Hello, and welcome to what I think is a crazy problem to have in a game. "Scrolling"http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gifits a problem, why? I don't have a scroller. I have a marble mouse without one. Never had this problem in a game before. Kinda sucks knowing you can't play the game correctly because of a game that requires a scroller to "ROTATE BUILDINGS!", I have use the roads to get by.....until, the castle gate. Game pretty much sucks when you can't build the castle gate to defend yourself. well, can't build it without having the gate facing always in the set and wrong direction needed it to be.

I mean really what kind of shortcut does that? What is the regular way???? If you have a shortcut then their is another way...RIGHT? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blink.gif

I mean I even tried using cruise scrolling to get it to rotate on my mouse. I can't understand it. I'm not going to buy a crappy mouse with a scroller just to play one game. I'm planning on returning it due to how stupid the problem is. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

Why couldn't they just have make it shift+insert? I mean insert already rotate the map. just add shift to it. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

They could of at least left an option to change the shortcut keys. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/bigtears.gif

Anyone know a way around this? http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/sadeyes.gif

Unfortunately, there doesn't look to be any way around the rotating buildings, without a wheel mouse.

You could always use AutoHotkey (http://www.autohotkey.com/) to simulate a scroll-wheel.

It'd be pretty simple. Download and install the above. (It's free.) Now open up your favorite text editor (or Notepad) and enter the following:

<pre class="ip-ubbcode-code-pre">
PgUp::WheelUp
PgDn::WheelDown
</pre>

Save it as MouseWheel.ahk (...to your desktop, perhaps, for convenience). Now double-click on the file to launch it. Now play the game.

Now in-game, your PageUp/PageDown keys should act like a ScrollUp/ScrollDown. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif


It may require a little tweaking (like adding a MouseDelay or something.)

Or better, on their site is already a script to make your Numpad act like a mouse. Just use it. No fuss, no muss. You can find it here (http://www.autohotkey.com/docs/scripts/NumpadMouse.htm).

OMG, THankyou, I have manages to waste a lot of stone building funky castle walls and because of the gate.

Before I read megg, I tried a different kinda autokey program and it failed...I was pissed...But this worked...I knew I was on the right track but gave up to soon.

THANKYOU!!!!

This should be a sticky to help everyone who doesn't have a scroller.

I would like to take the credit for helping you, but it wasn't me. All.Names.Taken gave the AutoHotkey advice. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
