i'd like to play DXB2 on my laptop and the i have one of those stick mouse controls. i'd prefer to play w/the arrow buttons and the spacebar on the keyboard rather than the mouse. there don't seem to be any control options and i don't see any in the config files. i just got the new rival ball game and this seems to be the same case...

can anyone offer any help on this? TIA.

You can set ther mouse to the Num pad if you have a windows, but it still moves really slow.

I suggest that you don't play DX-BALL2 without the mouse. The keyboard is too slow to register the movement and the ball will just cruise right by the paddle and kill you.

You could always just attach a mouse to your computer...I would get an optical mouse...they'll work on just about any surface (don't work well on transparent mouse pads).

i have a mouse attached but when you're on a plane and the only space you have is the little food tray it's not a lot of room to move a mouse...

There's always those mini mice...they're a lil smaller than your palm...

Also...If you have enough money for it and can find it somewhere...there are devices that read to movement of your eyes to see where you are looking and will move the cursor to where you are looking on the screen...BlueEyes I think is the name...I don't know if it's out yet...I don't think it is...
