DOS programmers did a lot of funny stuff with mouse implementation back in the day. In Ultima Underworld, you need to adjust manual mouse correction under Advanced settings -> Manual correction. IIRC, it’s 640×240 (don’t ask me why…). 🙂
Wow. Thanks a lot, Al-ex! That helped. At least a little… There are many quirks to this. 🙂
I followed your suggestion and it worked better, but it was still not quite reliable. I then added a Black Magic/Mouse Reset as the first element in my deadly strike, and now it seems to work properly. I’ll test it a little more.
By the way, I published my design to Might And Magic: World of Xeen here, if anyone is interested.
I haven’t gotten around to Win95 yet. I looked at the tutorial and it seems easy enough. I guess I must clear some room on my tablet first. 😊
There is much to learn here. I started working on Worlds of Ultima: The Savage Empire, using relative mouse like I use to. But then I discovered that it seems to be perfectly playable using absolute mouse. This will make the design much simpler and more intuitive.
