I'm in full screen mode but shift M is doing nothing.
Mouse control does work, as Cody mentioned above. Here are some troubleshooting tips:
- Are you using the default keyconfig.plist? Have you made changes to it or maybe there is an OXP with an alternative one? You may want to try to start a game in strict mode to be sure that no OXPs are influencing it.
- You can open with a text editor keyconfig.plist, found inside
and see what key is specified in the line for setting mouse control. On my system, this line reads:
key_mouse_control = "M";
- Do you have mouse available on the very first game screen, the one with the rotating Cobra? You should be able to select options from that screen using the mouse. This way we at least know that it is recognized by the game.
- When you say full screen, you don't mean maximized window, right? I am referring to proper full screen, like the mode you get when you press F12. You can try this test: Launch game, press immediately F12. It will go fullscreen. Now start commander and launch from Lave. Press Shift+M (if you are using the default key configuration, otherwise press whatever mouse control is set to). You should see the message "Mouse control on" appearing on screen.
If you are still having problems using mouse after all these checks, please post the contents of the file Latest.log found inside oolite.app/Logs, after having started the game with Shift held down until the rotating Cobra appears.
