Mouse doesnt appear in singleplayer
« on: August 25, 2008, 10:43:33 AM »
Hello!
I just installed BtRL, and installation and patching went without a hitch.
However, when I launch the game, as far as I can see there is not a mouse to browse through the menus. As a result, I cannot configure the game, or even play signleplayer. Does anyone have any idea what is wrong?
Thank you
Williamson

EDIT: I have just discovered that it DOES recognise the mouse, but only while it is still moving. Otherwise it freezes and thats it

I believe it is possible to navigate teh menus with only a key board, although it might take a while.

First time I've heard of this one. What system do you have.

Are you sure you aren't running any software with mouse "enhancements".

I am on linux 7.10 "Hardy Heron". I tried navigating using the arrow pad, but no joy. And my mouse is a laser plug n' play mouse. I've got nvidia Geforve4 if that helps.
Thanks

You say it doesn't appear in Singleplayer. Does that mean it does appear in multi or just that you haven't tried that?

When it comes to Linux problems I can't help much as I don't use Linux myself.

Hello! Its me again!
My mouse problem fixed itself, but now I cant see any servers on multiplayer, even when I I can see them here: http://fs2netd.game-warden.com/main.php?area=activegames
Any idea what my problem is?
