You can use the keyboard instead of the mouse...wait i get what you mean. Hmm....well maybe they can make it so you can tab option or something...guess elven will have to answer this one or another one of the programmers. Thanks for your comments though. Keep them coming :)

I think I know what you mean with targetting the monsters, for targetting the tile coordinate is used. So when the monster is moving your mousepointer may be over the monster, but not over the tile. This will be changed because I think we're leaving the whole tile-based idea.

As for what you say about a slow mouse and a normal mouse... it works more then fine with me. So I have no idea what you are talking about.

Hmm, clearly he makes a difference between the normal mouse of his window manager and the mouse drawn by the game. Indeed, with a low framerate the ingame mouse pointer is laggy and harder to use.

It is perfectly possible to add an option to the configuration about whether to use draw the custom mouse cursor or to use the system one, and I think it'd be a good idea to get this option in for the next version.

Modanung answered the other point I think. Everybody will agree that at the moment walking monsters are easily missed using mouse.

Ho now, I mean I have respect for what you ask but don't compare this nice cursor by Jimmac with the indeed quite ugly Windows XP cursor.
