I just installed the Doom Collection and it runs fine with one exception; there's no mouse support.

Does anyonw know if there's a fix to this? Playing with the keyboard is agonizing to say the least.

FYI - I'm running XP and the mouse option under "Confiuration" is enabled.

You'll want one of the Windows-based source ports if you have to use XP.

Will Doom3D 1.16 work?

There are so many to choose from. I have no idea where to start.

Try ZDoom or Legacy. They seem to be the standards.

Zdoom will allow mouse support on windows XP, so will Legacy i think.

Use zdoom. Legacy does not specifically support XP yet.

Why does every one hate Legacy so much? I've never had a problem with it, even on XP. I think it's equal to everything else. Doomsday(jDoom) is still my favorite, though ;-)

If you want a game that is as close to the original as possible, pick prBoom. All the goodies with none of the gimmicks that DOOM doesn't have (i.e., mouselook, jump etc).
Or better yet, dual boot.

Don't ask questions you don't have a spare hour to hear the answers to, kiddo.
