Disable MS Mouse Preferences
Authored by: Spencerian on Dec 11, '02 12:45:55PM
Maybe another clarification would help: Jedi Knight II and Castle Wolfenstein have their own mouse-button mapping system. This system conflicts with the IntelliMouse system preference software (Microsoft Mouse) for Mac OS X. This may cause weird behavior in your games, from the inability to map mouse buttons, game features activating all by themselves, to kernel panics. To resolve this, first try excluding the application from using the driver. To do this, open the Microsoft Mouse system preference. Click the Add button in the pane, just below the Global Settings pop up menu. In the dialog box that appears, choose the application you want to exclude and click the Choose button. Finally, check the box "Disable IntelliPoint features for the application selected to the left." If this doesn't help, be sure you have the latest Microsoft Mouse driver. Currently, this is version 3.1.0, available from Microsoft's Mouse web site.
