AVP 2 Controls Help??
Aug 5th, 2016 at 1:16am
Print Post Print Post  
Hello; so I've recently wanted to play this game again, I have the original discs and the game always installs correctly...

BUT, when I actually start the game up and go to play one of the singleplayer campaigns, none of my controls work! When I go into the control options, they're all unassigned, and reassigning them doesn't work either. I'm at my wit's end trying to figure this out..

My mouse buttons are the only things that seem to work, along with the spacebar during the opening movies. I have no idea what's going on, and ANY help would be appreciated.

I'm on Windows 10, MSi laptop, Nvidia GTX970M if it matters...if in need of any other specs, let me know, I'll gladly post.

Hi,

The 'all unassigned' is an old common avp2 error.... it's happen to me myself several years back.

Check List

- Is Your game updated to 1.0.9.6
- GPU Drivers updated
- What type of keyboard? PS/2 USB?
- Try a reinstall.
- Let us know.


And Welcome.

Wink

you just installed AVP2 without primal hunt expansion?
game its installed on default root?
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Fox\Aliens vs. Predator 2\AVP2.exe"
or you have changed folder during setup?
in what language are your original AVP2 discs?
which language is your operating system?
the controls result all not assigned or <unassigned>?
the button restores default is not selectable?
time ago a guy on linux had the same problem  look here

I hope it can be useful.

Ah, thanks for the responses.

As for this checklist, yes, game is updated to 1.9.0.6
All drivers updated
I have a laptop, SteelSeries PS/2 keyboard
I have tried a reinstall multiple times.. Always the default folders and all that.

I don't actually have the expansion pack, just the original two discs, and they're both english.
OS is english, and yes, controls are all this ''<unassigned>''.
The restore default controls button changes nothing, unless I try to set them myself; in that case, it changes my controls back to <unassigned>.

I actually looked at the linux post several times, tried to change my autoexec and everything. Strange thing though, I actually got the controls working ONCE, but only the movement controls, WASD. Nothing else could be set. :/

even if you have the original CDs try downloading
this is the full english version also include primal hunt (iso +cracks)

http://www.avpunknown.com/avp2files/avp2game/avp2_avp2ph_aio.zip

this is the full italian version (mdx no crack)

https://mega.nz/#F!14gmzSzZ!bhiSEYXkZ01utHNCIHUBVQ

Try following the instructions by Hurgers.
I know you may seem absurd but the Italian version restores the default controls in some case.

good luck

Alright, the Italian version worked movement wise.
But for some reason I can't wallwalk with the alien? Neither G nor Left Shift works, and trying to set it only changes the setting back to <unassigned>.

Ugh, so finicky lol

I surrender,  Undecided the button "g" on primal hunt is for the self-destruction of the predator when it is low on health.
you have another pc to do a test?

Hang in there!

- What about Primal Hunt?, and make sure you have AvP2 installed in default.

"C:\Program Files\Fox\Aliens vs. Predator 2"

Also,

It could be security on your system.. flagging the AvP2 installation (so it will install but not 100% correct)

That would be my guess.


Keep trying never give up.

Pah, I might have to surrender as well lol
I have an old laptop that I used to play it on (albeit it was laggy), but it still ran and worked perfectly fine otherwise. I suppose it must have something to do with my current one being too...new, if that makes any sense? Not really sure, but I literally can't think of anything else that could possibly be wrong, unless something in the installation is being blocked. I'm not sure how to check if that's the case though..

uninstall game and expansion from the Control Panel,  then delete the folder called  fox
disable your anti-virus and real-time protection and re-install.
if not solve calling an exorcist 

or format this pc!

This is a long shot...


Clean out the reg after you UNINSTALL AVP2


Re-install apply updates.


Then Try.


Let us know

- Good Luck

***Update***

Just had this happen on a new install of avp on a friends laptop, he had the same problem.

We fixed it, by simply clicking 'Restore to defaults'


and it saved the settings.


Try that.
