Old scroll problem is back

Post by MikeM » 07 Apr 2019 22:19

I am sorry, but the old left mouse button scroll problem is back, in the Version 1.9.0. I downgrade back to version 1.8.0 again. :|

And what, exactly, is the "old scroll problem"? https://github.com/OpenTTD/OpenTTD/issues is the correct place for bug reports, by the way.

Hi Peter,

I think he means that fact the in 1.9 the option "Reverse scroll direction" has just disappeared! :shock:
To be honest I'm surprised that nobody saw this while the beta tests. Mike and I can't be the only people who use this, can we!? :?

Please bring this option back since I really can't get used to play the other way... :(

Here a screenshot from 1.8:

What of these do I have to choose when I want to invert the scroll direction? :?

If you currently have map move choose viewport move. And vice versa.

It solves the problem, change the viewport scroll behavior. I was just confused because, I have seen the problem after a windows update.

Maybe it should have "scroll" in the name, so it can still be found easy.

Well, it does. The setting name is "Viewport scroll behaviour".

Hi All

On version 1.8.0 there is a separate button for enabling the *Left* mouse button scroll, and separate options for Right button. It now looks like on 1.9.1 the options have been combined into one drop down - so its "either or".

I used to use both buttons depending on what I was doing - I find the left button more "natural" to point with but it also selects. The right is better when the landscape is very occupied. Hope that all made sense as I am a Newbie on here.
