Yep I have the same problem with PSX version:

Tried different versions of ePSXe and a few SoTHR disk images. Can't get mouse work ingame, only keyboard controls, despite the fact that I select mouse/digital control..Actually I tried all possible ones.

Could anyone help me out? A solution or a link to a 100% working emulator/image would suffice Smiley

P.S.
And another (minor) thing
I tried to play with keyboard only...managed to pass the first mission but of course it won't be playable once missions get harder.
Anyways, I am curious as how to zoom in/out using the keyboard in PSX version. I only figured out how to rotate the screen to change view angle.

There is no mouse support with emulators (that i currently know of) however, works fine with my xbox joypad, so plays like original PSX version.

Smiley


ps.


Keyboard controls = V to skip intro and Z to select options Esc twice to exit

w,S,A,D to move around or Arrow Keys and V to Pause (overhead map pauses game and is good to do all troop movements and attacks before resuming realtime)

I see,
well, I wish I had an xbox gamepad or anything Smiley

Actually, I only wanted to pass a few certain missions but not the whole campaign.

I need a PC or a PSX SotHR savegame pack that would allow me to open the missions I need to check for my Chaos Dwarf campaign.

Does any of the comunity members have such a pack? or probably you can email those currently inactive members who are likely to have sothr savegames?

This help would be definitely appreciated Smiley

Hey everyone,

Maybe that is the place where I can find some answers. Well, I played the PC version and there was not even single soldier of reinforcements through all Carsson's missions and the whole road to Zhufbar, making the game even more challenging. I suppose that is the main difference between PC and console version I've seen some walkthrough guide for the console, and it has mentioned about 8 or so reinforcements after Vanberg mission or something.

That is the reason I want to try console version, but I struggle with emulator. My question is: How on earth can I make mouse and keyboard controlls to work? I configured all the option and use  F6 + F5 combination, but to no result. I can't even skip the game intro and since the coursor is in default put on the load game option I can't do anything othere than watching intro movie again and again. Please help me.

Thanks

Thanks for the answer

I've tried Your combination. Nothing works. Like the game just can't recognize the keyboard. Hmmm, maybe You can tell me of your controlls configuration? Which port and which option etc. And really, I can't imagine playing such fast and hard game without mouse. How can You switch fast between units during battle?

Remember I play using an Xbox game pad plugged into my PC running ePSXe 1.7.0

* SOTHResPX.jpg (64.12 KB. 633x498 - viewed 324 times.)



Keyboard controls

Arrow keys for movement like mouse
S+D+X+Z to scroll HUD buttons
E+T to scroll through the enemy
W+R to scroll through your troops
V to skip intro Start/Pause game
Z to select like Enter and hold down Z for Camera and use W and R to rotate and still holding Z press both W+R  together for zoom in or E+R together for zoom out
Esc twice to exit
C = Overhead map (use W+R and E+T to scroll through enemy and your own troops). Overhead map pauses game and is good to do all troop movements and attacks before resuming real time)

You could try a mouse + keyboard mapping tool and map the movement arrow keys to become the mouse directions and other buttons, perhaps.

By the way, is there a kind of army editor for SoTHR?
I remember I tried to edit stuff in a hex editor when I was a kid. But not everything I wanted to do worked well.
But as far as I can remember there was a tool to edit your army or at least instructions how to edit in hex editor somewhere...

Yeah the files used to be text, at least partially.
But the thing is to be able to edit all those flags: regiment is active, encountered, not encountered, unit_id etc.
I was about to drag my bro back to warhammer. He said he would play SoTHR but he does not want to play same army: Schepke infantry, Fletcher Xbows etc.
And I am not quite sure how to correctly give him dwarves from the beginning, add one of 2 latter wizards earlier etc and not break the game.
