Middle Mouse as Second Left Click...

Hello, everyone... :mellow:

Prior to Jagex's release of the RT5 (RuneTek5) game/graphical engines, the middle mouse button acted as a second left-click. This was rather nice, and extremely useful, as I could spare my left mouse button for all those drag&drop operations and the insane ton of non-RuneScape things that I couldn't use a middle mouse button to do instead. :^_^:

Then came the RT5 update, and such awesome functionality went away. The middle mouse button became totally non-functional in RuneScape. This rapidly brought me upset and depression, as it meant that what I had trained my hands and mind to do was no longer valid. Worse, this meant that my middle button started to become underused again, and my left button severely overused. (And geez, I'm a FireFox user!!!) IMO, Jagex has gone and made one of the worst mistakes they could make, both financially and physically speaking. With this change, now a person's left mouse button wears out just that much more quickly. Plus, when it does, the person using the mouse has to buy a new mouse to continue using their computer properly, because that button is a staple necessity on today's computers. :(

Well, I've hit the point where I'm ticked off and won't stand for it anymore. So I've written this thread. The question is, who all of you share my opinion on this issue? Who all of you want back the ability to make your computer's mouse live much longer than it was once thought it could? WHO ELSE HERE, LIKE ME, IS TICKED OFF ENOUGH TO SUPPORT AND HELP ME GET THE POINT ACROSS TO JAGEX?!?!? :angry:

Wow wow wow, there was really a function for the middle mouse button!? Really? I didn't ever knew about that... It didn't represent a problem at all being used to the LMB. However it may be nice to use it.

Same I never knew!

Why would they remove that though lol? It makes no sense. I support bringing it back though, as long as it doesn't create some strange unforseen problem.

Can I consider that a "support"? :huh:

they may have taken it out with good reason - they might use it in the future with the new skill? and... scrolling sounds vaguely familiar to ... SAILING!!!!@!@$!
Just kidding.

I have no problem with this getting added back in the game... you can add me to your supporters list here. Let us know when your RSOF post is created, and I'll add my support there as well.

I've updated the supporter list here, and put up the RSOF mirror! Please put your support both here, and there as well, so Jagex can see it more easily! :thumbsup:

Also, I've updated the thread subtitle on this forum slightly... It just didn't sound right... :wacko:

(BTW, don't ask people who use IRC for added support... They don't get the point...)

Yes, please I support.

Before the update I used the left mouse button and middle mouse button equally.

Never used the middle click, nor did I know it worked as a LMB. I guess I support.

That does sound like a useful function to add restore.

Kicking this thread back to page 1... I've still got a little to sort out. :cool:

I'll also import some notes from the RSOF mirror soon... :idea:

A few weeks ago I remembered the functionality it used to serve and attempted using it again only to find that it no longer works. I would like to see it returned to the same functionality as a left-click.

Feel free to add me to the Supporters list.

My relaxation method involves a bottle of lotion, beautiful women, and partial nudity. Yes I get massages.
