Well, I see no need for this topic to go on...since it can't be implemented in-game (without lots of trouble).

At least we have one easy thing that Ertxiem suggested:   In battle, we click on the next square to move to.  

Since all battles use the same engine, and since we already move one square at a time with keyboard input, I expect that it's easy to add mouse input.

I guess it's ultimately up to Craig to say what's easy to implement and what isn't.

Cool down, mezzoforte. No need to get personal. Cypher is just giving his opinion.

Thank You.

Sorry we hurt your brain.  :(  I guess it's ultimately up to Craig to say what's easy to implement and what isn't.
@Mezzoforte: That's true, but I have a good notion.

Cypher, I was and am in agreement with you!  It's just that your comment was very general, and I wasn't sure if you were directing it also at the idea of being able to move in battle by clicking on the next square.  It seems to me that it is a small change from pressing one arrow key at a time.

What is your feeling/notion about that being implemented?

What is wrong with the arrow keys?  I don't see the alternative as better.

My suggestion is that the player could use the arrow keys or the mouse (or both :) ).
Expanding on what I said before, the arrow keys work perfectly, so there isn't a real need to use the mouse for movement. It was just a suggested feature by mezzoforte with a few contributions from all of us.

This won't be making it in to TSoG, but I wouldn't be surprised to see this in the Telepath game that comes after it. ;)

Topic locked. Craig said it all! :)

I moved the discussion about the new TRPG to New TRPG game.
