    Be aware right click is not implemented at this time. The author is brain storming the best way to implement this feature in a future release. That being said quite a few games are fully playable without it at this time.

    I think the simplest way of implementing right click would be to bind it to a tap hold event.

    Edit
    Actually I just looked at the link and it's pretty much what he's suggesting

    First off, let me offer major props to the guys putting this port together. I tried the old version for the first time a couple of days ago and liked what I saw. The new version smooths out all of the audio and graphics issues I was seeing. Glad to be able to carry around so many games old games that work incredibly with a touch screen.

    Quick question though, is there a way to disable the or hide the mouse and escape key options if you're using a bluetooth mouse and keyboard?

    Alexander (port developer) has told me that this option is meaningless. So mouse panel can't be disabled. Keep in mind that right click doesn't work with Bluetooth mouse.

    But you can request this feature on the KPDA forum. ;-}

    I just took a quick look at the forum and the language the forum runs on will probably prevent me from posting there.

    There should be an update along shortly for the PB to allow the right click to work as a two finger tap on the new keyboard/touchpad combo, I'd imagine they'll extend this to regular bluetooth mice as well.

    Please, look a bit deeper: How to switch language of forum interface?

    Hm-m-m... I'm not sure. Right mouse button is used for gestures.

    It works GREAT! Only think needed now is some form of keyboard input in order to enter the protection codes (like in Monkey Island II) in order to start the game. Other than that, the other games I have tested (and Sierra games as well such as Kings Quest) work a treat!
