I'm really out of the loop on what technology people use to play old games that they don't have the consoles for.
The controls in RE seem purposely terrible and take getting used to. Yes indeedie. I wouldn't change 'em, though!!! And yes, the slow doors opening every time you enter a new room blow. Bad bad bad. I WOULD change that, if possible. Because Capcom COULDN'T change it when they put out the much loathed "Director's Cut" of the original RE.
