Using Mouse to play FS2?

<< < (3/3)

Well I am back! Got it downloaded, Kossnos Launcher installed and been playing the last 2 days with the mouse. I can say I still prefer my stick and throttle I have stored away in the back room. I just wanted to be able to play this game while in the living room on my gamer laptop and it's acceptable if not optimal :)

Now I'll able to do some getting back into making textures and stuff like I did many moons ago.

Thanks all for your help!


I used to play FS2 with a left-handed mouse and the numpad with of custom configuration to do 90% of my keybinds on my right hand with my left hand to aim, target, and shoot.

Been playing FS/FS2 exclusively with a 2 button mouse for years. Became an expert in flying with it in 98 before I had any money to burn.

If you like what you have there's no reason to bail. Find what works for you.

(Except for those old-old-old non-optical mouses they used to have on Dell PCs. The ones with the ball inside? They used to gather lint. Many curses sworn. Many ragequits, many deaths.)

I've rarely played with anything other than mouse + keyboard. I always found the joystick jarring and uncomfortable.
