Which key is the fire key in Syndicate

Preamble

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.

 

Manual

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.
