Screen keeps flipping

Post by walter90 » 09 Dec 2014 00:24

hi,
I was trying to play Jungle Ruins 4 and shortly into the game I jumped and flipped in the air and my screen flipped. I couldn't get it to flip back so I had to do a system restore.

I was playing right out of the folder and not using TRLE. I bought this PC from my GF and she played TR on this machine without this problem. It's an Compaq running Vista Premium.

I hope someone knows what's going on. Thanks!

Disable screen rotation hotkeys. This is usually possible from the settings panel of Your video card. OR remap controls to avoid pressing Ctrl+Alt+Arrow.

Yeah, try to avoid pressing Ctl+Alt+Up arrow in Tomb Raider. :lol: It's a dumb feature of Laptops, no idea why I would want to turn my screen upside down :?

To flip the screen back simply use the opposite arrow key. So Ctrl+Alt+ down arrow and it will turn back.

It is easily possible. I walk with IKJL, jump with D, sprint with W and shoot with A. Much comfier on a laptop keyboard... especially one with a broken numpad.
