Fix Inverted Controls for Batman Arkham Asylum (PC Version) with a gamepad.

If BatMan walks forward while you press down on the left analog stick and walks backward when you press up on the analog stick.

If you are used to the normal XBOX/XBOX360 controller layout, you may notice the X/Y and A/B control bindings are backwards as well.

This how this issue can be easily fixed.

1) Browse to the “\BmGame\Config\” directory where the game is installed. For example:”C:\Program Files (x86)\Eidos\Batman Arkham Asylum\BmGame\Config”

2) Right click on the “DefaultInput.ini” file and select Properties.

3) Verify that the “Read-only” option is not selected.

4) Next, right click the “DefaultInput.ini” file again and select “Open with…” then choose Notepad.

5) Locate the following entry within the file:
.Bindings=(Name=”XboxTypeS_LeftY”,Command=”Axis aBaseY Speed=1.0 DeadZone=0.3 | Axis aRawLHJoyUp Speed=1.0 DeadZone=0.0″ )

6) Within the entry find the 2 variables that say “Speed”, change both from ‘1.0’ to ‘-1.0’

7) It should now look like:.Bindings=(Name=”XboxTypeS_LeftY”,Command=”Axis aBaseY Speed=-1.0DeadZone=0.3 | Axis aRawLHJoyUp Speed=-1.0 DeadZone=0.0″ )

8) Thats it! Simply save the file then test out the game.

Follow these next steps ONLY if you would like to swap the X/Y and A/B controller buttons within the game.

9) Locate the following entries:
.Bindings=(Name=”XboxTypeS_A”,Command=”DebugCamSingleFrameStep | Run | ContextSensitive |CapeGlide | AcceptConversation | Evade | DebugMenuSelectA | CancelBatarangCamera”)

.Bindings=(Name=”XboxTypeS_B”,Command=”HangFromVantagePoint | BlockBreaker | DebugCamMoreSpeed | OnRelease DebugCamNormalSpeed | ExitAgilityMode | SkipCutscene | CancelGadget | DebugMenuSelectB | CancelBatarangCamera”)

.Bindings=(Name=”XboxTypeS_X”,Command=”QuickStrike | AttackSilentFinish | DebugMenuSelectX | CancelBatarangCamera”)

.Bindings=(Name=”XboxTypeS_Y”,Command=”Grab | ActivateNoise | AttackFearFinish | DebugMenuSelectY | SpecialMoveCheat | CancelBatarangCamera”)

10) Simply change the letters (A, B, X, Y) in each entry to swap the default button controls.
a. Change “XboxTypeS_A” to “XboxTypeS_B”
b. Change “XboxTypeS_B” to “XboxTypeS_A”
c. Change “XboxTypeS_X” to “XboxTypeS_Y”
d. Change “XboxTypeS_Y” to “XboxTypeS_X”

11) Lastly, save the file and test it out!
