May be some one has already mentioned, but there is no left-handed mouse support at all. Do something with it, i like to have comfortable playing.

Sorry, I'll have to say this:
Left-handed Moose Support? :)
Take your time and submit a name to the Names Database.

This will be implemented only after Left-Trunk Elephant Support. :P

Left hand mouse support is configured within Windows itself. In Windows 2000 professional, go to the control panel, select mouse, and on the buttons tab there is a radio button for left-handed. This is then active in all applications you use under windows with its mouse driver. I think this is much simpler than coding in a key mapping utility like FPS games have so that you can redo all the keys, since we're not talking about a real time game. I don't use XP, but I expect it's a similar set of steps to configure it as well.

Yes, you are right. But application must be coded that it looks for 'primary' and 'secondary' button and not for 'left' and 'right' buttons. It is easy as that, but I did not tried Xenocide, so I am not sure whether it is working there.
