Hell's Gate wargame running in a browser on itch.io

This is an example of a game built using the new monogame Web framework, running in itch.io

It’s a computerised version of a hex and counter wargame I did during lockdown a few years back.
Everything works well apart from mousewheel support for scrolling the map in and out - this get’s intercepted by the browser so never gets handled as input to the game.

I ran into some issues with porting to the Web framework but nothing too difficult to solve.

Hey, jonathanmcc!

Update the index.html in your project as in this commit, to prevent the onmousewheel event to reach the outer page.


I applied the code fix and mouse wheel scrolling now works perfectly.
(itch.io version not updated yet)

Many thanks again for your efforts.


I uploaded the fix to itch.io. It partially works:
In Chrome it works using Shift–>MouseWheel. MouseWheel by itseld also activate the scrollbar on the page.
It does not work in Firefox - either with or without Shift pressed.

I have not tried other browsers.
