Game "freezing" when mouse is moved

Post by Munwele » Thu Mar 31, 2016 4:31 am

Honestly, I am tired of this crap.

Game installed fine, and runs VERY smooth.
All menus are working correctly.
But, when I go to a mission and move the mouse the game freezes. Strangely enough, when I press a key on the keyboard the game unfreezes and the mouse movement happens, and happens fast. This freezing also happens when I click the mouse buttons.
Nothing wrong with the keyboard though.

Specs are as follows:
CPU: Pentium 3 Slot 1 @ 300MHz
RAM: 128MB
PSU: 230 Watts
GRAPHICS CARD: S3 VIRGE/DX
FLOPPY DRIVE
44x CD-ROM DRIVE

The mouse I'm using is a Microsoft serial mouse, if that helps.
If someone can help, I'd really appreciate it.

EDIT: I've replaced both the keyboard and mouse, and the problem is still present.

Are you playing in DosBox? There have always been problems with the mouse in the Dos version of the game. I would suggest using the keyboard, as that seems to be the option that works best for you.

No, I am playing it on Windows 95. Playing with the keyboard is not an option, too much crap to press and I just don't feel comfortable with just it.
