This app sits in your taskbar, and uses a simple mousehook to simulate keystrokes to the game window. It does not modify the game resources in any way. Tested on WinXP/Vista/Win7.
-- Enables the mousewheel to scroll most game menus
-- Enables the mousewheel to zoom in and out the galaxy map
-- Clicking middle mouse will autosave, then end your turn (great habit to prevent 'timewarps' in multiplayer)
-- Added functionality for mouse thumb buttons, if your mouse has them. Thumb button 1 will cancel out of any screen (same as hitting ESC), and Thumb button 2 will cycle through your fleets

This helper app is designed to work with DOSBox games of Moo2 *only*
None, although some menus in Moo2, such as the Planets Screen, scroll backwards (Wheel down scrolls up). This is a coded feature of Moo2 that cannot be changed. Also, if you are using 3rd party mouse software, such as Logitech Setpoint, the thumb buttons may not be recognized if you have customized your mouse keys.
For myself, this really helps streamline managing massive colony/fleet lists.
