Good Lord!! you are right, i will install right away !!
i'm fine with using the mouse and work with addictive pausing ;)
Now if HW2 receives an tac pause ( or did THAT game receive one to? ( ( rhetorical yes i can use google to ))) then i can play the entire trilogy at my own leisure!
As you already have the game, maybe you could answer a question for me and likely others?
Is the game controllable mostly with the mouse as with other Homeworld titles?
What I mean is- is there a major requirement to use the WASD etc keyboard controls for movement etc?
I am old school and like to remap WASD to the arrow keys. I am far too old and lazy to learn WASD now.
If there is no major need to use WASD then I might pick this game up.
No, this game is indeed perfectly controlleable with the mouse, including edge scrolling with your mouse
Funny you should say this, there seems to be a revival ongoing for using the mouse and keyboard to control your games. Solaster is one of the latest games that includes this where your only option is either using the mid mouse button to press and scroll while not offering edge scrolling anywhere. Of course this option is perfectly suited for slow games such as CiV VI, games that don't include twisting and turning of the camera but in games such as Total War or other fast paced games ( of course in total war edge scrolling is either found in the options or enabled by default, at least still for now )
Also, it seems to be a definite sign of multiplayer ignorance developer type so be warned ;)
