    Hi,
    I’m still testing the trial version before buying & it looks very good so far (hopefully even better when I get a headset in a couple of days lol).

    So far I have got Legend of Grimrock working, at least as far as getting into the game, but there is no actual head tracking, rather, I have to use the keyboard keys to turn or strafe, or alternatively I can hold the right mouse button down to look around.
    That’s ok, but the main problem is, I need to be able to use the mouse to click on menu items while in the game, is this possible? Can anyone suggest settings for this please?

    (I can see the mouse pointer on my desktop screen, but not in the game itself).

    Thanks for any help 🙂

    ok, update in case it helps anyone else – looks like enabling ‘capture cursor’ in the video tab allows me to use the mouse inside the game. 🙂

    About that carpal thing: during all the decades that i used diferent mice and pointing devices i found that most carpal problems are caused by poorly designed pointing devices resulting in painful handling of them. Even wrong positioning or a bad seat (i.e. height) add to this.

    A gaming mouse would provide enough extra buttons that movement could be mapped to them, which would solve most of the one-handed play problems. Inventory open/close and weapon toggle would also be helpful to map to the mouse though.
