    Hello,

    I recently started playing WC III TFT again. Runs perfectly on my MBP in Mac OS X, as one would expect.

    Some issues, though:

    1. Mouse acceleration.

    The mouse acceleration in OS X is very different from Windows and not suited for gaming at all -- well, at least not a fast paced RTS like WC III which relies heavily on micro management. I found a half decent fix in the program SteerMouse. Any other way around this without running Bootcamp/WinXP?

    2. Playing with the MBP keyboard.

    Grouping units/buildings, CTRL + 1/2/3/4 and so on, is difficult on the MBP keyboard: The CTRL button just isn't very "reachable" and easy to press down on while at the same time pressing 1/2/3/4/5 etc. It would be a lot easier if you could use the CMD button instead of the CTRL button. Is this possible?

    Thanks, people

    Invest in a keyboard and mouse. MPB keyboard is great for typing Word documents but playing games without a numberpad? I don't think so.
