Unable to map MWheelUp=+lookup

Postby Phoebe Crennersit » Mon May 30, 2022 3:21 am

Hello and thanks for the help,
I'd like to use the mouse-wheel to look-up and look-down.

In lzdoom.ini under "[Doom.Bindings]", I've tried changing to:
It failed

Within the game, I've also tried customizing the "look up" and "look down" actions to map to the mouse wheel.
Unfortunately, it also failed.

I can successfully map "+lookup" and "+lookdown" to keys, but not to "MWheelUp" and "MWheelDown".
So I assume that I'm doing something wrong.

I'd appreciate guidance.
Thank you.

You can't do that in old GZDoom versions, must be an old bug.

You cannot bind the mouse wheel to 'button' actions (i.e. the ones starting with '+'.)
These require a key to be held down, but the mouse wheel cannot be held down so these buttons never register as 'pressed'.
