    Hey All, brand new MacBook Pro and I've installed bootcamp/Windows in order to play SWTOR.

    Thing is.. I'm trying to play it with only trackpad (instead of a mouse). I'm playing in bed and I don't have a lot of space for a mouse.

    I have all the bootcamp drivers and all that installed but for some reason when I play the game I can't right click... a two finger tap is supposed to be right click. It works in Windows but not in the game?

    Any able to use the trackpad for this?

    Had the same problem in bootcamp since I've had my Macbook Pro (Early 2011). Just gonna have to use a mouse.

    Found this on another site..

    "As alt-clicking and control-clicking have their own separate meanings under Windows, single-button trackpads under Boot Camp require a different click than under OS X: rest two fingers on the trackpad and click, under Boot Camp. "

    I only play it through Parallels, so I of course don't have that issue... but if its working in Windows (secondary click with 2 fingers enable din Bootcamp in the Control Panel), but stops working in game... there might not be much you can do about it. I have found it really hard to play with a trackpad anyways... if I'm playing and in bed I use one of these... I've gamed with them for years so... it takes some learning, but works good....

    For complete game satisfaction, completely remove the concept of gaming with a trackpad out of your head. :)
