Psycho Mantis, GCN, Wavebird only. Can it be done?
So I'm playing Metal Gear Solid for the first time ever. I know, I gotta get with the times huh? Anyway I seem to be stuck on Psycho Mantis. I'm told I need to move my controller from port 1 to any other port and then I'll actually be able to hit him. Problem is, it doesn't fucking work.
A little background; I'm playing the Gamecube version (The Twin Snakes) and I'm using a Wavebird. I don't own any wired controllers. I couldn't ever imagine a world where I'd need them. I've tried moving the receiver from port one to various other ports, but it doesn't seem to make a difference. I can get in maybe one hit for every 20 shots.
Is this a wavebird compatibility thing or do I just suck? I notice that Snake never auto-targets Mantis. Should I be aiming at something else? I've tried aiming in first person, but after a second or two it switches to Mantis' view.
Has anyone else ever beaten Mantis with a Wavebird? I've also heard that this statue head shooting thing doesn't work in the GCN version. Does anyone know anything about that?
