I'm probably the only person on the planet still playing this game on the PS3. Anyway, I just picked the game up again after a few years and am experiencing an odd bug. The game randomly throws items when I don't specifically press L1. I can get it to happen just by randomly moving the thumb sticks around. It usually happens when I make a quick movement on the sticks. I'm using a stock Sony controller that came with the PS3 and I'm wondering if the controller is somehow bad even though it seems to work fine otherwise. The keys aren't sticking. I even re-mapped throw item to the 'X' button and it still happens, and the detent force requirement on that key is much greater than L1. So it's hard to believe the problem is from false triggers from the controller itself. That being said, I seriously doubt the game has a bug in this area after so many years of maturity.
In any case, any ideas as to what may be the root cause of this? Has this ever been reported before? If so, what was the resolution? Should I buy a new controller? What would you recommend, etc.
Just the other day I was at the beginning of Round 11 in ROD when the game suddenly deployed all 4 of my turrets. So much for surviving the arena after that!
Thanks in advance,
