Dragon Age: Origins and laser mouse
Is anybody playing Dragon Age: Origins, using a wireless laser mouse?
Having problems with the wheel mouse not working in the game and wondering if anyone else is having the same problem. A wireless optical mouse works great though.
I've tried Bioware's support, and Rahal has only come up with the obvious. Have I tried Compatibility Mode. Have I tried a re-install.
Yea, first DA: Origins is Win7 supported. Second, an uninstall and re-install is usually the first thing to try in a supported OS.
I kept replying back that a wireless optical mouse works but a wireless laser mouse doesn't work. He seems to keep ignoring that fact, because he never once mentioned anything about the keyboard / mouse combos. He does keep saying something to the affect of - To get the game working correctly.

I run DAO patch 1.03 on win7 64 bit with a wireless laser mouse and have no problems. Only thing I can think of is to tey new batteries. Sounds like it is your mouse that is the problem.

Same. I have no problems with my mouse at all. And it's several years old to boot now. Was one of the first lasers that Logitech came out with that was affordable.
Is the mouse a generic brand? Does the mousewheel work outside the game? If it's not a generic mouse (Logitech, MS, etc), have you tried installing the most current drivers? If so, have you tried uninstalling those drivers completely?

Its a Microsoft Wireless Desktop Laser Mouse 6000 keyboard/mouse combo.
Newest drivers installed and new batteries.
The wheel does work outside of DA: Origins.
Have tried without the drivers, the problem is what made me try with the drivers.
My Logitech optical combo works just fine on it.
I even plugged the Logitech combo into a USB port after the realizing the Microsoft wheel wasn't working. I have both the Logitech Wireless Optical combo and the Microsoft Wireless Laser combo connected at the same time. I can move around and click with the Microsoft mouse, but the Logitech just plain works.
I might just have to buy a Logitech Wireless Laser combo, and move the Microsoft to one of my other computers.
