That's different. :)  And yes, it takes time to get used to that.

Not much; don't like them. But absolutely mouse up == look up.

I have a friend who always reverses the Y-axis for some reason.
Whenever I try to play on his machine I spend the whole game staring
at my feet :)

...of course, it gives me a good excuse for why I'm such a terrible player :D

I agree. But as far as I can tell, that's hard-coded in Myth. And, not
sure how many people remember it (ie/ have been around long enough),
but it didn't always behave this way. At first, jumping went the way I
expect. Then someone submitted a patch to reverse it (which I removed
from my tree) and then the ChanUp/ChanDown binding was added (which I
also removed from my tree). And that was back in the days when all the
key bindings were hard-coded.

...when we had to walk up-hill to school. Both ways. In blinding snow storms. :)

In my case the GAF is highest when it doesn't "randomly" jump around
in the recording while she's trying to adjust the timestretch, etc. :)

I've also noticed that the number+left/right doesn't work "properly"
(which is to say, the way it used to work) anymore. I'll have to find
some time to look into that, too.

And "I" on the Watch Recordings screen doesn't bring up the menu
anymore :(  It brings up the recording details... I already had a
button for that. :(

Yes, I knew about both of those "issues" --- to some extent ---
already, while they were discussed on-list. I just hadn't realized
anything had been done to break... er, I mean "fix" them already :) :)
:) :)

(Please don't argue the merits or otherwise of those recent
adjustments. We've all read about them to death on the list already. I
will find my solution :) )
