Try pressing both of your laptops mouse buttons at the same time, on some laptops it's configured to act as a middle mouse button.

First alpha build - Can't expect the world. You can emulate both zoom and scroll clicks using key emulator tools as a workaround though. :)

Okay so let me put this out there, I love the idea of this game, it looks like an amazing game.
But here are my list of problems.
- I HAVE NO MOUSE CURSOR! HAVE YOU EVER HEARD OF A GAME WITHOUT A MOUSE CURSOR?!
- I cant see the introduction to the game i paid for. It just brings me to the begining of a jail.

I'm very upset with this game overall, like i said it seems like a really good game, and i love the idea, but this seems a little bit ridiculous
Very upset. I wold like assistance please.. :evil:

What platform are you playing on? Windows, Mac, Steam etc. and using what type of computer?

To be honest, I didn't find the official introduction to the game at all helpful. It's very pretty, with nice graphics and pictures, but it didn't help me understand the game at all in the beginning; after all, this is an alpha ;)

Personally I hate those guides, I think playing the intro and then messing around will get you on your way rather well. Although I have to say I restarted a level about a hunderd times because I ran out of money, I didn't know you could take on grants and 10 000 isn't a lot haha

I would have to disagree... These forums are full of people who try to build 4 walls and then wonder why they can't place indoor room types. They're full of people who use the room tool to paint just one square inside the building and then wonder why it's not a functional room. And it almost always turns out that those people skipped the introduction. So I would say, the introduction helps at least a little ;)
But if you mean that it doesn't teach you everything about the game, I agree. It was made for Alpha 1 and since then, many more features have been added. For those who followed along the way it's not a big deal, but for players who join now I'd imagine it's pretty hard to figure out how all the new features work.
