    my middle mouse click doesn't work, I can scroll but not click, and I can't seem to find an option to change that to something else so I can see more than one side of a planet. If it is unmappable and not changeable should I simply get a refund or something?

    Middle mouse doesn't work in general, or just in this game?

    I have a mod that will make a keyboard key do it.

    I'm sorry I thought it was clear enough, I was wrong. My middle mouse button on my mouse is broken. It just doesn't work. Not just in this game, in general. Scrolling works but clicks don't so I can't control the camera in the game with it. I don't get why you would need dxdiag for that. If it's possible (It's a razer naga) I can just map it on the side keys.

    Sounds like you need a new mouse.

    Ok yeah maybe but in other games I can easily overcome this hindrance by simply mapping whatever thing they assigned to middle mouse button to something else. That should be doable right? You're not exactly helping by saying that I need a new mouse and since I don't really miss the middle click THAT much I'd rather stick with my otherwise-good mouse until it dies. Just tell me please, is there a way to assign another button for the camera control? If not, why can't we have customisation?

    You can have mods, use the one linked by wondible.

    mwreynolds aren't you "special" :) Why are you guys so overly defensive? Just answer the question if you're kind enough or don't reply- like reasonable people. I mean what the hell there's a missing basic customisation element in the game that you're so defensive about and all you do is attacking someone who just asked a question. You may like the game but you don't have to like the things it misses. Is this a pitiful attempt to troll or not understanding how forums work?

    Thanks for the meaningful answers though, I guess I'll try my luck with mods.

    Sorry for my post, it just seems odd to complain about not being able to remap a main mouse button just because you have a broken mouse. And as you can see thee is a mod you can use always.

    Seriously you should get a new mouse, the game it meant to be played using the middle mouse button.
    Playing it with remapped keys is going to be painful.

    Have you seen that mouse? There is like a billion buttons on it (expensive too). Who cares if one button is broken. :)

    And yeah, it's one of those odd quirks in PA where you can remap all of the keys, but non of the mouse buttons. Also some people like different set-ups. More customization is a good thing. Fortunately mods exist.

    (I wouldn't call your posts "trolling" though. That seems like a bit of an overreaction just for suggesting to buy a new mouse because the current one is broken.)

    I'm not surprised a button is broken as the mouse is made by Razer. Their products are still pretty good though when they work... my Orbweaver is absolutely fantastic :p

    Well yeah I read that a lot, their build quality is not perfect. It lasted 3 years without failure and was exactly what I needed when I was playing WoW though so I wouldn't call it disastrous. Also, if one button goes bad there's still plenty more to use anyway :p

    it's overpriced average make. I don't recommend Razer nor Roccat.

    t button for Track (Default binding) :) I use it all the time in my pip to follow important units, or in casts so that the audience can.
