Some enterprising users are collating all data about how to mod the recently released Dead Island to fix some commonly complained about issues like FOV and mouse sensitivity; it is all available in this post on the Steam forums.

There was some concern raised about this possibly triggering a VAC ban, but Steam Support have settled the issue with a Twittering clearly stating that modding your Dead Island setup won't get you banned.

Oh kick f*****g ass. Dark skies mod with thunder is awesome looking. Together with the Reduce Fog mod and it just looks even better. Thanks for the post trog. I bloody love this game. 30 hours in so far according to steam and only 40% of the way through.

using number keys to switch weapons

But there isn't a link after it, anyone done that yet? If so link / post on how would be greatly appreciated.

As using a "weapon wheel" selector & "next weapon" key darkens my soul...

GOLD post Enska!

Back to OP tho... I hope that the dev company spots some of the changes ppl are making and take notes...

whilst it's a PC game... on PC it play's markedly better with a gamepad :\

yea iv been playing this game with a ps3 controller on pc because its better to play with. I did encounter a bug early today where i rammed a zombie i had to kill THROUGH a garage door taking tht truck to turn into a tank. pissed me off cause i had to restart tht mission back at the lifeguard tower. other than tht and some graphical bugs this game has been smooth sailing for me

I wonder how the lead designer feels about his game when people bang up quick mods that PC'ify the game and is highly popular. Basically saying that the designer was WRONG with the PC approach. Do they cry or learn?

edit: Also Floating main menu WTF?

I reckon the developers should have held off another month and fixed everything. But I reckon they were too worried about the better games coming out next month so they released what they had and are prolly using this money to fix s*** up.

They might not have had a choice, usually its the publisher who sets the release date, its only really companies like Valve or Blizzard who get to say "F*** you, we'll release it when its ready".
