Officer Issue with Zoom

Postby Red Intruder » Sat Oct 30, 2004 8:04 pm

I didn't see this in the other forums, so I'm guessing it is Mac only. When you create an Officer, zoom in (using "z"), and then click on it without moving the mouse afterwards, the order above the Officer's head switches continuously between "Follow" and "None". As soon as you move the cursor away from the Officer, the order stays on whichever was last up.

This isn't intentional, is it?

A similar thing happens with Squads under the zoom. If you have a squad selected, zoom in (using "z"), and click-hold (only until they start shooting, then you can let go) somewhere for them to fire without moving your cursor afterwards, the Squad will continue to fire at that location until the cursor is moved. This doesn't apply for grenades, though.

Sorry to barge in on your part of the forums, but I just tried what you've described on my Windows beta and I've had no such effect.
Are you using the 1-button mouse control schema?

Yes, 1 button mouse- sorry I should've mentioned that in the beginning.

Actually, I just realized that this issue is probably my computer's fault. Sometimes when I press the mouse and have another button held in a game, the mouse stays locked on "click mode" for a while.
