Marie, I am trying to play the first AC and am seriously about to give up. The game controls seem clunky and I guess I hate games that don't allow you to save at will.
If you are a seasoned AC player, maybe you can help me?
I am supposed to pickpocket someone. I lock on with the F key, start following, get the instruction to pick the pocket by using the Shift key, and use the shift key, but it never works. Never. I've tried probably two dozen times.
The problem is, when I fail I then have to reload and replay for at least five minutes before I can try this again. Frankly I'm getting very bored walking through this town over and over again (that's not really my idea of exciting gaming).
Do have any pointers on the pickpocket sequence?
No fancy-pantsy Elven dagger-twirlers. Just tough guys.
