First off, I play with a PS3 controller.
I used to be able to move my right joystick to the floor when I was sitting or kneeling to do a synthesis, and the camera would get right up close. You could even do it standing or fishing. I believe I have plenty of screenshots to prove it.
Now it seems like it'll only get so close.
Additionally, if I did accidentally roll the mouse wheel to change the camera distance, I could always do an R3 on the controller to reset the camera to where my configuration was set. Now, it seems like rolling the mouse wheel resets the camera, and the R3 button will just flip you between 1st and 3rd person, but it doesn't reset the camera distance to the configuration setting.
Anyone else experiencing these things? Is there any way to report the behavior to them, seeing as they don't have official forums?
