My People Won't Move

Postby GrindelWitch » Tue Oct 30, 2012 1:01 am

This may be a silly question, but I don't think it should be this hard. When I create a new game I click on a person and click on a room to tell them to move, but they never move. This happened in both the tutorial and the actual game. Regular and right-clicking don't work. I am on a Macbook Pro, and using control-click to right click. Nothing I do gets them moving. I can click on the systems and pause the game just fine, and even jump to other systems. Does anyone know how to fix this?

The crew member controls are a bit unintuitive.

It should be left-click to select the person (you can also left-lick in the list of crew members on the left-side of the screen), and then right-click in a room that has at least on square empty of crew members.

Are you sure you are doing that?

Would it be possible to change the mouse behaviour? I know the iMacs have the option to enable a "proper" right click, but have no experience with MacBooks. It shouldn't matter since it's OS based. Check your system preferences to see if you can change your settings.

Maybe other Mac users can chime in as well.

Ctrl+Click for Mac is relatively recent (newest version of FTL), are you sure you're up to date? The version number is in the bottom left corner of the main menu when you start FTL.

Did you try a mouse?

Sorry for the delayed response on the forums. Possible that you got this working already anyway?
