Ports of Call Cursor Keys

If I did not remember wrong you used the cursor keys to steer the ship in ports on the Amiga, but I can not get it to work on WinUae in any way.

No matter what config I try, the cursor keys does NOT steer the ship and using the mouse to steer the ship is to hard, does anyone knows a setup in WinUae to use the cursor keys to steer the ships? or can't you use the cursor keys in the Amiga version of Ports of Call?

Cursor keys may be assigned as joystick input, try to turn off joystick emulation.

I don't think you can use the cursor keys but the mouse works. You just drag the forward and reverse controls and the left right rudder bar on the bottom right of the screen. I think the real Amiga version was the same as this.

Then it was probably the PC DOS version you've remembered. The keys in the manual are PC keys. Just tried it on my real Amiga. Keys don't work for steering.
