Is it possible, in either the official DOSBox release, or in any of the SVN builds, to map a key to mouse movement. For example, you push the mouse forward and it sends Page Up to the emulated program, you pull the mouse back and it send Page Down.
I know you can't do this with the keymapper, but is there any way to edit the map file to do this?
I know, you're all wondering why I'd want to do this. Some early DOS games, notably Star Wars Dark Forces, won't let you assign the commands for look up and down to the mouse. You can assign every other function in the game, and you can assign them to a joystick, but you can't assign them to the mouse.
If there was a way to assign keys to mouse movement, you could fake it by having it send the keyboard commands for looking up and down when you moved the mouse forward and back. I know it wouldn't be as good as actual mouselook, but it has to beat using the keyboard or trying to play it with a joystick.
Unfortunately, it seems that the mouse is sacred and while there are bunches of programs for mapping keys to game controllers, I can't find a single program that lets you map keys to mouse functions.
Well, i did find one program that would let you map keys to the wheel, but it doesn't register in DOSBox.
