can't zoom with sniper (even when remapping key)
Posted 08 December 2008 - 04:26 AM
Basically, I can't zoom in or out with the sniper rifle, or scroll on the computers at TW@.
Both of those are mapped by default to mousewheel up and down, and I play on a touchpad on a laptop, and have no "mousewheel" (there's a strip on the touchpad that works as a scroller tool in most things, but it doesn't seem to work in GTA4).
I remapped sniper zoom to regular keys, but they don't do anything when I press them (I've completed sniping missions so far just by sniping from all the way zoomed out). Also, I don't even know if you can map scrolling on the TW@ computers, it's not in the config.
Right now I've completed many missions (including some in Alderney) and as far as I can tell I need to do more for Brucie to continue. However, the Brucie mission I'm up to requires me to use a computer at TW@ and scroll it, so I'm stuck and can't continue with the story now.
Anyone have any ideas?

No idea wtf is going on.

Does anyone have a solution please...

You can try an OS-level key remap to change any key of choice to Scroll Wheel...there are tons of free apps around to get the job done, google around

It didn't prevent me from doing any mission, like the construction yard mission for Playboy but it's still annoying...

the reason why no one has posted is because we know how stressful GTA IV is on a desktop computer, let alone a laptop
anyway, i agree with the above post, use the mouse for your missions when its needed and unplug it when it isn't?

|The same issue here. I can't zoom in with my sniper rifle on the mission Pier 69. I've tried running across the street and killing off the people instead but that doesn't work either. Anyone come up with a solution to getting around this glitch?|
