Ok, first, I'm assuming Freespace2 doesn't support the mouse wheel scroll and mouse buttons > 3.  Is it possible for FSSCP to add support for the mouse scroll wheel (up and down, side to side would just be amazing because i have one of those MS ones with tilt-wheel) and buttons 4 and 5?  DirectX is already used for part of the engine anyway...

Oh yea, FSSCP 3.5.6 is AMAZING!  The only thing I dislike is that I get sudden pauses in gameplay when ships warp in, and maybe that's only on my comp.

the axis should be bind-able and the buttons should definantly be bind-able already -- FS2 uses DIP

Nope, I tried and the axis is not bindable.  The buttons aren't bindable either.  I'm using MS Wireless IntelliMouse Explorer 2.0.  The buttons are bindable in other DIP games (Counter-Strike takes both buttons 4 and 5).

"Scarry": code that's seen so many changes that one can't make out the functional code from the cruft that should, in theory, never be reached.

Or did you mean 'scary'? I think it works out to the same thing. :D

Welcome to HLP. There are exits to the left and rear. Do not attempt to use them. Under your seat you will find empty beer cans, cookie crumbs, corpses of newbies, dog eared dungeon Porn mags left by Shrike... oh, and a Flamethrower. Unfortunately, we're out of napalm, so you'll have to bludgeon people to death with them.

In the event of serious conflict, there are plasma rifles in the forward locker, though these can only be opened by an Admin or Hyperintelligent shade of the colour Blue. If, for whatever reason, you find yourself crawling around in the ductwork, there's a better than average chance you'll encounter a Shivan. They're easy to spot with the five legs and all. If you're lucky, it's just Carl, who responds well to food rewards. If not, then at least you die quickly. Be aware that the entrance to the main control room is guarded by subspatial claymore mines.

Do not mention FS3. Karajorma's FAQ is your friend. Have a nice day.

I know someone who played with 5 mouse buttons and it worked fine.

Maybe Microsoft's IntelliPoint just interacts poorly with DIP or somethin... IntelliPoint does not even let you bind mouse buttons to keystrokes.

The person I know used a Microsoft IntelliMouse Explorer too.

Hey, welcome to HLP Scoob. Interesting problem you have, as I used to have an Intellimouse Explorer and remember being able to use the extra buttons I had. Never tried the scroll wheel, though... hmm, any one else had different experiences?

THE HARD LIGHT ARRAY. Always makes you say wow.

It's not an explorer, it's a wireless explorer 2.0 with tiltwheel.  Anyway, it's no big deal since i just bound them to some keyboard keys.  It doesn't take much away from the experience, FSSCP looks really amazing...
