Great Moments in Flash Gaming

I am playing some adequate shooter, and I have reached the last level. Like most, you hold down the left mouse button to fire. This being the last level, I am firing continuously for … longer than I can admit to myself. Wave 9 of 13 complete, huzzah, I have this nailed! Shift my hand a bit because I’m getting sore…

My new mouse has these really useful buttons on the side, which default to back and forward in a web browser. Microsoft designed this mouse very well, so they are right at your fingertips. You barely even need conscious thought to use them.

Crap.

  1. If your mouse is well designed, as is my Logitech mouse, you can set the additional buttons to anything you want; for example, alt-left and alt-right, which will send you back and forward pages, but have no effect in most other cases – most importantly, in this case, they are ineffective in a flash window.

    I feel your pain, though. Those extra buttons are nifty, but the price you pay is often high =)

  2. One of my friends has assigned those buttons to his three dps-spam spells for easy raiding. I would do the same if I didn’t need five buttons for it.
