mouse problems in old gameWatch
Gangsters: organized crime played on windows xp with windows 98 compatability mode switched on.
The mouse works fine on the menu screens, but once I set up the options to start a game and it initalises the engine the mouse goes to ****s. It's a USB logitech mouse (G500) with setpoint. I've turned setpoint on/off doesn't seem to be affecting it neither does changing sensitivity on the mouse itself.
The problem is that the mouse moves really slow over the screen, often doesnt register movements and jumps a bit.
Does anyone have any suggestions I can experiment with to see if it works please?
Bit sad as this was the best game of my childhood. Although I'm trying to get knights and merchants installed too which was second best
I followed the stream instructions and it fixed the mouse but gave me a colour problem (looked like someone had used paint spray all over the screen despite compat mode), however I found a quick fix.
This is the REAL solution.
Type the following:
taskkill /f /im explorer.exe
start /w Gangsters.exe
Then click Save As.
Do not save as ".txt" ~ Instead, choose "All files" and save as "Fix.bat" and save it in your My Documents. Then Copy the file into the Hothouse>Gangsters location where the Gangsters.exe file is located.
It works Great, thanks
