well there are gaming mice which have the resolution and programmable buttons.
And when my mouse fails I may even get one of those.

  hey jeremy, good for you man.
i sent the idea up the flagpole of forcing users to use only a mouse with rail racer, and got such a massive negative response, i ended up putting in the option for keyboard support, even though the keyboard input isn't as accurate, or frankly in my opinion, as fun. i applaud your decision here, its not like a mouse is going to break anyones bank, and almost all computer systems come with one anyhow. Hopefully more AG gamers and developers will realize the mouse is a great way to interact with our games and it will soon be the norm instead of the exception. for you folks out there not playing swamp because you don't want to break out a mouse, your seriously missing potentially the game of the year.
  See you in zombie land.

Yes this is definitely a question that has been asked a lot, lol. I have the game coded so that you can't accidentally move the mouse outside of the game's window, in fact, the mouse cursor stays perfectly centered on the screen and can not move while the game is running.

While it would be possible for the current Swamp game to have keyboard support, I am choosing not to add it. If the support exists, then I will be constantly limited as I add and change controls and map content. Juggling 2 totally different ways to play is more trouble than it's worth, since I am actually wanting people to use a mouse in this game. If I was neutral about it and didn't really care which was used, I would be willing to bend a little more in order to maintain separate keyboard support.

Clearly people will not all agree with my pro mouse stance for Swamp, and I do apologize for those who are unhappy with it, but I'm kind of trying to hold my ground in order to establish the mouse as a valid input method. If given any other choice, I think most people wouldn't even give the mouse a chance. By forcing people to use the mouse, I have a feeling many people have grown to like it. In short, I'm totally being a jerk with the controls, just to force people to try something they don't want to try, haha! I can admit it.


Hi list.
I guess this question has been asked before,
but is there a way I can play swamp without the mouse?
I realise that the mouse is more accurate than keyboard
navigation,
however I am playing on a laptop, and so only have a track
pad.
also, I can easily see myself clicking outside the window
and opening other stuff on the computer, plus, I guess I am
just lazy and would rather use the keyboard.
perhaps some alternative keystrokes could be added such as
control for firing your gun etc,
of course I guess movement will be a bit of a problem given
the arrow keys control radar functions, but I would really
rather use the keyboard for navigation and firing of
weapons.
I just had a thought, perhaps alt and the arrow keys could
be added in to allow for navigation with the keyboard. so
alt and up could move you forward, alt and down could move
you back, and alt left and right could side step you.
