I started playing left4dead 2 today on my iMac with the magic mouse. I love the game, however, with the touch sensitive mouse it sometimes scrolls through the weapons at the most inconvenient times.

I use q to switch but is there a way to disable the scrolling switch?

Go into Options, Edit Keys and Buttons, scroll down to combat, and clear the Next Weapon/ Previous Weapon.

Do yourself a huge favor and get a 4 button mouse (trackball if you can find a decent one) with scroll wheel. Both Kensington and Logitech have Mac programmable software.

Thanks, I may well invest in one. The magic mouse is great, imho, but not so much when it comes to games. Although it certainly isn't bad now I have disabled the mouse scroll.

Agreed. The magic mouse sucks for gaming. Get a corded Logitech Gaming or MX mouse and you'll be very happy. :)

Yes it sucks, but that doesn't stop me from kicking ass with it :cool:
