I don't think it is possible.And no,keyboard is easy if you play for an hour or so.

It's actually quite possible, although I'm not sure how well it actually works.

First, make a copy of the <font face="Courier New">default.ini</font id="Courier New"> file inside your <font face="Courier New">..\IWar2\configs</font id="Courier New"> directory and name it something recognisable, like, say, "mouse.ini".

Next, open that file and edit the line <font face="Courier New">name=options_default</font id="Courier New"> to read something like <font face="Courier New">name=tatyawinchu's Configuration</font id="Courier New">.

Finally, scroll down until you see the following:
; Yoke

&#91;icPlayerPilot.Yaw&#93;
Joystick1, JoyXAxis

&#91;icPlayerPilot.Pitch&#93;
Joystick1, JoyYAxis, inverse

&#91;icPlayerPilot.Roll&#93;
Joystick1, JoyRZAxis

&#91;icPlayerPilot.RollYawToggleHold&#93;
Joystick1, Joybutton2


You'll want to modify that as follows:
; Yoke

&#91;icPlayerPilot.Yaw&#93;
Joystick1, JoyXAxis
Mouse, MouseXAxis
;allows you to move the mouse left and right to turn that way

&#91;icPlayerPilot.Pitch&#93;
Joystick1, JoyYAxis, inverse
Mouse, MouseYAxis, inverse
;allows you to move the mouse up to pitch down, down to pull up

&#91;icPlayerPilot.Roll&#93;
Joystick1, JoyRZAxis
Mouse, MouseZAxis
;allows you to use the scroll wheel to roll your ship

&#91;icPlayerPilot.RollYawToggleHold&#93;
Joystick1, Joybutton2
Mouse, MouseButton3
;allows you to press and hold the middle mouse button to roll
; instead of turn when you move the mouse left or right

That'll be $599.95, please. ;-)

Hi .. thanks so much for those tips .. my dad could do it accordingly .. Now my mouse works for up and down and right and left and rolling .. Only little problem is that it moves nicely up and down but very very slowly right and left .. rolling is ok .. so how to speed it up ? Oh and dad says u really dont want money .. u r just pulling my leg =)... right ?

thanks so much
