    Hey guys,

    I found a way to play analog fighting on mouse and keyboard which imo is the way it should be played :). This is from the Steam forums "Lets mod Dead Island"! Although I've made the process easy and uploaded the files so all you need to do is copy and paste.

    Anyhow here are the instructions:

    1. Locate C:\Users\Username\MyDocuments\DeadIsland\Out\Data (If you don't have a data folder simply create one.)
    2. Download this file I've uploaded and paste it into the directory from Step 1.
    3. Make the file read only not sure if necessary but do it anyway won't hurt.
    4. Start the game and then set your controls to XBOX 360 > Fighting Type: Analog

    Warning: You will need to delete the input files if you wish to use your gamepad again.

    You should be able to experience analog fighting with this, hold left click to prepare your weapon and then move your mouse to your desired axis of swinging. Hope this makes the game a little better for you guys.

    I'm not sure if this is a mod or not, but I need it, think I would be entertained for hours.

    HAHA that is awesome, he definitely tweaked the gravity settings and probably tweaked the force and speed of his punches, I want it.

    Reminds me of The One with Jet Li, of course the sound reminds me of Bruce Lee. Either way it's hilarious.

    It's based on Fist Of The Northstar. Hence the FOTNS sound effects ;)

    Good to hear you got it sorted :).. But still it should not of stopped you from playing a game. Maybe if you had put it in offline mode you would of been able play it as seen as you had it installed ?.

    same here too. It's like going backwards in time watching the crap.

    It stated, that it couldn't connect to "cloud" so it couldn't use the "desired" settings for the game.. Asked me if I wanted to "continue" and I did. To which it then showed what I posted... It was strange but even a few people on Steam's Forums had that issue.. I thought at first it was due to myself buying the game off a website and useing the key to "download" it..

    I'll definitely be getting this game late October / early November. Not getting it now because I want to play it on my desktop.

    Is it true that it's open sandbox, and more similar to Fallout 3 than to Left 4 Dead?

    Yep, make sure to check every one, one of the bestter sources for cash. But, once you've got the cash from there, very rarely does it reappear.

    I dislike the art style of anime as well, so most of the games. I'm a graphic designer, I like things to feel natural, font choices are usually horrible and don't fit the game titles, sounds and emotion of the characters is far too extreme, size of weapons samething, and it's the smallest people wielding the largest things. I dislike anime basically from A to Z you could say :p

    Like said, it's a bit closer to Borderlands. It's decently open, but it leads you in a pretty good path. Though if you chose to do side quests, you can roam around pretty well. And there is a modding community growing for it as well.
