Hi everyone. I recently installed SWOS 2020 on my Mac, after 8 years of being in the SWOS wilderness ;-) I'm so excited, but trying to control my expectations - I don't want to build up my hopes just yet. I just have a couple of questions. I really hope someone can help/advise me. I'm British, but I live in Botswana and there's a lack of IT/gaming resources here, especially retro gaming.

Firstly, I'm looking to replicate my good old days of when I used to play SWOS via my Amiga1200. I used to use an old Sega mega drive control pad, as I didn't like using a joystick (I couldn't adapt to a joystick). I've searched online and found a Sega Genesis Controller (USB), but there are a couple of sites that have said Macs can struggle to recognise USB controllers. Is this true?

Secondly, I am able to start using SWOS 2020 on my Mac without a controller (I just can't play games), BUT when I try to VIEW RESULTS and press ENTER on my keyboard, it doesn't work. The ENTER key works for everything else, but it won't when I'm trying to VIEW RESULTS. I tried to press every single key and none of them will show me the match results?!? Has anyone else experienced this and did you find a solution?

Thanks so much for your time.

USB controllers on MAC are totally fine.

Do not press ENTER to PLAY MATCH. Fire = CTRL ;)
Or go to OPTIONS / CONTROLS and define your own fire keys!

Hello. Unfortunately pressing CTRL doesn't do anything neither. There isn't the option to go to OPTIONS and can change anything relating to keyboards. I've included a screenshot to show you which button I'm talking about. When in career mode, when I want to view the results, pressing enter (or return) does nothing and can't view results of games. Yet pressing enter allows me to exit or change players or view the other team. It just won't work on the view results button.

Select KEYBOARD LAYOUT B and tick option "Left CTRL = Right CTRL" in ASWOS launcher. Restart game.

Then, the CTRL key will work!

I think I'm going to annoy you... but is there a website or a link to somewhere on this site that highlights the keys needed when you don't have a games control or joystick? I don't know how to increase or decrease my offers with transfers. I'm sure they'll be other keys needed that I'm not aware of. Thank you.

Do not use mouse! Use keyboard (CTRL for fire), hold fire and press up/down to change amount.
Please regard original manual for all of these questions:

Thanks for the link. I haven't been using a mouse. I can't use the mouse because the cursor disappears when you try to use it on SWOS. CTRL and ARROW UP/DOWN didn't work, but by accident I discovered to increase or decrease an offer is CTRL + CMD + UP/DOWN ARROW. Sorted. Thanks for your time.
