Is the retail version like the demo?

I have a question in which I need a speedy answer. I downloaded the demo after ordering Overlord and discovered that the mouse is limited in use, with most of the game confined to the keyboard. I hate using anything but the mouse to move my player around a game and normally use the left mouse button to use a weapon. Using keys for other than this is fine. I couldnot change the settings to use the mouse in the demo but, this might be different in the retail version. What I need to know is if, the same method of moving the player is the same in the retail version as the demo and, if it is can the forward key, etc., be shifted to use say the right mouse button instead of the "W" to move forward. I haven't opened the shipping carton yet and I can return it for a refund unopened. No questions asked. That's why I need a quick answer. If I cannot move my player using the mouse, (I am soley and thoroughly mouse oriented,) I will return the game for a refund or trade it for something else. Would some one whom has the game please help me with this? Thanks a million and cheers to all, GGaius10

well, you could probably move your player via mouse....I GUESS, but you still have to control your minions using some button...like left click would send them, right click would call them back, and both would sweep... Wonder if thats possible. also 1 is browns, 2 is reds, 3 is greens, and 4 is blues...you can't change that really...you can use scroll. also, f1-f12 are used for selecting spells.. So,no matter what, you have to used a keyboard.

Technically, yes you can. BUT you'll most likely need a gaming mouse which has more than 4 buttons. So, its possible.


Plus, if u have a 360 controller, you can use that instead. But, some of the options are limited. Hope that helped.

My thanks to you Brendon and the other player for answers to my question. I have decided to keep the game. Not because I think I'll like it that well but, because of the long delay it takes to ever get a refund on your credit card if such a refund is ever indeed shown. It astounds me that some companies, especially European ones tend to use the keyboard rather than the mouse for control of the central character. I've played many such games in which the mouse control was the force behind the character and while these did use the keyboard this did not include movement and use of weapons. If they want to use such controls they should confine these to game machines where they rightly belong and not to the PC. Anyhow thanks for the reply. I just hope I won't run into this when I pick up Two Worlds, and the super war game which will be released in September.

Keep keyboards to game machines? Since when have consoles had keyboards?

I think you'll find keyboard controls abound because that's what the majority of people are used to dealing with. You'd be hard pressed finding any FPS/3rd Person type games that are not WSAD by default, I can't remember playing one in a long time that wasn't.

The mouse also has other uses in this game, controlling it all without touching the keyboard would be cumbersome to most.

No worry, I forgot that stupid game months ago when World in Conflict came along, and then AOE 3, Universe at War and Sim City Societies. All I use the mouse for is to move forward. I use the keys for most of the other things. WarHammer 40000 never used WASD nor did Dark Crusade, and these are two of the best games I ever played. Most games allow you to modify the settings to where you can map the right mouse key as your forward movement, this one did not. But then again I bought it out of boredom and have found many other games to amuse me since then.
