I’m playing through Crysis for the first time, and the VTOL controls seem buggy, to say the least. I am currently in a quiet spot, no enemies, so I can experiment with them under no pressure.
It seems that at least 75% of the time, pressing the control keys just has no effect whatsoever. I’m hovering completely still, at a fixed altitude, press Space - it goes up. Press W - it goes forward. 5 seconds later the controls shut down: I’m stationary, pressing Space does nothing, pressing W does nothing either.
What gives? Is this a known bug? Is there a fix/work-around for this?
(Searching for this finds a couple of frustrated gamers, each told that they are just stupid or can’t figure out the controls by people who obviously don’t experience the bug.)
