  • great work

  • do i need the gentoll thing to play?

  • Thanks man

  • Thanks again for your tutorials!! Unfortunately I'm having the same issue with scrolling (I have to hold right click to scroll rather than simply scrolling) that I had fixed for offline play. I fixed it for offline by getting rid of the win code and making it full screen. However game ranger automatically launches it as a window mode… I did the tutorial on borderless full screen and that worked but I still can't scroll normally… I notice in the coding window that also launches it has the win code… How can I fix either the scrolling issue or the launching into a window issue? Thanks again for all your help!!!!
