Hope all the Plan Z devs can at least take a look at this, it is a games accessibility guide written by developers, and gamers with disabilities.

all of this is native to most game engines and or required for non-impared peoples as well due to customization and 3D environment issues. also I always set the mouse sensitivity high, cause I'm working with a simple track pad.

as for interfacing, I have made NO efforts to stop programs from interfacing with it, I however make no guarantees that it will work if said inputs don't at least attempt to look like they came from a  keyboard or mouse. proprietary programs sometimes attempt to interject strings upon virtual key presses, thats not gonna work.
There is always another way. But it might not work exactly like you may desire.

A wise old rabbit once told me "Never give-up!, Trust your instincts!" granted the advice at the time led me on a tripped-out voyage out of an asteroid belt, but hey it was more impressive than a bunch of rocks and space monkies.

I know I raised the question with CoT. I don't follow any Plan Z project anymore, but they had a thread here: http://cityoftitans.com/forum/what-are-accessibility-features-disabled-you-would-have It's probably been superseded by something more recent.
I used CIT before they even joined the Titan network! But then I left for a long ol' time, and came back. Now I edit the wiki.

I'm working on sorting the Lore AMAs so that questions are easily found and linked: http://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Lore_AMA/Sorted Tell me what you think!
