Is it possible to play OpenTTD with a Magic Trackpad?

The game uses a rigth-click and move mouse while pressed to move around map, and it is almost only way to move around. It is possible to do this movement with the Magic Trackpad?

In OpenTTD's advanced settings, you can configure Command-Click to behave as right click. Then you can hold Command to move.

Thanks, but will this allow me to do moveing around the map (move map to up/down/left/right)? Will this work on Windows OS? – osgx Feb 9 '12 at 0:16
@osgx Yes, that's exactly what it does. It allows you to Cmd-Click-and-drag instead of Right-click-and-drag. I don't know whether that option is present on Windows. I assumed you were on OS X since Windows Explorer e.g. uses the same gesture. There a topic on Apple Stack Exchange about it that might help you. – Daniel Beck Feb 9 '12 at 3:54
This method requires a keyboard and is bit uncomfortable. There is no such option in latest beta. – osgx Feb 11 '12 at 0:00
But, there is an option "Left-click scrolling" which solves my problem. And the interectin fact is that action from click+drag from left button and right button differs. Both buttons allows me to scroll map with this option. – osgx Feb 11 '12 at 0:09

Well, apparently you can hold the control button while clicking, or you can set your system for two fingered clicks equaling right-clicking. The former seems to be a more sensible option in your scenario.

just checked. Ctrl-click is not equal a right click on windows. Clicking with 2 fingers is clicking, but if I ll move both finger after that - is will be scrolling. Again, I need a "move while left button is pressed" – osgx Mar 23 '11 at 23:45
