Running Syndicate on DOSBox on OS X… which key on the keyboard is the fire key? I had an old EA Games CD set, which ran (natively) on System 7, and the fire key was space.
So, to get Syndicate running (once installed, see my earlier article, Syndicate on DOSBox), the following commands:
mount c ~/DOSGAMES/SYND c: synd
ALT + Return to get full screen (Option + Return).
Easy, but once it is running, then which key is the fire key? Space doesn’t seem to work.
TO FIRE, LEFT-CLICK A WEAPON ICON FROM THE INVENTORY. AIM WITH THE CURSOR AND THE TARGETING ICON APPEARS. NOW RIGHT-CLICK WITH THE MOUSE TO FIRE. WHEN THE TARGETING ICON TURNS RED YOUR FOE IS WITHIN RANGE FOR THE CHOSEN WEAPON. IF YOU'RE PRESSED FOR TIME, ENTER PANIC MODE BY PRESSING BOTH MOUSE BUTTONS TOGETHER. AGENT IPA LEVELS SHOOT UP TO MAXIMUM AND THE WEAPON IS DRAWN AND FIRED AUTOMATICALLY. FOR DETAILS OF THIS SEE PANIC MODE.
Right mouse click, once you get the red target icon.
