Update optimizes control, brings new features
What else is changing? The update 5.2 improves the control with mouse and keyboard. So it says in the patch notes:
– A new type of mouse control has been added that rarely moves unintentionally when you control the focus camera with the mouse.
With the newly added Type 2, you can switch between monster parts by holding down the Sight button and using the scroll wheel when you have a monster targeted. In this type, the focus camera also takes longer to dissolve.
Select Start Menu> System> Options> Control to customize the controller.
– New camera control category added for the keyboard settings.
Camera control used to be limited to the keys O, K, L, and +, but can now be applied to other buttons by going to Main Menu> Options> Button Configuration.
- In addition, players now receive a list of all received items on the reward screen when completing a quest and
- choosing “Take All” and
- it was added to a “friends can join” option at private sessions
Bug fixes are also available: The new PC update fixes some bugs in Monster Hunter World.
