Unhappy Can't control my games!

I was wondering if somebody could help me out. I just downloaded the latest version of WinUAE and also the KickStart Rom 1.3. I went to load up my game (Super Cars 2) and everything works fine, game loads and everything. Problem is that I can't seem to get my control system working.

I don't have any joysticks or anything, I am simply trying to control the game using a keyboard (which is built into my laptop obviously) and a mouse.

Can anyone suggest what the right settings would be for my keyboard and mouse to work? It's driving me nuts!

Press F12 to bring up Winuae options, go to the input section and select the keyboard layout preference you want. Some games used the mouse port so there is a convenient swap ports button if you still have no control.

Good luck

Tried it!

I did that, still didn't seem to work. Do you think it's because i'm using a laptop rather than a standard keyboard?

I will try playing around with it again tonight!

Thanks for your help!

Some laptops lack a right control key, which is a problem if you use the keyboard layout " B" control for joystick replacement. Try using layout "C" which, I think, use T, B, F, H and the left ALT key as the firebutton.
