View Full Version : Inverted Mouse Look!

08-16-2002, 02:54 PM
It may just be me, but I am an old time inverted mouselook player. Will this game only be non-inverted. It would let me down a little, but I would still play.

On the official boards one of the dev's said that they're going to include it but haven't gotten to it yet.

and Welcome to the forums :D .

well here's a quote from one of the beta update things
I'm still a little disoriented from the non-inverted mouselook, but otherwise it was a nice start!
Got a good feel for the max targetable distance, and it appears to be more than enough. It'll be interesting to see how long-range combat will work out doesn't mean that it won't be implemented, just that it wasn't in beta 1

So what does that mean really, did they have to drag the mouse towards them to look up or push it away, which is normal?

some thing like that, i think it was like moving mouse right looks left, moving forward looks down, ect.

that reminds me..... im probably the only guy who registered in 2001.... you newbies :p

I really don't understand the fun in 'lurking' on forums. I've tried, but utterly failed. Understanding, that is, not lurking.

well look at it this way, if you wnat to be recongnized for your '1337 spam skilz' you want to take notes on all the threads and make 40-50 posts in each forum on you first day so that your posts per day count is greatly inflated...

or like me, you were just to lazy to take a minute to sign up:D

Oh, and in a rare attempt to, for once, post on topic!

Hold on, boys and girls! Here it comes!

"Inverted mouselook is silly"

Yup. Sure is. One of the sillier inventions ever. The only excuse is for flight games. And flights are played with a joystick, as everyone knows.

Beware of inverted mouse look. It's sillyness will reach out and grab you.

well, it's okay in things like flight simulators and maybe the rare FPS but in an "RPG"(notice the ""s set:D) like SWG it would be out of place

08-22-2002, 10:42 PM
Inverted mouse look in fps games makes me nauseous. Like car sickness. So yes, it's personal :)

I dont know set....
I played all Delta Force games and a whole lot of GTA3
and i believe they all are inverted mouse games..... you get used to it.. and it is pretty easy.

Yes, but why get used to it, when you are already used to Normal Mouselook from your desktop view. :D

Hmm.. let's compare the words;

normal. As in how it is supposed to be. As in 'not deranged'. As in 'doesn't make you throw up'. As in 'not being run over by a truck in a mall'.

then we have

inverted. As in 'the opposite as what it is supposed to be'. As in 'goddammit, something's wrong, this is completely inverted!'. As in chocolate icecream without chocolate.

There. Is my point clear enough? :D

Well, let's put it like this:

A mouse is a mouse and a joystick is a joystick. :D
A mouse is not a joystick and a joystick is not a mouse. :D

08-26-2002, 08:43 PM
How much I hate it? Well, let's put it like this:

If inverted mouse setting was a tiny, fluffy puppy dog with the biggest chestnutcoloured eyes you've ever seen, I'd still grind it to pulp with the biggest pair of Martens I could get my grossed-out little hands upon. Die, puppy, die!

08-26-2002, 09:00 PM
I must agree with setsuko. Let's take it from the dr. Seuss angle:
*ahem*. "Mouses drink mouse juice and joysticks drink joystick juice, but when mouses drink joystick juice and joysticks drink mouse juice, oh the things that will happen, they're surprising, you'll see! Look, there's a drug addict cat on my knee! And look, over there, it's a jedi wannabe! Oh the problems with mice when they don't work right, inverted mouselook is good only in flight."


Yeah. sorry, I've been taking care of my nephews.

I think they should just have an option to turn inverted mouse on/off, it wouldn't be that hard...

as far as i can tell, they'll add it when they get around to coding it
