View Full Version : Calling all lbp vita beta testers. (If you we're in the beta)

09-23-2012, 08:00 PM
Just 2 things annoy me a little about the full release.

1: in the beta you were able to specify what player controlled to a given controlinator.. Final version it's not in here. Do you guys/gals recall that as well?

2: also I cannot remember or not but hopefully you guys/gals can help me refresh my memory. But wasn't there a paint gun in the beta to?

for the life of me I can't remember number 2 but for sure number 1 was the reason I couldn't wait to get my paws on the final build what do you guys think?

Thanks :)

No? No reply? Lol

I do recall there being an option to select a player for the controllinator and other things. You could tweak almost every object and make it moveable (by touch) by only a certain player.

But there was no paintgun

I could have sworn there was a paintinator all though I could be mistaken for the controlinator and I got confused but yea it's amazing how come they took that stuff out?! It was the best thing since water in lbp1 lol idk

afaik, no paint gun. Also I believe you could do what you described.

09-24-2012, 09:35 PM
Meh i don't feel like much was taken out.

Game feels more solid than LBP1 did.. and it's totally portable.

Ohay Silencer. :p

I haven't looked at controllinators in the full game, and that doesn't seem right... Maybe they changed how you have to do it? I dunno. :(

There wasn't a Paintinator, which kinda got me upset at first but then I realized that the Creatinator now has a tweak to fire on every tap of the R button, rather than having to hold it. Now that​ seems useful.

Hey buddy! Haha. But yea I love lbp vita in most cases it seems better than lbp2 to be honest.

Just I loved the simplified controlinator to a specific player I COULD live with out paintinator.... Maybe lol but all in all Tarsier and mm did an outstanding job I love it :)

The Paintinator's an outdated thing anyways. Why would you want it? It's from 2009 or whenever MGS was released (goodness, it's been a while).

And for Controlinators being assigned to be controlled by certain players... I saw that in there. I don't know what you saw, but I saw it. Heck, it was in the tutorial. Unless we're seeing different things.

I disagree, I love the paintinator. I'd love to see it make a return. Feels like a much needed tool in the game. Lockstitch proved in his paintinator level that cool things can still be done with it :)

09-25-2012, 03:08 PM
Ty nick, yea the paintinator is an awesome little gadget the question is WHY wouldn't you want it? Lol yea I just checked that in fact have that option in the tutorial vids but when you tweak the controlinator it's not there and I'm not talking about "next to the player" I'm talking about specific player. In the beta and in the tutorial vids you can see the little flag indicating if you want the controlinator to be anyone, or player 1,2,3,4 specifically... That option is no longer available or unless I'm doing something wrong.

We removed that specific feature of the Controlinator because it didn't work quite right. :)

09-25-2012, 06:33 PM
well in the beta I was gonna remake ramp but im waiting for karting and thanks syroc for the update but im going to miss the paintinator. all the lovelyness of over heating levels with paint is now washed away excuse me as a cry a little :'(

We removed that specific feature of the Controlinator because it didn't work quite right. :)

Will it ever come? Because if it won't, that would really screw up my evil take-over-LBP scheme level plans.
Although I'll proabably find a way around it, it would be much easier.

It might! Until then maybe you can build work-arounds with all the other tools that have Player Filters like the Player Sensor, Followers, and Touch Sensors. Or even the Selector, which has a lovely new Player ID setting. :)

I think the paintinator is useful. The creatinator just looks a bit goofy to me. Not my favorite power-up, really.

09-26-2012, 12:19 AM
Wow thanks for the info syroc for sure I hope it comes back because its something I've been waiting for since the launch of lbp 2 only because it seems like the most logical solution to multiplayer I mean you could do so much with that. I do how ever see the possibilities that come with the follower, player sensor etc that do have them but the controlinator with that function would be the icing on the cake :)
