Scrolling in the ControlPanel with scrollwheel doesn't work

Post by WorldOfTanks23 » Mon Jul 27, 2020 2:58 pm

It doesn't scroll downwards, only upwards it seem. I always have to use the PageDown to scroll to the end.

I'd like the scrollwheel to work correctly on the ControlPanel messages

Information regarding both OS and BZFlag version would be helpful.

Check your config file and look for 'scrollpanel' to find what key bindings are there for it. On my config I have wheel bound to firing.

If you previously set the mouse wheel to be for shooting, you may need to reset the key bindings to return the mouse wheel function for scrolling the control panel.

While I have left button and wheel up set to fire I can still scroll up/down smoothly with touchpad (if you are using a notebook): keep a finger quiet an move the other. (Not sure if you can set more than 2 keys/controls for an action, also (by config file).)
