Omikron: The Nomad Soul profile
Important notes (some are mandatory to get it working, also some notes for Steam users)
[*]The games built-in controller support does not work with the 360, but still interferes with PGP (even when using the blocking feature in PGP). This means that you must have the controller disconnected when the game launches (so you need a small delay). This can be quite hard from the PGP interface to accomplish. Use either of the following options:
[*]Set the game profile as persistent without launching the game, and launch the game after starting the profile
[*]If using Steam Big Picture, using the small launch delay can be enough to disconnect the profile (or use a separate mouse/keyboard)
[*]Use a .bat file:
[*]create a .bat file in the game dir with the following line (without quotes, fill in # with the amount of seconds delay): "timeout /t #s & Runtime.exe & exit"
[*]Set PGP to launch the .bat in the advanced section of the game profile, but make sure all the other paths still point to Runtime.exe (the main.exe), or use the auto-detect feature on Runtime.exe and launch the .bat separetely (sadly does not work with Steam big picture, as you can't add .bat files)
[*]This profile is made to work with the default control settings for the keyboard. Reset to defaults if you have changed controls or remap accordingly
[*]This profile has been tested on the GoG release of the game. It should also work for the Steam version. At the moment I purchased the game, the Steam version did not have the latest patch v188.8.131.52, causing the game to fail on modern systems with more than 2GB of VRAM. Steam users, mind the last bullet!
[*]This profile is pretty straightforward, however some things can be a bit awkward if you are not familiar with Nintendo-style layout. This is most convenient for me (as I find using X to run rather weird), but feel fry to remap. If doing so, do consider the next bullet points:
[*]The walk/run button (B) is a combined key: pressing and holding it once makes you walk, while double pressing it and holding the second press makes you run. This is far more convenient than walking with the D-pad because of the weird turning controls.
[*]The guide button is used as shift to switch to fighting mode. I wanted a clean solution which did not require reconfiguration in the game. Press it once to enter fighting mode (face buttons execute the various attacks), press it again to return to adventure/shooter mode. NOTE FOR STEAM USERS: switching modes with the guide button may interfere with the Steam overlay if enabled. Disable it or remap the cycle command, or remap the in-game controls.
