    I play Unreal Tournament 2k4, normally with a regular optical mouse, but it broke on me. I tried to play with my Wacom tablet (Graphire4 A6 CTE-440) but I encountered a major problem during play.

    When I used the mouse wheel to scroll through my weapons, the camera did a near 180 degree spin with each notch of the wheel. It made the game near unplayable (it'd take months to retrain myself to use the number keys). I didn't change any of my settings when I switched to the wacom tablet. I looked at the controls for any possible mix-ups but there were none. My tablet's mouse settings are identical to my regular mouse settings (one wheel notch scrolls 3 lines in a window).

    Is there a way to fix this, or do I have to buy a new optical mouse?

    UT3 undoubtedly was not designed with tablets in mind so there were bound to be snafus. But you might try rebinding the controls (even if the buttons are actually the same by going to change weapon up and down and rebinding them using hte tablet.

    You might also try drastically lowering the ingame mouse sensitivity. Those are my best guesses.

    hey man,

    I have this same problem, and i found your post by searching through google. Now, i figured out how to fix this problem, but unfortunately, because you are using a different wacom tablet than i am (i am on an intuos3) , im not sure if this will help you. I'll post this here anyways just incase anybody else happens across this thread.

    To solve this, i went into the wacom tablet properties control panel. In here, atleast with the intuos3, the user can customize how the wacom mouse and pen behave in a program by program basis. So, i created a new application for unreal tournament 3 and changed the mouse scroll wheel from its default scroll setting into two keystrokes i knew the game wasn't using (page up and page down) and then a made those two keys the change weapon buttons inside unreal 3. Little to say, this completely solved the issue.

    So ya, i hope this helps you out (if you haven't already fixed this glitch or moved on to a different game)
