stuck in sam and max...

Post by kdc »

hi,

I've searched through the forums but cant seem to find an answer,

I'm stuck in sam and max where you are in the restaurant atop the ball of twine and you need to control the binoculars, I cant get it to change direction, according to gamefaqs you need to left click to pan left and right click to pan right. but its constantly moving left and no matter what I try to map left and right click to I cannot change the direction.

any ideas? anyone else stuck here?

C'è bisogno di cliccare col destro, non so se il port per palmari abbia una scorciatoia per simulare il clic destro.

EDIT: you need to use the right click, if i remebre correctly. dunno if the palm port has a right click option.

I don't know about this htc p3600, but playing the Linux version of ScummVM, I can right- or left-click on the lever, between where the two cables are connected.

If it's the "how does one right click in the ce version" question (and I'm gambling here that this must have been self-addressed, judging by the inactivity in this thread) then I can refer you to the very nice supplementary to the port document, also known as the README-WinCE.txt file, which enumerates two distinct methods for achieving the desired result, namely right clicking. I reiterate them here for your convenience: 1) Bind and use the "Right Click" action. 2) Double tap at the desired point on screen.

If it is a "keyboard not responding well" question, I refer you to the bug tracker.

Yours,
Kostas
