I hate Apple but it's the laptop work gave me so I deal with it. 

 

Trying to play WOT today but my Mad Cats Mouse works for everything but World Of Tanks. 

 

The problem is that it acts like a normal browser i.e. the turret doesn't track to my mouse. 

I can only click somewhere I want turret to look. 

 

Can anyone shed some light on how to get my mouse to integrate into WOT?

I won't delete just incase anybody has this issue in future. 

 

I had to reinstall mouse drivers. Don't know what went wrong at first.

I always have to wonder what company allows employees to "contaminate" their property like that...

I had a company laptop, too, but I was supposed to use that one for... uhm... work.


Anyway, I once had a similar problem with my keyboard and flash applications. I simply switched the USB port, forcing a reinstall of the drivers and stuff. That worked.

As Apple is using Unix based OS, my guess is that you have to mount your 3rd party devices like your mouse to the system. now while installing WoT the program didn't probably recognize your mouse as mounted device, so it didn't work properly. As reinstalling the the drivers your WoT was now in the list of mountable software and it works. This is purely my guess to what happened.

 

Nowdays as all programs are graphical, many forget the -mount command and such. You have been mounted, sir (from behind)
