WC Privateer Trouble
« on: August 18, 2015, 01:19:39 PM »
Dunno where I could pose this question so I hope maybe one of you guys have experience with this game in DOSBox, since it's somewhat related to ASCII Sector.

So I busted out my old CD and installed this baby with DOSBox. The game runs fine, I've set up the correct graphics options and so on. But then, I noticed I have an issue with mouse controls.

The problem: Whenever I use right mouse button to roll the ship, it also reduces my speed as if I used the "-" button.

Is there a fix for this or do I just have to play with keyboard?

No fix because it's original behavior - when you move mouse right-left you change speed, when you move mouse up-down you roll the ship.

"Patient, young Padawan! You must train hard to move your mouse in one direction only..." ;D

EDIT: You may try to "foul the system" and roll ship with max speed. I mean moving up-down and in the same time right (I think) to keep max speed.

Ahh, great information. I believe I played with keyboard only way back when.

Thank you very much!
