    Mouse suggestion for mac client

    Im not sure if this is the best place, but I was wondering if i might put in a suggestion. In another mmo I played on mac they implemented the use of gestures in camera control side to side being a 2 finger side swipe, and up and down being 2 fingers up and down, zooming could be changed to a pinch zoom gesture. this would make playing on a macbook or with a magic trackpad much easier.

    Probably best to submit any suggestions to the Suggestions section where they are more likely to read it.

    One potential problem may be that others have noted issues even with swipe enabled on the trackpad. This is due to LOTRO never being truly Full Screen, rather it used a windowed full screen mode therefore the settings on the Finder desktop will also effect the mouse in game. Not sure exactly how it works as I don't have a Macbook or trackpad myself but maybe you can get gestures to work in LOTRO.

    Others may be able to confirm any issue or what is already possible.

    Not having a track-pad I don't know what the track-pad generates by way of code, but I would guess it is not "too foreign."

    I don't know for certain, however, I believe you can map the gestures to "classic" keyboard/mouse functions.

    Just a quick google "what does a track pad gesture generate" -- turned up:

    http://www.macworld.com/article/1157...padtricks.html

    and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Multitouch/AppleMagicTrackpad - about Linux, but see the section "Using Ginn for multi-touch gesture inputs"

    If you succeed in figuring this out, I'd love to include the information at LOTRO-Wiki.com's Mac Client section.
