Excellent trackpad use in games

Recommended Posts

Most games don't utilise one of the greatest assets unique to the MacBook - the excellent trackpad. In most games moving the trackpad or two-finger gestures are restricted to 'zoom' functions. However I've noticed that in some games e.g. Baldur Gate Enhanced Edition, the trackpad's two-finger gesture functions as a proper scroll. This is great because with the maps being zoomed way out (due to the high resolution) it's an ideal way to zip around the map quickly.

It's a shame that the new set of Infinity Engine style games (Torment, Pillars of Eternity) don't use the trackpad nearly as well!
