I thought I'd posted the following before, but I can't find it. Sorry if I have.


I found that DFC is almost entirely controllable with the mouse, with some exceptions. I'd expect these things to be (relatively, of course) simple to add, so I was wondering if you'd consider it.


1) The first thing could be considered a bug: If you hold down both mouse buttons to run and then release them, if the left button is released a fraction of a second after the right one it works as a click on whatever was highlighted. Perhaps it should only count as a click if the right mouse button was up when the left was pressed down.


2) The inventory could open with a middle click. As far as I can tell, middle clicking doesn't do anything currently.


3) There are a few points where you have to press a key on the keyboard to move. As the right mouse button makes you walk and doesn't have any other use (that I've found) outside the inventory, it would be nice if it was usable in these cases as well:

a] When Bachim tells Kian to stand up, in Book 1

b] When Saga in Interlude II has to get up to go to Magnus

c] When Zoë in Book 3 has to stop cooking

d] When Zoë in Book 3 has to let go of a lever

...and possibly other times I've forgotten.


If the above were implemented, particularly 2 and 3 (1 is basically just a bit annoying) then the only things you couldn't do with just the mouse would be to open the menu, journal or goal list.

That sounds like a good idea.

Every sorrow she can mend.
When I visit her dark realm,
Does it simply overwhelm.

Ok maybe that is just me but there is one thing I would love to try,

and I can´t find a tool that does it:


I want to switch mouse functions mousewheel with forward and back.


Right now the mousewheel is zoom in/out.

and forward/ back is camera up/down.

If I could switch them I would have a camera at a steady hight controlled by mousewheel.

witch should  feel much more like a steadycam not a drunken drone pilot.


I searched mouse tools with this function without success.

And I´ m absolutly convinced this would be a better control setting than the standard one for this game.
