Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

So I started playing again and have found I've completely forgotten everything about the game. (It has been eight months.)

I started an engineer and leveled him up a bit to reacquaint myself with the controls. Unfortunately, I'm already having the same problem that forced me to quit before. There's something about ship movement that puts excessive strain on my mouse hand wrist.

It's strange because, as I just pointed out in the SWTOR thread, I use the mouse exclusively for movement in that game (and every other MMO), and can play for very long periods of time without ever having any trouble. But there's something about this that's just different.

I remember the last night I played I was up to the wee hours of the morning (for me) mucking about with Methos and intrinsical. Mostly, we just fooled around, but we did run a few STFs and that was most likely the problem. In any case, when I woke up the next day, I was in so much pain; I could barely hold a fork or pen for a week, let alone a mouse.

So I gave the game up after that. But I've been having Trek fever of late (who hasn't?) and was hoping the game would give me a needed fix.

I've tried keyboard turning. Suffice it to say that's not happening. I've also tried fiddling with the various camera and mouse sensitivity settings, but nothing seems to help.

Anyone have any ideas?
