Nope, neither worked on this laptop. So it must be the BIOS, I assume. However, I did play for a bit on the P4's real (optical) mouse, and it worked well (left = shoot, right = strafe, middle = open). The only annoyance is constantly picking up the mouse to move forward. It's a very funny mod (ahem, replacement for knife == hilarious when you run out of ammo!)

BTW, I didn't yet have a suitable conversion of my FASTPAQ2.s to NASM (OBJ-friendly) for OpenWatcom (since I usually prefer GCC), so my paq8f compile on the Wolfxmas disk is NOASM only (no MMX or SSE2 enabled). Not a huge deal, esp. since all my machines either don't support such or are already "fast enough." Still, if I were to more publicly announce this disk, I would replace it (already fixed/recompiled paq8f locally). Also, -oxs vs. -ox seems only very very slightly slower and 2k smaller. (I also kept relocs for ultimate compatibility.) Just FYI. :-P
