Man is it ever a gorgeous day around here today!
I'm quite happy with the new Battlefield 1942 patch, and the new Invasion of the
Philippines map is a lot of fun. I am terribly disappointed, however, to see
that a bug that was introduced with the last patch remains, and I cannot
configure the mouse wheel for the functions I would like to assign to it. Is it
a standards issue that causes mouse wheel support to be so flaky in games all
these years after the doohickeys were first devised? The only such thing I find
nearly as vexing is the occasional game that still manages to not support the
numeric keypad to input numbers. The devil is in the details, and these are a
couple of controller details that need an exorcism.
