    Hiya, i bought this game today after meaning to for ages. After installing it, and playing for about 2 minutes, the mouse jammed, in respect to it all worked, other than the buttons. None of the buttons would work at all. In attempt to mend this, i restarted WC3 and the problem kept reoccuring. Shortly after, i figured minimizing it regained use of the buttons. However, they keep crashing out ever 40 seconds, and it's getting really irritiating. Anyone have any idea's/experience?

    The mouse im using isn't an 'average one', in that its got 2 scrolling buttons (top-bottom, left-right, and a 3rd thumb button which is programmable).
    ps I've emailed blizzard (game producers)
  2. And you

    - are using what operating system ?
    - Have downloaded the latest mousedrivers and installed them ?
    - have all updates for your operating system installed ?
    - have the latest firmware for your bios installed ?
    - checked the blizzard website for updates / bugfixes ?


    these are all factors that can cause the problem..

    Sorry to be ignorant, but would installing Direct x 8 (i think it was) count? Just that it installed that when i loaded up the cd before i could begin to put the game on.

    ...I wish it was all good :( never have these troubles with a snes :mad:
