Hello.

The day after the demo version, I decided to purchase the full version, so yeah - everything is fine.
Then I came across the internet when I asked the best controls for speedrunning because I couldn't speedstrafe easily.

They said I have to use either Southpaw or Legacy (or both) in Advanced Control Options. So, I went to settings and there was no Advanced Controls options, and I looked in the other control settings aswell where you can change to 3 controls. So, I searched it up and there seems to be an update.
The problem is, how do you install the update? Or Manually if it doesn't work automatically.

I made a video of trying to find the settings:
Direct watchable: http://www.mediafire.com/watch/eysg3hzzbm75ydt/VID_20131009_124729.mp4

So yeah, everyone was saying I missed a lot of options.
And they told me the game asks you to update, but it either didn't or I missed it.

So, how do I get those extra options?

Thanks in advance.

Typically when you launch a game with an update available you get prompted to install that update right away. I'm surprised you aren't. Maybe there's a setting in the dashboard menus that controls whether or not that's the case. You could try downloading from XBLA again, but I remember having to update as soon as I downloaded it, so I assume the download is still for the original version.

Edit: Possibly a dumb question, but is your 360 connected to the internet? Obviously you won't be able to get the update without being online.

I remember looking at that when I was borrowing an XBox - I live offline so couldn't find any way to do it. Frankly I felt the xBox controller just didn't seem to work with PD whereas the logitech one seemed to actually work better via emulation. It was kind of odd.

Yes, I'm sure connected to the internet.
When the Xbox 360 starts up, it loads the settings and it will say the profile has signed in, and ofcourse it's the same I use for Perfect Dark.

And I saw someone else doing an update for PES2013 back a while ago so updates aren't disabled?

I even redownloaded the game but it didn't work either.
Google doesn't help me any further, even Rare or Microsoft websites.. Ofcourse, I can play this game, but there are way less settings.

I even asked people that has PD XBLA aswell and they are really surprised why I couldn't get this update, and I even showed it by video (The video I posted here) Maybe I need to finish the game first?

So, I really hope there is a solution to this 'strange behaviour'

Have you tried clearing the system cache? It'll delete all updates for games, but it usually fixes any other problems with updating as well.

Yes, I finally received the update!

The last 2 things I did was:

Adding the save to the Internal Memory which is strange because the game was already saved. I noticed it because I saw you could press X to change Storage Device. I just tried it out to be sure.

The other thing I did was removing my Payment Method from the account.
When I rebooted it finally asked for an update!!!!
I'm happy now, the Southpaw control is awesome!!!

I no longer have my Xbox, sold it a little while ago after it sat on the shelf for a years time. That game was a blast on that console and I will definitely miss it... I had a LOT of good Speedrun times that I'll never see again, and only recorded one (G5 Building 42s, eventually got in the 30's). I used a knock-off Xbox controller that was much, much sharper and better than the retail Xbox 360 controllers which allowed me to attain incredible times without changing any settings.
