Easy way to emulate rightclicks?

Post by fetito666 » Tue Mar 22, 2016 6:04 am

Hello!

Right now I have a Samsung S3 smartphone and I was able to run Eye of the Beholder.

But attacking the enemies is quite fuzzy.

Is there a way to do easier right clicks?

If your device support multitouch, yes. See:

Thank you!

Can I re-assign the button for the right mouse button on the tablet?

The necro topic is still in question in EoB.

I’m thinking about just swapping right and left mouse in the item-in-hand area on a tablet. Otherwise, whenever I fight, I end up taking swords from my characters’ hands instead of hitting with them.

I’ll see if I can make a clean hack for this.

Any updates?

Just came across the EOB issue myself and lo and behold there's a topic here.

But I think the real issue is that simulating right mouse button clicks the current way is just sketchy.

Right mouse button clicks should be implemented instead with double taps. So quickly tapping the same spot within a short period of time.
Check out the gestures in Magic DosBox; this same thing is implemented ideally there.

I've always been a fan of tap+hold.
