hi all

I have a copy of XGold that I've had sitting on my shelf for a while now and since i was bored I decided to give X-Tension a go as I've never actually played it but I'm having a problem i installed and updated the game just fine the game loads and runs ok but i have no control for some reason it doesn't seem to like my USB optical mouse and when i move the mouse nothing happens

i don't think this is an issue with my mouse because it works fine with x2 and above so my question is how do I get XBTF and XT to work with my mouse ?

do i just need a serial mouse to play XBTF and XT

Maybe try using a USB to PS/2 adapter if you have one? Just as a temporary workaround of course.

Another possible tip; if playing in windowed mode, try it again in fullscreen then exit and restart the game.

I haven't played either X-BTF or X-Tension in over a decade, so I'm not sure about this since I only ever played them with a joystick, but do those X Gold games even support a mouse for controlling the player ship? I seem to remember that the originals didn't. The X Gold versions are also very old, but the newer ones available on Steam and GoG might.

The answer about the mouse in Gold and later versions of XBtF or XT seems to be 'Sometimes' or 'Yes with a bit of fiddling' or 'Yes, but it's sluggish'.
But then I guess I am only finding forum evidence posted by people that had problems. Laughing
