It'd be like making all the black keys on the piano keyboard level with the white ones.  I use the feel of those to know where my hands are and I use that little bit of separation on my mouse to keep my fingers on the right buttons :P

That's a pretty accurate analogy. For that reason, I prefer Windows mice.

I'd love it if cycling through actions could be done with the scroll wheel.

AGDI does this, and I like it except for some reason the icons scroll the same direction whether you move the mouse wheel up or down, which is annoying if you scroll too far.

If scrolling down progressed through the icons forward and scrolling up progressed through them backwards, that would be ideal, imo.

Enjoying the game so far. One thing I'd like to suggest and/or plead to the developers that should be brought back is the ability that all old Sierra games had. When you click the middle-button on the mouse it would automatically switch from whatever cursour is currently active to the walk cursour and if you pressed it again it would go back to the cursour you previously had active. I know it's too late for episode 1, but is it at all possible this function could be implemented into the future episodes? Please? It's very handy and I find myself missing it very much.

Excellent work, you guys.

Don't remember that at all. Remember W A S D on the keyboard like all adventure games did. (psst. It works in this game too!) :)

Except for the oldest text-based ones.  WASD couldn't have worked on those, just arrow keys.  But that's getting back into the earlier KQ games.

Quite correct, Wilco! :)  As an old die hard adventure gamer here, I'm having a blast reading these forums. Quite a few newbies to adventure games here. Sure hope you guys help bring the genre back into the fore front so we can get some companies putting out more of them. :)

We love your playthroughs here! If you go in the archives, I think there's a discussion on our favorite LPers and you came up a lot!

Since I'm unable to play Episode Two, I was wondering if this feature I requested ever made it into the game.

For Episode 2 it didn't, we did remember that you had brought it up but were working mostly on things that a lot more people had mentioned so we didn't get around to this one.  We'll take a better look at it for 3 (and if we make it work in 3 it'll work retroactively for 1 and 2 as well).

yeah, we should be able to put that it for this next episode. We just had too many features to test last episode.

Yes, Apple mice now have 2 buttons. Aesthetically, Apple mice still have one button, but you can click on the left and rights sides of it (left or right clicks).
Thank goodness. At least they're approaching some sense with their mouse. I couldn't stand how they only had one button; drove me crazy.

On topic, I never realized this function existed. I always just cycled through the cursors. Then again, I never had a three-button mouse until a few years ago, which is probably part of the reason. :P

So what if I am, huh? Anyways, I work better when I'm drunk. It makes me fearless! If I see a bad guy, I'll just point my sword at him and saaaaaaaaaay, "Hey! Bad guy! You're not s'posed to be here! Go home or I'll stick you with my sword 'til you go, 'Ouch! I'm dead!' Ah-ha-ha!" Ha-ha. *hic* See? Ain't no one gonna be messin' wit' ol', Benny!

Can you? I've never tried it. Any time I used a Mac, though, the owner always had an Apple one-button mouse hooked up to it.

Yes, provided it's standard USB. I use a Windows mouse on my Mac whenever I have to do freehand selections or drawings in Photoshop.
