author's profile notes
This profile is compatible with any standard PC Gamepad, Xbox 360 Controller, Playstation (PS4, PS3, PSX), or any similar devices
Hey guys, thought I'd share this with you all. I'm a big fan of the Oddworld series, and Abe's Oddysee and Abe's Exoddus are probably among my favourite games. I recently bought the pair off Steam, and while the keyboard controls are okay I originally played these on the Playstation, so I'm kind of used to using a controller to play them.

I did a quick search for some Pinnacle profiles for them, and sure enough I'm not the first: user bboyskidz already made a set of profiles for the two games (AO, AE). However when I tested these profiles out the configuration really wasn't anywhere close to the original PSOne's controller layout.

So here's a pair of profiles I made to more closely match the PSOne controller layout for these games. Note that there are some differences to the original; this is because of the way the PC's controls are mapped, so there's not much I can do about that.

These profiles are for the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller. I made them by editing bboyskidz's original AE profile.

Also, make sure to set your controller's thumbstick deadzone to about 35% if you use the thumbsticks to move Abe - a lower deadzone may make the game think down on the thumbstick is actually left and other annoying issues.

Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus
I got the PC version and I tried the current one hosted on this site and noticed the button layout was nothing like the playstation version. It also lacks the "chant" ability key combo and all of his "speaks"

So i made my own for xbox360-type controllers and i went all the way so that this time everything works like it does on playstation

So this means that XYAB on xbox360 controller now does exactly what Square,Triangle,X,Circle does on ps1 version and holding down R1 and moving makes him run and holding down R2 makes him sneak.

X (Square on playstation): Use levers/Action
Y (Triangle on playstation): Hop forward
B (Circle on playstation): (Hold) throw rock, bomb, or meat
A (X on playstation): Duck/Crouch

Holding down L1 or L2 and pressing A or B or X or Y will make him do his "Speaks":

L1 + A = "Wait"
L1 + B = "Angry"
L1 + X = "Follow Me"
L1 + Y = "Hello"

L2 + A = "Short Whistle"
L2 + B = "Fart"
L2 + X = "Laugh"
L2 + Y = "Long Whiste"

Holding L2 + L1 = "Chant"

Holding both shoulder buttons or both triggers will also make him "Chant"

If you want a profile for Oddworld - Abe's Oddysee but are tired of other profiles not set up accurately as the Playstation was then this is the profile for you. It is about as solid as you are going to get and makes the game feel like you are truely gaming on a console. I even went further and added full analog support that the playstation didn't offer

Updated Analog version now available! Click Here!


*Did further testing and made sure all conflicts with key-combos with Red/Blue/Green/Yellow "Shifting" were removed to stay consistent with Playstation control method..and are very solid now

*Gave support for complete Analog control via Tilting.

*Now You can tilt either analog stick a little to "Sneak", push it midway to to "Walk" and pushing it all the way makes him "Run"

*Added rumble support for when he's "Chanting", which will increase via "Ramp effect 3" to match the timeframe he takes for mind-controlling enemies.

*Fixed R1+R2 Chant
New profile for the steam version 100% the same as the original playstation 1 key map works GREAT :)
Hey again,

This is my 2nd Profile, not too dissimilar to my first except less complex.

Abe's Oddysee just got released on Steam super cheap so I thought I'd chuck both the profiles I've been using up.

This is for the Xbox 360 Wireless Controller for Windows (stupidest name ever - way to make things long and complicated M$)

Here it is. Feedback is welcome.
