Indiana Jones games feasable to play on laptop?

Post by Orusaka »

I've been wanting to give the two Indiana Jones games a try, but upon reading further about them today, I noticed they have a fighting element to them using the numpad. Now, I use a laptop, and naturally don't have said numpad. Is it feasable to play without one?

many/most(?) laptops have a "num lock" function, usually activated by one of the f-keys, sometimes while holding the "fn" key or similar. this makes a section of the laptop's keys act as if they were the numeric keypad. i just played through fate of atlantis on my macbook using this feature for the fighting :)

Hmm. This is true; I had forgotten about this feature. It won't have the same neatness of the layout as numpad, but it might do the trick. If it worked for you, it should work for me, I guess. Thank you for you help.

It's also possible to play the fight sequences with the mouse.
