Unhappy Adrenaline Dodge for PC

Has anyone had problems initiating the adrenaline dodge for the PC version on a keyboard? It works maybe 1 time in a hundred for me. If I press shift and direction she crouches and gets run over, and if a push the direction and shift she gets run over. Very frustrating as it more consistantly doesn't work than does.

Bascially on my mouse I do:

Left Click = Take out guns.
Right Click = Shoot.
Middle button = Dodge.

So much easier!

The Adrenaline dodge works very bad (I also have only the PC version) and like you said it works 1 time out of 100, personaly I don't find this technique very useful in the game , maybe CD will give up on it ...

I had a lot of problems with it too, HAD, I changed some control settings, f is roll, like in Legend and the right mouse is jump.When I do the adrenaline-dodge, I go over on the keyboard, F, G and H... That works fine for me

The important thing when you have to dodge is to keep your target on the enemy (do not run away) and to press the 2 keys really fast at the right moment. Maybe this video will help you :

No wonder so many struggles with AD on PC! The manual is wrong!
You have to hold locked on target (RightMouseButton) and keep it pressed, then you can do the rest as it say in manual.
Alternative is to turn on advanced combat, then Lara should'nt lower here guns until you "tell" her to. (Doesnt always work tho)

For AD, see this thread.

EDIT: Ok, because it also shows Centaur Battle, I'm going to put it here:

To perform AD:

Quote:
1.Fill enemy Rage bar
2.Enemy will attack Lara with rage attack
3.Stop shooting at that enemy but keep guns aimed to it
4.Move Lara to left or right
5.Screen will blur and arrow keys will show up on the bottom right of the screen
6.Don't leave the left/right button and keep aimed and press roll
7.One or two grey reticles will show up
8.Wait to see a red reticle on the enemy, and then shoot once
Clara [CA] I can't see the video!!!!
