G_Beee's Wheel (in Changelog)

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] October 26 2005 6:22 PM EDT

Yes, you heard it here first. The mousewheel now controls opponents on left nav bar in Mozilla based browsers, just like IE!

Inferno October 26 2005 6:24 PM EDT

Doesn't work :S

Ilovehellokitty October 26 2005 6:26 PM EDT

April's Fool ?

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] October 26 2005 6:33 PM EDT

There was a glitch in the matrix, please try again.

AdminJonathan October 26 2005 6:33 PM EDT

Okay, _now_ it works.

Refresh sidebar first, of course.

AdminG Beee October 26 2005 6:34 PM EDT

Well done, I'm impressed. Thanks !

And a changelog with my name in it too :)

Inferno October 26 2005 6:34 PM EDT

I like it? small change. But it'll help lol

WeaponX October 26 2005 6:39 PM EDT

i like it

QBJohnnywas October 26 2005 6:40 PM EDT

Thank you thank you thank you! I missed the ability to do this once I made the switch to FF.

BTW, when I delete opponents from my favourite it used to refresh the list back to the top opponent. Now it puts it at the opponent who was just above the deleted one. Is this a bug or a feature?

QBJohnnywas October 26 2005 6:42 PM EDT

Thanks boss ;)

AdminQBVerifex [Serenity In Chaos] October 26 2005 6:48 PM EDT

You want it to go to the top after a delete? That always annoyed me, that's why I'm glad it is the way it is now. :)

QBJohnnywas October 26 2005 6:59 PM EDT

No, I like it like this. It makes sense for those times when you're organising your fightlist after a strat change for instance. Like I am at the moment, which is why I noticed it! It had always irritated me before, especially when the person you just deleted was at the bottom of the list....

Tiny details but they add up. Thanks!

bartjan October 26 2005 7:16 PM EDT

Works, but only when mouse hovers over the side bar, not when it's on this frame.

AdminG Beee October 26 2005 7:17 PM EDT

Wouldn't it be nice too if after you've just deleted someone and then hit the enter button to start fighting again it didn't actually delete the next person in line.
If I had a $ for every time I've cleared a couple of names of my list that I didn't want to I'd have enough to rival the highest NW players in the game :)

Of course - cake and eat it spring to mind so let me just say I'm happy with this change as it is and leave it at that. :)

Maelstrom October 26 2005 7:23 PM EDT

Very nice! I love that "delete" doesn't take us to the top anymore!

Can you change it to do the same for the "favoritify" button? That you go to the next opponent after you "favoritify" an opponent, instead of going to the top?

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] October 26 2005 7:34 PM EDT

i was just about to resond with what G_Beee said.


AdminJonathan October 26 2005 8:32 PM EDT

it would be less intuitive to make enter mean "fight" instead of "submit."

YNM October 26 2005 9:36 PM EDT

Ah now IE has nothing over firefox...

Special J October 26 2005 11:26 PM EDT

I just want to know why Firefox does not support this by default.

AdminJonathan October 27 2005 12:09 AM EDT

probably someone on the FF team thinks the wheel should always scroll the page itself

AdminNightStrike October 27 2005 12:18 AM EDT

I second Maelstrom's request.

Tezmac October 27 2005 1:02 AM EDT

Cool, we have scrolling stuff. Now lets get on to fixing that pesky MPR bug......aren't I just the nagging Nancy... :O)

Starseed^Lure October 27 2005 4:48 AM EDT

YES... I've been keeping an Explorer shortcut in my start menu, for this reason only... Now? no need! thanks Jon!

AdminShade October 27 2005 6:58 AM EDT

This is very cool, thanks Verifex, Jonathan and G Beee :)

AdminShade October 27 2005 11:49 AM EDT

perhaps a bug, perhaps not the feature but:

the scroll wheel doesn't work on the pick characters drop down menu, I know that there are only 2, and for supporters 5 characters to pick from but it shouldn't be too hard to make it work? ;)

AdminJonathan October 27 2005 11:55 AM EDT

"The mousewheel now controls opponents on left nav bar"

AdminShade October 27 2005 12:10 PM EDT

D'oh, i knew that.

any chance of making it work for the character drop down list?

maybe // no


YOU October 28 2005 9:37 AM EDT

where's YOU's Wheel? A nice one like this for forging is very cool also.

[SIBT]Gardiner Amarth October 29 2005 8:19 AM EDT

Hehe this is cool...thanks!

Reebok November 4 2005 10:15 PM EST

Interesting that I was using IE the entire time, and before my wheel never worked, and now it does...
