Hello!!!

So I recently “upgraded” to a mac, and I immediatly noticed that the mouse controls send me spinning wildly around! From my experience on the windows version, right clicking the mouse instantly kills all yaw and pitch (centering the mouse). On the Mac however, I don’t get any of this. A “right” click (I’ve programmed the right side of the mouse to the secondary button), instead locks any mouse movement, but doesn’t actually center the mouse, hence leaving me continually rotating like a washing machine in my Adder. Is this behaviour normal for the Mac version, or am I doing something wrong? Or this a bug? Is this a feature? Or something else entirely....?

Currently running 1.88 on Mojave 10.14

Thanks in advance

It seems like there is somewhat different handling for the right mouse button on the Mac. Can't test anything without a volunteer though. Would you be willing to try the tomorrow's nightly build if I attempt a fix (or at least try to make it behave like the Windows/Linux port)?

Yeah sure! I’d be willing to do that, though it might take me a while to get back to you.

OK, change committed. Please be aware that due to technical reasons it might take a few days for the Mac nightly to be generated. You should keep an eye on the releases of the nightlies repository on github.
