1. Not always that important, but, yes, like some others said, sometimes it
would be nice for certain types of actions (and not really relevant, but
along the lines of that one, I have a sort of gamepad/joystick that works
way better for me in racing games than keystrokes).
2. Not necessarily since wouldn't mean to/make use of it too often.
3. USB optical mouse
4. two standard buttons, plus scroll wheel
5. yes
6. I might appreciate scrolling actions being supported by something like a
scroll wheel, and things like aiming with the mouse, or maybe using it for
certain types of almost interactive activities, like performing tasks like
opening doors/weapon use, symbols/pattern replication, but would prefer to
stick to keyboard for more standard things like walking, etc. For example,
in old sighted days, when playing FPS games, while I would have used mouse
for turning/aiming, I would still use the keyboard for actually walking,
climbing, etc.

Subject: [Audyssey] Mouse Support in Games


Hi everyone,

This is a friendly notice to let everyone know what we are up to, and
to get a little feedback from those customers planning to purchase our
games. At the time being we at USA Games are involved in adding
multiple input devices to the Genesis 3D engine for Windows which will
include keyboard, mouse, and joystick support for all of our up and
coming Windows titles. For that reason we have just spent the past
week adding and debugging mouse support which will be available in
Mysteries of the Ancients beta 17 once we finalize that branch of the
code. Which brings us to some questions about your mouse setup and
thoughts.

1. As a gamer how important is mouse support to you?

2. If supported would you consider purchasing a mouse with five or
more buttons for game input?

3. What type of mouse device/devices do you currently own? (Such
answers may include: none, touch pad, USB optical mouse, wireless
optical mouse, PS2 standard mouse, trackball, etc.)

4. How many buttons does your mouse device have? Is it a two button,
three button, five button, or eight button mouse?

5. Does your mouse device have a scroll wheel?

6. What do you think of the following input commands for a
side-scroller like Mysteries of the Ancients?

Menu Next: wheel forward
Menu Prier: wheel backward
Menu Select: left button

Climb Down: wheel backward
Climb Up: wheel forward
Jump Left: left button+mouse left
Jump Right: left button+mouse right
Jump Up: left button+mouse forward
Perform Action: middle button
Run Left: right button+mouse left
Run Right: right button+mouse right
Walk Left: mouse left
Walk Right: mouse right

Sincerely,
Thomas Ward
Chief Operating Officer
