3) should try PUNCHING the control sticks.
of the controller effect lag? Like when the battery is running low it isnt as responsive in communicating to the system.
Hardly. Also why the hell is shooting mapped to the shoulder buttons???.
It's always been that way. Have you not played Uncharted 1 or 2? I don't know about you, but I shoot using my index finger. Trigger is only useful for racing games.
I noticed something a little off, but im getting along fine with the game. It's not really ruin my experience as im loving the game.
How much do you wanna bet that this dude doesnt have is tv set to a game mode of some sort to reduce the input lag cuz, I have a 70 inch sharp led tv, and if my ps3 input isnt in game mode, I get the same input lag as this guy.
-Face Palm- some people are so STUPID when it comes to TV's seriously
Witwolfy. I don't get why you say that my tv has input lag unless its in game mode which is annoying as when playing in 3d motion plus is needed and can not be used in game mode.
Dude, 3d motion plus adds post processing for mainly cable and films, that will add input lag to games. Of course game mode is gonna have that option disabled.
Yeah actually one of the minor flaws of U3 include the inaccurate aiming, and also the game has some glitches, like there was one time where "Cutter" did not go to open the door with "Sully" in a level and I had to restart the checkpoint. The cursor disappeared while I was shooting and it stayed that way until I restarted the checkpoint. Also the game froze on me one time during the ship level. But still, I have to admit that this is the most Epic adventure game I have played so far.
so it wasn't just be experiencing the slow aiming..hope patched soon. The aiming feels sluggish i am at chapter 6 guess use to it already now playing on hard first play through.
it just takes a while to adapt, the controls were stiff at the start now they're fine.
They had to compromise somewhere.
it's all because of the useless 3d feature they added they compromised too much for too little the graphics are worse than the original E3 trailer and the animations are really quriky unlike U2 and there is no motion blur and now all thiese lag issues i hate sony for forcing 3d into their games and if you're skeptical about the graphics being worse than the E3 trailer look at this [scroll down to the fourth post] http://forums.naughtydog.co...
No it isn't, its there in uncharted 2
uh, the top image in post #4 is the released version, not the E3 demo (as confirmed by another poster later on in the thread). so how is that worse, exactly?
I have the game. It doesn't look like that. Don't like 3D? Then don't use the feature. You'll get your better graphics. Also, what do the animations have to do with it?
its naughty dog people, they'll fix it.
Naughty Dog should have patched this up by now
I'm more disappointed by the complete lack of any motion blur, which makes the game in places look less impressive than uncharted 2. Don't understand why it isn't in there, especially when naughty dog tweeted that it was. Hope they patch that in too.
That's really weird, considering the old open beta I played before the Subway one (I didn't play one) had it, and a much higher quality one than Uncharted 2. I really hope it hasn't been intentionally removed, I LOVE the way motion blur looks.
This is for single-player/story mode. Not online multiplayer. This "problem" doesn't exist in MP.
And that makes it alright?
@ironfist92 it doesn't make it right, it makes it less of a problem and a fixable problem. If anyone will patch a gameto perfection it will be naughty dog, they love the franchise just as much if not more than the fans.
Makes what alright? I've never experienced such lag.
Thank heavens, and im sure that all those who bought it for the multiplayer agree.
I've noticed it. I also noticed that when you're aiming for accuracy, it's hard to pinpoint a target because the recticule moves either slowly or over the mark. It's still a great game, hopefully Sony and ND will patch this up.
The issue with the controls is the deadzone and the higher sensitivity bias for the vertical and horizontal directions. Aiming diagonally is much slower in comparison. In uncharted 2 there is no deadzone and sensitivity is consistent in all directions. But it appears now that input lag is also part of the equation.
Glad I'm not the only one, I couldn't put my finger on it but aiming at bad guys just felt off, like something wasn't 100%.
I noticed it too and found the aiming to be a lot harder than it was in Uncharted 1 and 2, but the game was still enjoyable.
Damn, that's pretty horrendous.
3 disagrees? Do you have eyes?
Fanboys don't use eyes, they see with their hearts!
Fanboys don't see at all; they're blinded by ignorance, and a love for something that will never love them back.
What you talking about, my PS3 loves me, it told me so just last night!
We have eyes. And, with them, we can also see that you're being over-the-top by using the word "horrendous". It's a minor struggle to deal with. Sucks it's there, but, it's not even remotely game-breaking.
we all acknowledge theres a problem with the game but wont go as far as to say its horrendous. many games have had and still do have issues with their game and i wouldnt have a go at a perticular company for doing something wrong unless the keep doing the same mistake. the biggest issue is not the fact that theres is lag but the fact that uncharted 2 didnt have lag and uncharted 3 does. this will substract from the gaming experience everyone is used to and thats the real issue.
It's a game largely based around shooting, where the shooting isn't accurate. Considering its pedigree, such a fundamental flaw is pretty bad. Sucks for those who have that problem, and for that matter, the fact that it is only happening to certain people as just weird.
Something like this doesn't just happen to exist randomly for some people. It's either there or it isn't.
I think everybody experienced this from time to time, but then just choose to ignore it, thinking it was probably to be more challenging or something, I remember last night on chapter 14 I experienced this. Didnt bother me much, made it more challenging ;)
No aiming problem my end :-|
Same here, just picked up the game today.
Same here, but makes me wonder why some people are experiencing the presented issue.
I was having a bit of lag or such like that when I first started playing. I just upped the sensitivity and everything was fine.
They are experiencing it because they smack the thumbpad like they are sending Morse code. Who does that?
I noticed the issue right away...just like I did with Killzone 2. I posted about it & got called out as anti-PS3 (which is complete BS check my post history for complete confirmation) and then about a year later Guerrilla Games admitted/confirmed the issue ~ http://www.eurogamer.net/ar... ~ Digital Foundry video that shows Killzone 2 "lag" & other game latency info http://n4g.com/news/566566/... ~ Killzone 2 GG Dev admits lag http://www.destructoid.com/... ~ KZ3 removes lag & GG admits KZ2 had lag I am a pretty die hard PlaySation user/owner. Love the system, have many games and use it quite often. But I will not hold back from speaking the truth about this issue that needs to be addressed (just like I did with KZ2). The situation for me sucks bad...but will that stop me from trying to complete the Trilogy of Platinum's for the series? No. But it will make it that much more difficult and more aggravating than it should be. Here is some proof/confirmation that Naughty Dog DID change the mechanics in 3 compared to the previous ones for some damned reason ~ http://gamergaia.com/ps3/21... Sorry, but they should never have changed it. It was fine the way it was and there were absolutely ZERO complaints about it previously. Yet now there are.
Feels fine to me
Just the same as BF3 on the PS3, Some have aiming problems and others don't strange....
I've yet to encounter these, and hopefully it stays that way!
I find it a tad bit hard to aim accurately. I hop between the PC and PS3 for games and usually I am fine going back to my PS3 but with Uncharted the aiming controls are a bit odd for me.
I'm having this problem too. Another thing I noticed is that I can't change from chapter 1 in chapter select. I have not finished the game yet and am only on chapter 6 so maybe this could be the reason? It may also be that I am not doing it right :P Any help would be appreciated :)
So I see loads of disagrees but no offer of help =/ Or are the disagrees because the aiming in the game is lagging for me? Sorry, I should go out and create a patch for it myself instead of confirming that the problem exists for me... /s
Found out how to work chapter select at last. You have to press X on the picture of chapter 1 and then you can choose other chapters :)
Guess that explains why some encounters in hard were such a bitch for me. Seemed like I could only get 1/10th the headshots I did in uncharted 2
Also did it seem a lot harder to do stealth kills of an entire room in this game, compared to uncharted 2?
