Hacking

Is it just me or the Computer hacking is Fudging hard? im basically stuck on the first hacking computer in the game. tried about 10 times and got frustrated. im usually good at mini puzzle in games but this is hard. i know what to do to complete the hacking, but its hard to concetrate on the numbers to see if they are moving or not. is there any tips you can give me on this before i delete it?

If you have a controller, it does wonders.

Yep, just look at the screen and see the characters that are not moving. If you are not fast enough, the location does change. Just don't sit too close to the screen or everything in the hacking minigame does kind of blur together.

You actually prefer kb/m for this minigame?
For the rest of the game kb/m works great, but this specific minigame just doesn't respond right to mouse movement.

KB&M is the only way I play this game. It takes a few minutes to get used to the mouse reaction time, but other than that, the only problem is actually seeing the non-moving code. I focus on the background, more than the numbers.

That's kinda what I do to. It's harder to notice the numbers when you're focusing on them because the motion blurs it all together. I look at something else and keep the numbers in my peripheral vision. I'm not sure if it's a common thing, but they seem to stand out better that way to me.
