Major Havoc Mouse/Dial not working?

Now that I have spent many hours getting RU to work again with a newer version of Firefox(IE Tab works for now), I'd like to play some Major Havoc but the mouse support seems to not be working for this game.

I never tried to play any mouse/dial games on RU before so this is a new problem for me. The analog controls say "Mouse X" which is exactly what I am using with the -mouse option in my different MAME/WolfMame setups.
I have two new Groovy Game Gear dials I have been using fine for months now, but neither would respond on RU's Major Havoc. My mouse-pad did nothing as well. The windows cursor still responds to the dials and my track-pad but not RU during Major Havoc when I need it.

If anyone has any ideas on how to solve this let me know + thanks.

* EDIT *
Yes I did try the Shift + F5 toggle mouse repeatedly to no avail. I press enter, the game resets and none of my dials or trackpad works with MH.

Re: Major Havoc Mouse/Dial not working?

Are you doing full screen (not windowed)?

Yep, I tried that a few times too and nada (full screen and windowed). Good suggestion though. I will give it another go when I get a chance. It may have something to do with me using the IE Tab in Firefox which is new to me?

These dials both map as the mouse with no problems in multiple MAME versions, but I did not even see any trackpad response either on RU (and I tried unplugging and re-plugging all devices plus many reboots and reloads).

I will also try to fire up my old laptop on a different Windoze version with an older Firefox and see if the same prob is happening. Worst case I have to use an older version of Firefox so we'll see.

Your MH scores are safe here on RU until then my fellow gamers...hehe.

I had my dial controller doing directions. Try running with the dude, using a dial. No bueno. I still don't understand this game, and I'd actually forgotten all about it.

Re: Major Havoc Mouse/Dial not working?

I tried it and I can't get the mouse to work either. I've never seen that happen on any other game here. No idea why and I'm really busy with other stuff right now. I don't have time to investigate.
